1. Crystal Castles feat. Robert Smith – ‘Not In Love’
This is definitely the most exciting collaboration to pop up on the web this week. Crystal Castles just released an updated version of their song, this time with vocals from The Cure’s Robert Smith.

2. Weezer – ‘Unbreak My Heart’ (Toni Braxton cover)
It’s probably one of the most classic songs of the ‘90s, and Weezer surprised us with a rather good cover of the Toni Braxton hit. Rivers Cuomo posted the track (recorded five years ago) on his band’s message board this week. It will be appearing on their upcoming rarities album, ‘Death To False Metal’, available in the UK next Monday.
3. Major Lazer – ‘Who Run De Floor On Halloween’ (AnimalStatuS remix)
If you’ve still got a bit more Halloween spirit left in you, then you’ll enjoy this track that Diplo shared on his Twitter a few days ago as a “special Halloween treat”. Enjoy this ghoulish remix of Major Lazer’s ‘Pon De Floor’ from AnimalStatus.
