Beach House: “Myth”
Gorgeous, gossamer-light pop from the Baltimore duo’s just-announced May disc, “Bloom.”
Garvey the Chosen One: “Roller”
The DMV heavyweight bumps the Auto-Tune to 11 on this laconic banger from his just-out “Money Train.” Like everything Garvey-related, it’s NSFW.
Battleme is mostly known for its cover of Neil Young’s “Hey Hey, My My,” which was featured prominently in “Sons of Anarchy.” At least until now: This falsetto-happy dance-rock number is a career-maker, with a video (Clones! Scooters! Clones on scooters!) to match.
Bobby Womack: “Please Forgive My Heart”
The ’70s soul titan gets the Hipster Comeback Treatment courtesy of Gorillaz’s Damon Albarn, who subtly updates Womack’s plaintive R&B on this sublime new track.
Kindness: “Swinging Party” (Replacements cover)
Vintage American alt-rock gets a second life as a narcotic, world-music-meets-electro-pop jam.
