Of Monsters And Men Announce New Album, Stream “Crystals”

Less than a week has passed since Mumford And Sons shared the first taste of their post-folk sound, and now it seems Of Monsters And Men want to prove they too have evolved since their debut. The band just announced a new album titled Beneath The Skin, and earlier today they shared a lyric video for the record’s first single.

I don’t know what I expected from “Crystals,” but I can promise you it wasn’t the song you’re about to hear. Of Monsters And Men have not completely abandoned the sound that made them top 40 mainstays, but like …

Count To Four have covered fan favorite “This Photograph Is Proof (I Know You Know),” which is no easy task. With soaring melodies and guitars, Count To Four successfully revitalize the nostalgic love of the original track, all while adding their personal touch to it.

ENTHEOS (Former Members of Animosity, Animals As Leaders) Stream Debut EP, ‘Primal’

After studio teases galore, ENTHEOS have finally released their debut, four-track EP – a few days earlier than originally expected, too.

“Our EP is done and we couldn’t wait until Sunday to put it out,” the band stated on Instagram.

Aggressive as hell, but more djenty and electronic than we expected, Primal is a rip-roaring good time for fans of groovy, technical death metal. Featuring Navene Koperweis (Animosity, Animals As Leaders, Fleshwrought, The Faceless) on drums, Evan Brewer (Animosity, The Faceless) on bass, Frank Costa (Animosity) on guitar and the awesomely inspiring Chaney Crabb on vocal duties, it’s easy to …


Incubus “Trust Fall” Into Us With a Lyric Video

So Incubus is back, and without mercy. Just the other day, the band shared their first new song in years, titled “Absolute Calling.” The song was no shock and awe, as it seemed to be a continuance of the most recent work from the band.

But this time, with the release of the second song, “Trust Fall,” it sounds like they may have journeyed with a time machine back to the A Crow Left of the Murder era.

The song is a crazy six minutes long, that takes turns left and right, and is an exciting listen. If …

All Get Out Are Back With Their First New Track Since 2011; It Was Worth The Wait

Yesterday, All Get Out and Bad Timing Records surprised us all with a previously hinted at new release from the band. The band’s Movement EP will be their first release since 2011′s The Season and it’ll be out on April 14 through BTR. We’re excited – even more so now that we’ve heard the first single.

“Balance” is a chilling ripper of a jam through and through and we can’t stop listening to it. It seems as though those four years of near-silence were well worth the wait for fans of the South Carolina quartet. I mean, like really, this …

Brigades Stream “Under My Skin” From Acoustic EP, ‘Our Lives Unfold’

Following last year’s excellent Crocodile Tears EP, South Carolina’s Brigades are already back with another release through Pure Noise Records.

The pop-punk five-piece will release an acoustic EP, titled Our Lives Unfold, on March 31 through the California label, and today they’re streaming the effort’s lead single over at Substream.

For fans of the softer side of acts like The Story So Far, “Under My Skin” is a perfect addition to Pure Noise’s roster of releases and Brigades’ still-budding catalogue and music career. You can stream the track below.

Starting on April 1, Brigades will be hitting …

Hear Sufjan Stevens’ Gorgeous New Song “Should Have Known Better”

On March 31, Sufjan Stevens will release his brand new folk album, Carrie & Lowellvia Asthmatic Kitty. Pre-orders are ongoing in a variety of formats here. In anticipation of the release, he’s sharing another new single: “Should Have Known Better.”

As the second track on his album, “Should Have Known Better” acts as an introductory phrase to what kind of folk we can expect in his triumphant return. Bedroom keys eventually hop in as well as layered melodies and various harmonies with backing vocals. Stevens expertly layers it all to turn struggles into a beautiful reflection. While …


Stream MALL WALK’s Catchy Single “Criminal Code”

Oakland trio MALL WALK may not be a household name yet, but it’s only a matter of time. The post-punk indie rockers are following up last year’s eponymous debut EP with 7″ Criminal Code which drops March 31 via Vacant Stare Records. The two-song release sees the musicians whipping up equal parts psych, rock, and punk for a gritty take on pop structure. In anticipation of the release, they have shared the title track for streaming.

On “Criminal Code,” MALL WALK scrape the bottom of a barrel for crumbling dirt and then tip their guitars inwards, filling it to the …


Mikal Cronin Shares “ii) Gold”

This week has been killer, with new tracks from some great acts. The routine continues, as Mikal Cronin shares another track from his forthcoming LP MCIII.

“ii) Gold” carries the fuzz and buzz on its shoulders, not unlike Ty Segall, whom Mikal has worked with a few times in the past, and it’s one helluva rock anthem. This album is so far shaping up to be fantastic, as this track is the second track we’ve heard from the album, along with “Made My Mind Up,” which acts as another fast and hard hitter. MCIII is apparently a …

STREAM: Surfer Blood – “I Can’t Explain”

The lo-fi indie outfit known as Surfer Blood are back with their first official single off the forthcoming LP, entitled 1000 Palms.

The new song, “I Can’t Explain,” really cuts back from the band’s traditional sound, slows it down big time, but still contains the feel-good vibes that are relentless from the group.

The band had a few things to say about the creation of the song, also.

“’I Can’t Explain’ is one of our most collaborative efforts to date…The hook just came to us one day in the practice space and we wrote the rest of the song

So Help Us God: Kanye West Streams “Awesome”

Following the release of “All Day” just last week, Kanye West has shared a new song titled “Awesome.”

Allegedly an updated version of a song first premiered during a live performance nearly two years ago, “Awesome” is yet another vocoder-riddled track from Kanye West. It’s as if 808s And Heartbreaks happened all over again, only this time the lyrics speak to love (likely referencing wife Kim Kardashian) and lack the immediate catchiness of most the material contained on that album. That’s not to say the song is a waste of time altogether, but if you’re looking for the …
