Singles file: Tennis, U.C.B. f. Wale, the Vaselines
By Allison Stewart
A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...
The husband-and-wife duo craft a peppy, lo-fi ode to Charm City.
U.C.B. featuring Wale: "Diana"
The DMV go-go all-stars team with frequent collaborator Wale on this putatively Diana Ross-inspired, (very) unofficial "Pat Your Weave" follow-up.
The Vaselines: "I Hate the '80s"
Kurt Cobain's favorite Scots return after a 20-year hiatus with this supremely grouchy "We Didn't Start the Fire"-like rundown of everything they hated about the Reagan era (spoiler alert: They're coming for you, Simon Le Bon).
Freddie Gibbs featuring Bun B., Chuck Inglish, Chip Tha Ripper and Dan Auerbach: "Oil Money"
The latest leak from Gibbs's increasingly impressive "Str8 Killa" features the Cool Kids' Inglish and an awe-inspiring vocal from Black Key Auerbach.
The Kleptones: "Come Again (Beatles vs. Beasties vs. Daft Punk, et al)"
What do you get when you cross Eric Kleptones' song-filching "Come Again" with a montage of classic movie dance numbers? Multimedia mash-up nirvana.
