Here It Is, Car Seat Headrest Covering Smash Mouth

6 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last Thursday was a big day: the day that Car Seat Headrest covered Smash Mouth and Smash Mouth covered Car Seat Headrest. We've already heard the latter part of that equation -- hear SM's take on "Something Soon" here -- and now you can listen to Will Toledo and crew's take on Astro Lounge's "Fallen…

8 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The 2018 BRIT Awards took place tonight at the O2 Arena in London, and Kendrick Lamar was on hand for a surprise performance.

Stream Lionlimb Tape Recorder

9 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

We’ve been keeping up with Stewart Bronaugh and Joshua Jaeger’s psych-pop project Lionlimb since their 2016 debut, Shoo. In anticipation of their sophomore record, Tape Recorder, Angel Olsen’s contemporaries gave us "Maria" and "Clover." The album won’t be officially released until Friday, but it's streaming early for those of us who can’t wait for the…

Stream Rixe Promo Tape EP

10 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

On the DIY punk underground, the sort of music that seems to get the most respect these days is either dark, brooding, gothic art-punk or rickety, noise-influenced hardcore that reminds me of what the Troubleman Unlimited label was doing in the early '00s. Sometimes, old-school fists-up street-punk doesn't get the same level of respect, but…

Watch August Greene Play Unreleased Songs At Tiny Desk Concert

12 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Next month, we'll finally get to hear the self-titled debut from August Greene, the new supergroup trio that features Common, Robert Glasper, and Karriem Riggins. The three of them have plenty of experience occupying the places where jazz, rap, and pop intersect, and it makes sense for them to be making music as a trio…

Illuminati Hotties – “(You’re Better) Than Ever” Video

13 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Sarah Tudzin is the mastermind behind Illuminati Hotties, a goofily-named but very sincere and fun project based out of Los Angeles. She has a couple songs to her name so far, including "(You're Better) Than Ever," a compact pop gem that serves as the lead single to her debut album, Kiss Yr Frenemies, which is…

Zola Jesus – “Bound”

13 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

We were big fans of Zola Jesus' 2017 release Okovi -- like, so big that we called it one of the year's best albums and interviewed her at the Basilica Soundscape festival. Today she's reminding us why we like her so much with a fresh addition to the Adult Swim Singles Series. There's also news…

Sorority Noise – “Chelsea Hotel No. 2? (Leonard Cohen Cover)

13 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Sorority Noise's You're Not As _____ As You Think was one of the best albums of 2017 and, as part of a process of revisiting and refining that LP that started with last fall's Alone 7" (which filled in that black in the title), the band has announced an acoustic version of it, dubbed YNAAYT…

Towkio Flying 100,000 Miles High In A Helium Balloon To Literally Drop His Album

13 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Chicago rapper Towkio is taking the concept of dropping music to a new level with a publicity stunt for his debut album. Today, he's put himself in a helium balloon that will travel 100,000 feet in the air to coincide with his album's release at the end of the week. He launched at 11:11AM CST…

High Sunn – “Those Last Words”

13 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last we heard from the now 18-year-old San Fran musician Justin Cheromiah was when he was putting out his umpteenth EP as High Sunn, Hopeless Romantic. Now we’re getting a look into his upcoming full-length debut, Missed Connections, with "Those Last Words." The jangly guitar -- and more so the urgency in Cheromiah’s voice when…

Lil Uzi Vert & Playboi Carti – “Bankroll”

13 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

One of last year's biggest hits, Lil Uzi Vert's "XO Tour Llif3," started out its life as a SoundCloud loosie, impulsively uploaded after Uzi lost his phone while crowd-surfing. With that in mind, we have to treat just about every random Uzi track uploaded to SoundCloud seriously. Uzi, from Philadelphia, is one of the biggest…

The National’s Matt Berninger Gives An Update On His TV Show

14 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Over the years, the National have been no strangers to extracurricular activities outside the band. There have been side projects, Aaron Dessner's work as a producer, his brother Bryce's robust second life as a classical composer. Primarily thanks to the Dessner twins, the group's been attached to a handful of festivals around the world --…

Mind Over Mirrors – “Zeitgebers”

14 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Jaime Fennelly leads Mind Over Mirrors, the cosmic project comprising Jim Becker (Iron and Wine, Califone) on violin, Janet Beveridge Bean (Freakwater, Eleventh Dream Day) on hand percussion, and Jon Mueller (Death Blues) on drums. Last month they teased their forthcoming album, Bellowing Sun, with the frenetic and entrancing "Matchstick Grip." Today they share "Zeitgebers,"

Someone Seriously Booked An All-Ska-Punk Festival In 2018

14 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Ska-punk, the sunny and uptempo and relentlessly cheery mutation of early-'60s Jamaican dance music that took over alt-rock radio sometime in the mid-'90s, is not considered remotely cool these days. Those of us who once proudly rocked newsboy caps and chain wallets and bomber jackets covered with patches have been made to feel ashamed and…

The Number Ones: Percy Faith’s “Theme From A Summer Place“

14 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

In The Number Ones, I'm reviewing every single #1 single in the history of the Billboard Hot 100, starting with the chart's beginning, in 1958, and working my way up into the present. Percy Faith - "Theme From A Summer Place" HIT #1: February 22, 1960 …

JPEGMAFIA Makes Murky Lo-Fi Rap Into Something Exciting

15 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

When the lanky, pointy-jawed wrestler Edge debuted in the WWF in 1998, looking like a Rob Liefeld drawing, he was an evil, grinning goth in a leather trench coat, the acolyte of a wrestling vampire who'd spit blood into the air on his way to the ring. Over the years, Edge's character changed. He became…

Kitten – “I Did It!” Video

15 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Kitten are finally getting around to following up their 2014 self-titled debut with a sophomore full-length, and so far all we've heard is the retro-pop gem "I Did It!" And now the song has an equally retro music video directed by Abigail Tulis. "We were pulling from all sorts of places, but when I sent…

Speedy Ortiz – “Lucky 88? Video

15 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

It's been a bit since Speedy Ortiz's last album, 2015's excellent Foil Deer, but they've kept busy in the interim. Sadie Dupuis launched her Sad13 synth-pop side project and the band released a companion EP and enough one-offs and covers and demos to tide us over until their next full-length. And it turns…

Sorry – “2 Down 2 Dance” Video

15 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The metamorphosing UK band Sorry are amassing an impressive little collection of songs for themselves between last year's "Wished" b/w "Lies" 7" and their stitched-together mixtape of home demos. Today, the four-piece -- which is centered around the interplay between childhood friends Asha Lorenz & Louis O'Bryen, and rounded out by drummer Lincoln Barrett and…
