  • Sleigh Bell’s literal reign of terror (bearing no relation to that other reign of terror) will continue this summer as newly announced tour dates have just popped up on the interwebs.  List of dates here.
  • You could patiently wait until June 26 to hear Animal Collective’s two new songs, “Honeycomb” and “Gotham,” on 7″, or you can impatiently download them NOW at their website.  Take your time and think it through.

  • Arguably a chief catalyst of the recent resurgence of electropop, 2009 darlings Passion Pit is back with a epic new song, “Take A Walk” off of their brand new album, Gossamer, due July 23.  Listen to it now, courtesy of Soundcloud:

  • What happens when the king of reggae, Bob Marley, meets the Prince of Wales?!?  interesting herbal tea.  But no really, Prince Harry of Wales has recently made significant headway in the fruition of this mash-up.
  • Silky smooth from second one,  ATL’s Constellations are back to usher in summer proper with this bluesy, sassy, but more importantly, FREE, download of their song, “Right Where I Belong,” off of their new album, Do It For Free, due June 12th on 429 Records.  MP3 download link here, courtesy of Rolling Stone.

    No Seattle date for Sleigh Bells, even after they canceled the last show?! Dang! I really want to see Class Actress, too.
