New Daft Punk song "The Game Has Changed": Remember during birthdays as a kid when your mom or dad would let you guess at what your present might be, and you could read how accurate you were by their facial expressions and pauses? Well, forget about all that teasery, because Daft Punk just decided to blast us with the best gift imaginable: 90 seconds of a new song from the upcoming Tron: Legacy soundtrack, due out this December. Just another reason your parents are inferior to Daft Punk. [LINK]
MGMT Internet documentary coming soon: If you were one of those folks who didn't know what to make of MGMT's sophomore album Congratulations, but knew you wanted more, you can now enjoy that same enraged confusion in visual format thanks to the trailer for Camp MGMT. We don't know what to make of it, but apparently the filmmakers spent a day with the band and have created an intimate, "take away" look at the duo. So, if you're down for that kind of stuff, go nuts. [LINK]
Sample 52 seconds of the new Lupe Fiasco song: Lupe Fiasco fans, put down your protest signs and pick up your headphones.

The Chemical Brothers to score film about teenage assassin: In the film Hanna, Saoirse Ronan plays the title character, a 14-year-old girl who has been trained by her father (Eric Bana) to be a deadly assassin. Not exactly a heartwarming tale, but if anything can give it a much needed boost in the head nod-ability department, it's sick acid beats from The Chemical Brothers. We propose that they just go ahead and score all dark, potentially awkward situations in life. [LINK]
Watch Titus Andronicus "The Battle of Hampton Roads": Undoubtedly taking cues from the epic hair of their brethren, New Jersey's Titus Andronicus have always been a very epic band. But for the video for the closing track from The Monitor, the 14-minute "The Battle of Hampton Roads," the band go all out in a massively emotional performance that sees the band's uniquely chaotic stage presence shine in all its dirty glory. They sure done Jersey proud. [LINK]
