    LISTEN: Psychedelic Rockers Dead Meadow

    What pops out when Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd shack up and have a hippie love-child? Washington, DC, trio Dead Meadow. And after 12 years and five albums, the band is preparing to release their most ambitious album yet. This March, the psych-rock band will drop Three Kings, a full-length concert movie and accompanying soundtrack. Below, listen to an exclusive stream of album cut "To the One." The new song layers airy, echoing vocals over a loose bass groove and singer/guitarist Jason Simon's distorted axe riffs and wah-wah pedal effects, which ooze early '70s psych-rock power and experimentalism -- spacey atmospherics included! So, SPIN readers, what do you think of the new track? Tell us what you think in the comment section below. LISTEN: Dead Meadow, "To the One"

    Fanfarlo may be the most unique band coming out of the U.K. right now. The indie-pop sextet's melancholy, hyper-literate sound (they're even named after a Baudelaire novella) earned them a spot as a Hot New Band in SPIN's November '09 issue, and their tune "Ghosts" was featured on an episode of Grey's Anatomy. Taking time off from their latest U.S.
