Weekly-ish, a pre-approved, snap-judged music guide based on our very scientific, non-subjective Yes/No rating system. There's really no debating this, come on, stop.

Y: The video for Sleater-Kinney's "A New Wave" features, me, Tina Belcher. So I have to love it. The group smartly collab'd with Bob's Burgers for a family jam session in this clip. Look at Gene getting his body roll on toward the end! [Billboard]

Y: Big Sean's "Research" is a real poppy, guilty pleasure record (featuring Ariana Grande) about a woman who stoops to analyzing hair strands and checking her man's G-mails. [YouTube]

Y: Stereogum is correct in describing Twin Shadow's "I'm Ready" as the perfect rom-com end-credits song. The sweeping melody and guitar solo needs some cheesy dialogue in front of it, like, "I never stopped loving you..." [Stereogum]

Y: Which Instagram filter is this: Valencia? Early Bird? The vibe of Toro Y Moi's "Empty Nesters" video is very California sunset road trip, and there's a scene where he races a grim reaper mask that turns out to be...him. It's fun. [Stereogum]

Y: Omarion's goofy pop-locking in this video for "Posed to Be" has me hooked, even though I'll only sing this song ironically. [Miss Info]

N: Dipset's new music is lacking the same oomph as their previous stuff. "Do Something" is like they're throwing a bunch of random phrases at a wall. [Complex]

Y: All the neon images and crayon effects in TCTS' "Coupe De Ville" video remind me of the opening credits to a '90s black sitcom. [Fader]

Y: Mack Wilds sounds cute and slightly tortured about a "fickle baby" in this Salaam Remi produced song "Girls Playin' Tricks." Puts me the mood for spring. [Miss Info]

Y: Lyfe Jennings was behind one of my favorite R&B jams ever, "Must Be Nice," before he went to prison. "Pretty Is" has a cool little melody and his gruff voice is intact. [This Is RnB]

N: Although Trey Songz's "Slow Motion" song and video are innately sexy, it looks just like every every other Trey Songz video featuring naked gyrating bodies. [Idolator]
