1a. Klaxons, “As Above, So Below (Justice remix)”
After last week’s not so hot to trot show in DC, Justice helps Klaxons expand on their 45 minute set list by making them sound more like the Doobie Brothers. Which basically means – more awesome.Yacht rock. Look it up.

2.Arcade Fire, “Kiss Off” (Violent Femmes cover)
Overwhelmed by having all the hype in the world stolen by Radiohead, Arcade Fire turns feisty. And starts a vicious circle.

4.Elvis Costello, “Brilliant Disguise” (Bruce Springsteen cover)

5. The Kooks, “All That She Wants” (Ace of Base cover)
Brighton’s favorite whippersnappers covering Swedish pop’s black sheep had all the makings of either a. a disaster or b. the most awesome thing you’ve heard this week. It (thankfully, if a little disappointingly) lands closer to option b.

6.The Hives, “Try It Again”
I want to love the new Hives. (I actually want to love everything and everyone from Sweden, all the time, especially if it involves creative stage outfitting). But somehow, I can’t. “Hate to say I told you so”-this isn’t.

7. Daft Punk, “Too Long/Steam Machine” (live)
New Song! Finally something to keep those Daft Punk hands kids Busy. Like Bees.
