3 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Wilco's Jeff Tweedy attended the Women's March on Saturday, and posted a photo of him and his wife to the band's social media accounts, which apparently drew the ire of some less-than-savory characters who criticized the musician's involvement in politics. Today, he posted a letter addressing the "fellow citizens who are being mean in our…’s Advice For Charli XCX’s New Album: “Just Say Random Words. Nobody Listens To The Verse.”

We caught up with Charli XCX at the end of 2016, and here in 2017 she's continuing to give interviews promoting her upcoming album. One such conversation appeared in the pages of British music mag Q, but Charli was kind enough to share it on Facebook today. Probably the most intriguing remark involves her experience…

Soulja Boy has been charged with the possession of an assault weapon and felony possession of a firearm, according to TMZ, which stems from the rapper's arrest in December for violating his probation.

Meatbodies – “Haunted History”

4 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

San Francisco's Meatbodies released last month "Creature Feature," the lead single off their upcoming concept LP ALICE, and today we get our second taste of the new album. "Haunted History" is a perfectly crusty nugget of garage-rock, drenched in so much fuzz the bass and guitar become virtually indistinguishable. The drums sound like fissures cracking…

The new underground rock supergroup Crystal Fairy boasts a deeply impressive lineup: longtime Melvins Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover, At The Drive-In/Mars Volta co-frontman Omar Rodríguez-López, and Le Butcherettes leader Teri Gender Bender.

Wire – “Short Elevated Period”

4 hours 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

6 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”

7 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.

7 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

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. So it's somewhat surprising to learn that Drizzy joined the Brothers Sremm on stage in Amsterdam last night to perform "Fake Love" and "Jumpman." Check out footage of his guest spot below…
