Singles file: She & Him, Dominique Young Unique, Black Mountain

she and himShe & Him tackle a tune written by kids. (Autumn De Wilde)

By Allison Stewart

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

She & Him: "Earth"

Many of She & Him's breezy, guileless songs sound like they were written by children, but this one actually was: It's a cover of a kid-penned track from the all-star disc "Chickens in Love," with proceeds benefiting juvenile literacy projects.

Dominique Young Unique: "Blaster"

This demolition derby of a song is one of the highlights of the teenage rapper's terrifyingly assured new mix tape, "Domination."

Black Mountain: "Old Fangs"

Remember when Black Mountain used to be all Sabbath-y and menacing? These days, not as much. The new single from their September disc, "Wilderness Heart," is a summery slice of post-apocalyptic, stoner-rock perfection.

Young Rebel Set: "If I Was"

With its impenetrable accents and winsome, Springsteenian adorableness, YRS is the U.K.'s answer to Gaslight Anthem, if Gaslight Anthem made gentle, NPR-friendly folk songs like this one.

Ciara featuring Andre 3000 and Bei Maejor: "Ride (Remix)"

For reasons that are unclear, Dre emerges from his undisclosed location to contribute a verse to the pop remix of Ciara's spiffy new single.
