1. Clipse, “20k Money Making Brothers on the Corner”
On this first taste of the upcoming mixtape We Got It 4 Cheap Vol. 3: The Spirit of Competition (We Just Think We’re Better), Malice and Pusha-T compare coke-selling to golf, piano-playing, pole-vaulting, and yoga. Bravo! [Gorilla Vs. Bear]

2. Amy Adams, “Happy Working Song”
Adams sings a song about housework from the film Enchanted, which itself cleaned up in the Best Original Song category at yesterday’s Oscar nominations, scoring three. [Earfarm]

3. Andrew Bird, “Trees Were Mistaken”
Dark and set to what sounds almost like a break beat, this new track finds the typically folkie violinist capably stepping outside his comfort zone. The trees must not have thought he could do it. [Thanks Captain Obvious]

4. Joanna Newsom, “Esame”
“Esame” is more of the same from Newsom — amazing, basically. [No Words]

5. Jens Lekman, “I’m Leaving You Because I Don’t Love You (Spoolwork remix)”
Spoolwork remakes Lekman’s track in the style of the Ronettes. [Culture Bully]
