The Playlist: Godspeed You! Black Emperor / Jack White / MGMT
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
We Drift Like Worried Fire
The Montreal-based band have just announced a worldwide tour in support of their excellent new album, 'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!'. This track is a highlight of that album.
Coal Miner's Daughter
The ex-White Stripes frontman tore into this cover of Loretta Lynn's 1970 hit at one of Record Store Day's 'open recording' sessions.
This new single, another Record Store Day-affiliated release, continues MGMT's exploration of complex, synth-led neo-prog. 'Time to Pretend' now feels further away than ever.
Dis Ain't What U Want
Durk (pictured) has followed fellow Chicago rapper Chief Keef's lead by developing his uncompromising hip-hop without releasing an overtly commercial track. Authenticity is having a real resurgence in rap.
Guided By Voices
As Pitchfork pointed out, this lead single from the band's brand new LP, 'English Little League', sounds like a song packed with choruses. An unbelievably catchy release.
A Dancing Shell
This first single from the band's forthcoming seven-track EP, 'Empty Estate', is a stripped-down, chilled-out affair.
