The Best Songs You Missed Last Week: The xx, Betty Who, More

If you were too busy mourning the death of our country, you probably missed some of the best songs that came out last week. Not to worry—we’re here to catch you quicker than ever. This week we’re featuring new tracks from The xx, Betty Who, The Regrettes, Sleigh Bells and Childish Gambino.

The xx


If there was a song we needed this past week, it was probably this one. It’s melancholy downtempo beat is enough to make you want to dance and cry at the same time.

Betty Who

Betty Who is back with a sexy new single that’s less bubbly than the music from her debut album. It’s a bit unexpected, but really lovely.

The Regrettes

Feminist grunge rockers The Regrettes responded to the results of the presidential election in “Seashore.” If you’re feeling angry, listen to this track.

Sleigh Bells

Sleigh Bells are back with a cleaner, poppier sound. However, their music still makes you want to smash things against the wall, so you won’t be disappointed.

Childish Gambino

It looks like we’re going to be getting that Donald Glover album a lot sooner than expected. “Me and Your Mama” is an ethereal track that feels quite spiritual. Then a guitar solo hits and Glover’s voice just blows your mind.
