Salt Cathedral - No Ordinary Man

Among the week's most Popular, the "beautifully textured and truly mesmerizing" new single from Brooklyn-by-way-of-Bogota duo Salt Cathedral may be their most subtle and intricate to date, says Turntable Kitchen.

Viola Beach - Swings & Waterslides

Chosen by many a music site as "ones to watch" for 2016, tributes poured in for the hotly-tipped band from northern England (sadly, all four members and their manager died in a car accident Saturday while on tour) along with a campaign to get this single to #1.

et aliae - Sober (feat. D∆WN)

A new EP from London-based, Singapore-raised experimental pop producer et aliae arrives next month on Cascine. She leads things off here with a silky ballad that plays on "contrasting dark and light energies" and features vocals from the ever-versatile D∆WN.

Club cheval - Young Rich And Radical

The French collective comprising Canblaster, Myd, Panteros666 and Sam Tiba is responsible for an extensive body of remixes (The Weeknd, Underworld) and solo works, but March will see the release of the supergroups's first full-length as Club Cheval.

Danny! - Constellations

Questlove-signee Danny! considers the stars (and our own relationships) in this new cut from upcoming project The Book Of Daniel, building his sonic galaxy from "jazz, vaporwave, and Outkast," says The FADER.

Murals - Violet City Lantern

Violet City Lantern, the debut full length LP from Louisville psych-rock trio Murals.

Mic on the how Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" became a protest anthem.

“'The whole damn place went nuts,' said Davey D, who attended the convening in Cleveland. 'You were moved. There was no way you could just sit back and not feel the effect of that song. Everybody was singing in unison. It was like being at church.'"

Thanks for listening!

- Dave, Dev & Team Hype Machine
