Stream Mew’s Sixth Full-Length Album, ‘+-’

Following the release of two promising singles, the Danish prog-rockers of Mew have begun streaming their highly anticipated new album, +-, in full. Experience it for yourself here, via NPR.

The band’s latest undertaking is their first in five years, following 2009’s critically acclaimed No More Stories… It was recorded in Copenhagen with producer Michael Beinhorn (Ozzy Osbourne, Hole) and features a special guest appearance from Bloc Party’s Russel Lissack.

“Some of it is a bit rockier than the last one, but there are also songs that go even further towards a more produced sound than No More Stories…

Charlie Puth Shares “I Won’t Tell A Soul”

Having cornered the teen male crooner market with “Marvin Gaye” earlier this year, fast-rising heartthrob Charlie Puth continues his journey to the top of the pop charts today with the release of “I Won’t Tell A Soul.”

Built atop a tempo made for slow dancing with someone special under the hot lights of a night club well after most his fans would be told to go to bed, “I Won’t Tell A Soul” showcases Charlie Puth’s crazy talented vocals with minimalist accompaniment. I felt my knees get weak while listening the first time through, and I’m nearly 28 …

New Weezer Track “Everybody Needs Salvation” Appears Online

Fan clubs are more important than ever in helping an artist to develop and maintain a presence in the modern music industry. The trick to finding success isn’t starting one of these clubs, but rather finding ways to retain members while continually encouraging others to join. Weezer have done this by offering free music to fans, as well as concert tickets, and I’ll be the first to say their dedicated fan base is largely the reason they continue to receive so much attention today.

Recently, Weezer offered fan club members the exclusive chance to purchase a rare 7″ single featuring …

When a video of Brand New performing unreleased material at a recent performance in Denver hit the net late last week, the industry and scene as a whole began foaming at the mouth with thoughts over the possibility of a new record soon seeing the light of day. Less than a week later, those dreams have come true.

Stream: Tyler, The Creator, Kanye West, & Lil Wayne – “Smuckers”

Just as Tyler, The Creator‘s Cherry Bomb arrives on iTunes, a stream of one of the record’s most anticipated tracks has found its way online.

“Smuckers” is a collaborative effort that no one could have imagined happening five years ago. Over the course of five and a half minutes Tyler swaps bars with Kanye West and Lil Wayne. Each pretty much stays in their own line, and they probably didn’t actually complete the song in the same room, but still – it’s pretty cool. To make matters even better, it’s a far more enjoyable song than “…

RATATAT Stream “Cream On Chrome,” Their First New Single Since 2010

Ratatat are finally back, after an excruciatingly long five years since their last release, 2010′s LP4.

The New York duo have been next to silent for the entirety of their time out of the spotlight. However, they are playing at Coachella tonight, which you can see much later on the festival’s YouTube live stream.

As far as where this track will end up, no official information has been provided but rumblings of a presumed LP5 have been floating through the industry ether for some time. “Cream On Chrome” is a funky, upbeat, and intricate jam reminiscent of the …

REVIEW: Dance Gavin Dance – ‘Instant Gratification’

Artist: Dance Gavin Dance
Album: Instant Gratification
Genre: Rock, Pop, Experimental

I typically hate reviews and editorials that begin with quotes, but when attempting to begin discussing the latest release from Dance Gavin Dance there was one quote that stuck in my mind like the hook of “Stroke God, Millionaire” will soon stick with all of you: “Art, in itself, is an attempt to bring order out of chaos.”

Stephen Sondheim will probably never be found sitting at the back of your local Dance Gavin Dance concert, but I cannot help thinking the legendary composer and lyricist would, at the …

The Unravelling Stream New Single, “Revolt”

Calgary, Canada’s The Unravelling are currently streaming a new single, titled “Revolt,” that’s set to officially release on April 25. It’s currently available for a ‘name your price’ option, along with its full set of lyrics, on the duo’s Bandcamp.

Dark and brooding, both musically and in its lyrical content, “Revolt” is an industrial metal offering that should appeal to fans of acts like Nine In Nails and Porcupine Tree. At four and a half minutes, the song marches along with a powerful conviction, aided by its chugging guitars and pounding percussion. It’s heavy and it’s on a mission.…

Native Construct Will Blow Your Mind “Come Hell Or High Water”

Do you like The Dear Hunter? The Human Abstract? How about Opeth? Well if you answered “yes” to any or all of those artists, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find yourself loving the works of Boston’s Native Construct. Their newest album, Quiet World, is nigh, and their newest single serves as an ideal jumping off point for new listeners.

“Come Hell Or High Water” is insane in the best ways. It’s quirky and creative, heavy and orchestral, engrossing and intricate, epic and progressive – the list of positive descriptors goes on. The song is a hell of …

FEMME’s “S.O.S” is a Huge Pop Jam With a Colorful Video

Since late 2013, we’ve talked about FEMME quite a bit. The London-based pop songstress keeps delivering hit after hit, and even though we’re admittedly a little late to the game on this one, it’s really never too late to share good music.

“S.O.S” is Laura Bettinson’s newest single, and much like her previous works, it boasts a big, anthemic production with ’80s influence and hooks that are catchy as all get out. It’s got attitude and FEMME exudes her usual confidence with her Bullet Girls at her side in the single’s new video.

“S.O.S” will be officially released on May …

Summer Camp Stream Title Track From Upcoming LP, ‘Bad Love’

If the band name Summer Camp wasn’t enough to make you feel nostalgic, their newest track, “Bad Love,” will surely do the trick. The London-based band is set to release their third LP, Bad Love, on May 26 via Moshi Moshi.

The title track is a short but sweet, lustful exposure to bright sounds, pop melodies, and the invigoration of carefree days of the summer. For those of us stuck in the Northeast these past few months, that is surely something we could use right now.
