It’s going to be very hard to match my immense adoration for The War on Drugs’ 2014 album Lost in the Dream, but the Philadelphia collective’s new album A Deeper Understanding, which arrives later this month, has certainly been shaping up to be a stupendous release. All of the songs we’ve heard so far off of the album have been well received and critically acclaimed. Now we can add Pain to A Deeper Understanding’s growing list of fine tunes, too. The languorous ambling, twangy worn treat from the well loved Americana and roots rock veterans takes us on a dreamy sojourn dripping with dusty nostalgia. “Pain” has never been more sublime. A Deeper Understanding arrives August 25th via Atlantic. Pre-order, here.

17 year old East Coast production whiz Ship Wrek is a fast rising star in the electronic scene, having racked up millions of streams on his prior tracks, including his collaboration with Zookeepers, Ark. There’s no sign that he’s slowing down, either. Just listen to Ship Wrek’s symphonic trap original, Pain, which features beautifully enchanting vocals by Mia Vaile. This regal cinematic, noble marching track feels like it comes off of the soundtrack for an epic sweeping film. A grand battle and all its tragic consequences flash before my eyes. Ship Wrek’s Pain was premiered during the official TwitchCon live stream in San Diego, and it’s out now via NCS. Snag the track for free, here.

Though we haven’t heard from LVL UP in some time, these fellows from New York have obviously been quite busy. LVL UP recently signed to esteemed Seattle label Sub Pop and they’ve recorded a brand new full length too. Return To Love drops on September 23rd. Pain is a more than welcome preview off the album. LVL UP’s rugged indie rock and scrappy guitar pop builds upon itself from light hearted jangles into heavy whirring, 90′s evoking emo alt rock. The band keenly balances pop and experimentation in their music, using reverb, harmony, and tape distortion. New album Return To Love can be pre-ordered from Sub Pop Records.
