Australian duo Canyons are set to release their long-awaited album Keep Your Dreams next month. Their debut single "My Rescue" infuses the electronic dance music the group is known for with heavy guitars and live drums. "We actually wrote 'My Rescue' about the feeling you get when inspiration strikes and the power it has to momentarily make all your worries disappear," Canyons' Leo Thomson tells Rolling Stone. "In essence, the song is kind of about itself because the music for it came about when we were feeling a little uninspired and just tinkering with a couple of sounds. The lyrics ended up being about that process."

Canyons' Keep Your Dreams will hit stores on November 15th, but you can download "My Rescue" for free here.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
