CHVRCHES ft. Matt Berninger – “My Enemy”

Scottish trio CHVRCHES has confirmed their upcoming album Love Is Dead, which is to be released on March 25th. The band say they’ve been fans of The National forever – so when they decided to email Matt Berninger in hopes he would agree to sing in their new track, they didn’t believe it would happen. To their surprise, Berninger replied right away and recorded the track at his house the next day! Here’s the result. 

The Beaches – “T-Shirt”

Let’s get local! The Beaches debut Late Show is filled with Rock n roll gems, and was produced by Metric’s Emily Hainez. Check out their rocking tune, “T-Shirt”.

Jack White – “Over and Over and Over”

Jack White’s upcoming album Boarding House Reach will be out March 23. Judging from the first two tracks, it’s going to be all over the map. Since playing this for the first time, I’ve been in many discussions as to whether he was channeling Zappa or a Rage Against the Machine, either way, this is a jam you can rock out to.

Mounties – “Burning Money”

The excellent Canadian supergroup Mounties are back! In case you missed it, Mounties are the incredible collab of Hawksley Workman, Steve Bays of Hot Hot Heat and Ryan Dahle of Limblifter. Here’s their latest “Burning Money.”

Coin – “Growing Pains”

This band got their start 6 years ago in Nashville and really made waves last year with their second record. Coin is back with a new track, and in case you weren’t 100% sure, this has nothing to do with the 80s TV show Growing Pains.
