The Head and the Heart have dropped their debut single “Shake” from Let’s Be Still (out October 15). The flawless harmonies and punchy percussion give me a bit of a Fleetwood Mac vibe.

The darkwave music project of Wesley Eisold, Cold Cave, has released a new single from the two-track EP Oceans With No End. True to Eisold’s style, “People are Poison” is a blend of pessimistic lyrics and raving synthesized percussion.
