  • A Sunny Day in Glasgow shared their video for “In Love With Useless (The Timeless Geometry In The Tradition Of Passing).” The forrest scenery is beautiful and the playful nature of the video perfectly compliments the track. The dream-pop sextet released their fourth studio album Sea When Absent earlier this week. [Stereogum]

  • Claire Boucher, better known as Grimes, joined forces with producer Blood Diamond for her newest single “Go.” She originally wrote the song for Rihanna, but she made the right decision to record it herself. It’s a hard-hitting, stunner that any purveyor of pop music will love. [CMJ]

  • Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams has released a new track called “Gimmie Something Good,” hopefully this single will be the prefect gateway for him to announce his 14th studio album. The song was expertly produced by Glyn Jones (The Who, Led Zepplin), check it out. [CoS]

Listen to “Gimmie Something Good” HERE.

  • Last night, Spoon stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to promote their tour and upcoming album. They performed two new songs “Rent I Pay” and “Rainy Taxi.” They Want My Soul drops on August 5 via Loma Vista. Don’t forget to catch them at the Capitol Hill Block Party on July 25. [Pitchfork]
