  • The Men have graced us with yet another track from their upcoming acoustic EP Campfire Songs, which was literally recorded around a campfire. “Turn Your Colors” showcases the band’s ability to create an emotive track that almost relies entirely on their instrumental prowess. The sweeping guitars and pounding drums make me hungry for S’mores. [Stereogum]

  • Next month, Yuck will release their first album since splitting with former band mate Daniel Blumberg. After listening to this new song, “Memorial Fields,” you can rest assured that the indie shoegazers still sound amazing in this AB (after Blumberg) era. It’s a sparkly track that almost feels otherworldly, enjoy. [Stereogum]

  • Paul McCartney stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night and performed a killer 15-song concert on Hollywood Boulevard. Check out the videos below to hear Sir Paul bring the house down with his brand new track “New” as well as the Beatles’ hit “Lady Madonna.” You can watch the entire set on Myspace. [CoS]

  • Nicolas Jaar has shared a brand new remix of his 2011 song “Why Didn’t You Save Me.” Dave Harrington, Jaar’s Darkside partner, is the man behind this interesting mix. His addition of singer Tamara’s vocals really transforms the track. Also, Darkside’s debut LP Psychic will be released on October 8. [Pitchfork]

  • Check out the fascinatingly simple, yet fancy, new video that Autre Ne Veut has shared for his track “Ego Free Sex Free.” It features men and women, dressed in their most elegant attire, participating in one of the oddest dance sequences I’ve ever seen. [Pitchfork]
