Listen: The New Garbage Songs ‘Girls Talk Shit’ & ‘Time Will Destroy Everything’ Have Leaked To The Internets

Limited Edition
The Record Store Day 2014 Single

Over the weekend, Garbage and Brody Dalle released a limited edition 10″ single that features new songs titled Girls Talk Shit and Time Will Destroy Everything. The single is limited to only 4000 copies worldwide so it was very difficult for every Garbage fan in the world to get a copy of the single and it is unknown of the songs will be released officially in any other format (eg. digital or album release). A music video for Girls Talk Shit is on the way but in the mean time, an industrious fan has uploaded video of the vinyl single being played so that fans who could not get a copy of the single can hear the songs. The video is pretty lo-fi but at least you do get to hear the songs in full (along with a chirping bird in the background). You will also note that the record is being played on the Peanuts Record Store Day Turntable that was also released over the weekend. You can hear Girls Talk Shit in the video above and Time Will Destroy Everything in the video below. Enjoy. UPDATE: The songs have been removed from You Tube but you can hear Girls Talk Shit on Soundcloud HERE (thanks Emmanuel). More »

First Listen: Kylie Minogue’s Record Store Day 2014 Single ‘Golden Boy’ Hits The Internets

Her Single of the YEAR!
"Now I'm bangin' on your door"

In honor of Record Store Day 2014, Kylie Minogue has released a limited edition 7″ single for a new track titled Golden Boy. Unfortunately, the single is only available internationally but thanks to the glory of the Internets, we can hear the song in the embed above. The song, quite honestly, is the best single she’s released in a very long time. It’s a shame that this song is only being released in this limited format because it’s really a spectacular song. Have a listen, see what you think. Don’t you wish Golden Boy was included on her new album Kiss Me Once?

First Listen: Prince Releases A NEW Song Titled ‘The Breakdown’

It's a slow jam

Records to release a NEW album as well as a bunch of old, previously unreleased material from his treasure trove of recordings from the 80′s, Prince has unleashed upon the world a new single titled The Breakdown. As I understand it, Prince performed this song in concert last Fall but just before midnight last night he released it officially for sale on iTunes. Have a listen of this new Prince track below.

First Listen: Lana Del Rey Releases Her New Single ‘West Coast’

"Down on the West Coast, they got a sayin' ..."
"... If you're not drinkin', you're not playin'"

Last week Lana Del Rey announced the title of her new single, West Coast, and revealed that the song would debut in full today. Over the weekend, tho, LDR previewed the song during a concert performance in Las Vegas and then performed the track in full at Coachella. Today, tho, the song has been officially unleashed upon the world. Click the video embed above to hear West Coast, the first single from Lana‘s upcoming new album Ultraviolence. The song has a bit of a different vibe for a LDR song. If this first single is any indication, it would appear that Lana‘s sound has evolved a bit … which is very nice. Have a listen, see what you think. A new era of Lana Del Rey music is now upon us.

First Listen: Miley Cyrus Sings ‘A Day In The Life’ By The Beatles

"If ya love The Beatles and John Lennon you gonna love this!!!"

Last month we learned that Miley Cyrus teamed up with Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips to record a cover of the Beatles song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (while she was “high as f*ck”, mind you) and today we learn that she has recorded at least one other Beatles song, too. Coyne is working on a re-imagining of the Beatles album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club band made up of cover recordings and it would appear that Miley is featured on at least two songs from that album.
