I was just going to write about the Daft Punk album that dropped this week, but I’ve discovered so many other “electronic” tracks I love recently! Here is a playlist of a few new favorites, one of which is “Do you…like drugs.” I think you’ll find the songs all add a little addictive beat in the background of your life. Subscribe to the playlist on rdio here.
Besides being a music streaming service that syncs to all of my mobile devices, rdio is my favorite place for music discovery. When I log into my Rdio account, without fail on my “Heavy Rotation” page, there is always an album by a band I’ve never heard of that I instantly fall in love with. This week, Elizabeth Harper’s voice and the bouncy, swag beat of Class Actress grabbed me. I want to spin to it, get dressed to it, do laundry to it. The sound makes me feel sexy no matter what I’m doing!
Andrew McMahon, the lead singer of Jack’s Mannequin (that I have loved for a while now), released an EP last month I’ve been trying to get into. He has such a good heart that is based in an incredible life story. When he puts it all to music, I feel blessed in my life.
As for Daft Punk, like everyone else I’ve been anticipating their new songs. For the first time, the duo used real instruments and a synthesizer instead of a computer, which seems impressive. It’s fun and mesmerizing as the single “Get Lucky” suggested.
Also included here is Miguel with some R&B action. Love, a fellow SoulCycle trainee, played “Do you….” the other day to start her class and had us all bouncin’ on the bike. Seductive would be an understatement :)
If you have any bands you’re loving right now, I would love to hear about them. Please leave your love notes in the comments below!
