This week we recommend some unlikely collaborations and an overlooked recent gem for downloading (legally, of course) or streaming to you iPod, iPad, iPhone or other personal media device.

"Golden State" by Eddie Vedder and Natalie Maines

Vedder will pick up a guitar or ukulele for any good cause. But in the past few years, he’s had a particular fervor for The West Memphis Three – Three teenage boys who many feel were wrongly convicted of killing three young boys. Vedder and a large handful of other celebrities and legal-aid volunteers worked to shed light on the case. Recently all three were released after 18 years in prison. A new documentary about the case is on the way. This song is taken from a WM3 rally and it’s really nice to hear The Dixie Chick, Natalie Maines – especially trading lyrics with Vedder who constantly proves all he needs is a stringed instrument, a microphone and a stage. Both of these artists will have songs on the new movie’s soundtrack.

"Meet Me on the Corner" by Red Hot Chili Peppers

British super-producer Nigel Godrich has run the boards for the biggest acts in rock – Paul McCartney, U2, R.E.M., Radiohead just to name a few. Now he has a badass basement and invites his friends over to jam in it. This song is one song from an extended RHCP’s session. Originally on the 2011 album, “I’m with You,” there’s a cozy feel to this track. New guitarist Josh Klinghoffer harmonizes in a falsetto. Flea and Chad Smith are the tightest rhythm section in rock. And Anthony Kiedis’ voice has become an open wound.

"Unchained (The Payback/Untouchable),” by James Brown and 2Pac

This track is from Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” soundtrack, which was snubbed at the announcement of Oscar nominations – Not one nod, a shame because this soundtrack is badass. And this track is a perfect example. It mixes in Tarantino trademarks – big horns, spoken lines from the movie, Brown’s iconic screams and 2Pac rising from the dead one more time to rip it up lyrically. Tarantino loves to resurrect careers and stir shit up – could there be a couple of holograms storming the stage at the Oscars?
