Around the Blogs Mix 1/26:
Inauguration Edition

1). "First Time High" (Reconstructionist Remix of "An Eluardian Instance") - Of Montreal
Jon Brion takes one of the better songs from Of Montreal's Skeletal Lamping and makes it, well, better. Brio doesn't change much - more some handy rearranging which makes it more of a great stand-alone song.

2). "Till min syster" - Love Lindblom
I try to stay tuned in to new sounds coming from Scandinavia, and Swedesplease (the source of this gem) is making that a good deal easier.

3). "Know" - Nick Drake
I've now learned this is the track featured in the new Revolutionary Road trailer. I saw the film over the weekend and found it disappointing on the visual side, but the acting (Leo, too) and the script were superb. Download "Know" at Stranger Dance.

4). "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (Part One)" - (Minipop)
Minipop performed this great Flaming Lips cover during a recent Daytrotter session. [Via Web In Front]

5). "Daylight" - Matt and Kim
I kind of missed the boat on Matt and Kim the last time around, so I am going to try and get on now - starting with this single, which you can download at Music Ramen.

6). "Guess Who, Batman" - Lily Allen
Lily Allen waves goodbye to George W. Bush with two lovely words ("fuck you") repeated over and over again. Download it at Pretty Much Amazing.

7).“No You Girls" (Dominik Grötz Remix) - Franz Ferdinand
Franz Ferdinand's third album drops this week, and while you anticipate its arrival, chew on this remix over at one of my favorite music blogs, We Like it Indie.

8). "The Government" - Saul Williams
Singer/rapper/slam poet Saul Williams dropped this politically-drenched track last week on inauguration day. Download it at The Tape, who also have news on other new music from Williams.

9). "Unstoppable" (remix) - Santogold featuring Lil Wayne and Drake
Hot remixes of Santogold tracks keep falling from the sky. Now you can download this one at RCRDLBL. It sports Lil Wayne using auto tune (no surprise there), plus Weezy's latest signing - Drake - who some of our readers may know as Jimmy from Degrassi: The Next Generation.

10). "Prom Queen," Lil Wayne
While we're on the subject of Lil Wayne, dude cannot keep his music from leaking. "Prom Queen" is the first single from his forthcoming, Rebirth. Due in April, Rebirth showcases the rock sound he's been working on because he don't just wear that guitar as a fashion statement. Cop "Prom Queen" via Cukture Bully.
