As enchanted as we were by the trippy, technicolor original video for the title track from Liverpool band Stealing Sheep‘s wonderful forthcoming Not Real LP, we might have easily dismissed a secondary “live video” as unnecessary, an inessential afterthought. We would have been mistaken; this one, though stark and simple, might somehow be even better. Shot by Ben Morgan at Vessel Studios in Liverpool. Not Real is out April 13.

One of the best bands I caught last week — not at SXSW, but at Spillover here in Dallas — Nashville’s Bully has announced their debut full-length, Feels Like, out June 23 on StarTime International. Here’s the blistering and cathartic lead single:

As if we weren’t psyched enough for Jamie xx’s debut record already: this song, which features the xx’s Romy Madley Croft and an absolutely glorious and inspired Idris Muhammad sample, is beautiful (and Annie Mac‘s enthusiasm is contagious):
