Under The Radar

  1. We took a break from Songs of the Week last week due to a little vacation by our publishers. So this week we are compiling the best songs of the last two weeks. Hence we couldn't contain the list to our usual Top 10, although we didn't do too badly, only expanding to a Top 11 and a few more honorable mentions than usual. 
  2. Tancred is the project of Jess Abott. Back in June the Maine musician released her fourth full-length album, Nightstand, via Polyvinyl. Now she has shared a video for the album's "Something Else." Jason Lester directed the video, which is inspired by the teen TV show Riverdale (as well as Twin Peaks), but with a gay twist. 
  3. Parquet Courts released a new Danger Mouse-produced album, Wide Awake!, back May via Rough Trade. A few weeks back the band released a video for "Freebird II" but it was an Apple Music exclusive. This week the Claes Nordwall-directed video was finally posted to YouTube for all to see. 
  4. Death Cab for Cutie released a new album, Thank You For Today, today via Atlantic. Last night the band stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform the album's first single "Gold Rush," which might be Death Cab for Cutie's catchiest single in years.
  5. Three years after 2015's Kintsugi, Seattle's Death Cab for Cutie are releasing their first album as a quintet, Thank You for Today. Founding guitarist/producer Chris Walla left the band following the recording of Kintsugi and didn't tour that album, but Thank You for Today sees touring guitarists/keyboardists Dave Depper and Zac Rae become official fulltime members (joining founding singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard, founding bassist Nick Harmer, and longtime drummer Jason McGerr).
