Snoop Lion – “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” ft. Miley Cyrus {Pop}

Listening to this track for the first time felt more like having a front row seat at a circus performance, but what do you expect from the spawn of Billy Ray Cyrus? The track is off Snoopy boy’s new reggae album Reincarnated (because you know, he’s a reincarnation of Bob Marley now).

Queens of the Stone Age – “My God is the Sun” {Alternative Rock}

While we patiently wait for the new QOTSA album to drop, mainman Josh Homme posted the album’s first single yesterday…and it’s AWESOME. The track sounds very “Songs for the Deaf”-ish; perhaps this new album will be better than Era Vulgaris? A QOTSA fan can only hope…

Bass Drum of Death –  ”Shattered Me” {Garage Rock}

Mississippi’s garage rockers Bass Drum of Death are back with this brand new tune, which definitely has some mean Ramones vibes going on. This is the first official single off the group’s forthcoming self-titled album which is being released on June 25th.

Deerhunter – “Monomania” {Psych Rock}

Deerhunter have a knack for rocking people’s socks off (and if you haven’t heard their tunes before I highly suggest you start here). Drenched in feedback and lo-fi vocals, “Monomania” is the first official single off their new album of the same title, which is being released on May 6th.

Joey Bada$$ – “Day in the Life” {Rap/Hip Hop} + Free download

Produced by none other than the famed hip hop producer Harry Fraud, this track is off the Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg’s new mixtape New York Renaissance, which also features a ton of New York City’s hottest underground MCs and producers like Action Bronson and World Fair.

Beady Eye – “Flick of the Finger” {Alternative Rock}

It’s kind of strange that Beady Eye debuted this new tune when they haven’t even named their forthcoming album, but we’ll take whatever we can get at this point. The album was produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, and is set to be released sometime this year.

Cove – “Health” {Electronic/Experimental} + Free download

Ireland’s been busting at the seams with some pretty wicked up-and-coming electronic groups, and Cove is no exception. The trio only just formed in the past few months, and they’ve already released their debut five-track EP (which you can purchase as a name-your-price download here).
