Download This: Songs by Common, and others

COMMON, ”GO! (LIVE)”
Capping off an exceptional year, the Chicago rapper offers a three-song live EP exclusively online. The MC’s unrelenting energy and some fresh instrumentation give new life to the insistent hit ”Go!” Buy the track on iTunes

ELECTRIC PRESIDENT, ”INSOMNIA”
Low-key drum loops, precious piano, and delicate vocals mark this dreamy track, a gorgeous bit of indie pop from two Floridian newcomers. Lush and dreamy, it’s as inviting as your favorite pillow. Download it for free at Morr Music

PIXIES, ”DEBASER (LIVE)”
Long-suffering Pixies fans went gaga when their heroes reunited to tour in 2004. A 28-track Web-only album culled from the comeback trek — including a blistering take on ”Debaser” — will keep them ecstatic. Buy it at Emusic

JJ APPLETON, ”DOWNLOADER’S BLUES”
”All I wanted was rock & roll, but I ended up in this dingy hole,” laments this song’s lockedup, MP3-hungry narrator. But don’t worry, this goofy rocker is totally legal. Download it for free at JJ Appleton’s site
