  • Grizzly Bear will be releasing their new album Painted Ruins next month. Last night, they shared their fourth single, "Neighbors," and soon after a video for the single was launched. "Neighbors" follows "Three Rings," "Mourning Sound," and "Four Cypresses." The strange video features two people who disguise themselves in various forms of camouflage, eventually becoming a unique sort of family. Painted Ruins will be released August 18 and Grizzly Bear will be in Seattle on Friday, December 8 at the Moore Theatre. [ Under the Radar ]
  • DJ Shadow released his latest EP, The Mountain Has Fallen, earlier this month. The EP featured Danny Brown, Nas, and film composer Steven Price. Today, his track with Price, "Corridors," has received a video. Directed by Dan Emmerson the video features lasers, remote-controlled toy cars, and a turntable suspended in ice. So basically it's everything a 12-year-old boy would find really really cool. The EP follows his 2016 full-length The Mountain Will Fall. [ Pitchfork ]
  • Last night Run the Jewels stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform a couple songs off RTJ3. They brought out Trina to help perform "Panther Like a Panther" and Joi for the song "Down." In between songs they announced that they dedicated the performance to Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, who passed away yesterday. Catch Run the Jewels tonight at the Main Stage of Capitol Hill Block Party, and LIVE on KEXP today at 4:00 PM PT. [ Consequence of Sound ]
  • Animal Collective's Avey Tare has had a unique promotional strategy for his new album Eucalyptus, which dropped today. It started with him sending jigsaw puzzles of the album art to fans before officially announcing the album and then he took an unconventional route by choosing to not share any advance singles off Eucalyptus. Now that it's out, he's turned his website into a living, breathing visual of the album. Hopefully, all this mystery pays off for him. [ Stereogum ]
