Dreamy disco is an underutilized concept, but Renny Wilson seems to get it. On "By And By," it's not about crushing clubs (or beers, for that matter), no, it's flightiness. Fitting nicely alongside contemporaries we've been loving like Poolside, Wilson takes the language of dance music and uses it for poppy excursions that feel supremely relaxed. His new album, the appropriately-titled Sugarglider, is out January 22 via Mint Records.
Eli Escobar is the reason we love dance music. His output is always on a positive tip – nothing too serious, everything totally fun. “Work It” is a slippery alloy of orgasmic moans, housey keys and big bad bass. It screams, “Everybody, let’s hump this floor!” And the video, starring shaky clips of Madonna, Parker Posey, Eddie Murphy and flailing, strobe-lit kids from the ‘80s and ‘90s, is a play-by-play on how to do just that. Dither Down’s got the release right now, and if you are a good time (or want to have one), you will get it.
