With their newest studio release El Pintor just on the horizon, Interpol has just dropped the first music video from the LP. The song, “All the Rage Back Home”, is a driving, foot-tapping number that’s perfect for building up anticipation leading up to El Pintor‘s public unveiling.

The musicians of the Gloaming are awash with independent projects so a rare performance by this Irish supergroup is a decided must-see. Watch one here.

WNYC’s New Sounds series allowed me to catch the Gloaming for the first time, a band I had been following for the past nine months or so having missed their prior performance in New York with the Kronos Quartet. During that time, their debut self-titled album was released and though it may have only found a small audience so far, it earned massive applause from the primarily European outlets that picked up on it. The Gloaming has its primary roots in Ireland and consists of Iarla Ó Lionaird’s traditional sean-nós vocals and organ, Thomas Bartlett / aka Doveman on piano, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh playing the hardanger fiddle, Martin Hayes on fiddle and Dennis Cahill on guitar.

The British sensation Jessie Ware has released the first tune from her yet-untitled forthcoming new album, the '80's-indebted "Tough Love".

With 2012’s Devotion, English singer sensation Jessie Ware took the world by storm with her impressive, refined vocals, as well as her take on soul music. Not much has been heard about the kind of music she will be making on her yet-untitled forthcoming new album, but if “Tough Love” is any indication, she’s expanding her music to the growing realm of synth-pop.

The London-based Jungle meld pop, funk, and electro into an infectious mix on its latest video, "Time", from their forthcoming self-titled LP.

If Jungle isn’t on your radar now, then adjust your sights. (Although don’t say we didn’t warn you!) This group, based out of London are in the business of making pop music that is impossible to get out of your head. Their latest video, the positively infectious “Time”, is an appropriate teaser for the band’s forthcoming full-length, self-titled debut, which brings together pop, funk, and electro into a striking melange.

Sir Paul McCartney has released another video from his most recent studio effort, New, the folksy "Early Days".

Though Paul McCartney‘s legacy is primarily defined by perfecting the pop formula with his cohorts in the Beatles, in recent years, with LPs like Memory Almost Full and last year’s New, he has continued to try to push himself into other musical directions. (He also tried his hand at ballet, but some things are best left forgotten).
