  • Electronic artist Will Wiesenfeld, better known by his stage name Baths, announced his new EP titled Ocean Death, which will be released on May 6, and has shared the album’s title track. Don’t let the first few seconds of soothing ocean sounds fool you, it quickly becomes dark and brooding. It’s aan excellent juxtaposition. [Pitchfork]

  • Earlier this month Cut Copy taped an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and it finally aired last night. The Australian band performed “Meet Me In A House of Love” and “We Are Explorers,” both are tracks off their 2013 album Free Your Mind. [CoS]

  • Devonté Hynes, also known as Blood Orange, composed the score for the film adaptation of James Franco’s book Palo Alto. Listen to the title track “Palo Alto” below. It’s a sensual, slow-burner that features Samantha Urbani of Friends. [Stereogum]

  • On Wednesday night unsuspecting patrons of London’s Red Lion pub enjoyed an impromptu performance by rock superstar Damon Albarn. Watch him and the pub’s band The Gents hype up the crowd with Blur’s track “Parklife,” below. Albarn’s debut solo album Everyday Robots drops on April 28. [Pitchfork]
