Grizzly Bear - Yet Again

The second single from Grizzly Bear's forthcoming fourth album, 'Shields'. Ed Droste croons his way through this smart, understated track.

Elliott Smith - Alameda (Alternate Version)

Smith's (above) former label Kill Rock Stars is releasing a selection of rare, unreleased tracks to mark what would have been his 43rd birthday. "Alameda", recorded during the 'Either/Or' sessions, is our first taste.

Wavves - Hippies Is Punks

Nathan Williams returns to snotty grunge punk for this 'Adult Swim Singles Series' track after dabbling with instrumental electronica on his Sweet Valley project.

Bob Mould -  The Descent

The former Husker Dü member continues to produce the kind of vivacious pop punk that Green Day built their career on.

My Morning Jacket - Outta My System (Washed Out Remix)

Washed Out add their blissful fuzz-pop to My Morning Jacket's forthcoming EP of friends' remixes of their single.

John Cale - I Wanna Talk 2 U

Kooky but surprisingly unabrasive indie pop from the former Velvet Underground cellist.

King Dude - Jesus in the Courtyard

Doom-laden country blues packed with disorientating guitar effects and foreboding vocals.
