  • UK label Transgressive Records celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, and all month long, they'll be sharing free downloads spanning their decade of musical awesomeness. Today, they share the Record Store Day track "Jupiter" by The Antlers, which was originally recorded for the compilation The Space Project. Listen below, and see if you can hear the electromagnetic fluctuations in the magnetosphere woven into the track: [Under the Radar]

  • Influential NW trio Sleater-Kinney have announced, they'll be reissuing their entire discography on vinyl in the seven-LP box set, Start Together, out October 21st via Sub Pop Records. Not only will each album be remastered and pressed on color vinyl, but the set also includes a 44-page hardcover book of rare photos and an exclusive art print. And they mean it when they say "limited edition": only 3,000 copies are being pressed. (Sub Pop plans to release the remastered albums individually, but only on plain black vinyl.) [Consequence of Sound]

  • Anticipation is high for the latest from Foxygen — their 24-song, double LP ...And Star Power comes out October 14th on Jagjaguwar — and today, we've got another new track to share, "Cosmic Vibrations," a song that certainly lives up to its title with its languid, spacey groove. You can hear live versions of some of their new songs in this KEXP in-studio session here. [Pitchfork]

  • TV on the Radio return this fall with their fifth full-length, Seeds, out November 18th on Harvest Records. It'll be their first album since the passing of bandmate Gerard Smith, who passed in 2011 from lung cancer. Check out the single "Happy Idiot" (produced by guitarist Dave Sitek, of course) below: [Under the Radar]
