Chameleon Daniel Bejar has announced the next chapter in his career with details for 10th LP, Poison Season, under the Destroyer moniker scheduled to drop on August 28th via Merge/Dead Oceans. The first example from the release is the robust “Dream Lover” that has a distinct mid-’70s Springsteen or Bowie epicness about it with a splash of Lou Reed. Needless to say, it stands out from current trends musically. Listen below.

We are only a few short weeks from the release of Jamie xx’s In Colour, an album sure to be one of the albums of the summer and year for 2015. Until then, another new song has appeared from it featuring Young Thug and Popcaan. “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” is a vibrant, beach-friendly chill jam that just screams outdoor parties and sunshine. Stream it below and pre-order the album at Young Turks.

Premiere : Kaleidico : “Hands We’d Have to Shake”

One of the best albums this year might be one you have yet to hear from Louisville’s Kaleidico, but you won’t have to wait long. On May 26th, they will be releasing their sophomore LP, titled Zoetic, digitally. For those not familiar, the band started off as a bedroom project of Matt Moore, only to add Chris Johnson, Evan Grulke, Justin Chodniecki to allow the songs to be played live. Without sounding hyperbolic, the sound refrences the experimental percussion and electronic elements of later Radiohead done in a downtempo or ambient fashion and a side of folk. Vocally, Moore’s vocals carry across in a similar manner to Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear.

To introduce this next chapter of the project, we have the first song from the album for you to experience, “Hands We’d Have to Shake”. Moore says of the song, “I wrote “Hands We’d have to Shake” during a long stretch of unsuccessful job interviews. It deals with taking on the responsibilities that you know are expected of you, when all you want is to enjoy the isolation and comfort of home.” Stream and download it below.

Song : Class Actress : “More Than You”

Four years since her album Rapprocher, New York’s Elizabeth Harper, better known as Class Actress has returned with a new song. Titled “More Than You”, the song captures the same slowed-down synth-heavy production that could be interpreted as both seductive and menacing. She explained to Fader, the song is “about wanting to get close to someone but being afraid.” While there is no information on additional music, it is probably a safe assumption to expect more. Listen below.

A$AP Rocky Reveals Video For New Song “LSD”

A$AP Rocky has his new LP, At.Long.Last.A$AP, out in a couple of weeks on June 2nd. Tonight, Lil B premiered what is the best track released so far from the LP, “LSD”, along with a psychotropic visual. As the title might indicate, the track has a dreamlike, hallucinatory feel about it. While we believed A$AP’s new album would be great, this has us raising our expectations. Listen and watch below.

Video Session : Hamilton Leithauser @ LUNA Music

Solo albums can be a funny thing. Often times a lead singer who strikes out on his or her own can be desperate to fashion a new identity and reclaim their voice as an artist. This new identity can feel so far removed from their old band, maybe a hypothetical band that you loved dearly, that you question whether you can support this singer’s new quest for independence or whether you need to bury your head in a stack of old LPs and remember the good times. Hamilton Leithauser, the former frontman of a band that I happen to be enamored with, stands in direct opposition to this artistic pitfall: his new album doesn’t just showcase the raspy, smoke-filled croon I’ve come to love, it shows the development of an artist that I’ll happily continue to follow.

Leithauser stopped by LUNA music back in September during the Indianapolis leg of his tour with Spoon to perform some stripped down versions of songs from his new album, Black Hours, for our project. Jumping between the seam-bursting energy of “Alexandra” and the sweetly melancholy “11 O’clock Friday Night,” Leithauser played to a tightly packed, intimate group at the shop as if in front of an audience at a sold out club. After the final song the crowd pushed forward to talk with Leithauser, who graciously shook hands with each member of the crowd who waited for him. This kind of enthusiasm and kindness bodes well for the new identity Leithauser is forming, and the size of the crowd makes me think he’ll have quite a sizable following throughout this new stage in his career.

We recently had the pleasure of hanging out with cool kids of Sales a month back during a show here in Indianapolis. Not only were they great live, they couldn’t have been any nicer of people. They even filled us in that they were working on their debut LP that could possibly see the light of day this year, so be on the lookout for that.

In the meantime, they continue to tour relentlessly in support of their excellent self-titled EP (grab that here) from last year and have announced a ton of dates across Europe. With those dates, they have also shared a three-part live video series filmed in different locations around St. Petersburg, FL and our hometown, Orlando, FL and were directed by Josef Lorenzo. In it, they perform “Vow”, “Chinese New Year”, and hooky “Renee”. Watch all three below.
