Mac DeMarco has debuted another new song from his upcoming mini-LP, Another One, which is due Aug. 7 on Captured Tracks.

"I've Been Waiting for Her" has all the elements we've come to love over the past couple of DeMarco releases—shiney, sticky guitars playing quick and summery riffs and wavering in and out of tune over DeMarco's slacker-romantic drawl, coming together seemingly effortlessly yet perfectly executed. It's the second song we've heard from the release after "The Way You'd Love Her."

Stream the song below. Another One is available for preorder on LP and CD now. DeMarco will play at S.F.'s Outside Lands festival Aug. 8 and L.A.'s FYF Fest Aug. 23. Two-day tickets to FYF Fest are still available at Amoeba Hollywood while supplies last.

Interpol Release "Ancient Ways" From Upcoming Album 'El Pintor'

Posted by Billy Gil, August 18, 2014 11:00am | Post a Comment

interpol el pintor lpInterpol has just released a new song, and it's a stunner. Over oceanic guitars, Paul Banks croons "fuck the ancient ways." Perhaps appropriately, the band pummels through a classic Interpol arrangement like it's the first time.

With a song like "Ancient Ways," we have high hopes El Pintor will be the return to form Interpol fans have been clammoring for. You can preorder the album now on LP. It's out Sept. 9 on Matador.

Hear the song below. Interpol will be at FYF Fest this Saturday.
