The War On Drugs have a new album out on March 18, 2014 entitled Lost In The Dream and, from the sound of the lead single, they'll be picking up right where Slave Ambient left off. The lead single, "Red Eyes", nails the spacey sound that made the band's first two albums so compelling. I can't wait to hear the rest.

"We’re not a band that sits down and discusses what we want to do—we approach everything instinctively. We really wanted our growth as musicians to shine through, though, and how we’ve progressed from the last record. So this one was a little more layered, and a little more complicated."
— Tyler Williams
Great read on The Head and The Heart's new album, Let's Be Still, via Georgia Straight.

The new single from Damien Jurado's Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son, entitled "Silver Timothy", is out today. The last two albums that Jurado created with producer Richard Swift have been two of his most unique and strongest albums to date. From the sound of the single it seems as though Swift is still pushing Jurado out of his comfort zone and getting some fantastically beautiful results in the process.

Will Sheff from Okkervil River performed a few songs from The Silver Gymnasium (one of this year's best albums) on CBS This Morning. It's a great, stripped down performance (though the camera work is fairly distracting). Recommended.

Tom Waits has been my favorite musician for quite some time and I've been dying to see him live. I was able to grab tickets to the Bridge School Benefit where he'll be performing for the first time in five years and I absolutely cannot wait to see it.
