The essential tunes in the OTR office this week. Please feel free to add your own selections below.

Jape “Ocean of Frequency” (Music Is For Losers)

The post-“Ritual” affair from Richie Egan is brimming with deadly tropical pop, sunset grooves and infectious tunes.

Django Django “Waveforms” (Because)

Forthcoming single from the London-based Irish/Scottish group sees them moving into new, exciting tribal-pop terrain.

Santogold “Santogold” (Atlantic)

Revisisting one of the big hits of last weekend’s Electric Picnic before she changed her name to Santigold. New album can’t come too soon.

Blawan “What You Do With What You Have” (R&S)
