Singles file: Rihanna f. Mariah Carey, J. Roddy Walston and the Business, Glasser

Remix: The Blondes take over Rihanna's "Rude Boy." (Tracy A. Woodward/TWP)

By Allison Stewart

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

Rihanna featuring Mariah Carey: "Rude Boy (Blondes remix)"

Blondes, the analog-obsessed Brooklynites, turn Rihanna's inescapable hit into a stuttering, Mariah-assisted jam that, at the very least, will no longer remind anyone of M.I.A.'s "Boyz."

J. Roddy Walston and the Business:
"Don't Break the Needle"

If a "Toys in the Attic"-era Steven Tyler fronted a Southern version of the Black Keys in 2002, it would sound a lot like this raggedy, high-octane Baltimore band, whose self-titled new disc is one of the summer's slept-on gems.

Yung L.A. featuring Wale, Pill and JR Get Money:
"Level Above"

Wale! Pill! Superfluous laser noises!

Glasser: "Home"

One-woman-band Cameron Mesirow, the latest breakout blog star from the True Panther stable, makes like an electro-fied Joni Mitchell on this quiet riot of xylophones and loops.

Super Wild Horses:

Wondering what Sleigh Bells would sound like if it were run by punk cheerleaders who'd never heard of '80s metal? Something like this Aussie duo's latest track -- or at least, we'd like to think so.

Super Wild Horses sound real good - hope they come to town sometime soon.

J. Roddy Walston makes me wish Baltimore bands played more in DC than they do. Why wasn't Ponytail a regular at DC clubs?
