I'm staring very deeply into your soul right now, and I can tell you need some new music to enjoy. There, there. That's what this post is about. Here are this week's five best songs.

The New Pornographers, "Brill Bruisers"

The New Pornographers - Brill Bruisers

"Exploding out from a shimmering nucleus of magical mystery gibberish, "Bruisers" has that sprawling, blinkered ecstasy of a rock opera."

Operators, "True"

"Set the dancey, weekend minded song as your alarm."

Blonde Redhead, "No More Honey"

Blonde Redhead - No More Honey (Audio)

"Swooning but in a concussed sort of way, the new Blonde Redhead track "No More Honey" finds the group moving away from the laptop programming influence that dominated 2010's Penny Sparkle."

Death Grips, "Up My Sleeves"

"[Taken from] The new project pulled from the amorphous, screaming hip-hop foundry featuring Björk on all eight tracks."

Popcaan, "Evil"

Popcaan - Evil (Produced by Dubbel Dutch) - OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO

"Since his former mentor Vybz Kartel joined #TeamLightSkin and got locked up, Popcaan's become dancehall's best hope for a party-centric yet socially-conscious global takeover."
