  • If you missed The Jesus and Mary Chain on their recent stop at The Showbox, you can at least pick up the new live album they’ve just announced: Live at Barrowlands. Originally released for Record Store Day, the 2008 Scottish show celebrated the 30th anniversary of their debut, Psychocandy, and will be reissued as a deluxe LP/CD or 10-inch vinyl on July 31st via Demon.

  • If you’ve ever wanted to see Damon Albarn dressed as an ice cream cone, today is your lucky day. UK pop kings Blur have shared a new animated video for the track “Ong Ong,” inspired by classic ’80s video games. Stick it out through the end credits; it’s very cute. Find the single on their latest full-length, The Magic Whip, out now via Warner Bros. [Under the Radar]

  • Milwaukee trio Jaill return with a new album of psych-pop fun titled Brain Cream, and today they share the gleeful single “Getaway.” Check it out below. Brain Cream hits stores June 30th via Burger Records. [Stereogum]

  • Wearing a fantastic Bill Murray t-shirt, Australian artist Courtney Barnett stopped by Conan last night for a fantastic performance of “Dead Fox.” Watch below, and watch her most recent KEXP session on the KEXP Blog here.
