Hear 'Sons of Anarchy' soundtrack favorite the White Buffalo's new song 'Joey White' - EXCLUSIVE

Between his gravel-voiced tales of hardship and his epic beard, it’s no surprise that singer-songwriter the White Buffalo has had a total of six of his songs appear on Sons of Anarchy (including the awesome “The Whistler,” which underscored one of last season’s biggest moments).

The man born Jake Smith has several new projects coming up, including a song called “The American Dream” that will be appearing on the soundtrack to The Lone Ranger and a concept album he’s been working on called Shadows, Greys, and Evil Ways.

That album, due September 10, is a 14-track examination of an Iraq War veteran, from his enlistment to combat to his eventual return and unraveling. According to Smith, the track “Joey White” is the keystone. “This song follows Joey’s whirlwind military experience,” Smith explains. “Starting with joining, training, and the chaos of combat and war. He’s shot and sent home a changed man.”

Listen to the premiere of “Joey White” exclusively below:

Listen to acclaimed indie rockers Goldspot's new song 'Abyss' -- EXCLUSIVE

You may not know New York-based multi-culti rockers Goldspot by name — but if you have a television (their songs have been featured on shows like How I Met Your Mother and The OC), a Netflix account (The Dilemma, How Do You Know), or an Apple product (their music was used to help launch the iPad) you’ve probably heard them.

Though the band’s third album, Aerogramme, isn’t due till August 20, EW has an exclusive sneak peak of the record, produced by frontman Siddhartha Khosla and Beach Boys engineer Jeff Peters.

Listen to the jangling, melodic “Abyss” below (and preview another track, “The Border Line,” here on iTunes):

Take Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, add a guitar c/o of Jeff Tweedy, add one cat pun and some sunshine; shake well.

It is maybe almost too delightful. Stream it exclusively below.

Hear the 'Arrested Development' season-four finale song 'Boomerang' by Lucy Schwartz -- EXCLUSIVE

If you’re one of the bleary-eyed troopers who’s already made it through all fifteen episodes of Arrested Development‘s fourth season on Netflix (and if not, don’t worry, this isn’t a spoiler), then you likely noticed a bouncy little pop number during the last episode’s end credits.

So, what was the song? No, it wasn’t Mark Cherry’s “Getaway”; it’s “Boomerang” from L.A. singer-songwriter Lucy Schwartz, and you can hear it exclusively here.

The single is the first from Schwartz’s upcoming album Timekeeper, due August 6. And if you’re wondering how her song ended up snagging the high-profile spot in the show’s finale, well, it seems that AD creator Mitch Hurwitz is a big fan. “Lucy’s latest album is her Sgt. Pepper,” says Hurwitz. “Unbelievable. I can’t stop playing it or thinking about it. So brilliant and amazing.”

One more fun fact: Schwartz also provided the fake-British voice for AD‘s “Mr. F” and “For British Eyes Only” tunes.

But enough with the trivia; give “Boomerang” a listen below:

Ciara tosses Nicki Minaj-featured 'I'm Out' into summer-jam sweepstakes: Hear it here!

ciara.jpg

Remember Ciara? It’s cool if you don’t. Though she had a ridiculous opening run when she first came on, unleashing killer singles “Goodies” and “1,2 Step” in the back half of 2004. She’s run into diminishing returns since then, but her new single could be a game-changer.

“I’m Out” is the second single from her upcoming fifth album, Ciara, and it’s exactly the type of electro-kissed swaggering sass factory that makes for a great summer jam. (You know, the sort of songs Beyoncé used to make). And though Nicki Minaj can be poisonous on her guest spots, she puts in her best appearance in months on “I’m Out.” Considering how irresistible Ciara’s previous single “Body Party” has been, this could be the renaissance that she has been looking for since her debut.

Go ahead and give it a spin below. It’s huge, and it could only get bigger from here.  READ FULL STORY

Kelly Rowland releases intense new track 'Dirty Laundry', talks abusive boyfriend, Beyonce struggles: Hear it here

While the rumor mill swirls about Beyoncé’s possible bun in the Bey-oven, her former Destiny’s Child stablemate is making her own internet waves with a confessional new song.

Kelly Rowland’s new album Talk a Good Game comes out next month, and so far we’ve already heard the smooth Lil Wayne-assisted “Ice” and the barely SFW “Kisses Down Low,” but this morning Rowland unleashed an entirely different kind of conversation starter in the song “Dirty Laundry.”

The song finds Rowland airing out her feelings about an abusive ex-boyfriend and having to watch as Beyoncé’s career skyrocketed while her own failed to reach those kinds of heights. Listen below: READ FULL STORY

Hear This Century's 'Deadly Weapon' from their upcoming album 'Biography of Heartbreak' - EXCLUSIVE

Phoenix-based This Century began chipping away at the rock scene with their sweet, jangly 2011 debut, Sound of Fire.

Hear Pony Boy's 'Trouble,' a song from tonight's episode of 'Nashville' -- EXCLUSIVE

Trouble.jpg

Come for the backstabby prime-time drama, stay for the frequently-awesome original songs. ABC’s country drama Nashville continually supplies both, and tonight’s episode will keep the trend alive with plot points we won’t reveal, and Pony Boy‘s “Trouble,” which you can hear exclusively here.

Pony Boy, if you’re wondering, is actually a lady — singer-songwriter Marchelle Bradanini, to be exact. Bradanini has made her (gender-misleading) name by mixing the best parts of rock, country, the blues, and her own sultry voice, as she did on her recent single “Greatest Unknown.”

So get a jump on all the people who’ll watch Nashville tonight and pretend they were Pony Boy fans all along by checking out “Trouble” below:

Listen to Straight No Chaser's star-studded a cappella album 'Under the Influence' -- EXCLUSIVE

Straight-No-Chaser-2013.jpg

Has a cappella music ever been aca-hotter than it is right now?

Between Pitch Perfect‘s enduring success, Pentatonix’s viral savvy, and the recently resurrected competition The Sing-Off, the syllables “doo” and “bah” are totally having a moment right now.

One a cappella group, Straight No Chaser, was way ahead of the trend, and given their devoted fanbase of a caholics, it’s likely that they’ll be around long after it fades out of the pop culture forefront — if, in fact, it ever does.

Today, EW can exclusively reveal Straight No Chaser’s latest album, Under the Influence, which is streaming in full below. The inventive set is chock-full of guest appearances from stars like Sara Bareilles (a former a cappella member!), Jason Mraz, Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, and Elton John, who join the vocal crew on new versions of their own songs.

The album also includes jaunty arrangements of “Rolling in the Deep” and a mashup of fun.’s “Some Nights” and “We Are Young.” (Also, seriously, check out those bass notes on “I Want You Back”). Stream it all below: READ FULL STORY
