1. Nas, “Black President”
Which presidential candidate will win the all-important Nas endorsement? To find out, you’re just going to have to listen to this new track. [Nah Right]

2. Gameboy/Gamegirl, “Sweaty Wet (Shir Khan Remix)”
Shir Khan drops a remix of the Australian retro-electro outfit’s breakout single, just in time for the year’s first heat wave. [Get Weird Turn Pro]

3. The Melvins, “Nude With Boots”
The title track on their forthcoming album sees the aging proto-grungers stripping off much of their sludge (but leaving on their shit-kickers). [A Limerick Ox]

4. The Colony, “English Kids”
The Colony’s Grimlok is “compared to Eminem, because [he] lack melanin.” Also, he’s from England, and he’s named after a transformable dinosaur. These guys may be nerdcore, but they’re surprisingly legit. [Certified Banger]

5. Uglysuit, “Chicago”
This track broods, swells, and soars in the breeziest way possible. Even with the ugly suit, these guys are beautiful. [Largehearted Boy]

6. Phoenix, “Twenty-One One Zero”
The best French rock band in the world (whose singer Thomas Mars is Sofia Coppola’s baby daddy) drop this sprawling new track that’s instrumental until the last 30 seconds. We guess fatherhood must be keeping Mars too busy to write lyrics. [Asian Dan]
