Best Songs Ever
"Games Without Frontiers" showcases the more Britcentric predecessor to "Slegehammer" era Peter Gabriel. The new-wave anti-war track, taken from Gabriel's 1980 self-titled LP, was the ex-Genesis front man's first UK Top 10 single.
BitCandy recently blew the dust from Nicolas Jaar's "Space Is Only Noise" and took it for a spin in an attempt to reach post-holiday inner-peace, man. Now we have a more contemporary slice of slinky Jaar minimalism to trip out to: "With Just One Glance You" features guest vocals by Scout LaRue.
Best new songs: On February 28th, quasi-shoegazers, School of Seven Bells, will release "Ghostory," their third album, and first as a duo. Vagrant Records have just dropped LP taster, "The Night," a dreamy dance jam intersected with some gnarly new-wave guitar licks.
