Catch Of The Week: Cool Kids Edition

Here's some good dancey electronic music that the cool kids like. And, coincidentally, is also very catchy and delicious.

Salem - Whenusleep

Salem is kinda blowing up. At least on the P4K, GvB, and Stereogums. But you know what? I don't mind. 'Cause this shit is awesome. Dark, fuzzy, echoey, and the name of the city I live in. It actually feels kinda lame listening to Salem while living in Salem but hey. Let's face it. I'm kinda lame.

Fan Death - The Constellations

Fan Death sounds a little bit like The Knife. Thankfully, it's not like they're a Knife rip off or anything. They just have a female singer and do the dark electro thing, except Fan Death is much more focused on the disco.

Human People - Just Like Honey

In case you couldn't guess from the title, this is Human People covering The Jesus & Mary Chain classic. Normally this isn't my kinda thing but you know what? This is actually a really solid cover. I'm not saying it's better than the original or anything. But sometimes certain shoegaze songs need to be vamped up and made into awesome dance jams. Thanks Human People!
