The latest MP3s to hit the blogs.

1. Morrissey, “That’s How People Grow Up”
Advice on living life to its fullest, from a celibate vegetarian. [Stereogum]

2. Iron & Wine, “Boy With a Coin”
Bummed-out folkie Sam Beam attempts to fend off the usual miserablism with hand claps and multi-tracked vocals. (Spoiler alert: Miserablism still wins!) [My Old Kentucky Blog]

3. Guillemots, “Never Went to Church” (Streets cover)
About a minute into this London band’s version of the Streets’$2 2006 single, they realize that Mike Skinner stole the melody from “Let It Be,” so they decide to play “Revolution 9” instead. [The Music Slut]

4. Capone-N-Noreaga, “City Boy”
This Journey-sampling track from the Heatmakerz’$2 2005 Crack Mixtape proves that “Don’t Stop Believin’” was gangsta even before the Sopranos finale. [BadmintonStamps]

5. Animal Collective, “Unsolved Mysteries”
Possibly one of the best-ever psychedelic folk songs about a UFO-related TV series narrated by Robert Stack. [The Muso]
—Lane Brown
