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. (via Getty Image)
Today, we’ve got selections from Yuck, Earl Sweatshirt, Los, and more.
“Party at the NSA” by YACHT and Marc Maron
Grizzled podcast host Marc Maron and electropop duo YACHT, together at last, playing a “joyous send-up of the security agency” NSA, with proceeds going toward the Electronic Frontier Foundation? Obviously.
“Between Villains” by DOOM, Earl Sweatshirt, and Flying Lotus
Adult Swim brought together DOOM, Earl Sweatshirt, and Flying Lotus for their Singles series. Because they can.
“Control Freestyle” by Los

“You’ve Got Me Wonderin’ Now” by Parquet Courts
As a follow-up to this year’s excellent Light Up Gold, earnest garage rockers (or whatever guys in Brooklyn use instead of garages — parking garages?) Parquet Courts are releasing a five-track EP, Tally All the Things That You Broke, in October. Here’s the respectably punky first single, “You’ve Got Me Wonderin’ Now.”
“Hand Stand” by Danny Brown
Filthy, absolutely filthy. No, really, listen to the lyrics.
“Middle Sea” by Yuck
The dream of (indie record stores in) the 1990s is alive in Yuck.
“Slough” by Toro y Moi
When not bitching about God on Twitter, The Office creator Ricky Gervais occasionally slips back into his unironed David Brent shirts and plays original compositions. “Slough” is no “Free Love Freeway,” but it’s the song Toro y Moi decided to cover. It sounds like David Bowie on Vicodin.
