Stream all of this week's new music releases from the Arctic Monkeys, Arcade Fire, and The Orwells below. Then check out the new teaser trailer for Chromeo's new album and the new music videos from Julia Holter and Waxahatchee.
The Arctic Monkeys released AM today, which has perhaps been our most anticipated release of September. The full drop comes after four other releases this year, "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're Hight?," "Stop The World I Wanna Get Off With You," "Do I Wanna Know?," and "2013," two of which made the record. Stream below and catch the Arctic Monkeys on tour this fall in both the US and Europe.
While not a full album, we're as excited for Arcade Fire's "Reflektor" as we would be if it was. It is fantastic. Stream the 7+ minute track below and then preorder the full album of the same name. So far, the group's only tour dates are in Australia and New Zealand in January.
Punk youngsters The Orwells released Who Needs You EP today, a follow up from Other Voices EP dropped earlier this year. The Orwells have been hitting the festival circuit since SXSW this past March, and will continue to tour this fall with FIDLAR plus stops at Austin City Limits and then the Weezer Cruise in 2014.
LA-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Julia Holter has shared the official video for "This Is A True Heart" from her recently released album Loud City Song, her third LP in as many years. Watch the video below and find her on Fall tour, which kicks off today.
Waxahatchee also shared a new video today, from their sophomore album Cerulean Salt. The black and white video features Katie Crutchfield singing "Misery Over Dispute" while tapping in her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. Waxahatchee's tour with the Screaming Females starts this Friday.
Another new video comes today from Chromeo to announce his new album, slated for a release date of a vague "coming soon." The video features the Chromeo duo getting three-way hitched, while "Over Your Shoulder" plays. Not many tour dates announced of yet, though you can catch Chromeo in January on the Holy Ship!!!.
