The Daily 5: a feature in which we provide at least five absolutely guilt-free MP3s every day. Check out today's goods.
The Vaccines - "Norgaard" + Daytrotter Session
Buzzy Britons, the Vaccines, have stopped by the Daytrotter studios and recorded a nice session for us, including fan faves "If You Wanna" and "Post Breakup Sex," and a track we haven't heard before, "Norgaard." Download it all at Daytrotter. The band will be releasing their What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? stateside on May 31.
CSLSX - "Keep On Shining"
We don't know much about the Philadelphia-based CSLSX, other than it's a collective of obviously talented producers with an ear for melody and disco samples. And, really, that's all you need to know. "Keep on Shining" is a keeper.
J. Cole - "Disgusting"
Roc Nation signee J. Cole dropped this b-side on Twitter yesterday. He's currently finishing up his still untitled debut album, due out sometime this Fall.
Grimes - "Fragments of the Future"
Grimes premiered this weird, cavernous new track on her mix for Pitchfork spin-off, Altered Zones. For now it's being called "Fragments of the Future," which seems like a right fit. Love it or hate it, you'll probably want to listen to it at least twice.
Fucked Up - "Queen of Hearts"
Here is another cut from Fucked Up's forthcoming new rock opera, David Comes To Life. The concept album is out June 7.
Sleep ? Over - "Bathsalts"
Austin, TX all-girl band Sleep ? Over, will be releasing their debut LP this summer. Here is an early brainfuck-y cut from the album. "Bathsalts," however, doesn't really show what Sleep ? Over have been all about lately. Lately, the band has been releasing some soulful dream-pop ditties (like "Casual Dreaming" or "Outer Limits") reminiscent of pre-Teen DreamBeach House. You can do some mp3 sleuthing right over here.
