The Barometer: Beach House; MellowHigh; Hot Chip; Titus Andronicus; Grandaddy; The Shins; Marina & the Diamonds; Four Tet; The Walkmen
What's hot on our playlist
Beach House - Lazuli
An expansive synth-led track that mixes gloomy melodies with bright instrumentation. A familiar sound, but one the duo has dominated since breakthrough 'Teen Dream'.
Mellowhigh - Timbs
Cinematic, string-laden hip-hop. Not to be confused with another Odd Future-affiliated pop-up group, MellowHype.
Hot Chip - Night & Day
A typically upbeat, ultra-catchy slice of electro-indie-funk from the London band.
Titus Andronicus- Oh Bondage! Up Yours!
Taken from a new X-Ray Spex tribute LP, this raw cover is sung by guitarist Amy Klein.

Grandaddy - The Crystal Lake
The underappreciated indie-rock outfit announced their reunion tour this week. This homesick single, released in May 2000, will surely be a highlight of the concerts.
The Shins - The Rifle's Spiral
An eerily animated 3D video was released for this track earlier in the week. The song itself is taken from the band's fourth album, 'Port of Morrow'.
Marina & the Diamonds - Primadonna (Evian Christ remix)
The enigmatic producer brings Marina's vocals to the fore by stripping the beat to a sparse, 808-influenced sound.
Four Tet - Conference of the Birds
A DJ mix full of the disjointed sounds and exotic beats we've come to expect.
The Walkmen - Heaven
A tight, Strokes-esque beat and bassline drives this new track from the oft-overlooked New Yorkers.
