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 Sleigh Bells, Best Coast, Deervana, and more.

“You Don’t Get Me Twice” by Sleigh Bells

Another cute-loud listen from Sleigh Bells’ Bitter Rivals. Recommended for those into goth cheerleaders.

“Side A (Old)” by Danny Brown

“Brighter!” by Cass McCombs

Back in 2009, Easy Rider actress Karen Black and Cass McCombs performed his “Dreams Come True Girl” together. It’s one of the greatest songs of his very great career, made extra special (and tragic) by the fact that Black passed away earlier this year. “Brighter!” is another track they collaborated on, and it’s being released as part of the massive double-disc Big Wheel and Others album. Black warmly sings the entire thing.

“Find My Way (Oneohtrix Point Never Remix)” by Nine Inch Nails

Oneohtrix Point Never lay digital waste to “Find My Way,” from Nine Inch Nails’ Hesitation Marks.

“I Don’t Know How” by Best Coast

Beast Coast are releasing a mini-album sometime in the fall, which is a very good thing, with one exception: the cut-in-half “I Don’t Know How” sounds better in the hot summer sunshine, as all Best Coast songs do.

“Hold On We’re Going Home” by We Are Twin

A cover of Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home,” through a filter of stabbing garage rock-pop and snarled vocals.

“All Apologies” by Deervana

Every so often, Deer Tick will transform into Deervana and play only Alice in Chains songs. Actually, they become the world’s best Nirvana tribute band, and in honor of the 20th anniversary of In Utero, Deervana played the entirety of the album, from “Serve the Servants” to “All Apologies.” Download the whole gig here.
