  • Scottish band Frightened Rabbit share a video for the song “Get Out,” a single off their upcoming album Painting of a Panic Attack. The poignant clip, directed by Greg Davenport, was shot in Kiev, Ukraine, and captures the struggle of two women in love. Painting of a Panic Attack was produced by Aaron Dessner of The National, and hits stores April 8th via Canvasback/Atlantic. The band will be LIVE on KEXP on Tuesday, April 19th at Noon PT, and will be playing the Sasquatch Music Festival on Memorial Day weekend. [Under the Radar]

  • Get ready for a confetti explosion with this latest clip from Seattle sweethearts Tacocat. The video for “I Hate The Weekend” portrays the cutie quartet with piƱata-style heads at a candy-crazed hour party. You can find the track on their forthcoming full-length Lost Time, out April 1st via Hardly Art. [Stereogum]

  • It’s been five years since the last Fleet Foxes album, but we’ve been keeping an eye on frontman Robin Pecknold, who moved from Seattle to New York to attend Columbia University. Pecknold is currently on tour in Europe with Joanna Newsom, where a fan captured footage of him performing a new track. Could a follow-up to 2011’s Helplessness Blues be on the way? Watch below: [Spin]

  • And breaking my streak of a News Roundup with all animal-related band names (Frightened Rabbit, Tacocat, Fleet Foxes), we’ve got a new track to share from Brooklyn psych-boys Yeasayer. Check out the single “Silly Me” below. You can find the track on their upcoming album Amen & Goodbye out April 1st on Mute. [Pitchfork]
