In this edition: Prog rockers! Cartoon ladies! Hot rappers! And, um, Courtney Love!

Battles – “Atlas” (from Mirrored on Warp)
In which the quartet perform their neo-post-electro-prog-punk track (that sounds something like Helmet being remixed live by Aphex Twin over a Gary Glitter beat) in what appears to be a glass box floating through space

Mark Ronson – “Oh My God” (from Version on Columbia)
In which a young man develops an interest in a sexy young… cartoon. She’s not bad, she’s just drawn that way

Lil’ Wayne – Rap City Freestyle (performed live on BET’s Rap City, 4/20/07)
In which the Miami-via-New Orleans rapper takes a breather from guesting on every single track in the whole world to prove why he’s in demand, with an awe-inspiring off-the-cuff live performance over a syrupy reggae-inflected beat

Courtney Love – “Pacific Coast Highway” (live at Bush Hall, London, 7/9/07; from the forthcoming Nobody’s Daughter on Universal)
In which the often-troubled singer, currently on a “low-key” tour to familiarize her band with new songs, gives a London audience a glimmer of what was so compelling about her music ten years ago

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
