Supergrass Call the Police

1. Supergrass, “Next to You” (Police cover)

Thanks to the $400 ticket prices for the Police’s last-ever show at MSG next month, we might not make it. But this YouTubed, Britpopped remake of the Outlandos d’Amour track is probably the next best thing to being there. [Fuel Friends]

2. M. Ward, “Undertaker”
Merge is giving away free demos from Ward’s third album, Transfiguration of Vincent, to prove that he could, in fact, play guitar and sing before he met Zooey Deschanel. [Merge via Fuel Friends]

3. Sean Bones, “Easy Street”
You probably wouldn’t think the guitar player from Sam Champion would be able to convincingly pull off reggae, but you’d actually be completely wrong, you idiot. [MySpace]

4. I’m From Barcelona, “Paper Planes”
The Swedish Polyphonic Spree return with a decent track from their new album, which, sadly, is not an M.I.A. cover. [Spin via Stereogum]

5. Dizzee Rascal vs. Cut Copy, “Strangerole (Windskool)”
The mash-up geniuses splice the DNA of Rascal’s charming single “Pussyhole” with Cut Copy’s “Strangers in the Wind,” rendering it slightly more downcast but no less NSFW. [Hood Internet via Gorilla vs. Bear]
