Australian band Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have just shared "The Hammer" from their forthcoming album, Hope Downs, which is out next week (June 15) via Sub Pop. Like most of what you'll hear on the new album, "The Hammer" is earworm indie rock that nods to Australia's (and New Zealand's) rich history of strummy pop (The Go Betweens, The Clean). Listen to that and a few other songs off the record below.

Rolling Blackouts C.F. have also just announced a North American tour which kicks off late August in San Diego and hits NYC on September 15 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for Bowery are on Citi cardmember presale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 8.
