  • Do you like Sigur Rós? Do you like The Vampire Diaries?! Then you are in luck. Another track from upcoming album Valtari will be featured tonight on the season finale of the show. While you can file the series under “teen paranormal romance”, the show has had a pretty decent soundtrack in season’s past (as far as teen paranormal romance goes). Sigur Rós’ debut of new song “Dauoalogn” will likely be no exception.
  • Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich has formed a new band entitled Ultraísta. Joined by drummer Joey Waronker and singer Laura Bettinson, the band has released one song and video thus far, called “Smalltalk”. The song features the electronic rock vibe of more recent Radiohead material. Check out the video below:

  • Azealia Banks has been taking her sweet time in releasing the much-anticipated 1991 EP, but apparently, it’s because she’s been prepping for an epic year of music releases. After 1991 drops (this month, supposedly), it will be followed by a summer mixtape and full-length Broke With Expensive Tase this Fall. As far as release date promises go, we’ve had our hearts broken a couple times, but hopefully this time, it comes to fruition.
  • Oberhofer has released a cover of the Kanye West track “Runaway”, and it’s free over on Stereogum. The cover cuts a couple of verses, but the epic, tongue-in-cheek anthem translates pretty well into Oberhofer’s spacey territory. Grab it at Stereogum here.
