High Five No. 3 Sampler From Polyvinyl Records


Polyvinyl Records is giving away five songs a week each Monday in July. Here’s the catch, though: The songs are only available for one week. So you have until Sunday at midnight to grab these five tracks.

Phoenix – Trying To Be Cool


Phoenix has just released a live performance clip of the latest single from Bankrupt!, Trying to Be Cool, in conjunction with the Creators Project. In addition to the video, they’re making the live version of the track available for free until this Thursday at 11 a.m. ET!

JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound – Rouse Yourself


JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound will be here in just a few weeks for the Independence Day Festival, so here is a track from the Howl LP to get you ready for the festivities. Like JC says in the song, rouse yourself baby!

Rogue Wave – College


Zach Schwartz is back with a new Rogue Wave album called Nightingale Floors, which is out June 4. It was inspired by the loss of Schwartz’s father, but Nightingale Floors isn’t an examination of grief. It’s a celebration of life. The lead track, College, is proof of that both musically and lyrically.

She & Him – Never Wanted Your Love


Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward have teamed up again for a third She & Him LP, aptly titled Volume 3. It’s out this week on Merge, and here is the lead single, Never Wanted Your Love. It’s pretty much what you would expect from the duo – and that’s a good thing. A very good thing.
