Another Wednesday is upon us and I’ve got so much work to do I don’t have time for chitter chatter so I will just tell you I really like you a lot and here are five more acts you should totally check out.
File Under: This beat be automatic supersonic funky fresh
For Fans of: Yelle, MEN, Micachu and the Shapes, wearing your shirts just a little bit off the shoulder, heavy bass lines, Rubix Cubes, synthesizers, Saturday Morning Cartoons from the 80s, bangs.
Bonus: I am a bit obsessed with this band right now, but what makes them fill my world with over-the-top joy is that their soundcloud page is filled with a bunch of free downloads. My empty wallet can’t say no to that! Here’s one to whet your appetite.
