After giving us a track that included relatively sparse but still uncommon instrumentation (Sagres, which featured percussion and strings), The Tallest Man on Earth has released another song from the album Dark Bird Is Home that’s truer to form. The record’s title track is just Kristian Matsson and his guitar, the way we’ve come to know him.
My Morning Jacket just released another new track from their upcoming album, The Waterfall. In the sprawling musical missive Spring (Among the Living), Jim James sings about the season of transition, transformation and resurrection.
Courtney Barnett’s ambling lyricism and laid back delivery are applied to perfect effect on Depreston, a song about the slow realization that you might not be in the happiest of locales. Her new album, Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, is out March 24 via Mom + Pop Music.
If accomplished producer Emile Haynie’s latest single only featured a guest appearance from Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, that would be a big enough deal. If it only featured a guest appearance from Brian Wilson, that would be an even bigger deal. So the fact that both vocalists can be heard on Falling Apart is downright amazing.
4th and Roebling is the lead cut from The Districts debut full-lenght, A Flourish And A Spoil, which is out now on Fat Possum. Produced by John Congleton, it’s the follow-up to last year’s self-titled EP from the eastern Pennsylvania indie rockers.
