BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL

There are few artists as confident as Kyan Palmer, which is probably why his contribution to our Indie Christmas compilation is so sweet. Palmer clearly isn't afraid to experiment with his pristine vocals, which may explain why he's filling BIG blue suede shoes this winter season.
This is that new sound. That bass-heavy house vibe with pop-rap funkiness that covers every possible quadrant of what makes a good dance music tune. I’ve heard a couple jams like this before but here it’s like an angel from heaven came down to craft the perfect version of it. Hark the herald Merk & Kremont.
Stress levels are getting higher, and tempting as it is to collapse into a blubbering mess of whiskey eggnog and Amazon packages, We Are: The Guard is here to help you make it through what's left of the holiday season with the latest edition of Top Chill Songs.
