Here’s yet another TV Girlsong from their upcoming The Wild, The Innocent, The TV Shuffle mixtape. This one’s called It Evaporates and it’s a slower tempo doo-wop style song that you could easily imagine being ripped right from the unreleased demos of any 60’s girl group. Download. (via)
Finally something to hold onto from this new PS I Love You album! This is a track called Don’t Go and even if you’ve never been a fan of the band’s vocal work, you can’t deny the instrumentation on this one. It’s definitely reminiscent of Japandroids at their best, so check it out. The album, Death Dreams, is out May 8th.
Purity Ring just released the first song from their upcoming debut, Shrines. It’s called Obedear and it’s way better than the admittedly dull Belispeak; It’s almost like Grimes and Crystal Castles teamed up on this one. Download.
Outer Limitz (Formerly Outer Limits Recordings) have cleaned up their act in a big way. Not only can you actually understand and discern the lyrics now, they’ve pushed in a far more electronic-sample based direction akin to Purity Ring. This is I Kontact.
Here’s a track from TV Girl's upcoming mixtape The Wild, The Innocent, The TV Shuffle. It’s an upbeat jam called Misery and it’s about about being depressed, like all the best songs are. Download. (via)
Yuck just released a new song called Chew and it’s one of the best since Get Away. Definitely a Smashing Pumpkins vibe on this one. Looks like their cover artist has gotten better is well, and thank christ for that.
TV Girl are releasing their debut album for free in a matter of weeks. And here’s the first taste, a upbeat retro-tinged jam about heartbreak called I Wonder Who She’s Kissing Now. I really, really hope they don’t pull a Summer Camp with this one and release a terrible album with one deceptively good first single. Download.
I’ll be honest here, Dive have gone from a “I’m sure some Beach Fossils fans will get a kick out of this by default” courtesy post, to one of the few bands at the moment with a truly exciting build up to their debut LP.
Each new track shows a them taking one step closer to stepping out of the shadow of their main project, and now, even more than Heavenly Beat; who had a much stronger start, they are truly their own beast. How Long Have You Known? is the certainly the zenith of this transformation. Download.
Teen Daze's next single from his All Of Us Together release is called The Future. He says it’s the only track on the album with vocals, so it looks like it’s shaping up to be more like his My Bedroom Floor release than anything else. You know what to expect here; dreamy, bubbling synths and an overwhelming sense of nostalgia and wistfulness.
