Check out the latest tune from the Michigan rockers Frontier Ruckus, "Bathroom Stall Hypnosis", which deals with the fallout of a "weird and unceremonious" breakup.

“Bathroom Stall Hypnosis” is one of the first tracks to drop from the Michigan rock outfit Frontier Ruckus’ forthcoming album, Sitcom Afterlife. The song’s energetic instrumentation is a catchy and clever masquerade for the album’s reflective and deep lyrical material, a trait which runs through Frontier Ruckus’ music overall. (PopMatters writer Justin Cober-Lake has called the group’s lyrical style “carefully crafted stream of consciousness.”) The band is just coming off their 2013 double LP, Eternity of Dimming, and based on the vivacious spirit of this song, the release of Sitcom Afterlife has a lot in store for listeners.

As a part of Yahoo Live's extensive concert series, OK Go will take to Yahoo's online stage on August 14th.

Summer is a time for large-scale music festivals and concerts. From the smallest venue to the largest empty fields full of high-energy music lovers, one can find just about any artist she likes on stage during the toasty summer months. However, for those unable to leave the cozy confines of their homes (or unwilling to brave large crowds of overexcited young people), Yahoo! Live has the answer.

The ever-mysterious Swedish musical collective Goat has released a new track from its forthcoming album Commune, the brief teaser "Words".

If one believes the band’s press materials, the shadowy Swedish music collective Goat hails from Korpilombolo, a locality in the municipality of Pajala in Northern Sweden. It is highly probable that the group does come from there, but given its devotion to anonymity, they could just as easily live on another planet. Based on the sound of Goat’s otherworldly psychedelic hodgepodge, the notion that the collective occupies another terrestrial realm is just as likely.
