ALBUM STREAM: Twin Peaks – ‘Wild Onion’

Chicago’s youth ain’t got nothin’ on its under-21 fellows Twin Peaks. The four-piece pop rock group will drop their sophomore release, Wild Onion, on August 5, and it’s not just Chicago that’s cheering them on. In anticipation, they’ve put the whole rowdy, riffy, jovial record up for streaming on Pitchfork Advance.

After seeing their set at Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend, there was no denying they know what they’re doing. From tossing a guitar into the crowd first thing in the morning or yelling every lyric in their hometown’s backyard, Twin Peaks were on fire. That’s what …

Spoon They Want My soul

ALBUM STREAM: Spoon – ‘They Want My Soul’

Spoon’s new album, They Want My Soul, finally comes out on August 5 via Loma Vista. It’s been four years since 2010′s Transference and almost 10 months since they announced a new album was on the way. Now, at last, the album can be streamed in full at iTunes Radio.

Adult Jazz

Stream Adult Jazz’s Excellent Debut LP ‘Gist Is’

Leeds four-piece Adult Jazz shared a video titled “Community Rhythms” two weeks ago that got our attention from its first few seconds. After watching a pile of humans tumble out of a white van, gather round in a school gym, and bust out a drum circle while frontman Harry Burgess ropes around them singing, we couldn’t help but obsess over what we just saw. Was this group therapy? A brilliant combo of folk, roots, and pop? A cult disguised as a band? After a lot of deliberation and even more online stalking, we found the answer: it was …

Mega Bog

Mega Bog Announce Debut Album ‘Gone Banana,’ Stream “Year of Patience”

After 5 years of self-released material and re-writing songs, Mega Bog are finally ready to share their debut album. Titled Gone Banana, the album drops September 23 via Couple Skate and showcases the group’s lo-fi jazz rock sound. Finally, a band you and your dad can agree on.

With Kevin Ayers and Steely Dan influences, the band have traces of psychedelia and mall jazz in their songs while keeping the songwriting core tender. Lead single “Year of Patience” introduces the band nicely with a strutting saxophone line and Erin Birgy’s coy vocals, taking on the sounds of Ariel Pink, Prefab …

ALBUM STREAM: Bear In Heaven – ‘Time Is Over One Day Old’

We’ve already heard opening track “Almost” and their first single “Time Between.” Now they’re streaming the album two weeks early at NPR’s First Listen.

The new record highlights older ’80s synth as the band turns inward to look at their own delicate abilities and the fragile nature of emotions. As their press release notes, it’s an opportunity to hear the band at peace as they’ve “learned to cut back on that which …

Flying Lotus Announces New Album ‘You’re Dead!’ and Tour

California electronic musician and producer Flying Lotus is undeniably talented. He creates sweeping trip-hop-infused electronic beats and funk-laced rhythms that speak from the soul, although maybe that’s because he’s related to John Coltrane. Earlier this year he shared previously unheard material and a music video for “Phantasm,” but now we finally get word of new material. On October 7, Flying Lotus will drop a new album titled You’re Dead! via Warp. Heads up: it’s going to be incredible.

The follow-up album to 2012′s excellent Until the Quiet Comes has been teased for some time now. In November …

They reminded us why we love them with their uber catchy lead single “Start Again,” and now they’re keeping us wrapped around their finger with “Why I Had To Go.”

“Why I Had To Go” has an effortless smile strung on its face, reminding us why we first fell in love with Bishop Allen back in 2003. The single starts with punchy keys that lean back gently when …
