Sunday Morning Medicine Vol. 170, featuring Bob Moses, Kasbo, Hot Chip, and moreSMM 2400

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut’s Bella Bagshaw, dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. She brings you her favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the often agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.

Bob Moses has that rare amorphous sound that makes listeners want to dance, cry, and wonder all at once—which is oddly perfect for Sunday morning restlessness. “Enough To Believe” will surely offer its consumers bouts of all three.

Beach House singer, Victoria Legrand may be a jack of almost all trades, but she’s certainly a master of one: dispelling end-of-weekend woes with her dream-pop croons.

One of the earliest San Holo-sponsored bitbird offerings, Kasbo‘s “Found You” is a like a one-way flight to the sonic heavens—expedited.

Taken straight from Hot Chip‘s latest LP of the same name, “A Bath Full of Ecstasy” is an indie dance track in the iridescent, off-kilter vein Hot Chip has remained renowned for throughout their tenure in the studio. The track’s whimsical guitar strums and quixotic vocals catapult a sea of swimming colors through the listener’s unsuspecting psyche: a paragon hangover cure, if one ever existed.

ALT:Vision’s Laxcity is all too adept in the art of chill-out. Taken straight from his brand new EP, “Refined” is the nuanced, sonic equivalent of letting your hair down and getting lost inside some sunny Sunday musings.

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. Senior Editor Bella Bagshaw brings you her favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—each week, in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


Let’s begin at the end this Sunday, with the concluding offering, “Spring,” from Flume’s latest mixtape. With help from the eternally strange, Eprom, Flume uses pitched-up vocals and a frenetic, downtempo arrangement, for a resplendent, redolent Sunday soundtrack.

Slow Magic’s take on Manila Killa’s “Wake Up Call” is an echoing, pensive vessel for some Sunday eschewal. Where Manila Killa’s initial offering showcases a sobering groove, Slow Magic’s is one of escapism: a palliative proposition to drift inside a soft blue dream.

Moods takes an already blissed-out Catching Flies cut, “Sunrays” and adds a lulling, looping beat, liable to send listeners into some sunny, sound-induced catharsis.

From RÜFÜS DU SOL’s enduring, sophomore album comes “Brighter,” a song privy to absolving any residual end-of-weekend regrets. Though, nearly any selection from RÜFÜS’s expansive catalog carries some semblance of sunshine.

Now let’s end at the beginning: Flume’s quixotic and vapory “Zimbabwe” rework lives on his first and self-titled album. To spend a Sunday inside Flume’s artistic evolution would surely stave off intrusive work-related thoughts; so, that’s just what Dancing Astronaut is prescribing this week.

Vaski’s airy offering, “Weightless” is a revolving staircase of vocal chops and lush, plucky loops: the ideal music to go in circles to this Sunday.

From their often-overlooked album of the same title, “Congratulations” is MGMT at peak psychedelia and introspection-friendly: just what the audio doctors ordered after a long weekend of dubitable behavior.

Arriving at the top of his brand new EP, “Horizons” allows Super Duper to see our Sunday in the right direction, with the help of some bubbly sampling, subtle strings, and a touch of saxophone synth.

Broody and cinematic, “Cherry” is Chromatics’ surreal Sunday spoonful of escapism.

Washed Out’s meandering soundscapes of “Great Escape” lead us through corridors of swirling color kaleidoscopes and idealistic instrumentals; away from the pervasive whispers of Monday.

Like a lucid dream, Robotaki‘s latest, “Meant To Be,” swirls and struts through the consciousness with its Tame Impala/Daft Punk-esque psychedelia/synth-wave. Start your Sunday on the right side of Robotaki’s ultraviolet fantasy.

Lane 8 introduces some pensive splendor to Virtual Self‘s sweeping smash, “Ghost Voices,” and the result is a rousing, subtly danceable sonic sonnet.

RAC lends furrowing keys and blooming builds to an already-idyllic Giraffage offering. “Maybes” stands for sweet, swimming possibility this Sunday.

From his latest EP, Vincent‘s “I’m No Magician” is the sensual savor we all crave for end-of-weekend dopamine replenishment. Love, Alexa’s pulsing vocal chops and Vincent’s throbbing bass hit like a beckoning Sunday strobe light.

Arriving from Lee Burridge‘s All Day I Dream imprint, Sébastien Léger’s “Rocket To Lee’s Little Cloud” is the quixotic vessel you ordered to deliver from intrusive thoughts of the upcoming work week. With its chugging beat wistful, reverberating synth line, swift escape is imminent.

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


Dreamy and unflinchingly inventive, “Famous” arrives just ahead of Manatee Commune’s forthcoming album, PDA.

Let Tycho shoot you through his swimming sea of technicolor synth wave, by way of the perfectly portioned dose of “L.”

NVDES graces Sunday Morning Medicine this week to remind us even trap can be tender, with the looping, hip-hop-inspired “Where Is Your Mind?” Good question, NVDES.

Compelling, tragic, delectably lulling, Cubicolor’s “Mirror Play,” resonates with the anxiety-prone, dispelling worry with its encircling strings and redemptive vocals.

Cashmere Cat caps the list off with his eternally playful, “Mirror Maru.” As strange as it is melodic, the track is the sweet silliness DA prescribes for alcohol-induced fatigue.

Essex’s Lapalux is nothing if not avant-garde. His rousing, off-kilter melodies from “IAMSYS” are an idyllic dose of swirling strange to get your brain in gear, even if your body is a bit more reluctant.

From Gorillaz‘s most recent album, The Now Now, “Magic City,” paints a decadent portrait of what could be this Sunday. Find some wistful comfort in knowing Damon Albarn, too, is “questioning it all.”

