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.

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.

Handsome Furs – Repatriated by subpop

The new Handsome Furs album, Sound Kapital, is awesome, and is quickly moving up the ranks of my personal “album of the year” list. “Repatriated” is one of my favorite songs on the album, and you can get it from SubPop for free. The band, a wife and husband, synth-rock combo from Montreal, released their third album in June and I’ve been loving it ever since getting a hold of it. Dan Boeckner, also of Wolf Parade (another great band), really gets at the vocals on this album. Sound Kapital has better production quality than their two previous albums, and I it pays dividends for their overall sound. The two really pack a punch in studio, and this album is a stiff right hook to excellent town. You can also listen to “What About Us,” from the new album, below.

You can purchase the album on CD, vinyl, or MP3 from SubPop. It is also available on Amazon and iTunes.
