14 minutes agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Pink Flag, Wire's seminal debut album, turns 40 years old in December. But somehow, the post-punk pioneers are still around, and even more miraculously, they still sound absolutely vital. They cranked out an album last year and an album the year before that, and their streak is continuing this year with the newly announced LP…

Touche Amore – “Benediction” Video

2 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

One of my favorite albums of last year was Stage Four, the LP from the Los Angeles post-hardcore band Touché Amoré in which frontman Jeremy Bolm, in cathartic fashion, dealt with the death of his mother. It's a ridiculously powerful and bruising piece of work, and its videos have given that same feeling. In the…

Chrisette Michele – “No Political Genius”

2 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

This past weekend, the R&B singer Chrisette Michele sang at Donald Trump's inauguration, and after the announcement of her participation drew a predictable backlash, she addressed it in a strange statement. Now she's taken the kicker from that statement and turned it into a song. "No Political Genius" is really more of a spoken-word piece.

Drake has collaborated with almost every big name in hip-hop, but I don't remember him ever jumping on a track with Rae Sremmurd.

Melbourne rockers Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are announcing a new EP today, and judging by the title track it's going to be their best work yet. The French Press arrives in March; it follows last year's Talk Tight mini-album and includes the recent single "Julie's Place." But what's got me really excited for this project…
