There’s nothing like a little Afrobeat to get you going on a Sunday morning, and today those sounds come courtesy of London-based Afrobeat/jazz group Kokoroko.

The track “Baba Ayoola” was released late last year as a tribute to saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi’s grandfather and according to the band is “an invitation to celebrate life.” Check it out below.

This new Mogwai single is very good. That is all.

Looking for something to do that’ll kill a few minutes? You’re in luck – The Deathray Davies have coincidentally named their upcoming new album Time Well Wasted and upon listening to first single “Oh Stars” I’d have to agree that it’s a pretty good way to spend the next two minutes and fifty three seconds. Check it out below.

Time Well Wasted is out February 12 via State Fair/We Know Better.

The Antlers have long been a Panic Manual favourite so the recent announcement that they’ll be releasing their new album (and first in seven years) Green To Gold in March of this year is certainly a welcome one.

And if latest single “Solstice” is any indication, the new album finds the band in generally good spirits. As singer Peter Silberman explains, “this is the first album I’ve made that has no eeriness in it”, adding that this time around, he set out to make “Sunday morning music.”

Green To Gold is out March 26 via ANTI- Records. Check out the video for “Solstice” below.
