Sleigh Bells will release their new album, Jessica Rabbit, on November 11. Here’s their latest, “It’s Just Us Now”. You can watch the video below to see Alexis Krauss crying in a bikini and Derek Miller—who directed the clip—terrorizing a graveyard in a bandana. Continue reading

Frank Ocean and Andre 3000 take turns flying “Solo”

Every time an artist releases a followup to an acclaimed breakout album, the early adopters are quick to churn out arbitrary comparisons. You see it everywhere. Kendrick Lamar raps in a languid, tearful voice on “u”? Better compare it to his voice-crackingly manic verse on “m.A.A.d City”. The... Continue reading

Review: Vince Staples, Prima Donna

Check out this lesson I just learned the hard way: Almost every Vince Staples outing—regardless of length, distribution, or cover art—must be treated with an almost universal amount of caution. This was as true with 2014’s Hell Can Wait, Staples’ heavy-hitting major-label debut, as it was with... Continue reading

Bon Iver share new track "33 'God'"

Bon Iver have shared a third new song, and what appears to be the first album-track we’ve heard from their upcoming LP 22, A Million. (The double-sided single they released a couple weeks ago seems to consist of remixed versions of tracks from the album.) It’s called “33 ‘God’”—listen below. 22 A... Continue reading

Frank Ocean's Surreal and Immediate "Pink + White"

I have to respectfully disagree with my colleague Austin Reed on this one. I don’t think four days is enough to absorb most records, even if listening to it is all you do. If listening to it all I do, I’m more likely to experience satiation than any sort of epiphanies about the depths of the record... Continue reading

Kanye West makes a speech, premieres "Fade" video at VMAs—watch

MTV gave Kanye West several minutes to do whatever he wanted at the VMAs on Sunday night and he actually chose to put those precious minutes of primetime television to promote some music! Ha, just kidding. He made a 6 minute speech first. His so-called “I Am Kanye West” speech touches on... Continue reading

Review: De La Soul, And the Anonymous Nobody

There’s no nice way to say this, but frankly the number of recording contracts thrown at shitty rappers with dark trap beats, trashy lyric vibes, and some dunce drawling vowels in front of it, has tested my fucking patience. It’s not even just the sound itself, which is already pretty depressing... Continue reading

Here's a list of Frank Ocean's 100 favorite films

Another gem from Frank Ocean’s Boys Don’t Cry magazine—a list of his favorite films. A lot of institutional consensus favorites here—Bergman, Kubrick, Kurosawa, Lynch, Lang, Scorsese, Tarantino, Tarkovsky—but nevertheless a fascinating look into Ocean’s artistic preferences. If... Continue reading
