Wild Beasts - Albatross

Known for their signature operatic art-pop sound, Wild Beasts return this year with their 3rd album, Smother, out May. "Albatross" is not unfamiliar, as trembling high falsetto soars through feather-light keys and guitars. 

Update: here's the video

Twin Shadow - At My Heels (в моих пятках)

Watch for the ridiculous/hilarious commentary. Listen for the beautifully love-struck song. Bangladeshi Bowie indeed...

Robin Pecknold - I'm Losing Myself/Derwentwater Stones

Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold hasn't been wasting time. While we wait for Helplessness Blues to come out in May, Robin has put out a few jams. Whet your palette with the self-concsious "I'm Losing Myself" (Feat. Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste) and the adventurous "Derwentwater Stones."

tUnE-yArDs - Bizness

Bright and early.

Here We Go Magic - Hands in the Sky

Here We Go Magic unleash rays of ethereal sorcery in face of clinical imagery in this new track off The January EP. (The track seems to be lossless mp3, so the player doesn't bother loading it and just skips the track. You're better off downloading it.)

mp3: Here We Go Magic - Hands in the Sky


mp3: Here We Go Magic - Casual

Hard Mix - Now Her

Beat n' sample master Hard Mix was kind enough to give away his new LP, Defaults, at the cost of just "liking" a Facebook page. Solid work!
