The Playlist: Iggy and the Stooges / Childhood / Ty Segall
Iggy and the Stooges
A typically aggressive rocker from the resurgent band's new LP 'Ready to Die'. Debuted live on 'The Colbert Report' last week.

Music for a Film 1
An instrumental cut that, as yet, isn't actually scheduled to appear on a film soundtrack. It is, however, the latest instalment of the Less Artists More Condos charity single series.
Gorgeous, percussion and vocal-led pop from Northern Ireland. One to watch.
The Fat Cat Records-signed art rocker is moving deeper into the realms of Kurt Vile-esque indie rock.
Debuted at Penn State last weekend, this track was one of several brand-new songs by the band that were caught on film and uploaded to YouTube.
A wonderfully surreal video was released for this new single last week.
