But it’s not just the girls who wanna have fun. This volume also proves that boys can be sirens, too, as demonstrated flawlessly by Hercules & Love Affair and Helado Negro (lyrics featured at the top of this post).
Hipster-approved hip-hop from Run the Jewels, Tinie Tempah, A$AP Rocky and Oddisee and the intoxicating manic musings of John Talabot and The Black Madonna. Plus, Spoon makes a worthy comeback.
