  • Cold Cave, aka Wes Eisold, has shared a new song, “Don’t Blow Up the Moon.” It’s a melancholy, electric song that serves as the B side to the previously released “Nausea, The Earth, and Me.” Eisold has said that his third album should be out sometime next year. [Stereogum]

  • Dave Harrington and Nicolas Jaar, aka Darkside, preformed a flawless BBC Radio 1 session last night. The duo delivered a brilliant and sprawling eight minute version of their song “Freak, Go Home.” The track is featured on their recently released and critically acclaimed album, Psychic. [Pitchfork]

  • It seems that Dirty Projectors tapped into their inner Forrest Gump in the video for “Impregnable Question.” Director Adam Newport-Berra followed his brother, Alex, on a five day run through Yellowstone and Grant Teton National Parks. [CoS]

  • The Killers are gearing up to release, Direct Hits, a greatest hits compilation on November 11. The album’s deluxe edition will feature the original demo of their hit “Mr. Brightside” as well as a remix of “When You Were You” produced by Calvin Harris. Check out Harris’ fiery version at Rolling Stone.
