Fonzworth Bentley Turns Kanye West and André 3000 Into Gents

1. Fonzworth Bentley feat. Kanye West, André 3000, and Sa-Ra, “Everybody”
Bentley has a new TV show on which he’ll turn gangstas into gentlemen. To demonstrate his powers, he’s transformed two of the biggest personalities in hip-hop into Temptations-esque backup singers in his new video. [Kanye West’s Blog]

2. Liars, “Disgusting”
The Liars have debuted a new song on their Website, continuing the band’s recent push to record poppier tracks with shorter titles. [Pitchfork]

3. Mercury Rev, “Senses on Fire”
Mercury Rev are releasing not one but two new records this fall, one through regular distribution channels and the other as a free download. We’re guessing it’ll be hard to tell which is which when you’re downloading them on the torrent sites, but if this track is any indication, either will be probably worth your time. [Some Velvet Blog]

4. Mirah, “Slighted”
Mirah’s last work was aimed at schooling kids about entomology, but this ska-inflected track off her new odds-and-ends collection is all about summer fun. [Indie Muse]

5. Pitbull, “American War”
Pitbull freestyles over Estelle’s hit but turns the song toward a much more serious end than getting a boyfriend. Suffice it to say, he isn’t digging this American war. [First Up!] —Ehren Gresehover
