There is a special place in my heart and a circle of Hell* specifically reserved for people who write pop tunes in 7/4. Trippy Dutch quasi-psychadelic goodness.
The whole album is worth a listen, although I wouldn't let Jane's Addictions lawyers hear "Near The Water"...
*These may actually be the same place.

"PYNK (feat. Grimes)" - Janelle Monáe
You know what? A world without Prince is (just about) bearable when it contains Janelle Monáe, and unlike the recent "Make Me Feel" this is pure scratchy catchy electropop goodness courtesy of Grimes.
"Polygraph Eyes" - YUNGBLUD
Not everyone can write a catchy pop song about shitty male behaviour.
"Honesty (Feat. Felp)" - Zerolex
I mean, there's out.... and there's OUT. Title track from Zerolex's new EP is the unashamedly, gorgeously the latter.
"Holding Out" - Adrian Underhill
This tune lives in the Dirty Projectors/Merz intersection, which is rarified space.
"Colours After Midnight" - B.Visible
Rhodes meets arps, bit of scratchy electronic percussion? Don't mind if I do.
"Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays" - Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Mo' lurid innervision-esque nostaligic pop existentialism, mo' money? Amirite?
"Wayside" - Renata Zeiguer
I adore the way this song evolves - it's deceptively simple, yet full of left turns.
