Another week, another half-surprise release. We didn’t have access to a single song off Fiona Apple’s stunning new record (her first in 8 years) and we missed how good it is to be able to be surprised in an age where we already listened to a third of a record by the time it’s out. Plus: almost two hours of brand new music by the Mountain Goats, Bright Eyes, Hamilton Leithauser, King Khan, Malena Zavala, Faye Webster, Lido Pimienta, Rina Sawayama, Bedouine, Sarah Siskind, Courtney Marie Andrews, Hazel English, Pacific Range, Fruit Bats, Trace Mountains, Nathan Kalish, Dougie Poole, Whiskey Wolves of the West, The Howling Hex, Flatworms, Car Seat Headrest, Stereoboy, Malojian, Sir Richard Bishop, and The Deep Dark Woods.
Dan Bejar enters the another decade with what is probably his most remarkable piece of work since Kaputt. We’ve been featuring Destroyer’s new singles for a while now; this week, it’s time to celebrate “Have We Met”’s release. Plus, we have new tracks from Youbet, Diet Cig, Frances Quinlan, Torres, Lala Lala, JFDR, Lowland Hum, James Elkington, Sir Richard Bishop, Clem Snide, Sam Doores, Tre Burt, Alex Rex, Futurebirds, Pokey LaFarge, The Sadies, Bohren & der Club of Gore, Brooch, Dan Deacon, Shopping, The Men, Hailu Mergia, and Chuck Prophet.
