WVUM’s Playlist of the Week

Welcome to the fifth edition of WVUM Radio’s Playlist of the Week, featuring the ten hottest tracks of the past week according to WVUM music directors Jordan Abrams and Peter Melero.

Kero Kero Bonito – “Time Today” from Time ‘n’ Place (Polyvinyl)

Every bubble must pop eventually, and indie’s most saccharine bubblegum group, Kero Kero Bonito, is no exception. The lead single from their highly anticipated sophomore album is a breezy delight about the malaise of having too much time on your hands to do absolutely nothing.

Geotic – “Swiss Bicycle” from Traversa (Ghostly)

A spry piece of electronic goodness that will put a pep in your step and a positive spin on your whole day.

DeMille – “Go!” from Go! (Independent)

New York-based pop quartet DeMille make their full-length debut with smooth vocals and razor-sharp funk riffs.

Kurt Vile – “Rollin With The Flow” from Bottle it In (Matador)

Kurt Vile has been a college and community favorite for years, and that love affair shows no signs of abatement now that his new album, “Bottle It Up,” has been released.

Parcels – “Lightenup” from Parcels (Kitsune/Caroline)

Australia-born, but Berlin-based funk band who has worked with Daft Punk, proves that disco can never die.

Curses – “Gold & Silber (feat. Perel)” from Romantic Fiction (Dischi Autunno)

Eerie synths, sultry vocals, and a thick industrial beat make for an excellent callback to the bohemian scenes in New York and Germany during the early-80s. Equally sexy and spooky, this is perfect music for getting into the Halloween spirit.

Bicicletas Por La Paz – “Tengo Una Bici y la Quiero Montar” from Surfeando Un Cometa (Self-Released)

Bicicletas Por La Paz has a simple but powerful message: cycling can bring about world peace. The lead track from their new album is a positive Latin groove with a tight horn section and a bevy of voices imploring you to get on your bike and feel the joy of riding for the sake of riding.

How to Dress Well – “Body Fat” from The Anteroom (Domino)

In an oversaturated scene of alternative R&B ranging from neo-soul ensembles to crossover hip-hop artists, “How to Dress Well” stands out with his commitment to a bold, electronic R&B sound. His latest song balances the iciness of arty electronics with the warmth of a vulnerable human voice.

Cloud Nothings- “Another Way of Life” from Last Building Burning (Carpark)

Indie-rock band from Ohio puts out head-smashing and chaotic album to follow up as one of the most prominent bands still putting out fresh riffs.
