  • Toro Y Moi, a.k.a. Chaz Bundwick, has shared a new, digital "tour only" track called "Campo." It's laid back and soulful like most of Bundwick's previous material. The track will be available at his shows this fall and, luckily, he will be performing in Seattle at Showbox at The Market on November 12. [Stereogum]

  • In honor of the recently released The Clash boombox reissue set, Google Play has created their own "Audio Ammunition" documentary. The documentary features unseen interviews of Joe Strummer and company, as well as, covers of classic Clash songs by some well known talent. Kurt Vile and the Violators decided to cover "Guns of Brixton," which you can listen to below. Watch the full documentary here. [CoS]

  • Montreal producer, Jacques Greene, decided to put his spin on Autre Ne Veut's sparkling track "Play by Play." Greene maked it his own, but was still careful not to over mix the song. The remix is out now from Software/Mexican Summer. [Stereogum]

  • It's been about a week since Hesitation Marks dropped, and now Nine Inch Nails have released a brand new EP, Nine Inch Nails: Live 2013. One song ("Copy of A") was recorded during their performance at Japan's Fuji Rock Festival and the other three ("Came Back Haunted" "Sanctified" and "Find My Way") are from Lollapalooza. You can listen to the entire EP at Spotify. [Pitchfork]

  • Janelle Monáe really knows how to put on a show. While appearing on Late Show with David Letterman, to promote her new album The Electric Lady (out today), Monáe served up a captivating performance of her hit song "Dance Apocalyptic." She was so hyped that she ended up dancing on Letterman's desk and throwing the mic stand. [CoS]
