Indie-pop duo, The Submarines, are hard at work on their third album, but in the meantime, the band has revealed a brand new video for the psychedelic-classical track “Submarine Symphonika” off of their sophomore album Honeysuckle Weeks. If the song sounds familiar, that’s because you have probably heard it in the new iPhone 3G S TV commercial currently airing!

The Decemberists’ epic song cycle The Hazards Of Love takes on new life on December 1st with the release of Here Come The Waves: The Hazards Of Love Visualized, a full-length video album available exclusively through iTunes, the first of a kind for the digital retailer. Here Come The Waves, which was debuted live in Los Angeles in October to rave reviews, is a collaboration with four filmmakers—Peter Sluszka, Julia Pott, Guilherme Marcondes, and Santa Maria—each of whom created original animation to accompany a section of the album.
The Hazards Of Love became one of the most discussed album’s of the year when EMI’s Capitol Records released it in March, and went on to become a thrilling live spectacle as the band performed the album in it’s entirety throughout the summer in front of sold-out audiences across the country from their hometown of Portland, Oregon, to New York’s Radio City Music Hall, as well as major festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.

The two members of superstar indie pop duo She & Him are busy, busy folks. M. Ward released two albums in 2009, as a solo artist and as a member of Monsters of Folk. And Zooey Deschanel is a bona fide movie star, which is the sort of thing that tends to dominate one's schedule. In September, she also got married to Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard.
All of which is to say that we didn't expect a follow-up to Volume One, She & Him's extra-twee 2008 debut, anytime soon. But it looks like we're getting one.
In an interview with MTV News, Deschanel revealed that She & Him have already completed their sophomore album and that they'll release it early next year: "I have a new [She & Him] record coming out in the spring. It's official. It's done and being released in the spring. And we're going to go on tour."
