We all know Beck, the dude needs no introduction. I first saw him on MTV's 120 Minutes and he looked like some kid with his guitar back then.... When MTV started playing "Loser", we knew that song would be a massive hit for him.
Anyway, I have actually seen Beck live at Coachella in 1999. Unfortunately, by the nature of these large music festival, he looked like a tiny figure on stage and it was just not a good experience for me. I would love to see him in a more intimate venue, but alas those days are long gone.
Beck's new album Morning Phase came out this week (Tuesday, February 25th), and already critics like NPR is calling it basically Sea Change part two.
You can currently hear the "Waking Light" on npr.org.
Beck is returning to Coachella this year.

Maybe I'm just a very judgmental person, but whenever I see weird punctuations / capitalizations / poorly misspelled words, I just think the band is very young. Of course, this is coming from someone who uses ♥ as a verb....
Anyway, this Australian quartet debut in 2008 and by 2011 was nominated an ARIA Award for their debut album And So We Destroyed Everything.
sleepmakeswaves new album in today already walks tomorrow will be out this April 8, 2014, on Monotreme Records. Please note this album was originally released in 2012 by another record label.

Speaking of lowercase, wake up is a four piece rock band from Lake Worth, Florida.
Their debut 7", 'Forever Home', is said to be a three song collection (a fourth song, "Again", is available but only as a digital bonus track) with homage and styling of 90s rock, but without the whole 'grunge revival' thing. The songs are said to be more in tuned with Stephen Malkumus (Pavement) or Doug Martsch (Built to Spill). So... slacker rock it is...
The 7" is coming out March 11, 2014.
