We’re almost a month away from the release of Black Lips’ new record, Underneath the Rainbow, which drops on March 18 on Vice Records. It’s their first full length album in three years and following up their single ”Boys In The Wood” and its accompanying video (It’s crazy, watch it here), they’re back with “Justice After All.” 

You can stream the new track above and catch them on tour this spring. Pre-order Underneath the Rainbow on iTunes now.


Come Alive by Chromeo ft/ Toro Y Moi


The best song of 2k14 got a dope video.

Sexy mannequins y’all 


Away Too Long by The Airplanes



I got an email lately from my buddy Andrew Donovan from Fayetteville, Arkansas telling me about this great solo artist he discovered randomly online, but Joshua Vest's music 

"Josh told me he’s been recording this stuff at home by himself and doesn’t have a live band yet. I replied and told him that if he needs a guitar player to hit me up. About a month later we had our first practice. The other members are Joel Paul, from the band Swimming, on bass and Rob Storms on drums. It’s a little poppier than [my project] Voyageurs.”

Get this one hot off the press on the Sndcld, and look for more singles and a bit of touring this summer. I can see these boys going far!



I’m Not Part of Me by Cloud Nothings


Bullet Train by Gardens & Villa


From the first notes this song captivates and intrigues. A drum beat that is a direct nod to Prince’s “When Doves Cry”, a flute solo worthy of Ron Burgundy and campy 80’s synths that could be from the B-side of an ABC or Tears for Fears album. While this sounds like a recipe for disaster, amazingly the song’s catchy electo-dance hooks and falsetto swoons are impossible not to love. From the band’s new album, Dunes.   



ARCADE FIRE @ 2013 Bridge School Benefit (10.26.13)

Last night, on the first night of the 2013 Bridge School Benefit, Arcade Fire played a short set and debuted a new song inspired by a dream that Win Butler had in which he basically played a song in his mind, then awoke and transcribed it, realizing that it sounded like a Neil Young jam. In turn, the band got Young to sit in on the performance and you can check it out on the complete webcast of the show. Of course, the entire showcase takes over eight hours and there is a lot to see and love about the series which is a benefit to help children with severe speech and physical challenges. Each show is an acoustic affair, so you get to see some of your favorite artists stripped back and playing new versions of old favorites. Including in this particular webcast are sets from Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young (reunion), Queens of the Stone Age, My Morning Jacket, Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis, Heart, Diana Krall, fun., Jack Johnson, and of course, Arcade Fire. 

* The Arcade Fire set begins at 5:45:00 (the new song begins at 6:07:00). 

Arcade Fire sounds so good like this.
