This week, Avicii collaborated with English electronic duo AlunaGeorge on a new track, and The National dropped a contemplative new single.
Here are the 5 best songs from the past week that you can stream right now:
The National — “Carin at the Liquor Store”
Indie rock band The National brings anguish, introspection, and a wailing guitar solo to its piano-ballad single “Carin at the Liquor Store” — the third release from its upcoming album, “Sleep Well Beast.”
Cut Copy — “Standing In The Middle Of The Field”
Leading up to its fifth LP, “Haiku from Zero,” Australian electro-rock band Cut Copy lights up its latest single, “Standing In The Middle Of The Field,” with a panorama of ebullient synths and a stellar chorus.
Destroyer — “Sky’s Grey”
Destroyer — the Canadian rock band led by eccentric songwriter Dan Bejar — returns with the minimalist “Sky’s Grey,” a showcase for Bejar’s humorously cryptic and poetic meditations, sung from the perspective of a foundering actor.
Photay — “Screens”
“Screens” is the dynamic intro track to New York producer Photay’s singular new album, “Onism.” The song fuses robotic sounds with a propulsive, lively, and unpredictable synth beat.
Avicii — “What Would I Change It To” (feat. AlunaGeorge)
