Have you been wondering whether Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros could follow the huge success of home? Here’s your answer, and it was posted on the band’s tumblr page. “That’s What’s Up” is an upbeat, country-tinged track that will make you feel…right at home. Knowing how Alex Ebert likes to keep things evolving, I bet the full-length will sound different than the last, but this song is cause for optimism.

Austin band White Denim deliver a silky new tune in the form of the R&B tinged “Get Back to Love”. “Get Back to Love” is the perfect soundtrack for that special time when you find yourself in the “Steely Dan Zone” (you know what we’re talking about).

“All You”, new from L.A.’s, The Cataracts is about to set pop radio on fire. “All You” ticks all the 2012 radio smash boxes and then some (big EDMish chorus, spazed out rapper verse, a cool sample of a recent hit – in this case the also Cataracts-produced “In the Dark” by Dev.) Seriously though, ever thought you’d hear (give Waka a beat, 10 G’s, and a ton of weed and he’ll probably rap over anything) Waka Flocka spit flames on a Kaskade sample? In theory, Waka’s inclusion on a track like this might invite notions of “train wreck” “are you shitting me?” and “ugh” but somehow it totally works! We love it, get with the new jam. (SB)
