It’s impossible to cover each bit of new music that comes out during the week, so every Friday, we’ll be doing an end of the week music roundup. It’s called Final Track, and we’ll count off a few songs released during the week that are worth giving a listen to. (Banner via)
Today, we’ve got selections from Free Energy, Fuzz, Paul F. Tompkins, and more.
“Skyfall” by Paul F. Tompkins
The Cake Boss himself one-ups Adele with an extra dramatic rendition of the title track from the latest James Bond movie, while wearing an outfit straight out of a 1940s barbershop. But why is the crowd laughing??? It’s actually all kinds of great and played totally straight, as it should.
“Shut the F*ck Up” by Angel Haze
Yup, still mad.
Driver’s Ed by Joe Cool

“This Time I Got A Reason” by Fuzz
It’s apparently Ty Segall’s mission in life to form 20 bands and release 45 albums in 2012 and 2013, which is fine with us, if it all sounds like “This Time I Got a Reason” (it will), the first piece of new music from his latest fittingly named group, Fuzz.
“Go Slow” by Haim
Sister trio Haim are the prestigious winner of the Sound of 2013, according to the BBC, tasked to lead the “Music Revolution.” (Previous Sound winners include Michael Kiwanuka, Keane, 50 Cent, and Ellie Goulding.) The vulnerable “Go Slow” has been out for a few months now, but it’s worth a listen, if only because you’ll likely be hearing a lot about the group this year, especially since they’re opening for Mumford & Sons on their arena tour.
“Honey” by Torres
A slow, soft burn…right up the moment where the 22-year-old explodes into a wall of feedback. Suddenly, January 22, when Torres’ self-titled debut comes out, is a date worth circling.
“Girls Want Rock” by Free Energy
Energy drinks: the band.
