Whenever we add music for voting on 97x - whether it's cool new stuff or inspired by the "Suggest A Song" space on the app/website - we will let you know through our New Music Blog!
Some of today's songs were suggested through the app, but they're also all cool new music. So I thought I'd post a video with each so you can check them out. Let us know what you think!
Deftones shared another song off their excellent recent album Koi No Yokan. Check out "Swerve City" below.
When the music blogosphere really started going nuts hyping up new bands several years back, Vampire Weekend was one of the first success stories. The NYC four-piece took some signifcant time off between Contra and the forthcoming Modern Vampires Of The City out May 7 May 14. So much VW material takes influence from world music, but "Diane Young" sounds vintage enough to have been an Elvis tune.
The new Depeche Mode album Delta Machine drops tomorrow. "Heaven" must have been a teaser track because they've quickly followed up with "Soothe My Soul". Here's the long-running band performing the song live on The Late Show With David Letterman a few weeks ago.
The very prolific Portland-by-way-of-Wasilla, Alaska indie group Portugal. The Man ready their seventh album in as many years with Evil Friends set for release on June 4. Here's the title track.
Purity Ring are a Canadian electronica duo whose debut album made a pretty big critical splash last year. Pitchfork, Stereogum and NME all ranked Shrines in their year-end top 50 lists. What do you think of "Fineshrine"?
Tame Impala are another critical/blogosphere favorite from 2012. "Elephant" is a funky, psychedelic stomper from their acclaimed second full-length Lonerism. Both their releases earned Album Of The Year honors from Rolling Stone and the J Awards, Australia's equivalent to the Grammys.
Migrant will mark the fifth album by progressive Providence four-piece The Dear Hunter once it's released next Tuesday. Casey Crescenzo started the project as an outlet for music he wrote that didn't quite fit his other band The Receiving End Of Sirens. Here's "Whisper".
The Unlikely Candidates are a folk/pop five-piece out of Texas. "Follow My Feet" almost sounds as if Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco sang a track for Mumford And Sons. The song is not currently on YouTube but you can check it out on their Facebook page. Discuss.
