Singles file: Chris Brown, The Secret Sisters, Sleigh Bells, Boobe, Gayngs


It'll take more than one star-studded remix to blot out Chris Brown's bad PR. (Frederick M. Brown/Getty)

By Allison Stewart

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

Chris Brown featuring Drake, Kanye West, T.I., Fabolous, Rick Ross and Andre 3000:Deuces (Remix)

The latest stop on his Let’s Just Forget the Whole Thing Happened Tour: A Chris Brown remix so epic, so masterful, it’s almost possible to forget Chris Brown is on it.

The Secret Sisters featuring Jack White:Big River

The Alabama duo, part-time signees to White’s Third Man label, team with the boss for a Johnny Cash cover equally influenced by the Andrews Sisters and Led Zeppelin.

Sleigh Bells:Holly

This muddy, Ke$ha-evoking, hopelessly catchy track first appeared on a pre-“Treats” demo; slightly reworked, it’s now a B-side.

Boobe featuring Raheem DeVaughn: “My Way

From the Department of Things We Wish Were Sinatra Covers: The Oy Boyz mainstay enlists DeVaughnÖ for this mid-tempo banger that’s pretty great, regardless.

Gayngs:By Your Side

The super mellow supergroup (featuring Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, among many others) essays the longest, irony-free -est Sade cover in the long history of irony-free Sade covers.

Comments

The "Deuces" review came off as myopic and vitriolic. But, I should have been expecting that after I read "A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind." Unfortunately, that one track is closed when it comes to Chris Brown. I wanted a review of the song, not a personal attack. Allison Stewart comes off like a Rihanna stan. Can the Post let someone do this review that will review the song and not the man's personal life?
