Oscar winner Shawn Christensen premieres 'Sophia So Far': Hear it here - EXCLUSIVE

Before he was an Oscar-winning short film director (he picked up the statuette in the Best Live Action Short Film during the televised ceremony last month for his film Curfew), Shawn Christensen was the frontman for mid-aughts Brooklyn guitar band Stellastarr.

Christensen brought his musical aesthetic to his award-winning film, which he wrote, directed, and starred in. In fact, one of Curfew‘s finest moments arrives when Sophia (Fatima Ptacek) dances along to a song in a bowling alley, which strangely mesmerizes the other bowlers. That song, “Sophia So Far,” was recorded by Christensen under the name Goodnight Radio and has gone unreleased—until now.

It’s available to purchase on iTunes, but you can also stream it exclusively below.  READ FULL STORY

Fall Out Boy streaming new album 'Save Rock and Roll' in full


What hiatus? Fall Out Boy made its years-long absence all the sweeter with their recent announcement of a forthcoming album, Save Rock and Roll — and now that announcement is already old news because the entire album is streaming on the band’s website, in advance of its April 16 release. In addition, the lyrics for each song are included. Or as Patrick Stump, et al. wrote on the site, “Learn the words and sing along at our upcoming shows.” Not coincidentally, tickets to Fall Out Boy’s tour are also on sale.

Vampire Weekend premiere new songs 'Diane Young' and 'Step': Hear them here

In between all of the epic Prince sets, Justin Timberlake covers of INXS songs, and Usher drop-ins, it would have been easy to miss one of the more exciting moments of SXSW weekend: the return of Vampire Weekend.

Playing their first North American shows since announcing their upcoming album Modern Vampires of the City, the New York quartet pulled the curtain back on some new music. The album is out May 6, but the band decided to put two new songs on the Internet today. Official first single “Diane Young” is an envelope-pushing blast of power pop, while “Step” is a mellower jam more akin to the band’s earlier material.

Listen to both songs below, and enjoy those mesmerizing images of cars on fire while you’re at it:


Little Boots premieres new song 'Broken Record'


After a short break from the scene, British dance-pop whiz-girl Little Boots is ready to return and disrupt.

The English artist — née Victoria Hesketh — has her sophomore effort, Nocturnes, due out May 7, and late last month, she offered a preview of what’s to come with the song “Motorway.” Now she’s something new for fans: the Nocturne track “Broken Record,” which you can listen to here.

With its pulsing beat and zippy chorus, the new song is more uptempo than the arty “Motorway.” Going off what we know, Nocturnes — which was produced by Tim Goldsworthy the co-founder of DFA Records and onetime man from UNKLE – will have an expansive sound.

Give the new Little Boots track “Broken Record” a listen in the clip below:


Beyonce premieres new songs 'Bow Down' and 'I Been On': Hear them here

No announcements of an announcement for her. Last night, Queen Bey (rather unceremoniously) debuted new music via SoundCloud and Instagram.

Check out “Bow Down” and “I Been On” below.


Spacehog return with 'Wish You Well': Hear it here - EXCLUSIVE

Back in 1995, Spacehog—four dudes from England who formed a band in New York City—landed on the rock moonscape with “In the Meantime,” one of the greatest alt-rock singularities of the post-Cobain radio universe.

Bathed in glammy goodness and sleek ’70s swagger, “In the Meantime” set the tone for Spacehog’s debut album, Resident Alien, which contained much more of the same. Along with the band’s sophomore release The Chinese Album, Spacehog crafted one of the most underrated discographies of the end of the last century.

They haven’t made an album since 2001’s The Hogyssey, and after a long hiatus and a handful of side projects, the group has returned with their fourth album As It Is On Earth, which will be released on April 16. In reuniting with producer Bryce Goggin (who helmed their ’90s output), the band has recreated the same kind of star-kissed energy that they brought on their debut.

Listen to “Wish You Well” exclusively below, and do your own judging:


Lady Antebellum talks new single 'Downtown': Listen to it here -- EXCLUSIVE

Lady Antebellum are putting the final touches on their fourth studio album, due this spring, and if the lead single “Downtown” is any indication — and Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood say it definitely is — it’s going to be a fun one.

On the song, which EW is streaming exclusively below, Scott sings lead and sassily asks why her partner doesn’t take her out and show her off anymore. (There’s a playfulness we haven’t heard on a Lady A single since “Lookin’ for a Good Time.”)

Listen after the jump, and find out what they have to say about why this album is different, what they have in common (or not) with a certain PBS television phenomenon, and why their recently-announced CMT Crossroads pairing with Stevie Nicks will be awesome. READ FULL STORY

Stream the new Twenty One Pilots album 'Vessel' here -- EXCLUSIVE


Now let’s take a break from tallying up our favorite albums of the past year and take a look at an album from next year.

The Columbus band Twenty One Pilots (stylized as twenty | one | pilots) has been on tour all summer with the Neon Trees, and soon they’ll be ready to release their debut album. Titled Vessel, the record will be out on Jan. 8 of next year on Fueled By Ramen, but you can stream the whole thing exclusively here.

The duo — Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun — have been gaining kudos for singles like “Holding on to You” and “Guns for Hands,” which mix zippy keyboards, melodic guitars, and rock-meets-rap vocal stylings. The album was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Greg Wells, who’s worked with everyone from Adele to Katy Perry.

Intrigued? Check out their upcoming Vessel with the exclusive full-album stream below:


'Django Unchained' soundtrack posted online: Stream it here

One of the best parts about Spaghetti Western movies are the Spaghetti Western soundtracks that come with them, and Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained is no exception.

Although, it kind of is. Regular standby scorers like Ennio Morricone, Luis Bacalov, and Jerry Goldsmith show up for memorable little compositions, with snippets of dialogue from the Jamie Foxx-starring movie spliced in. But also on this soundtrack are very modern, very cool numbers from the likes of Rick Ross (“100 Black Coffins”), John Legend (“Who Did That to You?”), and James Brown and 2Pac (mashed up from the dead on “Unchained (The Payback/Untouchable)”).

Check out the soundtrack to the new Quentin Tarantino flick in the player below:


Django Django get trippy in 'Life's a Beach' video: Watch it here -- EXCLUSIVE

As we noted in our November playlist, the spacey British indie rockers in Django Django have made quite the impression on our playlists since their Mercury Prize-nominated debut made it to our shores this fall.

That impressive self-titled album was coupled with their surrealist “Hail Bop” video, which combined Tron, Salvador Dali, and our weirdest lucid dreams. Now the four-piece has a new clip for their song “Life’s a Beach,” and it takes that psychedelic aesthetic one step further with out-there visual effects that one might encounter on late-night public-access television circa 1989.

Check out Django Django’s latest visual treat in the video exclusively on below:
