Here’s Death Cab acting very serious while playing their song for the upcoming Twilight sequel, New Moon. Ben Gibbard will tolerate neither trifles nor high jinks while playing this serious song. Even the most innocent jink, high or otherwise, would throw off the atmosphere of this entire operation.

“Whale Song” comes from the odds-and-ends collection, No One’s First and You’re Next and proves that Modest Mouse throws away songs most bands would sell their soul to write. It can only be viewed over at Vimeo for the time being, but it is worth the trip.

Releasing: 27 October

Weezer’s Raditude is set to hit stores off Geffen on October 27th. The Spicoli-inspired title and wildly silly tracks like “I’m Your Daddy” and “The Girl Got Hot” show Weezer channeling their pop-punk through their pimple-faced teenage years.  “(If You’re Wondering if I Want You To) I Want You To”, Raditude‘s first single, is filled with quirky nostalgia. Watch Weezer perform “(If You’re Wondering if I Want You To) I Want You To” live.

Tegan and Sara
Releasing: 27 October

Sainthood will be Canadian indie rock duo Tegan and Sara’s sixth studio album off Sire Records. Known for their highly personal lyrics, Tegan and Sara will be giving an even more intimate look into their onstage/offstage sisterhood dynamic by releasing a three-book set entitled, “On, In, At”, which will be available for pre-order Sainthood. The book set features writings and photographs taken from the band’s onstage experience, their writing session in New Orleans, and the final tour supporting their last album, The Con. The not-so-beatific first single “Hell” shoots barbs at city trash and the jaded. Stream “Hell” on Tegan and Sara’s official website, and check out the three tour dates they’ve just announced below.
