  • A new video popped up today from Santigold. The video is for her new single “Disparate Youth”, which debuts today on iTunes. The song comes from her much anticipated new LP, Master Of My Make-Believe. Watch the video above.
  • The Shins have created a video for their newest single “Simple Song.” Oddly enough, instead of just streaming it, they are offering it up for free on iTunes. It’s a quirky and adorable video, featuring an aged James Mercer giving his last will and testament. Grab it here.

  • Blur, New Order, and The Specials are slated to perform at the closing ceremonies for the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games. This “Best of the British” performance will take place in Hyde Park.
  • Rufus Wainwright released the new single from his upcoming album Out of the Game today. The track is called “Montauk” and reminisces about the town of the same name. The new album will be produced by Mark Ronson and feature cameos by Nick Zinner, Sean Lennon, and Doveman. For a listen and some more information about the album, check it out at Twenty Four Bit here.
  • Memoryhouse is now streaming their new album The Slideshow Effect in full over at SPIN. If you still haven’t checked out this beautiful record, do so here!
  • Little Dragon has remixed the Grouplove track “Tongue Tied” and morphed it into a noisy, snare-heavy dance track. It’s available for free download through SPIN here.
