Listen: New music from Beyonce, Vampire Weekend, The Strokes.


Okay, let's put SXSW behind is, shall we?

There are new songs to be heard on the web from Vampire Weekend, whose new album Vampires of the City, comes out May 6, and Beyonce, who may or may not be including the bifurcated "Bow Down / I Been On" on her as yet untitled and undated 2013 release. And New York rockers The Strokes' fifth album, Comedown Machine, which comes out next Tuesday, is available to stream on Pitchfork advance.

The first of the Beyonce songs, "Bow Down," is of note for the Queen B.'s Sasha Fierce festiness, perhaps in response to anyone who questioned why, if he's such a strong female role model, she named her new series of concerts The Mrs. Carter Show. "I took some time to live my life, but don't think I'm just his little wife...Bow down bitches."

A Soundcloud stream of the Beyonce songs and lyrics videos to the two Vampire Weekend songs are below. Listen to the Strokes album here.
