London indie folk musician Laura Marling will release her fourth studio album, Once I Was An Eagle, in May. Today, we get a taste of that record with “Where Can I Go?”, a lovely track that starts off melancholic and wistful, exact fingers dancing over an acoustic guitar, only to later be stirred up with a vigorous, bold confidence towards the end. Whether it’s her beautiful, captivating vocals, or the loud, hearty organ, there’s a real commanding and emotional power in Marling’s latest offering and we can’t wait to see what the rest of her LP will sound like.
Being a Top 25 Club from DJ Mag comes at no surprise as Beta Nightclub has been featuring an amazing array of talent this summer, and this weekend is once again no exception.
Being regulars at Beta, we figured we should share their line up with you, in hopes that you’ll come down and rage with us. Also, just like last time, we have arranged for something special.

The new visuals for Beach House’s “Wishes” features one of the most bizarre homecoming pep rallies you’ll probably ever witness. I’m still dazed at the fact that an emotional Ray Wise is the one handling Victoria LeGrand‘s vocals. Directed by Eric Wareheim (one half of Tim & Eric), the stunning video features some strange athletes, dancing cheerleaders, nunchuk-wielding acrobats (as ninjas we have to admire this), inspired fans, blazing fireworks, and finally, a real live horse. If you’re watching this and still haven’t had a chance to check out Beach House’s Bloom, then you’re surely missing out.
Guess who’s back? The sweet indie/folk pop duo She & Him! And they’ve even got a brand new album, Volume 3, out May 7th on Merge Records. The two artists, on their own, do fairly different things — there’s the smokey singer-songwriter M. Ward and the cheery, oddball actress Zooey Deschanel — but together, the pair does pleasant and bouncy, pseudo-sad, retro-sounding music. A prime example is this new cut, “Never Wanted Your Love”: its title looks serious on paper, but hit play and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a reason to frown.
