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 Main Attrakionz, Bob Dylan, “Sir Ian McKellen,” and more

“Do It For The Bay” by Main Attrakionz ft. DaVinci

Now, hear me out: if songs were expensive bubble baths, I would soak in this track forever and never leave the tub. So silky, so smooth, so clean.

“F.E.B.N.” by Trash Talk

Brutal hardcore punk, with a hint of melody, from Trash Talk’s Odd Future Records debut album.

“The Message” by Mr. Muthaf*ckin’ eXquire

Over a (most likely) El-P beat and NWA “Dopeman” sample, Mr. eXquire raps about food. There are a lot of things to like in that sentence.

“Curtain” by Flock of Dimes

Wye Oak released one of 2011’s best albums in Civilian, and now the band’s fantastic lead singer/guitarist, Jenn Wasner, is working on her solo side project before heading back into the studio with Andy Stack. “Curtain” is more experimental and synth-heavy than anything Wasner has put out before, though her commanding voice remains the true highlight, as ever.

“Duquesne Whistle” by Bob Dylan

Easy, breezy Bob Dylan.

“Seven Years of Bad Luck for Fun” by the Gaslamp Killer and Dimlite

A clanking, mosquito buzz beat from the San Diego-based producer who will put out his first album via Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label on September 18th.

“Baby Got Back” by Sir Ian McKellen

Track of the year.
