Each week, The FADER staff rounds up the songs we can't get enough of. Here they are, in no particular order.
“Chismiten” — Mdou Moctar
The death of Eddie Van Halen this week has me feeling a deeper-than-usual appreciation of a good shred of the guitar. Touareg musician Mdou Moctar offers licks upon licks on his new song "Chismiten," a slightly psychedelic track streaked with summer hues.
"Pale" — Helena Deland
Helena Deland is here to make all your dream pop fantasies come true.
"Postcard From Spain" — Quarter Life Crisis
Electronic producer Ryan Hemsworth debuted a new project this week. Quarter Life Crisis is a series of collaborations with different artists, and Frances Quinlan is the vocalist behind the first track. "Postcard From Spain" falls somewhere between Imogen Heap and Death Cab For Cutie without sounding at all precious or derivative. If you're putting together a soundtrack for a quirky indie romance film, take note!
