Gossip: “Perfect World”
After a solo Beth Ditto EP detour, garage-pop revivalists Gossip are back with their fifth LP. This first single finds Ditto’s soulful belting paired with shimmering U2-esque guitars. Thank (or blame) producer Mark Ronson for the slick studio sheen. [Gossip]

One Little Plane ft. Colin Greenwood: “She Was Out In the Water”
This lovely tune from the Chicago folk songstress features Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood on bass, and it brings to mind Vampire Weekend channeling Donovan circa Sunshine Superman

Action Bronson & Party Supplies: Blue Chips
Action Bronson, the Queens gourmet chef turned flowmaster, has a free mixtape out now. Das Racist’s Kool A.D. and Roc Marciano make appearances while the strangely-named Party Supplies produces. Listen to it now and get excited about the fact that he’s part of the Shady 2.0 SXSW Showcase that you can stream on Fuse’s YouTube channel. [Stereogum

Rick Ross, Wale & Stalley: “Another Round (Remix)”
On Funkmaster Flex’s radio show last night, these three MCs premiered their Maybach Music remix of the 2011 collabo between Fat Joe and Chris Brown. It's slight, but fun.  [XXL]

Kindness: World, You Need A Change Of Mind
Funky, dark synth from a guy who calls himself "Kindness" and performs from beneath a mess of flowing feminine locks. You can stream his album online and check him out at SXSW as well. [Guardian]

Obie Trice: Watch the Chrome
We recently told you when the Eminem affiliate dropped his new song, and now we’re telling you his full mixtape is out. What you want to do with that knowledge, however, is entirely up to you (we suggest you download it). [XXL]
