Music!  Enjoy.

:Tame Impala – Eventually:  Tame Impala seem to be rolling like Modest Mouse recently did and just continuously leaking songs from their new album.  I dig it.  This fourth “single” may be my favorite yet.  Currents is due out July 17.  See the band at ACL in October.

:Eternal Summers – Come Alive:  Here’s a new bit of well crafted pop from Eternal Summers.  I just know their upcoming LP is going to be great, so you should really make sure to scribble down a note to seek it out.  Gold And Stone is due out June 2 via Kanine Records.

:M.I.A. – Platforms:  Over the weekend M.I.A. let this demo out of her grasp.  It’s a fairly reserved effort sound-wise, but she makes the song shine with some solid songwriting.  I assume a new album will be announced at some point this year.

:Part Time – Pussy Of My Dreams:  First of all, it’s fine if you spend a few minutes giggling at the fact that this song is called Pussy Of My Dreams.  I certainly did.  Secondly, Part Time sound more playful than ever here, and I like it.  Virgo’s Maze is due out June 16 via Burger Records.

:Sharon Van Etten -  Just Like Blood:  Just in case you need a shot of sophistication today, here’s a beautiful new song from the one and only Sharon Van Etten.  She makes me want to be a better adult.  The I Don’t Want To Let You Down EP is due out June 9 via Jagjaguwar.

Music!  Enjoy.

:Bop English – Struck Matches:  Of the three singles that have been released off of the debut LP from Bop English (James Petralli of White Denim), this one is my favorite.  I love the way it moves.  Constant Bop is due out April 21 via Downtown Records.

:Tame Impala – ‘Cause I’m A Man:  Over the weekend Tame Impala officially announced a new album and released this “official” single.  It’s a psychedelic slow burner that’s worth all your attention.  Currents will be out later this year via Interscope.

:Annabel – Everything:  Overall, the return of emo continues to somewhat baffle me, but I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t like some of what’s come out of the genre’s comeback.  For instance, this Annabel track, which feels super genuine and is just about perfect.  Having It All is expected to be released in May via Tiny Engines.

:Speedy Ortiz – Puffer:  If you’ve been wanting to hear something different from Speedy Ortiz, then you should give this song a listen.  It’s less of an off-kilter anthem and more of an alt-rock crawler.  Foil Deer will be released on April 21 via Carpark.

:Part Time – Fallin’ 4 U:  This lo-fi pop tune from Part Time is so great.  For whatever reason I find it to be rather whimsical, and then there’s the way that I have yet to be able to get it out of my head.  Virgo’s Maze is due out May 19 via Burger Records.
