- Flying Lotus - All In
- Paul & Linda McCartney - Ram On
- Tropics - Ophelia
- Here We Go Magic - Miracle of Mary
- Beach House - Tokyo Witch
- Heather Woods Broderick - Cottonwood Bay
- Heathered Pearls - Beach Shelter
- Camera Obscura - Country Mile
- Pascal Pinon - Bloom
- Owen Pallett - Red Sun No. 5
- Grizzly Bear - Deep Blue Sea (Daniel Rossen Home Recording)
