Singles file: Pusha T, Rye Rye, the Decemberists
A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...
Pusha T: "My God"
Half of the Clipse goes solo on this new, spooky (and maybe still unfinished?) cut that likely hails from his upcoming "Fear of God" mix tape.
Rye Rye: "Party in the U.S.A." (Remix)
Charm City's perpetual star-in-waiting jubilantly covers/remixes Miley Cyrus's populist hoedown, rendering it even more awesome. From her new mix tape, "RYEot PowRR."
Wolfram featuring Hercules and Love Affair: "Fireworks"
The Austrian producer and musician teams with the N.Y.C.-based band for this old-school house/Italo-disco-inspired track.
Daddy Lion: "The Scientist's Lament"
The newest song from Daddy Lion, the bedroom project of District-based singer-songwriter Jeremy Joseph, offers a denser, woolier take on Bob Mould-inspired, early-'90s college rock.
The Decemberists: "Cuyahoga" (R.E.M. cover)
This live-on-air cover of the '86 classic, recorded last week at KCRW, serves as a reminder of how great the Decemberists are and, less happily, how great R.E.M. once was.
