Los Lonely Boys are hard at work on their follow-up to 2011's Rockpango and have just teased out this new track, "Blame It on Love." In it, the rockers combine their musical Tejano roots with bluesy rock, harmonizing on tales of difficult times and romantic interests. There's plenty of time to jam out, too, and Los Lonely Boys pack in some slick guitar work between the storytelling. "It can turn your whole life upside down/ If you need a reason why," they sing.

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
