I'm switching it up a bit and including some more mainstream songs in this post. I sometimes have to counteract my hipster instinct and convince myself that just because a lot of other people like the song, it is no less worthy of my own ability to like said song. Also, I'm highlighting a genre I have not typically posted about in the past: electro-pop, techno, house, dance-tastic music!
Swedish House Mafia: Don't You Worry Child
Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch: Sweet Nothings
Memory Tapes: Sheila
(ignore the model face, & just listen)The lead track off the new album Grace/Confusion, coming in at just over 8 1/2 minutes, this song is enough to kick-start any party. Somehow this electro-pop manages to stay interesting, keeping the same chord progression, but creating different variations on the motif. It knows when to build and when to ebb and how to get your feet a'tapping.
Florence + The Machine: Spectrum (Say My Name) Calvin Harris Remix
