Singles file: Wild Nothing, Kingpen Slim, Jazmine Sullivan
By Allison Stewart
Wild Nothing: "Your Rabbit Feet"
Singer-songwriter Jack Tatum, creator of "Gemini," already one of 2010's best discs, returns with more indelibly good, Cure-inspired sad pop.
Kingpen Slim: "Gone"
Slim lives the dream on this track from his upcoming "The Beam Up 2," now with an agreeably low-budget, straight-out-of-1998 video.
Jazmine Sullivan: "Holding You Down (Goin' in Circles)"
The Missy Elliott-co-produced leadoff track from Sullivan's upcoming sophomore disc references, among other things, Mary J. Blige and Nas and the Firm's "Affirmative Action."
H.U.N.X: "Can a Man Hear Me"
This stone-cold-adorable dance-floor rave-up comes courtesy of glo-fi outfit Teengirl Fantasy, in league with Hunx and His Punx.
Cee-Lo Green: "No One's Gonna Love You" (Band of Horses cover)
The Gnarls Barkley vocalist and unexpected lover of really sad indie songs gives the BOH classic an affectionate, soulful redo.
