  • TEEN have shared the video for title track to their new EP, which is available now via Capark. “Carolina” follows performance art/expressionist Megha Barnabas as she ventures around NYC hotspots with a bouquet of roses. The best part of the video is her crazy dance, featuring awesome arm choreography, in Times Square. [Stereogum]

  • Young Fathers is one of those groups that doesn’t just fit into one genre. The Scottish trio is able blend hip-hop, soul, and rock so effortlessly and it’s unlike anything I’ve heard before. They’re single “Mr. Martyr” has me pumped for their upcoming album, Tape Two (out June 11 via Anticon). Take a listen to the magic below. [CoS]

  • British electric duo Disclosure have dropped the video for the single “When A Fire Starts to Burn” and it is both bizarre and fantastic at the same time. There is something so uniquely entertaining when a minister starts off with a passionate sermon and it escalates into a full on rave. Just the facial expressions of the parishioners should be enough to convince you to watch it. [CoS]

  • Katie Stelmanis’ music project, Austra, is gearing up to release their sophomore album, Olympia, next month so they’ve given us something to really get excited about. Their new single “Painful Like” follows a simple formula of thumping bass, killer synths, and Stelmanis’ haunting voice. [Stereogum]
