Published Nov 18, 2013As we get closer and closer to the year's end, more and more music is popping up to grab attention before the "best of" lists start to surface. Last week brought one particularly huge surprise, so if you were too occupied with the new Death Grips album, let us fill you in on the albums, singles and music videos you might have missed. Read our Music/Video roundup from the past week below, then keep an eye on Exclaim!'s Music/Video daily for even more great music.
First up, Hamilton, ON hardcore outfit Skynet are set to release their appropriately-titled EP The Wild tomorrow. Until then, you can stream the aggressive record in full — just try not to injure yourself head-banging. Then, calm down again by letting the simple piano and pristine vocals of STACEY's "Worst Part" wash over you.
Chief Keef waxes trippy as usual in his colourful new video for "All Time." Childish Gambino, on the other hand, has released a slightly NSFW lyric video for "3005" that looks like a steamy video chat with an adult film star.
For folkier fare, listen to beloved multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird's new EP, I Want to See Pulaski at Night. The mostly instrumental offering features intricate plucking and minimalist orchestral structures.
Finally, Kingston, ON rockers the Glorious Sons are gearing up to release their debut EP, Shapeless Art, tomorrow (November 19). You can stream the raw, singalong-worthy rock tracks now.
