    Oh Dan Lopatin (better known as Oneohtrix Point Never), you might be the last person I'd expect to shake me out of a mid-day funk, but the man who gave us one of last year's best albums (but also one of its mellowest), Replica, managed to do it. Like Beck, he did his own cover of the 1934 classic track "I Only Have Eyes for You" and turned it into an experimental, avant-garde beauty. Ambient minimalism doesn't sound exciting and this track isn't going to make you want to mosh or tap your toes, but if you can appreciate ephemeral, open-ended tunes, check out Oneohtrix Point Never's gorgeous take on this American standard.
