  • Corin Tucker’s latest album Kill My Blues came out today and the former Sleater-Kinney leader has also put out the video for the album track “Neskowin,” starring two teenage girls exploring the early days of punk in the hazy and golden 70’s. Check out the video, which also features Corin as X-Ray Specs (or the Cray Specs) lead singer Poly Styrene below and be sure to check out Kill My Blues, available today.

  • Titus Andronicus’ new album Local Business is due out October 22 via XL, but if you can’t wait a month lead singer Patrick Stickles has released the album artwork as well as the first single, “In a Big City” in the form of a funny and cheesy lyrics video on the band’s blog. Check out the video below, and head over to Pitchfork for more information.

  • The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion released Meat and Bone today, their first album in four years, and to celebrate the trio has put out the video for the album’s first single “Black Mold.” The video features some pretty gnarly scenes of some gnarly looking dudes covered in what fittingly appears to be some gnarly looking black mold. Check out the unsettling and rocking video below:

  • Unknown Mortal Orchestra have released a new track “Swim and Sleep (Like A Shark)” following the announcement that the New Zealand trio has signed to U.S. label Jagjaguwar. Although there’s no word if the melodic pop track will be featured on the group’s highly anticipated sophomore album due out sometime in 2013, you can check it out below:
