On Tuesday's Afternoon Shift, The Break Room features singer-songwriter Ben Kweller with the song "Full Circle" off of his new album Go Fly a Kite. While Kweller continues to write succinct pop songs on his fifth studio album, "Full Circle" features the best mixture of his multi-instrumental indie rock and alt-country influences, adding up to a song that while indebted to the past, is entirely Kweller's own.

The Break Room also features Frank Ocean of the hip-hop collective Odd Future with his new single "Pyramids" off of his upcoming debut album Channel Orange. With a catchy beat that goes on a ten-minute journey, "Pyramids" is both a continuation and evolution of Ocean's R&B-infused hip-hop featured on his critically-acclaimed first mixtape, Nostalgia, Ultra.
