Sweet Baboo – “If I Died” {Alternative Pop}

This tune is weird as fuck but it will eventually grow on you if you give it a couple of listens. (Plus the dude likes to dress up as a kitty-cat, what’s not to love?) The track is off his new album Ships which is being released on April 22nd.

Dinosaur Jr. – “Entertainment” (Phoenix cover) {Rock} + Free download

Phoenix’s “Entertainment” has been one of the most talked about songs of 2013 thus far, so it was only a matter of time before someone gave it some cover love. And although not everyone seems to be a fan of the cover we’re actually starting to like it more than its original….(please don’t hurt us now).

The-Dream – “TRON” {Electronic/Rap}

Everyone’s been buzzing about this new track (because you know, the word “TRON” and electronic beats go so well together). The track is off his new album IV Play which is out May 7th via Def Jam.

The Leisure Society – “Fight For Everyone” {Pop/Rock}

If you’re still suffering from the pre-spring sads then you can certainly count on this summery track to help raise your spirits. This song is off the Londoners’ third album Alone Aboard The Ark, which is being released on April 1st.

Die Eternias – “King Youngstar” {Alternative Rock} + Free download

We wrote about Die Eternias’ awesome alt-countryish single “Ice Princess” last November, so we were pretty stoked to see that another new track from the Viennese was drifting around the interwebs. This song will be featured on their forthcoming vinyl split 7″ record which is being released next month.

Vampire Weekend – “Diane Young” + “Step” {Indie Rock}

It’s been a great week for us Vampire Weekenders as the group revealed not one, but two new singles off their new and highly anticipated album Modern Vampires Of The City. While “Step” sounds oddly similar to 2008′s “Campus,” “Diane Young” is slightly more rockish but the baroque piano chords help give it some primo Vampire Weekend edge. 

Casual Sex – “Soft School” {Garage Pop}

Glasgow’s Casual Sex have just revealed a brand new poppy tune which is actually a B-side to their debut single “Stroh 80” (released earlier this month). Their limited edition 7″ vinyl/download will be released via the Moshi Moshi Singles Club on April 1st.
