Pop Picks: 10/3

A new school year, a new batch of hot pop hits. Check out what we just added to the vault written by new members of pop workgroup!

How to Dress Well – Total Loss

IF YOU HAVE EVER HAD FEELINGS THIS ALBUM IS FOR YOU. A spacey, dark take on R&B with a lots of haunting falsetto. End-track “Ocean Floor For Everything” will probably kill you, just a little bit. – Fiz

Woods – Bend Beyond

If you like woodsy, synth pitched music this is for you.  Not totally on the synthpop side and still grounded in indie alternative woodsy music.  Tracks are a great blend of the two distinct styles. – Harlee

David Byrne and St. Vincent – Love this Giant

Anything that St. Vincent works on (besides that one Andrew Bird song…) is pure bliss. St. Vincent minus the guitar, plus major brass and Talking Heads’ genius member gives me chills. So good. – Rachel
