Singles file: Soundgarden, Taylor Swift, Frightened Rabbit
By Allison Stewart
A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...
Soundgarden: "Black Rain"
Originally recorded for "Badmotorfinger," this supremely sludgy outtake chilled in the vault until now, biding its time until the inevitable greatest hits package/grudging reunion show.
Frightened Rabbit: "Son C"
Scotland's mopiest/awesomest indie pop band returns with a not-unhappy song about death.
Taylor Swift: "Mine"
On this maiden single from her October disc, "Speak Now," Swift cribs from every hit she's ever had - and remains adorable.
Yeasayer: "O.N.E." (Teen Daze remix)
Yeasayer's already much-tweaked hit gets electro-fied, courtesy of Canadian bedroom savant Teen Daze.
André 3000: "I Do"
It's not the Dre of our dreams, but considering the unicorn-like rarity of new material from the OutKast rapper, this tagged, low-quality leak from Limelight Exclusives' upcoming mix tape is better than nothing.
