Thursday Music News

  • Elusive electronic duo Boards of Canada are set to release their first album, Tomorrow’s Harvest, in eight years on June 5th. After having to track down specific six digit codes throughout the internet and on a record store day vinyl release to reach the online video announcement of the LP, the band has gone with the very un-challenging soundcloud route to share their single “Reach for the Dead”. Check out the song and its video below. [CoS]

  • Alaskan band Portugal. The Man have released a new video for “Atomic Man” off their upcoming Danger Mouse-produced LP Evil Friends, due on June 4th. David Vincent Wolf directs the video — a series of moving portraits of the band members as their features slide, morph, and melt to trippy effect. [CoS]

  • Even more new music from another upcoming early June LP comes from British group Disclosure. “When a Fire Starts to Burn” is the third song we’ve heard from the album — and man this is seriously catchy stuff. This album will be the dance music of the summer easily, especially if the rest of the album follows suit in the hard-edged garage-pop dance feel of tracks like “When a Fire Starts to Burn” — listen to it below.

  • Arts & Crafts, the Canadian label that has been home to artists like Chilly Gonzales, Bloc Party, Feist, Broken Social Scene, and many other Canadian (or otherwise) musical luminaries is celebrating its tenth anniversary. To mark the occasion, they’re putting tpgether a compilation called X featuring collaborations between theri artists. Today they’ve shared the song by Broken Social Scene and Years, “Day of the Kid”. Take a listen here to the captivating, hypnotic six-minute hushed landscape that the two artists put together. [CoS]
