With Daft Punk's new album, Random Access Memories, set to drop this week (it's already streaming on iTunes), we know many fans are eagerly awaiting the band's latest effort. Actually, let's be real: this is arguably the most anticipated album of the year so far. It officially arrives on May 21 via Columbia/Daft Life Limited.
With Vampire Weekend's new album, Modern Vampires of the City, set to drop this week (it's already streaming on iTunes), we know many fans are anxiously awaiting the band's latest effort. The band, which has been making the promotional rounds as of late, is also slated to perform on the much-hyped May 11 episode of Saturday Night Live, with former longtime cast member Kristen Wiig as host.

It's that time again. As the weather heats up—and so does the music, some songs will stand out above others. From heavy hitters to pop shop singers to indie stars to fresh-faced up-and-comers, you never know who will rise to the top.
