  • James Mercer of The Shins and Danger Mouse are returning as Broken Bells and have released “Holding On For Life” today. The album is appropriately named for the vibes of the song – After The Disco we rest our bones despite not being able to stop hearing those distant dance floor beats in our heads. [Pitchfork]

  • Tomorrow you can get M.I.A.’s new album Matangi – but today you can stream it for free. Don’t worry, it’s as erradically charming as ever – filled to the brim with the rap/pop/world rhythms that she always nails. [Pitchfork]

  • Scotland’s Frightened Rabbit have a new video for “Holy” from their Pedestrian Verse released earlier this year. A business woman has had enough, and decides it’s time for a change in the beautiful Scottish countryside. Where the video could feel sad, it eschews that in favor of an inspired feeling of forward movement and change. [Stereogum]
