Fresh Cut Fridays is all about new stuff we like or old stuff we think never got enough attention.

A good summer driving with the top down track.

For the holidays...
Seaside or fireside it works either way.
The choras is the hook that's hard to resist.
Another monster hit from Em, just released and about to blow up and cross over. The Eminem/Rihanna combo proves to be a potent formula once again.
One of the best voices in music today. Haunting and pop at the same time. Just in time for your pop Halloween mix.
They made a splash at SXSW this year and may be popping up on your ALT radar.
This is the breakout crossover hit of the summer. We don't know if Lorde will have staying power but this song will make a run on the charts.

An instant classic for the 2013 graduating class.  They will still put this song on 20 years from now.

This is nice track that has been reworked for the Ivan and Alyosho's new album release and we expect to hear much more from them in 2013.

This one has a little bit of that alternative 80s influence.  Nice that The Strokes are just doing their thing and not emulating some other trending style.

Did I make money? Was I proud? Did I play my songs too loud? Did I leave my life to chance or did I make you f*#&#ing dance?  We have a feeling that Robert will make some people dance with this one.

Lonely Island strikes again. Hard to top previous releases but a nice effort. "Two words about furniture, killing machines".

'No Church in the Wild' was filmed live in a church in Nancy during Electric Empire's recent tour of France. To find out more about the band check out this short behind the scenes video from their latest EP CHANGIN'.

Off the new release from Shiny Toy Guns.  This is a cool little track that instantly grabs you with the 808 clap and mesmorising keyboard lick and vocals.  A great addtion to your Fall roadtrip music.

This is prime season for bad lip reading videos with the election and all.  However, they really nailed it with this musical version using Coldplay as the muse.

Foreign Resort has been working on this song for several years and we think 2012 is the best version yet. Could easily be a Killers song. Nonetheless, we hope this band continues to evolve and find its groove.

Great stuff from The Helio Sequence of their new release. The entire album is definitely worth a listen. Support the band here.
