This week, Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant and LCD Soundsystem both released new singles, and Grizzly Bear put out one of the year’s best albums.


Grizzly Bear — “Aquarian”

Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen sings ominously of “great disaster” amid a tempestuous swirl of electric guitars on “Aquarian,” a highlight from the indie-rock band’s masterful new LP, “Painted Ruins.”


LCD Soundsystem — “tonite”

LCD Soundsystem singer James Murphy paces and rant-sings through a vocoder about the state of the music industry in the video for “tonite,” an ’80s-inspired synth anthem from the group’s upcoming album, “American Dream.”


KMD — “True Lightyears” (feat. DOOM and Jay Electronica)

DOOM and Jay Electronica, hip hop’s two most notoriously reclusive geniuses, team on “True Lightyears,” an Adult Swim-released single from DOOM’s forthcoming album with his original rap group, KMD.


Lee Ann Womack — “All The Trouble”

Lee Ann Womack’s new single “All The Trouble” finds the country singer channeling blues and soul traditions with sharp instrumentation and a lamenting, vibrato chorus.


Robert Plant — “The May Queen”

Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant announced his upcoming 11th solo album, “Carry Fire,” this week by releasing “The May Queen,” a lively new single enveloped in layers of sitar string work.
