Music Mo'nday: April 23

A glance at some artists deep in the hearts of homos

By Rob Cohen, 12:10PM, Mon. Apr. 23, 2012

Music is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get, and the nuttier the better. This week, we get a first taste of a number of upcoming albums, as well as special playlists from the East Side Homo Hop and more.

"One Against the Rush" Liars
Avant punky brewsters return with a gauzy, sickly New Order-esque new single.

"Lazuli" Beach House
This dream-pop duo just gets bigger, bolder, and better with each album. Buzz words aplenty.

"Every Single Night" Fiona Apple
Everyone's favorite over-sharer is back sounding old and raw with this hook-less first single off her upcoming album. Initial listens underwhelm.

"Ekki Mukk" Sigur Rós
Jónsi and his pixie brethren won't tell you where the pot of gold is, but they'll glamor you into a state of either sleep or joy. Triforce not required.

"Night and Day" Hot Chip
These electroweirdos are Urkel by day, Stefan by night, but always funky fresh. Top that.
