  • Ever since the album premiere party for the new Shabazz Palaces album, we can’t get the new songs out of our head — especially the track “They Come In Gold.” So, thank goodness Sub Pop Records has shared this non-video with us. The new album, Lese Majesty, comes out June 25th. [The Stranger’s Line Out]

  • Bright Eyes mastermind Conor Oberst also has a new album, titled Upside Down Mountain, coming out May 20th on Nonesuch Records. Among his just-announced US tour dates is a September 30th stop at the Showbox at the Market. [Under the Radar]
  • The Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser stopped by Conan last night to perform the track “Alexandra” from his forthcoming release, Black Hours, out June 3 via Ribbon Music. He’ll be LIVE on KEXP on Friday, June 6th from The Cutting Room Studios in NYC. Stay on top of more late-night TV performances with KEXP’s TV Eye series. [Pitchfork]

  • Atlanta indiepop band Gold-Bears share an absolutely joyful track from their upcoming sophomore release, Dalliance, out 6/3 on Slumberland Records. Stream the song “Yeah, Tonight” below: [Stereogum]

  • Seattle’s own Constant Lovers have shared a creepy new video for the track “Amazon Trickle,” off their latest full-length, Experience Feelings, out now on Good to Die Records. Who had to shave for that video? [Stereogum]
