Spoon release new song "Can I Sit Next to You"

Spoon have released “Can I Sit Next to You”, a new song from their upcoming album Hot Thoughts.

Review: Future, Future

“I’m too consistent,” says Future. “Tell me if I’m too persistent.” In the context of the song, “POA”, he’s rapping about cars and women when he says it, but he inadvertently raises the central issue on Future, his fifth studio album, announced on Valentine’s Day three days prior to its release....

Review: Ryan Adams, Prisoner

Let’s be honest — who actually thought Ryan Adams would live to see his forties? For much of the Aughts, Adams teetered constantly on the brink of total, brilliant implosion. The abandon and recklessness with which he fired off musical projects, alternately profound and confounding, was matched... Continue reading

Review: Jens Lekman, Life Will See You Now

Jens Lekman is not easy to recommend. Enjoying the Swedish songwriter’s work requires a stomach for the kind of schmaltz scarcely found outside shit like Marley & Me. His Night Falls Over Kortedala is one of the best indie pop records ever made, but in order to enjoy it, you have to be able to... Continue reading

Lana Del Rey is back with a new song called “Love”, her first single since her Honeymoon (2015) album. The single’s release was teased this week with mysterious posters around Los Angeles. You can listen to the track below, on Apple Music and Spotify. Continue reading

In Defense of Unintelligibility

Recently, my dad asked me who my favorite vocalist was. I mulled it over in my head, and my first thoughts surprised me: Little Jimmy Scott? Young Thug? Sly Stone? None of these (save Stone, maybe) are anyone’s idea of the greatest singer ever. I settled on Prince. He gave me his answer: Marvin... Continue reading

Listen to new releases from Lupe Fiasco & Paul White/Danny Brown

In a good Friday for rap fans, we have new releases from Lupe Fiasco and the Paul White-Danny Brown dream team. Lupe Fiasco follows up his underrated Tetsuo & Youth (2015) with Drogas Light, a new album he has honestly reviewed as a 7 out of 10. No, it’s true—Lupe has described... Continue reading

So the Migos are giant fucking homophobes. What now?

So the Migos are giant fucking homophobes. That’s just wonderful. Nearly as soon as I sent in my four-star review of Culture to Spectrum Culture, I found out that the official Next Beatles apparently think being gay disqualifies a rapper from talking about selling drugs. Of course, the Migos have a... Continue reading

M.I.A. shares new song and video “P.O.W.A”

M.I.A. released her great, and supposedly final, album AIM last year, and today she’s returned with a new single and music video called “P.O.W.A.”Watch the self-directed clip below.Here are the song’s lyrics. It includes the amusing line: “I’m not Rihanna, I’m not Madonna, I’m not Mariah... Continue reading

Lady Gaga premieres "John Wayne" video

Father John Misty's elegy of conciliation

Our pattern-seeking minds have a tendency to connect dots that are not actually there. We can search for serendipity wherever we choose, and from time to time, can attribute events best ascribed to luck to something else entirely. A conspiracy theory is better than no theory. Any information is... Continue reading

Chance the Rapper premieres "Same Drugs" video

Today on Facebook, Chance the Rapper unveiled his latest music video from his Coloring Book project. This time it’s for the delicate and beautiful “Same Drugs”. The video, directed by Jake Schreier, features an alternate version of the track featuring vocals from John Legend, Francis... Continue reading

Review: Big Sean, I Decided

If she gives him a chance, your mom will like Big Sean. Classic, mom-approved values have always been at the core of his work: hard work, sacrifice, persistence, gratitude. On his fourth studio album I Decided, he positions himself as hip-hop’s poster-boy for all of these qualities, but in rapping... Continue reading

Review: Syd, Fin

The inevitability of adulthood does not automatically make you ready for it; ironically and frustratingly, the moment one is considered an adult is not fixed, but set against a relative scale. Thus, one is aware of impending maturity at all times but never quite sure when it’s supposed to be... Continue reading

Review: Elbow, Little Fictions

Elbow, unlike their older brother Coldplay, has seemed eternally underrated. As Coldplay received all the acclaim that Travis deserved, Elbow basked in the leftover desire for a band that kind of sounded like Radiohead, but mostly sounded British. Their best record, 2003’s Cast of Thousands was... Continue reading
