Gypsy & the Cat, whose debut album Gilgamesh made my Top Albums list in 2011, have released a new song and video from their forthcoming sophomore album. “Sorry” builds on the band’s indie pop sounds and give me a lot of hope for what we’ll hear on their new collection.

Check out the video below.

New wave stalwarts Devo have finally released their ode to Seamus Romney, who was famously tied to the roof of the Romney family car on one of their road trips in 1983. The band says they don’t have a full album in the works, but are not against posting songs as they are created.

Bloc Party have ended their hiatus and will release the band’s fourth album, aptly titled Four on August 20th. They are streaming the album now on their website. Head over to four.blocparty.com to check it out.

The band had been leaning electronic on their last two albums, in particular Intimacy, but on Four we see them abandon that almost entirely, along with their dancey hooks, for a more straight ahead rock sound. While a different sound than previous releases this works well, and I think most fans will find it refreshing.

Hooray For Earth snagged my ears with the release of True Loves last year. Now they are set to introduce some new music on Dovecote Records. The label will release “Never” b/w “Figure” August 21 as “twin singles” according to the label’s website. I think this song is great as it continues the band’s juxtaposition of lofty, pop vocals over lo-fi production. I’ll be lined up to pick this one up next week.

I can’t stop listening to this song! It’s Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros with out all the annoying jam band bs. That’s how I describe the album.

Is “Little Talks” this summer’s “Home”? Give it a listen below.

Japandroids are one of my absolute favorite bands right now, and their sophomore effort, Celebration Rock, is helping to solidify that opinion. The album is a more concise collection than their debut album while still harboring the same frantic energy and lyrical wit. The two-piece features heavily fuzzed guitar sounds and manic drumming that set them apart from other two-piece bands. This is not a blues band like the White Stripes or the Black Keys; no, this is a rock duo, and they will melt your face. Or at least make you convulse to the beat (some may call it dancing).

Check out “The House That Heaven Built,” below. This song was also recently released as a limited edition 7″ on clear vinyl via Polyvinyl Records.

Celebration Rock is set to be released June 5, and is available for pre-order now from Polyvinyl and Amazon.

Silversun Pickups will release their third album, Neck of the Woods, on May 8. The band is streaming the album in full via MTV Buzzworthy, and as far as I can tell it’s another amazing collection of fuzzy, alt-rock with Brian Aubert’s trademark cryptic lyrics. I’m definitely excited to get this onto my iPhone so I can rock it while I run.
