Steady/Steady have been working on some music with Michael Govaere (ex-Every Avenue). We are premiering a new song called "Pseudo" - give it a listen in the replies. The song is built up by a constant kick-drum, and the chorus sounds more like a William Beckett solo track than the southern rock tinge of Every Avenue, equipped with "oh-oh-oh's" and everything. It was mastered by John Naclerio at Nada Recording Studio (Brand New, My Chemical Romance). If you like what you hear, be on the look out for the band's debut EP in April.

"Stay weird, stay different." Graham Moore's candid acceptance speech for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Imitation Game was one of the most talked about moments of the Oscars, as he brought to light the subject of suicide. Similarly, a compilation titled To Show That You're Still Here will be released tomorrow to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Head to the replies to hear the recently-disbanded Secret Plot to Destroy the Entire Universe's inclusion, "Untitled #6." It reminds me of something from Pianos Become the Teeth's Keep You. You can pre-order the effort for only $5 to support the cause. The comp also features The Hotelier, Banquets, Beach Slang and more.

Scarlett Johansson is not a stranger to the music world and now she has formed a group that is "super-pop" with Este Haim (Haim), Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris and Julie Haltigan called The Singles. The first track "Candy" was produced by Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio) and will be released on his Federal Prism label, you can also hear it in the replies.
"The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls," Johansson said in a press release. "I love Grimes. And I love the Bangles. And I love the Go-Go's. I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke."

Toronto-based Cedar Boulevard have recently trekked across North America on tour and are now unveiling their "hard-hitting" self-titled EP. Already critically acclaimed and drawing comparisons to You, Me and Everyone We Know, My Chemical Romance and early era-A Day To Remember crossed with Pierce The Veil instrumentals this is a pop-punk band for those who like theirs to have a real bite. Founded after two members left their lives in Australia to put their all into their music, this is a band who cares passionately about their craft and are ready to cement themselves in the scene. Listen to their brand new self-titled EP, which was released just this week, in the replies.

Head North will release a new EP called Bloodlines on March 24th via Bad Timing Records. We are premiering the first single called "The Planet." The song has a lot of elements that remind me of what I love about bands like Have Mercy. The vocals start off in the spotlight, with only a pallid drumbeat and distant bass, before the chorus lets frontman Brent Martone let his emotion loose - both vocally and lyrically. Fans of Have Mercy's The Earth Pushed Back should really enjoy this one, as it makes it pretty clear why they're on the road together. Give it a listen in the replies to see what I mean, where you'll also find tour dates. If you like what you hear, I'm confident you'll enjoy...

Marika Hackman releases her debut album, We Slept At Last, today and I cannot recommend it enough. After spending some weeks with it, it's my favourite release of the year so far due to its ominous, dark atmosphere and lyricism contrasted by a delicate voice stringing it all together - and if you're a fan of Laura Marling, Warpaint and Chelsea Wolfe you should definitely give it a shot. Hit the replies to stream the album in full.

I guess although Iíve always dealt in fantasy and metaphor when I came to writing, that meant the songs this time were dealing much more in reality. Ceremonials was so fixated on death and water, and the idea of escape or transcendence through death, but the new album became about trying to learn how live, and how to love in the world rather than trying to escape from it. Which is frightening because...

Most of the coverage that has surrounded Heartless Breakers so far on the site has been centered around the fact that it's the new project of former Daytrader member Matt Mascarenas. But while we're premiering their new song "Carbon Copy" today, I'd rather point out that they take cues from early-era Taking Back Sunday while mixing in elements of post-hardcore -- ultimately, it's something completely separate from Daytrader in my mind, and in a good way. The band's debut full-length, The Great Give Back, comes out on March 10th, and if you like "Carbon Copy" in the replies, you can pre-order the album via Animal Style Records.
