    mp3s 4 Top 10 mp3s of the Week (7/8)

    I sort of feel like Coach Eric Taylor in a Friday Night Lights halftime speech every time I jump behind the wheel here to write these intros every Friday. It’s all pep talk banter: “we’ve been scouring the internet” this, and “we’re gonna soldier on no matter what” that. But in all reality, how much pep talking do you really need? It’s 10 bang-up tracks, simple as that. So, for this week, let’s eliminate the superfluous speeches, and get right down to the nitty gritty. A couple streams of unmatched quality (we’re talking Caribou remixing Radiohead and brand spanking new Tallest Man On Earth good), and a handful of this week’s best and brightest mp3s. TGIF indeed. – Winston Robbins

    Common feat. Nas – “Ghetto Dreams”

    What has gotten into Nas these days? A few weeks back, he unveiled the unbelievably cool one-off “Nasty”, now we have this piping hot collaboration with Common? Is he making a final run for his spot as the king of hip hop? Could be! Whatever his intentions, he’s spitting with more energy and more excitement than he has in almost a decade. See below, where he raps showstopping-ly about his shortcomings, his inhibitions, and, of course, his ghetto credentials.

    Fair Ohs – “Baldessari”

    Fair Ohs (formerly Thee Fair Ohs) share an ambitious, jangly pop cut from their forthcoming major label debut LP. Filled to the brim with tropical rhythms, speedy guitar riffs, and a very sing-a-long chorus, this one’s truly fit for summer.

    The Avalanches – “Since I Left You (Stereolab Remix)”

    To commemorate the 10th anniversary of their incendiary album Since I Left You, The Avalanches will be re-releasing the album with a bonus disc, which will include re-works from MF Doom, El Guincho, and Black Dice. This Stereolab remix of the title track is not on that bonus disc, but is an existing remix that, up until a few days ago, was only available on vinyl. The remix basically re-routes the song in every possible direction – slowing it down, speeding it up, making it heavier, stripping it down – but never once does it lose its charm or the charm of the original, which, in our book, makes this remix a complete winner.
