  • Alyeska – “Sister Buckskin”

    Alyeska – “Sister Buckskin”

    Alyeska have shared their third single from their EP Crush, which is coming out today. A cool aura envelops “Sister Buckskin,” a mellow tune filled with tame warped guitars and gentle, quixotic vocals from Alaska Reid. Reid’s airy vocals and cloudy instrumentation make for a breezy daydream of a song. The Los Angeles-based group worked […]

  • alt-J – “In Cold Blood”

    alt-J – “In Cold Blood”

    Alt-J announced their new album, Relaxer, earlier this month with “3WW,” and they’ve unveiled the album’s second single yesterday, “In Cold Blood,” along with a similar glitchy visual accompaniment as the first.

    Jens Lekman – “Your Laugh”

    Jens Lekman recently released a great new album, Life Will See You Now, and yesterday the Swedish musician is offering up his contribution to the anti-Trump Our First 100 Days project. It’s called “Your Laugh,” and it’s a light-hearted song about finding joy in another person that would sound great playing on a beach. “I […]

    Sparks have announced that they’ll put out a new album called Hippopotamus later this year.

The lead single is also the title track, and it’s […]

  • Syd – “Treading Water”

    Syd – “Treading Water”

    We named Syd’s debut solo effort, Fin, Album Of The Week when it dropped back in January, and now the producer/singer is sharing an outtake from that album. Syd tweeted that “Treading Water” was her favorite song on Fin until it was cut from the tracklist. The song was produced by Steve Lacy and Ronald […]

    Tei Shi – “Justify”

    Crawl Space, the debut album from Tei Shi, is just a week away. Today we get one more preview to accompany “Keep Running” and “How Far,” and it adds yet another dimension to the album alongside the former’s swooning synth-pop and the latter’s psychedelic soul. “Justify” is a neon pink funk party that finds Valerie […]

  • The Cool Kids – “TV Dinner”

    The Cool Kids – “TV Dinner”

    Crispy, minimalist Chicago rap greats the Cool Kids went their separate ways for a few years, but they’re back together now and regularly cranking out new bangers like “Connect Four” and the Maxo Kream collab “Running Man.”  And they’ve let loose with a new one called “TV Dinner,” and the track really shows how well […]

  • London Grammar – “Truth Is A Beautiful Thing”

    London Grammar – “Truth Is A Beautiful Thing”

    UK torch-song trio London Grammar released “Rooting For You” in January and “Big Picture” last month, and now it’s official: The follow-up to their 2013 debut is called Truth Is A Beautiful Thing, and it’ll be out in June. That announcement comes with yet another new song, the album’s smoldering slow-burn of a title track. […]

  • Wavves – “Animal”

    Wavves – “Animal”

    Wavves will release a new album in May, and they debuted its latest single yesterday, “Animal.” The track follows “You’re Welcome” and “Daisy,” both of which came out earlier this month. “Animal” is a fuzzy guitar-pop anthem. Now, listen to it below.

  • Adult Mom Shared with the First Single “Full Screen”

    Adult Mom Shared with the First Single “Full Screen”

    We named Adult Mom a Band To Watch based on the strength of their charming and intimate 2015 debut LP, Momentary Lapse Of Happily, and they’ve announced their sophomore album, Soft Spots, and shared its first single, “Full Screen.” It’s a gradual expansion of the group’s sound, and indicative of Stephanie Knipe’s growing confidence in […]
