Long, long ago in 2012, Beck teased most of the world with Song Reader, an album only available through live performance. 
Stew no more, hungry masses, for now this masterpiece has been recorded, and oh boy was it ever worth the wait. The record features a truly panty-dropping roster of performers, including the likes of Fun., Jeff Tweedy, Lord Huron, Jack White, Juanes, Laura Marling, Jarvis Cocker, Loudon Wainwright III, and Gabriel Kahane. It’s out today on Capitol Records, and available via all the usual outlets.

It’s a great day for electronic music, kids. The ever thrilling Flying Lotus has announced the 10/7 release of his fifth studio album, You’re Dead! on Warp Records, as well as a pretty extensive North American tour. The NYC show is at Terminal 5 on 10/15, and I will be there with glowsticks on.

IN ADDITION, SBTRKT has announced the release of his sophomore album, Wonder Where We Land. No release date yet, but the first single features Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, and will be premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 program later today. Above is a teaser for the album.
