While most of you are opening presents, clogging your arteries, and avoiding your in-laws, we've rounded up the new late-in-the-year tunes for your enjoyment. Though it's slim pickings the last week of December, we've got new tracks from Swedish dream-pop duo jj, Sky Ferreira and Ariel Pink, and UK bass music maestro Actress. Last it's a gorgeous cover of late-era Bob Dylan by My Brightest Diamond. See you in January!

"My Boyz"
Mysterious Swedish pop duo jj may have been quiet for some time, but this week they dropped a wintry new video featuring Joakim Benon, psychedelic visuals, and home movie footage. The production begins with the a title card saying, "This is not a commercial / This is not a single / This is not a cry for help." Make of that what you will.
Sky Ferreira and Ariel Pink
"My Molly"
Sky Ferreira is ending the year with a new collaboration with lo-fi pop impresario Ariel Pink. "My Molly" was originally a Pink track, but here, it's been re-recorded and produced by frequent Ferreira collaborator Justin Raisen. The new version features an industrial-leaning beat sung by the newly black-haired alt pop songstress.
Actress
"Grey Over Blue"
UK producer Actress is one of the most consistently interesting avant-garde electronic artists working today. His new single "Grey Over Blue" is a typically unnerving piece of work with bleak, cavernous production and an overarching sense of dread. Merry Christmas!

"Make You Feel My Love"
Singer/songwriter My Brightest Diamond's (a.k.a. Shara Worden) take on Bob Dylan's soulful 1997 track "Make You Feel My Love" is simply gorgeous. With spare piano, Warden brings new soulfulness to the Time Out Of Mind cut, while maintaining all the lovesick gravity of the original.
