Listen: Yalls - 'Settle Down'
The last track we heard from Oakland’s Dan Casey, aka Yalls, was the beautiful 'Sayfixed' which we labelled 'interesto-pop', made our 'Track Of The Day' and subsequently put on out January 2012 playlist.
Today we have the sunshine pop classic of 'Settle Down', which is the opening track from his forthcoming Fantasy 7". Basically we love this dude. He's yet to put a foot wrong in our opinion, and 'Settle Down' might be one of his best tracks so far.
You can pre-order the 7" here.

It might not be as good as 'Video Games' (not much will be this year I'm afraid) but 'Kill Kill' showcases a slightly more laid back performance from Lana Del Rey (Lizzy Grant), especially vocally. Compare it with something like 'Kinda Outta Luck', a bit different right? [read more]
Any track by HEALTH could be our 'Track Of The Day'. It's that simple. Their distorted take on music, whether their own, or in this case a cover, is enough to make us pant with excitement. Their version of 'Goth Star' by Pictureplane is no different. [read more]
