Another week, another Mercury music section to gently flip through while you are being lectured by your doctor about the dangers of headbanging. I for one hope the future is not full of elderly heshers in neck braces.

Talib Kweli teams up with DJ Hi-Tek for a new Reflection Eternal album. Now that he's done that, this means a Black Star reunion is next, right? Right? Oh god please say it is.
LISTEN:

Reflection Eternal - "Midnight Hour" (feat. Estelle)

I might have been a little hard on MGMT, but have you actually heard Congratulations? It's so bad it hurts. I hope the hatemail I receive from MGMT fans is vowel-free.
LISTEN:

MGMT - "Flash Delirium"

Now for a popular New York act that fails to disappoint, LCD Soundsystem. It's been a few weeks of constant play and This Is Happening still holds up. Now let's just hope James Murphy was kidding when he said it might be his last record.
LISTEN:

LCD Soundsystem - "I Can Change"

LISTEN:

Citay - "Careful With That Hat"
