Stream Two New Tracks From Fucked Up

Following the release of their latest full-length, Glass Boys, Fucked Up announced that they would also be putting out a series of 7” featuring several cuts that didn’t make it on to the album. Earlier today, we were graced with our first installment of said series in the form of “Blink” and “The Way We Did,” two unheard tracks that you can stream after the jump.

“These two songs we recorded during the Glass Boys sessions and maybe should’ve made the record because they are really good,” the Toronto six-piece recently explained over Facebook. ” The songs are about subcultures …

Greylag

Listen to Greylag’s Beautiful Folk Single “Another”

Portland trio Greylag have the rustic charm and sweet folk rock of a band whose music will break the grip of fall and see itself played year-round. Their self-titled debut comes out October 14 via Dead Oceans. We suggest pre-ordering it now, especially after you give opening track “Another” a listen after the jump.

It’s been a while since we’ve been this excited over an Americana band. With producer Phil Ek behind the board, the similarities to Fleet Foxes and The Shins are obvious, but even moreso given their songwriting abilities. Roots get a rhythmic stomping in “Another” with guitar …

Hear Sufjan Stevens Cover Arthur Russell’s “A Little Lost”

For years, Red Hot Organization has been putting out incredibly stacked compilations with the proceeds going to AIDS research. Fittingly, their newest record is a tribute to musical mastermind Arthur Russell, who passed away from AIDS in 1992. The tribute compilation, titled Master Mix: Red Hot + Arthur Russell, is out October 21 via Yep Roc with covers by Robyn, Hot Chip, Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry, Scissor Sisters, Cults, Blood Orange, Phosphorescent, Jose Gonzalez, and more.

Perhaps the biggest name on the list, Sufjan Stevens, gets to cover perhaps the biggest song on the list, Russell’s 1994 track …

Radical Something Offer A Fresh Take On West Coast Pop Rock With “Cali Get Down”

I hope you’re ready to dance.

Some Tuesdays feel a lot like second Mondays, but thanks to music it’s possible to turn even the most wretched of days around in a matter of minutes. This morning, an up-and-coming band from California had that impact on our offices when they delivered a single titled “Cali Get Down.”

Radical Something are a fittingly named band featuring three guys who do not strike you as the kind of men that would create music that one staffer described as “club punk.” To be fair, another one said “West Coast bro pop rock.” Regardless, their …

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 …

Charli-XCX

Stream Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap” Remixes EP

Ever since UK singer-songwriter Charli XCX first hit the radio airwaves as a featured singer on Icona Pop’s “I Love It” and Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” she’s been steadily rising. Her new single “Boom Clap” just peaked at #14 on the Hot 100 chart, making it her biggest hit as a solo artist to date, and she’s releasing a remix EP for the track shortly after sharing the song’s entertaining music video.

Charli XCX has slowly been sharing remixes of her The Fault in Our Stars soundtrack contribution, but now we get to stream the collection in full. Each of …

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 …

FKA Twigs

Listen to FKA Twigs’ New Song “Video Girl”

After a lot of online buzz and some well-deserved hype, British experimental R&B artist FKA Twigs has three weeks left until her debut album, LP1, drops August 12 via Young Turks. In anticipation, she’s shared the second track off the record, “Video Girl,” which you can stream below.

Unlike the sultriness of “Two Weeks” and the hard-hitting specifics of “Hide,” the new single sees trip-hop and guitar strums intertwined as FKA Twigs once again brings pained words to life with her golden croon. In an interview with Pitchfork, she said the song was written after …

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 …

Manchester Orchestra

Manchester Orchestra Stream “Opposite Sides” from ‘Earth to Echo’ Soundtrack

In case it slipped past you, the sci-fi adventure film Earth to Echo hit theatres on July 2. The following week, the movie’s official soundtrack became available, and you should consider giving it a listen for a few reasons.

First of all, it features an excellent new Manchester Orchestra song, entitled “Opposite Sides,” which is available to stream below the jump. It should also be noted that well-known acts including Chiddy Bang, Breathe Carolina, The Mowgli’s and Big Data also made an appearance on the official soundtrack.

You can get your hands on “Opposite Sides,” and the rest …

City And Colour

City and Colour Cover Tears for Fears

Let’s take a depressing, cold and edgy Canadian singer-songwriter and then we’ll have him cover a gloomy track by Tears for Fears. Sounds fun, right?

Well, City and Colour have done just that. And it’s a morning maker.

Dallas Green has made a soft, beautiful piano rendition of the Tears for Fears song “Suffer the Children.” It’s a perfect example of how an artist can take a classic track, give it his treatment, but you still know exactly what song it is. Unlike the original, it never really takes off, but it just continually haunts you through the whole track. …

Hilary Duff Returns With “Chasing The Sun”

Having taken a few years off to start a family and mature as a person, former Disney starlet Hilary Duff is kickstarting her comeback this week with the release of a new single titled “Chasing The Sun.”

Scheduled for release in the US on July 29, “Chasing The Sun” reintroduces Hilary Duff to the world with beautiful and immediately infectious acoustic accompaniment. The high-gloss pop sound she once clung to has now been replaced with quiet pop sensibilities, which I believe is best for both Duff and her loyal followers. I don’t think this is necessarily the catchiest song of …
