The new Super Furry Animals album Dark Days / Light Years releases digitally via Rough Trade on April 14th and in physical form on April 21st. Of course, as many of you know the Welsh popsters have already released it digitally on their own website. Here’s a slice of the tunes on offer, “Inaugural Trams”.

For those of us unable to attend SXSW, such as myself, Tanya Morgan recorded their live set to add to our jealousy. With 10 tracks ranging from teasers to interludes to full-length cuts, this is certainly a nice treat and preview of their upcoming album Brooklynati. While this mix cannot compare to the vibe of actually being there and losing your mind in person, you could always turn this way up, let it bump, and pretend.

For the first time in its history, music criticism website Tiny Mix Tapes is actually posting mix tapes for stream or download. Each one comes with unique cover art, and is presented, in true mix tape fashion, as a single continuous side. Themes thus far have ranged from experimental jazz and indie to instrumental hip-hop and electronica. No word yet if Pitchfork is going to start handing out hay shoveling utensils.

Death Cab for Cutie has released a new video for “Grapevine Fires”, from their recent album Narrow Stairs. “Grapevine Fires” was initially inspired by Ben Gibbard’s up-close-and-personal encounter with 2007’s California wildfires. The song motivated the celebrated animation duo Walter Robot to create an animated short film which relays the sense of devastating tragedy and forced optimism caused by the fire’s wrath.  Death Cab for Cutie can be seen on tour this spring on the dates listed below.
