Cut Copy – Free Your Mind

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.

Free Your Mind will be released on November 5 through Loma Vista/Modular.

KHUSHI – Magpie

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.

Tea Leigh – Rushing In

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.

Arcade Fire – Reflektor

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 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.
