“If the music keeps me in the intensity of the game without distracting me — then it’s a winner. It’s a double winner if the track serves as a much needed refresher to a game’s mediocre soundtrack. Games with little or no music? I just have fun overdubbing with these favorites listed below. It’s a great way to change up the experience and make it your own.” – Naomi

Featuring: deadmua5, Ke$ha, Drake

The young brothers have made a similar impression on the rest of the industry, drawing critical acclaim and even catapulting “Latch” collaborator Sam Smith to notoriety.

Bear Hands, the indie-rock quartet from Brooklyn, made a quick detour on its way to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival to make an appearance at San Francisco’s LIVE 105 radio station on Thursday to perform a special Music Unlimited Live Lounge session.

The up-and-coming group performed three songs – “Giants,” “Sleeping on the Floor” and “Vile Iowa”– from its second full-length album, Distraction. The 11-track album, which is now available on Music Unlimited, took four years to make and was produced by the band’s guitarist Ted Feldman and mixed by James Brown (Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails).

And don’t worry if you’re not going to make it out to the desert this weekend. Bear Hands is also on the bill for the Lollapalooza and Outside Lands music festivals this summer.

ZZ Ward has made a strong impression on the music scene throughout her career. Her style of “dirty shine” blues breaks the mold of what you might expect from the 27-year-old singer/songwriter. It’s a sound that has found favor across genres, all the way to “Cryin’ Wolf” collaborator Kendrick Lamar. That song is on her 2012 debut album, Til the Casket Drops, which earned her slots on late night TV and use on shows like Pretty Little Liars.

Her “Last Love Tour” wraps up its western leg with her Friday set at both weekends of Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival. She then picks up at the end of the month in Tennessee supporting Eric Clapton, stopping later at Bonnaroo and Summerfest, among others.

Of the tracks she sent for her artist playlist, ZZ describes them as “songs for when that certain someone has done you wrong,” kicking off perfectly with her own, “Last Love Song.” Check out the rest below.

ZZ Ward “Last Love Song” Playlist

  1. ZZ Ward – “Last Love Song”
  2. Howlin’ Wolf – “Killing Floor”
  3. Kelis – “Caught Out There”
  4. Robert Johnson – “I Believe I´ll Dust My Broom”
  5. Smiley Lewis – “I Hear You Knocking”
  6. Justin Timberlake – “What Goes Around…/…Comes Around Interlude”
  7. Nancy Sinatra – “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’”
  8. Tampa Red – “Don’t You Lie To Me”
  9. Eminem – “’97 Bonnie & Clyde”
