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 Phantogram, Wavves, Lupe Fiasco, and more.
“I Need a Word” by Dave Matthews and Grover
Just Dave Matthews playing the banjo with Grover and oh yeah they pretend to be superheroes flying through the air. It’s the best Dave Matthews Band song…ever? (Except for “#41.” “#41” is the best.)
“Black Out Days” by Phantogram
It’s been four years since pleasing electro-synth duo Phantogram released their debut album, but they’e back in the studio, working on their sophomore effort. Here’s an impressive listen to what they’re working on.
“Peace of Paper/Cup of Jayzus” by Lupe Fiasco
For more, check out the Smoking Section.
“A Real Hero” by High Highs
High Highs’ cover of “A Real Hero” from the Drive soundtrack is stunning. Then again, that song is perfect, two farting bullfrogs could do a version of it and it’d still sound radiant.
“Nine Is God” by Wavves
Wavves will have an entire radio station of their own on Grand Theft Auto V, including “Nine Is God,” a song written specifically for the highly-anticipated video game. WHICH COMES OUT NEXT WEEK.
“Electric Lady (Remix)” by Janelle Monáe ft. Cee-Lo, Big Boi, and Solange
This only helps Janelle Monáe’s fierceness.
“Revolution” by Diplo
Your weekend assignment: count the number of asses on the album artwork to Diplo’s rumbling “Revolution.”
