  • Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings continued their triumphant return to the stage last night on Conan. This soulful performance of their new single “Retreat!” proves that Jones’ recent battle with cancer has not dampened her spirits. Their flawless new album Give The People What They Want is out now. [Stereogum]

  • To promote their live covers series “Like A Version,” Australian radio station Triple J had Jagwar Ma perform their cover of Arctic Monkeys’ “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High.” Check out their trippy take on the track below. [Pitchfork]

  • Beck won’t drop his much-anticipated album, Morning Phase, until February 25, but he’s shared a trailer that reminds us that it’ll be worth the wait. No only do we get a glimpse of him actually cutting the album, but Beck has also included a preview of the album track “Blue Moon.” [CoS]

  • The Soft Moon have shared a dizzying new track called “Feel.” This is the frist we’ve heard from them since the 2012 album Zeroes. It’s a punky,power ballad that would fit perfectly into an 80s action flick. [Stereogum]
