Sonic Roundup 5/25

  • Late next month, Arcade Fire are rereleasing their Grammy-winning album, The Suburbs, which will also include the Spike Jonze-directed short film, Scenes from the Suburbs, two new songs, “Culture War” and “Speaking in Tongues,” which features Talking Heads’ David Byrne on backup vocals.

  • Psych-rock outfit Yeasayer debuted a brand-new track on last night’s episode of Conan, called “The Devil and the Deed”; a staccato synth-rock gem that adds considerable anticipation for the band’s next release. Watch:

  • July 5 will see the release of Brian Eno‘s new collaborative album Drums Between the Bells with poet Rick Holland. Eno’s website is now sharing a non-album track in the form of “Imagine New Times”, recorded during the album sessions. The song features spoken word segments read over airy synths.

  • Eccentric glam-pop group of Montreal stopped by the AV Club’s studios to record a cover of The White Stripes‘ “Fell in Love with a Girl”, but far from turning the track into a bubbly acid jam, Kevin Barnes and co. stripped down to a four-piece and bared their garage-rock teeth. It may be the most un-of Montreal song ever.

  • Unsung chillwave king Teen Daze stunned with last year’s Four More Years EP, and now the first taste of the forthcoming A Silent Planet EP has hit the web. Entitled “Surface” and drenched in reverb and delay, Teen Daze crafts a tune that would make Washed Out proud.
