Last week Röyksopp and Robyn announced they were going on tour together. This makes sense as they’ve worked together much in the past. Now they’ve announced they will release a new mini-album (only 5 songs) called Do It Again on May 26 via Cherrytree/Interscope Records.
Here’s what Röyksopp had to say about the album:
This 5 track mini-album is the accumulation and embodiment of the synergy between Robyn and ourselves. We’ve intended this to be a diverse yet cohesive and thought through musical venture; it’s meant to be an expression where pop & art reign side by side.
This doesn’t sound like Röyksopp featuring Robyn or Robyn produced by Röyksopp, it’s just something else entirely
This announcement came with a snippet preview of one of album track “Monument.” It’s only about a minute and a half, but it’s enough to give you a taste. It’s sounding quite good.
“Keep Your Eyes Peeled” is a new track from Queens Of The Stone Age’s upcoming …Like Clockwork, which comes out June 3 via Matador. It’s a great track and it gets another really cool animated clip by Boneface to go along with it. It’s creepy and very violent in a Tarantino type of way.
Queens Of The Stone Age’s new album …Like Clockwork comes out June 4 via Matador Records. You already got to cherish first single “My God Is The Sun” by now. Now they’ve given us 1/2 of a new song. Today they have uploaded the first three-minutes of the six-minute long track “I Appear Missing.”

Amazon has a 30 second preview of The Strokes first single from Comedown Machine, “All The Time”. Head here to check that out. Despite your thoughts on “One Way Trigger”, we can usually trust that the first single from The Strokes is usually a good one.
Based on the clip, it’s sounding more like The Strokes do without falsetto.

Not too much is known yet about Empress Of, except that it’s led by Brooklyn’s Lorely Rodriguez. She’s been teasing it with youtube clips and this website. That is until she shared her debut track “Don’t Tell Me” today. It comes just in time, as her first performance will be at the Gorilla vs. Bear/Yours Truly showcase that will take place at 285 Kent this Thursday.
Enjoy some delightful female electronic work that is powerful and pretty damn sensual. Something tells me that this girl may explode next year in the same way that Grimes did this year. Great vocals and insane production that is a great start to a promising career.

“White Dress’ is a new song that Kanye West is giving to the soundtrack of The Man With The Iron Fists, the RZA’s film. There’s a 60 second preview available to listen to right now. From what I can hear – and like everyone else is saying – it’s sounding like classic Kanye.
It’s official, we will be covering the Pitchfork Music Festival this year. I made the trip to Bonnaroo just a few weeks ago, and now I am making my first trip to the windy city to see what the Pitchfork Festival has to offer.
Now who am I looking forward to seeing? Well, pretty much everyone. But seriously, here’s a little rundown of the artists I’m putting at top priority come the weekend on July 13-15: Read the rest of this entry »
