I’ve hyped Planningtorock’s album W a lot on here, for good reason. Janine’s released a new single for the lush album cut “The Breaks,” and you can stream all the remixes below. Contributors include Fall on Your Sword, Telepathe, Hannah Holland, and Gavin Russom. I love how Fall on Your Sword’s keeps the orchestral elements but beefs ’em up a lot.

Buy the Ep on iTunes.

Joe Goddard is also getting set to release a new solo EP called Gabriel. The EP features contributions from vocalist Valentina and Jesse Rose. The limitied edition 12″ with hand-painted artwork is out August 22nd on Greco Roman/DFA. Here’s the titular song:
