1. Lil Wayne feat. Twista, "Burn This City"
Given the wildfires currently ravaging Southern California, Wayne probably could've picked a more tasteful Franz Ferdinand song to sample, though certainly not a better one. [Da Mixed Boy]
2. Arcade Fire, "Still Ill" (Smiths cover)
Earth's whitest band miraculously finds a way to sound even whiter. [Stereogum]
4. Jenny Lewis feat. Jonathan Rice, "Little Boxes (Weeds theme)"
The adorable Rilo Kiley singer does an adorable version of TV's most adorable theme song. [Music Slut]
5. The Redwalls, "Summer Romance"
Like the Beatles? If so, you'll have something in common with this Chicago quartet. [MPR]
