  • The Flaming Lips pulled off a hilarious April Fool’s joke when they released Flaming Side of the Moon as “a companion piece to Pink Floyd‘s Dark Side of the Moon.” Now the album does really exist, but it turns out that it was all part of a big stunt by the band and Funny or Die. Watch the band “sell out” below. [CoS]


  • Jack White announced that his new album called Lazaretto, the first since 2012’s Blunderbuss, will drop on June 10. The new album will be release through his own record label Third Man and a limited edition will also be available. It will include a poster, a 40 page book of lyrics, and a 7″ demo. Now, check out the first album track, the bold instrumental “High Ball Stepper.” [Pitchfork]

  • Head over HERE to take a listen to Oklahoma band Horse Thief‘s newest offering “Little Dust” off their upcoming album Fear In Bliss. It’s a bright folk-rock song reminiscent of the also equine inclined Band of Horses. Fear In Bliss drops on April 15. [Stereogum]
  • Cloud Nothings shared their video for “I’m Not Part of Me”, the closing track off their recent album Here and Nowhere Else. The video starts with a typical sleepover for teenage girls, but soon takes a twisted turn when the girls indulge in a some odd potion. [Pitchfork]
