Jamie xx Day

You might’ve caught this on my Facebook or Twitter feed earlier today, but if not, here is a full rip of Jamie xx‘s (still) forthcoming single “Far Nearer”. This kid’s got some jams.

You can also check out his sweet mix for BBC 6, which includes this tune and a lot of other great stuff, including a track from San Diego’s MRR-ADM. Stream that at the BBC site or download an mp3 rip here. Oh, and Disco Naïveté has another new Jamie xx song, “Beat For”, streaming at their site.

Fleet Foxes: “Helplessness Blues”

I almost forgot the second Fleet Foxes record was right around the corner. Unsurprisingly, it sounds like another perfect channeling and reimagining of Americana and baroque folk music. Stream or download the title track, “Helplessness Blues”, up above and look for the album to drop on May 3rd via Sub Pop Records.

(Psssst, there’s also a pre-sale going on for their upcoming tour over at their website.)
