This morning, public radio stations across the country are premiering genre-bending rock band TV On The Radio’s new single, Million Miles. It’s the group’s second single from a yet-to-be-titled fifth studio album, due for release sometime soon on producer Dave Sitek’s own record label, Federal Prism. It will be TV On The Radio’s first album since parting ways with Interscope Records, which released the group’s prior three albums.
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin has been pretty busy. In addition to working on a new album called Fly by Wire, which is out Sept. 17 on Polyvinyl, the band recently filmed a documentary about a trip to Russia that was organized by the US State Department and the Boris Yeltsin Foundation. Here’s a trailer for the film and the lead cut from the record, Nightwater Girlfriend.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Volcano Choir, Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon’s collaboration with fellow Wisconsinites Collections of Colonies of Bees. So it came as something of a surprise when a new Volcano Choir album was announced. It’s called Repave and will be out Sept. 3 on Jagjaguwar. Here is the first taste of it, Byegone.

The latest album from The Strokes, Comedown Machine, is out in just a few weeks. There have been differing reports about whether or not the band will tour in support of the release, but one thing is for certain: We can listen to the lead single, One Way Trigger, right this second.
