Mac DeMarco – Passing Out Pieces (Video)

Mac Demarco has come out with a new video for his song “Passing Out Pieces” from his album Salad Days that came out on April 1st. The video starts off with a simple disagreement, then things get real weird real fast. There’s a couple murders and a baby with lettuce for a head, yet the song is oddly cheerful. Kids, let this be a lesson to NEVER EVER pour bleach on your cigs. Check out the video after the jump. NSFW! Read More…

Jacuzzi Boys – Double Vision

Miami, Florida’s alternative sensation Jacuzzi Boys are back with their brand new, self-titled album due out September 10th. Breezy vocals soar over zip guitar lines, laser-like keys, tambourines, and hand claps while groovy bass lines keep the album flowing from song to song. A lazy feel to the lo-fi indie makes Jacuzzi Boys a nice, relaxing listen while allowing the listener to reflect on the past, present, and future. Check out their new single “Double Vision” off their upcoming September 10th release Jacuzzi Boys below. Read More…

Volcano Choir – Byegone

For a slow start to your Monday, we give you Volcano Choir. With a slow, somewhat long buildup reminiscent of that one famous The Who song, “Byegone” finally clashes into a sea of tumultuous guitars and cymbals as if a thunderstorm had formed secretly overhead. While slow, they can be said to sound like a noisier version of Bon Iver (it is a Justin Vernon project after all) and when fast, you might hear a lot of Arcade Fire in them. Be sure to check out the song “Byegone” off their album Repave out September 3rd below. Read More…

Grouplove – Ways To Go

Los Angeles’ Grouplove are back with the first single off of their upcoming album Spreading Rumors to be released on September 17th. The dance-y, poppy, upbeat indie juggernauts are back with a decidedly more electronic take on their wild, dual-vocaled romps. Check out the slightly odd music video for the new single “Ways To Go” off the upcoming Spreading Rumors below. Read More…

Hop Along – Tibetan Pop Stars

From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Hop Along present a refreshingly simple style of music that cuts the frills and gets right to the point. With vocals and lyrics akin to a girl version of The Front Bottoms, the music can sometimes get a little awkward, but the groove of the instrumentation keeps it flowing. These guys are just getting up and out there with their first release, so there are only good things to come. Be sure to check out the track “Tibetan Pop Stars” off their 2012 debut album Get Disowned below. Read More…

Gogol Bordello – Start Wearing Purple

Most of us are aware now of the eccentric stylings of Gogol Bordello. Even though they sound like they’re straight out of eastern Europe, their music is perfectly representative of where they actually come from: New York City. The diversity of the lower east side of Manhattan shines through the music in every crash, clang, twink, and twog of a multitude of instrumentation. “Polka meets ska meets blues meets indie” might sound like a weird statement, but if you know Gogol Bordello, it doesn’t seem as strange. Check out the track “Start Wearing Purple” off their new album Pura Vida Conspiracy below. Read More…

The Postal Service – This Place Is a Prison

In honor of them playing their last live show ever this past weekend, this is The Postal Service at their finest. Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie, All-Time Quarterback!, etc.), Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel), and, at times, Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley, Jenny and Johnny, etc.) spent years and years sending ideas back and forth through the United State Postal Service to finally get a full-length album together in 2003. A decade later, they play their last show at a Lollapalooza after-party to a completely packed and elated crowd. Unfortunately, from now the only Postal Service we get to deal with is the one losing our mail. Check out a track off Give Up called “This Place Is A Prison” below. Read More…
