Stay up to date wit the week’s most talked about music and vote in our “Best of the Best” vote after our rundown.


Joe Goddard

“Gabriel” (Soulwax Remix)

[DFA Records]

Soulwax fans who are still dining out on their last proper album, 2005’s Nite Versions, must be getting a little bit impatient by now. But, the quality of that album means that whenever a track comes with Soulwax’s name attached to it there’ll be a scramble to hear that. Apply that name to last year’s fantastic solo single from Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and you have yourself a winning combination.

Florence + the Machine & Josh Homme

“Jackson” (Johnny Cash cover)


Perhaps it’s that the combination is just so intriguing, or perhaps it’s just that the fanbases of both acts were drawn to the same video, but Josh Homme and Florence Welch’s collaboration is one that got people clicking. Even more so because they’re covering a Johnny Cash song – something that appeals to pretty much every real music fan in the world.

Animal Collective

“Peacebone” (Timberwolf Remix)

Although Timberwolf’s rendition of Animal Collective’s Strawberry Jam jam is marked as a remix, the truth is that it’s more or less a straight-up cover. By using more organic instruments than the synths that Animal Collective use on the Strawberry Jam version, the result ends up sounding like it might have sounded had the band decided to record the song in the style of Feels or Sung Tongs.

“No. 1 Against The Rush”


If there’s anything Liars are willing to do, it’s throw a left curve. “No. 1 Against the Rush” sees them going into the hole of synths, almost to a Future Islands degree, but they still come out strong while staying explorative, which is definitely the Liars touch. Color us intrigued for their upcoming album WIXIW.

Kanye West

“Theraflu” (feat. DJ Khaled)

[G.O.O.D. Music]

This week, the entire blogosphere was waiting for the much-hyped “Mercy,” the first single from the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music album. But Kanye surprised everyone when he leaked this track too. Hit-Boy, hot off “Ni**as in Paris” fame, provides production that is both energetic and hypnotizing, complimenting Kanye’s lyrical work, which ranges from confessing his love to Kim Kardashian to calling out PETA. If this is any indication of Kanye’s new solo work, then there is a lot to look forward to in the future of G.O.O.D. Music.
