Wednesday Music News

  • Sasquatch! has announced the final set times for all of its artists. They’ve done a great job at keeping any potential conflicts to a minimum. Though headliners such as Vampire Weekend, Mumford & Sons, and The Postal Service are each on different days, there will still be some tough decisions to be made. With about six weeks left to wait, you now have ample amounts of time to formulate a plan. You can check out the detailed schedule HERE. [CoS]
  • Coming off the very recent release of his new album, Overgrown, James Blake has delivered a magical new video for the title track. Blake’s beautifully haunting voice paired with the delicious visuals is a recipe for brilliance. Sleep walking has never seemed so mysterious and enchanting. [CoS]

  • Nothing is more delightful than when She & Him offers up some dreamy new music. Zooey Deschanel’s light and bubbly vocals never fail to put a smile on my face and the new single “I Could’ve Been Your Girl” has me grinning like a fool. It may be about heartbreak, but it’s wrapped in a lively sound with sparkling instrumentals. Deschanel and M.Ward’s album entitled Volume 3 will be out on May 7 via Merge. [Stereogum]

  • When they’re not busy performing with their band Black Mountain, Amber Webber and Joshua Wells release new music through their music project Lightning Dust. They’ve got their second album, Fantasy, coming out on June 25 via Jagjaguwar and today we have a taste in the form of the single “Diamond”. Their indie-psychadelic style creates such a fresh and ethereal listening experience, you won’t be disappointed. [Stereogum]

    • Last night Justin Timberlake, along with soul legend Mavis Staples and Ben Harper, joined President Obama at the White House to celebrate Memphis soul music. As a native Memphian, it warms my heart to see the leader of the Free World and FLOTUS sway along to the Otis Redding classic “(Sittin’ On) the Dock Of The Bay”. [Stereogum]
