THE NATIONAL are making an appearance on the Game of Thrones soundtrack.
Hear the in-story song ‘The Rains of Castamere’ below:
San Francisco trio Lemonade’s new record Diver is out now through True Panther / Remote Control.
Diver documents Lemonade operating as a focused unit, one that’s more interested in speaking to your heart than blowing your mind. Traces of the group’s disparate musical interests still populate the album, but make no mistake; Diver is a bold and sensual electronic pop record.
The new album swims ecstatically in every thing from the melodies of early 90s R&B, UK 2-step Garage, Balearic house and NY freestyle to 80s pop-rock nostalgia, wispy new age, boy-band innocence, and synth-driven Euro-trance.

Future of the Left will release their highly anticipated new album The Plot Against Common Sense on 8 June 2012 via Remote Control.
Fronted by Andy Falkous (ex McLusky), Future of the Left continue to expose their sharp wit and well directed vitriol, and have been praised for their unrelenting live shows, packed with ferocious energy and intensity.
Featuring 49.8 minutes of singing, shouting, slinking, smashing and (at times) sobbing, The Plot Against Common Sense follows the release of their 2011 EP Polymers Are Forever.
Recently expanded to a four-piece, initially as a bet, the band originally conceived the record as a Broadway musical based on the recent British phone-hacking scandal but were forced to abandon this idea due to budgetary restrictions. This is not a joke. After writing hundreds of songs, fifteen were recorded and placed into an order deliberately selected to exhibit the full dynamic range of the experience, a gift which will be lost to anybody who regularly utilitises the shuffle function on their mp3 player.
From the upcoming summer of sport (‘Failed Olympic Bid’) to the creative bankruptcy of the movie industry (‘Robocop 4 – Fuck Off Robocop’), urban outfitted riots (‘City of Exploded Children’) and the gigantic rumbling mediocrity of celebrity culture (‘Notes on Achieving Orbit’), The Plot Against Common Sense is a mostly very loud condemnation of many things, some of which are very easy targets indeed.

During his live sets overseas Perfume Genius has been been performing the beautiful (non-album) track, ‘Rusty Chains’.
Mike Hadreas explains ‘Rusty Chains’ is “a song for a man whose lover has died. He remembers a time, before his partner took sick, where everything felt safe and endless. He asks to be taken next, so they can be together again.”
You can now download the song below.
