  • Our thoughts go out to members of the band and crew of Twin Shadow, who were injured this morning as their tour bus was part of a multi-vehicle crash in Aurora, Colorado, with heavy fog to blame. Rescuers have brought a dozen individuals to a local hospital to treat minor to severe injuries. [The Denver Post].
  • Wild Beasts debuted a previously unreleased track called "Woebegone Wanderers II" on Jon Hopkins' BBC Radio 1 program yesterday. As the title suggests, this seems to be a follow up to 2008's "Woebegone Wanderers." The sequel offers an ethereal and transcendent experience. Listen below. [CoS]

  • Giorgio Moroder will drop his latest studio album, Déjà Vu, his first in nearly 30 years, on June 12. The Italian music legend collaborated with Sia for the album's title track. Her unique vocals are the perfect match for his classic disco beats. It's only a matter of time before this song takes over the dance floor. [Stereogum]

  • Jenny Lewis was joined by HAIM during her Coachella set last weekend. Together they delivered a lively performance of a new song called "Girl on Girl." Thanks to fan footage you can enjoy the show without having to bake in the hot California sun. [Pitchfork]

  • Justin Vernon shared a bare-bones cover of Spoon's They Want My Soul track "Inside Out". Vernon performs the song on a mysteriously dark stage and proves that a piano is all he needs to make some magic. [Pitchfork]
