1. Lil Wayne, "Pussy Monster"
Lil Wayne finally releases a studio version of this live staple, which is every bit as dirty as you might imagine. [ href="http://fluokids.blogspot.com/2008/08/tais-toi-quand-tu-parles.html">Fluo Kids]
2. James Lavino feat. Colin Greenwood, Lee Seargent, and Tyler Sergeant, "How to Look at a Bird"
The Seargent brothers (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!) and Radiohead's Greenwood helped James Lavino score an indie film called Woodpecker. The results are predictably excellent. [ Pitchfork]
3. Franz Ferdinand, "Lucid Dreams"
"There is no nation of you, there is no nation of me, our only nation lies in lucid dreams," sings Alex Kapranos on this great new single, but he doesn't say how his dream nation is doing in the medal count. [Pretty Much Amazing]
4. Ratatat, "Mirando (Yacht Remix)"
Jona Bechtolt gets someone who might very well be DMX's younger brother to drop some playground arms-race lyrics on this Ratatat song. [Stereogum]
5. Grizzly Bear, "Fine for Now"
Grizzly Bear debut yet another new song at the All Points West festival, and it's fine for whenever, thanks to YouTube. [Pitchfork] —Ehren Gresehover
