Thursday Music News

  • After the disbandment of one of his countless other bands Sunset Rubdown, former Wolf Parade member Spencer Krug has turned his full attention to his solo-project Moonface. A fan of intricate titles and keeping you in shape, His latest music video from the album With Siinai: Heatbreaking Bravery for the track “I’m Not The Phoenix Yet takes us back to the days of yore when VHS workout videos reigned supreme, featuring grainy footage of several girls working out and shadow boxing in preparation for some unknown task. Get inspired to workout (or just re-watch Rocky) and check out the video below:

  • With the release of his latest album Ocean Roar less than a week away, Phil Elverum’s Mount Eerie has released the fourth single from the album titled “I Walked Home Beholding.” The sleepy organ-dominated song features some pretty somber lyrics which could easily pass unnoticed buried in the sweet and simple melody. Check out “I Walked Home Beholding” below, and be sure to listen to more tracks from the new album from Mount Eerie’s live in-studio KEXP session from June here.

  • After signing to Odd Future’s Odd Future Records earlier this year, going on a spree of absolutely insane shows, hardcore band Trash Talk has released the first track from 119, their upcoming album on the new label. “F.E.B.N.,” which stands for who knows what, barely breaks the 1:30 mark, making it one of Trash Talk’s longer pieces. For more information, head over to Stereogum, and check out the new track below:

  • The Avett Brothers are now streaming their sixth album (their only one produced by Rick Rubin) album titled The Carpenter over at NPR right now, almost two weeks before the album’s September 11 release date. Check out what I’m sure is going to be a lot of strummin’ and hollerin’ here.
  • El-P and Despot were on the latest installment of’s Selector series which features two rappers freestyling over one of two beats they’ve selected for them. Ignoring the fact that the interview takes place in front of a van parked on the sidewalk in a graffitied alley for no reason, the video is well worth your time, if only to see El-P call Despot an “obnoxious little man” and watch Despot rap an entire verse flipping off the camera. Check it out below:
