The latest MP3s to hit the blogs.
1. Arcade Fire, "Distortions" (Clinic cover)
At the Sasquatch festival over the weekend, Win Butler and crew did their version of a track by the masked, krautrocking Liverpudlians, and it wasn't even Ryan Schreiber's birthday. [The Music Slut]
2. Jesse Malin, "Sister Christian Where Are You Now"
We'll spare you any disappointment up front: This has nothing to do with the Night Ranger song. [Fuel Friends]
3. Eels, "Royal Pain"
Back in the late nineties, when Mark Oliver Everett was writing all those albums about cancer, he probably never imagined that he'd one day find himself on the Shrek 2 soundtrack, much less the one for Shrek the Third. [My Old Kentucky Blog]
4. Shellac, "Steady As She Goes"
Steve Albini, the producer responsible for Nirvana's In Utero, turns in a track that sounds like an outtake from Bleach. [Idolator]
5. Linda Thompson feat. Antony Hegarty, "Beauty"
Rufus Wainwright wrote this pensive ballad for the British folk legend, so be careful not to blow your speakers. [DoCopenhagen]
