  • Last night, Phoenix stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote their new album Bankrupt! (out April 23 via Glassnote). They began the set with their hit “Entertainment” and followed it up with three new songs, “Trying To Be Cool”, “Drakkar Noir”, and “Chloroform”. Check them all out below. [Stereogum]

  • With the release of their new album drawing near, Daft Punk has officially released Random Access Memories first single “Get Lucky”. They first previewed the track last weekend at Coachella, but now its here for your listening pleasure whenever your heart desires. Look for the album on May 21 from Columbia Records. [CoS]

  • For the first time in 35 years the founding members of Black Sabbath are together and they’ve got a brand new album. Here’s our first taste in the form of a nine minute song called “God is Dead?”. Ozzy sounds great and I bet Sabbath fans will be thrilled with this. Their album 13 will be available on June 11.

  • Matthew E. White has released the video for his song “Steady Pace”. Take a look below as White goes on a little adventure through a colorful cardboard world. I have to say, his white tux is pretty snappy. [CoS]
