L.A.'s jesse saint john returns with his newest single, FAKE IT, encouraging us to do just the opposite. With jesse saint john's infectious blend of synthpop, futuristic beats, and shoutalong choruses, he encourages us to "go through the motion of emotion," "fake it until we feel it."
Just this morning I was reminded that the best part of waking up is a hot steamy playlist full of the catchiest pieces of ear candy from around the interwebs. Today we’ve got some new music from jesse saint john, GRAACE, Noah Cyrus, and more.
As I repeatedly listened to Comatose by the mysterious new duo OutsideOUTSIDE, it reminded me of an anecdote from Emotional Intelligence about how falling in love triggers the same parts of the brain as taking hallucinogens.

The sun is radiating heat over Los Angeles today and I’m in an unusually good spirit. Could it be that this week’s Best of Indie Pop songs are rubbing off their good vibes on me? Lend an ear to the following songs from Drake, Louis The Child, Alison Wonderland and more.
Darci is the newest neon light in nocturnal hip-hop. On My Own is the anonymous duo's tenth single, to date. The temperature rises with each subsequent release. Boiling point should soon be reached and we don't doubt we'll hear a lot more about this mysterious unit, probably before year's end.
It's that time of the week when We Are: The Guard once again encourage you to unplug from the mad rush of social media, and instead immerse yourself in the latest edition of Best Chill Songs from Chrome Sparks, Jungle, Nina Nesbitt, and plenty of others.
This week, we round up our favorite Instagram posts, to help you keep up-to-date on the newly-forged covenant between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, as well as the Heavenly Bodies from the Met Gala.
