Wilco, “If I Ever Was a Child”

This gentle, folky tune from Wilco's new LP (due in September) is so laid-back and pretty, you almost don't notice its haunted lyrics. But Wilco have always specialized in turning ambivalence into beauty.

Martha, “Ice Cream and Sunscreen”

"I know you wish for fireworks to light your July sky/I was the dampest box of matches you could ever hope to find," these adorable U.K. indie rockers sing as they go from strummy dejection to punk-rock fury. The result is a blazingly great anti-summer jam.

Win Butler, “K33p Ur Dr34ms”

The Arcade Fire frontman honored the passing of Suicide's Alan Vega with a lovingly creepy remix of his mutant ballad "Dream Baby Dream." It's a beautiful farewell to a punk icon.
