1. My Morning Jacket, "Evil Urges"
We're not sure which sinful compulsions MMJ are referring to on the title track from their just-leaked new album, but this song makes us want to grow a beard, buy a van, and drive to Bonnaroo. [Macktronic]
2. The Instruments feat. Jeff Mangum, "Ode to the Sea"
Heather MacIntosh plays bass and cello, is in Gnarls Barkley's touring band, and fronts her own group, the Instruments. But her biggest accomplishment might be dragging Neutral Milk Hotel's reclusive front man in front of a microphone for this track. [Pitchfork]
3. Hot Chip, "Nothing Compares 2 U" (Prince cover) and "In the Privacy of Our Love"
Hot Chip make an appearance on Minnesota Public Radio on Friday and show a little Twin Cities love by prefacing one of their own songs with another by Minneapolis' best musical export. [Music Slut]
4. Jennifer Lopez, "Want U 2 B Mine" (Glass Fire Island mix)
Rumor has it that NYC duo the Glass remixed this song for a club promoter in exchange for a bag of drugs. Surely this is further evidence of the weakness of the U.S. dollar. [Discobelle]
5. Lyrics Born, "Whispers"
Lyrics Born's new album ends with this song, a touchingly confessional story about dealing with the sudden death of his best friend. [Anyone's Guess] —Ehren Gresehover
