1. Tapes ‘N Tapes, “Hang Them All”
Minneapolis’ finest come out in favor of capital punishment on this excellent new taste from their forthcoming second album. [My Old Kentucky Blog]

2. Team 9, “Sugar and Cheese”
In case you were wondering what Mary J Blige’s “Just Fine” would sound like mashed up with Snow Patrol’s “Open Your Eyes,” here you go. [Pop Bytes]

3. We Are Scientists, “Be My Baby”
Adding feedback and strange, tinkly percussion isn’t really going to improve on one of history’s greatest-ever pop songs, but we guess you can’t expect a band named We Are Scientists to resist experimenting. [JP’s Blog]

4. Larry Tee, “I Love U”
Novelty track setting a cute kid’s voice to music. Not quite as annoying as that sounds, though. [Missing Toof]

5. Beirut, “A Sunday Smile (Son Lux’s ‘Want’ Remix)”
Son Lux takes Beirut’s Eastern European sound farther east, making it sound like Zach Condon just got back from Bali. Let’s hope he got a little sun while he was out there. [Missing Thumbs]

6. Kittens Ablaze, “This Machine Is Dying”
Hilarious name aside, even PETA members should enjoy these Brooklynites. [Salad Days Music]
