  • We've got new music to share from Seattle's own Car Seat Headrest (aka Will Toledo): check out the single "Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales" from their upcoming release Teens of Denial, out May 20th on Matador. It's the first CSH album recorded in a studio with a full-band, and Toledo lucked out to get local legend Steve Fisk behind the board. The album is apparently centered around Toledo's fictional alter ego "Joe," and has great song titles like "(Joe Gets Kicked Out of School for Using) Drugs With Friends (But Says This Isn’t aProblem)" and "Destroyed by Hippie Powers."

  • We're so excited to have Bob Mould performing at KEXP's New Home Grand Opening on Saturday, April 16th. Fingers crossed he'll be playing tracks from his upcoming 12th solo album Patch the Sky, out March 25th via Merge Records, which you can stream below. Bob's KEXP performance will be a solo thing, so don't miss his full rock experience with drummer Jon Wurster and bassist Jason Narducy on Tuesday, May 10th at The Showbox. [Consequence of Sound]

  • If you caught their KEXP in-studio session, then you've already had a taste of some of the tracks from the upcoming Parquet Courts full-length Human Performance, out April 8th on Rough Trade. (Watch that February session here.) Today, they share the album version of the single "Outside," which you can stream below. [Under the Radar]

  • Former Woods and Babies member Kevin Morby returns next month with his third solo album Singing Saw. Today, he shares a video for the single "Dorothy," which shows him sauntering casually down a country road, looking quite dapper. Watch below. Singing Saw hits stores on April 15th via Dead Oceans.
