Writers Wanted: 2015 Q2 Infinite Playlist

It's been a very busy year since the last one of these happened. Sorry about the radio silence on these, and I think it's high time we kicked back into gear. If you haven't yet experienced the frenetic outpouring of words that is the Infinite Playlist yet, this is what it entails. (I've adapted (copy-pasted) the descriptions from last year's playlist for the sake of consistency, clarity and laziness.)
1Jamie xx
In Colour

Choose a song released in April, May, or June 2015. Post your selection below so
we can avoid repeats. Ideally, we'd want a good mix of stuff in terms of exposure -
feel free to cover something off the new Muse if you must, but if
you have a song in mind which might be lesser-known and could benefit from the
exposure of the playlist, go for that.

Find a high-quality YouTube, SoundCloud, or Bandcamp link of the song. A legal stream is very much preferable, so if you can find two YouTube links and one is ostensibly from the artist's or label's channel, go with that one. (Obviously, not everything is going to be streamable, so let me know if finding a link presents an issue and we can work something out.)
3Florence and the Machine
How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

Describe the song in 5-10 sentences. How you write your description is up to you:
it can be funny, serious, evocative, otherworldly, whatever. Just describe the song
as best you can. The 5-10 sentence stipulation is more a guideline than a hard limit. If you can't think of more than three or four sentences, that's fine. If you can't fit your description into fewer than thirteen or fourteen, that's fine as well. However, if you send me a sentence-long blurb or a 1500-word one, chances are I'll ask you to revise.
4Paradise Lost
The Plague Within

In your submission email, order your information like so: "Song Title" by (insert
artist(s) here), blurb/description, album/EP/single name and release date, your username.
REMEMBER: SECOND QUARTER OF 2015 ONLY. If there are some case-by-case
issues you'd like to sort out, let me know via comment here, shoutbox, or email.
Resolutions to some issues I can think of off the top of my head: if the single was
released in a different quarter but the album it's featured on was released this
quarter, that's fine. If the song was/is going to be released this quarter but the
album will be released sometime later, that's also fine.

6Lil Ugly Mane
Third Side of Tape

That's pretty much it. I'll keep y'all updated on the status of submissions via
various means, and hopefully we'll have enough by the end of the month. Here's the
kicker: I really want this to be a learning opportunity for people who are a little
self-conscious about their writing. If I think a submission could use some work
before being published (and/or if you'd specifically like me to give some feedback on
your work), I will respond to your submission with some minor editing ideas that
could make your piece better. It's up to you to resubmit - the process should go on
until I deem the product fit to publish, and hopefully we'll both gain something from
the editing. I'm going to try my best not to cut anything, and if y'all are willing to work with me that won't have to happen. Good luck, and I hope to see some quality submissions!
