It’s been five years since Blind Pilot have released an album, but for frontman Israel Nebeker it might as well been a lifetime. In the blink of an eye Nebeker lost his closest group of friends, his 13 year relationship ended and his dad was diagnosed with cancer. He moved back home to help his family with his fathers sickness and eventual death. Through this two year experience though, it brought Nebeker a deeper will to care and hope. “Packed Powder” came from the idea Nebeker had as a teenager, when he and his friends found out they could repack fireworks to different outcomes. “We’re all made of the same stuff, but who knows how we’re packed and what we’ll show as we burn across the black sky of our own time?” Download “Packed Powder” off And Then Like Lions and learn more about Blind Pilot at their Official Website, “Like” them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

Los Angeles based Warpaint is set to release their third album, Heads Up this Friday (9/23). With all the members focusing more on solo projects, each member was allowed the space, freedom and creativity to write songs on their own. Actually their was only four or five times the whole band was in the recording studio together. This contributed to looser vibes and reduced the creative pressures of making a record. Our first and only glimpse of the album before it’s released is “New Song,” which is a departure from the band’s melancholy sound. But Jenny Lee Lindberg wrote the song after playing a game where each member of the band was tasked with writing a tune immediately after hearing another song. Her choice was Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” “I love Nile Rodgers – I love his style,” Lindberg says. “That song made me really happy, so I was like, ‘Okay, well, I’m going to try and put a little Nile Rodgers feel to it.’ His part is like a rhythm guitar, but I’m playing it on the bass. I got a disco beat playing. And so ‘New Song’ sounds nothing like ‘Get Lucky,’ but that’s what I wrote literally after I was given that assignment.” Download “New Song” off Heads Up and learn more about Warpaint at their Official Website, “Like” him on Facebook and follow him on Twitter.

Chicago musician Andrew Bird changed his songwriting process on his tenth solo album, Are You Serious. Instead of writing imaginative lyrics in the third person, Bird wrote about personal experiences in the first person. As a result, there is less wordplay but as he says, “Who has time for poetics while grappling with birth and death?” The center piece of the album is “Roma Fade.” A song about the first few times Bird saw his wife at a party, and the longing he had to meet her. “‘Roma Fade’ present both sides of the phenomenon of observing and being observed. Desire draws a fine line between what’s romantic and what’s creepy.” Download “Roma Fade” off Are You Serious and learn more about Andrew Bird at his Official Website, “Like” him on Facebook and follow him on Twitter.
