lana del rey : young & beautiful (stream)

a new one, lana's contribution to the great gatsby soundtrack.

daft punk (ft. pharrell) : fist in the air (stream)

mgmt tease new single...

...with an excellently trippy video. if you liked oracular but didn't like congratulations, i have a feeling you might not really vibe with this new song/album.

superman (trailer)

so christopher owens, frontman of the now defunct band girls, released a solo album that was decent, but a little too flowery at times. he is re-releasing it in acoustic form (presumably just spanish guitar and vocals) for free tomorrow. listen to a track over at spin to see if that's something you're interested in.

sapphire slows : keep beating (stream)

recommended if you like grimes.

drake : girls love beyonce (mp3)

drake :: girls love beyonce

foxygen (blogotheque)

mistaken for strangers (trailer)

this is a national mockumentary/documentary (i think). some of this narrative/drama seems constructed. looks interesting.

poliça ft. justin vernon : tiff (stream)

a moody gayngs-vibed jam.

night beds : ramona (crypt sessions)

pretty #chill version here. but it took me almost the whole video to realize that this wasn't the full band, only singer/guitarist plus light drums. just goes to show how much weight that expressive buckley-esque voice can carry.

the veils : turn from the rain (abbey road)

bell x1 : starlings over brighton pier (stream)

fun fact: bell x1 are the second most played band in ireland on radio ever (i would suspect u2 holds the number one spot).

cat power : bully (jools)

a new one from cat power, this type of cp tune will always be my favorite.

born ruffians : birthmarks (album stream)

may be too soon to say for sure, but it feels like born ruffians are back in fighting form. listen to the album over here.

the national : demons (stream)

new national. sounds like old national. which is good if you like the national.

phoenix : entertainment (homemade video)

m83 : oblivion soundtrack (album stream)

for those that didn't know, m83 scored the new dystopian future tom cruise vehicle, oblivion. listen to it here. it's very good.

night beds : my kind of woman (mp3)

night beds (who released one of my favorite albums of the year) is giving away two free covers via aquarium drunkard. both lovely, but "my kind of woman" is the standout.

night beds :: my kind of woman (mac demarco cover)

night beds :: no other love (jo stafford cover)

sigur ros : brennisteinn (video)

sigur ros sounding a bit industrial in this track from their upcoming album.

valentina : ladders (stream)

just a really good song.

still corners : berlin lovers (video)

the video is as much of a jam as the song is.

gambles : far from your arms (stream)

a spare voice + guitar folk jam for those that are into that sort of thing. it takes a little patience to appreciate, but if you give it time to build and hold out to the end, you can start to hear the cracks and creaks in the singer's voice that make this type of music so affecting in the first place.

deerhunter : monomania (stream)

the title track from deerhunter's forthcoming album, a scuzzy little garage banger a la the black lips, is coming in hot. it's over five minutes long, but be warned: the last three and a half minutes is just bradford cox yelling "mono-monomania" over and over and over again, backed by increasingly cacophonous drums and guitar squeals.
