  • Need to chill? Moby‘s got you covered with this four hour mix titled Long Ambients 1: Calm. Sleep. He explains, “it’s really quiet: no drums, no vocals, just very slow calm pretty chords and sounds and things for sleeping and yoga and etc.” Hey, if it works for a busy dude like Moby…! Download it for free here.

  • Last night, KEXP fave Father John Misty surprised the audience in Santa Ana, California with a cover of both Rihanna’s pop hit “Kiss It Better” and the 1978 Springsteen/Smith single “Because the Night.” Watch fan-shot video of both performances below. Who knows what covers he’ll perform on Wednesday, April 6th at The Paramount? [Pitchfork]

  • Dan Bejar (aka Destroyer) unveils the track “My Mystery,” a leftover from last year’s full-length Poison Season that will be released on its own in 12″ version on May 6th via Merge. Today, he shares the remix by DJ (a member of Destroyer’s live band). Bejar explains, “We recorded a song called “My Mystery” a year and a half ago. Kind of a light number, vaguely danceable. Wistful, looking back not unfondly on time spent and dull misadventures had within the dead-as-a-doornail music industry. And the feeling of where it leaves you, like a rat in the middle of the ocean, though not as harsh as that; as if rats could swim an ocean’s length. Then one day DJ called me up and said, ‘You got any shit for me?’…” Listen below: [Stereogum]

  • Australian alt-rock veterans The Church debut a new video today for the track “Let Us Go” off 2014’s Further/Deeper (the band’s 24th album in all). Frontman Steve Kilbey describes the track as “a pretty standard Church song,” adding, “It’s a bit New Romantic-y with that synthesizer, giving a 1980s kind of bounce to it, something we don’t have a lot of. And we haven’t done it a lot live but when we did, it was heading towards a really cool thing at the end.” Watch the clip below. The band are about to kick off an 18-date U.S. tour on April 8th in Dallas, performing their 1982 album The Blurred Crusade alongside other Church faves. [Under the Radar]
