The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are about to come out with there next album and they have made it available to listen to the whole way through on YouTube. They also conduct an interview and explain the recording process and what the songs mean to them right before each song. Check it out below and get excited!

You can get an early listen to the full Strokes album here from our friends at pitchfork and see what you think of the new album. It definitely sounds more like Julian Casablanca’s solo album than it does older strokes stuff but there are some good tracks on here as well. Let me know what you think of the new album.

Finally we get two new official recordings of songs from Vampire Weekend off of their upcoming album Modern vampires of the City. The two songs are called “Step” and “Diane Young”. Just like the best Vampire Weekend Songs “step” has all of the clever word play that you could ever want. But the song still retains its emotional core and poignant observations. “Diane Young’ is just a fun time all around that everyone should enjoy hearing. Check out both songs below.

She and Him have released the first single for their new album Volume 3 and the song is called “Never wanted Your Love”. Don’t let the title fool you, the song is no somber piece. It is full of just as much sun and pep as you would expect form the duo. Check the song out below and see what you think.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have released anew song from their new album Mosquito out April 16th. The song is called “Sacrilege” and it takes you right back to what everyone loves about the Yeahs in the first place. as an added bonus there is a full gospel choir that kicks in near the end of the song that is just killer. Based on this track alone I already have high hopes for this album. So glad these guys are back!

So She and Him, The Strokes, and Vampire Weekend all have new albums coming out in the next few months. Rejoice! She and Him’s new album is called Volume 3 which is in keeping with their past volume themed albums. The Strokes come back with Comedown Machine and we’ll see if it results in as much debate as their last album did. Finally, Vampire Weekend is back with their third album called Modern Vampires of the City. If their last two albums are any indication the only way this would not be good is if they decided to go the heavy metal route.

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 will be interesting to see if this will be the whole style of the entire new album or not. Check out the song below and see what you think.

So Jimmy Kimmel has been taping his show in Brooklyn all week and Vampire Weekend decided to stop by on Halloween and play a new song. The song is called “Unbelievers”  and while the song is pretty catchy the scary Halloween makeup the band is wearing kind of throws things off. Here’s hoping the band decides to play the song in some more traditional getup in the future.

We finally have an expected release date for Band of Horses anticipated 4th studio album. The album Mirage Rock is expected to be released September 18th and from the track listing the song “Long Vows” which they debuted earlier in concert has made the album. Also, the band has released a new song called “Knock Knock”which shows off the lighter side of the band. Lets face it, no matter how many times this band changes members can they really do any wrong?
