Published Apr 25, 2011With Easter drawing to a close, your supply of chocolate may be dangerously low again. But you shouldn't feel too down, because now you can binge on new music instead at Exclaim.ca. All the latest streams, videos and downloads can be found in our Click Hear section.
There has been a bit of a buzz over the Beastie Boys' new star-studded short film Fight for Your Right Revisited, to say the least. Now you can catch the entire short online. And while you're at it, you may want to check out a full-album stream of Hot Sauce Committee Part Two.
Meanwhile, if you missed that Record Store Day twelve-inch from Radiohead and don't feel like waiting for the North American release, you can stream both "The Butcher" and "Supercollider" now. And who else but the Flaming Lips would try to blow minds by putting out new music inside a life-sized gummy skull. That alone should give you the incentive to check the band's newest release.
Next, the Paper Bag Records roster has done exactly what you would expect it to do on a collaborative project -- cover a Madonna album in its entirety. Check out Rural Alberta Advantage, Born Ruffians, Young Galaxy and more take on the classic True Blue songs.
If you find yourself playing Portal 2 because your boyfriend/girlfriend broke up with you, the National are on your side. You can listen to "Exile Vilify," a typically dour ballad that the band have given to the game. Lastly, Torontonian singer-songwriter Lou Canon has managed to find enough outside her teaching schedule to put together her debut album, complete with a cover of the Cure's "Close to Me," which is available for your listening pleasure.
Head over to the Exclaim! Click Hear section for all of these streams, downloads and videos, plus many more.
