Wilco – “Random Name Generator”

Are you excited to see Wilco when they’re in Toronto for TURF next month? They released a new album, Star Wars, for free in July — if you haven’t had a chance to get acquainted yet, here you go!

Santigold – “Radio”

You havent heard anything from Santigold since 2012’s Master of My Make Believe… reports say she’s working on a new album that should come out later this year, but in the meantime you have this brand new track off the soundtrack for the movie Paper Towns, which came out last week.

Foals – “Mountains At My Gates”

For 10 years, Oxford band Foals has been pumping out indie rock … their fourth album What Went Down is slated to hit your ears this August, and it’s gonna be jangly.

MS MR – “Criminals”

Brooklyn duo MS MR’s sophomore album How Does It Feel came out earlier this month, and this track is a little poppier and a little faster than what you may have heard from them before.

James Bay – “Let It Go”

If you dropped by Sherbourne Commons over the weekend, you mighta heard the sweet sweet voices of George Ezra and James Bay – they were in town playing a show together. You already know Bay’S big hit “Hold Back the River” – here’s another one from his album.
