Cakes Da Killa – “Up Out My Face” (Feat. Peaches)

Queer New Jersey spitfire Cakes Da Killa is set to drop Hedonism next month. The album is shaping up to be more of the sharp-tongued, hard-edged club rap that we’ve come to expect from the incongruously named Cakes. The latest taste of the album comes in the form of the attitudinal “Up Out My Face” […]

Watch Band Of Horses Blaze Through “Casual Party” On The Tonight Show

Last night was a big one for comforting roots-rock on late-night TV. Wilco played Colbert and did a couple of comedy bits, while Band Of Horses, their peers in warm-and-easy festival-friendly guitar rock, did musical-guest duty on The Tonight Show. Playing “Casual Party,” the first single from their newish album Why Are You OK, Band […]

Watch Banks & Steelz Perform “Giant” On Corden

Ray LaMontagne Cancels UT-Austin Show Over Campus Gun Law

Stream Jenny Hval Blood Bitch

Norwegian experimentalist Jenny Hval’s latest album, Blood Bitch, is a haunting, compelling listen. It’s an album centered around blood and menstruation via an amalgam of vampire mythology and horror films from the ’70s; it takes a while to unspool that narrative from the album’s 10 tracks, but even before you get there, it’s apparent that […]

Stream Drive-By Truckers American Band

The veteran Southern rockers Drive-By Truckers are now 11 albums deep into a long career, and they deserve credit for finding ways to stay inspired that entire time. On their new album American Band, out next week, they’ve taken a look around and considered the state of the country around them. American Band is an […]

James Blake

James Blake’s North American tour begins this weekend in Dallas, but he stopped off in New York first to perform on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Watch Wilco Perform “Someone To Lose,” Avoid Didgeridoo Jam Session On Colbert

Wilco just released their new album Schmilco, and frontman Jeff Tweedy also just gamely participated in a Late Show With Stephen Colbert bit about how all of Wilco’s album titles are trash. Tweedy, of course, has been a regular guest on Colbert’s show since the Colbert Report days. And last night, Wilco served as the […]

MONO – “Requiem For Hell”

In preparation for their ninth full-length album Requiem For Hell, Japanese post-rockers MONO have delivered a slow-burning second single of the same name (following August’s “Ely’s Heartbeat“). In a perfectly-paced eight minutes, the...Show More Summary

Stream Pixies Head Carrier

A new Pixies album might not mean the same thing today as it would’ve meant 25 years ago. But Pixies remain one of the most important bands in the history of American underground rock, and there’s something inspiring about the way they continue to crank out new music even as they battle issues like guitarist […]

The Weeknd – “Starboy” (Feat. Daft Punk)

And as it turns out, “Starboy” is the Weeknd’s previously reported collaboration with Daft Punk, who lend some robotic backing vocals to the chorus while […]
