Another Saturday, another set of songs for you to sip to. Don’t miss a beat, follow our Spotify playlist WA JUICE JAMS to keep the groove moving.
Last Lynx- “Curtains” & “The Killing Switch”
Last Lynx is a group out of Stockholm that is poised to go real far with their sumptuous blend of electro, funk, indie and pop music. It may sound stupid to say, but this music just sounds good.
Starfucker (STRFKR)- Pop Song
A bouncy, tongue-in-cheek pop tune crammed through a bunch of hotwired, distorted synthesizers. An oldie (if 2008 counts as old) but a goodie.
Kelis- Jerk Ribs
We all remember Kelis’ uncomfortable hit song “Milkshake.” Perhaps inspired by her success with beverage-themed (but not really) music, her new album is entitled Food and features tracks like “Biscuits n’ Gravy,” “Cobbler” and “Breakfast.” The album (and the single “Jerk Ribs” in particular) is funky and delicious… Kelis has come a long way since that milkshake stand she set up in her yard.
St. Paul & The Broken Bones- Call Me
Soul music is alive and well, thanks in part to these unlikely heroes. St. Paul & The Broken Bones is a gang of seven really nerdy-looking white boys from Alabama who seriously know how to pull the same strings that legends like Otis Redding, James Brown and others did. Mmm, those horns.
Ana Tijoux– Vengo
Time to get out that Spanish-English dictionary from freshman year of high school (and college). Ana Tijoux is a French-Chilean songstress who (aside from being all around impressive) can spit fire. No doubt, this is your roll-up tune for the next few months.
Demitasse- Comfy Coffins
Those afternoons of hangover-induced introspection can be the best ones… with the right comfort music. After all, every special weekend has its mellow moments.
Stephen Malkmus- Chartjunk
Rock n’ roll makes us feel great, here’s an example. This little kick of rock/pop is a wryly delivered tune written about Brandon Jennings, an infamously selfish basketball player. There’s a guitar solo, a churning drum beat and some horns, plus it’s catchy. What else do you want? Go for a drive and put it on.
The The- This is the Day
There were things about the 80’s that sucked and things about the 80’s that rocked. This song is one of the things about the 80’s that rocked.
of Montreal- Gronlandic Edit
If you haven’t entered the wacky, incoherent and decidedly melodic world of mad geniuses of Montreal already, this is the perfect place to start. It’s the weirdest singalong track you’ll ever know every word to.
Be sure to follow our playlist WA JUICE JAMS on Spotify, and check in next Saturday for more music, courtesy of yours truly.
