‘Warm In The Winter’ /// Glass Candy (2011)

A rush of euphoria is not easy to produce. Sustained elevation, as heard here, is harder.

.

.

‘Human Meadow’ /// Falty DL (2009)

“I want your love – forever” repeated across dancefloor in pitch-shifted, ghostly tones = romantic/sinister.

.

.

.

‘Herpes Simplex’ /// Rosa Yemen feat Lizzy Mercier Descloux (1978)

In which guitar itch and delirious yowl fuse in fever dream. Two people, two minutes, total intensity.

.

.

.

‘Ambitious’ /// Wire (1987)

One of many still strong songs from Wire’s relatively neglected mid-period. Features acronym paranoia.

.

.

.

‘My Lovin Is Digi’ /// RZA as Bobby Digital (1998)

This song’s silky bombast is the very definition of ridonkulous (in the best of all possible senses).

.

‘Safari Disco Club / Que Veux-tu’ /// Yelle (2011)

Two songs / one video / all love from my favourite contemporary French pop star.
