The Antlers Announce: Familiars

The Antlers, who gave us our #1 album of 2009 in Hospice, announced their 4th album Familiars today - releasing June 17 on Anti. "Palace" below, is a return to the haunting balladry and subtle crescendos that made Hospice so compelling.

Tycho: "Spectre"

Been jamming on this Tycho album for awhile now - the excellent Awake - out now on Ghostly. Enjoy this lighter than air track "Spectre" that manages to float and groove at the same time.

Fear Of Men Share "Luna"

Tit for tat... the excellent new single from Fear of Men (on the road w/ Pains). Their album Loom comes out in April on Kanine with a special RSD vinyl edition that you can grab early.

Pains of Being Pure at Heart Days of Abandon, "Simple and Sure"

It's no surprise we've loved this band for awhile - from their 80s influenced debut, to the 90s power-pop of their sophomore album. "Simple and Sure" is a tune that is just that - pure, crisp, refreshing and well written. Glad to have them back. They have a national tour w/ Fear of Men and the new album Days of Abandon comes out 4/22.

EMA: "So Blonde"

EMA "The Future's Void" Out April 8

Tove Lo: "Not on Drugs"

Here's a huge track from rising Swede pop sensation Tove Lo. Likely to turn a lot of A&R heads stateside. See her in Austin and grab Truth Serum EP on Tuesday.

Arthur Beatrice: "Midland"

Coming on the heels of the rising success of London Grammar, another full-throated female fronted group from the UK - Arthur Beatrice - has delivered an exciting new tune in "Midland." Giving a bit more of a punch than London G, but perhaps lacking some of the darker beauty, the true test for the group will be the live show - which they bring to the US starting March 3rd in Brooklyn, venue TBD, but scheduled right now for Rough Trade - then SXSW and an LA trip. Their album Working Out comes out Tuesday on Harvest in the states.
