The latest MP3s to hit the blogs.
1. Radiohead, A Bit of Tape From the Studio
Over the weekend, Radiohead updated their Website with these second-long clips from their forthcoming album, which is a completely acceptable way to thank fans who've been waiting more than four years for new material. [A Reminder]
2. Interpol, "The Scale"
The audio quality isn't very good, but this MP3 sounds just enough like Joy Division to make us believe it's Interpol. [Dead Flowers]
3. The White Stripes, "Moonage Daydream" (David Bowie cover)
The best part of this pre-fame live recording by the White Stripes is the guitar solo. But the second-best part is the audience member standing near the microphone who thinks Jack White "sounds like a weirdo." [You Ain't No Picasso]
4. Beirut, "Knife" (Grizzly Bear cover)
Now if Arcade Fire would just cover Animal Collective, Brooklyn Vegan could take the rest of the week off. [Stereogum]
5. LL Cool J feat. Kool G. Rap, Mobb Deep, 50 Cent, and Tony Yayo, "Queens"
LL Cool J pays tribute to New York's second-most-populous borough by cramming six rappers into one vocal booth. [Nah Right]
