R.E.M. is steadily leaking tracks from its upcoming release Collapse Into Now, which the band recorded in New Orleans. You can stream them on R.E.M.'s website. The album — the band's 15th in the studio — debuts March 7. Also on the album: Patti Smith, Eddie Vedder and Peaches. The band's Mike Mills told Spin, "It's really important to go out, get great food, shrug off the debris of the day, and just be friends and have a good time. In Berlin you drink beer and eat wurst. In New Orleans you eat Cajun food and drink Sazerac."

In case you missed it earlier this month, grab Curren$y's latest mixtape Return to the Winner's Circle. The mixtape follows the New Orleans rapper's impressive 2010 releases; Pilot Talk (both volumes I and II) dominated year-end best lists, yet the MC still flew under the radar with his pseudo-psychedelic, funk-laden hip-hop and super-stoned flow.

Backporch Revolution offers two massive albums from drone artist Archipelago: The Earth Moves Five Ways and Two Fires. Find more free music from the label on its website.

Music from Christoph Andersson, NOLABounce.com, Vox & The Hound and others below the jump:

Find NOLABounce.com's bounce playlist on Soundcloud. (The latest track is Emynd's heavy-handed remix of Rihanna's "What's My Name".)

Up-and-coming electronic pop maestro Christoph Andersson offers several new tracks on his Soundcloud playlist. You also can stream his albums, released through his own Hurst Recordings label.

Stream Vox & the Hound's new, breathless indie pop EP Hermosa, released last weekend.

And below is the video for the Cliff Hines Quintet's "Pastels", produced by The Greenhouse Collective and shot live at the Contemporary Arts Center:
