  • Arctic Monkeys have premiered a video for the track “One for the Road” off their latest album AM, which the KEXP Blog has called a “most interesting step out of their spiky, guitar-laden comfort zone.” Watch the band meander through the cornfields below. [Pitchfork]

  • They’re not the only ones with a new video: Arcade Fire revealed a 30-second sneak peek at the video for “Breakglass,” showing the band performing in masks. Watch it below, and be sure to tune in to KEXP on Monday, October 28th for a live in-studio session from the band at 7:00 PM PT. [NME]

  • Portland pal Colin Meloy of The Decemberists continues his covers EP series with Colin Meloy Sings The Kinks, which will only be available on his upcoming tour. Get a copy for yourself on January 22, 2014, when Meloy plays The Neptune Theatre with John Roderick. [Consequence of Sound]
