This week we have the highly anticipated “Girl” topping our chart. The xx producer/percussionist released his fourth solo single earlier this week, and it’s thumping bass and reverb vocal makes dancing to this track almost irresistible. Also on our chart is another cut off of Mac DeMarco’s Salad Days, as well as tUnE-yArDs’ “Water Fountain” which received an extremely psychedelic music video this week (check it out here). And more important than all of that, check back every week for our updated Top 20!

Now, WLOY usually isn’t in the business of beating dead horses (we consider ourselves humanitarians if anything). But we must again remind you that our last event of the year is coming up this Thursday and it’s gunna be HUGE. Like really big. Like the buzz is that Kanye is going to be there. He heard about the prizes, including the gift certificates to a plethora of awesome local dives and eateries, and he couldn’t resist. Apparently Kanye has a soft spot for pink flamingos and bread pudding. Now if celebrity proximity and food doesn’t entice you, at least come and support your friends while they expose their most sacred vulnerabilities to the critical eye of the spectator. Join us in McGuire at 8:30.
