Published Oct 25, 2010Every Monday, we here at Exclaim! try to help you deal with the start of the week in the best way we know how: our weekly Click Hear roundup.
First up, Japanese pop exports the Suzan have covered "Paranoid" by Kanye West, stripping down the 808s and Heartbreak track and making it their very own. But be warned: it's seriously addictive. In other covers, Mark Ronson has taken a crack at "We Used to Wait" by Arcade Fire. Check out the redo, complete with mandolin and funk guitar.
Daft Punk (pictured) created a lot of excitement last week in New York when they made a surprise visit at the Phoenix concert in Madison Square Garden. Check out live concert footage of "If I Ever Feel Better" and "1901" with the robotic duo at the decks. And while we only recently learned about the Bad Religion tribute album, Bad Religion Germs of Perfection: A Tribute to Bad Religion, you can now grab the entire 12-track affair, which features covers by the Weakerthans, Ted Leo, and Tegan and Sara, among others.
Known for their fuzzy, lo-fi sounds, L.A.'s Best Coast have released a new music video for "Boyfriend" from their debut full-length Crazy for You. But if you're looking for something a little more epic, watch Kanye West's new 35-minute film Runaway, which has only helped Ye push that hype machine into further overdrive.
Lastly, October 20 saw the passing of the Slits' Ari Up, the legendary vocalist and all-around trailblazer. As per Up's wishes, the band have posthumously released the video for "Lazy Slam" from the group's 2009 LP Trapped Animal.
