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 FIDLAR, World’s Fair, Arctic Monkeys, and more.


“Red Right Hand” by FIDLAR

A bratty punk cover of a Nick Cave song from a band that hangs out with Nick Offerman and designs album covers featuring David Bowie/Nic Cage face mashups? It’s like a Mad Libs of things we love.

“What Death Leaves Behind” by Los Campesinos!

The ever-cynical Los Campesinos!’s last album was called Hello Sadness. Their upcoming one: No Blues. Maybe this is a new, more optimistic Los Campesinos! *listens to the climatic song* Well, for them, it’s happy progress.

“Street of Dreams” by Frankie Rose

Even as the synthy soundtrack to a John Hughes movie, the Damned’s “Street of Dreams” still sounds great.

“Your Honor” by Fat Joe ft. Action Bronson

“Stop the World I Wanna Get Off With You” by Arctic Monkeys

Even though the title of this seductive stomper references an overrated musical, it’s still pretty great.

“Sammy Sosa” by World’s Fair

Here’s the up-and-coming Queens collective World’s Fair talking sh*t over Black Noi$e’s killer production.
