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.
Lucius has been covering My Morning Jacket’s Wonderful during live sets for a while, and now we finally have the Brooklyn band’s version of the song on tape. It’s on the deluxe edition of Wildewoman, which is out digitally Oct. 4 and physically Nov. 25.
Actor Michael Cera just released a record. The archetypal Manic Pixie Dream Boy played bass for indie supergroup Mister Heavenly (with members of Islands and Man Man) in 2011, but that was the extent of his public involvement in making music until now. A few days ago, Cera posted a lo-fi folk album on Bandcamp titled Take That. You can stream the entire record below:
Louisville favorite Cabin has a new album called It Is What It Looks Like, and they’re taking a unique approach to its release. Every week, for the next six weeks, the band will make a song available for purchase through the Cabin website. Each week, you’ll be able to hear an exclusive preview of that track right here. They’ve given us the title track this, It Is What It Looks Like.
