There Will Be Fireworks- "Youngblood"

I was a big fan of this Scottish bands 2009 debut, and now after a four year break the band is back with their second LP titled The Dark, Dark Bright. Falling somewhere between fellow countrymen Frightened Rabbit and The Twilight Sad, the bands music has the ability to be both sad and melancholy and explosive and raw.
The new LP comes out this Nov. 25th and it features the single, "Younblood" which you can watch a new video for below.

New Music: Damien Jurado- "Silver Timothy"

Damien Jurado will be releasing his 11th studio album sometime next month titled, Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Sun. He just released the first single today, and if you think the title has a psychedelic feel to it, you can listen to the spacey jam of a first single, "Silver Timothy" which Jurado unveiled a new video for.

Get to Know: Ezra Vine- "Celeste"

One of my favorite discoveries of late is this track from New Zealand musician, Ezra Vine called "Celeste." Vine apparently released a few tracks earlier this year under the name 'Les Enfants' that caught some buzz on bandcamp and landed him in the top sellers of their folk category.
I wish I had some more info on this one, but there's not much out there besides the news that the track comes off a forthcoming EP due later this month.

Modern Kin- "Pony"

You might know Drew Grow from his previous work with Drew Grow and the Pastors Wives. The band now has a slimmed down roster and a new name, Modern Kin. They just released their self titled debut in late Oct. and it's filled with brilliant rousing tracks like this one called, "Pony."
Check out the rest of the album on the groups bandcamp page HERE.

Update: "Pony" is now down on the bands bandcamp page, listen to it here on Soundcloud.

The National-"Lean" (from Hunger Games Catching Fire soundtrack)

The new Hunger Games Catching Fire Soundtrack is coming out later this month and it features some big names like Of Monsters and Men, The Lumineers, Lorde, and Coldplay. But the track I was most interested in hearing was from The National who lent the song,"Lean" to the collection.  Typically great stuff, give it a try below. The soundtrack hits stores on Nov. 19th.
