The latest in a series of mix-ups.

Here is the second round of tunes I came across or have been giving extra love this week. Here is the track list along with the download link.

Bo Diddley-The Gunslinger
In honor of his recent passing. Bo don't know Diddley..

Dennis Wilson-The River Song & Ocean Pacific Blues
This often overlooked album from overlooked Beach Boy has just been re-issued.

Koushik-The Sun
This summer jam from the StonesThrow label feels like inner-city Phil Spector.

The Virgins-Rich Girls
The tightest pants outta the NYC with this bouncy throwback gem. (#1 this week)

Smith-I just wanna make love to you
A trashy classic meant to be played at full crank.

Britt Daniels-Bring it on
The lead singer of Spoon brings something fresh to the Sam Cooke classic.

Jens Lenkman-You can call me Al
This weird cover of Paul Simon is from a radio show in Sweden and is a staple at his shows.

Get Well Soon-Born Slippy
A cover of Scotland's Underworld club classic of Trainspotting fame. Not just a great cover but we finally get to hear what the hell he is singing. (Next up Louis Louis)

Fela Kuti-Mr.Grammaticalogylisationalism
The king of Nigeria gets his funk on in the name of English grammar.
