Pitchfork continues to surprise me with their reviews, but this time, it's a surprise of the pleasant variety. Not only did they slap the coveted "Best New Music" tag on Girl Talk's insanely fun mash-up party record Night Ripper, they also gave the Teddybears' "Yours to Keep" a 4-star track review.
I've loved this song since Dodge told me to check them out a week or so ago. Even though "Yours to Keep" is slated to be on the band's new release, according to Pitchfork, it's six years old, and features vocals from Neneh Cherry (of "Buffalo Stance" fame) AND Annie. I'm expecting to get sick of this song any minute, but it hasn't happened yet:

Feist's collection of "remixes and collabs," Open Season, comes out tomorrow. The album features a gorgeous collaboration with Jane Birkin, as well as remixes by the Postal Service, Mocky, Apostle of Hustle, and more, including this K-os Remix of "Mushaboom." Surprisingly, the track lends itself very well to the hip-hop treatment:
