First Listen: Julian Casablancas and More

I have bad news and good news. First, the bad news. Julian Casablancas' highly anticipated solo album, 'Phrazes For the Young', has been pushed back to Nov. 3. Grr. The good news is the crooner has given us another song to tide us over.

Sloan are in a giving mood, too. Go to their Web site or download below for a listen to the Canadian rockers' new single. It's some of the band's best hand claps since "The Good in Everyone".

I really liked The Magic Numbers' first record a lot, but I kind of lost track of them when the second one came out. Here's my chance to rediscover them. Their harmonies, once again, sound stellar on this new song that will be part of their third album due out sometime this spring. These hippies don't look or sound much like anything I would normally be into, but good is good, people.
