So-and-so is releasing a new five-track EP in a few months, your problematic fave dropped a pretty risque new video and that washed up band that no one has even thought of for a good decade now, has decided to reunite and head out on a world tour. These are the things I need to post at a fervent pace, to not only keep up with the over-saturated blogosphere, but to harness the steady stream of emails that will inevitably continue their high-pressured pursuit into my inbox all hours of the day for the remainder of the week, (and probably on the weekend too, depending on the publicist.)

So to combat the rat-race, we're offering a content compromise in the form of our new daily column, Live From The Gutter - an afternoon recap of the day's press releases and the contents of my 405 email.

Touché Amoré premiere new single 'Skyscraper' ft. Julien Baker

Hear the latest single form Touché Amoré from their new album Stage Four. "I'm a Leonard Cohen fanatic, and I feel he figured out early that his range can be brought to life with the accompaniment of a beautiful female voice over his. So taking a page from his book I asked Julien to join me on the track. I adore Julien and her talent. I couldn't have been more excited when she was down to do it," Jeremy Bolm says.

PREOCCUPATIONS release new video for 'Degraded'

Preoccupations' new self-titled album is out on September 16 via JAGJAGUWAR. Ahead of the release, they've released a new video for album-cut directed by Valentina Tapia. "This video offers an encounter with the primordial ruins of a post-human landscape, where sentient sculptural artifacts attempt to reassemble themselves piece by piece. Unidentified abstracted organisms carry on and thrive in a terrain that's begun to settle back into itself, as rendered in scenes of mixed digital and painted 2D and 3D animation".
