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

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.…

UTG PREMIERE: Closure In Moscow – “Neoprene Byzantine”

Closure In Moscow side effects may include psychedelic hallucinations, rhythmic tremors, and musical euphoria, especially at the Pink Lemonade dose. The Australians’ first record since 2009′s frenetically fantastic First Temple brings all kinds of strange, throwing jammier grooves into their old post-hardcore pace — it’s an eclectic cocktail of awesome that tastes funky, but goes down smooth.

“Neoprene Byzantine” is no exception, shifting from ’70s psych to spoken word at a moment’s notice. Get down with the shrieks and eccentricities and get high on our exclusive premiere of the song below.

Pink Lemonade‘s less than a month away, dropping …

EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD: W.C. Lindsay — ‘Hum & Roar’

W.C. Lindsay is an artist not to sleep on heading into summer 2014. The new LP, Easy Victim, Charitable Deceptions, is dynamic in the best ways possible — some parts of the record will send you into a trance that sways the body from head to toe and other parts will grab you in a wave of subtle punk-driven emotion that makes you swell with thought. It’s the best new thing you’ve been waiting for to be your warm weather anthem.

Formed in 2011, Arizona’s REACTIONS consist of Michael Amorosia, Steve Splain, Josh Brown, and Nick Ayres. Combining their love for all things Metal, Pop, and Punk REACTIONS linked their pop/rock sound to form a more rock/post hardcore style integrating big choruses and melodies. They have …

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 …

Nicki Minaj Keeps It Dark And Filthy On “Chi-Raq”

2014 is the year Nicki Minaj proves everyone wrong.

After surprising fans with the ultra-aggressive “Lookin Ass,” Nicki Minaj is back in our headlines this morning with another ferocious offering that is sure to stun.

Addressing recent controversies and squashing any doubts people have in her legitimacy as an emcee, “Chi-Raq” finds Nicki Minaj riding a dark beat with equally bleak lyricism. There are mentions of the suits in the industry, haters, the violence on the streets of Chicago, and her refusal to ever stand down with a flow that is nothing short of entrancing.

As if that …

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 …
