  • West coast faves Silversun Pickups kick off their three-month-long North American tour with a video for the track "Circadian Rhythm." The clip spotlights bassist Nikki Monninger (with a cute doggie co-star) in a dreamy, sparkly scene. Watch below, and then watch the band's KEXP New Home benefit performance from Sun Liquor last year. "Circadian Rhythm" can be found on their most recent release, Better Nature, out now on their own New Machine Recordings. [Stereogum]

  • Northwest sludgelords Melvins are having a very active 2016, so far. On April 1st, they'll finally release Three Men and a Baby, a long-awaited collaborative album recorded back in 1999 with Mike Kunka of Godheadsilo. And today, they've announced yet another album, Basses Loaded, featuring six different bassists: Krist Novoselic, J.D. Pinkus of Butthole Surfers, Steve McDonald of Redd Kross, Jared Warren of Big Business, and Trevor Dunn of Mr. Bungle/Fantomas. The sixth bassist is Melvins' own Dale Crover, who will abandon his drum kit for a bass guitar on four of the album's tracks. Stream the single "Hideous Woman" (featuring McDonald) below, and track down the full-length on June 3rd when it's released through Ipecac Recordings. [Consequence of Sound]

  • Just in time for this Thursday's (now sold out!) KEXP New Home Benefit, Bob Dylan has announced his 37th full-length album, Fallen Angels. No release date nor track list shared yet, but he did share a North American tour schedule, including a Saturday, June 4th stop at the Chateau Ste Michelle Winery in Woodinville with Mavis Staples. [Under the Radar]

  • The Internet (aka Syd the Kyd and Matt Martians of Odd Future) share a slow-motion clip combining the tracks "Special Affair" and "Palace/Curse," off their Grammy-nominated release Ego Death. The video even features a guest appearance from fellow Odd Future-member Tyler, The Creator. Watch: [Spin]
