The Strokes are apparently getting ready to release a new album and to show it they have put out a new single called “One Way Trigger”. the song sounds more like Julian Casablanca’s solo album stuff than it does like some of the older Strokes material.

It’s been a while since the release of The National’s last album High Violet but recently they’ve decided to surprise us by playing 5 new songs and possibly hinting at the release of a new album some time soon. On the Toronto show Q live the band performed the songs “Rylan” and “i need my girl”. You can listen to them here. In England the band performed 3 new songs including “Lola”, “Sullivan”, and “Prime” you can watch the footage below.

So the band Bad Books, a collaboration between Manchester Orchestra and Kevin Devine have released their second album simply titled II. The band released the album back in October and if you haven’t had a chance to check it out you definitely should. Most collaborations tend to fall flat but these guys are able to come together almost like a sense of brotherhood in order to put the album together. Check it out here.

Local Natives have played a new song live on the BBC this week. The song is called “Heavy Feet” and they play it along with “Breakers” on the live session. Both tracks will appear on their upcoming album Hummingbird. The song sounds great and makes me look forward even more to the album coming out. You can check out the song here around the 2:42 mark of the whole show.

Benjamin Gibbard has released another song from his new solo album Former Lives out October 16th. The song is called “Bigger Than Love” and it also features singer Aimee Mann. The song is another diary entry from the lyricists who can mix emotions and narratives so well. check out the song on NPR and see what you think.

So the album doesn’t officially drop until September 18th but the band has made their full album Mirage Rock available to stream on SoundCloud today. You can hear all 11 tracks right now for free. Not much more to add to that so let me know what you think of their effort.
