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.
Today, we’ve got selections from Solange Knowles, Trash Talk, Josh Homme, and more.
“Losing You” by Solange Knowles
If I had gotten the opportunity to ask Solange a question, I would have inquired about her clear inspirations in the weary beauty discographies of Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear rather than Etta James and Tina Turner, unlike SOMEONE in her family. The jagged beat more than makes up for the ridiculous music video.
“Numb” by Gary Clark Jr.
What Are You Experienced? would have sounded like had it been recorded in a garage.
“Spaceship” by MHz Legacy
RJD2, Copywrite, Jakki Da Motamouth, and Tage Future reunite, with wonky assistance from Danny Brown.
“Stone Letter” by Tomahawk
All the pent-up anticipation and near-rage that results from not releasing an album in six years comes out all at once on Tomahawk’s (made up of Faith No More’s Mike Patton, the Jesus Lizard’s Duane Denison, Mr. Bungle’s Trevor Dunn, and Battles’ John Stanier) first single from Oddfellows, due out January 29th.
“Nobody to Love” by Josh Homme
The Queens of the Stone Age’s frontman fuzzed-out contribution to the End of Watch soundtrack.
“Exile on Broadway” by Trash Talk
Ninety seconds of the kind of hardcore punk that you can understand every fifth word of.
Y’know, the good kind. Hear it here.
“All For the Love of Rock & Roll” by KISS
The world needs more Detroit Rock City GIFs.
