Singles file: Best Coast, BADBADNOTGOOD, Pistol Annies

Best Coast recently offered a rough demo of a new song. (Kyle Gustafson/For The Washington Post)
A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...

Best Coast: “How They Want Me to Be”

This sweet, stoner-y, atypically weighty new track is a rough demo that might make it onto Bethany Cosentino’s in-progress new disc.

BADBADNOTGOOD: “Camel” (Flying Lotus cover)

The Canadian jazz fusionists (and inveterate Odd Future reinterpreters) take on Flying Lotus, with predictably awesome results.

Pistol Annies: “Hell on Heels”

The video for the finger-waggingly sassy new single from Miranda Lambert’s all-girl side project confirms what we’ve always suspected: Country divas, like their hip-hop counterparts, really do carry tiny dogs everywhere.

Moonface: “Return to the ­Violence of the Ocean Floor”

Wolf Parade/Sunset Rubdown singer Spencer Krug’s Moonface project specializes in densely layered, amorphously structured, organ-centric non-pop. This off-putting and fascinating new track sounds like an outtake from the strangest Cure album ever.

Cities Aviv and Royal’T: “Araw”

Cities Aviv, best known for his recent, Depeche Mode-sampling blog hit “Die Young,” teams with fellow Memphis rapper Royal’T for this strange, delicious exercise in super-soulful shoegaze rap.
