BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB’S latest album is just out, and it’s a much more dancey-electronic set than the band’s previous efforts. Titled So Long, See You Tomorrow, the tracklisting includes tunes “It’s Alright Now,” “Luna,” “Eyes Off You,” “Overdone,” and the title track. They’ll be hitting the road to help promote the new album, with shows already booked in Glasgow, Manchester, and London.

DAMON ALBARN, Jack White, Vampire Weekend, and Phoenix are headlining this year’s Governors Ball Music Festival June 6-8 at New York’s Randall’s Island State Park, to kick off the summer concert season in the Big Apple. It’s a big ticket this year, too, with additional sets from Foster the People, and OutKast, TV on the Radio, Neko Case, La Roux, The Head and the Heart, J. Cole, Broken Bells, and more.

INTERPOL have all their festival dates in a row, as the saying goes, with stops planned already this year for live sets at a plethora of festivals including Governors Ball (NYC), the Hurricane Fest (Germany), Optimus Alive (Portugal) and All Tomorrow’s Parties (Icelandic edition.) That’s in addition to just “regular ol'” live stops in Glasgow Scotland (3.18), Leeds UK (3.19), Manchester UK (3.20), and London (3.27) – and if you’re wondering about a new Interpol album, yes, that’s on the way, too, their fifth studio set to be exact, which is expected later this year.

PYXIS POINTS | Belle and Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch was honored at Sundance for his debut film, God Help the Girl, a musical featuring Olly Alexander | Elbow’s new album is on the way, with first single “New York Morning” on a radio station near you | Alabama Shakes have wrapped the recording for what will be their sophomore album | And Thee Oh Sees are going on a band hiatus, mostly due to their changing geography (aka band members living too far apart.)  – Kristi Kates
