New Deerhoof - Fete d’Adieu

This excellent new track from wonky art-rock San Francisco veterans Deerhoof comes from the band's 12th record Breakup Songs. The LP is slated for release September 4 via Polyvinyl Records, but for now check out "Fete d’Adieu" below.

New Lindstrøm - Rà-àkõ-st

From his second album this year, Lindstrøm has just unveiled the eight-plus minute edit of "Rà-àkõ-st." The bouncy epic is the lead track from Smalhans, which is slated for release November 6, via the producer's frequent label Smalltown Supersound. You can listen to the track below.

New Ab-Soul - Nibiru

California rapper Ab-Soul's newest drop "Nibiru," produced by JMSN, hints at a lot of conspiracy theories, which I'm not sure he or the listener cares to believe. Regardless, it's pretty damn good. Check it out below.

New Animal Collective video - Today's Supernatural

There's a certain fear-threshold for music videos. Whether it be graphic nature, horror-inducing scope, or just plain displayed insanity, there's only so much the viewer can generally take. And while Danny Perez's new video for Animal Collective's "Today's Supernatural" isn't a violent video, the controlled insanity of a clown-garbed Avey Tare driving a dragon go-kart through the desert during a painstakingly unconventional song may scare some off.

Check it out for yourselves below and grab Centipede Hz early next month.

Our Newest Obsession: The Orwells

It's been a while hasn't it? If we're keeping tabs on the Our Newest Obsession series, than The Orwells are the first band included since Guadalupe Plata in December of last year. Surely I had to come across someone or something that could gain my attention within that nine month gap, but it seems as though I haven't.

So what is it about The Orwells then that has made their interest peak so much in the past few days? Pieces in Prefix Mag and Aquarium Drunkard certainly help, covering the bases of the emerging Chicago five-piece.  Well, not Chicago exactly - Elmhurst, a Chicago suburb. Guitarist Baby Chuck described it as, "a great place for parents, a shitty place for teenagers." That usually seems to be a healthy combination for down-and-out but disturbingly invigorating garage rock that sounds bigger than it seems.

Their new album Remember When, which is out now, is full of the tough gnarl that seems a little too perfect to be made by a bunch of 18 and 19-year-olds. Regardless, it's records like this that earn a permanent spot of whatever shelf you have - be in physical or digital - cursing and cruising through 60s-inspired mashes.

You can, and more than likely should listen to Remember When now over at Spotify. And keep tabs on the band whenever they reach their 20s.

New King Krule - Rock Bottom

Eighteen-year-old phenom King Krule (aka Archy Marshall) is an unquestioned rarity. His positively untouched, heavy English accent doesn't fit by the wayside in any of his work. His newest, post his explosive five-track self-titled EP released last year, is a full band outlet "Rock Bottom." His voice is still the obvious centerpiece, but we're getting the hear a little more of what Marshall is truly capable of. Check out the track below.

TNGHT's 'Mission Statement' Mix

As part of Diplo's BBC 1 Radio show, you can download (or stream below) TNGHT's uncensored "Mission Statement" mix. The hour-long segment is chock full of familiar goodies, from Kanye West to SpaceGhostPurrp. Check it out below.

Grimes on Fallon

Last night, Grimes made her U.S. debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, performing her standout track "Genesis" from last spring's Visions. Check out the live performance below.

New Ty Segall - The Hill

Never really taking his sweet time, Ty Segall released "The Hill," a new single from his upcoming solo LP Twins. The intro is a bit left-field, with an older flower pop 60s vibe. Until Segall's distorted reverb kicks back to boast the soft vocals. Check it out below and grab Twins this October.
