Yesterday was Philadelphia's annual Equality Forum Festival in Northern Liberties. I didn't go because I was too busy playing with my cats. Just kidding. I didn't go because work is so crazy this time of year -- I'm in the transportation industry and was stuck inside all day taking U-Haul orders. Sorry, I know that's not funny because you're lame. For real, I didn't go to Equality because I didn't feel like coming out of my closet. I lost track of time trying on new flannel vests as I listened to this amazing playlist.
Nika Roza Danilova, the lead singer of Zola Jesus, has a voice that's like wine drenched in sex. Her soulful vocals will haunt you, staying trapped in your head like a ghost caught between two worlds. But unlike the ghost of girlfriends past, she's a spirit you'll want to keep around.

How do sexy lady voices make you feel? If anything like this gritty trip-hop track, you'll feel like you want to listen over and over again. And after that, over some more.
Self-control? Who wants that? Not me, unless we're talking about this song. The only thing is, I'm not sure which is more delicious. Sunday Girl's original slow-burner, (which can be downloaded for free here), or Young Empires' spice-filled remix.
Warning! Only put on this track if you want to be melodically seduced. If luscious beats and trance vocals are your thing, you can't go wrong with Kaskade's house group Late Night Alumni.
What is it that makes girls who act distant so appealing? Is it that you can't have them? Or is it that when you do have them, you're reminded of what you're missing out on? Personally, I think it's that we're so different yet so fun, kind of like this song.
