A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...
Florence and the Machine: “Shake It Out”
The latest, most interesting leak from FATM’s coming album sounds like a recently unearthed collaboration between Enya and “Unforgettable Fire”-era U2.
Phonte: “The Good Fight”
Phonte Coleman and 9th Wonder, his former Little Brother bandmate, team up for this predictably great exercise in recession rap.
The Portland, Ore., quartet demonstrates a proficiency for twisty, rambling, deceptively complicated metal on this doom-a-riffic new track.
CANT: “Too Late, Too Far”
The maiden track from Grizzly Bear bassist Chris Taylor’s new CANT release is a weirdly accessible (for him, anyway), almost-pop song.
The Black Belles: “Honky Tonk Horror”
Jack White’s proteges mix surf, garage and kitschy horror-goth and still manageto sound like White on this new track, produced by White.
