Music We Loved This Week: Ghostface ft. the Weeknd, Foos, Aubrie Sellers, and more

(Ringo Starr)

A few million of you are still hopping on that Adele train, but that’s not the only good music you need. Here are six tracks we can’t stop spinning. (But yeah, you do still need Adele).

The Weeknd ft. Ghostface Killah, “Tell Your Friends”

Kanye West manned the boards for “Tell Your Friends,” the luxuriously soulful jam on the Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness. West himself doesn’t guest on the original version and the track has a conspicuous, stellar-rap-verse-sized hole. Ghostface Killah remedied that problem this week, spitting some bars over West’s topshelf beat to finally complete the picture. And don’t fear, Weeknd purists — singer Abel Tesfaye’s vocal contributions remain intact on this extended remix. —Eric Renner Brown

Foo Fighters, Saint Cecilia EP

America’s rock band dropped this low-stakes EP — five songs recorded quickly at Austin’s Hotel Saint Cecilia while the group was in town for the Austin City Limits festival — days before Thanksgiving as a token of gratitude to fans and a show of support for the victims of November’s terrorist attacks in Paris. It’s as unhinged as the band has sounded in years, from the fiery thrash metal on “Savior Breath” to the riffed-out alt-rock goodness of “Sean.” —ERB

Aubrie Sellers, “Light of Day”

Like her mother Lee Ann Womack, Sellers knows how to deliver a lyric in such a way that builds a whole universe. But the rest of her musical makeup seems to borrow from the traditions of other genres—specifically, the slinking roots of classic southern soul-rock. Her latest is about being stuck in a rut and seeing no way out. It’s no light tale to kick off your weekend, but a good old fashioned brooding session sure can feel nice. Sellers’ New City Blues is out in January, and selfishly we’re hoping she doesn’t cheer up before then. —Madison Vain

Daye Jack ft. Killer Mike, “Hands Up”

Hip-hop heads have become accustomed to hearing Killer Mike’s verses alongside El-P’s concussive beats — it’s a match made in heaven and a large reason why the pair has been so successful as Run the Jewels. But Mike had a long rap career before connecting with El-P, and “Hands Up,” his fresh track with fellow Atlantan Daye Jack, is a nice return to form. The warm cut addresses police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement, both topics Mike frequently emphasizes on and off stage. —ERB

Charlie Hilton ft. Mac DeMarco, “100 Million”

This week’s helping of slack-rock comes courtesy of Blouse’s Charlie Hilton, who’s releasing her solo album in January. Labelmate Mac DeMarco hops on the track, which is produced by Jarvis Taveniere of Woods. As unusually warm weather hits much of the country this weekend, “100 Million” feels a little like a final gasp of summer. —ERB

Lily & Madeleine, “Hourglass”

The little fuzzy moments in between waking and dreaming are always hazy and here, sister-duo Lily & Madeleine explore that state of mind. “Hourglass” is a musical dreamscape that begs, “Let me stay where I am,” and we couldn’t agree more. —MV
