1. Young Jeezy feat. Nas, "My President"
If Young Jeezy and Nas had their way, our president would be black and turn "light green," when Obama's face is put on a $5,000 bill. [White Folks Get Crunk]

2. Vampire Weekend, "Everywhere" (Fleetwood Mac cover)
Vampire Weekend do a live cover of Fleetwood Mac in the style of Paul Simon's ska band. [Hypeful]

3. TV on the Radio, "Golden Age"
Like the "blown-up … ghetto blaster" in the lyrics, this track (from next month's Dear Science) is both heavily retro and totally on fire. [Pitchfork]

4. Bloc Party, "Trojan Horse"
If the best revenge is living well, then Bloc Party's Kele Okereke has some here, with a new single that's better than anything Johnny Rotten's put out recently. [Cannibal Cheerleader]

5. Atlas Sound, "Holiday"
Atlas Sound's (and Deerhoof's) Bradford Cox would probably like to "hold a knife to [the] perfect fucking face" of the guy who pilfered two unfinished albums and some personal photos when he dropped this virtual seven-inch on Mediafire and forgot to password-protect the rest of his files.
