Click to listen to Twin Sister's 'Bad Street'

Brooklyn-based quintet Twin Sister released their first full-length album, the dreamy In Heaven, on September 27th. Earlier this summer, the band filmed the video for lead single "Bad Street" during a neighborhood party at singer Andrea Estella's childhood home on Long Island. "Bad Street" is a cheerful pop song with a funky guitar riff that creates a bright, summery vibe. Twin Sister's keyboardist, Udbhav Gupta, tells Rolling Stone that "Bad Street" is "sewn together from many other songs. We had the easiest time recording it, and the video is a representation of what the song is about – being poor, but still having fun." In Heaven is available in stores now, but you can download "Bad Street" for free here.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
