I’ve decided to make more work for myself with diSKOAver weekly! So exciting!
I feel like it’s not fair to the bands I feature in this playlist to not give them the same amount of love I do with all the other features I do so I’ve decided to do a tweets worth of info on each track because after all sharing is caring and boy do I give so many fucks about putting these songs in your hands.
OKAY HERE WE GO!
This cut from the new Moon Boots record is my personal slice of discotastic heaven. The rest of the record is super fun, too.
DallasK - “I Know”
Gonna be honest, kind of embarrassed that I’m just now getting into DallasK but damn I picked a fucking banger to get on board.
Mason - “Rhythm In My Brain”
Honestly it’s not fair that Mason is so perfect. And he’s SO CASUAL about dropping so many bops. This one is SUCH 💥A 💥VIBE💥.
Los Padres - “Boomerang (feat. Nina Sung)”
Holy shit my home state over here making me SO PROUD with this house hitttttttttt. Def gonna be keeping an eye out on this duo for what they do next. 👀👀👀
RAAVE TAPES - “stabs”
I have been OBSESSED with this song since I heard it. They’re like a lovely intersection of The Rapture, Does It Offend You Yeah, Crystal Castles, and Late of the Pier. I WANT MORE DANCE PUNK LIKE THIS. GIVE IT TO ME
CRX - “Walls”
Fun fact: Josh Homme from QOTSA produced this whole record. Love how fucking high energy this is. Oh and Nick Valensi from The Strokes is the singer so you know these dudes aren’t fuckin around.
Tomos - “An Intermission”
If I could float around in space to this I would be pretty hype about it. No, I’m not high.
Cashmere Cat - “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY”
This new single is quite lovely and I’m very happy that they’ll be playing Webby Hall in December.
Sparrows - “Do U Wanna Dance?”
Something about the synths in this makes me think of “Sync” from the FEZ soundtrack but more energetic and that pleases me very much.
Rejje Snow - “LMFAO”
I need to spend more time with Rejje’s last record that this track is from. It’s very much my shit, but I bet you’ll be able to tell why this one was my favorite. 😂
AJ Abdullah - “Oh, the Moon!”
HOW SWEET IS HIS VOICE!? HOW SWEET IS THIS FUCKIN’ SONG!? I’m glad I decided to check my email before I pulled tracks for this week’s update today. This was such a delightful surprise.
MXMS - “What’s My Name?”
This one is a real gut punch. Funeral pop duo MXMS released this on World Suicide Prevention Day and if it doesn’t make your eyes water a little bit you might be dead inside?????????
Sego and Vacationer teamed up to cover Kendrick Lamar and it’s just so….. *chef’s kiss*
My good friend and neighborhood troubadour Jesse Ruben introduced me to Hunjiya (born Alice Kim) when I ran into him on the street a few weeks ago and was like, “you’d fucking love Alice’s music” AND HE WAS RIGHT. Her new EP is FANTASTIC.
Sam Hollis - “Miranda”
I have been sitting on this Sam Hollis jam for way too long (Sorry Sam). Even though he’s homeys with Timi Temple it’s TOTALLY DIFFERENT VIBE A BOY DO I MEAN VIIIIBBBBEEEE.
Hundredth - “Whatever”
So this band gradually pivoted from essentially hardcore to shoegaze and it…..totally fucking works. The older stuff is fine, but they really wear this new direction INCREDIBLY WELL.
IF YOU’VE STUMBLED INTO THIS POST AFTER I’VE SWAPPED OUT THESE TRACKS DO NOT PANIC!! I GOTCHU FAM! You can grab these (and a fuckload more music) over in the archive.
