Love this rhythmic beat groove courtesy of producer Clap! Clap! and, as always, Paul Simon’s lyrical storytelling that somehow perfectly illustrates a universally relatable experience while instantly beaming you straight to the streets of New York City.

 

With its inventive percussive propulsion and NYC-centric lyrics, “Wristband” is just asking to be covered, reworked, and remixed by James Murphy. Can we make this happen?

 

Track of the day.
