New singles ready to mingle!

Feist_lThey’re ready to mingle with your earbuds, but they never said exclusively. Two of my current favorite acts have released singles from their highly anticipated releases and I thought I would share the goodness with all of you PopWatchers.

If you do in fact find yourself whistling while you work away in your cube to these lovely tunes on this Day We Liken to a Hump, I just want to say, "You’re welcome," in advance.

"My Moon My Man" by Feist
I don’t know why, but this song sounds like it should be a clever crime sleuth’s slinky theme song, but you know, it’d have to be a cool crime sleuth, like uh… Veronica Mars! (Didn’t last night’s ep rock? Anyway.) I do know that Ms. Leslie Feist (pictured) sounds simply divine on this track. It’s enough to keep me satisfied until her new album The Reminder comes out May 1.

"23" by Blonde Redhead
It’s been too long since Blonde Redhead’s last album, Misery Is Butterfly, so my ears instantly perked up when I learned that not one, but two! (Two!) new songs by the former art-school trio had surfaced in the blogosphere recently. My early favorite is ”23,” with its wall of distorted guitars that crash into Kazu Makino’s layered vocals ever so befittingly. Blonde Redhead’s new album, 23 will be released on April 10.

Are you excited about any other upcoming music releases?

    Feist is amazing. I love her work with Broken Social Scene and it’s awesome to hear she’s got some new music coming out, bummer we have to wait until May! Feist + VM = LoVe

    I love Feist. I actually didn’t know about her until she did some songs with Kings of Convenience on their last album – it was pleasantly surprising to see her on stage with them when they played Spaceland last year. :)
    I’m realllllly looking forward to Air’s Pocket Symphony. I love me some french pop seduction.

    that blonde redhead track is awesome. it’s got a more fleshed out and cohesive sound than the stuff I’ve heard from them previously. add me to the list excited about that one.
    also excited about the new Andrew Bird CD, and the new Sea and Cake. and Air’s coming out with a new one too? awesome.

    I loved both of those tracks! I can’t wait for the Feeling’s ‘Twelve Stops and Home’ to finally release in the US, they are so much fun!!

  • ian

    In addition to feist I’m also excited about Ted Leo, Dinosaur Jr., the arcade fire and Rush (the last one might be a bit too mainstream though)

    Matt Nathanson, who gets way too little attention, is planning new album for late summer/early fall that should be fantastic.
    His last album was recorded live and was amazing, but I can’t wait to hear the new stuff.
