  • Last week, we shared a new Destroyer track as a KEXP Song of the Day, and today we've got another song to share from his forthcoming full-length, Poison Season, out August 28th on Merge Records. Check out the "sax-y" single "Times Square" below. Not only will Destroyer play Friday, October 16th at the Neptune Theatre, but it's just been announced that Dan Bejar (aka Mr. Destroyer himself) will play this Saturday, August 15th at Hilliard's in Ballard.

  • What starts as a romantic romp, ends up in horror, before veering back towards fun -- The Drums share a delightful video for the track "There Is Nothing Left," a highlight from their most-recent release Encyclopedia. The clip was directed by David Gantz and Theo Cohn, and stars transgender model Hari Nef. In a statement, Nef says, "I had never envisioned myself as the ingenue of a romantic comedy – even a romantic comedy gone wrong. I related to the video’s notion of embodying cliches in order to break them. Filming was a treat!" [Under the Radar]

  • Electro-cuties Hot Chip also share a fun new video today for the track "Started Right," off their latest Why Make Sense?. The clip, directed by Rollo Jackson, features a karaoke evening gone weird. Watch below: [Consequence of Sound]
