1. The Hives, “Try It Again”
Remember on Friday how we said the new Hives album sounded like refried Junior Senior? Here’s proof. [Mewzick]

2. Bruce Springsteen feat. Arcade Fire, “Keep the Car Running”
The Boss covers a track from AF’s Neon Bible, which was pretty much already a Bruce Springsteen song anyway. [Stereogum]

3. Nada Surf, “See the Bones”
The fifteen-year-old New York band miraculously stave off oblivion with yet another great song. [Stereogum]

4. Elvis Costello, “Brilliant Disguise” (Bruce Springsteen cover)
You’d think this would be fantastic. And you’d be exactly right. [Fuel Friends]

5. Super Furry Animals, “Aluminum Illuminati”
More idiosyncratic lunacy from the weirdest Welshmen psychedelic prog-pop has ever known. We have no idea what this song has to do with aluminum. Or Illuminati. [Funeral Pudding]
