Each week I try to rotate new songs into my playlists from recently released or soon to be released albums. Now Iâ€™m giving it to you, too! I never find giant lists of new music to be helpful, because I usually only listen to a few songs at a time anyway, so here are five, carefully picked songs you should be listening to.
Fleet Foxes: "Helplessness Blues"
Album: Helplessness Blues out May 3
Robin Pecknold is making love to my ears right now. Don't disturb me, that's awkward.
Album: Blood Pressures
Don't do it. Don't compare Allison Mosshart to Karen O. Karen O rolls around on stage and screams, Mossheart SINGS.
Cold Cave: "The Great Pan is Dead"
Album: Cherish the Light Years
SYNTH STORM RAGE!
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart: "Heart In Your Heartbreak"
This song has been on rotation for me despite the Bring It On-esque chorus/title.
LCD Soundsystem: "I Can Change"
Album: This is Happening
If you missed me Saturday brushing tears from my eyes while dancing at Barbarella for the LCD Soundsystem appreciation, you can have your own memorial.
