Surprise: The Raveonettes are back with a new album, and it’s out right now. It’s called Pe’ahi, and it’s out via Beat Dies.

The album was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen, who produced M83’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming and has performed with Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Air, and many others. Pe’ahi is the name of a big wave surfing spot in Maui.

Sune Rose Wagner, the songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist of the duo said of “Endless Sleeper”:

“…it’s about a horrific near-drowning experience I had in Hawaii some years ago. It’s about taking risks in order to exist. The song features a lot of recurring musical ideas of Pe’ahi such as Old Skool breakbeats, exaggerated dynamics, unconventional song structures, staccato guitar picking, intense layered vocals, etc…”

If you missed it a few weeks ago we premiered the video for “Innocence" from the Toronto based duo composed of middle-school sweethearts Austin Garrick and Bronwyn Griffin, Electric Youth

Garrick and Griffin have just announced news that their first full length, Innerworld, will be out September 30th via Indiana-based label Secretly Canadian.

Today you can hear “Runaway,” the second track off the album; it’s awash in eighties nostalgia and synthetic listlessness and the single’s cover art—embedded above—was inspired by Polish movie posters from the 1970s.

Since foundation in 2001, the band The Hidden Cameras has built a strong reputation around the globe but particularly between Toronto and Berlin—Toronto because that’s where they’re from and Berlin, because that’s where singer Joel Gibbs lives right now. Whereever Gibbs rests his head, surely he’ll have to hide from the paparazzi if the Hidden Cameras keep releasing hits like their danceable new single “Carpe Jugular”.
