Lower – Lost Weight, Perfect Skin

By Will Oliver, April 3rd 2014


Copenhagen’s Lower have signed with Matador Records, who will release the band’s debut album, Seek Warmer Climes on June 17.

Below you can stream “Lost Weight, Perfect Skin”, the album’s first single. It’s a punk-minded track with guitars that ring home with a sense of urgent despair that can’t be shaken. There’s something about the way that singer Adrian Toubro’s delivers his vocals that is highly effective, working his magic on you effectively well.

If you were previously unfamiliar with Lower, think of this as your proper introduction.

[new]: Cut Copy – In These Arms Of Love

By Will Oliver, April 3rd 2014


(Cut Copy @ Terminal 5)

On Record Store Day (April 19), Cut Copy will release a brand new song called “In These Arms Of Love.” You don’t have to wait that long to hear the track though, as an early stream has graced our presence.

In typical Cut Copy fashion they aim high for the stars on the track. It’s both heavy on the electronic effects as well as the ambition. These guys can do now wrong.

Hope you’re able to find yourself a copy come RSD. Stream it below.

[new]: How To Dress Well – Repeat Pleasure

By Will Oliver, April 3rd 2014

How To Dress Well

How To Dress Well has shared a new track called “Repeat Pleasure”, the latest from his newly announced album “What Is This Heart?” The LP is out June 24 via Weird World. This comes after “Words I Don’t Remember.”

“Repeat Pleasure” is a glossy track that showcases Tom Krell’s artistic growth. Well produced and full of emotion, only in a more upbeat poppy manner. “Repeat Pleasure” is an appropriate name, for sure.

Enjoy it below.

Alexis Taylor

Hot Chip frontman/vocalist Alexis Taylor has announced his first solo album in nearly six years (since 2008′s Rubbed Out). It’s titled Await Barbarians and will be released via Domino Records on June 10.

“Elvis Has Left The Building” is the first track that Taylor has previewed off the album, and it’s a lovely affair. An intimate ballad of sorts, Taylor lets hit voice do the work over some light piano chords with some minor electronic effects and hi-hat taps.

Give it a try below.

Janelle Monae – Heroes (David Bowie Cover)

Janelle Monae Heroes

As a a part of Pepsi’s “Beats of the Beautiful Game” ad campaign, Janelle Monáe has covered David Bowie’s legendary track “Heroes.”

She gives it a more modern spin that is very much hers. I’m admit that I’m a bit mixed on it, but I respect the vision that she went in with on it.

Check out Janelle Monáe’s version below, followed by Bowie’s.

Hamilton Leithauser

Hamilton Leithauser’s debut solo album Black Hours will now come out on June 3 instead of it’s original release date, May 6 (via Ribbon Music). It’s available to pre-order now, with a deluxe edition as an option.

Leithauser has followed up first single “Alexandra” with “11 O’Clock Friday Night.” There’s a strong familiarity to his work with The Walkmen here with a tropical twist, xylophone and all. It also features some light vocals (very light) from Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman. It’s a winner, another solid sign of things to come from the rest of Black Hours.

It’s available to stream  below. I’ve also shared the official music video, which was directed by The Walkmen’s guitarist Paul Maroon.

“11 O’Clock Friday Night” Music Video:


Parquet Courts have shared the details of their new album. It’s called Sunbathing Animal and out June 3 via What’s Your Rupture?/Mom + Pop.

They’ve shared the first single and title track, a ball of energy that comes right at your bursting hard out of the gate. I can already imagine myself moshing along to this in the crowd at Brooklyn’s Sugarhill Supper Club this summer. Tickets for that show are still on sale. Get them while you can.

Stream “Sunbathing Animal” below. Catch the album tracklist and their 2014 tour dates below that.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Soundtrack

I’m excited to see what Marc Webb does with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, mainly to see how he balances all the different villains set to appear in the film. I was so focused on the film that I didn’t pay much attention the its soundtrack.

There’s an Alaicia Keys contribution on it called “It’s On Again” that features Kendrick Lamar. He kicks it off with an absolutely vicious and raw verse, before handing it back to Keys, who delivers a typically safe pop song. It’s 100% worth diving into just to hear Lamar tear into it as if it’s his last effort.

Find it below. Read the rest of this entry »

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah -

Only Run is the new album from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and it’s out June 3 (they’re self-releasing it). They’ve let go of the album’s first single, a heavy hitting track that features the vocals of the one and only Matt Berninger (of The National).

It’s weird hearing the strained vocals of CYHSY’s Alec Ounsworth and the deep rich vocals of Matt Berninger working together and even dueting. As a longtime fan of both bands, it’s a very cool (if not surreal) moment.

Stream it below and head to the song’s soundcloud page to grab a free mp3 download.
