This week Lydmore & Bon Homme, an unusual pairing of two top Nordic artists, top off our Top Plays list. Yes, we are addicted to the melancholic but catchy tunes, “Trampoline” and “Dream of Fire.” The duo are currently on-tour in Germany.
Also this week, Tycho places at #2. Awake Remixes makes available a bunch of new reworks from one of last year’s favorite albums here at KRKQ.
