March is over, bringing us that much closer to the end of the world. But hey, if the world is going to end this year, you might as well check out some cool tunes on your way out the door. Here is Fresh Wet Paint’s Best of March playlist, in no particular order:

Michael Kiwanuka - Home Again 

Genre: Soul
Why it rules: Kiwanuka is, simply put, the best singer-songwriter there is right now.

Good Old War - Can’t Go Home

Genre: Folk
Why it rules:  Good Old War takes the often-repetitive and droll indie-folk sound and turns it into something that is anything but.

Alex Winston - Velvet Elvis 

Genre: Indie Pop
Why it rules: Highlights Winston’s great production, catchy melodies and expert use of the pentatonic scale.

s / s / s – Museum Day

Genre: Hip-Hop
Why it rules: Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux and Serengeti team up to take on hip-hop.

Spoek Mathambo - Put Some Red On It 

Genre: Hip-Hop
Why it rules: You might wonder what you’re listening to: We’ll tell you — it’s the future of hip-hop (or at least we hope it is). Check out this ill music video we repped back in 2010.

Yukon Blonde - Stairway

Genre: Rock
Why it rules: It’s one of the most energetic and anthemic songs of 2012.

Zeus - Anything You Want Dear

Genre: Rock
Why it rules: What would it sound like if The Band and Of Montreal had sex? Now you know.

Caravan Palace - Maniac

Genre: Electro
Why it rules: It’s a hyper-awesome mix of old jazz with electro music. How can you not groove to this?
