Khruangbin - 'So We Won't Forget'

Although the tone of 'So We Won't Forget' is warm, spaced-out, and peaceful, its lyrics are anything but.  The song's lyrics--and corresponding music video--clearly convey the eternal struggle between terminable mortality and the infinite march of time.  

Ooh, one to remember
Writing it down now
So we won't forget

Ooh, never enough paper
Never enough letters
So we won't forget

The track is composed by Khruangbin, a Texas outfit, whose tracks are inspired by Thai rock and funk.  Their gentle harmonies, interspersed amongst tender, vibey notes, is what gives 'So We Won't Forget' its special juice.

The Zolas - 'Yung Dicaprio'

'Yung Dicaprio' is a BritPop-inspired slapper from Canadian band The Zolas.  Lead singer/guitarist Zachary Gray's vocals are reminiscent of Filter's Richard Patrick during that alternative band's heyday (also during the nineties).  

Overall, the single is jangly and sauntering, brawny and audacious.  It serves as a great pick-me-up for a Saturday evening when the night is still young (or yung?).
