Toro y Moi, aka Chaz Bundick, dropped a new one today titled Campo. It’s a part of a new 7″ that’ll be available exclusively on his forthcoming tour of North America.
The 7″ will also feature another new tune called Outside With You. Stream Campo down below.
Cut Copy are streaming the title track from their eagerly-awaited new album, Free Your Mind. It’s an album I’m really excited about, and this really great-sounding title track is doing absolutely nothing to help contain that excitement. The album was mixed by the legendary Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala, MGMT), and it’s the groups’ follow-up to 2011’s Zonoscope. Listen to the psyched-out jam down below.

Ducktails will follow-up his recent album, The Flower Lane, with a new EP coming out October 22. The EP is called Wish Hotel and this is the lead single, which you can get your hands on right here.
Pre-order the 12″ here.
Listen to the brilliant Letter Of Intent, from The Flower Lane LP.
Was just sent a link to Magpie, the fantastic debut single by London-based artist KHUSHI, and I can’t get enough of it. Listening to this track, it’s easy to see where the comparisons to bands like The National and Bon Iver are coming from. With bands like Mumford & Sons doing so much damage to the genre, it’s really encouraging to see up and coming artists like KHUSHI breathing new life into modern folk music.
Magpie will be released on October 7 via Laissez Faire Club. Pre-order it here.
Jacques Greene today dropped an incredible extended remix of one of my favourite songs of the year, Autre Ne Veut’s Play By Play.
The original version features on Autre Ne Veut’s outstanding LP, Anxiety, and you can get your copy of Greene’s remix here.
Julia Holter’s new record, Loud City Song, is out now on Domino Records. Grab your copy here.
Wolf Alice have released yet another brilliant new song, displaying not only their versatility but just why they’re one of the best new bands around. Their latest song is called Blush, and it’s the title track from the London groups’ forthcoming Blush EP which drops October 14 on Chess Club.
Pre-order the Blush EP here.
Sam McDougle, aka Polly Hi, recently released a new 7″ featuring two absolutely brilliant tracks called Mouses and Carousel. Both of these songs really take me back to Chutes Too Narrow-era The Shins, with their almost carefree vibes and blissful melodies. Thanks to I Guess I’m Floating for sharing.
Stream and download both of the tracks for free down below. You’d be nuts not to.
Tea Leigh may have released the video for Rushing In a couple of months ago, but typically I’m only discovering it now. Rushing In is a lovely song, and one that I had to share with you all, despite of when it was released.
The lyrics are heartfelt and rather intimate at times, and the gently picked guitar makes for a very charming and inviting listen. It’s simply a gorgeous track, and one that fans of Sufjan Stevens, Youth Lagoon and Cocorosie will enjoy.
Watch the beautifully shot video for Rushing In below.
The wait is finally over. Arcade Fire are back, and today they shared an amazing interactive video for their brand new single, Reflektor. Go to justareflektor.com to experience it. The video was written and directed by longtime Arcade Fire collaborator Vincent Morisset and filmed in Haiti.
Reflektor is out October 29 via Merge.
Reflektor video, part II: directed by Anton Corbijn.
