Watch Part Two of Milo Greene's PV Sessions:
The LA-based indie-rockers wrap their inspiring PV Sessions with "1975"—a tune highlighting rich vocals, warm acoustics, and stunning harmonies.

Sugar Glyder Premieres "Lost in the Woods" Video:

Get Diamond Youth's "Orange" as a Free MP3:
These indie-rockers didn't have to think twice about naming the title-track off their new album, Orange. As guitarist Sam Trapkins told us, "[it] was the working title for the song from the very beginning." Spin the luminous track and grab it for free!

Send Us Your Questions for Silversetin's PV Fan Q&A:
We're bringing hardcore icons Silverstein into our studios on Monday (February 4) and they want to hear from you! Make sure to send us your best questions by Monday morning and we'll pass them along to the band.

Glow Marrow Premiere "Key Waves":
These indie-rockers combine their love of '80s synth beats with their penchant for breezy melodies for a sound that's as eclectic as it is West Coast cool. Spin their new track "Key Waves" and you'll know what mean. 

Midnight Spin Premiere "Lions Run":
These NYC rockers channel inspiration from late-night mind trips in their new video for "Lions Run." If you've ever wondered what a pop-culture obsessed insomniac might visualize at 3AM, watch this and find out.

The Strokes Announce New Album:
Let it be known, the Strokes have confirmed their fifth album, Comedown Machine, is indeed set to release this year. Fans of Reddit's Strokes community have known this info for days, but that's another story. 

Daft Punk To Release New Album:
It's been a long eight years, but the French dance duo are gearing up for the May release of their brand new album. Word on the street is they've been collaborating quite extensively with some noteable artists, so bets are now on as to which ones (if any) will wind up on this effort.
