'Animal' and 'Black and Blue'
 

I don't know what it is with this year, but dance pop has controlled my speakers for one reason or another. This is the second best album of this sort you can check out this year. (keep reading to find out #1...but if you know me you've probably already heard me freak out about it) Miike Snow is so damn good, so damn catchy, you'll be pissed if you check it out cause it'll be stuck in your head. But you'll also be pissed if you don't. The two main members of Miike Snow were formerly writers and producers of pop hit (?) songs for the likes of Britney Spears. They decided to team up and create their own album and what we are bestowed with is this wonderful self-titled album from Miike Snow. I don't dance much, I don't dance well, but I will work up a mother fucking sweat dancing like a fool to these tracks. Up tempo, down tempo, whatever, get a couple drinks in you and put these songs on and have a good time. 'I change shapes just to hide in this place but I'm still an animal.' I think we can all relate. Especially when its backed up by a killer drum, bass, and synth line. Fuck! It's good. Try not to shake your ass or bob your head to 'Plastic Jungle' that has one of the coolest arpeggiated synth lines I've ever heard and some of the thickest bass. It's truly club music brought to you by some of the best producers of modern popular music (for better or worse). But it works here. These are some of the best groove songs you can listen to. It's chill enough to put on as background music or while you're driving but it really, really shines when you crank the speakers UP. Play these songs drunk or play them at a party and see what happens. No one will know what the hell is going on but it is 100% guaranteed to be a good time.
