Another week in free music, one day late because some of us were at Governor’s Ball seeing Fiona Apple (and some other people). This week we welcomed back Cat Power, Yeasayer, and jj, who all gave us some free new music for the first time in a while. Purity Ring continued their streak of never putting out anything bad, and Wiz Khalifa and 50 Cent make a surprisingly good duo on their latest effort. Here you go, 10 free songs.

jj – “10”
Off of jj’s latest EP, High Summer, comes “10.” If “Shawty Is Da Shit” was written by two mysterious Swedes with a knack for dreamy pop, it would sound like this.
Coco Morier – “Shameless”
Coco Morier does the Ingrid Label proud with her latest EP, Strangers May Kiss, and P&P’s got the exclusive download for “Shameless.”
Kids These Days – “Flashing Lights”
You must respect individuals who dare to cover Kanye, because for many people, Kanye is unfuckwithable. But here’s Kids These Days’ take on ‘Ye’s “Flashing Lights.”
Yeasayer – “Longevity”
There is a lot going on in “Longevity,” the new track from psych-pop outfit Yeasayer. It borders on chaotic, but ultimately comes together for a cohesive and surprisingly catchy record.
RL Grime and Salva may have taken the raps out of “Mercy,” but their remix blows it up to monstrous proportions to make up for it. Download it here.
Santigold – “The Keepers (The Knocks Remix)”
The Knocks take Santigold’s “The Keepers,” off of her most recent LP, Master of My Make Believe to whip up a smooth, upbeat mix. Shout out to MJF for this find.
Purity Ring – “Fineshrine”
Purity Ring keeps it moving with another great song. If you’re keeping track of how many not-so-great songs they’ve released so far, it’s 0. We imagine that “Fineshrine” is what a lollipop laced with razorblades would sound like.
Wiz Khalifa ft. 50 Cent – “Telescope”
50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa over some Harry Fraud production. If you’re skeptical of this collabo, give it a listen—you may be surprised.

Cat Power – “Ruin”
Cat Power’s newest track is a piano-driven gem which will appear on her forthcoming album, Sun. Power revealed in an interview that Sun is one that she’s very proud of, so give “Ruin” a listen and look out for more new music soon.
Madeaux’s “Celestina” Mix for P&P
Madeaux’s latest mix—this time, specifically hand-crafted for P&P—features a cornucopia of genres and textures for a wonderfully gluttonous mix.
