1. Iron and Wine, “Carousel”
Iron and Wine’s new album is out today. Enjoy your coma. [Lines Through Lines]

2. H-Town, “Knockin’ Da Boots”
One of the best, dirtiest nineties R&B jams of all time. In a perfect world, this would always be the song playing when your alarm goes off. [’90s R&B Junkie]

3. Bedouin Soundclash, “Jealousy and the Get Free”
For some reason, it’s almost 90 degrees today. Enjoy your summer flashback with a slice of Canadian reggae (no, really!). [Berkeley Place]

4. Super Furry Animals, “Run-Away”
Did you bring your bong to work today? You’ll need it to fully enjoy the true story of whatever Gruff Rhys is talking about. As an added bonus, enjoy the cuckoo bananas video. [Panda Toes]

5. Joell Ortiz, “Have a Lil Fun”
There’s nothing glamorous about Ortiz, but he’s a Brooklyn guy with a delightfully easy flow and an old-school sense of humor. If you’re sick of 50 and Kanye (and who isn’t?), here’s your antidote. [Nah Right]
