Thanks to great new material from the likes of Liars, Japandroids, and Temper Trap, this week’s playlist goes heavy on indie rock. Underground hip-hop is also repped hard by Mississippi mixtaper Big K.R.I.T. And then there’s the obscure little garage heroes the Beach Boys, who recently reemerged for their comeback album That’s Why God Made the Radio.
Also on deck this week: a new collaboration between Sean Kingston and T.I., a fiddle-heavy number from Zac Brown Band, and a downtempo howler from Swede garage monkeys the Hives. And if Wilco’s “Me Avivé” sounds a little familiar to you, it’s because they covered their The Whole Love standout “Dawned on Me” – in Spanish. Y se trabaja muy bien!
