Chairlift - I Belong In Your Arms (Hype 0176)

Great track from outfit Chairlift. Alittle bit of eighties pop mixed with upbeat 2000 synth goodness. I can't stop playing this record.

Battles feat. Matias Aguayo - Ice Cream

Video: http://youtu.be/3FsvMyQeC-Q

Here's a track from the 2011 Album "Gloss Drop" by Battles. This album is more melodic than the band's 2007 debut "Mirrored" but both albums are worth listening to if you enjoy the band's relatively unique style.
