The psych/space rock band is back with their fourth album, the first one made after half the band moved away from San Francisco. By Amanda Roscoe Mayo
The Canadian synth pop group offers an intimate live performance of its song "A Real Hero," popularized in the 2011 film Drive.
Recorded with the Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir in the ruins within Newport's Fort Adams State Park, "Divisionary (Do The Right Thing)" has a message and a chorus that everyone can enjoy.
Three centuries ago, Domenico Scarlatti churned out 555 keyboard sonatas. Today, pianists, harpsichordists and even accordionists still can't get enough. Hear a clutch of new recordings.
