  • Norwegian music duo Royksopp have shared a new track from their final album, The Inevitable End (out November 11). They have described "Sordid Affair" as "a recollection and contemplation of the emotional aspects of the endeavours as described in the track title. The difficulties of letting go of emotional attachment." It's a dreamy, yet melancholy number. Listen, below. [Pitchfork]

  • Last night, Radiohead drummer Philip Selway made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his sophomore album Weatherhouse, which dropped earlier this week. He was joined by The Dap Kings (sans Sharon Jones) during his performance of "It Will End In Tears." [CoS]

  • Goat sure knows how to make the most of a quick, three-minute video. The visual for "Hide From the Sun" features creepy little creatures in masks chasing a woman through the forest. She ends up making the best of her situation and becomes their Queen. [Stereogum]

  • Tampa based band Merchandise recently released their album, After the End, and today they've shared the video for album track "Telephone." It's based on Scottish playwright John Bryne's (he even appears in the video) work Slab Boys Trilogy about life in 1950-70s Scotland. [CMJ]
