cassettes Top 10 MP3s of the Week (7/26)

Lots of emotional pits and valleys on this week’s countdown, from star-studded collaborations (Elvis Costello & the Roots) to songs about divorce (Sebadoh) and odes to the awkwardness of puberty (FIDLAR). Dance, laugh, shed a tear. This one goes everywhere.
