  • Dan Deacon and Death Cab for Cutie — they're like pineapple and bacon on pizza. You wouldn't think their opposite tastes work, but then you hear Deacon's remix of the single "Black Sun," and you want another slice. Check it out below. The original version of the track can be found on Death Cab's seventh and latest album Kintsugi. [Stereogum]

  • Vancouver-based singer/songwriter Dan Bejar has announced the return of his project Destroyer. This August, he'll release the album Poison Season, their first full-length since 2011's excellent Kaputt. Check out the first single, the sax-y "Dream Lover," below. Poison Season hits the streets on August 28th via Merge/Dead Oceans. Bejar plays this weekend at the Sasquatch Music Festival with his other band, The New Pornographers, and Destroyer plays Friday, October 16th at The Neptune. [Spin]

  • Last night, The Tallest TV Show Host on Earth hosted a session from The Tallest Man on Earth.
