In two syllables, Tennessee’s most articulate garage rockers sum up what life is probably like for a member of Kings of Leon. [Born by the River]

2. My Morning Jacket, “Wear Your Love Like Heaven” (Donovan cover)
The Louisville reverb slingers cover the sixties folkie in a terrific advertisement for drugs. [I Guess I’m Floating]

3. Super Furry Animals, “Baby Ate My Eightball”
The Welsh weirdos impress yet again on a new song about the dangers of mixing infants with pool tables. [8/1]

Brooklyn siblings Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger return with more excellent psychedelic nonsense. [Said the Gramophone]

5. Sparklehorse feat. Thom Yorke, “Wish You Were Here” (Pink Floyd cover)
For this cover, Thom Yorke recorded his backing vocals over a cell phone — and you thought his solo album sounded phoned-in. [Faronheit]

6. Destroyer, “Rivers”
Dan Bejar’s lyrics are so obtuse that this new track could very well be about the lead singer of Weezer and we’d never know it. [Rawkblog]
