Do you have a desire for this week's best songs? Is there a craving running up your spine, down through your ribs, and across your left thigh via the Siamese twin embedded in your right calf? We've got the tunes to keep both you and Lil' Ned happy.

White Lung, "Down With The Monster"

White Lung - Drown With The Monster (Official Video)

"It’s a song about my two biggest vices, but I’d rather drown with the monster than blow dry my wounds.” - Mish Way, White Lung vocalist

How To Dress Well, "Words I Don't Remember"

How To Dress Well - Words I Don't Remember

"...this is a true love stump speech, as soulful and direct as something so strange as love can be..."

Phoenix, "SOS In Bel Air (Ariel Pink's Krystal Bamboo remix)"

"Get ready for your soul’s passport to get stamped at the Land of Milk and Honey’s immigration terminal. Visa expiration date: never."

Mac DeMarco, "Brother"

"The hook 'Take it slowly, brother / let it go now brother' would be condescending in lesser hands, but Mac persists, bringing Donnie & Joe Emerson’s low-tide rock with its glassy guitar lines and two-steps-from-being-a-cult daze."

Sharon Van Etten, "Taking Chances"

"Sweetly honking organs and distant, snarling distortion congregate at tortoise speed, and there’s even a slouch to Sharon’s voice that aligns nicely, and sadly, with the tedium in the lyrics."
