We all get something different out of the music we consume. Some listen for entertainment, while others put on a record for emotional and mental stimulation. There are even those strange few who don’t actively listen to music at all. It’s fascinating and complex the way a song can affect our brains, the number of endorphins triggered, which is then translated into what we call “personal taste.” This week’s countdown traverses the musical spectrum of colors and tonalities, from the pitch blacks of Triptykon, to the bright jangles of The War on Drugs and William Tyler. Each is an exemplary representation of its respective genre — a true collage when culled into a list of 10. We can’t guarantee that you’ll like every song, but we do know that you will feel something when you listen to them.

10. Sleep Party People – “In Another Wrld”

Sleep Party People

At first glance, Sleep Party People seems like a cookie-cutter EDM act. Not to mention, the “electronica” tag on their BandCamp page doesn’t help their case. The opening seconds of “In Another World” prove otherwise, wearing a dark, experimental complexion. Its whispered acoustic guitar weaves beautifully amongst its drums, psychedelic feedback, and screeching string arrangements, making it seem fitting for a haunted house. Brian Batz, the man behind the project, only adds to that effect with his falsettoed fairy tale lyrics, forming a reoccurring nightmare that’s hard to shake. Batz will narrate more haunting tales on his upcoming LP, Floating, due June 2nd via Blood and Biscuits. --Sam Willett

Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

Hey! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work? I’m completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

Appreciating the persistence you put into your blog and in depth information you offer. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks a lot

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.

Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to make a superb article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
