Twin Peaks Wild Onion

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 …

Slipknot

Slipknot Keep It Creepy (And Sort Of Pointless) With Latest Album Teaser

I’m starting to believe that if you have seen one promotional video for the new Slipknot album you have more or less seen them all. It’s (k)not that I am (k)not excited for the new album, it’s just that I saw The Ring pull the same creepy motion effect a decade ago and as far as I can tell none of the nonsensical horror themed visuals we have seen thus far are attempting to tell any kind of story.

TL;DR: I don’t really ‘get it.’

All that said, a fourth teaser for the new album from Slipknot quietly found its …

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.

The 10-track full-length is the first time Spoon has used an outside producer (Joe Chiccarelli [My Morning Jacket, Beck, The Strokes] and Dave Fridmann [The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev]), the first time frontman Britt Daniel incorporated a new-found obsession with classic rock staples AC/DC and The Rolling …

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 …

Secret Band

Secret Band Release Lyric Video for New Track, “Projectile Comet”

Dance Gavin Dance side project Secret Band have been serving up a ton of new music for fans recently. Just two weeks after the release of their self-titled EP on June 3, the band announced that they had finished tracking an entirely new record, and provided a stream for a new track called “Delete The Believer.” Today, Secret Band released a lyric video for yet another new track entitled “Projectile Comet,” which you will find below the jump.

Both releases have been provided courtesy of Property of Zack, and the Secret Band EP is available on the group’s Bandcamp

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’

Brooklyn synth rock band Bear In Heaven are putting out their newest full-length, Time Is Over One Day Old, on August 5 via Dead Oceans/Hometapes. 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 …

MUSIC VIDEO: Maybeshewill – “In Amber”

We last heard from UK post-rock outfit Maybeshewill in 2011 when they debuted a quintessential record in the form of I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone. After three years of patiently waiting for even a glimpse of new material to follow up the monumental release, the band have finally unveiled “In Amber,” the first cut from their forthcoming full-length, Fair Youth. After listening through the track multiple times, it quickly becomes apparent it was more than well worth the wait as it just might be the most mature piece of music Maybeshewill have written to …

Required Listening: Angus & Julia Stone – “Grizzly Bear”

Every so often a song arrives in my inbox from a group that not only captures my attention, but somehow manages to hold onto it throughout the majority of any given work day. I stumbled upon one such track early this morning, and in the hours that have passed since its initial discovery I have spun that song at least a dozen times. Now, having finally finished my dance party for one, I’m ready to share it with you.

Angus & Julia Stone are currently preparing to release their new self-titled, Rick Rubin-produced album on August 1. Today, the duo …
