    7 Albums to Stream: Jenny Lewis, Shabazz Palaces, Tom Petty, and More

    Savor this latest summer Friday by streaming new albums by Jenny Lewis, Shabazz Palaces, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and more. Find details and links below.1) Jenny Lewis, The Voyager. "Like Lewis' great 2006 album with the Watson Twins, Rabbit Fur Coat, The Voyager plays the way a short-story collection reads, its disparate narratives united by musical and lyrical undertones. This time, Lewis goes not for country-music references, but for a wider palette that pays tribute to the history of studio rock." (via NPR)2) Shabazz Palaces, Lese Majesty. "As melodic as much of Lese Majesty is, the words might be the album's most important element. Close listeners will find brilliant inventions ('plushtrous,' 'unstill') and plenty of quotable passages." (via NPR)3) Hooray For Earth, Racy. "Racy is very much a rock album.

    Hear Daryl Palumbo's Blockbuster Remix of Papertwin's 'Alkaline'

    Last month, Brooklyn trio Papertwin released their debut studio effort, the Vox Humana EP, a six-track set featuring the hypnotic "Alkaline." Now we have a slight remix courtesy of Daryl Palumbo, frontman of Glass Jaw, Head Automatica, and Color Film. The adjustments in this new version are subtle but captivating: whereas the original is more mellow, Palumbo's reworking features a quicker pulse with extra-enhanced synths that galvanize producer Abe Seiferth's (Yeasayer, Bear in Heaven) dreamy concept. Embrace the atmospheric track below.

    Stream Teleseen's Shapeshifting Afro-House EP, 'Anamorph'

    Rio de Janeiro-based producer Gabriel Cyr will release his latest effort as Teleseen on July 22. The EP, dubbed Anamorph, fuses together diverse musical elements from ethiopian jazz, Afro-house, samba, and dub techno to assemble a shapeshifting mosaic of sound. Deep electronic keys and a fluid synth create a fluttering pulse that mingles with unintelligible, auto-tuned vocal clips, amounting to a listen that is at once frenetic and pleasingly serene. Stream the entire Anamorph EP — which is out on July 22 via Feel Up Records, the label run by Major Lazer's Jillionaire — below, and check out the title track's video on Death and Taxes.  And for good measure, here's an endorsement direct from Jillionaire himself: "Teleseen is truly one of my favorite producers... I fell in love with his work the first time I heard it.

  • Morrissey

    7 Albums to Stream: Morrissey, Young Thug, Landlady, and More

    As the week comes to a close we've rounded up the best albums streaming this past week. Follow the links below to stream new music from Morrissey, Melted Toys, Anand Wilder & Maxwell Kardon, Slow Club, and more.1. Morrissey, World Peace Is None Of Your Business."This 12-track effort largely seems to follow in the tradition of the singles that have surfaced thus far, but Morrissey is incorporating a fair amount of weirdness (see the tortured outro of 'Neal Cassady Drops Dead') into his swooning indie pop structures this time around." –SPIN (via NPR)2. Young Thug, 1017 Thug 2. "Thug doesn't actually seem to be participating in the release of his new tape. Instead, it appears to be a collection of vault music that he left with his old label, 1017 Brick Squad.

    Hear Spazzkid Bask in Summertime Sadness on 'Goodbye'

    Based in Los Angeles under the moniker Spazzkid, Mark Redito introduced his eccentric take on electronic music through a string of demos that first surfaced on Bandcamp back in 2004. The producer/songwriter's proper debut album, Desire, eventually arrived in 2013 and on July 8, Redito will drop a new EP dubbed Promise. Set for release through Magical Properties, the upcoming collection features "Goodbye," a tropical-flavored track featuring steel drum samples, a fluctuating synth pulse, and soft, euphoric vocals. Dive in below.

  • baked, debt, don't trip

    Hear Baked's Slow-Burnout Epic 'Don't Trip'

    Just as their name suggests, Baked specializes in hazy, lackadaisical yarns, several of which will appear on the Brooklynites' upcoming debut album, Debt. The five-piece — which features R.J. Gordon (vocals/guitar), Davey Jones (guitar), Jeremy Aquilino (bass/vocals), Yoni David (drums), and Isabella Mingione (keys/vocals) — shared one cut from the nine-song LP a few weeks back (that would be the not-quite-tropical "Mick Jagger"), and now they've served up the collection's official lead single, "Don't Trip." Though it ambles at a slow pace — all lazy rhythm and detached vocals — the new track gradually progresses into a lumbering crescendo before fading out into white noise. Ease into "Don't Trip" below and pre-order Debt through Bandcamp.

    Hear Beach Day's Carefree 'Don't Call Me on the Phone'

    Florida's Beach Day combined surf-punk grit and vintage pop hooks to great effect on their 2013 debut album, Trip Trap Attack. On August 19, the summer-worshipping outfit — made up of core members Kimmy Drake (vocals, guitar) and Skyler Black (drums) — will release their follow-up effort, Native Echoes, through Kanine Records. The upcoming, 10-track LP includes "Don't Call Me on the Phone," a woozy swooner that embodies the project's breezy romanticism. Dial into "Don't Call Me on the Phone" above, and pre-order Native Echoes through Kanine Records.

    10 Albums to Stream: The Antlers, White Lung, Sam Smith, and More

    Once again, we've collected the finest album streams available online. Scroll down to find the latest releases from the Antlers, Sam Smith, ex-Walkman Peter Matthew Bauer, White Lung, Cerebral Ballzy, and more.1) The Antlers, Familiars. "Burst Apart, from 2011, did its job surprisingly effectively, maintaining the swelling melancholy while letting its subject matter sprawl out beyond grief. Familiars is even better: Each of its deliberately paced songs sprawls to between five and eight minutes, and each takes a thoughtful journey in the process. Ever more sure-handed and ambitious in its arrangements, the band crafts gorgeous backdrops for [frontman Peter] Silberman, whose soaring falsetto periodically brings to mind Jeff Buckley." (via NPR)2) Peter Matthew Bauer, Liberation!.
