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

Best Coast and Wavves: "Got Something for You"

The inevitable collaboration between Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino and boyfriend/Wavves frontman Nathan Williams is one of the holiday season's greatest tracks, a stoner twee explosion that hews closer to her aesthetic than his.

Keri Hilson, featuring Kanye West: "Pretty Girl Rock" (remix)

Hilson and West acquit themselves nicely on the kind of girl-power-in-name-only anthem Christina Aguilera would have absolutely laid waste to, back in her day.

Iron and Wine: "Walking Far From Home"

More narcotic and effects-heavy than usual, Sam Beam's woozy new single was issued in celebration of Black Friday's bonus Record Store Day.

Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx: "NY Is Killing Me"

The xx's beat maker-in-chief lends a sinister cast to the influential musician's comeback track - part of his coming Heron remix disc, "We're New Here."

David Lynch: "Good Day Today"

Director Lynch's latest foray into music-making is an early 2000s-evoking disco-pop number with mechanized vocals that's every bit as pleasantly odd as you might imagine.
