The Raveonettes have been working with producer Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, Go-Go’s) on their sixth record, and today the first single from the new album, Observator, emerged. The spacious, haunting track is called [interestingly enough] 'Observations' -- a piano-led cut that explores echoey textures. You really get a sense of the band's spatial awareness. Grab it below.

A day after The Antlers teased their forthcoming Undersea EP with the lush ethereal jam 'Drift Dive', the trio unleashed another cut called 'Crest' [this morning to be specific]. It’s a somewhat glitchy, sample-laden affair that explores similar sonic territory as 'Drift Dive'. Remember the underwater dystopia from the first Bioshock game? Their audio newness would be a perfect addition to the soundtrack exploring the ruined town (as opposed to the scenes where mutants try to claw your face off).
Undersea is out 7/24 in the U.S. on Anti- and 7/30 in the UK on Transgressive.
