Name that song! Instrumental. Very recent. Overheard on the radio and in stores/restaurants where they typically play indie/alt rock. Bouncy. Very strong bassline. Kinda reminds me of Air.

I think the song is pretty new, because I've only started hearing it the last couple weeks. The bassline is the most notable part of the song, and pretty much drives it.

I think there's a part near the end where the bassline fades a bit and the song kinda chills out, and then the bassline comes back with full force. (although it's possible I'm confusing it with a different song)

Any ideas?

Bouncy, new, not instrumental (but nearly). Maybe Midnight City by M83?

Not an answer to your question, but in situations like this, I find smartphone apps like Shazam and SoundHound indispensable.

Random guess - Viva Voce?

Response by poster: I should mention that this song sounded like some form of electronica. I doubt there was a live drum set involved.

Possibly Toro y Moi?

Best answer: Okay, pretty sure this is the song, Rawnald Gregory Erickson The Second, by Starfucker.

Love that bassline!
