Mellow out to the gamer beats and adrenaline-charged drums that make up the ska-infused “Soldier”. Santigold sings with a neon coolness (as she always does), while Pharrell spits out hard-hitting raps—a jam engineered for the better spirits of our hipster nature.

You would be right to expect something a little more than “out there” from Philadelphia’s Annie Sachs, what with a name like Tickley Feather and all. She conjures up strange pop song-spells in step with her Paw Tracks cohorts, Black Dice and Animal Collective. Her upcoming album, Hors D’Ouevres, will be out next Tuesday, October 20th. Listen to “Don’t Call, Marylin”, a lo-fi pastiche of nursery rhyme rhythm, strung out keyboards, and watery-alien vocals, and check out her tour dates while you’re at it.

Classify this mashup of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” and Biggie’s “Party and Bullshit” by Hathbanger under “guilty pleasure”. Somehow Biggie’s verses make singing along to Miley’s chorus okay.

If I were getting dumped (and also in a band), the chorus of this song, “Don’t get me wrong, I like you / but I don’t like your band”, would be the least comforting thing I could imagine hearing. Here I am in a perfectly fine, mutually affectionate relationship, and it all turns to garbage. For what, Annie? My band? I thought we had something.
