  • Ex-Red Red Meat frontman Tim Rutili's music project Califone have revealed a dazzling video for "Magdalene" from last year's Stitches album. The song itself is flawless and the amazing animation manages to elevate it further. Enjoy a stunning five-minute reprieve from reality, below. [Stereogum]

  • Merrill Garbus, better known as tUnE-yArDs, will drop her upcoming album Nikki Nack on May 6. Her new album single "Wait For a Minute" is as brilliantly weird as it is addicting. [Pitchfork]

  • British rockers Klaxon's will release their third album Frequency on June 9 and it's sure to be a doozy. The band has described it as a place where, "RnB production, prog and dance music sensibilities collide somewhere near the summit of Hit Parade."

  • Uncertainty Remixes, the obviously titled EP of Jagwar Ma's track "Uncertainty" is available now via Mom + Pop. Check out fellow Aussie Cut Copy's sprawling eight-minute interpretation of the song. [Stereogum]
