  • Portland psychedelic rockers The Dandy Warhols have shared "You Are Killing Me," their latest music since their 2012 album, This Machine. This track is the band's first release since signing with their new label Dine Alone Records. "You Are Killing Me" is a catchy rock number with an old school sound. Here's hoping that they announce a new album soon. [Stereogum]
  • We hope you're enjoying Intergalactic Bowie Day on KEXP. As you probably know, it's not only David Bowie's birthday but also the release date of his highly anticipated album, ★ (Blackstar), which is available to stream today via Spotify. The 7-track album has garnered a ton of stellar reviews. Rolling Stone's David Fricke called it: "Bowie's best anti-pop masterpiece since the Seventies." Woah. [CoS]

  • On February 19, Animal Collective will drop their tenth studio album, Paint With. They've shared the video for the album's lead single "FloriData." The video follows two human shaped entities (anyone remember those silver liquid people from the Capri Sun commercials from the 90s?) as they fall in love. FYI, there's an epilepsy warning. [Pitchfork]

  • Chairlift's latest track "Crying in Public" has singer Caroline Polachek's voice do most of the heavy lifting, creating a song that's beautiful in its simplicity. Their album Moth will be released on January 22 via Columbia. [CoS]
