While not retiring from making music, electronic duo Röyksopp have announced that this month's fittingly titled The Inevitable End will be the final traditional full-length record they release. A statement notes that the record marks a shift to "darker subject matter, with emphasis on the lyrical content," resulting in the duo's most personal release to date. Dark synths and menacing vocals also contribute to the sinister sonics. Stream it at the link above.
Inspired by the glory days of AM radio, Good Boys have put their brand of feel-good, catchy pop-rock on display in a new clip for "I'm Not Pretending," set at an old-school cocktail party. Elsewhere, London, ON four-piece Big Lonely have been inspired by a great Canadian pastime. Their latest video for "Dirty Clocks" is a true underdog story set amidst a professional table hockey tournament.
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead began tracking their ninth studio record earlier this year, and now IX is finally available to stream. The Austin group's latest effort is incredibly ambitious, with the group explaining in a statement that "…this transmission is here to transport and ruin you." While many will recognize the previously released "The Ghost Within" and the distorted "A Million Random Digits," listeners will no doubt be captivated by the anthemic "The Doomsday Book" and string-laden "The Dragonfly Queen."
Finally, Vancouver psych-rockers Spoon River have unleashed a crazy new clip for their track "In the Parking Lots of the Swamp Museum." Amidst a ton of colour and kaleidoscopic video effects, the video sees a giant swamp monster come to life, steal a baby and take off on a motorcycle. As if things couldn't get any stranger, the band follow the creature in hot pursuit on a flying keyboard.
