1. Kanye West, “The Stalker Song (Never Lettin’ Go)”

This unreleased Kanye song sounds more like one of his blog posts with a beat behind it, but it’s funny enough for a free download. [Pretty Much Amazing]

2. EPMD, “Run It (Duke Dumont Remix)”
The rap legends release their first single in about a decade. Not bad! [Docking Station]

3. The Kooks, “Kids” (MGMT cover)
The Kooks show up at an Australian radio station to cover our favorite unpronounceably monikered synth poppers. [Hyperbole]

4. Spoon, “Writing to You in Reverse”
A high-quality bootleg from the Pitchfork Music Festival catches this debut of a new track from Spoon, which is surprisingly intelligible considering its title. [You Ain’t No Picasso]

5. Cat Power, “Space Oddity” (David Bowie cover)
The only odd thing about Cat Power covering Bowie is that it’s on a car commercial and not on yet another of her amazing covers records. [Gorilla vs. Bear]
