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."

The gurgling, grimy soundscapes of electronic artist Tricky are familiar by now; when they get the remix treatment from the talented likes of Moscillate, they sound wholly fresh, fascinating and even more seductive.

Song of the Day: 'Riddles' by Old Wave

Opening with guazy folk-tronica and shifting into a tense but still spectral indie-rock sound, "Riddles" by Portland, Oregon band Old Wave (formerly known as Adam Brock 4; good call on changing names) is nothing if not hard to solve, even as it's quite an inviting listen.

Song of the Day: 'Under Daisies' by Monogold

Brooklyn, New York's Monogold takes a looping, dreamy, quasi-electronic approach on the new track "Under Daisies." Flower power has rarely sounded so contemporary or so lush.

Charting the Music: ODESZA, 'In Return'

Existing somewhere between chillwave, dream pop and trip hop, Seattle duo ODESZA manage to create a unique sound in a saturated field of music. On the sophomore album "In Return" ODESZA has developed from just another bass-and-sample glo-fi act to a mature and sophisticated duo.

Song of the Day: '2001' by Arum Rae

"There's no hope for myself trying to be a good pearl," sings Arum Rae on the brooding "2001." "Tried to walk the line and see the light/But as the sun sets, the lonelier I get." Backed by grimy electro-blues and with her voice filtered as if through a cistern, she doesn't just sound haunted. She sounds like she has personal hellhounds on her trail.

Song of the Day: 'The Right Way' by Cassorla

Ben Cassorla has been a go-to helping hand for bands like Washed Out and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, but he also dabbles in solo work as Cassorla. The new single, "The Right Way," is pure digital bedroom pop for guitar riff-loving people.

When Spoon's Britt Daniel talked to KDHX's Kevin Korinek, he described the band's new album, "They Want My Soul," as one for playing on a car stereo. With shimmery synthesizers and guitar pedal work, the live possibilities of taking this beautiful production piece out of the car, combing it with their past efforts is daunting.
