  • Today, Foals have dropped their new album, What Went Down, the follow up to 2013’s impressive Holy Fire. The 10-track collection was recorded in France and produced by James Ford, who’s worked with artist such as Florence and the Machine and the Arctic Monkeys. What Went Down can be streamed in its entirety below via Spotify. [CoS]

  • Last year, during a three show residency in their hometown of Boston, Speedy Ortiz decided they wanted to perform different songs for every show. Naturally, this meant that they had to break out some covers. One in particular is the moody Cardigans’ track “Hanging Around.” [Stereogum]

  • Chris Walla, founding member of Death Cab for Cutie, will release a sophomore solo album on October 19. Tape Loops is a 5-track entirely instrumental record, with some songs reaching up to 11 minutes in length. Listen to the album’s first single, “Kanta’s Theme”, over on Interview. [SPIN]
  • Seattle trio The Gods Themselves shared a new song called “Stop/Listen,” which will be featured on their sophomore venture, Pink Noise (out October 2). It’s a “far-out” and “groovy” track that’ll make you feel like you fell asleep and woke up somewhere in the early 70s. [CMJ]
