  • Beer-loving punks Fidlar have been kicking around the tour circuit for a while, and now they have a full-length that they can sell to pay for more beer. The Los Angeles band’s self-titled debut is due on January 22nd through Mom + Pop, and it includes songs titled “Stoked & Broke”, “Whore”, “Wake Bake Skate” and “Cocaine”. If that sounds like a good time, you can check out the full tracklisting and their current tour itinerary over at Consequence of Sound.
  • Well-spoken New Jersey punks Titus Andronicus are issuing Local Business, their third collection of poetic, anthemic rock, on October 22nd and to warm their fans up for their upcoming tour (including a stop at Neumos on 11/14 with Ceremony), they’ve released another lyric video for a track from the album. “Still Life with Hot Deuce and Silver Platter” is classic Patrick Stickles (sample lyric: “Content vs. Context/they have a fight, context wins”) and it will probably sound pretty good while you’re triumphantly raising your beer with 400 other fans. Watch it below and try not to yell “Hot Deuce!” if you’re at work.

  • After postponing some live dates to allow guitarist Anand Wilder to witness the birth of his daughter, Yeasayer have rescheduled some tour dates, and for those that haven’t seen them live yet, they’ve released a live video for the Fragrant World cut “Reagan’s Skeleton”. If you haven’t seen them live before (or read our review of their recent show at the Neptune), the video below serves as a pretty good substitute.

  • Continuing the promotional push behind her forthcoming third album, The Haunted Man, Bat For Lashes‘ Natasha Khan appeared on BBC Radio 1 to play some new cuts and a somber cover of Rihanna’s “We Found Love”. Khan strips the song to its core, focusing on the lyrics, which make the typically-upbeat dance tune seem more like a funeral lament. Listen to it below ahead of The Haunted Man’s October 23rd release date.
