Click to listen to Quakers' 'Russia with Love (feat. Coin Locker Kid)'

Quakers is a 35-member hip-hop collective centered on a core trio of producers – 7-Stu-7, Katalyst and Fuzzface, who is better known as Geoff Barrow of Portishead. "Russia With Love," a new track featuring Coin Locker Kid, was produced by Katalyst. "When I made this beat, I knew who to send it to," the producer tells Rolling Stone. "The track is in 7/8 and seemed like it might be a bit of a challenge, but Coin Locker Kid came up with the goods the first time round." Quakers' self-titled debut album is in stores now, but you can download "Russia With Love" for free here.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
