1. Santogold and Diplo, “Guns of Brooklyn”

Diplo continues to give Santogold the M.I.A. treatment by teaming up with her on a new mixtape, from which comes this fantastic half-cover of the Clash’s “Guns of Brixton.” [Gorilla vs. Bear]

2. Britney Spears, “Sometimes it Feels Like the World’s on My Shoulders” (demo)
On this newly leaked a capella demo, Britney gives an earnest and unguarded look at her problems and claims, “My insecurities could eat me alive.” Wait till she reads what people are saying about this track on blogs! [Britney Groupie]

3. Jakob Dylan, “Something Good this Way Comes”
You’ve probably seen the latest record from Bob’s progeny while standing in line at Starbucks. Is it as toothlessly bland as you’d expect? Yes, sadly. [Culture Bully]

4. Matthew Sweet, “Feel Fear”
Sweet made an impressive career out of swiping chord progressions from the Beatles — but now he’s stealing from “Free as a Bird.” [A Plague of Angels]

5. Fight Like Apes, “Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues (Mclusky Cover)”
Tearing pell-mell down the same lunatic freeway as X-Ray Spex and Be Your Own Pet, Fight Like Apes owns this Mclusky cover, the B-side to their awesome new single, Something Global. [Egoeccentric] —Ehren Gresehover
