Free Music: Tunes from Identical Twin Sisters and a Strange B-List Supergroup

Nina Sky: “Day Dreaming”
They’re Puerto Rican identical sisters from Queens, and they make slinky electro-infused R&B. What else do you need to entice you? [The Fader]

Apparatjik ft. Pharrell: “Do It Myself”
You would think a group that already includes members of Coldplay (no, not Chris Martin), Mew and A-ha wouldn’t need any help, but apparently Pharrell couldn’t resist joining this oddball musical summit. [Stereogum

Nite Jewel: “Visions”
Even though it’s a fairly straightforward cover of the Stevie Wonder classic, something about her music-made-in-my-bedroom approach gives this a haunting honesty. [Prefix]

Rhye: “Open”
I have no idea what “I’m a fool for your belly” means, but I like the sound of this gentle, breathy baroque pop tune, so I don't care. [The Fader]

The Hairs: “I’ve Been Working Out”
Lo-fi jangle pop that Michael Cera and Ellen Page would probably enjoy singing along to. [Stereogum]
