Singles file: Rihanna, Court Yard Hounds, the Dead Weather
By Allison Stewart
A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind.
Rihanna: "Rude Boy" (Diplo Rudeboyz Remix)
From the Department of Things Somebody Should Have Thought of Sooner: Diplo mashes Rihanna's newest hit with M.I.A.'s '07 smash "Boyz."
Court Yard Hounds: "Ain't No Son"
Tired of waiting for Natalie Maines, the remaining two-thirds of the Dixie Chicks reconvene as a swinging - if slightly uncertain-sounding - duo on this track from their self-titled May debut.
(The Dead Weather, Weezy f. Ludacris, after the jump.)
The Dead Weather: "Treat Me Like Your Mother" (Z-Trip remix featuring Slug from Atmosphere)
Mash-up pioneer Z-Trip expertly rejiggers last year's Jack White-powered hit.
Lil Wayne featuring Ludacris: "Eat You Alive"
You can't remove all memory of "Rebirth" from your scarred psyche. That would take a licensed therapist. But this track, originally slated for "Tha Carter III" and previously leaked in a partial, Ludacris-free form, will at least remind you of the good times.
DJ Food: "More Volts: The Funky Eno" (mix)
Relive producer Brian Eno's reign as the king of art-student funk in this hour-long mix, collated from his post-'70s work.
