Download This: Songs by Madonna, and others

Bloc Party, ”Two More Years”
Of all the recent new-wave-inspired acts springing out of Robert Smith’s pouffy ‘do, Bloc Party exhibit a unique conviction. Their sad-eyed new single is an Internet exclusive. Buy the track at emusic

Madonna, ”Hung Up”
She may be 47 years old, but Madonna continues to mystically defy time and space with the new ABBA-sampling dance-floor explosion. It’s easily her most infectious confection in years. Buy the track on iTunes

The Ark, ”Trust Is Shareware”
Sweden’s the Ark meld Elvis Costello’s crisp, caustic hooks and Queen’s charismatic overindulgences on their computer-jargon-meets-arena-rock anthem. Download the track for free at the Ark’s site

Cut Copy, ”Future”
Incorporating vintage ’80s sounds — cheesy drum-machine snare hits, squiggly keyboard bursts — dance rockers Cut Copy mine the past to see the ”Future” on this online-only remix. Download the track for free at Modular People Records
