Top 10 Songs of the Week (6/24)

Here are the new tracks that we've had on repeat all week long

    As if he somehow could transcendentally meditate his way into our innermost dreams, David Lynch announced this week that he’ll be organizing his very own festival. Pretty rad! A few of us have already lined up for tickets. The musicians announced for the Festival of Disruption include some amazing performers (seriously, Angelo Badalamenti? Seriously?), but that doesn’t mean we won’t be constantly on the lookout for other artists that would fit into Lynch’s world. While that’s not the case with all of the artists on this list, they all have their own dramatic, theatrical, or epic quality, so read on and think of it as our own little festival of the mind.

    10. 2ToneDisco feat. Ducky – “Tummy Treasures”

    2tonedisco Top 10 Songs of the Week (6/24)

    Burgers, doughnuts, popcorn, dim sum, and sushi are just a few of the global “Tummy Treasures” celebrated on 2ToneDisco’s quirky, new synth-laden offering. Comprised of Los Angelinos Omni Rutledge and James Campbell, the duo’s production palette has much in common with the UK’s divisive PC Music collective. As showcased around the 1:55 mark of the Ducky-featuring single, 2ToneDisco amplify the groove with some keytar-influenced riffage. It’s light, infectious, easy-going, and goes well with any drink accompanied with an umbrella — just like the best of a summer day. Better yet, it’s available now as a free download. —Derek Staples

    09. Ian William Craig – “A Single Hope”

    Given Ian William Craig’s cathartic and tense Bandcamp recordings, it comes as a surprise that he’s not a movie score producer. Set to release his upcoming album, Centres, via 13071, Craig has released the first single, “A Single Hope”. Sticking to his moody modus operandi, the song features a sweeping montage of feathery and longing falsettos that segue with tension between languid and vast soundscapes with the songwriter’s haunting vocals. Even when absent of strings or symphonies, it’s reminiscent of a momentous opera suite with a lament but brooding drone that expands, leaving Craig gasping up for air. —Alejandra Ramirez
