  • We were lucky to get The Both (that’s Aimee Mann and Ted Leo) in The Cutting Room studios for a live KEXP session earlier this month, and Vulture.com lucked out into getting the duo to perform a medley of TV theme songs. Watch and see if you can name every show below: [Pitchfork]

  • Morrissey has shared a new track from his upcoming release, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, out July 15th on Harvest. Check out the track “Istanbul” below, via Spotify. [Stereogum]

  • The new Conor Oberst album is one of the highlights of this week’s new releases, and last night he performed the track “Zigzagging Toward the Light” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, backed by the band Dawes. [Consequence of Sound]

  • For their North American tour, The Knife have livened up some of their songs into more theatrical versions. These “Shaken-Up” editions will be available on a mini-album next month. The Swedish duo shared an eclectic video by director Bitte Anderson of the 2013 Shaking the Habitual track “Without You My Life Would Be Boring (Shaken-Up Version).” [Stereogum]

  • Four Tet has produced a new track for Atlanta rapper Rome Fortune called “One Time For.” Four Tet has played the track during radio broadcasts, but this is the first time it has been available by itself. The duo also worked together on another yet-to-be-released track. [Pitchfork]

  • Ed Schrader’s Music Beat have released their sophomore album Party Jail today via Infinity Cat. In honor of the release, the band has shared the quirky video for album track “Laughing,” which features mask-wearing singles diving into the world of online dating. [Stereogum]

  • Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers will hit the road this summer to promote their upcoming LP Hypnotic Eye, their first album in four years and 13th overall (out July 29). The extensive North American tour will bring them to Washington at The Gorge on August 15, so don’t miss it. Check out the tour’s teaser trailer below. [CoS]
