Giving her yodel-yelps and tongue-twisting lyrics a rest, ALANIS MORISSETTE delivers her strongest chart contender in years: a hushed live version of ”Excuses,” from her latest, So-Called Chaos. REAL.COM/RHAPSODY

Mix emo-core howler Daryl Palumbo of Glassjaw with Gorillaz’ Dan the Automator and you get electro-rock act HEAD AUTOMATICA. Sample their rollicking debut with ”Brooklyn is Burning.” HEADAUTOMATICA.COM

ANGIE STONE returns with a sultry summer treat, ”I Wanna Thank Ya.” The hypnotic, hip-swaying disco-soul single also features a memorable guest spot by the indelible Snoop D-O-Double-Gizzle. ITUNES.COM

QUINCY JONES’ long-lost ”Groovy Gravy” was intended for Bill Cosby’s eponymous ’60s sitcom. But the superfly jazz-funk cut will finally have its day on the upcoming ”Original Jam Sessions 1969.” ITUNES.COM