Pristine and plaintive, Moby‘s Porcelain is the sonic reconciliation you never knew you needed.  Languorous keys and reverberating strings will restore your likely fragile insides to their natural state.

With its languid, downtempo allure, “All I Can Do,” emulates the moody, retro synth struts of Tame Impala, alongside his own nuanced brand of smoky surrealism. A soundtrack to disintegrate.

The most compelling offering from Icarus‘s technicolor house EP, This Must Be The Place, “Running Away” breathes truth to its eponymously named escapism. Let the track wipe your worries clean with its wandering synth line and prophetic lyricism.

If Disclosure can successfully introduce a house beat to the lyrics of “Fools Rush In,” you can thwart the end-of-weekend demons. “Where Angels Fear To Tread,” off the duo’s forthcoming project, offers a litany of lush strings, jazz acapella vocal samples, and a highly medicinal bass line.

Head to British songstress Litany’s ’80s-inspired “Bedroom” for a full-bodied breath of electronic-pop therapy. Her wistful vocals float over softly jubilant production infused with an island effect, complements of the track’s wavering marimba synth.

Lane 8‘s latest and first of 2019, “Visions” is just as it sounds. “Visions” is benevolently scheduled under DA’s “highly potent hallucinogens,” with its deliberate, rousing beat and a fluttering, euphoria-procuring synth line, like fractals dancing in the night.

Like so many of Bonobo‘s creations, “Second Sun” exudes a subtle, twinkling majesty. Its melancholy-hopeful instrumentals set the tone for the week ahead.

Louis Futon‘s most recent offering leading up to his new album, “Supposed To Be” caps this week’s Sunday Morning Medicine on a soothing note. DUCKWRTH and BAEGOD’s feel-good rhymes remind listeners of better weather and easy living.

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.

The 1975’s broody synth-pop ballad, “Somebody Else” uncorks this week’s Sunday sonic tonic. Lay back as the track funnels forgotten feelings of bygone lovers through its musing ’80s synth line alongside Matty Healy’s deceivingly disenchanted crooning.

Through the frigid throes of winter, RÜFÜS DU SOL’s “Innerbloom” remains a grudge-thawing winter remedy, with its warm, furrowing progressions and fluid percussion, that rushes over the listener like long-sought-after weekend penance.

It’s too easy to get lost inside Sound Tribe’s fluttering instrumentals and glitchy, hip-hop beat. The cosmically funky track’s wistful piano and swirling strings are enough to dissolve any and all dizzying Sunday disarray.

“Your Hand In Mine” gives listeners the feeling that their love can quite literally move mountains. Explosions In The Sky’s momentous orchestral crescendos and soaring guitar strums help listeners hark the track’s respective album title: The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place, which, this Sunday, it might feel like.

Diplo’s multitalented triad of talent, LSD (Labrinth, Sia, Diplo) queue up their mellifluous wedding of pop and dance music with “Audio,” to close out the list this week. A redemptive track to its core, “Audio” is your sonic segue to conquering whatever’s on the Sunday agenda.

Mat Zo is turning the key on our Sunday Morning Medicine ignition this week, with his funky, idealistic remix of a vintage Porter Robinson track, “Flicker.” Zo’s rendition, which Robinson himself dubbed one of the best remixes he’d ever heard in his life, is full of wispy percussion and swirling melodies, erecting a city of celestial sound perfect for playing hide and go seek with responsibility.

Remixing an artist as colorful and inventive as Tycho is no small undertaking. But Anjunadeep‘s Luttrell (formerly one half of The M Machine) recently struck some sonic gold with his brand new “Epoch” re-envision, lending the track one of his signature chugging beats and preserving Tycho’s reverberating synth strums. Have a dance—or maybe just an extended sit—under Luttrell’s gleaming “Epoch”-al sky.

Here we have ZHU‘s ode to every painfully cool girl with a bad habit from a club locale nearest you. She lives lavishly inside the track’s cultivated wobble and sensuous, breathy vocals.

Manatee Commune’s newest, “My Dearest Friend” is a well-warranted spoonful of quixotic chaos. Instrumental, optimistic, and bouncy in all the right places, “My Dearest Friend” is here to eviscerate the residual alcohol-induced ringing in your ears.

Nothing lasts “Forever.” But tomorrow never comes for just over three minutes as Majid Jordan pulses through your speakers. You might just levitate as the duo’s illusory vocals and R&B tenderness breathe life into your tired weekend brain.

Alina Baraz enlists the help of Danish producer, Galimatias, for “Unfold,” from her Urban Flora album. Dripping in sensuous escapism, this track aids in actualizing those halfhearted midday musings of whomever the heart sings out for.

Lucian‘s “Trndsttr” remix, with its swelling reverb and strutting breakbeat, will instill confidence in listeners this Sunday morning in places perhaps its been previously exhausted from extended weekend vexation.

From his brand new EP, Be On Fire, comes Chrome Sparks‘s cosmic “Ultraviolet Rainbow,” soaring into the depths of our subconscious with every analog arpeggio.

“Maker,” off Big Wild‘s brand new City of Sound project, is indie electronica dipped in nostalgia and laced with ’80s undertones. Its subtle riffs and winding, perrenial lead synth, blossoming, only to disappear once again, are a whimsical means of Sunday idealism and thoughts of “if only…”

MELVV’s twinkling, childlike production quirks serve as potent subterfuge, shrouding “Not Me”‘s poignant center. We’re leaving the track here, in the case any listeners are in need of a dose of Sunday refuge.
