A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...
Belle & Sebastian featuring Carey Mulligan: "Write About Love"
The newly beloved British actress teams with the eternally beloved Scots on the atypically muscular title track from their upcoming disc.
Pollyn featuring Freddie Gibbs: "Falling Out of Place (Pollyn remix)"
L.A. electronica meets Midwestern hip-hop on a Pollyn track remixed by Pollyn, for some reason.
Houses: "Soak It Up"
The Chicago girlfriend-boyfriend duo offer up one of the season's dreamiest chill pop songs.
Maximum Balloon featuring Karen O: "Communion"
Guitarist-producer Dave Sitek, helming the umpteenth TV on the Radio side project, communes with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman on this sinewy club-pop track.
2Pac featuring Fatal and Kurupt: "Ride for Me"
Thought the Pac vaults were empty? Think again: This previously unreleased track is West Coast hip-hop at its mellow best.
