EVERYWHERE—If you were too busy actually attending fashion parties to listen to last week's release of Das Racist's song "Fashion Party," may we recommend that you do so now? It includes lyrics like "Garbage bags, Lanvin/why you call it Lan-van/People very educated out here in the Hamptons," and indie band Chairlift singing "I see London, I see France/Where'd you get yourself those pants?/I can't tell if you want to hit me or if you want to dance." [Stereogum]
