Justin Timberlake – “Mirrors”
The newest single from Justin Timberlake’s upcoming album The 20/20 Experience. An eight-minute epic of classic Justin Timberlake.
Kurt Vile – “Wakin’ On A Pretty Day”
The first single and opening track from Kurt Vile’s album Walkin On A Pretty Daze, which is scheduled to be released sometime this spring. “Wakin’ On A Pretty Day” is nine and a half minutes of laid-back guitar strumming and singing.
James Blake – “Retrograde”
“Retrograde” is the lead single from James Blake’s upcoming album Overgrown, due out April 8th. “Retrograde” surfaced as a BBC Radio 1 rip last week, and Blake released a video for it earlier this week.
Talking Heads – “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)”
“This Must Be The Place” is one of my favorite songs off of Talking Heads’ 1983 album Speaking in Tongues. It’s a much more laidback, groovier song after an album full of Talking Heads’ jagged post-punk / New Wave.
HAIM – “Falling”
“Falling” is the title track from HAIM’s upcoming EP. HAIM is a trio of sisters from California who make light, bouncy pop music and “Falling” is a good sign for what’s to come.
