The Rub, "April 2012 Mix"

If you'd like to turn your living room into a club later this evening, here's a free NSFW mix from DJ Eleven and DJ Ayres, two-thirds of dance floor wizards The Rub. Mostly new rap, all booty shakers, totally freee.


Santigold's "Big Mouth" Video and Free MP3

The excellent Santi White offers up a new single off her upcoming Master of My Make-Believe album (due out this spring) as both an Adult Swim-meets-"Da Dip"-style music video and a free MP3, the latter of which is available for the cost of an [accurate] email address at


Cut Copy – "Need You Now"

Cut Copy has always been good: the Melbourne group's second album in particular, 2008's In Ghost Colours, is full of dizzying, sad, and smart electro-pop, but they've just outdone themselves with "Need You Now," a soaring number with a long, LCD Soundsystem-like build-up, pretty melody, and memorable, sweet refrain. It's deeply '80s, and epic in the way this album's cover is epic. The album, Zonoscope, comes out February 8 on Modular. [Via]

Lykke Li – "I Follow Rivers"

Swedish indie pop delight Lykke Li has a new song out, taken from her forthcoming sophomore album Wounded Rhymes, which she's releasing on her own label, LL Recordings, on March 1.


Gorillaz, Andre 3000, and James Murphy, "DoYaThing"

Converse corralled Gorillaz, Andre 3000, and James Murphy onto a collaboration track for its 3 Artists, 1 Song project, and if you like the free MP3 you might also like their themed sneakers. Why not.


Lower Dens, "Brains"

I hate describing anything as "tear-jerking" or "entrancing" or "addictive" because, really, what do I know about what makes you cry or drives you to do something over and over again even though there are dishes in the sink? All I'll say is Lower Dens keeps making amazingly room-filling (to everyone), tear jerking (to me), pretty (duh) songs for us to first get used to, then probably require every morning. Here's their latest and it is for free.


Purity Ring – "Ungirthed"

Who is Purity Ring? Hard to say. Just try Googling "purity ring," and even "purity ring band" (same basic results, because there are purity rings for guys, too). But their track "Ungirthed," posted on Altered Zones today, is pretty awesome, if you like reverby lady-vocals set to cute synths and jagged dance beats. (I do.)


Way Yes, "Singing"

Good morning! Here's a lovely new song from Way Yes, an indie-pop band from Columbus, Ohio, whose debut album, Walkability, is due out March 23. (And here's where to Officially Like them and their album art.)

Stereogum has this and two other free Way Yes MP3s, if you'd like.


Jackie Chain f. Freddie Gibbs & Maggie Horn, “Night Is Young”

Too many of our favorite things are in the new, NSFW, poppy Jackie Chain track, "Night Is Young": Freddie Gibbs, Maggie Horn, computer love, a hook with a time of day in it. Get it for free over at The FADER!


Timbaland Feat. Missy Elliott – "Take Ur Clothes Off"

Here's the first installment of Timbaland's new-music "Timbaland Thursdays." (And here's a link to the free MP3, if you want.) Do you like it? It's … OK! It's fine.
