Since I've been poorly and house bound for a lot of this week I have had plenty of time to catch up with new album streams and promo videos,so I thought I'd collect a few of them on this page.
First up is the long awaited double album from Chromatics, which was released this week via iTunes, with a vinyl release to follow I believe. The Portland band have taken the bold step of streaming the whole 90 minute album from soundcloud and it can be heard on the embed below.

Next up is a new video from Francois and the Atlas Mountains. The song is 'City Kiss' from the recent album 'E Volo Love' and the video features some clever shots and Francois falls asleep on public transport a lot.

Another fine video, this time for the new Lee Ranaldo song 'Angles', it is directed by his wife, the artist Leah Singer. I loved this one, the reverse shots near the end are from cameras on helium balloons apparently.

Julia Holter has been getting lots of praise for her new album 'Extasis'. This video for 'Moni mon Amie' is delightfully unusual, and suits her music very well.

Finally, from the Grinderman remix album (2 RMX) here is a stream of Silver Alert's remix of 'Evil' featuring Matt Berninger of the National. This has been around since early February but apparently it is being specially issued as a limited 12" for Record Store Day.
