Jump into the Fire
by Harry Nilsson
(52 plays) | (0 fans)

Nilsson is something of an enigma in the history of American rock: one of the few successful acts to never really tour, he was a studio savant who pioneered techniques in overdubbing that are now considered standard. However, don't let his technical wizardry distract from his huge vocal range and deft songwriting, earning him spots on Rolling Stone's Greatest Songwriters of All Time list even in 2015.

Punk band The Cramps' career lasted a whopping 30 years until the unfortunate passing of lead singer Lux Interior - but their impact is undeniable. As one of the first punk bands to reach wide recognition, they're particularly credited with pioneering Psychobilly.

My Time
by Acapulco Lips
(6 plays) | (0 fans)

With particularly strong surf rock influences that sound like they're right off the set of Pulp Fiction, the Seattle trio taps into a particularly Californian garage rock, with the rolling waves of drums and 60's fuzz that bring it back to a pastel past.

In and Out Of Sight
by The Horrors
(23 plays) | (0 fans)

"In and Out of Sight" is one of the dancier cuts from The Horror's fourth album, where the German prog influences and - as Don Yates put it - "Oceanic guitars" come to the fore.

Love Stained
by TV on the Radio
(40 plays) | (0 fans)

From TV's fifth album, "Love Stained" is an excellent example of the more direct, New-Wave-oriented take on the band's previous funk, prog sound that they've begun to take over their career.

Untitled #3
by Kendrick Lamar
(8 plays) | (1 fan)

K-Dot released a surprise album of cuts from the To Pimp A Butterfly sessions that never made the final mix, only further cementing the Compton MC's position as perhaps the most artful rapper in the game, certainly at this tier of mainstream success. With jazz, spoken word, and Afro influences, Lamar continues to push the boundaries of what a rap record could - and should - be.

It All Feels Right
by Washed out
(108 plays) | (0 fans)

Paracosm was an interesting growth for Georgia's Ernest Greene (the mind behind Washed Out): featuring a much deeper arrangement style with a wide variety of instrumentation like sitars and marimbas, Greene played up the hazy, lazy, psychedelic electro-pop of his first album.

The Garden
by Cut Chemist
(88 plays) | (1 fan)

The 4th track off of Cut Chemist's first full, proper studio album, which took 18 months of monastic focus and work after his departure from Jurassic 5.
