“You are flesh and blood!And you deserve to be loved and you deserve what you are given. And oh, how much!”
This mixtape volume starts off with brand new music from Florence + the Machine. “Third Eye” from Florence’s just-released album. How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is quoted above. You can also listen to The Weeknd’s new track, “Can’t Feel My Face,” which the singer premiered for the first time on Monday morning at the Apple developer conference.
The rest of the mixtape consists of heart-pounding jams from Purity Ring, Disclosure, Zhu and Darius, as well as the sexy synth-y sounds of Autoerotique, AZEKEL, Baathhaus (who first blew me away at Austin’s Stargayzer fest). Plus, Adam Lambert’s newest song (hear me out!) is surprisingly cool — “Ghost Town” is perfect for getting ready before a night out.
Still not in the mood? Miguel’s new song, “Coffee” is a euphemism for getting it on and trust me, the rest of the song is not nearly as ambiguous about what he’s referring to. In the sexy-pop department, we also have “Dance Like We’re Making Love” by the always-reliable Ciara. Put on your headphones, sit back and give it a spin.
