Singles file: Likeblood, Broken Bells, Damien Jurado
By Allison Stewart
A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind.
Likeblood: "I Get It All"
The DMV up-and-comers follow up "Money Over Here" with this Judah-produced track from their new mix tape, "We All Alone: 3010."
Broken Bells: "The Mall and Misery"
The joint James Mercer/Danger Mouse disc is even better than you might think it would be, especially this dazzler of a closing track.
(Wu-Tang + Alicia Keys, after the jump.)
Meth, Ghost and Rae featuring Alicia Keys: "Our Dreams" (Ant Acid mix)
The Wu-Tang trio's latest, RZA-produced single gets mashed up with Keys's "Almost There," with surprisingly naturalistic results.
Damien Jurado: "Arkansas"
One of the best singer-songwriters you may never have heard of, Jurado usually makes albums that sound like "Nebraska," only leaner and more depressing. This atypically peppy, cinematic track hails from his upcoming "Saint Bartlett."
Cults: "Go Outside"
If Up With People made a soul record with the Shirelles, it might sound something like this springy new track from the unknown New York duo Cults; it's both freakish and freakishly good.
