Liars: "No. 1 Against the Rush"
This is the first track from WIXIW, the upcoming album from Brooklyn's thunderous art-rock band. It has a slightly poppy electronic sheen—along the lines of early Human League or Suicide—not usually present in their sound. Still, a more melodic direction from these guys hardly brings them into iTunes commercial territory, so experimental music purists need not fret. [Soundcloud]
De La Soul: “We Made It”
You should probably listen to this new track from the D.A.I.S.Y. Age rappers right now. If you're sad, this is your cure. If you're already happy, well, you still aren't as enraptured as you will be if you press play on this whirl of soul, hip hop and funk.
Suckers: “Chinese Braille”
Suckers indulge in a little bit of Americana—with whistling,’ horns and soulful organ playin’—on this enticing track that sounds a touch like fellow indie rockers Born Ruffians. [Pitchfork]
