In the newest video from The Knife's extremely anticipated new album Shaking the Habitual , directors Roxy Farhat and Kakan Harmansson look for the uncommon in role reversal. A group of men is led in charge by a young woman, who guides them through vulnerable and largely uncomfortable maneuvers. In sense, per the explanation Farhat gave, it allowed them to grace their weaknesses when they least expected it. Shaking The Habitual is slated for release April 8 and 9. Pre-order (you must) the album here, and watch the video/stream "A [...]

Nailing down where alternative music's waves are flowing towards is really a matter of two directions, more often than not. Sure there are sub-genres going through strings of mutant mitosis every week, creating splendid off-breeds of the sounds we all know and love. But to put it simply, there are two primary directions: revivalism and new. Django Django are unflinchingly new. The London band's post new-wave is branded with neo-futurism to a degree that makes MGMT look like its falling behind. Sprinting through the band's 13-track self-titled debut from last year and its [...]
"Digital Lion" was actually the second of two James Blake tracks released today. The first, "Voyeur," was unfortunately taken down, but the former will suffice for the time being. The new track has a modestly increased pace from anything we heard from the 24-year-old's self-titled release two years ago. That may have to do with the inclusion of none other than Brian Eno , who lends his help on the production. Check it out below courtesy of Blake's 1-800-Dinosaur (not sure what that means either) Soundcloud, and pre-order Overgrown here [...]

Following a fairly offensive summer, it would have made complete sense if Surfer Blood were lost in shamed obscurity. Despite the overwhelmingly negative press, the band is back and seems to finding its form again. Earlier today, Surfer Blood debuted its newest single "Demon Dance" over at NPR , and its an undeniable smash. Checkered history aside, the band continues to shill out catchy, captivating garage pop. Check the track out below and catch the band on its super length tour this summer with special dates alongside Foals (dates [...]

Although the compilation is current available in the U.S. (for whatever reason), J. Period's brand new G.O.O.D. Music: Remixed & Unreleased features this Kanye West and Consequence cut, "Hold On." It's a short track, so there's nothing extraordinarily huge here, but it's Kanye and good production so you should be on board.

Combining two unhinged forces - Los Angeles chaos-rap outfit Clipping and the drum apocalypse that is Foot Village - and we have a more blistering version of "This Song Is A Drug Deal." The pace is pushed to absolute extremes, which fits the Clipping angle fairly well.
