posted April 12, 2011

  • Zombi has premiered another new track, "Slow Oscillations." off their forthcoming album "Escape Velocity" now via PopMatters.com. "Escape Velocity" is set for a May 10th North American release date and will be available on CD, LP, and digitally (iTunes pre-order). The band has previously posted "Escape Velocity" track "Shrunken Heads" at Stereogum.com.
  • London-based garage-pop band Mazes have released the hilariously whacked out animated video for their current single, "Most Days." The video, featuring a motley crew of bizarre creatures, including a Triceratops, a paper-bag man, a man-dog and something that looks like a Pac-Man ghost, was created by the UK illustration team of brothers Paul and Matt Layzell who were inspired by the "old home-made skate movies [him and his brother] used to make as kids."
  • The Antlers have premiered the track "Parentheses" from their highly anticipated forthcoming album "Burst Apart," out May 10 on Frenchkiss Records.
  • Herman Dune, Chase & Status, Astrud & Col.lectiu Brossa, Amable, Ainara LeGardon, Aldo Linares, Nadadora and The Paris Riots are the new additions to the FIB 2011's line-up.
  • Check out Brooklyn's Forgetters on Dirty Laundry.
