The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - "Simple and Sure"

It's been a while since we last heard from Brooklyn's jangle-pop band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. The dreamy-shoegaze group last delivered with 2011's Belong and now they're set to follow it up with Days of Abandon, out on April 22. Today, they shared the new track "Simple and Sure" which is a sunny pop song more in-line with 90s era college-rock instead of the fuzz induced guitars you may have been expecting. Either way, it seems like a great spring time jam!

Haim - "XO"

Following last year's amazing Days Are Gone, Haim are still blazing along their path to stardom. They recently dropped by BBC Radio 1 to cover what else, but Beyoncé's stunning "XO" and if that's not enough, they also shared a new video for "If I Could Change Your Mind". Ladies, you're flawless.

Woods - "Moving to the Left"

Woods (the Brooklyn folk-rockers, not, you know... nature) took last year off for the first time since 2009, but are now set to return on April 15 with a new album called With Light and With Love. Today they shared the track "Moving to the Left" which finds them focusing on beautiful melodies and steady drumming rather than their sometimes pysch-soaked rhythms, but is with no doubt a solid Woods jam.
