Rage Against the Machine Killing In The Name
A campaign has kicked off to take on the "X Factor" Christmas single with this 1990s classic. We support the cause. It brings out the angry teenager in us all.
The art-rockers' intense new single starts quiet and then gets very loud. Either way, it's pretty good.
Lightspeed Champion Marlene
The first single from Dev Hynes's new album packs a punch with dramatic strings and 1970s guitar pop.
Nite Funk Am I Gonna Make It
Producer Dam-Funk and singer Nite Jewel get together for a sleek synth-funk trip back to the 1980s.
Laura Marling Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)
Marling's new song with smart lyrics over a spare guitar proves the "new folk" scene has still got legs.
Fucked Up Do They Know It's Christmas?
The Canadian punks take a charitable swipe at the Christmas favourite with the help of an all-star indie cast including GZA, Yo La Tengo, and David Cross.
