[LP Released December 17, 2013]
I can’t believe I missed this. I loved their 2011 LP, Safari Disco Club. I even got my 10 year old sister (8 at the time) addicted to it — she’d request to hear them all the time and even though it was mostly in French, she would sing along to it the best she could. I just discovered this song last night and I think I’ve already played it at least 20 times.
When I make a list of my favorite releases for 2013 at the end of this year, My Friends Never Die will no doubt going to be on that list. Odesza released a full LP last year that is also in my top 10 releases of 2012. These guys are so brilliant and I’m so glad they’re in my life. Each song they spit has me hooked. I’m a sucker for sexy badass beats. Please make music forever, Odesza!

Badass hip-hop instrumental mixtape brought to you by Dro Carey from Sydney, Australia. All I have to say is fucking YES.
Stream the 22-track album below:
Jagwar Ma is an Australian duo that makes poppy psychedelic dance music — a discovery I was very happy to find. There’s something nostalgic about the music, but I feel like that about a lot of the music I listen to regularly. I’m totally digging the style musicians are taking nowadays. Howlin’ is a perfect thing to play when you have a gathering with your friends — it’ll keep things upbeat and spread a good feeling.
You can also stream a couple of songs here:

Check out this new track from his forthcoming LP “Guilt Trips” out Oct. 22, 2013.
Refreshing with a badass kick. Louis Futon is a duo of producers from Philadelphia. These two guys look young enough to be my kids — if I decided to have babies in high school, I mean. Maybe I just feel old when I see all these amazing young people making music that I can blast on my car or headphones.
Their short 3-song EP is currently available for free to download. Stream it here:
