Today's roundup includes Editors, Girls, Loverman, Clues and The Tragically Hip. *Remember! The news roundup gets updated throughout the day, so make sure you come back later for more news! Editors To celebrate the release of their third studio album, âIn This Light And On This Eveningâ this week, Editors have created a unique listening experience for their new album by appearing to 'hack' Google Street View. The experience allows fans to use a version of Google Maps on the Editors website to travel to certain areas of London where the band have hacked in their own custom locations. The new additions consist of some gloriously moody 360 degree images, shot at night. Â Within each location the user will hear a track from the new album, which was inspired by the mood and magic of London at night.. The images feature the band and a group of their fans performing surreal activities which reportedly have hidden meanings relating to the songs. The locations are normally unavailable on the regular Street View. Editors modified version of Google Maps allows users to enter into these locations and make the transition from light to dark so fans can explore the band's atmospheric vision of London at night. To access the Map go to : Girls Girls are releasing their brilliant new single "Laura" on 9th November on Fantasytrashcan/Turnstile Music, taken from the bandâs debut album "Album", which has been receiving rave reviews across the board.Â Laura is another piece of gloriously melodic, evocative West Coast pop from the San Francisco duo.Â Girls are currently on tour in the UK, playing London's Hoxton Bar & Kitchen next Tuesday, and finish their stint in the UK at SWN Festival in Cardiff.

Clues will be spreading a message of peace and harmony, while arguing the merits of bank nationalisation and the command economy, in a spirited musical performance that has been 'wowing' audiences since the release of their debut album in May 2009. The 7" features a glorious remix of epic album track "Ledmonton" by the band themselves, and a heartbreaking early demo version of tragicomic album track "You Have My Eyes Now".
