Our latest playlist ranges from a Rolling Stones blues throwback – an advance cut from their upcoming LP, Blue & Lonesome – to a standout track from Solange's quietly radical new LP, A Seat at the Table. Also on offer: the debut solo single from Dirty Projectors member Amber Coffman, a frantic emo-punk blast from Philly up-and-comers Mannequin Pussy and more.

Rolling Stones, “Just Your Fool”

This version of Little Walter's 1960 stomper – from the Stones' forthcoming blues covers LP, Blue & Lonesome – sounds like hungry kids cutting loose in a basement. It's the rawest music they've made in ages.

The Killers, “Peace of Mind”

A power-ballad bonus from the Killers' heyday included on the reissue of their 2006 LP Sam's Town. It's pure Bruce Jovi dream-schlock, as if Brandon Flowers just found the graduation gown from "Thunder Road" and he's going to set it on fire.

Randy Newman, “Putin”

Inspired by those gross pictures of Vlad shirtless on a horse, Newman gives us a hilarious image of the evil dictator as the world's creepiest lady's man. Now, how about a Trump tune?

Amber Coffman, “All to Myself”

Coffman's lovely, elastic voice has long been a highlight of songs by Brooklyn art-pop crew Dirty Projectors. Here she steps out with a New Wave–y waltz that makes loneliness feel like heaven.

Radiohead, “Ill Wind”


Tucked into the vinyl edition of A Moon Shaped Pool, "Ill Wind" is Radiohead inventing a new genre: Arctic bossa nova. Proof their afterthoughts are as inventive as other bands' careers.

Solange, “Cranes in the Sky”

This standout from Solange's excellent new album, A Seat at the Table, is a string-bathed meditation on hard-won empowerment that has an honesty and resilience worthy of Aretha Franklin, and Beyoncé, too.
