  • Canadian quintet The Besnard Lakes return with a vengeance, announcing both a new album and a new EP on the horizon. Stream the single “Golden Lion” below, off the full-length A Coliseum Complex Museum, out January 22, 2016 via Jagjaguwar, and the title track on a separate EP out November 13th. A limited number of pre-orders for the release will come with a metal sigil handcrafted by bassist/vocalist Olga Goreas, who explains in a press release, “I made 11 sigils after my dad passed away almost four years ago. Each sigil has a particular meaning and there are 11 of them because he died in November of 2011 and numerologically speaking, 11 represents a rebuilding of sorts. In a way, our last album was about endings and this album is about beginning again.” [Under the Radar]

  • Dreampop duo of Keep Shelly in Athens share a full-album stream of their sophomore album, Now I’m Ready, out this Friday, October 16th via Friends of Friends. Listen below. The release spotlights new vocalist Myrtha, who replaces founding member Sarah P, who left the group last year and started her solo project, Fina Fisken. [Consequence of Sound]
