Today Car Seat Headrest announced their new album Making A Door Less Open will be released on May 1st via Matador Records.

“Can’t Cool Me Down” has been a part of the band’s live set for some time now and here it gets a bit of a more of electronic treatment. Which isn’t an accident, as the album is “the result of a fruitful “collaboration” between Car Seat Headrest, led by Will Toledo, and 1 Trait Danger, a CSH electronic side project consisting of drummer Andrew Katz and Toledo’s alternative persona, “Trait.””

The band actually recorded the album twice, once with live guitars, drums and bass, and then once in a MIDI environment using purely synthesized sound. These two approaches were combined during the mixing process, using elements from both sessions with additional overdubs.

Hazel English has announced that he new album is entitled Wake UP! and it will be released via Polyvinyl Records/Marathon Artists on April 24th.

Along with the album announcement comes new single “Off My Mind.” English has warmed our hearts from the very beginning of her career with lovely and thoughtful indie-pop gems and this one is no different.

It’s another song about longing for a love and not being sure what to do. As she described, it’s “about feeling stuck in a situation but too afraid to make a move. It’s about the limbo state between where you are and where you want to be.”

Anna Burch will return with her sophomore album If You’re Dreaming, which will see its release via Polyvinyl Records on April 3rd.

Our first taste of the new record comes with single “Not So Bad.” It’s a lovely offering that has a ton of smart layers that are not immediate at first but work their way to the surface every second that the song goes on. It’s a mature step forward for the songwriter, who already proved to be quite the talent on her first go-around.

Real Estate have been teasing the release of a new album for the better part of a year which makes today’s official news of their fifth album that much more exciting. It’s entitled The Main Thing and will be released on February 28th via Domino Records.

The band have also dropped first single “Paper Cup,” which features guest vocals from Amelia Meath of Sylvan Esso. The track is a notable shift in direction for the band who take on a disco-groove and sees them lean a bit harder into their jammy tendencies. That clean polished Real Estate sound is still very much there but this is a nice evolution for their sound.
