Phoenix tease new song in tour trailer

Phoenix keep announcing new shows, from headlining NYC’s GovBall to dates in Paris, LA, and London, but the band has just now finally teased new music. A far cry from a new single or album announcement, the band has shared a trailer for their 2017 tour soundtracked by what sounds like a... Continue reading

Lorde's new single "Green Light" coming tomorrow

Lorde will finally follow-up the massive success of “Royals” and Pure Heroine with a single called “Green Light”. The best part? Lorde seems to be as excited about the new single as the rest of us.

Kanye West shares sexy, 17-minute soundtrack to Yeezy Season 5

This month’s Yeezy Season 5 fashion show didn’t feature any new Kanye West music (nary a peep from his already months late Turbo Grafx 16), but it did feature this 17-minute version of The-Dream’s terrific 2007 deep cut “Bed”.The remix was co-produced by DJDS (fka DJ Dodger Stadium). Listen... Continue reading

Review: Thundercat, Drunk

The skinny version: Drunk continues Thundercat’s slow ascent; his most ambitious work yet, one that wants you take it as a whole so you can experience getting drunk alongside Thundercat and stumble through the streets at 3 AM. Think: “Oh Sheit It’s X” in album form.And I do mean slow ascent. While... Continue reading

Review: Dirty Projectors, Dirty Projectors

Oh God, why. What the hell is this nonsense. I thought Dave Longstreth was too good for this Bon Iver/Father John Misty crap. Going all glitchy is only a matter of time for pop musos these days, sure. Especially in regards to indie rock, where the prog impulse that groups like the Projectors helped... Continue reading

Frank Ocean interviewed Jay Z on new radio show

Today Frank Ocean deepened his disruptive partnership with Apple Music when he launched “Blonded Radio”, a new radio show on the streaming service’s Beats 1.

Review: King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Flying Mictrotonal Banana

King Gizzard, with a name that clearly started out as a joke, have become a part of the increasingly creative rock scene coming out of Australia with Tame Impala and Pond. Perhaps they are the fulfillment of what the Vines obviously never became, perhaps something new. Either way, King Gizzard and... Continue reading

Hear Frank Ocean, Migos on Calvin Harris' "Slide"

After a lot of Snapchap teasing, noted underwear model Calvin Harris has shared his big new single with the cultural currency printing machine that is the combined forces of Frank Ocean and Migos. Guess what? It’s kinda classy! This is never a given with Harris, whose solution to less-than-stellar... Continue reading

Future's new album, out tomorrow, features Rihanna, The Weeknd

On Friday, tomorrow, Future will release his second album in as many weekends. Following his somewhat tepid self-titled album last week is Hndrxx, another collection of 17 tracks. This time around, Future is bringing two of the biggest pop stars around with him: Rihanna and The... Continue reading

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. Apparently, the song has been “played at various clubs and venues, as American Airlines boarding music, even by the house bands of the ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ and ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’” Even if...

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
