Wednesday Music News

  • Baltimore fuzz junkies Lower Dens have dropped a second track from their anticipated album, Nootropics, which will be released April 30th in North America. The track, titled “Propagation” undulates, well propagates, forward with characteristic  rhythm. Listen and download it over at Stereogum.
  • In a swift turn of events, the A$AP Rocky/Lana Del Rey collaboration was removed from inclusion in The Kickdrums mixtape that dropped yesterday, due to A$AP Rocky’s desire to keep the song, titled “Ridin’,” for a future album. The Kickdrums tweeted, “the song got too big too fast.”

  • John Maus releases a new, polished-up demo to be included on a special compilation disc from Ribbon Music and Domino in honor of Record Store Day, April 21st. Check out the track below:

  • Woozy-funk garage outfit out of Portland Unknown Mortal Orchestra releases a new video for their track, “Nerve Damage.” Look for cult-y visuals and creepy psychadelia in the video below:

  • And for news in a more discomfiting vein: Paul McCartney’s son, James, drops word in a BBC interview that he would like to start a band with three other sons of Beatles members. When pressed for more, James McCartney answered that “Sean seemed to be into it, Dhani [Harrison] seemed to be into it. I don’t think it’s something that Zak [son of Ringo Starr] wants to do”. No kidding.
