Nine Inch Nails, “Copy of A”: Nine Inch Nails have released another surprisingly synth-driven track from their upcoming album, Hesitation Marks, out September 3 on Columbia. Download the song for free for a limited time here.
King Krule, “Neptune Estate”: “Neptune Estate” is the latest from London’s Archie Marshall (now performing under the much cooler moniker King Krule). The plodding, vaguely DJ Shadow-esque track will appear on the singer-songwriter’s debut, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, due out August 27th.
Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band featuring Adam Horovitz & Mike D, “Bad Dancer”: Not quite as silly as her collaboration with Tune-Yards, Yoko Ono’s “Bad Dancer” finds Beastie Boys Ad-Rock and Mike D reunited for the first time since the tragic death of MCA. The track is from Plastic Ono Band’s Take Me to the Land of Hell, out September 17th.
Snow Ghosts, “And the World Was Gone”: Featured on last week’s episode of MTV’s Teen Wolf, the second single from Snow Ghosts’ A Small Murmuration is one of the more conventional songs on the album, a subtly Middle Eastern-hued ballad reminiscent of Lana Del Rey. A Small Murmuration is available now on iTunes, and will be released on CD on August 20th.
