  • James Cargill of Broadcast shared an unreleased demo called “Tunnel View” in honor of what would have been frontwoman Trish Keenan’s 49th birthday today. Keenan tragically passed away in 2011 from bird flu. Whether this is part of the mythical album that Broadcast was working on before she died is unclear. Cargill released an album under the name Children Of Alice earlier this year via Warp. [ FACT ]

  • Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg of First Aid Kit have released their second song since 2014’s Stay Gold. Called “It’s A Shame,” the folk Americana single was produced by Tucker Martine in Portland and is “a plea to live in the moment because everyone disposes of each other eventually.” The duo previously shared the track “You Are the Problem Here” for International Women’s Day.

  • Princess Nokia re-released her 2016 mixtape 1992 as a deluxe version with extra tracks recently. Today she shared a double feature video for two of the songs off the album, “Bart Simpson” and “Green Line.” The video recreates scenes from high school and her neighborhood in Queens. Nokia also launched a GoFundMe relief page to raise funds to help those affected by Hurricane Maria, which devastated her home country of Puerto Rico. Princess Nokia will be playing two shows in one night at the Crocodile on Wednesday, November 22. [ The FADER ]
