Twinsmith Release Title Track From Upcoming LP

Twinsmith are set to release their sophomore LP, Alligator Years, on May 5, via Saddle Creek.

In preparation for the release, the band is streaming the album’s title track. Helping many of us escape the winter blues, “Alligator Years” is an upbeat, surf-inspired pop track that is sure to lift some spirits if you are one of the many unfortunate souls currently in the Northeast.

The band just got off of a US tour with Cursive and will be attending this year’s SXSW festival. Be sure to head here to see the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Hozier

Hozier Releases Video for “Someone New”

If Hozier could get any bigger, this song will do it.

After the huge single, “Take Me to Church,” and an incredible performance at The Grammys, Hozier gives us a video for “Someone New.”

This song is arguably more catchy than its predecessor, and maybe more lighthearted. The song discusses brief promiscuity as well as loneliness, but it hides it in its intention. I’ve only listened to it once today, and it’s already stuck in my head for the remainder of my morning.

Also, the video is a steamy narrative that follows a beautiful girl throughout her adventures in night …

The Helio Sequence Announce New Album; Stream “Stoic Resemblance”

The sixth full-length from veteran indie-rockers The Helio Sequence has been announced, after the band’s 2012 release of Negotiations. The self-titled album, which is also self-produced, also has some help on the mixing boards from Greg Calbi, who has worked with Father John Misty and Sleater-Kinney, to name a few. A name drop for sure.

The band mentioned in a press release that via a game called “The 20-song Game,” the album was conceived.

“Songwriters would arrive in their studios at prearranged times and spend all day recording 20 complete songs. When they were finished, they’d have a party, …

Leon Bridges Shares “Coming Home” Music Video

With SXSW less than two weeks away, all eyes are on Leon Bridges and his throwback take on soul music. Having risen to prominence at the end of 2014 thanks to a few strong blog articles, the Dallas native has been sharing new songs every few weeks, and now he’s shared his very first music video.

“Coming Home” is the song that introduced the world to Leon Bridges. It’s a slow and romantic ode to the longing we feel to be near loved ones while we are on the road. Bridges’ vocals sound as if they were lifted from the …

Mumford 'Wild Mind'

Mumford And Sons Announce New Album, ‘Wilder Mind’

Earlier in the day, Mumford and Sons officially ended their longstanding hiatus by announcing that their third full-length album, Wilder Mind, would be arriving on May 4 via Glassnote Records. Check out a teaser for the London quartet’s latest undertaking after the break.

According to lead vocalist Marcus Mumford, the outfit’s forthcoming effort will lack the signature folk elements of 2012′s Babel, as former banjoist Winston Marshall has now embraced the electric guitar full-time.

“We felt that doing the same thing, or the same instrumentation again, just wasn’t for us,” Mumford recently told Rolling Stone. “We’ve …

Action Bronson and Chance The Rapper Share “Baby Blue”

The release of Action Bronson‘s long-awaited debut album is just weeks away, and earlier today the New York native shared a monstrous new single titled “Baby Blue.”

Co-written by Zane Lowe and produced by “Uptown Funk” creator Mark Ronson, the latest cut from Mr. Wonderful finds Action Bronson swapping bars with Chance The Rapper over a piano-heavy beat. It’s a lot lighter in tone than the title may lead you to believe, but there is a sense of heartache in several bars that is far too palpable to ignore. Bronson shines brightest, but Chance’s vocals on the hook …

Kanye West Shares Studio Version Of “All Day”

Following a live premiere during the BRIT awards last week, Kanye West has shared the studio version of “All Day.”

Rumored to be the latest single from West’s highly-anticipated new album, “All Day” is an high energy track that bangs even harder now than it did during its premiere (which came complete with flamethrowers). It’s an ego-fueled, give-no-fucks ode to the crazy level of success, fame, and sophistication Kanye believes to have achieved in his life. Theophilus London and newcomer Allan London help round out the hooks, but when all is said and done it’s only Kanye that people will …

Insurgent-Holes-In-The-Sky

M83 Stream “Holes In The Sky” Featuring HAIM

Whether or not you care about Insurgent, the fast-approaching sequel to the 2014 film Divergent, does not matter right now. The song you’re about to enjoy is taken from the film’s soundtrack, but your personal excitement (or lack thereof) for that particular feature should not impact how you view the song included in this post. It’s awesome, and it would be awesome regardless of how Insurgent performs. Good music is good music, plain and simple.

OKAY. Now that we have all that out of the way, I need to tell you about “Holes In The Sky.” Created by …
