arcade fire : afterlife + flashbub eyes (kimmel)

don't sleep on this record, people. it may take a few listens to get your bearings, but it's worth the effort.

los campesinos! : avocado, baby (video)

one shot.

king krule : easy easy (letterman)

x-men: days of future past (trailer)

a lot of characters and a twisty plot, but also a cast with some of the best, award-winning actors in the biz. here's to hoping singer can pull it off.

efterklang : between the walls (video)

anchorman 2 (trailer)

robin pecknold + daniel rossen : corduroy (fallon)

robin pecknold (fleet foxes) and daniel rossen (grizzly bear) cover pearl jam's "corduroy" (the first pearl jam song i ever really got in to) for fallon. it's not bad, but if i'm being honest, this song is nothing without vedder's throat shredding growls.

the belle game : river (video)

video for one of my favorite songs in a long while.

kurt vile : feel my pain (download)

this one winds and bends. no giant hook to hang your hat on, but if you listen closely, you'll hear a few wiggling around there. download below.

mutual benefit : advanced falconry (stream)

p4k cites early animal collective and sufjan stevens as signifiers here, and that's not far off. i hear a little of the boy least likely to as well. take a listen to the lovely, autumnally-vibed "advanced falconry" below.

the head and the heart : let's be still (album stream)

stream the head and the heart's sophomore effort over on soundcloud. track for track, it's a more listenable record than the band's debut, but there aren't really any standout tracks. the whole thing is a little boring, to be honest. but take a listen and judge for yourself whether this band lives up to the hype it achieved on its first go around.

supreme cuts : gone (ft. mahaut mondino) (stream)

another beautiful r&b-ish house track from chicago duo supreme cuts. check it.

los campesinos! : avocado, baby (stream)

another one off no blues. love these guys.

moonface : love the house you're in (video)

another song from moonface's upcoming julia with blue jeans on. (as a reminder, moonface is spencer krug, one half of wolf parade's frontman duo). the whole album is just spencer, his voice and a piano, and it seems like it's going to be quite the beautiful affair. check the video below.

hear the previously released "everyone is noah, everyone is the ark" over here.

sounds like a new record is on the way...
