Katie Crutchfield aka Waxahatchee looks to continue her notable rise after an awesome 2012 with her lo-fi acoustic heartbreaker American Weekend . News broke today that Waxahatchee's new album Cerulean Salt will be out 3/5 and we've got a new song to boot. Looks like she's traded in her lo-fi tape recording aesthetic in favor of some slow blooming balladry which is just as affecting. Tracklist: 01 “Hollow Bedroom” 02 “Dixie Cups & Jars” [...]

RDGLDGRN are a three-piece hip-hop group fresh outta D.C. following the hip-hop/rock infused territory mapped out by former genre-benders Gym Class Heroes (think back to their earlier and more genuine work). They've got an EP comin out on 2/13 and a helluva single to hype it up. If your not sold yet, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl dug these guys so much that he played drums on their whole album. Check out "Million Fans" below

Bosnian Rainbows are the new outfit led by Mars Volta’s Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. Lopez teamed up with Teri Gender-Bender of Les Butcherettes to round out the new group's lineup who released their first single "Torn Maps" today via NME "Torn Maps" is an youthful toe tapping dance rock anthem reminiscent of Yeah Yeah Yeah's more recent commercial leanings. It's taken off of their new untitled full-length which should be out later this year.

They've released two tracks thus far, led by a positively explosive and unrestrained vocal lead from Accardi, showcased best in their newest song "Baby Shakes" . Their reception [...]

News broke last summer that The Strokes we're in studio working on LP5 and while the band initially denied that report , it appears that it may have been true after all. Seattle based radio station 107.7 The End recently confirmed that they've heard the band's new single "All The Time" which is apparently "packing a classic Strokes sound". They also say that we'll be hearing new material from the gods of rock sooner rather than later, with the new full-length out sometime this year. [...]

Foxing are another year end gem I fell in love with after stumbling onto their Old Songs EP a bit ago. It's just 3 songs long, but all the tracks exceed 5 minutes and do a good job of showcasing that midwest twinkly emo-revival that seems to be going crazy as of late. Check out my favorite cut from it below, or grab the whole thing over at Bandcamp Sunspotting by Foxing
