Welcome to Under the Radar's weekly playlist, where we compile the best and most exciting tracks to debut online in the last week (give or take). Because it's a short work week and a holiday weekend, less new tracks of note debuted this week.

Included are songs by Wye Oak, Wunder Wunder, Ashrae Fax, Titus Andronicus, The Rosebuds, Ice Cream Cathedral, Ought, Childhood, Slow Club, Boxed In, Coldplay remixed by AlunaGeorge, Anand Wilder (of Yeasyer), and more.
