  • Today, indie rock duo The Raveonettes pulled a Beyonce and surprise released their album Pe’ahi,named after a surfing spot in Maui. The opening track “Endless Sleeper” according to Sune Rose Wagner refers to “a horrific near-drowning experience I had in Hawaii some years ago. It’s about taking risks in order to exist.” Watch the song’s lyric video below. [Pitchfork]


  • Eddie Vedder performed a solo set at Portugal’s Super Bock Super Rock festival last weekend. During the show he invited Cat Marshall (of Cat Power) onstage to sing “Tonight You Belong To Me,” a song they recorded together in 2011.

  • Zammutto will release his second solo album Anchor on September 2. Over at NPR you can hear the album track “Hegemony.” It’s a bit of a contradiction, full of intense percussions and airy female vocals. [Stereogum]
