  • Yesterday, Austra released a new EP, titled Habitat, on Domino Records, and today, you can stream the electropop goodness online. Frontwoman Katie Stelmanis explains, "'Habitat' is an old song that we’ve waited almost three years to release.

  • Arctic Monkeys have shared a new video today for the track "Snap Out Of It" off their most recent release, AM. Watch actress Stephanie Sigman watch the band in the recording studios below: [Under the Radar]
