Song of the Day: 'Every Drop' by Thad Kopec

The simple tones that open "Every Drop" are signifiers of the aesthetic purity that Thad Kopec yearns for -- and finds in this warmly unfolding, deceptively lush, acoustic-electronic song.

Swedish band Blind Lake is Lotta Wenglén (guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, vocals) and Måns Wieslander (guitar, drums, bass, vocals), a duo who, on the new track "Walk Beside Me," seems less interested in making synth-pop singles than in making psychedelic, ambient and, yes, synth-pop soundtracks for contemporay film noirs that exist only in their and their listeners minds.

Song of the Day: 'Blameless' by CaveofswordS

What first impresses on "Blameless," the new single by St. Louis-based electronic-music group CaveofswordS, is simply the melody: the way it flows in and out and around and through the host of percussive and synthetic textures. The melody is carried by Sunyatta McDermott's seraphic voice, but it's also absolutely inseparable from each musical element. In short: "Blameless" is glorious.

Song of the Day: 'Stacks on Stacks' by Bouquet

On the new track "Stacks on Stacks," the minimalism of electronic-pop band Bouquet serves as a wide and open canvas for subtle textures and just as subtle but always vivid strokes of emotion and harmony.

The Beyoncé/Beck mashup "Single Loser (Put a Beck on It)" was probably inevitable. As it turns out, Beckyoncé's track serves as a pretty catchy (how could it not be?) and playfully ironic commentary on the whole Kanye vs. Beck Grammy kerfuffle.

Song of the Day: 'Weeks' by Autumn in June

Enigmatic Los Angeles-based musician Autumn in June makes electronic music that unites late-night contemplation with even-later-night dance-floor grooves. "Weeks" is chilled-out electro-pop, but not so chilled out as to leave the hooks behind.

Song of the Day: 'No One Is Lost' by Stars

If you didn't know better, you'd think "No One Is Lost," the title track to the new album by Canadian band Stars, was cut in a closed-down gay discotheque in Montreal. Turns out you really didn't know better, and the song (like the album) was in fact recorded just above said disco. It's a state-of-the-art, dance-pop track from a band that still has some surprises up its glitter-covered sleeves.

Charting the Music: Aphex Twin, 'Syro'

The ‘90s may be long gone and Top 40 radio may be awash with cookie-cutter EDM tracks, but Aphex Twin keeps his influentially artistic take on electronic music alive with his latest album, “Syro.”

Song of the Day: 'Chorus' by Moonbabies

The Swedish duo of Ola Frick and Carina Johansson, who've been making music together since the late '90s as Moonbabies, have decisively departed from their shoegazy origins with the beautifully-tailored, incessantly-pulsing pop of their latest single "Chorus."
