Oh Cee-Lo, I'm so glad that you have an odd sense of humor and that you are so tight with Danger Mouse, because it makes this parody of "The Ghost Inside" that much more amusing. Cee-Lo's version, "The Ol' Sauseej" is about, well, sausages. It starts of sounding like he's hungry and then you get the feeling that maybe talking about food made him a bit horny, as sausage takes on a different meaning in the second half of the song. Either way, we had a good laugh at it. If you like what you hear below you can download it over here.
Cage The Elephant have paid a visit to Fuel TV and put down a solid performnce of their single "Shake Me Down". We've previously seen that they can lay down this track live on Jimmy Kimmel and David Letterman. When performing in the late night slots the boys just get down to business and for Fuel TV it was no different. It features on their latest album, Thank You, Happy Birthday, and you can pick it up now by simply heading over here. Enjoy another nice performance from the boy above.
Last year Spoon paid a visit to the good people over at La Blogotheque and the guys over there were a little anxious when the band arrived at the venue to play the songs for them. However, the atmosphere in the room at the beginning caused by Britt Daniel seeming a little distant was short lived, as soon as the band began to play the first chord of "The Ghost of You Lingers" the atmosphere changed, and as they put it, there was no need for words. Above you can see why with the performance of that track along with "Got Nuffin" and then after the jump you can check them out performing "Black Like Me". Both were recorded for The Take-Away shows which see's La Blogotheque invite bands tom play in the streets, bars, elevators, and as you see here a café or two for the world to see. Head on over here to check out more of these great performances.
Take a listen to this lovely funky feeling remix of Cold War Kids' new album title track "Mine is Yours", which has been created by the brooklyn based Yeasayer. Courtesy of The Fader you can even grab yourself the download down at the bottom. The original version of the track, "Mine is Yours", features on the brand new album from Cold War Kids which has a few ridiculously catchy tunes on it. This version slows it down a little throwing in some digital retro beats and keys to make a great feeling track. Head on over here to pick yourself up a copy of the new CWK album.

Yesterday, via Stereogum, Das Racist dropped a fresh new track titled "Swate". The track has been produced by Mike Finto with the DR boys doing what they do best and dropping cheeky verses here and there. As well as that they have Lakutis thorwing down a verso too. As Stereogum points out a Heems’s drops lines about snapple caps that we first got a taste of when they did a freestyle/interview for P4K. Check out "Swate" below.
Yesterday the guys from Bad Books, Kevin Devine, Andy Hull and the rest of Mnchester Orchestera uploaded a track that a few of you may be familier with if you caught the band live late last year. Titled "Thanklin Franklin (Fish Ass Baby)", it's never officially been released as a B-Side, yet the band seem to perform it live at most dates they have performed with numerous youtube videos showing the lighter side to the boys. The song see's Kevin rapping, yes rapping! and it's good to see these boys can have a laugh and get down when needs be.
Check it out below, and I'm sure we're going to be seeing more of some members of Bad Books with Manchester Orchestra last week announcing the release date of their new album Simple Math. Enjoy the funny side to Bad Books below via the Favourite Gentleman Soundcloud Page. Just note that on the Soundcloud page theres quite a few recently upped tracks from Andy Hull's solo project Right Away, Great Captain! which is a nice added bonus.
