The Playlist: Frank Ocean / Katy B ft. Jessie Ware / Sufjan Stevens / Phosphorescent / Depeche Mode / Wimps / Metz
Fake Plastic Trees
The Odd Future man delivers a warm, atmospheric version of Radiohead's melancholic hit. Ocean's trademark croon hits all the right notes.
Katy B ft. Jessie Ware
Part-homage to the late R&B star, part dissection of the artists' own semi-obsessive talent-envy. A smart and interesting tribute featuring Jessie Ware.
Chopped and Scrooged
The indie icon has gathered together a host of big names, including Das Racist and Kitty Pryde, to appear on this Christmas mixtape.
Song for Zula
Matthew Houck returns with more deliciously fragile pop. 'Pitchfork' called this song "stunning"; high praise for a high quality track.
Enjoy the Silence
This week the band announced their 13th studio album will be released in spring. Band members are comparing the LP to their 1990 'Violator' album.
Featuring members of Partman Parthorse and Meth Teeth, this Seattle trio make high-octane bubblegum punk.
Twenty two years after Nirvana left the label, Sub-Pop are still putting out excellent fuzzy punk tracks.
