Free Music: Slash, Pink Floyd & Jeff Tweedy's Teenage Son

Slash: “You’re a Lie”
You know what’s not a lie? That this song is meh. And this is coming from a fan of Velvet Revolver. Let's blame Myles Kennedy.

Pink Floyd: “Young Lust (Demo)”
To entice you into buying the seven-disc box set of The Wall, Pink Floyd are streaming an early take of this classic track. Instead of the hard-rocking album version, this demo brings out an almost Southern rock-styled funk. [Rolling Stone]

s / s / s: “Museum Day”
Triple S! Sufjan Stevens is collaborating on an upcoming EP with Chicago rapper Serengeti and indie band Son Lux. That explains the name “s / s / s,” but not why Sufjan’s singing is Auto-Tuned.

Super Morrissey Bros.: “This Charming Man”
I dare you to listen to this Chiptune cover of the Smiths classic (made with vintage sounds from the first Mario NES game) and not smile.

Spencer Tweedy: “Rushmore”
Jeff Tweedy’s 16-year-old son has a jangly little pop song that sounds like Summerteeth-era Wilco as sung by a Mouseketeer. In a good way! [Stereogum]

Nneka ft. Black Thought: “God Knows Why”
Nneka’s sophisticated soul/hip-hop gets a sick beat and an assist from the Roots’ Black Thought on this track from her latest album.
