, Papercuts - Still Knocking At The Door 0 plays

Papercuts has been making beautiful, heart-breaking pop songs for a while, but in the last few years he has truly found his voice as a songwriter. In his new single “Still Knocking at the Door”, he’s managed to craft another fantastic tune but one that doesn’t make you want to curl up in a ball and sob! Psyched to hear more from his upcoming album Life Among the Savages, out this May. 

Jagwar Ma's beautiful new video for “Uncertainty” finds the band dancing in a dark desert under a starlight sky. 

Previous link is down, so here it is again, Beck’s new song “Blue Moon” off his upcoming album Morning Phase, Beck’s first studio album since 2008. The LP will apparently be a continuation of Sea Change, which is the best news ever.

Washed Out performed “All I Know” off of 2013’s excellent Paracosm on Letterman last night.

When cult-rockers WU LYF split up, lots of little sub-bands were formed including Los Porcos and FAMY. While Los Porcos has focused on insanely catchy dance-pop, FAMY has kept a more folky feel as evidenced by their new single “a Ho a Hand”. Looking forward to hearing more from these boys in 2014.
