  • Today we have the fantastic lead single of Phantogram‘s upcoming and highly anticipated Voices album. “Fall in Love” is a fuzzy, yet soulful track that is sure to get fans pumped for the rest of the album. Look for Voices to drop on February 18 via Republic.

    • YACHT have lent their talents to Everything is New, a charity partnership between children’s charity Love in Action and Scotland based Transgressive North. The Portland band contributed a song to one of the two albums that will be released in support of India’s “untouchable” youth. The song even features the voices of children from Love in Action’s Light of Love Children’s Home in India. Take a listen to “Icarus Complex” below and click HERE to learn more about this worthwhile cause. [CoS]
    • Arctic Monkeys have shared the B-side of new single “One for the Road,” off their acclaimed album, AM. “You’re So Dark” is a laid-back, sultry track that really relies on frontman Alex Turner’s smoky vocals. [Pitchfork]

    • This morning, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks released another single their upcoming Wig Out at Jagbags, due January 7. You won’t need a lyric sheet for “Cinnamon and Lesbians” as it’s all spelled out pretty well in this Portlandia-esque video:

    • Chicago experimental rockers Califone take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane in the video for their track “We are a Payphone.” Sometimes letting go of past, material attachments is good for the soul. Check it out, below. [Stereogum]

    • Macaulay Culkin‘s new band is no vanity project. In what may be the strangest celebrity-led music project, the former child actor (Home Alone, among others) has gathered a few of his friends to cover songs by The Velvet Underground rewritten to be about one topic: pizza. Feast upon The Pizza Underground below. [Huffington Post]
