Thom Yorke Not Singing About Nipples

1. Thom Yorke, “Reckoner” (live)
In this quiet, acoustic version of the In Rainbows track, it’s much easier to make out the lyrics. We’d thought the chorus was about “nipples on a plane.” Turns out it’s not! [Gorilla vs. Bear]

2. Jena Malone and Her Bloodstains, “Crowded Fire Scenes”
The Donnie Darko star posts a new track from her band (which features Russell Simmins of JSBX fame) that is full of strange, whispery menace. You’ll love it if you like PJ Harvey’s early work or if you wish that Malone could’ve been your high-school girlfriend.

3. Snoop Dogg feat. Robyn, “Sexual Eruption (Frye Department Remix)”
The addition of our favorite Swedish pop diva to Snoop’s recent leaked single is, predictably, awesome. [Discobelle]

4. Counting Crows, “1492”
This new track (from a new Crows album to be released in March) sounds like an unholy collaboration between Pearl Jam and the Arctic Monkeys, which is way better than we ever expected. [chrisdellavedova]

5. Sugarettes, “Ready Steady”
This new single from the Sugarettes makes good on the promise of the band’s moniker — too much of it will make you sick. [False 45th]

6. Chalant, “Suck My Pussy”
In this classy new track, Chalant’s front woman, Jenital Candies, cops to seducing her manager at Wendy’s to get an extra 50 cents an hour. If she was trying to make us feel bad about downloading her music for free, mission accomplished. [Licorice Pizza]
