Stream Lykke Li’s New Single, “Gunshot”

Indie songstress Lykke Li has released her third single, “Gunshot,” off her upcoming third studio album today. The single takes more of a sodden pop route, tracing heartbroken lyrics out in a pretty produced, anthemic piece of sweeping vocals and sturdy guitar work. All in all, it sounds in line with her other work while ditching some of the old hooks.

The album, titled I Never Learn, is slated to come out May 5 via LL/Atlantic Records. So far we’ve also heard “Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone” and “No Rest For The Wicked

LISTEN: New Mastodon Single “High Road”

Click through to listen to the track, since you know you’re going to want to sing along when the band kicks off their North American tour with Gojira and Kvelertak in less than two weeks. Once More Round The Sun is expected to be released sometime this summer.…

Daphni (Caribou) and Owen Pallett Team Up On Two New Songs

Electronic musician Daphni (Dan Snaith of Caribou) and Canadian renaissance man Owen Pallett have collaborated on a split single, “Julia” b/w “Tiberius,” that’s up for streaming now via FACT. They’re exactly what you would imagine: dance-worthy tracks that progress somewhat slowly, intertwining Pallett’s violin beautifully and, at times, eerily. It’s exactly what we didn’t know we needed.

If you feel like lyric-less music just needs to be loud to be experienced properly, think again. Snaith tweeted some advice on how to listen the songs at their fullest. We vote follow his word.…

In a little over a month, Little Dragon will be putting out Nabuma Rubberband, their first album in three years. The follow-up to 2011′s nearly perfect Ritual Union is shaping up to be quite a release, as heard by lead single “Klapp Klapp” and now “Paris.”

Hear Unreleased Chance the Rapper Song “The Writer”

Chance the Rapper has been on a roll this past month. He shared the “special” new song “Home Studio (Back in This Bitch),” began collaborating with Skrillex, and now he’s shared an unheard, older song that keeps his name in check.

The song, titled “The Writer,” is from 2012 and was done in collaboration with the production collective THEMpeople. To put it in context, that means this is from the same era as his 10 Day mixtape days. It’s a beautiful piano beat by Apollo Brown that makes his rap about his struggle to the top all …

tUnE-yArDs Shares New Single “Wait for a Minute”

Freak folk group tUnE-yArDs announced last month that a new album would be coming out May 6 via 4AD. The album, called Nikki Nackwill be a brighter, more accessible sound than the previous two albums. With the new single shared today, “Wait for a Minute,” we get a better understanding of how.

Unlike the previously shared “Water Fountain,” the new single is more mellow and bass heavy. Any sporadic street drumming and clanking you may have come to know well is pushed aside for some humming synth and extra bass. Merrill Garbus is slowing her voice …

Andrew Jackson Jihad Christmas Island

Stream Andrew Jackson Jihad’s New Single “Kokopelli Face Tattoo”

Folk punk duo Andrew Jackson Jihad are returning this year, but it looks like they’re verging away from their folk beginnings and dipping more towards amplified rock. The band have signed to SideOneDummy Records and are putting out a new LP on May 6 called Christmas Island. We’ve already heard “Children of God” off the new record and now we get another single, “Kokopelli Face Tattoo.”

While “Kokopelli Face Tattoo” is way less boppin’ front porch folk than the band’s earlier material, they’re still the same band in text with lines like “I’m a toilet in a …
