Download: Pfunkt "Against All Evens"

Warped synth lines, quivering electronics, and guest vocals by French Horn Rebellion's Robert Perlick-Molinari converge on the first single from Pfunkt's self-titled debut longplayer, and it's a rather brooding affair. Pfunkt will be available as a pay-what-you-want download on February 14.

Download: Exclusive: Lithops "Dear Dorant"

At times this track—a part of Lithops' new, limited-edition collection of sound installation works he's dubbed Ye Viols!—is a lo-fi parade of clicks, ratatats, and undulating synths. During other instances, it sounds more akin to a telephone that's been left off the hook. Behold, "Dear Dorant." Ye Viols! is out now on Thrill Jockey.

Download: Faunts "Feel.Love.Thinking.Of. (Mexicans with Guns Remix)"

2009's busiest remixer, Mexicans with Guns, takes this epic, cinematic, and decidedly shoegaze track from Faunts and whips it into a bass-heavy, ghettotech frenzy.

Download: Zombie Nation "Filterjerks"

Label: UKW

German producer Zombie Nation (a.k.a Florian Senfter) is stepping away from his aggravated, riot-inspiring footie jam status (à la "Kernkraft 400") with this twisty, mod-funk techno offering. Fortunately, this one calls for more than just jumping up and down in a raucous group embrace while trying not to spill your lager. Off ZN's forthcoming album, Zombielicious, out in March on UKW.

Download: Malente&Dex "Heatwave"

Label: Exploited

If you didn't wake up this morning ready to rave, this synth-drenched track oozing with handclaps, from Exploited boys Malente&Dex, should ramp you up for some weekend mayhem. Stay tuned for the boys' upcoming mini-tour with Exploited boss Shir Khan. Check the Exploited Records MySpace page for details.

Download: Ghislain Poirier "Go Ballistic (WILDLIFE Re-Rub)"

Switzerland-based producer and remixer WILDLIFE got ahold of this track—which originally appeared on Ghislain Poirier's No Ground Under album—and the resulting remix is a cross between something fit for dark, dirty clubs and some strange video game.

Download: Boy in Static "Young San Francisco"

Label: Fake Four

Simultaneously light-hearted and despondent, the first single off Boy in Static's Candy Cigarette makes for a palate of strings, pianos, and electro synths served over a hefty dose of electronic bleeps. Candy Cigarette is out April 17 on Fake Four
