Jon Hopkins and Purity Ring are complementary due to their similar style, which is distinguished by a specifically melancholy emotional texture. He usually doesn’t include vocals in his work, but they’re a natural fit in this track, which appeared as an instrumental on Immunity. Maybe this will tide me over until the Purity Ring album comes out. —Cinder

Recommendation: Throw a party at which one of the main features is an oxygen bar. Once everyone is feeling lightheaded, play this track to make them feel even weirder.

Goodbye Horses - Hayden Thorpe & Jon Hopkins

The year may be new, but NDT is kicking it off with an old song… kinda. The 1988 Q Lazzarus classic ‘Goodbye Horses’ received a 2013 paring down and prettying up courtesy of English electro virtuoso Jon Hopkins and his countryman, Wild Beasts lead singer Hayden Thorpe. It’s a beautiful cover, sparse and almost desperately sad - perfect for that weep into your cup of coffee on your first day back in the office. Goodbye horses… and holidays.
