This may be a bit sad bastard for some of you, but I think this is a nice little jam that goes well with the change of the season. Mastermind of Pink Mountaintops, Stephen McBean, is most widely known as the front man for Canadian powerhouse Black Mountain. Call it a side project if you want, the “band” has a new album hitting stores on May 5th via JagJaguwar called Outside Love. Breezy little single “While We Were Dreaming” is bellow for your enjoyment.

One of the best local acts around right now, The Strange Boys, are playing a show at Beerland this Saturday. This should be a pretty nice way to work your way back into some live music after your exhausting week at SXSW. The Austin boys are joined by opening acts Mass Hysteri and The Hex Dispensers. Music starts at 10pm.

One of our favorite blog reads, Aquarium Drunkard, has created a really sweet compilation disc full of some of the great indie acts out of L.A. Not just a compilation, the album features each band’s take on a song from Paul McCartney’s 1971 solo album RAM. The album is free to download, but The Drunkard is suggesting that you say thanks by donating to his favorite charity No More Land Mines. With a compilation full of artists like Parson Red Heads, Earlimart, and Bodies of Water, why not donate a little?
