  • Australian dance masters Cut Copy have announced they’ll be releasing a deluxe edition of last year’s amazing album, Free Your Mind. This expanded edition comes out July 22nd on Loma Vista Records, and will feature five new songs taken from the album’s recording session (including the two used on the 2013 Record Store Day 10″). The band have also shared a new video for the track “Meet Me in a House of Love” — meet it below: [Spin]

  • Our friends at Sub Pop Records have launched a digital subscription service through the platform today. For a monthly fee of $10, Sub Pop fans will receive new releases, singles, and other exclusives from the label. You’ll want to hurry to sign-up: the first 100 subscribers will be entered to win a super rare prize pack (which includes our Mudhoney on Top Record Store Day 12″!) [Pitchfork]
  • Yesterday, Austra released a new EP, titled Habitat, on Domino Records, and today, you can stream the electropop goodness online. Frontwoman Katie Stelmanis explains, “‘Habitat’ is an old song that we’ve waited almost three years to release. It didn’t seem to fit with the sounds of Feel it Break or Olympia, so we decided to finally put it out as a single along with 3 new instrumental tracks.” Hear ‘em all below: [Consequence of Sound]

  • Arctic Monkeys have shared a new video today for the track “Snap Out Of It” off their most recent release, AM. Watch actress Stephanie Sigman watch the band in the recording studios below: [Under the Radar]

  • Tom Krell, aka How to Dress Well, is releasing his third album, What Is This Heart?, on June 24th via Weird World/Domino. The press release notes the album “takes influence from artists as varied as Prince, Lou Reed, Burial and Tracy Chapman,” and you can stream the whole thing at his website today.
