1. Os Mutantes, "Mutantes Depois"
Here's Os Mutantes' first new song in more than 30 years. You'd think they'd be out of practice, but apparently crafting brain-melting, psychedelic Tropicália is a lot like riding a bicycle. [Pitchfork]

2. Okkervil River, "Lost Coastlines"
With the weather getting warm, you might be tempted to find a nice stretch of empty beach or go out for a sailboat ride, but this sad new Okkervil River track will make you rethink those plans. [Smudge of Ashen Fluff]

3. Mogwai, "Dracula Family"
We're not sure where this happy, optimistic-sounding instrumental track got its name, unless Mogwai mean to say that it's the musical equivalent of a sunshine, capable of killing any vampire foolish enough to listen to it with his family. [Pitchfork]

4. The Zutons, "Always Right Behind You"
If the Zutons were always right behind you, we can imagine that would frequently be annoying. Still, this song isn't bad. [Sell the Lie]

5. Mr. Gnome, "Rabbit"
This Cleveland duo combine ethereal female vocals with loud-soft post-rock guitar dynamics. Count on Mr. Gnome appearing in front yards of hipsters everywhere. [ Captain Obvious]
