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 Meek Mill, the Weeknd, the Gaslight Anthem, and more.
“Enemy” by the Weeknd
We didn’t think it’d be possible to rave any more about the Weeknd than we already did, and then he goes and quotes the Smiths. GET OUT OF OUR HEAD, ABEL.
“Dreams and Nightmares Intro” by Meek Mill
For more on this piano-sprinkled track, check out the Smoking Section.
“Here We Go” by Christopher Owens
After Christopher Owens announced that he was leaving Girls earlier this year, we were left guessing as to what his next move would be. It turns out the answer is: continue to record intimate, earnest softly-strummed songs, with the occasional build-up to small electric guitar flashes. So, Girls, without the rest of Girls.
“Looking for Love” by Chromatics
An edited version of a 17-minute bumpy electro-pop song, and one that’s easy to find yourself getting lost in.
“Here Comes My Man” by the Gaslight Anthem
The Gaslight Anthem are basically what Tom Petty would have sounded like had he been born in New Jersey in the 1970s. Here is the lastest offering with some assistance from Happy Endings star/UPROXX fan favorite, Elisha Cuthbert.
“Razor Gloves” by Vinnie Paz and RA the Rugged Man
Unforgiving and on fire, from Vinnie Paz’s just-released album, God of the Serengeti.
“Where the Wild Roses Grow” by Kylie Minogue and Nick Cave
A stripped-down, haunting Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue cover…by Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue, for her The Abbey Road Sessions.
