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.

As if you needed another reason to like Duke Dumont even more...he has teamed up with Bondax, who remixed his smash, "I Got U ft. Jax Jones".

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.

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.
