Patrick Wolf’s new album Lupercalia is coming out May 30th but here’s the first single which is just as bombastic as Wolf usually is! Really excited for this one.

Fucked Up may not need any introduction if you’ve read any music blogs over the past two years. The Toronto-based group led by the often-shirtless Damian “Pink Eyes” Abraham is releasing their new album David Comes to Life June 7th and they’ve released a track from the album which you can download at this website or below. It looks like they may be releasing premiering four mp3s from the album before its release if the website is to be believe. Either way the concept/musical/rock opera album clocking in at 18 tracks (and 78 minutes) is sure to be grand.

It’s been a minute since I’ve heard anything from Jessica 6, whose members all met while involved in Hercules & Love Affair’s first debut album (Nomi Ruiz sang several tracks on the album). They’ve released a cool sexy new single “White Horse,” which precedes their debut album See the Light which will be out May 24th. Check out the video for the song and a remix from Todd Terry below. They’re also on tour, playing a show at Miami Music week and on the east coast.

3/24 (Thurs): Miami @ Bardot (Ultrafest weekend)
3/28 (Mon): Brooklyn, NY @ Knitting Factory w/Miami Horror
4/8 (Fri): Washington, DC @ U Street Music Hall

Hmm let’s just make it DFA day on T&T why don’t we? The label just upped this Hot Chip remix of Shit Robot’s “Losing My Patience” which happens to feature Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor on vocal duties. Check it out below. It’s a subdued, murky one so beware!
