Even though everything's all new again this week, I'm playing a few tunes from bands who have taken longer than normal to release new material: from PASSION PIT (3 years since their last full-length), SIGUR ROS (4 years), THE HIVES & CHROMATICS (5 years), up to SAINT ETIENNE (7 years) and old skoolers PUBLIC IMAGE LTD (20 years). Plus, hear new tunes from ALT-J, TWO WOUNDED BIRDS, and LOWER DENS.
