  • Karen O has released her new live album, Live From Crush Palace, a week early exclusively on Spotify. The album features live recording from her Crush album as well as a live version of the Oscar nominated “Moon Song.” Check out the playlist below. [Pitchfork]

  • Minneapolis indie rock vets The Replacements will return to Seattle, following their excellent performance at Bumbershoot last year, as part of their “Back By Unpopular Demand” tour, this Spring. So far, 13 shows in the U.S. have been announced, beginning with their April 9 appearance at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, February 13, at 10AM PST. Check here for those, and here for other shows.
  • It’s been four years since Florence + the Machine released the brilliant Ceremonials. Today, Florence unveiled a new single and video called “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.” It’s a sprawling, mostly instrumental number that has brief moments of Florence’s otherworldly vocals. Sadly, there’s no official news of a new album, but this is definitely a step in the right direction. [Stereogum]

  • Indie dance duo Matt and Kim will drop their latest studio album, New Glow, on April 7. They’ve shared “Hey Now,” an adorable bluesy number that is accompanied by an even cuter video. Also, I really applaud Kim’s fearless dance skills. [CoS]

  • Swedish singer-songwriter The Tallest Man on Earth, a.k.a. Kristian Matsson, has confirmed his plans to release a new album. The follow-up to 2012’s There’s No Leaving Now is called Dark Bird Is Home and will drop on May 12. Watch the album trailer below. [CoS]
