Singles file: Rome f. Jack White, Tittsworth, Zoo Kid

By Allison Stewart

tittsworthD.C.'s Tittsworth gets remixed by D.C.'s Steve Starks, reminding us of the wealth of electronic music talent surrounding us.

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

Rome featuring Jack White: "Two Against One"

It's not a cure-all for White Stripes withdrawal, but the contribution of hyper-prolific White to the new, Italian-film-score-influenced collaboration between Danger Mouse and composer Daniele Luppi is one of the best tracks we've heard from him all year.

Tittsworth: "Tear the Club (Steve Starks Remix)"

D.C.-based DJ Starks ratchets up the bass on this reworking of Tittsworth's '08 "Tear the Club Up."

Zoo Kid: "Out Getting Ribs"

Do not adjust your set: Archy Marshall may uncannily resemble Elly Jackson from La Roux, but he's really a teenage Brit with a thing for Basquiat. The video of his gorgeous, awkward, echo-filled track finds Marshall looking sad (maybe they were out of ribs?) but resolute.

Cold War Kids: "Mine Is Yours (Yeasayer Remix)"

Know what was missing from the original version of this track? Robot noises, 1980s-style. Yeasayer rectifies the error on this gurgly remix.

Arabian Knightz: "Rebel"

The Cairo-based trio's newest track, billed as the first-ever hip-hop song about the Egyptian revolution, was released unmixed, a literal first draft of history. Bonus: It's the only rap track we've ever heard to give a shout-out to former Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser.
