If there's anyone who can kick the Tuesday blahs, it's Alex Winston. Hopefully by now you're already well-acquainted with the Detroit-bred singer and songwriter, a longtime NYLON fave who won us over in 2010 with ear candy tracks like "Animal Baby." With a full-length album to her name and enough playfully irresistible songs to fill an entire party playlist, the musician has returned. 

She debuted her new single "101 Vultures" back in the fall, and now the single gets the remix treatment from MS MR drummer Zach Nicita. He's kept the song's smoky, swirly backbone and added some twinkly beats and cranked-up tempo for a genre we're officially dubbing "indie space pop." It's chill enough for a Tuesday morning, but catchy enough to pull you out of bed. 

Download it for free below, and stay tuned for Winston's followup LP next year.
