1. The Raconteurs, “Salute Your Solution” (Live on “Jools Holland”)

In support of their new album, Consolers of the Lonely, Jack White and Co. turn in a fiery version of their new single for the popular British TV show. If we paid them in pounds, would they play like this for American television? [Culture Bully]

2. Jason Mraz, “Butterfly”
Mraz’s new album is titled We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, purportedly a comment on the state of the music business. This track, though, sounds like it was stolen in the mid-nineties. [Mixtape Maestro]

3. Young MC, “Know How Theme (Bmore Remix)”
Aaron LaCrate and Debonair Samir somehow make Young MC, well, young again. [Notes From a Different Kitchen]

4. Birdman feat. Lil Wayne, “I Run This (Remix)”
On this remix of the new single from Birdman, Weezy says that he’ll “be here when you come for me.” That makes sense, considering that it seems impossible to get away from him these days. [First Up!]

5. Shearwater, “The Rainbow”
Shearwater releases a stunning cover of this Talk Talk classic that shimmers and terrifies. Don’t expect a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow; just a really distraught leprechaun. [Pitchfork] —Ehren Gresehover
