  • It’s been six years, but former Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis returns with her third solo album, Voyager, this July on Warner Bros Records. She explained to the Charleston City Paper, “I worked on these songs for a long time so there’s no stone unturned, lyrically. I thought about them while walking on the mountain near my house. I thought about them while flying on airplanes. I thought about them while lying awake with terrible insomnia. I finished them standing in line at Vons. While I was brushing my teeth. I was obsessed. So I feel like they’re done. My poem is finished.” Lewis hits the music festival circuit this summer; stay tuned for a future Seattle show. [Spin]
  • Jagjaguwar has shared this beautifully-produced live video of Angel Olsen performing the track “High & Wild” live from London. When it leaves you wanting more, check out her full-length album, Burn Your Fire For No Witness, or catch her at Pickathon the weekend of August 1-3. [Under the Radar]

  • Poliça have also shared a new live video, eerily enough, also filmed in London. What’s up with that? But, in their case, it’s a collaboration with clothing company, AllSaints. Watch the videos below, for which the word “eerie” is apropos. [Under the Radar]

  • Montreal-based producer CFCF has announced a new EP, titled Outsiders, featuring outtakes and remixes from his most recent full-length, Outside. Check out the track “Windswept” below, and pick up the release 5/20 via Paperbag Records. [Stereogum]

  • You may have already heard when the Twittersphere exploded yesterday evening, but Morrissey is now “tweeting” via the handle @ItsMorrissey. A representative has confirmed, it’s really him behind the tweets, and frankly, we can’t wait to see what he has to say in 140 characters or less. [Pitchfork]
