Jessie Ware – “Midnight”

13 minutes agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Jessie Ware's last album, Tough Love, came out back in 2014 and we named it one of the best of the year. We've heard a few one-off singles from the soul singer since -- including Fifty Shades Of Grey contribution "Meet Me In The Middle" and Me Before You offering "Till The End" -- and…

Tori Amos – “Cloud Riders”

14 minutes agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

In April, Tori Amos announced the release of her 15th studio album, Native Invader, due out in early September. As the title suggests, the LP pulls inspiration from nature and takes a close look at our relationships with and within it. Today Amos shares the album's first single, "Cloud Riders," via NPR. The earthy imagery…

Katy Perry Will Host The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards

33 minutes agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Katy Perry will host the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. Last year's ceremony didn't have an official host as tradition dictates (though Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele did MC), perhaps due to the fact that Miley Cyrus was pretty terrible when she helmed the event back in 2015. In addition to hosting, Perry will also…

Tom Petty Brought All The Hits To Forest Hills

48 minutes agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last night, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers brought their 40th anniversary tour to New York for the first time. After playing an arena in New Jersey last month, they scaled it back somewhat for this two-night stand, playing what is nominally a tennis stadium in Queens, but is functionally a much smaller space than a…

D.R.A.M. – “Cute (Remix)” (Feat. Cardi B)

50 minutes agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Amid his busy schedule touring with Kendrick Lamar and dropping collabs here and there, yesterday, we spotted Big Baby D.R.A.M. making an appearance in Charli XCX's "Boys" video. And today, he releases a remix of "Cute," which comes from his 2016 self-titled album. The remix features a verse from Bronx rapper Cardi B. She confirms…

Stream Margo Price’s Surprise EP Weakness

Margo Price had a big 2016. We named the country musician an Artist To Watch last year on the strength of her solo debut, Midwest Farmer's Daughter, which was released on Third Man Records. Price went on to perform on SNL and various other late night shows, and guested with Jack White on A Prairie…

Mick Jagger Shares Tame Impala & Skepta Collabs In Reponse To “The Changing Political Situation”

Mick Jagger released two songs today that are meant to address the "confusion and frustration with the times we live in." The songs are called "England Lost," which features Skepta, and "Gotta Get A Grip." Jagger told the AP that he wrote the songs in April and wanted to release them immediately. "Doing a whole…

Q&A: Gillian Welch On The Arcane Process Of Pressing Vinyl & Why She Didn’t Feel Like A Proper Artist Until Now

The music of Gillian Welch exists outside of time. When she first started performing in the '90s, she was singing dirges and ballads and rambling cautionary tales in a voice that harkens back to folks songs you'd be more likely to hear in the Library Of Congress' archive than anywhere else. Accompanied by her partner…

2 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

It's been a grueling six-year wait for Curb Your Enthusiasm fans, but we're only a few months away from the highly anticipated ninth season! Larry David returns to HBO with most of the original cast, along with more than a handful of awesome guests. It only makes sense that said awesome guest star roster includes…

Shannon Lay – “The Moons Detriment”

3 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Versatile songsmith Shannon Lay shreds on guitar in the Los Angeles group Feels and then reduces you to a puddle of emotions with her beautiful, stripped-down solo work. Today, Lay has announced she's gearing up to release her second solo album, closely following up her debut, All This Life Going Down, from February. Living Water…

Q&A: Ben Gibbard On His Teenage Fanclub Tribute, The Next Death Cab LP, & His Heaviest Song Ever

3 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

It shouldn't surprise anyone that Ben Gibbard's favorite band is Teenage Fanclub, another ostensibly alt-rock-identified bunch of formalist squares whose records are as crafty and delicately layered as Death Cab For Cutie's. But his new solo take on the entirety of their 1991 power-pop landmark Bandwagonesque (out this week via Turntable Kitchen) is still quite…

Sweet Apple – “World I’m Gonna Leave You” (Feat. Mark Lanegan & Robert Pollard) Video

Stream Ben Frost’s Surprise Threshold Of Faith EP

3 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Experimental noise composer Ben Frost is back with a new surprise EP called Threshold Of Faith today. Melbourne-born, Reykjavik-based Frost traveled to Chicago last summer to record with Steve Albini, and they came away with more than two hours' worth of music. The seven-track Threshold Of Faith represents the first trickle of that music out…

Stars – “Fluorescent Light”

4 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Stars, the theatrical Canadian indie-pop veterans, came back last month with two new songs, "Privilege" and "We Called It Love." And now NPR reports that the band -- like fellow Canadian mid-'00s indie-pop insurrectionists Broken Social Scene and Feist -- will make a grand return later this year. The band worked with producer Peter Katis…

Club Night – “Well”

4 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Club Night are a group of musicians based out of Oakland. Earlier this month they released their first-ever song, "Rally," from their debut release, the forthcoming Hell Yea EP. It was a jolt that recalled the collectivist spirit of the mid-to-late-'00s, but it also felt chaotically imbalanced; similarly, the second single from that EP, "Well,"

Ringo Starr – “We’re On The Road Again” (Feat. Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter, & Steve Lukather)

4 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Ringo Starr's new album, Give More Love, will be out this fall and we already heard the title track. Today, Starr debuted a collaboration with Paul McCartney, the Eagles’ Joe Walsh, Toto’s Steve Lukather, and Edgar Winter. "We're On The Road Again" is one of several songs on the LP that Starr and McCartney worked…

Watch Kendrick Lamar Bring Out J. Cole In Detroit

4 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Kendrick Lamar's arena-conquering DAMN. tour is moving across America right now, and while Kendrick isn't the most spectacle-heavy rapper, he's brought some surprises at some of the shows. Earlier this week in Brooklyn, he shared his stage with 2 Chainz and Travis Scott. And at last night's Detroit show, he brought out his fellow smarty-pants…

Stream Dream Ritual Summer Promo EP

4 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last Friday, grunge-leaning Missouri rock band Dream Ritual shared their impressive single "Noise." Today, they're packaging it with two more tracks that are just as melodically buoyant. The fraying distortion of "Oil & Canvas" contains the same ferocity as "Noise," but at a slower pace. In the witchy "Sunlight Girl," a mysterious female figure is…
