Singles file: Sia, Pearl Jam f. Ben Bridwell, Lil B

siaSia goes mainstream on her latest.

By Allison Stewart

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

Sia: "The Fight"

On the giddy opening track to her upcoming "We Are Born," Sia completes her transformation from remote electro artist to (almost) mainstream pop star.

Pearl Jam and Ben Bridwell: "Hunger Strike" (live)

Beards! '90s Nostalgia! Awkward man-hugs! The Band of Horses frontman takes over for Chris Cornell during the bands' recent joint performance at Madison Square Garden, resulting in the cutest, endearing-est "Temple of the Dog" rendition ever.

Lorn: "Tomorrow"

Mysterious Midwestern beatmaker Lorn is one of the standout acts on Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label and a leading crafter of ominous, goosebump-raising tracks like this one, from his upcoming full-length debut, "Nothing Else."

Lil B: "Real Life" (Pictureplane's True Reality Re-Edit)

You might have thought Pack rapper Lil B's tale of misery and death couldn't get any more depressing. You would be wrong.

M. Ward: "Howlin' for My Baby" (Howlin' Wolf cover)

Ward, the usually stone-faced male half of She & Him, vamps his way through this steamy contribution to the second "True Blood" soundtrack.

Comments

Not the biggest Band of Horses fan but that rendition of Hunger Strike is so charming. He is obviously living out the dream of every kid who rocked out to that song back in the day. For a few short moments, that video let me live that dream as well.

Is "Hunger Strike" the best song of the alt-rock era? Discuss.
