Miss TK & the Revenge could be compared to a more listenable M.I.A., a sexier Santogold, or a softer Siouxie Sioux. Inspired by legwarmers, the Muppets, and other neon-hued 80s memes, Miss TK and the Revenge put out tracks that always seem retro but never dated. Their new album, The Ocean Likes to Party Too, is a solid dance-punk gem without a single throwaway track. The vibe is somewhere between an 80s new wave club and a Clueless-era skate bash, making Miss TK & the Revenge a definite must at your next party.

Oh, and if you actually purchase the album, a portion of the proceeds go to help out the Gulf Coast. Rad and rad.
One of the most fitting nicknames I have ever received is Stressbunny. Teen angst has plagued me well past my 20th birthday, as have a whole host of neuroses, anxieties, and paranoias. While all that twitchiness is great for the metabolism, it’s hell on the brain. And nothing perks me up when I’m stressballin’ than a few choice tracks! Here’s some favorites that multitask as fabulous moving jams (helloooo end of summer).

Cards to Your Heart by Groove Armada. slick juicy electro pop. They’re called Groove Armada, it ain’t gonna be groundbreaking acoustic artistry.

Tell Me Why by M.I.A. get that blood pumpin and pat yourself on the back for knowing one of her newest tracks that ain’t the ginger-bombing Born Free.
