Camera Shy – “Colors Radiate”

3 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Alexandra Morte and Nick Bassett began working together in Whirr, but their indie-pop project, Camera Shy, veers off into sweeter, lilting territory. This is just one of many musical projects for Bassett, who is also the bassist for Nothing and formerly was a member of the excellent metal/shoegaze band Deafheaven. Back to the present: Morte […]

3 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Jamie xx’s dark horse of an electronic pop album, In Colour, drops today — in fact, it’s our Album Of The Week! — and today he made an appearance on France’s nightly news and talk show, Le Grand Journal. He was joined by his xx bandmates Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim, Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, […]

Class Actress – “More Than You” Video

3 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

A few weeks back, Class Actress released her glitzy, reinvigorated new track “More Than You” after a four year break following her debut album, Rapprocher. The new video for the track capitalizes on Elizabeth Harper’s glossier sound, setting her up as a femme fatale against a backdrop of bold colors, neon lights, and ostentatious decor. […]

Album Of The Week: Jamie xx In Colour

3 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

When Jamie xx played Coachella, people danced. Maybe that shouldn’t be surprising; Jamie xx is, at least on the face of it, a famous dance music producer who made a Drake/Rihanna hit once. But Jamie xx makes wallflower music, and a festival like Coachella is not traditionally kind to people who make wallflower music. The […]

Gallant :: Learn to Fly (Foo Fighters Cover)

The first time I discovered Gallant was Springtime last year with his debut EP, Zebra.  There was something about the track “Jupiter Grayscale” produced by UK’s Maths Time Joy… that was so powerfully intimate and emotionally painful in Gallant’s falsetto that his story felt like a beautiful heartbreak. Gallant – Jupiter Grayscale (prod. Maths Time Joy) +++ […]

Pusha T Calls Out Virginia Venue For Being Racist

4 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Pusha T posted several Instagram photos today challenging the Virginia Beach sports bar Venue 112 for racial discrimination. In the posts, Pusha T states that he heard someone at the Virginia Beach venue tell the doorman not to let the G.O.O.D. music rapper and his friends in and that the club was on “guest list […]

Omar Souleyman – “Bahdeni Nami” (Prod. Four Tet) Video

4 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Omar Souleyman has collaborated with a number of major producers, but his biggest success came in the form of 2013’s Wenu Wenu, which the Syrian musician co-produced with Four Tet. The last we heard from Souleyman was back in March, when he dropped the Modeselektor-produced single “Enssa El Ataab,” but today he’s back with a […]

Stream J Fernandez Many Levels Of Laughter

5 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

If I were to describe the level of laughter that J Fernandez’s new album generates, I’d put it in the low chuckle range. His lo-fi take on baroque bedroom-pop is covered in squiggly analogue fuzz, like on “Holy Hesitation” but branches off into everything from free-jazz interpolations on “Filled With Joy” to the uneasy MIDI […]

Watch Pixies Debut “Um Chagga Lagga” In NYC

6 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Pixies debuted a new song, “Um Chagga Lagga,” at New York’s Beacon Theatre on 5/26, and today, Rolling Stone posted two videos of the band playing a live session, one of which was a rendition of the track. Though the song still hasn’t been recorded, it’s safe to say that it’s been a work-in-progress for […]

William Tyler – “The Sleeping Prophet” Video

6 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

William Tyler’s 2013 album, Impossible Truth, was one of the first things I ever wrote about at Stereogum, so I’m always going to have a special place for him in this not-so-sentimental heart of mine. Tyler’s music inspires a sense of longing for a simpler lifestyle, and if I listen to it on certain days, […]

The Rolling Stones – “Brown Sugar” (Alternate Version Feat. Eric Clapton)

6 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The Rolling Stones are releasing a remastered version of their classic 1971 album Sticky Fingers. To that end, they’ve previously shared the extended version of “Bitch,” and today you can hear an alternate version of “Brown Sugar” that features Eric Clapton on guitar. The album is available as a straight remastered reissue and in deluxe […]

Ride @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg, Brooklyn 6/1/15

6 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

I had a chance to see Ride last Friday, and I passed on it. I thought I’d probably have a chance to go to last night’s Music Hall Of Williamsburg show when I got back to New York, and Run The Jewels and Ride were a tough conflict to resolve, even though I’d seen RTJ […]

Christopher Owens recently shared a surprise new album called Chrissybaby Forever. We talked to him at length about the record and his life, which you can read here. Today he’s released a self-directed video to accompany one of the album’s most poignant tracks, “To Take Care Of Myself Again.” It takes the concept of self-care […]

Jawbreaker Reunion – “Your X” (Stereogum Premiere)

7 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Around this time last year, we named Jawbreaker Reunion a band to watch based on the strength of their incisive and wickedly fun debut album, Lutheran Sisterhood Gun Club. Since then, I’ve seen them live a handful of times, and each performance has been better than the last — they’ve grown as musicians and as […]

Holly Herndon – “Morning Sun” Video

7 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Holly Herndon’s impressionistic new record, Platform, was released last month, and if you take time to listen beyond her glitchy, unconventional beat-reordering, it becomes clear that the composer’s songs are imbued with layers of deeper meaning. Show More Summary

Future – “No Compadre” Video

8 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Future and DJ Esco dropped their 56 Nights mixtape back in March, and since then, the rapper has been opening for Drake on his If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late tour. While touring, Future made this black-and-white video for the 56 Nights track “No Compadre,” featuring shots of him performing and chilling backstage. If […]

Tom Petty – “Somewhere Under Heaven”

8 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

One of the great things about rock stars growing old is they begin to buy into their own mythologies. This spurs them to release things like Tom Petty’s new collection, Wildflowers – All The Rest: a bunch of songs he wrote from 1992-1994 that didn’t quite make it onto Wildflowers proper. Since that’s my second-favorite […]
