Janelle Monáe is back with a soulful new track and it feels so good! Her new single “Q.U.E.E.N” features none other than Erykah Badu. We can only hope that that they plan to collaborate on more than one track. We also have a new one from Montreal’s Solar Year, who seem to be channeling one of our all time favorites Fever Ray.

Today’s two essential tracks come from Melbourne’s orchestral pop project Wintercoats and Montreal’s Mozarts sister. For this remix of Mozartz Sister’s “Don’t Leave It To Me” Candence Weapon speeds up the the tempo, chops it up an a bit and then raps a few lines over the latest production. And yes, it’s as amazing as you’re imagining it to be right now.

Only Andrew Wyatt could make the lyrics “Crackheads falling through the bannisters” sound as lovely as on “Harlem Boyzz,” the second single off his newly released album Descender. Meanwhile, across the pond, we have a rising popstar who borrows her name from Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer.” Her first single “Who Am I” sounds like it would be right at home on Gwen Stefan’s fist solo album Love. Angel. Music. Baby.

Two things can happen when you have a lot of star power on one track. The first, is that it implodes and goes down in history as one of the worst collaborations of all time. The second option, the one we always hope for, is that our ears ring with joy thanking us as every note is sung and funky bassline is strum. Lucky for you, both Poliça and Daft Punk hit the collab nail on the head with these tracks.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything new from garage-rockers Bass Drum of Death, which is why we were particularly elated to hear their new single “Shattered Me.” We were also stoked to hear on of our favorite MC’s Danny Brown was tapped to jump on the remix of Charli XCX’s “What I Like.” Brown is an outspoken fanboy of the british goth-pop princess so knew it would be a match made in heaven. He definitely gave the track that extra edge it was lacking.

Today SZA dropped her new EP S and “Aftermath” has taken the award for favorite track. We also insist that you listen to the “Meltdown” the lead single from Ghostpoet’s upcoming album Some Say I So I Say Light. It’s a perfectly executed, melancholy tune that we can all relate to.

Today’s first essential track comes from writer/producer/musician extraordinaire Max Frost. Yup, he wrote, produced, recorded and played every instrument on this track. Color us impressed.

The second track that we insist you have listen to comes from Swedish electro-pop trio NONONO. It’s the perfect spring time jam. You’ll definitely catch yourself whistling along.

Since the moment we laid ears on Beatrice Eli we haven’t stopped hyping her. “Violent Silence” will make you believe the hype. We also have a gorgeous indie-folk gem off of Collective Fossils debut album Tell Where I Lie.
