The “Broken Record” remix track is exclusively available on Rdio, so there’s no need to get stuck on repeat. Listen to Nocturnes with the bonus remix track below and follow Little Boots on Rdio!

Listen to Passenger’s Exclusive Rdio Sessions


When folk singer-songwriter Passenger (Mike Rosenberg) came to our office back in September to perform live in his very own exclusive Rdio Sessions, he was so witty and charming that he left a trail of hearts in his wake — a trait likely honed while busking far away from home after the transition of Passenger from a group to a solo act.

Fortunately, we captured the dreaminess for your musical pleasure. Check out Passenger’s Rdio Sessions, a five-song set that includes the hit “Let Her Go.”

Hear Boats’ A Fairway Full of Miners One Week Early on Rdio


The always-impressive Pacific Northwest record label Kill Rock Stars is getting ready to drop the new Boats album A Fairway Full of Miners. It’s the third and latest effort from the Winnipeg, Canada-based indie rock group fronted by distinctively high-pitched singer Mat Klachefsky.
