Night Moves - Country Queen

Don't let the song title throw you off. Minneapolis band Night Moves' "Country Queen" is a fantastic anthem from their increasingly hyped Colored Emotions LP, which is set for release October 9 via Domino. The single comes months after the release of their "Headlights" 7", which you should take your time to listen to below as well.

Eyes Lips Eyes - What You Want (If You Want) EP stream

An energizing blend of crashing dance rock, Eyes Lips Eyes brand new What You Want (If You Want) EP is a four-track mash of pleasure inducing music that seemingly comes from no where. The name is fairly unfamiliar, but the sounds aren't. Tightly constructed, the EP, which you can stream below, is one of the nicer left-field productions this month from a band that should become more familiar in the coming weeks.

Check it out here via Spinner.

Sleigh Bells on 'No Reservations'

Anyone who knows me personally will note my appreciation for cult food personality Anthony Bourdain. The chef/author/TV show host isn't the typical celebrity chef, shilling bad products for a stuffy audience; he's pretty badass. A notable American punk rock fan (The Ramones remain his favorite band), Bourdain travels the world eating whatever any one else will, experiencing anything and everything he can along the way.

In the upcoming final season of his Travel Channel show No Reservations, Bourdain heads down to Austin. During his time, he meets up with Sleigh Bells and friends to cook and play in the suburbs, and, what the hell, throw on another tattoo. Check out the clip below and watch the season premiere September 3 at 9 p.m. on Travel Channel.

New Grimes video - Genesis

I have no idea what Grimes wants in life, what amuses her, what she finds interesting, what she needs, what she desires, what she fears, or what she wants to be when she's older. I don't know. I just don't know. Here's her new video for "Genesis," which she directed.

New Diplo video - Set It Off

Diplo's Express Yourself EP is an apparent ass-shaking dream. The video for the title track showcases the Philadelphia producers affinity for it, and the newest video for "Set It Off" doesn't stop it. The video's stars a never-ending pole of strippers spinning into space for your enjoyment. Check it out below.

New Dinosaur Jr. video - Watch The Corners

The newest video for Dinosaur Jr.'s "Watch The Corners" is a grocery-themed romance, starring (!) Tim Heidecker as the concerning father of the female lead. I will note that Heidecker fans might recognize his character's affinity for model airplanes. The music's good too. Check the video out below via Funny or Die, and grab Dinosaur Jr.'s new album I Bet On Sky, September 18.

New Kendrick Lamar - Westside, Right On Time (ft. Young Jeezy)

The huge track, "Westside, Right On Time" is sure to be one of the album's bigger singles unless more like it keep churning out. Check it out below.
