Published Jan 09, 2012As mid-January approaches, banish the post-holiday blues with the latest songs, videos and album streams over at the Exclaim! Click Hear section.
First up, as John K. Samson gears up to release the highly anticipated Provincial on January 24, check out new track "Letter to Icelandic from the Ninette San" for a taste of what to expect from the Weakerthan frontman's first solo full length.
In other premieres, wrap your ears around Rae Spoon's new dance-floor-friendly album I Can't Keep All of Our Secrets, streaming all week here at Exclaim.ca. Crafted with a little help from Alex Decoupigny and Lynne T (aka Fruity Frankie of Lesbians on Ecstasy), the LP officially drops tomorrow (January 10).
Next up, take a listen to two new songs from Radiohead's Thom Yorke. The almost entirely instrumental "Stuck Together" and "Twist" recently surfaced on YouTube following their premiere as runway music for clothing line Rag & Bone. And from the catwalk to the clink, check out troubled rapper T.I.'s new mixtape Fuck Da City Up. Available as a free download, the album features a ton of guest appearances from the likes of Dr. Dre, Young Jeezy, Pusha T and B.O.B.
As for videos, we have the generally mild-mannered Feist performing a rendition of Guns N' Roses' "November Rain" (and pummelling a piñata) at a recent live show in Mexico City. In addition, take a gander at Sharon Van Etten's performance of new track "Serpents" on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. "Serpents" is taken from Van Etten's upcoming LP Tramp, out February 7.
