Aaliyah - "Enough Said"

The Fader can explain the details behind this posthumous Aaliyah album. Me? I'm just going to enjoy the sound of the late R&B legend plopped into Noah "40" Shebib's atmospheric production work, punctuated by Drake adlibs. The new LP is supposed to be out before the end of 2012.

 

Muse -"The Second Law - Unsustainable"

It would be one thing if Muse grafted dubstep bass drops into their signature hyped-up prog circus, but it's another thing entirely to see them go all-in on the EDM revolution. At least nobody will compare them to Radiohead ever again. Speaking of which...

 

Radiohead - "The Daily Mail"

The studio version of this one has been floating around since last year, but now that Noisey put together this cool clip from Bonnaroo footage, it seems worthy of your renewed attention.

 

Mumford & Sons - "I Will Wait"

Welp, sounds like Mumford & Sons. There's a good chance you'll hear this at Mumford's mega-sold out show Tuesday at LC Pavilion's festival setting. "Babel" is out Sept. 25 on Glassnote Records.

 

Wavves - "Hippies Is Punks"

Forget beat tapes; scrappy, saccharine slacker rock is what Wavves does best. Nathan Williams' latest slab of pop-punk comes from the Adult Swim Singles Series.

 

Field Report - "Chico the American"

This beauty of a song was recommended by Donewaiting's Joel Oliphint. Wow, what a beautiful ballad. Field Report's self-titled album comes out Sept. 11 on Partisan Records.

 

Rage Peace (Prince Rama) - "So Destroyed"

Really intriguing concept behind the new Prince Rama album: They're "channeling" the top 10 hits from the eve of the apocalypse, inhabiting 10 separate personas including this guise as Rage Peace. Top 10 Hits Of The End Of The World drops Nov. 6 via Paw Tracks.

 

Thee Oh Sees - "Flood's New Light"

John Dwyer never sleeps, and neither do those who desperately try to keep up with his output. But who needs sleep when songs like "Flood's New Light" just make you want to dance? "Putrifiers II" is out Sept. 11 via In the Red.

 

Big Boi featuring Little Dragon - "Mama Told Me"

Daddy Fat Sacks stopped by Little Dragon's set at a "vitaminwater uncapped" event in Austin to perform a track from his upcoming "Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors." The album, including this little slice of Dragon funk, drops Nov. 13.

 

Petite Noir - "Till We Ghosts"
