  • If you’ve ever wanted to put Nick Cave in your pocket, now’s your chance! LA-based toy company Plasticgod will release six different variations of a mini-figurine based on the iconic frontman, each named after a different song of his. Just check out the detail in the “Red Right Hand” model! Each lil’ guy will set you back $40, and only 200 of each design will be produced. The little Nicks debut at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, July 9-12. [Pitchfork]

  • Hopefully you caught that blistering in-studio session from Titus Andronicus today on The Morning Show on KEXP: the Jersey-based band gave us a sneak peek at their forthcoming full-length The Most Lamentable Tragedy, an epic rock opera about manic depression. In this short film, titled The Magic Morning, you can preview even more new songs, and even a Daniel Johnston cover. But, wait there’s more! The band also threw in a streamable single for the ultra-fierce “Fired Up.” Check it all out below. The Most Lamentable Tragedy hits stores on July 28th via Merge Records. [Stereogum]

  • Crystal Castles continue to climb, despite the departure of vocalist and founding member Alice Glass late last year. With a new voice on board, credited only as “Edith,” producer Ethan Kath shares the new track “Deicide,” a pulsing electronic jam. Stream the single below. Crystal Castles continues work on a new full-length. [Consequence of Sound]

  • In an perfect pairing, beloved bassist Kim Deal (formerly of The Pixies and The Breeders) chats with Aussie singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett for The Talkhouse Music Podcast. Together, they commiserate on their experiences being a 27-year-old, drinking, working in a studio, and more. Listen to the charming chat below: [Spin]
