Mass Appeal Music Of The Month So Far July Part 2

Music of the Month – July ’14 (Part 2)

July’s been a strong month for new music, so here we are with another wrap up of our favorite cuts.

We just couldn’t wait for a new Lunice track, and thankfully our prayers were answered with “Can’t Wait To,” while frequent Flume collaborator Chet Faker lent some of his smooth Australian vocals to a track with GoldLink. Simian Mobile Disco strayed a bit for their minimalistic sound and gave us a little more depth with “Tangents,” and young Floridian XXYYXX supplied us with the experimental/developmental “Zygote.”

Detroit‘s’ Boldy James crunches numbers in his bangin’ new single “Crunchin,” while on the East Coast old collaborators and friends reunited in the shape of The Alchemist-produced “Sharks” with NYC’s grittiest, Mobb Deep. Alt-J proved that they are more than a one trick pony with the release of “Left Hand Free,” a pretty substantial departure from their previous sound. Speedy Ortiz demands “A Bigger Party” through aggressive guitars carried by a funky bass line, while on the other side of the Atlantic, London’s Childhood wax poetically about acceptance in “As I Am.”

The hit single “Pools” by UK act Glass Animals got reworked by fellow Brit Kwes, while Jessie Ware took a Swiss approach by enlisting Cyril Hahn for a remix of her latest single “Tough Love.” Jay Z hopped on Young Jeezy’sSeen It All,” finally delivering a verse almost at the caliber we expect from him. Recent Software signee and Louisiana native Suicideyear kept it bright and simple with “Hope Building A,” and Sean Price kept it real, as always, by spitting over the beat DJ Premier crafted for Joey Badass on “Unorthodox P.”

Dilated Peoples shows us that they still have it with “Show Me The Way,” assisted by Aloe Blacc. Willis Earl Beal came through with a stripped-down, hauntingly-beautiful ballad by the name of “Until We Die,” and Ryan Adams finally returned to music with something great in the form of “Gimme Something Good” off his upcoming self-titled record.
