Published Jul 29, 2013Monday may signal the start of the workweek, but before your rat race officially begins, relax with our weekly Music/Video roundup. We've taken a look at some of the coolest album streams, music videos and songs currently making the rounds on the Internet, but you can also visit our Music/Video section throughout the week for even more great tunes.
Starting things off is a album stream of Health, the long-awaited full-length from veteran indie-pop troupe the Heavy Blinkers. It's been nearly a decade since the band's last LP, but you can hear the wartime-themed concept album in its entirety before its July 30 release.
Much-maligned rap prodigy Chief Keef waxes poetic about his police woes and staying relevant via two new cuts from his upcoming Almighty Sosa mixtape, while Lana Del Rey complains that pop music is ruining New York's hipster elite in the (surprisingly) un-ironic Lady Gaga diss track "So Legit."
Next, Gentlemen Reg and James Bunton's synth-pop project Light Fires does double duty this week with a video for the Owen Pallet-assisted "Dependent" and a complete album stream of the group's new LP, FACE.
After that, East Coast rock outfits Cousins and Construction & Destruction have teamed up for a bullshit-free, stripped-down 12-inch split, which you can stream in full ahead of tomorrow's (July 30) Noyes Records release, and Calgary-based songstress Samantha Savage Smith leaves us longing for her upcoming sophomore LP with summery album cut "Kids in the Basement."
