Scottish indie-rockers Frightened Rabbit have a single called “Swim Until You Can’t See Land” that’s been floating around the internet over the last few days. This tune is being offered as a sneak preview of the band’s upcoming album to be released in March of 2010. The band’s label, Fat Cat Records, is also streaming new track “Fun Stuff”. We like ’em both.

Usually on the weekends I browse the net for new tunes to bring your way, and I found this little gem from Phantogram to share with you. It was the killer bass groove that initially got me hooked here, but after awhile, the fuzzy female vocals just kept getting stuck in my head. You’re sure to dig on this track, and we’ll keep you posted on more news from the group.

So how does a band take a break for close to 30 years and then make a comeback with a tour and brand new album? Who knows. I guess people really did like the 60s that much. If you’re one of those 60s lovers, head down to La Zona Rosa on Sunday night for a set by Brazilian psych-rockers Os Mutantes. Opening support will provided by Deleon.

Not sure how I missed this last month, but one of my favorite acts, American Princes, have tossed up some new songs on their site, which leads us to anticipate a new album coming out sometime in the near future. If it’s anything like Other People, I think we’ll all be quite pleased with the output. Here’s one of those new tunes to get you excited, but be sure to check out the other one on their site as well.

So I was stalking The Drums earlier today, and I came across another band that I think I could love equally as much, if not more so. They sound sort of similar, but instead of that whole surf affiliation Horse Shoes are rocking an 80s club sound. You can catch this song now off their Imperial School EP. And if you find a better picture of this band, let me know, as there’s just about as much info on this group as there are photos.

So hopefully you are familiar with the man known as Kid Koala and his famous work with Del tha Funkee Homosapien and Dan the Automator on the Deltron 3030 project. No? Go listen to it now. When you’re gone, get back with me and check out this new project from Kid Koala called The Slew. You’ll notice some familar head bobbing beats. The project has a new album out called 100% and you can download it all for free on their website. We’ve got the single track “You Turn me Cold”. Stop saying we don’t post about hip hop.
