In the new video for Here We Go Magic's "How Do I Know," we see a man torn between two choices, that being his wife and a very human-like robot. As director Sean Pecknold (the brother of Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold) explains, "I wanted to return to the strangeness and warmth of the Palm Springs area to shoot a little story about a man torn between two choices in his life. When listening to the jam I kept seeing a human-like robot dancing on the side of the highway, so I incorporated that into a light-hearted, literal take on the question posed in the song." Check it out above.

Brooklyn indie rock outfit Here We Go Magic have announced that their third studio album, now titled A Different Ship, will be released on May 8th via Secretly Canadian. Along with the announcement, the band has made the first song from the album, "Make Up Your Mind," available for download, so feel free to grab it below.
When speaking with Stereogum, the band's frontman Luke Temple said that, when comparing A Different Ship to their last album Pigeons, that"Pigeons had a lot more artifice in it. I’m sure there will be haters saying it’s a slick sound, but actually this record is much more organic. This album is just us." Along with comparing the two works, Temple commented on working with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, saying "All in all, it was super great. He’s just fundamentally an easy guy and became a friend. He’s very humble and incredibly efficient with his work. I mean, he is who he is for a reason. It’s like the same feeling I get when you watch short order cooks cracking eggs and the facility with their hands. He’s totally masterful."
