Double Dagger

“No Allies”

More was released last year on Thrill Jockey. The Masks EP was released in March on Thrill Jockey. Seems so easy, but why then can’t I get my hot single released on Thrill Jockey?

Yo La Tengo

“Here To Fall (Pete Rock remix)”

Yo La Tengo just got a little less white (sorta), as the mighty Pete Rock has remixed the opening track, “Here To Fall,” from last year’s Popular Songs. It’s released as a digital single via iTunes today, but look for it June 8 on the Here To Fall Remixes EP if you ain’t into that iTunes bullshit.

It’s been over a decade since we’ve heard from Markus Popp, but he’s finally back with some new music as Oval. He’ll be releasing an EP titled Oh on June 15, which will be followed by a double album, O, in September. Check out the new track “Ah!” and remind yourself how awesome Oval is.
