How to Dress Well explores emotions amid explosions for Connect Sessions

Music and visual art have always been deeply intertwined, and on Wednesday three pairings of artists and musicians explored what that relationship means in the electronic age. As part of their Connect Sessions series of collaborations, Microsoft and Spin presented performances by three musical acts with custom video projections.

The night began with a solo performance by Ian Williams of proggy art-rock scene stalwarts Battles, whose twitchy synthesizer psychedelia was paired with a hyperkinetic video piece by Ron Amstutz that used stop-action animation of a dancer assuming contortionist-like positions in front of painted grids to suggest an analog adaptation of 8-bit video game graphics. It ended with electronic Com Truise playing in front of intricate geometric graphics by CandyStations that played well with the retro-futuristic elements woven into his pop-tinged techno.

Shake off a long, cold winter with these breezy new tracks from artists on the verge—slinky singers, bedroom R&B auteurs, and FoLs (Friends of Lorde).

Sam Smith, “Money on My Mind”
The Londoner’s swinging track—already a U.K. smash—pairs his aching voice with a groove fit for an energy-drink-stocked cocktail lounge. (It also helped nab him a slot on SNL.)
