Fiona Apple – “Dull Tool” {Alternative Pop}

A lot of peeps are raving about this new Fiona Apple track, which should be good news for her considering the recent drug and doggy issues. The track, written for the new Judd Apatow film This is 40, starts off with some baroque pop vibes, but then transforms into a psych-folk extravaganza. To read up on some of the many other awesome artists featured on the This is 40 soundtrack click here.

of Montreal – “Propaganda” {Pop/Rock}

If you’re wondering why “Propaganda” sounds slightly different than the of Montreal you’re used to hearing, it’s probably because it was written during the band’s early days (AKA before they went on an experimental rampage). The band decided to release the rare track as a thank you to those who have donated money to their new documentary Song Dynasties. 

Janitors – “Yard Sale” {Punk} + Free download

This, nitty, gritty “I Wanna Be Sedated”-ish track is from the Toronto-based Janitors, who have been creating a stir since the release of their single “Your Son” back in August. Still no word as to whether “Yard Sale” will be included on an upcoming release.

Potatohead People ft. Claire Mortifee – “Blossoms” {R&B/Soul}

The Vancouver/Montreal duo Potatohead People (consisting of Nick Wisdom and AstroLogical) just posted a brand new track off their recent Kosmichemusik EP featuring the lyrics of Claire Mortifee. Other talents on the EP include Detroit rapper Frank Nitt and Moka Only.

The Mary Onettes – “Evil Coast” {Dream Pop}

After building up a massive fan base over the past 13 years, the Swedish Mary Onettes are back with a brand new album (Hit the Waves) which is due out November 27th. This is the first single off the album, which is being released by the Swedish label Labrador.

Buke and Gase – “General Dome” {Experimental}

Even though the group just released their Function Falls EP two months ago, fans will be delighted to hear that the New York-based duo are going to be releasing yet another album at the end of January. The album (also titled General Dome) will be released via Brassland; for more information click here.

Biffy Clyro – “Black Chandelier” {Rock}

This new Biffy single is going to be officially released on  January 14th along with two B-sides (“The Rain” and “Thundermonster”). The track is off the band’s new double album Opposites, which is expected to drop on January 28th.

New Navy – “Regular Town” {Indie Pop}

Given that the Australian summer season is in full swing right now, it seems fitting that the Sydney-based New Navy teased us with the release of this tropical tune during the start of our winter. The track is off the group’s new album of the same title, which is being released digitally at the end of November via Future Classic.

Pissed Jeans – “Bathroom Laughter” {Garage Rock/Punk}

The Pennsylvania punkers known as Pissed Jeans just posted the first single off their forthcoming album Honeys which is being released by Sub Pop in February; to pre-order the album click here.

Yo La Tengo – “Before We Run” {Alternative Pop}

Yo La Tengo have always been known for dabbling in a variety of different genres, so fans won’t be too shocked to find out that this new track sounds surprisingly classical and more poppy than their usual tunes. The single is off their 13th (!) album Fade, which is out on January 15th via Matador Records, and its “video” was created by Emily Hubley

Daft Punk – “Emphazed” {Electronic/Dance}

The music blog world is buzzing about this new electronic track that mysteriously made the rounds on the interwebs the other day. Is it Daft Punk? Or is it some sick and twisted artist trying to pull a quick one on us? Nothing has been confirmed by official sources yet, so take this track with a grain of salt.
