Let’s get into it.
1. “Reflektor” – Arcade Fire
Famously leaked onto the web a week ago, days before its official release, Arcade Fire’s new single “Reflektor” is a 7+ minute feast of disco awesomeness! Their new album will drop internationally on October 28th.
Google Chrome users, if you’re happy enough to surrender control of your web cam to the “Google Machine”, the band have also released a pretty cool “interactive” music video which can be found here: justareflektor.com
One last thing… I’m just putting out out there – this track WILL be in the Top 10 for 2013’s TripleJ Hottest 100, if not the Top 5. Big, early call, but not that crazy a concept. It’s that good!
2. “Help Me Lose My Mind” – Disclosure (ft. London Grammar)
London Grammar’s debut album “If You Wait” launched last week and the world is officially a better place for it! Included up the back of the album is this great track by UK electronic duo Disclosure, featuring the unmistakable voice of London Grammar’s Hannah Reid (@Hannahfmreid).
3. “Hurricane” – Owl Eyes
Aussie songstress Owl Eyes (Brooke Addamo) recently offered up this great pop track – the 4th release from her debut album “Nightswim”. Catchy. Nice. Enjoy.

LOS ANGELES, USA
