The Playlist: Grizzly Bear / Elliott Smith / Wavves / Bob Mould / My Morning Jacket / John Cale / King Dude
Grizzly Bear - Yet Again
The second single from Grizzly Bear's forthcoming fourth album, 'Shields'. Ed Droste croons his way through this smart, understated track.
Elliott Smith - Alameda (Alternate Version)
Smith's (above) former label Kill Rock Stars is releasing a selection of rare, unreleased tracks to mark what would have been his 43rd birthday. "Alameda", recorded during the 'Either/Or' sessions, is our first taste.
Wavves - Hippies Is Punks
Nathan Williams returns to snotty grunge punk for this 'Adult Swim Singles Series' track after dabbling with instrumental electronica on his Sweet Valley project.
Bob Mould - The Descent
The former Husker Dü member continues to produce the kind of vivacious pop punk that Green Day built their career on.
My Morning Jacket - Outta My System (Washed Out Remix)
Washed Out add their blissful fuzz-pop to My Morning Jacket's forthcoming EP of friends' remixes of their single.
John Cale - I Wanna Talk 2 U
Kooky but surprisingly unabrasive indie pop from the former Velvet Underground cellist.
King Dude - Jesus in the Courtyard
Doom-laden country blues packed with disorientating guitar effects and foreboding vocals.
