  • We’ve already shared a couple of new tracks from the upcoming solo release from Broken Social Scene frontman Kevin Drew, but now you can stream the whole darn thing, thanks to NPR Music. Drew’s album, Darlings, hits stores on March 18th on Arts & Crafts. [NPR Music]

  • You can also stream the upcoming release from The War on Drugs, titled Lost in the Dream, out March 18th on Secretly Canadian. Hear them LIVE on KEXP Friday, March 28th at 1:00 PM, and you can catch them at The Neptune later that night. [Pitchfork]

  • What would it sound like if Beach Fossils’ Dustin Payseur, Wild Nothing’s Jack Tatum, and Holograms’ Andreas Lagerström formed a supergroup called The Snow? Pretty much just how you’d expect: shimmery guitars, melancholy vocals, and new wave bass lines. Captured Tracks will release their debut 7″ single on Record Store Day, April 19th. Stream the a-side below. [Stereogum]

  • Last year’s album, Blowout, from Brooklyn band The So So Glos is “an adrenaline-fueled sound with revved-up guitars, punchy rhythms, impassioned vocals, infectious sing-along choruses and irresistible song hooks,” so says KEXP’s Music Director, Don Yates. Today, they’ve shared an animated video for the title track that’s every bit as exuberant as they are. Watch below. [NME]

  • Inspired to take a crack at a music video of your own now? Why not try your hand at a video from The Men? Their label, Sacred Bones, and music website Consequence of Sound are looking for someone to direct a video for the track “Different Days” off their latest, Tomorrow’s Hits. Entries are due on April 4th, so learn how to submit your clip at their site today! [Consequence of Sound]
