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 Solange and Kendrick Lamar, Camera Obscura, TV on the Radio, and more.

“Looks Good with Trouble” by Solange and Kendrick Lamar

“Well,” says Solange to big sister Beyoncé, “you may have announced that you were pregnant this week, but I released my remix of ‘Looks Good With Trouble’ from my True EP, with some help from Kendrick Lamar. What do you think about it?” Beyoncé stops combing her hair for a moment, turns around to look at Solange, and says, “Bills, Bills, Bills.” Solange walks out of the room, brushing away a single tear before anyone notices.

“Keep Your Eyes Peeled” by Queens of the Stone Age

With Daft Punk “out of the way,” the next major album to look forward to is …Like Clockwork from Queens of the Stone Age. Here’s another lurching, vaguely industrial sneak peek, “Keep Your Eyes Peeled.”

“We Go Wherever We Want” by French Montana ft. Diddy, Ne-Yo, and Raekwon

“Kiss Land” by the Weeknd

The soundtrack to the sexiest horror movie ever, the title track from the Weeknd’s upcoming album, or both?

“Mercy” on TV by the Radio

TV on the Radio are currently working on a new album (yay), but they’re still on the road, playing old favorites and new soon-to-be classics, including the spiky “Mercy.” Reminiscent of the punkier TV on the Radio of old.

“Illest N*ggaz Breathin’” by Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire

Soak yourself in those Mortal Kombat samples, you’ll never want to leave.

“Fifth In Line to the Throne” by Camera Obscura

“Fifth In Line to the Throne” is the second single from Desire Lines, Camera Obscura’s first album in four years. It’s graceful, tender, gorgeous, and lonesome. In other words, it’s a Camera Obscura song.
