MP3 Monday (Part II): AM, Grooms, Robin Guthrie, Headlights

Hope you're ready for more! Here's part two of today's MP3 Monday:

AM - Grand Opinion (MP3)

Singer/songwriter AM's name is a fitting one considering his unique brand of low-key indie pop with a decidedly funky retro feel that makes up the majority of his new album, Future Sons & Daughters, which was released digitally last week. "Grand Opinion" is the smooth, soulful single available for download, a pleasant trip to a groovier time and place. (MySpace)

Grooms - Dreamsucker (MP3 via Stereogum)

Grooms make the kind of noisy, mid-fi rock 'n' roll that I normally might not pay much attention to, but "Dreamsucker," from their upcoming LP, is simply awesome. I hate to send you through another site to get to the tune, but I promise it's worth it. The album, Rejoicer, will be out on October 13th on Death By Audio. (MySpace)

Robin Guthrie - Some Sort of Paradise (MP3 via Brooklyn Vegan)

Robin Guthrie, most commonly known as a member of Cocteau Twins, is set to release a new solo album, Carousel, on September 28th. Good new for fans of Guthrie's dreamy instrumental soundscapes, the most recent of which, "Some Sort of Paradise," can be downloaded here as a preview of the upcoming record. (MySpace)
Headlights - Get Going (MP3 via RCRD LBL)

Boy/girl indie poppers Headlights are giving us a glimpse of their upcoming effort with "Get Going," a lovely pop tune with sweet harmonies and shimmering guitars. I know I'm sending you all over the place to grab these tunes, but like the others, this is worth the trip. Wildlife is out October 6th on Polyvinyl. (MySpace)
