Final Track: 7 Must-Hear Songs Of The Week

01.18.13 5 years ago 4 Comments

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 Jamie Lidell, Dave Grohl, Pissed Jeans, and more.

“From Can to Can’t” by Dave Grohl, Corey Taylor, Rick Nielsen, and Scott Reeder

Dave Grohl and Slipknot, together at last. Or at least the heavy metal band’s vocalist, Corey Taylor, who joins Grohl, Scott Reeder from Kyuss, and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen on “From Can to Can’t,” a single from the Sound City – Real to Reel soundtrack that puts all other soundtracks to shame. Related: Grohl was on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast this week, and it’s definitely worth listening to.

“Why_ya_why” by Jamie Lidell

Like a jazz band covering a Cee-Lo Green song filtered through a dial-up modem.

“Came Up” by Raekwon

“Screwdriver” by Prince

A mysterious Twitter account has been leaking Prince songs the past couple of weeks, beginning with the previously unreleased “Same Different Page” and, most recently, another until-now unheard song, “Screwdriver,” an exhilteratng, fuzzed-out jam. Whoever’s running the account, please don’t stop.

Oh boy. Here’s reason #492 to not like Glee:

Fox teen musical show Glee will resume their fourth season on Thursday (1/24) and if you somehow end up watching, you’ll notice that they’ll be singing a cover of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.” However, NYC geek rock fave Jonathan Coulton just tweeted that they ripped of his cover of the song without contacting him.

His version is above, theirs is below. Judge for yourself if Coulton has reason to gripe (he does).

“Cathouse” by Pissed Jeans

Grimy fury from the urine-soaked quartet, who will release their fourth album, Honeys, in February.

“Jubilee Street” by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Slinking along like a nimble cat on a window ledge, “Jubilee Street,” our second sneak peek of Nick Cave’s next album, Push the Sky Away, slowly builds into an explosive ending, and further reminds us that there’s no one else out there quite like the Bad Seeds.
