Our new catchall pop culture series (Stuff We Like) is here! We’ll be sharing all our favorite everythings with you for your edification and enjoyment. Sounds like a good time, right?

This week, we’re not sure how, but we managed to hit the new-music-motherload when we stumbled upon the following tracks. Needless to say, we’ve had the windows down and these tuned cranked ALL the way up, day and night.

The Strokes Comedown Machine:

If the video below does anything for you, then you’re going to love this. The Strokes are back, eschewing their garage band background for a groovy synthed homage to the ’80s.

Beach House Wishes:

Did somebody spike the Gatorade? Eric Wareheim (of Tim & Eric’s Awesome Show, Great Job!) flexes his directorial muscle in Beach House’s new psychedelic video featuring an otherworldly Ray Wise giving Beyoncé a run for her money for best halftime show of 2013.

Vampire Weekend Step:

The princes of prep’s new video makes us want to slap on some Nantucket Reds and sip a pisco sour on the deck of a schooner.
