  • Pixies have released their follow up EP to last year’s EP-1, aptly titled EP-2. It’s available for purchase on the band’s website and you can check out the official video for the EP track “Blue-Eyed Hexe” below. [Pitchfork]

  • For those of us that fear for our children’s music exposure, Starbucks is offering a simple solution. Instead of kids being bombarded with Miley Cyrus and Jusin Beiber, they can sink their little teeth into an eclectic mix of indie artists. Music For Little Hipsters is available in stores and features the talents of I’m From Barcelona, Booker T. and the MG’s, The Beach Boys, and many more. [CoS]
  • Chicago rockers Califone have shared the video for “Movie Music Kills a Kiss,” which was featured on last year’s album Stiches. It’s a intense couples dispute that was shot completely in slow-motion and beautifully directed by frontman Tim Rutili. [Stereogum]

  • There may not be an official release date yet for araabMUZIK‘s anticipated For Professional Use Only 2 album, but that hasn’t stopped the Rhode Island producer from sharing some killer samples with his fans. Today, he’s offering “New Day” a glittery yet powerful, synth-heavy track. Listen via Spotify. [Stereogum]
