Terrible Love (Alternate Version)" - The National

It seems like a music video kind of day doesn’t it? 

"Terrible Love" will be released as a violet coloured 7” and download single on November 22nd. Both the alternate version of ‘Terrible Love’ and B-side ‘You Were A Kindness’ also feature on the expanded edition of High Violet released the same day.

I Know You Now" - Tu Fawning

Portland-based four-piece Tu Fawning recently released this visual accompaniment to my favorite track on their debut record, Hearts on Hold [review]. Filled with more than a days worth of occult imagery, the video is slightly unnerving. You can pick up the record via CdBaby.

Old Fashioned" - Cee Lo Green

The latest single from Cee Lo’s third solo record The Lady Killer is available for download today on iTunes. I was in the minority that disliked the previously released “Fuck You.” I know, crazy right? Well calm down, I’m enjoying the above streaming track much more than anything else I’ve heard thus far. The Lady Killer will be released on November 9th. You can pre-order your copy in various standard and deluxe edition formats here.

Rhythm Of The Rain f. Thee Tom Hardy & Tunji" - Kno

Kno’s (DJ/Producer of CunninLynguists) first solo effort, Death Is Silent, was released last week and I can’t stop listening to it. It’s by far the most cohesive and honest hip hop album that I’ve heard this year.  Kno, as most know, is a fantastic producer, but I didn’t know he could deliver just as hard lyrically. It’s rare that I can listen to a hip hop album without skipping a track and this is one of those albums. The first single from the album can be heard above. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

The physical release will be available 10/26 via QN5, but you can get it digitally at AmazonMP3 here now.

Unrelentless Drag (Mike Slott Remix)" - Shigeto

I’ve got a lot of love for Ghostly International. I mean how can’t you love them after they release stunning records from the likes of Gold Panda, School of Seven Bells, and Mux Mool in the same year? From my inbox comes this little remixed jem of the Shigeto track we brought you a couple weeks ago “Relentless Drag.” And I’d be damned if Mike Slott doesn’t absolutely tear Shigeto’s original vision to pieces.

This week’s New Noise is here. I recommend Bad Books (the Manchester Orchestra/Kevin Devine collaboration), the new Mount EerieHow to Dress Well (read Daniel’s review for a taste), Houses (Kyle’s review), and Mt. Desolation (Cody’s review).

As always, feel free to let us know what you think is good, or what you think we’re missing, in the comments. The complete list of this week’s releases is after the jump.

Tip Of Your Tongue" - Porcelain Raft

Porcelain Raft is an artist who hails from London/Rome, and is a purveyor of expertly crafted dream-pop goodness.  His new 7” drops Nov. 8th via Acephale, and will be limited to 500 physical copies (pressed on some pretty snazzy vinyl.)  He will make his debut in the continental US tomorrow as part of CMJ fest in NYC, and if you are in the area it is surely a show you do not want to miss.  Pre-order your copy of the new 7” here.

"Go Away My Lover" - Elizabeth & The Catapult

Above is the new single by Elizabeth &  The Catapult, and I must say it’s leaps and bounds ahead of their last record. A more desperate sounding vocal effort, thumping beats, and accompanying hand-claps, this song is perfect for this fall season transcending into winter. Listen above and make sure to pre-order the new album  “The Other Side of Zero” on iTunes

All Night, All Night, All Night" - David Vertesi

In an overflowing genre like folk-rock it’s always nice to find an artist that delivers on lyrical authenticity and pop sensibility alone. Enter David Vertesi, a young Canadian songwriter with a knack for just that. Amalgamating the well-worn theme of enduring love with slow-burning ear catching melodies, it’s apparent that the kid knows what he’s doing. “All Night, All Night, All Night” is the lead single from his upcoming record, Cardiography, set to be released October 26th.
