Last Week's Distilled Gems

Great singles last week from those you’d expect it from with Toro Y Moi, Warpaint and Lapsley leading the way. Creative Source by Braxe & Falcon brought me back to those lat 90’s/early 00’s Daft Punk/Basement Jaxx shows (which is *always* a good thing). Parquet Courts surprised me a bit (in a good way) with their Talking Heads-ish grooves. Singer/Songwriters also had a strong showing with Ryan Adams and Sondre Lerche putting out great albums, and Anand Wilder and Alabaster DePlume wowing me.
