A weekly collection of songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Sampha, Andrew Bird, Troye Sivan, and more sounds best paired with iced tea and open windows.

If you listen to no other new music this week, give "Timmy's Prayer" a listen. I never pictured myself an R&B fan, but this electro-fusion track is equal parts soul-searching melody and addictive thrumming bass line. In other words, rhythm and blues. And it's been on repeat all week.
