Each month Allison Baughman brings you a roundup of some of her favorite new songs, and they're guaranteed to keep your music game on point.

Calvin Harris - How Deep is Your Love

You’re not too good for Calvin Harris, when HE’S being good. Don’t know what got into him, but he’s tapping back into his deep house roots, which is to the utmost delight of everyone who used to be a fan of him. Not only is this song the sexiest, but it’s featuring Disciples. If you don’t know Disciples, and like Azari & III, I suggest you do a little google search and get with it.

Kero Kero Bonito - Chicken

We needed something in our lives that was similar to Lily Allen, but just a little bit weirder. And here we go, introducing Kero Kero Bonito, your new favorite bizarro pop star.

Sigur Ros - Lila

You get two for the price of one today, and that’s fine by us (we’re sure you’re on your knees thanking the gods of music) for Sigur Ros is back with a mini-soundtrack they’ve done forCirce. I suppose it doesn’t really matter WHAT it is they’re making music for, it always seems to evoke strange emotions the produce tears.

Chvrches - Leave a Trace (Four Tet Remix)

https://soundcloud.com/chvrches/chvrches-leave-a-trace-four-tet-remix-1

I don’t think there needs to be too much of an introduction here; Four Tet has a new remix. And of all people, it’s of the darlings CHVRCHES. And on top of that information alone, it rules.

Alessia Cara - Four Pink Walls

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_1QRgeZbiY

Our young prodigy is back, and she’s still absolutely killing the singing-songwriting game. Profound lyrics, killer beats and vocals that will have you practicing your heart out every time you enter that shower.

 

Carly Rae Jepsen - Run Away With Me

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeccAtqd5K8

Don’t act like you don’t have a heart and a soul, Carly Rae Jepsen is thee ultimate pop star of our age.

Carly Rae Jepsen - Warm Blood

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBPw0l26L58

We’re going to go ahead and just force her down your throat because you are a liar and a thief if you’ve listened to both of these songs and didn’t feel anything.

World Champion - Avocado Galaxy

https://soundcloud.com/futureclassic/world-champion-avocado-galaxy

Forever trusting in all things released by Future Classic; and this track is no different. We don’t know much about World Champion, but if the vibes are like this, we are very, very down.

Four Tet - Digital Arpeggios

He must just be on a role. Four Tet will forever remain our hero.

Tunde Olarniran - KYBM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q-8304BYm8

(Keep Your Body Moving) and moving and moving, because this song is thee dance song of the end of the summer. Vocals like whoa and a beat that runs through your body and causes every particle of your body to move.
