Perry Farrell returns with "Pirate Punk Politician" - his first new solo music since 2001 - and it's weird. I'm on record saying the tour of the year is Beck, Cage The Elephant, and Spoon. The trifecta plays with Wild Belle at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island on July 31. To really emphasize that this a "tour de force", Cage The Elephant and Beck recorded a very groovy track called "Night Running". A few other faves are Tame Impala "Patience" and a collaboration between Yeah Yeah Yeah's Karen O and producer Danger Mouse called "Turn The Light". Check out the entire playlist below.
