Los Angeles quartet Fell Runner released a new video for their "Cobwebs" song this week. The ambient, poignant track is paired with some beautiful, stop-motion animation from visual artist Zack El-Magharbel. Fell Runner "Cobwebs" was originally released on the band's eponymous debut album in August 2015. You can stream that album below and purchase it here.
We knew a new Radiohead album would be out sometime this year. And with the band recently deleting social media content, clearing their website and sending cryptic leaflets to fans, many expected that a new Radiohead album would appear this week. While the full album hasn't arrived, Radiohead has shared the first single, "Burn The Witch", and an accompanying video.
Radiohead "Burn The Witch" features a stop motion animated video centered on an idyllic, pastoral town that's preparing to--*shocker*--burn a witch. Rather than write all about it, I'd highly recommend watching instead. It's one of the more captivating music videos of the year. Chris Hopewell handled direction duties for the video. Musically, "Burn The Witch" features swelling, upbeat strings, Thom's trademark airy falsetto and arguably provides a more accesible version of the direction The King of Limbs went in.
On May 27th, English producer Gold Panda will release his new album Good Luck and Do Your Best. The new LP follows-up 2013's Half of Where You Live, arrives on City Slang and is available for pre-order now. Gold Panda previously shared album track "Time Eater" and has now dropped "Pink & Green" with any accompanying video.
The Gold Panda "Pink & Green" video follows what we've heard about Good Luck and Do Your Best being inspired by several trips to Japan. The video shares footage from Gold Panda and video director Laura Lewis's trip to Japan.

Band of Horses will return with their fifth studio album and first since 2012's Mirage Rock this June. The Charleston, South Carolina band announced Why Are You OK will arrive this summer on Interscope. The Band of Horses camp also shared that lead songwriter forwent his typical pattern of retreating to a remote location to write albums and penned Why Are You OK at his own home.
The album arrives with lead single "Casual Party" and several dozen tour dates. Band of Horses released a video for "Casual Party" featuring karaoke-style lyrics over VHS quality nature scenes. Watch that below and read our interview with Band of Horses here.
Whitney's "No Woman" seemingly came out of nowhere earlier this year and quickly became one of 2016's best tracks. Whitney is composed of Max Kakacek (formerly of Smith Westerns) and Julien Ehrlich (formerly of Unknown Mortal Orchestra). On the heels of their "No Woman" success, Whitney have announced their debut full length Light Upon The Lake.
The new album drops June 3rd via Secretly Canadian. You can pre-order it right here. With the album announcement, Whitney have shared tour dates with UMO and Wild Nothing as well as a new single. Whitney "Golden Days" follows the breezy, alt-country feels of "No Woman". You can both stream and watch the new video for Whitney "No Woman" below.
