Tegan and Sara announce new album: Love You To Death

Heartthrob pop maestro siblings (so many adjectives) have announced their followup to 2013’s Heartthrob (see what I did there?), which was produced by Greg Kurstin who produced the aforementioned album (I’m not saying it a third time).

After sharing the stage with pop mainstream giants Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, they twins seem excited to hop back on the road and connect with their fans. Check out the three tour dates they have announced so far and be on the lookout for more . New music and a pre-order for the new album are teased to drop on April 8.

May 2 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Roxy Theatre
May 3 – Los Angeles, CA @ Teragram Ballroom
May 9 – New York, NY @ Le Poisson Rouge

Yeasayer debut new song “Silly Me”

In preparation for their upcoming release Amen & Goodbye, the trippy groovsters have put out their third single from the album titled “Silly Me.” It’s definitely got a bit more of a pop bite to, which by no means is a bad thing. Check out the track below, preorder the album from their website on pretty colored vinyl, and make sure to see the band as they set out on tour.

Peter, Bjorn, & John announce new album, release new single

It’s been way too long since PB&J released an album (since 2011’s Gimme Some) but the silence has finally been broken with the news that Breakin’ Point will be hitting shelves June 10. The band recruited outside producers for this album, including Paul Epworth and Greg Kurstin–whose name should sound familiar since he also produced the new Tegan & Sara album mentioned earlier. On their collaboration with the producers, Björn Yttling said “It wasn’t that we just brought in anyone. We really respect what these guys do. We wanted to make pop music that was relevant now and not in a fantasy world of what we thought would be relevant…”

Check out their latest single “What You Talking About?” above.

Dowsing release new single, announce new album, keep being awesome

Pop-punk / emo cool kids Dowsing have been through a hell of a lot lately and it shows in their latest single’s lyrics / doesn’t show in how they continue to impress us and put out more awesome music. The new single “Kept Me Around” premiered on Stereogum the other day and discusses the pain that relationships tend to bring to the table, more specifically how we tend to push away people we care for the most when times get rough. Take a listen to the new track above, which will appear on their third full length album OKAY, out April 29 and available to preorder on split black/white vinyl from Asian Man Records.

The Dirty Nil release music video for “Wrestle Yü to Husker Dü”

The dudes from The Dirty Nil released their debut full-length “Higher Power” at the tail end of last month and are quickly proving to be one of our favorite new bands. The band isn’t slowing down either. They are currently touring and just released a video for their track “Wrestly Yü to Husker Dü,” which features a live performance, smoke bombs, and a broken drum set. Check it out above.

Amanda Palmer releases new track “Machette”

When not being a badass mom, writing books, or being an inspiring blogger, Amanda Palmer sometimes sneaks into the studio and creates new music. Like her David Bowie tribute EP and her latest full-band track “Machette” that just premiered on Stereogum. It’s the full blown punk cabaret powerhouse we’ve come to know of Palmer with herself on vocals and piano, Ben Folds on drums, Jherek Bischoff on bass and strings, and Ryan Lerman on guitar. It’s a hell of a way to spend 6 minutes. Take a listen above.

The Story So Far release music video for “Heavy Gloom”

The second VHS filmed music video on the list, The Story So Far released a video for the track “Heavy Gloom” which features skateboards, peeing in corners, and security officers. The band is about to set out on tour starting with a stop at A Day To Remember’s Self Help Festival in California next weekend, then on their own headlining tour with Comeback Kid. Check out the video above and make sure to pick up their self-titled album on Pure Noise Records (on a super cool limited pressing blue/pink/cream swirl vinyl).
