Sonic Roundup 6/22

  • If Radiohead‘s King of Limbs left you unsatisfied, the band has released a clip of themselves playing a new song. This one’s called “Staircase,” and was recorded with Portishead drummer Clive Deamer for producer Nigel Godrich‘s performance series “From the Basement.” Watch it below.

  • KEXP listeners should be familiar with Wild Flag by now - either through the group’s storied history (Sleater-Kinney, Helium, The Minders) or because of the raucous live sessions posted from this year’s SXSW. The band’s self-titled debut is set to drop September 13th via Merge, and now you can catch a stream of second single “Romance,” debuted on WFMU’s punk show The Cherry Blossom Clinic.

  • Young rockers Yuck have a new video for “Shook Down,” off this year’s self-titled debut album. A collage of body parts make up the two stars as they engage in some snake-filled activities (that’s not a euphemism). Of course, when we say “body parts,” we do mean all of them - this video is very much NSFW. (But why are you watching music videos at work anyway?)

  • Surfer Blood recently took to the AV Club studios as part of the 2011 edition of AV Undercover. The Florida rockers rollicked through Pixies hit “Gigantic,” recruiting Sarah Baldwin (from The Girls at Dawn) to provide Kim Deal’s vocals. Catch it below.

  • Montreal’s Stars are going strong after the release of their 2010 album The Five Ghosts, including the release of the digital album The Bedroom Demos, a collection of impromptu demos and early cuts from the band’s 2007 release In Our Bedroom After the War. Now, they’ve got a video for Five Ghosts standout “We Don’t Want Your Body,” starring some dreamy-eyed body builders. Check it out below.
