Starting today, iTunes will let you pre-order the Big Pink's January 17 album Future This, and the band is celebrating by a) unleashing a Forest Swords remix of "Hit the Ground (Superman)" and b) telling SPIN their five fave albums of 2011.

First, the remix: It can be downloaded here, via Beggars.

Next, Milo Cordell's best of '11 list:
Deptford Goth - Youth II
The Weeknd - House of Balloons
Kurt Vile - Smoke Ring for My Halo
The Horrors - Skying
Zomby - Dedication

We'd also recommend reading our exclusive interview, where Cordell explains, "Whether it's Britney Spears or Aaliyah or Nirvana or Smashing Pumpkins, it's all pop music. I think they all made big, conscious pop records and I think we've done the same."

Last, why not watch the video for "Stay Gold" again, too:
