new bon iver

Here’s the new track “Calgary” from Bon Iver’s upcoming eponymous album due on June 21. The first couple seconds seriously gave off the vibe like you’re about to hear a cover of Foreigner’s “I Want To Know What Love Is,” until Bon Iver’s trademark falsetto kicks in and you get an idea of how much the band has expanded its sound.

New Junior Boys!

Electropop duo Junior Boys recently posted their latest track “Banana Ripple” to their website to herald the release of their next album It’s All True due on June 14, 2011.  “Banana Ripple” is uptempo and danceable, clocks in with a lengthy 9:15 runtime yet hooks you right from the start.  I loved 2006’s So This is Goodbye, but this is a welcome contrast to Junior Boys’ previous works, which were rewarding if you were patient enough.
