? Lots of funny, twisted imagery tumbles from KIMYA DAWSON?s ”Loose Lips.” Monsters under the bed. Drop-kicking candy maven Russell Stover. Even a few jabs at the president. KIMYADAWSON.COM

? You can be a devoted DVD convert and still love VHS OR BETA, or so we?ve concluded from ”Night on Fire,” which sounds akin to an old Cure song caught in a disco inferno. You know, like Interpol. ASTRALWERKS.COM

? Remember THE PRODIGY?s ”Firestarter”? Well, ”Girls” is nothing like that. Think Prince-style funk, Fannypack, and grime mashed up into a hot, fuzzy dance track. MAVERICKRECORDS.COM/SOUNDSYSTEM/
