Manchester Orchestra are back with an upcoming record, Cope. Frontman Andy Hull says it's going to be a quick, straightforward rock album, as opposed to the glorious, passionate and sprawling mosaic that was 2011's Simple Math.
Here's the first single from the new record. This is Top Notch.
Broken Bells is the side project of Danger Mouse and the Shins' James Mercer. I liked their first album but admit that it wasn't a favorite or anything. But it made enough of a splash that they can get Anton Yelchin and Kate Mara to show up in the video for the first single from their new record.This song has a really nice late-70s soft rock vibe to it, with just enough electro-funk to keep things interesting. Here's Holding on for Life.
