PMA Premiere: Local Natives – “Wide Eyes” (Suckers Remix)

Suckers’ long waited debut album, Wild Smile is out June 8 on Frenchkiss. To promote their upcoming LP, the band has embarked on a month-long tour with labelmates Local Natives.

Vinyl Giveaway: The Dead Weather and Ariel Pink 7s

Well look-y here, two very awesome 7″ singles happen to have dropped on my lap today. The first one comes from Jack White’s rock superhero group The Dead Weather, whose new album Sea of Cowards was released on Tuesday. Cowards, to be frank, is the perfect marriage of Blues and high-octane garage rock and it’s just what the doctor ordered. Today we’re giving away a 7″ vinyl “Die By The Drop” vinyl, along with the album on CD and mask/poster/sticker combo. The second part of the giveaway is an autographed exclusive limited edition UK-only pressing of Ariel Pink’s 7″ “Round & Round” single, and some other goodies. Click here to enter.

M.I.A. – “XXXO” (Blaqstarr Version)

The Drums – “It Will All End In Tears”

Brooklyn’s The Drums are giving away another track from their hotly tipped self-titled, debut album, due out June 8th on Island Records. “It Will All End In Tears” sounds a bit too melancholy for a surf indie pop, but something tells me that this song will get a lot of beach air-time. I mean, dwindling summer romances need a soundtrack too. (Read more to LISTEN/DOWNLOAD)

The New Twilight Soundtrack Rules, as per usual

Let me get this straight — the soundtrack for the third Twilight movie Eclipse features new music from Muse, Vampire Weekend, Sia, The Dead Weather, Metric, and even features a duet from Beck and Bat For Lashes? Would would be even more interesting is to see a chart that depicts what percentage of Twilight fans even appreciate the magnitude of epic the Twilight Saga franchise/Alex Patsavas puts into their soundtracks.

Florence + The Machine – “Cosmic Love” (Music Video)

It’s been almost an entire year since we first talked about Florence + The Machine and the ethereal pop sensibilities powerfully showcased in “Cosmic Love”, that possibly rival Bat For Lashes. Since then, Florence Welsh wowed us with her beautiful debut Lungs. And so, it gives me great satisfaction that Florence decided to go back to the song that first captured me, “Cosmic Love,” after all of her success. (Read More to WATCH)
