Vampire Weekend Put Their Feet Up

Walter wonders if the person taking this picture is trying to steal his soul.

1. Vampire Weekend, “Ottoman”
Expanding their music empire into the world of soundtracks, VM offer up this Mark Mothersbaugh–produced, furniture-inspired track for the film Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. [Stereogum]

2. Lupe Fiasco feat. Q-Tip, Pharrell, and Sarah Green, “Paris, Tokyo (Remix)”
Some members of the “Backpack Rat Pack” (including a surprisingly fresh Q-Tip) take Lupe’s track from business class to coach (in a good way). [Attorney Street]

3. Timbaland feat. T-Pain, “Say”
On this new slowish jam, Timbaland tries to convince a stripper to give up her career to date him. Based on his recent output, we’d stick with stripping. [Mixtape Maestro]

4. Radiohead, “Reckoner (Diplo Remix)”
This new Diplo remix (part of Radiohead’s latest remix project) uses lots of his typical tricks (sirens, chopped-up rhythms), but not the one we most wanted — a verse or two by Santogold or M.I.A. [Gorilla vs. Bear]

5. Beach House, “Used to Be”
On this brand-new Beach House single, Victoria Legrand says, “It’s always nice to see you again,” and we couldn’t agree more. [Pitchfork]
