Required Listening: Circa Survive – “Scentless Apprentice” (Nirvana Cover)

It’s Record Store Day! We hope those of you who were able to shop this morning got out and did your part to celebrate and support the industry we’ve dedicated our lives to covering, but even if you left as soon as you woke up today there is a good chance you came home with a few items missing from your RSD wish list. We cannot help you acquire those records, but we can help you experience some of the music you may be missing.

Circa Survive were one of a dozen artists chosen to cover a song off Nirvana

Let The Analog Affair Kickstart Your Weekend With “Take Me Home”

The digital age is a crazy cool time for music for a number of reasons, including the ability for musicians separated by hundreds, if not thousands of miles to collaborate on projects that the entire world can enjoy. This is one of those projects.

Evan Baker and Cody Moser are the two creative minds behind The Analog Affair, a fast-rising electronic outfit with a wide range of influences from the worlds of rock and pop. Their sound brings to mind the kind of cutesy indie meets summertime electronica fodder you would expect Pitchfork to flip over, with a subtle sentimentality …

STREAM: Fun. – ‘Point And Light’

Record Store Day is almost upon us, and pop superstars Fun. will be participating in this year’s event with the release of Point and Light, a collection of demos recorded prior to the group’s 2009 debut album, Aim and Ignite. Physical copies will be available exclusively at independent stores tomorrow, but you can stream the five-song EP right now after the break.

Fans will no doubt be familiar with the final versions of these songs, but it’s still interesting to hear the progression that the arrangements went through before the official recording. “Light a Roman Candle With Me,” …

Having just released their debut LP Temple of Plenty on Tiny Engines, Boston’s Somos are premiering their video for “Domestic” exclusively at Alternative Press.

Somos, who are playing this year’s Fest alongside bands like the Descendents and Foxing, just got off a month long tour with label mates Save Ends. Temple of Plenty, which was released March 25, is available to order here.

You can stream the video for “Domestic,” which originally streamed on AbsolutePunk, below or on Alternative Press here.…

Banner Pilot

Banner Pilot Premiere New Song “Effigy”

Today, Minneapolis punks Banner Pilot released their new album Souvenir through Fat Wreck Chords.

To see our review of the album, you can click here. Coming from a roster of legendary punk bands, Souvenir has a high standard to hold up to.

The band’s bassist Nate Gangelhoff told Alternative Press that he’s confident that the tracks will cause “defiant fist pumps” to ensue. While talking about the new album on the band’s website, Nate assured fans “We are very stoked about it. If we were bummed about it, I would still lie and tell you we were stoked. But …

Twin Shadow Releases New Single “To the Top”

It’s been a few years since we’ve heard anything George Lewis, Jr. Finally we get some new ’80s music.

Twin Shadow released Confess in 2012, and with this new single, he’s back in the same fashion he left. And based on past releases beyond that, I’d say any record that is released on this moniker would follow that pattern. But don’t let that steer you away, it’s still enjoyable. And luckily for us, the rumor is he is working on the currently untitled full-length record.

This is what he had to say about the track via Consequence of Sound:…

Future-RAPPER 2012

STREAM: Future – ‘Honest’

This is the rap album that deserves the hype. Schoolboy Q got it. Future deserves it.

It’s my most anticipated rap album thus far. And from what we’ve heard already, with the title track and the absolutely unreal “Move That Dope,” where he’s accompanied by Pusha T, Casino and the one and only Pharrell, there’s no reason it shouldn’t be. Other tracks feature Kanye, Lil’ Wayne and Drake. With all that plus his weekend onstage cameo with Outkast at Coachella, he proves again why Atlanta hip-hop is a force to be reckoned with.

It’s now available to be heard in …

Sling Shot to Heaven

ALBUM STREAM: Margot & The Nuclear So and So’s – ‘Sling Shot To Heaven’

Indiana sweethearts Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s will drop their fifth full-length, Sling Shot To Heaven, next week on April 22. In anticipation, the album is up in its entirety for streaming purposes on Soundcloud. Check it out after the jump.

Sling Shot To Heaven was recorded on two-inch tape and self-produced in the band’s own studio. When discussing the album, frontman Richard Edwards said the record is a little bit of his current life, ideal life, and fictional life, altogether “invented from fragments of people I’ve known.” He added, “Making it was a joyful and maddening experience. …

Nas

Stream Nas’ 20th Anniversary ‘Illmatic XX’

Today, Nas is releasing the deluxe reissue of his landmark debut, Illmatic, as a 20th anniversary edition titled Illmatic XX. To celebrate its release, highlights from the LP can be streamed below.

The reissue has remastered versions of all the original tracks as well as a second disc of rare remixes, unreleased demos, and freestyles. Some of those bonus tracks are ones we’ve already been spinning, like “I’m a Villain.”

Order the album here to hear it in its entirety, or check out some select tracks below.…

Caribou Owen Pallett

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.…

emmure 2014

STREAM: Emmure – ‘Eternal Enemies’

There’s been a lot of buzz regarding Emmure’s forthcoming LP, Eternal Enemies, which hits shelves tomorrow (April 15) through Victory Records. Given, most of that buzz has been criticism, easy come easy go, right?

Following the release of two music videos (“Nemesis,” “Like LaMotta”), earlier today the group continued to hype their newest effort by streaming it in full a day ahead of its actual release. Check it out after the break.

Incredibly predictable and not the least bit forward-thinking, if you enjoy being sworn at by Frankie Palmeri for over an hour, you …

Thee Oh Sees Drop

Stream Thee Oh Sees’ New Album ‘Drop’ In Full

After a 16-year run, San Francisco garage rock staples Thee Oh Sees announced, pretty much out of nowhere, that they would be going on a hiatus.

At this point, it’s pretty clear frontman John Dwyer‘s words about not playing a show for a “long while” were loose. He announced his own new band, Damaged Bug, shared some tunes, and now, a few months later, Thee Oh Sees are back with another new album.

The record, titled Dropfollows up their 2013 release Floating Coffin. It comes out on April 19 (aka Record Store Day) via Dwyer’s …
