If that's not enough, make sure you head over to our Music/Video section to get your fill on all the latest releases.
British Columbian moody rock outfit We Are the City's next album Violent won't be here until June, but they gave us a sample of the "noise soaked crescendos and delicate pop melodies" we can expect on the upcoming release with an early look at "Baptism," a five-minute track with smooth synths and bass fuzz.
On April 30, the Good Family's self-titled album will finally reach its release date. The eight members of the extended family have come together from separate projects with the Good Brothers and the Sadies to create ten folksy tracks, and you can listen to them all right now.
Over the past few weeks, a number of tracks from The Great Gatsby's star-studded soundtrack have begun to surface regardless of its May 7 release date. Last week, we got an early look at Lana Del Rey's booming and symphonic addition to the film with her track "Young & Beautiful."
Electro art-rockers Valleys' upcoming album Are You Going To Stand There And Talk Weird All Night features "cinematic synths and mope-pop vocals" that were inspired by Valleys' personal losses during the lead-up to the album.
Odd Future's Hodgy Beats, Left Brain and Domo Genesis have been working together as MellowHigh, and now you can see these juicebox and joint rappers in their new video for "Troublesome2013."
Last on this week's roundup are Deerhunter who are looking down the barrel of a May 7 release date for their latest effort, Monomania. Here's your chance to get an early look at the entire album, on which you'll notice a shift from the atmospheric to harder "scrappy rock songs."
