Click here to listen to Ivy's "Distant Lights"

New York pop trio Ivy make melancholy sound chic. This new single is typically seductive: sleek beat, wistful melody and a vaguely noirish scene set by Dominique Durand in a voice pitched halfway between a coo and a sigh. "Distant Lights is, in a sense, the most important song on [All Hours]," Durand told Rolling Stone. "It's the song that created and led to the direction of this record." Ivy's new album, All Hours, is in stores now, and you can download "Distant Lights" for free here.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
