Memory Tapes - "Wait In The Dark"
"Wait in the Dark" is the first taste from Memory Tapes' post-Chillwave album Player Piano, out July 5 on Carpark, who also released Toro Y Moi's very decent Underneath The Pine LP earlier this year.
The War on Drugs - "Baby Missiles"
The War on Drugs are finally back on August 16 with Slave Ambient, the follow up to 2008's great Wagonwheel Blues. "Baby Missiles" is the first taster from the Philly quartet's upcoming album.

Beige - "Folds"
Brooklyn krautrockers Beige share a free MP3, "Folds". More from this band soon.
Mutual Benefit - "No Names" / Holy Spirits - "To The Shore"
Brooklyn's Holy Spirits have been making some good vibes lately, hooking up with an equally impressive young band Mutual Benefit and releasing a split LP together, aptly titled Mutual Spirits. Here are two wonderfully breezy and charming freebies. You can stream the entire thing at SoundCloud. Mutual Spirits is out May 24 on Father/Daughter Records.
