‘Sadness Town!’ plays terrible music for laughs

‘Sadness Town!’ plays terrible music for laughs

Local comedian David Tveite is sending-up Linkin Park, Godsmack and every other awful band you loved in high school.

Looking for a race less challenging than a marathon?

Forget 26.2 or 13.1. Try .10 or .05 if you want to participate in a race without months (or even minutes) of training.

Singles file: M.I.A., e-dubble, Ume

A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...

M.I.A.: “27”

An unusually subdued M.I.A. pays tribute to Amy Winehouse and other members of the “27 Club” in this unfinished, previously unreleased demo.

e-dubble: “Rebuild”

The underrated Baltimore rapper (and former member of Young English) drops a slightly less fiery follow-up to his should-have-been-a-breakthrough single, “Changed My Mind.”

Ume: “Captive”

Cross Metric with any number of ’90s nostalgists, such as Yuck, and you might come up with something like Ume (pronounced “ooh-may”), the Austin-based trio responsible for this barnburner of a track.

Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean and Curren$y: “Flowers”

Think of it as the anti-“Watch the Throne”: With a minimum of fuss and a maximum of chill, Khalifa and Co. have assembled an upcoming mix tape (whence this new track springs) chronicling their obsessions with weed and retro R&B, in that order.

Meat Puppets: “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (Nirvana cover)

In commemoration of the 20th(!) anniversary of “Nevermind,” Spin magazine commissioned a tribute project, “Newermind,” featuring this croaky standout from the one-time Nirvana compatriots.
