Brand new track from Hamilton's Monster Truck, "The Enforcer" is a heavy anthemic rock jam a la Dark Horse. High paced, high energy, and feat. lots of shredding and strained belting, this is a good track to kick off the weekend.

No Winners
by JP Cooper

 

JP Cooper's Messianic voice is one I'll never get sick of hearing. Saturday saw the UK phenom release "No Winners", a demo written a year ago that wasn't supposed to come out, but with the Paris tragedy leaving the world unsettled and mourning at the end of last week, Cooper elected to share it due to its alarmingly relevant message in times like these. Nice song, great message, and a sincere gesture from one of the most talented singers out there today.

Anything You Want
by Socoa

 

Brand new chillwave funk jam from Parisian producer Socoa. It's his fifth track to date and the most refined thus far in his budding discography. Chillwave and chillwave funk have been increasingly popular sub-genres of electronic pop over the past few years, pioneered by acts like Big Wild, Flume, and Tora. More often than not, they embody some pretty progressive jazz and 80s pop structures (see LATP), composed and arranged electronically and it makes for some truly great music.

Anyway, here's Wonderwall.
