IN THE DAYLIGHT ANYWHERE FEELS LIKE HOME.

I'm not generally one to feature music I'm not at liberty to make available for direct download, but when a song this good comes along it demands and deserves attention by any means possible. But yo, Matt & Kim, what's the deal? That debut album had a few solid jams and promised of good things to come, but where the fuck did these come from? First RCRDLBL brought us "Good Ol' Fashion Nightmare", the triumphant lead single off the duo's upcoming sophomore effort Grand, and to put it succinctly, it fucking ruled. "Daylight" followed a month later courtesy of Mountain Dew's digital imprint Green Label Sound, and has been blowing out the speakers at Neon Gold HQ ever since. Plinking keys hook you from the start, before a monumental drumbeat drops in and the song takes flight on a catchy-as-fuck vocal structure and oscillating synths. If this isn't one of the year's best singles, we don't know what is. Follow the link below to cop it for yourself, you won't regret it.

art is from a photograph I'd found and saved to my computer ages ago - I tried to track down the name of the photographer so as to provide a photo credit, but to no avail.
