Super special Girls Girls Girls edition!
Far East Movement featuring Rye Rye: “Jello”
If there’s any justice, FEM’s latest banger will do more for Baltimore’s perpetual lady-in-waiting Rye Rye than their “Like a G6” did for Dev (which wasn’t much).
Charli XCX: “Nuclear Seasons”
The teenage British schoolgirl turned nascent electropop star channels Marina and the Diamonds on this retro-futuristic new track.
Stone Darling: “Baby Come Home”
The L.A.-based all-girl band mixes Best Coast, Linda Ronstadt and various Wall of Sound girl groups and comes up with an entirely new brand of distortion-heavy country on this remarkable new track.
More sped-up, burbly, falsetto-happy pop from the Montreal-based singer.
Garbage: “Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses” (U2 cover)
More than six years past their last studio release, Shirley Manson and Co. make a subdued but impressive return with this track from Q Magazine’s upcoming “Achtung Baby” tribute disc.
