This Week’s 5 Best Songs: A Tribe Called Red, BADBADNOTGOOD and more…

We're thankful for songs about death, circles, and how gross Thanksgiving is.

- Nov 28, 2014
Rounding out this week's 5 best songs: a more accurate view of American Thanksgiving and jazz from another dimension.

A Tribe Called Red, "Burn Your Village To The Ground"

"...there's little ambiguity on the aggressive electronic bounce of "Burn Your Village." It's a slamming conduit for righteous indignation, articulated by the sample of Wednesday Addams's classic speech from Addams Family Values."

Matana Roberts, "always say your name / nema, nema, nema"

"Its discordance harmonizes with your own inner tumult, and offers crashing waves of saxophone noise and wobbling pedals as a backdrop to Roberts' croaked parable."

Sun Kil Moon, "The Possum"

Sun Kil Moon - The Possum

"'The Possum' returns us to the ongoing open book of Kozelek, where a trip to a Godflesh show and the sight of a dying animal become resounding meditations of the end and what we do until we get there."

Future Islands, "Seasons (Waiting On You)" (BADBADNOTGOOD Reinterpretation)

Future Islands - Seasons (Waiting On You) (BADBADNOTGOOD Reinterpretation)

"...the cool on their remix of Future Island's breakout track is more of a buttoned down and dark shades affair than the skeleton cowboy murder tunes they've been putting out."

Egyptrixx, "Transfer Of Energy [Feelings Of Power]"

"In preparation for his new self-released album, Egyptrixx's new song takes us on a tour of an abandoned prison planet. "Transfer" is a captivatingly transient take on the sounds of grime's new wave. "
