Beck — Up All Night

Beck - Up All Night

Beck’s new album, titled Colors, hits shelves and streaming services on October 13, and the pop songwriter is doing as much as he can to build hype for the release. That includes putting out this awesome video accompaniment to new single Up All Night, in which a teenage girl slowly transforms into a knight and raids a party. The song itself is a great example of contemporary Beck fare, with various groovy drum licks , danceable piano-driven hooks, and a shocking amount of musical depth for what is ostensibly a dance floor single.

Twin Peaks — Come For Me

Fans have gotten a summer full of excellent pick-me-ups from indie rockers Twin Peaks, thanks to the band’s two-tune-per-month Sweet 17 Singles series. The latest in that line of excellent music is Come For Me, a beautiful and upbeat song with clear Velvet Underground influences — and a massive number of guitar and vocal layers to chomp on.

Bermuda Triangle — Rosey

Alabama Shakes lead singer Brittney Howard has been hard at work with her new side project, Bermuda Triangle, hitting the stage and the studio to bring fans of her gorgeous songwriting a new musical perspective. Rosey presents as a modern take on a classic country ballad, with beautiful guitar tones and pitch-perfect harmonies joined by a punchy drum machine on the chorus.

Rostam — Half Light (Featuring Kelly Zultrau)

Rostam - "Half-Light" ft. Kelly Zutrau of 'Wet' (Lyric Video)

The latest single from ex-Vampire Weekend member Rostam starts as a simple piano-and-vocal ballad that eventually adds synthesizers, bass, and drums to form a powerful tune perfect for late-summer evenings. Perhaps the most interesting part of the new jam comes in the form of a breakdown three-quarters of the way through, when Rostam’s own voice layers upon itself before vocalist Kelly Zultrau (of indie-pop band Wet) gets a final refrain.

Trombone Shorty — It Ain’t No Use

Troy Andrews, aka Trombone Shorty, leads his all-star New Orleans band through a powerful version of his recent single It Ain’t No Use, recorded live at California’s KCRW radio. A hyper-groovy track with a shredding guitar solo in the middle, this is exactly the kind of song that was made to raise your spirits.

That’s it for now, but tune in next week for more songs to stream, and check out the playlist loaded with our recent selections below:

Person listening to spatial audio using Apple AirPods Max headphones.

At WWDC 2021 (Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference), Apple officially added support for spatial audio with Dolby Atmos Music for Apple Music. It quickly became a popular format among consumers, too: Apple estimates that by February 2022, playback of spatial audio tracks had quadrupled from just a few months prior as people experimented with the format. But what exactly is spatial audio? How is it different from (or the same as) Dolby Atmos? And what kind of audio equipment do you need to listen to it?

There's a lot of ground to cover, and some of it is a bit technical, but we're going to break it all down in easy-to-understand terms. You'll be a spatial audio expert in minutes, and you'll know exactly how to access this growing trend in movie and music streaming.

How to convert your vinyl to a digital format
Rebirth of cool: Is vinyl ready for a second wind, or just a fad?

It doesn't matter one bit if your vinyl collection consists of just a single milk crate or if it fills several Ikea Kallax shelves and is slowly taking over your home — we can all agree that there's just something about vinyl.

Maybe it's the warm, uncompressed sound spinning off a solid turntable, or the feel of holding a physical piece of art in your hands while the record spins — it's a special experience that has regained much of its glory in a world dominated by digital streaming. The problem is, records are fragile, and crates full of them don't fit in your back pocket.
