A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...

LCD Soundsystem: "Change"

James Murphy's almost-unadorned vocals are placed uncharacteristically upfront in the mix on this "Scary Monsters"-conjuring leak from LCD Soundsystem's upcoming, and maybe final, new disc.

DJ Premier: "Malcolm McLaren Tribute Mix"

Using vintage tracks and McLaren's own reminiscences, Premier's new mix tape pays homage to the late impresario's little-heralded days as a hip-hop pioneer.

(Cypress Hill teams with Marc Anthony, Thurston Moore covers Burt Bacharach, after the jump.)

Cypress Hill featuring Pitbull and Marc Anthony: "Armada Latina"

What do you get when you cross a newly relevant '90s hip-hop outfit with Pitbull, J. Lo's husband and history's most random CSN sample? A song that tries hard to be your designated summer jam - and succeeds.

Thurston Moore: "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me" (Burt Bacharach cover)

Naked Eyes be damned! The Sonic Youth frontman cuts loose, kind of, on a cut from this Japanese-issue Bacharach tribute disc.

Chiddy Bang: "Hey London"

The Philly duo sample Hot Chip's "One Life Stand" on this slightly derivative but mostly just great new track, from their new mini-mix tape, "Air Swell."

Just a note on the LCD Soundsystem track: The site we linked to now has its title listed as "I Can Change," so do lots of other places, but we think we're right on this one. For now. Its title could change ten more times before release day, but we love it anyway.
