bsides-logo-cassette-repeatTunes tunes tunes! Our Tunes for Tuesday on our Instagram story this week puts the spotlight on new music that’s been highly anticipated and have been ON-REPEAT here at B-Sides. 2012 was when we last got new material from The Shins with their album, Port of Morrow. A one-off single, “Dead Alive” was released last week and as lead singer/songwriter James Mercer stated, it’s the band’s “Halloween gift while you wait for the album”, in reference to their forthcoming album slated to be released in 2017. A new, yet-untitled album is also in the works for Charli XCX, who just released the track, “After the Afterparty”, which features Lil Yachty. While The Strokes are working on their next album, guitarist Nick Valensi has branched out with a new band, CRX, who just released their debut album, New Skin. Check out the track “Ways to Fake It” and the other songs we have on repeat!
