DMV: We Used to the Waiting

Galcher Lustwerk’s “Put On.” The crisp claps, fuzzy chords and subdued rapping work in perfect harmony here. And while lyrics like “everybody doin’ thangs they only did alone” may hint at sinister behavior found in the dark corners of dance clubs, it also celebrates the liberation that comes with sharing your secrets. 


Nicholas Murphy chose his moniker to honor Chet Baker, the American jazz musician known both as a trumpeter and a fragile, intimate singer. The Australian electronic musician, producer and rising soul singer — a.k.a. Chet Faker — has teamed up with his countryman Flume, the 22-year-old electronic producer. Together, they’re releasing this fabulous track, “Drop the Game.” This isn’t their first collaboration: Flume and Chet Faker worked on Flume’s self-titled record, and that record is up for an Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) award.
