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. (via Getty Image)

Today, we’ve got selections from Cut Copy, FIDLAR, Sebadoh, and more


“Let Me Show You” by Cut Copy

The future of music distribution: “At the 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, IL, there was a live demo on how to make a record with a lathe. They were making the new Cut Copy single, ‘Let Me Show You.’ 40 of them were made a day for all 3 days of the festival, only 120 total. Each one also has the buyer’s name etched by hand into the inner part of the record.” So, if you wanna see awkward white guys dance, you know where to go.

“Awkward” by FIDLAR

Even without a drunk Ron Swanson pissing everywhere, these guys still kick sh*t up.

“Summertime in That Cutlass” by Nipsey Hussle

“Too Dry Too Cry” by Willis Earl Beal

Someone check to see if Willis Earl Beal is related to Tom Waits. They’re certainly spiritual brothers.

“Join Me on My Avalanche” by Explosions in the Sky

A song that makes you want to do something dramatic, or at least throw a football really far.

“I Will” by Sebadoh

Sebadoh (with Lou Barlow) return with their first album in 14 years, Defend Yourself, on September 17th, and here’s the first single, “I Will,” a weathered, passionate rocker that promises the band hasn’t lost a step.

“The Weight” by Bob Dylan, Jeff Tweedy, and Jim James

Take a load off, Bob Dylan, and let Jeff and Jim take the lead.
