Stream Jazz Cartier Marauding In Paradise

On Marauding In Paradise, Jazz Cartier is playing fast and loose with afterlife mythology, mixing ancient symbolism with the arrogance required to catapult yourself out of obscurity. If that seems like a bizarre combination, well, it is, but Cartier is all about ungainly, odd juxtapositions that would fall apart if a less tenacious rapper tried […]

Stream Cloud Nothings Here And Nowhere Else (In Wingdings) Record Store Day Remix Album

Cloud Nothings released their sophomore record, Here And Nowhere Else, last year, and it ended up pretty highon our list of the 50 best albums of 2014. It’s an excellent record, one that deserved all of the attention that it got and one that will likely go down as some of the best true-to-form rock […]

Q&A: Best Coast On Their Weird Friendship, Ignoring Haters, And California Nights

Over the past month and a half, Best Coast have been teasing out new material from their upcoming California Nights, the group’s third proper full-length and first since signing with Harvest. So far we’ve had tastes of the record via the title track, “Heaven Sent,” and “Feeling OK” — songs that contrast blissed-out stoner majesty […]

Kanye West – “All Day (Remix)” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

A maddeningly short six-second snippet of Kendrick Lamar rapping over Kanye West’s “All Day” emerged last week, and now the full song is here. It’s basically the original “All Day” with Kendrick swapped in for Theophilus London (hooray!) and the wild meltdown from the end of the song chopped off (boo!). Allan Kingdom’s dancehall bits […]

Status Ain’t Hood: The Diverging Paths Of Chance The Rapper & Vic Mensa

For a while there, I was worried about Chance The Rapper. He’d come to national prominence in 2013 with Acid Rap, a mixtape that showed ridiculous levels of promise but also the sort of tendency toward self-indulgence that ruins a lot of rappers’ careers. Chance’s voice was a headlong hamster-squeak, a self-consciously grating yammer, and […]

Ty Dolla $ign – “Drop That Kitty” (Feat. Charli XCX & Tinashe) Video

Ty Dolla $ign has released a video for his single “Drop That Kitty,” featuring guest performers Tinashe and Charli XCX. Considering the fact that Charli XCX and Tinashe are two of the most promising young pop singers that Ty$ could’ve enlisted, the track falls a bit flat, relying way too much on a goofy euphemism […]

Honeyblood – “The Black Cloud”

Scottish duo Honeyblood introduced their brittle punk on last year’s self-titled debut, but they are back in 2015 with a vengeance. A few months ago they unleashed “No Big Deal” on the world. Sure, it pretends to swoon, but it’s all an act; this song’s gentle melody masks the process of kicking and bucking your […]

Owen Pallett – “The Sky Behind The Flag” Video

Owen Pallett’s sophomore solo album under his own name, the gorgeous, meticulous In Conflict, was one of 2014’s best. Today the Canadian musician and Arcade Fire collaborator released a video for one of the album’s tracks, “The Sky Behind The Flag.” Animated videos seem to be something of a thing this year, and this one […]

Evan Tyler and Topless Literati – You’re Hysterical

It doesn’t take too much noise to make a cult dance record and by that I mean it doesn’t need to thump thump you into dancefloor submission. All that is generally required is something just above the quietness of a mouse. You can goShow More Summary

Drake’s OVO Fest Denied Government Grant Money This Year

Last year, the provincial government of Ontario granted Drake $300,000 to help fund OVO Fest through their “Celebrate Ontario” program. Some people thought this was a good call, but others were pretty pissed off, because that is hella money being handed over to a dude who is always rapping about all of his money. Take […]

Stream Hiko Momoji’s Howl EP (Stereogum Premiere)

Hiko Momoji is a 19-year-old producer living in New York who first caught my ear on “Late Nights,” a seriously spectacular collaboration with Awful Records rappers Father and Abra. The track is one of five off his brief Howl EP, which we’re premiering today. The EP comes at an interesting time in Momoji’s trajectory — […]

Soak – “Blud” Video

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that Bridie Monds-Watson is only 18 years old. The teenage singer-songwriter is gearing up to release her debut album, and in the process traveled to America to perform for the first time. I saw her do “Blud” for her first technical stateside performance — at the illustrious Beggars Group offices […]
