Those randy Scots in FRANZ FERDINAND ask ”Do You Want To” on their brash, disco-rattling single. With their white-boy funk and sizable sass still blissfully intact, we offer a resounding yes. ITUNES.COM

It’s impossible to overestimate the influence of Long Island hip-hop politicos PUBLIC ENEMY. So take heed when they urge you to ”Bring That Beat Back” on this new hard-charging online exclusive. EMUSIC.COM

Fans of ax-grinding, female-led gatecrashers like the Breeders and Veruca Salt have a reason to look on ”The Bright Side,” thanks to SPACE MTN and their mondo-chorus neck snapper. SPACEMTN.COM/SOUNDS.HTML

Electronic click-clacks rise from the ether while CLUE TO KALO mastermind Mark Mitchell sings the folky ”As Tommy Fixes Fights,” a free track from his upcoming album, One Way, It’s Every Way. DIRTYLOOP.COM
