Download: Thieves Like Us "Miss You"

Thieves Like Us claims its new album, Play Music, is mostly about "love gone wrong." Throw that subject matter over music influenced equally by disco, hip-hop, and pop, and you have a rather bittersweet affair good for dancing or crying to. Play Music is out March 10 on Fantasy Memory/Shelf Life.

Download: Prefuse 73 "Preperation's Kids Choir"

Label: Warp

Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian—the latest album from Prefuse 73—garnered its name from the fact that Scott Herren recorded tracks straight to an analog Ampex tape, thereby giving his trademark avant-hop a grainy, somewhat nostalgic feel. Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian will be out April 14 on Warp.

Download: A Shoreline Dream Feat. Ulrich Schnauss "Hypermode"

Self-proclaimed "melodi-psych" rockers, A Shoreline Dream, has just released its second full-length, Recollections of Memory. The haunting, echoed vocals and cloud-like composition of this psychedelic, chord-rippled first single feel like a winter snowstorm. Recollections of Memory is out now on Late Night Weeknight Records.

Download: Exclusive: Mux Mool "End Guy (Radio Edit)"

Label: Moodgadget

The historically sinister Mux Mool (Brian Lindgren) is back with a new EP that, if “End Guy” is an indicator, sounds like he employed a 30-member choir and as many synths for production purposes on the new release. Lindgren made this Radio Edit of the track exclusively for XLR8R, while meanwhile, the Just Saying is All EP will be out March 17 on iTunes and March 31 elsewhere.

Download: Pfunkt "Against All Evens"

Warped synth lines, quivering electronics, and guest vocals by French Horn Rebellion's Robert Perlick-Molinari converge on the first single from Pfunkt's self-titled debut longplayer, and it's a rather brooding affair. Pfunkt will be available as a pay-what-you-want download on February 14.

Download: Exclusive: Lithops "Dear Dorant"

At times this track—a part of Lithops' new, limited-edition collection of sound installation works he's dubbed Ye Viols!—is a lo-fi parade of clicks, ratatats, and undulating synths. During other instances, it sounds more akin to a telephone that's been left off the hook. Behold, "Dear Dorant." Ye Viols! is out now on Thrill Jockey.

Download: Faunts "Feel.Love.Thinking.Of. (Mexicans with Guns Remix)"

2009's busiest remixer, Mexicans with Guns, takes this epic, cinematic, and decidedly shoegaze track from Faunts and whips it into a bass-heavy, ghettotech frenzy.
