Fall Festival Sampler
Just because summer stops doesn't mean the festival season is over. Fall is also home to some big music fetes, such as Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest, New Orleans' Voodoo Experience and Asheville, North Carolina's Moogfest. Can't make it to them? Let Google Play bring the fests to you with this eclectic playlist from festival artists.

Hip-hop offers two takes on unbridled fury: On "Big Beat," off the outstanding El-P-produced R.A.P. Music, Killer Mike teams up with Bun B and T.I. over a sinister bumping beat to welcome you to a gunfire-punctured Atlanta; on "Guillotine," Death Grips' MC Ride screams cryptic threats over paranoid synth-and-drums from producer Flatlander and Hella drummer Zach Hill.

Indie rock's well represented by both veterans and newcomers alike. Superchunk and Hüsker Dü/Sugar frontman Bob Mould both supply vintage tracks: the former's "The First Part" from their bitter and blistering 1994 album Foolish, and Mould's live version of Sugar's "If I Can't Change Your Mind." Meanwhile, Magnetic Fields' "Quick!" is one of the more sprightly indie pop numbers off latest album Love at the Bottom of the Sea.

The Head and the Heart's "Rivers and Roads" from their self-titled album and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros' "Child" off latest Here both tap into indie folk's potential for soft, slow-building sing-alongs. Elsewhere, Fang Island's "Sisterly," from the Brooklyn band's Major, spikes their indie rock with subtly sharp guitars, while Sweden's Miike Snow offer their brand of polished electropop.

Finally, there's The Pimps of Joytime, a band whose upbeat funk number "Street Sounds" from their album High Steppin' is every bit the roguish-but-luxuriant, loose-limbed fun the name suggests.
