HIP TIPS: COOL NEW-ISH SONGS

School of Seven Bells’ “Half Asleep”: Pretty brunette twins, Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, sing a pretty, synth-y song in their own pretty way.

Maps’ “You Don’t Know Her Name”: A tall female android is constructed in a garage as this harrowing yet wispy synth number from Maps spins.

James’ “Whiteboy”: best version I could find online. Audio isn’t bad, relatively speaking, though arguably the song’s unique aspect –– the wiggling trumpet during the chorus –– is a little muddy. Listen closely. James are insane. (“Are” ’cause they’re a band, not just some dude named James.) And great.
