1. Vampire Weekend, "Ottoman"
Expanding their music empire into the world of soundtracks, VM offer up this Mark Mothersbaugh–produced, furniture-inspired track for the film Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. [Stereogum]
2. Lupe Fiasco feat. Q-Tip, Pharrell, and Sarah Green, "Paris, Tokyo (Remix)"
Some members of the "Backpack Rat Pack" (including a surprisingly fresh Q-Tip) take Lupe's track from business class to coach (in a good way). [Attorney Street]
3. Timbaland feat. T-Pain, "Say"
On this new slowish jam, Timbaland tries to convince a stripper to give up her career to date him. Based on his recent output, we'd stick with stripping. [Mixtape Maestro]
4. Radiohead, "Reckoner (Diplo Remix)"
This new Diplo remix (part of Radiohead's latest remix project) uses lots of his typical tricks (sirens, chopped-up rhythms), but not the one we most wanted — a verse or two by Santogold or M.I.A. [Gorilla vs. Bear]
5. Beach House, "Used to Be"
On this brand-new Beach House single, Victoria Legrand says, "It's always nice to see you again," and we couldn't agree more. [Pitchfork]
