This week we have a selection from some old favorites, recent bands, and a new-ish act with an even newer name. To start, Norwegian alt-pop star Annie is back with a fantastic new track, as is TV on the Radio after a few years out of the spotlight. Then we have a new song from R29-fave HAIM, the latest from up-and-coming NYC rapper A$AP Ferg, and a moving, new tune from recently rechristened feminist pop act Dead Girlfriends. Enjoy!

Annie
"Invisible"
Annie is elusive. She has the tendency to disappear for years only to pop up again with a fantastic new single out of the blue. Case in point: "Invisible" sees her and longtime collaborator Richard X going for maximum pop bliss.
HAIM
"The Wire"
As we (not so) patiently await the full-length album from L.A. pop-rocker HAIM, new singles keep trickling in. "The Wire" may not be inspired by the David Simon's HBO drug drama masterpiece, but it is just as addicting.
A$AP Ferg
"Hood Pope"
As the newest star from NYC's A$AP Mob, Ferg has hit the right balance of woozy rhymes while taking on a harder edge than his more well-known mentor Rocky. "Hood Pope" sees the rapper meandering through a hazy beat with the aplomb of a veteran.

TV on the Radio
"Mercy"
TV on the Radio haven't released a new album since 2011's Nine Types Of Light, but here it is with a new track in the form of "Mercy." The song is a driving fast-tempo guitar track bit of a post-punk lean. Fans should be pleased.
"On Fraternity"
RIP Elite Gymnastics; long live Dead Girlfriends. James Brooks has retired his old moniker in favor of a more pop-oriented project Dead Girlfriends. Drawing from the philosophy of radical feminist Andrea Dworkin, his new EP is a remarkable piece of heartfelt, often beautifully meditative, pop tracks.
