Bay Area black metal outfit Deafheaven are streaming their sophomore album, Sunbather, a full three weeks ahead of its release date (June 11th via Deathwish Inc.) Take a listen now at Pitchfork.
The follow-up to 2011′s excellent Road To Judas, the seven-track effort was recorded and engineered by Jack Shirley (Funeral Diner, Comadre). According to a press release, the band use the album to explore ”the profound sadness found in the quest for one’s personal perfection, serving as an artistic lucid dream of warmth despite the stinging pain of life’s cruel idealism.” It also marks the recorded debut of new percussionist Daniel Tracy.
Pre-orders are ongoing.
In support of the record, the band will be on tour this summer. Consult their full schedule below.

Listen to Broken Social Scene and Years
May 23, 2013 3:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound
As previously reported, famed Canadian indie label Arts & Crafts is celebrating their 10th anniversary with X, a compilation of collaborations between bands on their roster. For their contribution, Broken Social Scene have teamed with avant-rocker Ohad Benchetrit (aka Years) for a track entitled, “Day Of The Kid”.
Over the course of six minutes, the outfit lays down hushed vocal harmonies, muted guitars, and intermittent drums played with true deliberateness. And though the song never reaches some grand release, only moving from non-existent to slightly fragile, the methodical build is spellbinding in and of itself.

In the clip for the twinkling and sighing “Take My Hand,” from director Ryan Andrews, Charli swans around a frenetic dance party, throwing come-hither looks in every possible direction. It’s quite a performance. Watch it below.
