In the immortal words of Euromotion – “My legs are so tired…but i can’t stop dancing.”

Phantogram teased us the last couple of years with a couple of excellent EPs, but with the release of Voices this year, the NY psych pop duo finally released a proper full-length follow up to the excellent 2009 LP Eyelid Movies. This track in particular really highlights the duo’s signature sound – complex production and infectious vocals.
♩ Phantogram – Celebrate Nothing [from Voices]
Halls released one of my favorite albums of 2012 with the debut LP Ark. Wasting little time, Halls dropped Love to Give this year and totally exceeded my expectations. You really need to give this entire LP a proper listen, but if you only have time for one track, “Waves” is a must.
♩ Halls – Waves [from Love to Give]
7+ minutes of chill-inducing beauty.
♩ I Break Horses – Heart to Know [from Chiaroscuro]
