Willy Mason has had several strings of mini-successes since beginning his career, but as soon as he would begin to build a public profile, awareness of his music would dwindle. Chalk that up to Mason's mysterious demeanor or lack of self-promotion — either way, the guy might now be poised for the breakout he's been waiting for since teaming up with Communion Records.
Darkside - Golden Arrow, from the new album "Psychic."
SCRNS - TTYN, their new single.
King Krule - Border Line, from the new album "6 Feet Beneath The Moon."
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Nightwater Girlfriend, from the new album "Fly By Wire."
The Dismemberment Plan - Daddy Was A Real Good Dancer, from the new album "Uncanney Valley."

2013 appears to be the year of the break-out debut single. The story goes like this: if your single is strong enough, you get significant press, praise and enough hype and money to fund a debut album well beyond the means of most fledgling artists. Such is the case with Lorde's Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor.
Strange Names - Potential Wife (Information Society Remix)
Califone - Frosted Tips, from the new album "Stitches."
Tristen - No One's Gonna Know , from the new album "Caves."
