1. Arcade Fire, "All the Umbrellas in London" (Magnetic Fields cover)
Win Butler and friends cover Stephin Merritt in what will surely be remembered as the whitest MP3 of all time. [Deaf Indie Elephants]

2. Holy Fuck, "Lovely Allen (No Age Remix)"
No Age reduce Holy Fuck's instrumental noodling to just a bass line and some R2D2 noises — a dramatic improvement. [Pitchfork]

3. Prodigy, "ABC"
Mobb Deep's soon-to-be-incarcerated half speaks Spanish, sort of. [Nah Right]

4. The National, "Slow Show" (live)
Here's the Boxer track played live in a studio (warning: Actual MP3 is as unexciting as the preceding description). [Stereogum]

5. Young Dro, I Am Legend
We've not yet listened to Young Dro's new mix tape, but it's got to be at least as good as the movie by the same name. [Nah Right]
