Songs I Can't Get Out Of My Head: Vol. 11

Lily Allen - "Everyone's At It" 

The first track off her just-released "It's Not Me, It's You" disc, here Allen muses on addiction (specifically in pill form).  

Metric - "Help I'm Alive" 

From the forthcoming album "Fantasies" due out in April, Metric creates a poppy tune that lies somewhere between "Combat Baby" and "Monster Hospital." 

Cut Off Your Hands - "Let's Get Out Of Here"

Already generating pre-SXSW buzz (probably because they're slated to play 10 shows over 4 days), New Zealand act Cut Off Your Hands has a lot on their plate and they're gearing up to tour with Ra Ra Riot and Passion Pit.  With a little tambourine tap, this track, off last year's "You & I" sounds like it was snatched from the Kooks' catalogue.  

MGMT - "Kids (Soulwax Remix)"

There are a ton of MGMT remixes floating around out there (25 of them chronicled by SPIN) -- Soulwax does this one right with some funky breaks usually only reserved for the likes of Hot Chip.  

Volume 11
