night beds : head for the hills (stream)

so this explains that mysterious trailer: new night beds song! no word yet on whether this is building up to something more.

explosions in the sky + eluvium = inventions

here's a trailer for the team-up album, which comes out this april.

night beds : head for the hills (album teaser?)

a link to this vimeo was posted by night beds on twitter with no explanation. maybe an ep or lp preview? more likely a one-off single. this would be the followup to the band's underacknowledged 2013 debut, country sleep (one of my favorite albums of the year).

real estate : talking backwards (video)

first taste of the forthcoming atlas. the band's (excellent) sophomore effort days felt like an "autumn" record, and it sounds like this one will have a "summer" feel.
