Spoon, "Inside Out"

Here is a video from Spoon's new album, They Want My Soul, which is the second most important thing you need to know about today if you like listening to Spoon: Here, free for now, are all ten songs streaming for free. [Via]

Low, "I'm on Fire"

Low covers Bruce Springsteen, 30 years later. Here, from the same upcoming tribute, are Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires with a rendition of "Born in the USA." [Via Stereogum]

Sinkane, "How We Be"

Here is a new soul track from Ahmed Gallab, aka Sinkane, who has spent time with Yeasayer, Caribou and Of Montreal, to name a few, and whose solo work has been consistently excellent for years now. [Via]

Sean O'Neill, "Vienna"

Gorgeous song, gorgeous video, familiar sound, unfamiliar name.

Lil Silva, "Mabel"

A breathy and beautiful track accompanied by a cool tribute to gray old England, where the Sun's light is missing like a quarter of the visible spectrum but everybody's too hardy to say anything about it. [Via]

DOOM and Bishop Nehru, "Darkness"

There is something very old, and satisfying, running through this track by DOOM, the guy who is always wearing a mask, and Bishop Nehru, the teen. [Via]

Zella Day, "East of Eden"

A track that takes little pieces of all the sounds that you hear everywhere right now, wraps them in a big heavy blanket, and tells them to relax for a few minutes. [Via]

Karen O, "Rapt"

Here is a little preview of a full album coming in September, which Karen O describes as a soundtrack to her "ʟᴏᴠᴇ ᴄʀᴜsᴀᴅᴇ."

Twin Peaks, "I Found A New Way"

A screamy and memorable addition to the under-served "walking around music" genre, from Chicago's Twin Peaks. [Via]

Body Language, "4 Real"

Maybe a little too exuberant to play when it's not sunny outside, or, at night, before your guests have gotten to their second drink. Context gives music life, and so context can TAKE IT AWAY. [Via]

Rome Fortune and Four Tet, "Lights Low"

Jerry Paper, “Real. Now. Love.”

Listen to this song from the other room, and over the sound of your fan, and you might hear a young Stephin Merritt fiddling around with a Casiotone. It's small and loose, and not to be turned up too loud. [Via]

Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs and A$AP Ferg, "Old English"

It's a hot day and the forecast is unhelpful. This is not a weekend for new music: It should probably be treated as a time to just play what you have, to listen to what keeps your temperature down, your mind soft, and your body afloat. And yet!

Jhené Aiko, "To Love & Die"

The best song on Drake's last album, the one with the underwater piano sounds, featured a long and show-stealing visit from young LA R&B artist Jhené Aiko. Here's her new track; she's even better without Drake dragging her down. [Via]

M.I.A., "Gold"

Just under two minutes of helpful forward propulsion for a deathly Friday. One foot in front of the other. Finger to the left, next finger to the right. Space, tap, tap tap, send. Start the song again.

Weezer, "Back To The Shack"

There is an alleviating simplicity to this song, which goes mostly where you expect it to until Rivers Cuomo starts talking about "rocking out like it's '94" and then suddenly things become quite dark.

Vashti Bunyan, "Across The Water"

Just another Diamond Day is 44 years old, and Vashti Bunyan has a new album coming out October. Time: Is it just a dumb lie???

Death of a Mr. Dream

The first Mr. Dream show was on Halloween night, 2008 in a New York City apartment. Adam Moerder, Matt Morello, and Nick Sylvester dressed up as Dhalsim from Street Fighter, Daniel Day-Lewis and “the Karate Kid [after] letting himself go (concept costume),” respectively, and played to a room that included “two furious girls who kept trying to dance and failing, since you can't really dance to a band that sounds like Nirvana, or the Wipers.” Over the next five years the band would go on to release a few EPs and an LP; tour with Archers of Loaf, Sleigh Bells, CSS, and Cloud Nothings; and sing in the [...]

Usher, Nicki Minaj & Pharrell, "She Came To Give It To You"

Would it be nice to have a better Song of the Summer than do-do-do, do-do FANCY, whodat, realest? Yes. Do we "deserve" a better Song of the Summer, as New York magazine suggests? Probably not. This track, a late contender, has as good a shot as any, but the fact that we're talking about this at all means it's probably far too late. Enjoy!

Titus Andronicus, "Stranded (On My Own)"

It's a good sign, I think, that even as it becomes clear that every Titus Andronicus song is assembled from the same small bag of parts, they still work well. The fundamentals: they are strong! [Via]
