Sounds: A-Trak – “Land Line”

Another A-Trak banger.

Sounds: Psychic Ills – “Might Take A While”

New album on the way from Psychic Ills, due out in February. Sounding less nebulous, more like songs.

Video: Eternal Summers – “Good As You”

Eternal Summers have a new video for a pretty, soft, mournful song off the band’s debut album. Pretty water images and strait jackets abound.

Sounds: Girls Names – “Hypnotic Regression”

Girls Names, Belfast indie-pop, new album out this February on Slumberland.

Sounds: The Weathermen – “The Only Weathermen Song”

Some early 2000s hip-hop from The Weathermen? Yes, please. Produced by El-P, featuring Jakki da Mota Mouth, Tage Future, Yak Ballz, Copywrite, Vast Aire, and Cage.

Sounds: Telephoned – Singles

Telephoned’s electro-r’n’b take on some ’90s classics. Gimmicky, but good.

Sounds: DJ Muggs feat. Chuck D and Jared from HED PE – “Wikid”

What is Muggs up to? Well, this…

Sounds: Golden Grrls – “We’ve Got…”

Seduced by the band name, stuck around for the music.

Video: The Cult – “Elemental Light” (Salem Remix)

An odd pairing, but good results.

Video: Jonny Pierce – “I Didn’t Realise”

The Drums frontman Jonny Pierce has a solo album due out early next year – check out a song below. It’s full of squiggly electronics and rather good, but really with the British spelling? This is becoming more than affectation.

Video: R.A. The Rugged Man & Mac Lethal – “Crustified Christmas”

Christmas-themed novelty songs suck, but this shit is funny. Go Jesus, it’s your birthday.

Video: Unicorn Kid – “Feel So Real”

Makes me wanna go out and hit the town – but, oh yeah, I’m homey and old.

Video: Sleepin’ Giants – “Mucky”

I love British hip-hop and zombies.

Mixtape: WU-Block – Dj Deadeye Presents WU-Block “The Mixtape”

Prolly wanna check this one out. Download here.

Sounds: Parquet Courts – “Borrowed Time”

Parquet Courts are gonna be this year’s kinder, gentler Iceage – and with pretty good reason (snappy, stripped-down, straight-forward post-punk that brings to mind Wire and Television). What’s Your Rupture? will re-release the band’s album, Light Up Gold, on 1/15. Listen to “Borrowed Time” here.
