Matthew Weiner, accepting the award for Outstanding Show We Could Be Watching Right Now If It Weren’t For the Stupid Emmys.

1. Lambchop, “National Talk Like a Pirate Day”
The festive folks at Merge generously drop this peppy track from Lambchop’s forthcoming record, OH(ohio), in honor of today’s holiday. [Captains Dead]

2. T.I., “Swagger Like Us (Diddy’s Swagger Like Puff Remix)”
It’s things like Diddy’s remix (and awesome accompanying video) of T.I.’s new star-studded M.I.A.-sampling anthem that make his YouTube page the best rapper-run vlog on the Internet (sorry, Soulja Boy). [Mixtape Podcast]

3. Wale feat. Xscape, “I Will”
Wale kicks off the backlash to the backlash, insisting he doesn’t hate the player haters, he hates the player-hating game. [Attorney Street]

4. Antony and the Johnsons, “Shake that Devil”
The ASPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Antony) would like you to listen to this awesome musical public-service announcement about the way dogs, birds, and pigs pick on Antony. [I Guess I’m Floating]

5. Brian Wilson, “That Lucky Old Sun” (live)
When is a cab ride a “dream come true”? Never. But this live-in-a-car version of the title track from Wilson’s new album is still pretty great. [Pitchfork]
