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 …

The Rural Alberta Advantage Win Us Over With “Terrified”

Toronto’s The Rural Alberta Advantage have never seemed to get quite the recognition they deserve but we’re hoping that their new album, Mended With Gold, will do the trick. Their newest single, entitled “Terrified,” should surely set them on the right path.

“Terrified” is a monstrous, galloping folk-rock effort that will take you by surprise right from its opening moments. Nils Edenloff’s vocals have always been considered an acquired taste, but I think with artists like Andy Hull transitioning more into the mainstream, listeners will hopefully be more open to accepting his unique voice — which I personally find …

Opeth Pale Communion

Opeth Announce New Album, Stream “Cusp of Eternity”

On August 26, Swedish metal band Opeth will drop a new studio album titled Pale Communion via Roadrunner Records. The eight-track release is their eleventh studio album. With frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt producing and Porcupine Tree guitarist Steven Wilson mixing, it should see the band’s sound expanding into more psych and prog influences as their last release, 2011′s Heritage, did. As the press release notes, it will have very little “growls or death metal vocals.”

“I wanted to do something more melodic with this album. There’s stronger vocal melodies and more melodies overall,” Åkerfeldt said of the release. “I was pretty …

Listen Up: Say Lou Lou Stream B-Side “Peppermint”

Say Lou Lou is keeping the anticipation for Everything We Touch high as they took a minute to give fans another taste of what’s to come as they’re now offering up a stream of a b-side, “Peppermint.”

Back in March they delighted us with the title track. “Everything We Touch” was dream-pop–well, dream come true. This time around they’ve taken it down a notch with “Peppermint.” It’s alluring but definitely not as fun as the other.

Everything We Touch was slated for a May 19 release, but now it looks like we’ll have to wait until June 1. …


STREAM: Jack White – “Lazaretto”

We reported earlier this month that former White Stripes frontman Jack White will be releasing his second solo record, Lazaretto, on June 10. Along with that announcement came an instrumental track called “High Ball Stepper” and Jack White’s claim to release the “world’s fastest released record” ever.

Well…that day has come. Today fans get to hear “Lazaretto,” the first single and title track from the album.

According to Consequence of Sound, this track was recorded, mastered, pressed and sold for Record Store Day in just three hours and 21 minutes.
