  • Evocative Canadian artist Peaches shares a fun new video for the track “I Mean Something” off her latest album Rub, out now via I U She Music/INgrooves. In the clip, directed by Silas Howard, Peaches parties at the pool with burlesque legends Kitten Natividad, Satans Angel, Tiffany Carter, Dusty Summers, and Shannon Doah. (Sadly, although Feist sings on the track, she doesn’t make a splash in the film.) Watch below: [Under the Radar]

  • Minneapolis-based hip hop label Rhymesayers celebrates their 20th anniversary this year, and some of the biggest names on the roster have teamed up for this collaborative track: hear Atmosphere joined by Aesop Rock and Blueprint on the single “The Lonely Rose.” Both Atmosphere and Aesop Rock are on the line-up for the Rhymesayers 20th Anniversary show on December 4th at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

  • Goth-pop icons The Cure have announced dates for their 2016 North American tour, including a suspicious gap in the Northwest around Memorial Day weekend, hmmmm… What could that mean? Their website states, the tour will “present Robert Smith (voice/guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), Roger O’Donnell (keys), and Reeves Gabrels (guitar) as they explore 37 years of Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites and as yet unreleased tracks in a brand new stage production that promises to be the ‘must see’ show of the year!” [Under the Radar]
  • On the eve of their UK tour, FIDLAR and Bully have teamed up to cover The Magnetic Fields. Hear their take on the 69 Love Songs track “Absolutely Cuckoo” below. Their version was apparently recorded at a Quality Inn in Portland, and features a lo-fi clip of “singing” cats and dogs. [Consequence of Sound]
