A mess of newish songs to smooth over my spotty posting...

Radiohead - "House of Cards"
I just think this is the prettiest song Radiohead has ever made. From "In Rainbows"

Andrew Bird - "A Nervous Tick Motion of the Head to the Left"
Brilliant. From "The Mysterious Production of Eggs"

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Down Boy"
I don't think I'll ever be a huge YYYs fan, but they always, always pull out awesome tracks like this one. From their EP last year.

The Ravonettes - "Dead Sound" This song has officially turned me on to the Raveonettes.

Bettye LaVette - "Streets of Philadelphia" Easily the best Bruce Springsteen cover I've ever heard.

Dr. Dog - "Ain't it Strange"
This song is so damned fun!!! From "Takers and Leavers" EP.

Vampire Weekend - "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa"
I want to hate VW and this song, but I don't. Also, Paul Simon wants his song back.
