Published Jul 15, 2013We here at Exclaim! know it can be hard to recover from a bad case of the Mondays. Why not start the work week off on the right note by checking out our weekly Music/Video roundup? Below, we've highlighted some of the coolest album streams, songs and music videos currently hitting the Internet, but don't forget to visit our Music/Video section every week for even more new tunes.
Kicking things off is synth-pop songstress Louise Burns, who celebrated the release of her new sophomore LP, The Midnight Mass, on July 9 by giving us some accompanying audio visuals for album cut "Emeralds Shatter." Watch the Gold & Youth band member do her best Stevie Nicks impression in this heavily '80s-inspired affair.
Next, Kingston-based rockers the Glorious Sons give us a taste of their upcoming Southern-fried debut with LP cut "Mama," and sultry-voiced R&B crooner Mayer Hawthorne teams up with rap prodigy Kendrick Lamar for "Crime" before the release of his LP, Where Does This Door Go, tomorrow (July 16).
Sacramento, CA indie-pop outfit Tera Melos bail some kickflips and hang out with a Muppet in their vaguely absurdist "Weird Circles" promo clip, while the new video for Kanye West's "Black Skinhead" leaked a little earlier than he would have liked, though this is not the official version.
Last but not least, Jack White-approved singer-songwriter Brendan Benson has been releasing a song a month in anticipation of his upcoming LP. You can stream his new single, "Red White and Blues," ahead of tomorrow's (July 16) official release.
