Part of the pleasure of listening to music is tracking down the less obvious joys: obscure covers, remixes and deep cuts that didn’t get a whole lot of attention. There were plenty such songs kicking about in 2013, and it seems a shame not to draw attention to them just because they didn’t quite make it onto our albums of the year list — so here are 20 songs that you may or may not have read about elsewhere, and that your correspondent enjoyed greatly over the last 12 months. … Read More

The 5 Best New Songs We Heard This Week: HTRK, Blood Orange

As we wind down toward the end of the year, releases become fewer and further between, and abridged versions of our regular best-songs-of-the-week roundups become a more frequent occurrence.

It’s Friday, which means that it’s time to look back at the best new music we’ve heard over the last few days.

All this is streaming for absolutely nothing after the jump, so click through and get listening! … Read More

It’s Friday, which means that we’re hungover as hell from our very own Silent Drape Runners’ Lil B party last night, and also that it’s time for our regular roundup of new music to get your hands on this week.

10 MP3s You Need to Download for Free This Week: Twin Shadow, Hunx

It’s Friday, and we’re back with another installment of our regular roundup of downloadable MP3 goodness from around the web.
