BBC radio’s Zane Lowe has recently undertaken the lofty task of giving an alternate take to the impeccable Drive Soundtrack called Radio One Rescores: Drive – Curated By Zane Lowe. While we in no way believe that the original is in need of being redone, it does bring the opportunity to hear new stuff from the likes of Foals, SBTRKT, BANKS, Jon Hopkins, among others, and this song from CHVRCHES titled “Get Away”. While it doesn’t have some of the soaring moments of some of the songs on their debut, it still is always nice to have a new tune from the Glasgow trio. Stream below.

Song : Ariel Pink : “Black Ballerina”

Ariel Pink follows up “Put Your Number In My Phone” with this fantastic new cut “Black Ballerina”. It holds that quintessential Ariel Pink quirkiness. While it just dropped, we know this one is going to stick in the rotation for a while. It might be our favorite from him since “Round and Round”. The song will appear on his upcoming new double-LP, pom pom, out on November 18th via 4AD. Listen below.

Song : Suixx : “Hi”

Suixx is the moniker taken by Sydney’s Sarah Jullienne. Her latest song, titled “Hi”, is what we imagine it would sound like if Tame Impala and Beach House hooked up and mixed their sonic aesthetics. The song is just another example on how Australia has been killing it lately with its musical exports. Expect it to appear on her forthcoming debut EP slated sometime in the very near future, possibly before the end of the year. Stream below.

FKA Twigs is an artist in the truest since, not only in music, but also using visuals and dancing as an outlet. Today, she revealed a new concept film titled #throughglass that sees her drawing inspiration from choreography inspirations she’s searched for using Google Glass, also using the device in filming. It is soundtracked using reworked versions of her songs “Video Girl” and “Glass & Patron”. Calling it captivating would be an understatement. Watch below.

Director, editor and visual effects artist Brett Novak creates some of the most mesmerizing and breathtaking videos around meshing together skateboarding and music. We could spend hours watching his Youtube channel sifting through his catalog and recommend that you do. His latest visual features Mentality pro Joe Moore and the mouthful of a song “You Cannot Cast Out the Demons (You Might As Well Dance)” from Berlin’s Get Well Soon. Watch below.

Having released their debut EP earlier this year, Toronto’s Weaves have a new song “Shithole” out next week via Buzz Records. It is catchy as hell slacker rock indebted to the ’90s full of angst and disenchantment. Something we would have listened to back in the day when we were up to no good. Stream below.

Song : Angelo De Augustine : “Old Hope”

Next week, it will be 11 years since the passing of icon Elliott Smith, but his spirit continues on in new song “Old Hope” from 22-year-old LA singer-songwriter Angelo De Augustine. You might recall we posted about him and his great previous song “How Past Begins” earlier this month. While the Eliott Smith touchstones were evident on that track, this one is dead on from the guitar work all the way down to the slight strain in the vocals. It is absolutely fantastic and we couldn’t imagine a more perfect time than autumn for a song like this. His debut LP, Spirals of Silence, is out on November 18th. Stream it below.
