  • Swedish artist Lykke Li shares a video as dark and lonely as the track itself: watch the clip for "Never Gonna Love Again" below, from last year's I Never Learn. In an interview with Rolling Stone, she explains, "Loneliness and heartbreak follow you everywhere and they are loudest right after the lights go out and the crowds quiet. Here's an intimate glimpse of how it can be to live your dream whilst stuck in your dream. In the lonely wolf hour, the night becomes your stage, the stars your audience, the rain your memories." [Rolling Stone]

  • Aussie psych-project Tame Impala return with their third full-length album, Currents, out later this year via their new label Interscope. Get a sneak peek with the track "‘Cause I’m A Man" below, and get set to hear more new music when the band play the Sasquatch! Music Festival on Memorial Day weekend. [Under the Radar]

  • Check out a track from Superchunk frontman Mac McCaughan off his upcoming solo release, Non-Believers (declared "his first official solo album," but as a Portastatic fan, I guess you could say I'm a "non-believer" in that!). Stream the super-fun Farfisa-charged track "Box Batteries" below. Non-Believers is out May 5th via his very own label, Merge. “Box Batteries” b/w “Whatever Light” 7" single is out tomorrow.

  • Will he make it, or will he get sick again? Bets are on as Morrissey has announced a North American tour, including a Seattle stop on Tuesday, July 21st at Benaroya Hall. Today, he shares the video for the single "Kiss Me A Lot," which, surprisingly, features some scantily clad ladies (an homage to Roxy Music's Country Life, perhaps?). "Kiss Me A Lot" can be found on last year's release World Peace Is None of Your Business. [Spin]
