While this weeks’ new album releases weren’t anything to get excited about, the new tracks keep pouring in. Not only do we have a long-awaited return track from locals Drug Rug, which could very well be put on repeat 10 times for your weekly playlist, but check out Active Child taking on Tupac, a trill new jam from rap newcomers Migos, and a heartfelt tribute to Paul Walker from a Wu-Tang legend.

1. Drug Rug – “Crazy See”
The Cambridge duo releases its first material since 2009’s “Paint The Fence Invisible,” in preparation for a new album, “Isle of View.” The tune sticks with the vibrant psychedelia of previous recordings, but this time, it seems Drug Rug is ditching grittier early Dr. Dog sounds for more atmospheric, patient jams similar to pals QUILT. Needless to say, it’s awesome, much like anything this band puts out. Good to have Drug Rug back.

2. RZA (feat. Will Wells) – “Destiny Bends”
Wu-Tang’s RZA gets emotional for a hot second to honor his friend Paul Walker, who died in a car crash over the weekend. RZA doesn’t rap or sing on the track. Instead, he wrote and produced the song, while leaving the singing up to Berklee grad Will Wells.

3. Sides of Chaz – “Sweet Tea”
Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick channels the Flaming Lips hard on this track released under the moniker Sides of Chaz. For such a lighthearted psych-funk tune, Bundick gets strangely personal, but it ends up working in a brightly nostalgic way.

4. Active Child – “Takes Me Back (Until The End Of Time)”
Electronic solo man Active Child samples Tupac’s “Until the End of Time” in perhaps the best way possible. His gentle falsetto over such a hard beat ends up sounding like a romantic Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.

5. Guided By Voices – “Littlest League Possible”
GBV doesn’t really miss a step on this track, which will be the first on the band’s upcoming album “Motivational Jumpsuit,” due out in February. It clocks in at just under a minute and a half, it has a heavy guitar sound, and it’s balanced out by the unconcerned vocal style of Robert Pollard.

6. Migos (prod. by Murda) – “Brokanese”
Atlanta rap duo Migos has been growing since its killer mixtape “Y.R.N.” was released earlier this year. “Brokanese” is ridiculous, but ridiculously catchy. It will appear on the band’s follow-up, “Y.R.N. 2,” coming soon.

7. Whatever, Dad – “100% Take Home”
Whatever, Dad, the angsty and sweet lo-fi folk project of New York-based Elaiza Santos channels fragile-voiced contemporaries like Waxahatchee, Frankie Cosmos, and Palehound in her latest album of the same name.

8. CON VOS – “Coast”
New York based trio CON VOS is notable for mixing elements of indie electro-pop and inserting hip hop verses in. It seems gimmicky on paper, but it ends up working rather well, especially in this jam from the band’s upcoming debut EP, due out early next year. It sounds like something from the “Drive” soundtrack.
