10. "Oh No :: He Said What?" - Nothing But Thieves

Electro-pop synth UK based band Nothing But Thieves will have you on your feet with this new track from their upcoming Dead Club City Deluxe re-release, out March 15th. The beat, the vibe... it's a mood.

And don't even get us started on those perfectly layered falsetto vocals 😭

What a great way to start off the A List this week! 🕺🕺🕺🕺

9. "Daydream Repeat" - Four Tet

Kieran Hebden, a former member of post-rock band Fringe, has made a name for himself as Four Tet with dreamy landscapes of meditative electronic pop. The England native has been hailed by AllMusic's Paul Simpson as "perhaps the definitive indie electronic artist." We welcome this study friendly track to our Top 10 this week, part of his March 14th full length release, Three.

8. "Jerk Into Joy" - TORRES

To continue the dance-friendly theme of this week's most played tracks is folk electro TORRES' "Jerk Into Joy," which was produced by Sarah Jaffe off of What An Enormous Room.

7. "Burial Ground ft. James Mercer" - The Decemberists

The Decemberists always feels like a warm hug on a winter day. We welcome this track into our Top 10 this week.

6. "Right Behind You" - J Mascis

Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis released his solo album on February 2nd via SubPop Records. This new chart entry fuses drony guitars with the signature Dinosaur Jr. sound. Sunday morning sipping coffee and kitchen cleaning vibes.

5."Life Is" - Jessica Pratt

Pratt is a snapshot memory of Los Angeles nostalgia with Lo-Fi dreamy vibes. We dig it.

4. "Common Blue" - Warpaint

"Maybe, baby, we only have one life to live

Maybe, baby, we can be a butterfly"

One of the great things about Warpaint is their effortless ability to pull off catchy and soothing at the same time.

3. "Neon Pill" - Cage the Elephant

Re-entering our A List this week is this beautifully arranged and mixed groovy track by Cage the Elephant.

2. "Burning Down The House (Talking Heads Cover)" - Paramore

Paramore covering Talking Heads? Are you kidding me?? Part of A24 Music's tribute album for Stop Making Sense called "Everyone's Getting Involved," Paramore has sincerely understood the assignment (read more about the tracklist artist lineup on Hypebeast here)

 Hayley Williams has the vocal ability of a true eternal being. It's a mystery how she does it, but we're glad our ears are reaping in the benefits. (If you want to hear a truly unique Hayley Williams vocal sound bite, skip to 2:49)

1. "When The Laughter Stops" - Yard Act (feat. Katy J Pearson)

Yard Act has been absolutely slaying lately (they just performed their banger "We Make Hits on Jimmy Fallon). Consistently delivering catchy delights, they grab the #1 spot this week on our Top 10 this week with Katy J Pearson.

Same time next week? Thanks for joining us for this A List!
