Swedish duo Korallreven make their long-awaited return with blissful, kind of morbidly romantic new single “Death Is Not For Us“, the opening track from the group’s soaring new full-length Second Comin’.

Embarrassed to admit that we’ve mostly slept on Orlando duo SALES so far (except for this), but no more: the group’s beautiful debut EP, which compiles all of the unstoppable, very emotional singles they’ve released up to this point, has quickly become one of our favorite records of 2014 so far. The EP also includes a new/unreleased song called “Getting it On” that’s one of the most heartbreaking things we’ve heard all year, and this darkly dreamy atmospheric remix by talented young producer (and SALES’ fellow Orlando native) XXYYXX:
SALES debut EP — featuring vibrant collage artwork by Alana Questell, who also created art for each song on the record — is available for pre-order now here. Catch their EP release show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn on September 24.
As if we weren’t psyched enough for Panda Bear‘s set in Dallas tonight, today we are #blessed with the first seemingly official Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper-related thing to be released so far, via the new PB vs. GR site: a new mixtape, I think? Pretty sure it’s a mixtape, with short previews from the new album hidden in the mix. Panda Bear headlines GvsB IV tonight at the Granada Theater, with SOPHIE, Ejecta, Doss & Blues Control. See you there!
