White Lung – “Below” Video

“Below” is a song unlike anything that White Lung has ever done before, and it’s exhilarating because of it. It’s the unabashed anthem on Paradise, the band’s upcoming third album, and unlike their previous two records, there’s no hardcore influences to be found here. Maybe the switch-up comes as a little less of a surprise […]

Tegan and Sara have shared a video for their stellar new single “Boyfriend,” off their upcoming ninth studio album, Love You To Death.

The Gotobeds – “Brass Not Rash”

I’ve got a friend, a guy deep enough in the garage-rock universe that he hosts a community-radio show where he just plays fired-up rock songs from bands I’ve never heard of — who considers the Gotobeds the best rock band in the world right now. And the Pittsburgh punk band does seem to be on […]

Former Pedro The Lion leader David Bazan is back with a new solo album called Blanco next month. Recorded with Crystal Skulls co-founder Yuuki Matthews, it features a heavy dose of keyboards and drum machines alongside the mournful acoustic strums that have long been Bazan’s calling card, transforming tracks that were previously available through the […]

With You. is a new project led by the producer Switch, the M.I.A. collaborator who, once upon a time, was half of Major Lazer alongside Diplo.

Nicki Minaj Clowned The Vice President Again, This Time To His Wife’s Face

There was a weird little episode last year where Nicki Minaj accidentally dissed Vice President Joe Biden in the wake of his son Beau’s death.

Watch D’Angelo’s Devastating Prince Tribute On The Tonight Show

We’ve seen a whole lot of Prince tributes since the man passed away last week. We’ll see plenty more. I don’t know if we’ll see a better one than this. A few Prince songs have taken on an extra totemic power since we lost the man, none more so than “Sometimes It Snows In April,” […]

Pinegrove – Cardinal (album review)

3 days agoMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

I first heard of Pinegrove via Steven Hyden’s excellent Celebration Rock podcast. And the hard reality is that I only clicked on this podcast because he had Amber Webber from Black Mountain on. And man, did turn out to be fortuitous; as I was won over after his talk with the lead singer and chief [...]
