A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...
Britney Spears: "Hold It Against Me"
Is it a Gaga slayer? Probably not, but the first track from Spears' upcoming don't-call-it-a-comeback disc mixes the best of Gaga, RiRi and mid-'00s electro-inspired Europop.
Middle Brother: "Me Me Me"
The leaders of Delta Spirit, Dawes and Deer Tick form a blog-baiting supertrio with an unexpectedly raucous debut single that's equal parts early Guided By Voices and vintage Big Star.
Curren$y featuring Sir Michael Rocks and Tabi Bonney: "Fly Out (Part Tres)"
The ever-prolific Spitta enlists Bonney and half of The Cool Kids for this super-funky, Michael Jordan-dissing new track.
Second City Rhythm: "You Got Me"
Chicago DJ Adulture and British remixer Ghosts of Venice unite for this disco house scorcher, the maiden single from their upcoming EP.
Villagers: "Old Man" (Neil Young cover)
Ireland's greatest one-man band essays an uncannily good, essentially faithful cover of Young's "Harvest" classic for Mojo magazine's upcoming tribute disc, "Harvest Revisited."
