Daily Round-Up For September 17, 2013
Hey, hey music lovers! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbitâ€™s one and only collection of all the latest and greatest music news of the day. Letâ€™s dive right in!
The now frontman-less Yuck have released a music video for their new track, Middle Sea. It features the groupâ€™s much-adored drummer playing a very intense tennis match. Be sure to check out the song and the video back at Stereogum.
The Field have also let loose with a new installment of looping and rolling electronic tunes. The tune is called Cupidâ€™s Head, and you can listen to it back at Stereogum.
Four Tet has also premiered a new song. The song is entitled Parallel Jalebi and will presumably feature on the producerâ€™s upcoming new record, Beautiful Rewind. The album is set for release later this year. The song is at The Line of Best Fit.
In some particularly sad news, indie-pop artist Sky Ferreira and DIIVâ€™s Zachary Cole has been arrested on drug-related charges. Details are scarce, but it seems that Cole was carrying a good bit of heroin. Hopefully, this can all get sorted out before Ferreiraâ€™s new album is released within the month. You can find the full story back at Stereogum.
Reports are saying that Drakeâ€™s new record, Nothing Was The Same, leaked over the weekend to torrent sites and blogs. And while the full record might not be available everywhere legally yet, the song Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2, featuring Jay Z, was released everywhere to tide us over. You can listen to the song back at Oh So Fresh Music.
As they do most Mondays, NPR is hosting a collection of new albums to be streamed on their site a week before their intended release date. Among the most note-worthy records this week is the new one from CHVRCHES, The Bones Of What You Believe. You can listen to that as well as albums by Au Revoir Simone, Elvis Costello and The Roots, and Mazzy Star, back at NPR Music.
And finally, music streaming service Rdio is looking to gain ground on its competitors Spotify, Pandora, and Google Play, by offering a free music service provided by a radio broadcaster called NYT. Whoâ€™s to say what this move means for Rdio or the future of music streaming services, but it sounds like pretty big news. You can check out the whole story back at The Verge.
