Benji Hughes lives in North Carolina but spends a lot of time in Los Angeles. For many years I've enjoyed his music but for one reason or another, I haven't been able to share it with our audience. He's finally released an EP, A Little Extreme, as a preview of what's to come. Today's top tune is the song "How Many Birds."

Chromatics: Black Walls Chromatics started out as a noise-laden outfit founded by Adam Miller in 2001 in Seattle. Eventually Miller forged a new path into an electronic sound and a full band line up. Chromatics don't release an abundant amount of music so when we get our hands on new work, we love to share. Take away "Black Walls" today!
Bahamas: Live On MBE - No Wrong Today, we launch a new Friday feature on Today's Top Tune. Each week we'll share an exclusive version of a song from a recently recorded Morning Becomes Eclectic session featuring some of our favorite artists. The artists will shed a little insight into the song with an introduction, alongside a free download. We launch with singer songwriter Afie Jurvanen best known as Bahamas, as he tells us about "No Wrong."
Kodacrome: Slender Elissa LeCoque and Ryan Casey make up Kodacrome, infusing fragmented pop with a warm electronic pulse. Elissa plays piano, seeding most of the melodies and progressions, while Ryan re-imagines the work in his laboratory of analog equipment. "Slender" recalls the slinky sound of artists like Portishead or Blonde Redhead.
