  • Another track from Bat For Lashes‘ forthcoming album The Haunted Man (out October 23rd through Parlophone/EMI) has surfaced online, and although it isn’t named for a woman like its predecessors “Laura” and “Marilyn”, “All Your Gold” is just as stunning. Listen to it below:

  • Like Natasha Khan, Pinback have been slowly dripping tracks from their forthcoming LP Information Retrieved at various spots on the Internet. The newest track, a very 80s-style cut entitled “His Phase”, is now streaming at Entertainment Weekly, which is probably the last place anyone would expect to stream a Pinback track. Information Retrived, Pinback’s first LP in five years, arrives on October 16th.
  • Almost a year after their reunion tour ended, Death From Above 1979 have plotted new dates for the purpose of road-testing some new material. In a letter on the band’s website, drummer/vocalist Sebastian Grainger explained that the tour is intended to work out existing material that the duo recently tried to record in the studio with disappointing results. If the two week Canadian trek is a success, the new material will be the duo’s first recorded since their 2004 debut, You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine. View the dates over at Consequence of Sound.
  • Not to be outdone by Yeasayer’s series of trippy montages, Tame Impala have teamed up with artist Yoshi Sodeoka to make a acid trip substitute of their own for the song “Elephant”. Colorful and hazy, it’s pretty much what Tame Impala would look like if their music was a video. Watch it below ahead of the release of their sophomore effort Lonerism on October 9th.

    This week also – Tedeschi Trucks Band take on The Beacon Theatre for 3 nights! the bands’ 2012 release – “Everybody’s Talkin'” – has been the top surprise album of the year for me thus far. Last time at The Beacon in 2011, they showed NYC what blues should sound like. I’m not missing them this time around!! 9/20!!
