Sigur Rós - Ný Batterí (Live) →
Another track off of Sigur Ros’ new live release Inni was released today, and as always its pretty gorgeous, even for a live mix. No official date has been set for the release, but it is available for order over on Sigur Ros website. It’s a pretty hefty price of $79 bucks, but it comes with a bunch of cool stuff including an “artefact” from the live show itself. For the...
Feist - Metals ALBUM STREAM →
Feist announced a few months back that she was going to be releasing a new full length at the beginning of October, and we got to catch a glimpse with the single “How Come You Never Go There”. The single was the perfect display of Feist’s talent, both instrumentally and vocally. Her new album Metals is now available for streaming for only the exchange of an email address...
Wavves - Life Sux EP ALBUM REVIEW →
Wavves, ever since his emergence back around 2007 has slowly been changing the surf/beach rock and indie scene with his low-fi production style and “fuzzy” string sounds. He has almost always displayed pretty positive vibes on his releases, with many references to weed, the beach and not doing a whole lot of anything. While simple, these references/influences tied with Nathan’s catchy rhythms...
Coolrunnings - The Fool →
Knoxville’s Coolrunnings just posted a new mp3 over on the Dracula Horse soundcloud page, and has made it available for free download. The track has a slightly hazier feel than the stuff Coolrunnings released earlier this year on their Dracula is Only the Beginning full length, but its still as catchy as ever. Give the new mp3 a listen or download below, and be sure to give Dracula is...
Fleet Foxes performing the single “Grown Ocean” off of their amazing 2011 release Helplessness Blues. Helplessness Blues came out earlier this year on Sub Pop
Midnight Conspiracy - Discord →
I can’t say that I’ve ever considered bass-heavy, dub and club beats to be my favourite sounds in music, but this new track by Chicago’s Midnight Conspiracy has an undeniable groove to it. It hits hard too, but not hard enough that your ears are ringing by the end of it. The beats on this track are also pretty heavy as well, making for one hell of a club track, even if thats...
Gold Panda - An Iceberg Hurled Northward Through... →
A fresh track from UK Producer Gold Panda, one of our favourite “beat music” artists here at the beat farm. The new track “An Iceberg Hurled Northward Through Clouds”, although its song name is long, it pretty acurately describes the vibes in the song. It starts very gently, with the sounds of chimes in the wind and slowly builds into a quick paced, but gentle beat that...
Yuck - Soothe Me →
Yuck, and the people over at Fat Possum announced a little while ago that they would be releasing a deluxe, double-disc version of Yuck’s great self titled debut. The deluxe version is to feature a couple new songs as well as B-sides to many of the groups singles that were released throughout the year. We got to hear one of the tracks a couple weeks back “Cousin Corona”, which...
Atlas Sound - Modern Aquatic Nightsongs →
Another new track off of Atlas Sound’s new EP, this one is just as soft and dreamy as the last. The projects only member, Bradford Cox is only growing on his previous material from last year, and it seems like Parallax will not disappoint one bit. Check out the song below.
Young Galaxies recently released this new video for the song “Peripheral Visionaries” off of their new LP “Shapeshifting”, which is available over at Paper Bag Records. The video is actually the second part of a two part music video. Check out the first installment for the song “We Have Everything” below, which came out back when the album was released.
Com Truise released his newest effort Galactic Melt earlier this year, which made it’s way onto my Top 20 Albums of 2011 (so far) list. 10lb Pictures just released the official video for the track “Brokendate” today, and it’s definately an interesting one. Check it out.

Album Streams: Sleep∞Over, Dum Dum Girls, Youth... →
Generally we just post single mp3’s on the beat farm, but more and more artists are releasing their albums for stream before the actual release.

First off is Stefanie Franciotti’s solo...
M83 - Midnight City EP →
M83’s Anthony Gonzales released the single “Midnight City” from his upcoming double album about a month ago, and it had everyone stoked for the release. The full album has found its way onto the internet, and I for one am not dissapointed with the new album at all. Stereogum even made a premature evaluation of the album too. Considering that, not many of the tracks on the new...
Another fresh video, this time for the album opener “Honey Bunny” off of Girls newest full length Father, Son and Holy Ghost, which is now out on True Panther Sounds

Aeroplane - Big Boys Don't Cry →
A fresh track from Italian-Belgian producer/DJ Aeroplane. He definitely turned us onto his stuff last year with his great release “We Can’t Fly” and has just dropped a new track on to his Soundcloud page titled “Big Boys Don’t Cry”. “Big Boys Don’t Cry” is just as big a jam as any song off “We Can’t Fly”, so lets hope that...
Twin Shadow - Changes →
Twin Shadow is the solo project of retro indie rocker George Lewis Jr, and he definitely turned us onto his stuff last year with his groovy debut “Forget”. Since then, he has been playing shows almost non stop from festivals, to a performance on Jimmy Fallon, and yet he still found the time to write a great new track which he titled “Changes”. The song starts off with an...
Neon Indian - Era Extraña Album Review →
Since this is the first of hopefully many mini-reviews here on the beat farm, I’ll start with an intro on how our reviews will work. These reviews aren’t for tearing an album apart into pieces, and then picking out every little inconsistency. They are reviews to give any new listeners an idea about what they’re about to listen to. Each review will be given a rating, but this rating is simply the...
Battles great new video for the song “My Machines ft. Gary Numan”
R.I.P. DJ Mehdi →
We just recieved news via e mail of the tragic loss of Ed Banger Records DJ Mehdi. Not a lot has been released regarding his death, but Bob Cornelius Rifo of Bloody Beetroots and other electronic artists have tweeted to confirm. Regardless of how Mehdi lost his life, any tragedy like this is felt by the whole world. Even if you weren’t a listener of DJ Mehdi’s stuff, he did a lot to...
