The Singles - "Sweet Tooth" (audio) (premiere)

Post-punk meets powerpop on the LA band's latest track.

Starting off with a wicked opening riff nicked straight from Wire, the new track by Los Angeles band the Singles (the real Singles, not the celebrity band formerly known as the Singles) quickly shifts into the kind of hooky garage punk rock 'n' roll that they've always excelled at. It's a small taste of what you can expect from their fourth album, which will be released in early 2016.

"This is one of the first new tunes we started playing live shortly after all the touring off of last year's album," the band says. "The music came together quickly with the band, and the recording didn't take too long either."

Over the Rainbow: An Interview With Herb Alpert

Music legend Herb Alpert discusses his new album, Over the Rainbow, maintaining his artistic drive, and his place in music history. "If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
