Antenna Sampler
Google Play's monthly sampler is back with more new hip-hop, indie, electronic, country and Latin pop.

First up, Danish punk upstarts Iceage lead off their sophomore album You're Nothing with a typically blunt 2-minute blast of raucous, blind-flailing fury on "Coalition." Across the North Sea, UK act The Virginmarys play melodic and emotive alternative rock on "Just a Ride."

Pistol Annies gunslinger Ashley Monroe showcases a twangy quaver beyond her years on "You Got Me," a nice contrast to the song's pristine string sections, while Portland band Y La Bamba do a noirish take on indie folk and alt-country with the shuffling and howling "Death on the Road."

Problem and Bad Lucc's "Like Whaaat" is a bass-bombing ride along a slippery, sliding sci-fi G-funk synth lead, the rapping sharp and fierce despite the medicated vibes suggested by boasts of taking "MDMA by the bag" (and the unsubtle "Welcome to Mollywood" mixtape title). On the flipside, NYC native Yonas' "Temptation" features fast-rapping verses that nimbly swerve around life's perceived pitfalls, all over rising guitars building to Lucian Walker’s half-time sung verse.

LA duo Raul y Mexia are the literal heirs of norteño legends Los Tigres del Norte—the brothers are sons of bassist Hernán Hernández—but their upbeat "Las Escondidas" embraces cumbia and EDM sounds as easily as it skews a traditional accordion sample.

UK electronic duo Gorgon City produce sleek, sexy bass music with one foot in dubstep and one in deep house on "Athena.” Finally, Atlanta-London duo Lady put a more retro spin on the genre with "Money."
