A post to keep y’all in the loop this Tuesday night: There have been some killer releases today.  St. Vincent released “Strange Mercy.”  Her third effort, the LP is held down by singles “Surgeon” and “Cruel.”  She has received numerous favorable reviews, including a “Best New Music” nod from Pitchfork.

Additionally, Neon Indian’s sophomore LP, “Era Extraña” was released today.  Tracks to check out include “Polish Girl” and “Hex Girlfriend.”  The just-released music video of the former is embedded below.  A collaboration between The Creator’s Project (Vice and Intel) and director Tim Nackashi, it tells the story of “a futurist romance between a data-mining outcast and the woman he loves.”

Finally, several notable music videos were unveiled today.  Scroll down to view Cut Copy’s “Blink And You’ll Miss A Revolution” and a director’s cut of Das Racist’s latest single “Michael Jackson.”  The videos feature post-apocalyptic monkey-men and a Michael Jackson impersonator respectively.
