(31) Days of Good: 12.4.13

A few of my favorite Summer 2013 jams…

 

holy_ghost!_teenagers_in_heat

James Murphy co-produced this track and even though it didn’t make the final cut for the band’s 2013 LP (Dynamics) it’s still a must listen. In my opinion, the track is so good, it deserved it’s own separate release.

♩ Holy Ghost! – Teenagers in Heat [single]

kavinsky_odd_look

Ever wonder how to make a good track great? Have The Weeknd remix it is one way. I really wish Kavinsky and The Weeknd will team up for a full length. Make it happen boys.

♩ Kavinsky – Odd Look (ft. The Weeknd) [from OddLook EP]

daft_punk_random_access_memories

“Get Lucky” gets all the love, and it’s a great track as well, but I don’t think i’ll ever get tired of this particular track, which features Panda Bear (Animal Collective) on vocals.

♩ Daft Punk – Doin’ it Right (feat. Panda Bear) [from Random Access Memories]

Purity-Ring-Grammy

Probably my favorite cover of 2013. Personally, I find Soulja Boy’s original uninspired, but this track is anything but. The production and vocals are spot on. Honestly, Purity Ring could cover One Direction and I’d love it.

♩ Purity Ring – Grammy (Soulja Boy cover) [single]

the_orwells_who_needs_you

The average age of this foursome is 18.5, but don’t let that fool you. These Chicago rockers carried a well deserved buzz from 2012 into a breakout 2013. I first heard this song on NPR: All Songs Considered, while in the middle relocating from Southern to Northern California. There’s really nothing good about an 8 hour drive, but this song definitely made it better. No joke, I probably listened to this track at least 20 times in a row on that trip.

♩ The Orwells – Who Needs You [from Who Needs You EP]

Deafheaven-Sunbather

And speaking of the aforementioned 8 hour drive, 10 minutes of good ole’ fashioned metal does wonders.
