DOM just dropped their Family of Love EP which is a perfect summer album which is sure to polarize just as many people as Sun Bronzed Greek Gods.  I’ve already posted the amazing ‘Damn’ and after listening to the EP the other clear standout is synth-pop opener ‘Telephone’.  While some people will probably hate the bubble-gum poppy track, ‘Telephone’ is incredibly fun and catchy music to finish off the summer.  I recommend everyone give Family of Love a listen and check out ‘Telephone’ below…

When I listen to Spirit Spine’s shoegazey epic Glossolalia I don’t necessarily think of a ripped shirtless man running on a track.  However, somehow the video’s melancholy attitude makes it work with the song.  The video looks incredibly professional and is something undeniably memorable.

A while back The Weeknd announced they were planning on releasing two more mixtapes this year after their already spectacular House of BalloonsYesterday the guys dropped the album art for Thursday so people were speculating that Thursday would drop today.  While all signs point to the mixtape dropping soon it looks like we’ll still have to wait a little longer for some melancholy r&b that the blogosphere can’t get enough of.  Stream ‘Rolling Stone’ below which is rumored to appear on the mixtape…

Update: Turns out my “little longer” estimation was actually literally minutes as the band just leaked the mixtape.  Download it at the band’s website which has been flooded with so many views that it’s been down.
