NEW SONG: Spiritualized - "Always Forgetting With You (The Bridge Song)" (2014)

NEW SONG: SPIRITUALIZED - "Always Forgetting With You" (The Bridge Song).

 

From 1997’s “Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating in Space” to 2012’s “Hey Jane”, J. Spaceman has given us love song after dreamy, vaguely disillusioned love song. “Always Forgetting with You (The Bridge Song)” — off The Space Project, a Record Store Day exclusive also featuring new songs by Youth Lagoon, Beach House, and The Antlers – is the latest Spiritualized track to fit squarely in this lineage. Here, Spaceman wants to be all things — a radio, a rocket ship, a fellow lonely person — to the woman he’s serenading. The already expansive song roughly doubles in g-force in its last couple of minutes, when extra vocals and bigger drums invade. –Michael Madden

UNDER THE RADAR: TOGETHER PANGEA - "River"

UNDER THE RADAR: TOGETHER PANGEA - "River" | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

UNDER THE RADAR: TOGETHER PANGEA – “River”.

The best part of the infectious, sneering “River” is the rippling way that together PANGEA vocalist/guitarist William Keegan repeats the chorus “looking at the river cause the river can run.” No, wait, it’s the soaring group vocals and choppy guitar riff near the end. No, wait, it’s the way that they make the idea of “when it all dries up, you’re gonna feel the pain of excess, waste, and wanting” sound less than terrifying. Well, whatever. “River” doesn’t have time to sit around dithering in indecision. This is a serious shot in the arm, the perfect thing to keep you going even when the tank is low. This one comes from the L.A. trio’s recently released Badillac, and will surely fill the floor on their upcoming live dates. –Adam Kivel

DISCOVER: Lunatic Soul - "lunatic soul"

DISCOVER: LUNATIC SOUL - "Lunatic Soul".

 

Mariusz Duda, the mainman behind Polish prog. rockers Riverside, ventured out on a limb a few years back to return to basics. Containing no electric guitars whatsoever, Duda's output as Lunatic Soul (seemingly quite the misnomer) is refreshingly organic ambient rock. It bears similarites to Mogwai and Godspeed! You Black Emperor, with leviathan drum lunges and the chainsaw slog of pedalboard effects, but there's also a fey quality to be found. It's arguably post-rock, really, but what you can be sure of is a pastoral timbre intrinsically linked to the natural world. There's a corporeal rope to cling to in the sonic abyss Duda peddles.

NEW SONG: U2 - 'Invisible'.

NEW SONG: U2 - "Invisible".

 

The full video for U2's "Invisible" is now on YouTube. The black and white clip, directed by Mark Romanek, finds the Irish quartet performing against a massive tri-panel screen before an audience of exuberant fans. The video was shot in a Santa Monica airport hangar, over three days in January, 2014.

 

Produced by Danger Mouse and due on U2's forthcoming 13th studio album, the new track is typical of the band's joyous, soaring and inspiring anthems. Goosed by a motorik beat and piled high with Edge's otherworldly guitar spasms, the tune functions as both a love song and a universal call for harmony as Bono soulfully intones, "There is no them, there's only us."

UNDER THE RADAR: Sleepy Sun- "The Lane" (Official Music Video)

UNDER THE RADAR: SLEEPY SUN - "The Lane".

 

The latest album from San Franciscan psych outfit Sleepy Sun, titled Maui Tears, is now available everywhere. The album features diverse and dynamic tracks including cuts from the band's recent 7", "11:32" and "The Lane.” SPIN deems it a "mammoth psych-rock album" with its catchy, psych-tinged melodies, and soft dreamy songs, though still some of the band's heaviest material to date.

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: The B52's - "Love Shack".

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: B52's - "Love Shack".

 

"Love Shack" is a single by rock band The B-52's. Originally released in 1989 from their album Cosmic Thing.

 

Produced by Don Was,the song's inspiration was a cabin around Athens, Georgia, complete with tin roof, where the band conceived "Rock Lobster", a single from their first album; it is often said to have been located off "the Atlanta Highway", as the first verse implies. B-52's singer Kate Pierson lived in the cabin in the 1970s, and the cabin existed until 2004, when it burned down. "Tin roof...rusted," wailed by lead singer Cindy Wilson, was originally an outtake added to the track, and is perhaps the song's most memorable line.
