Battles – “FF Bada”

Battles will release their third album, La Di Da Di, later this month. So far, we’ve gotten a lot of bonus features and not so many songs: there was the 20-minute documentary and the extended live session live stream. But, finally, two weeks ago we got the first official, recorded single with “The Yabba,” and […]

Brian Carpenter & The Confessions – “Beautiful Jane” (Stereogum Premiere)

Boston musician Brian Carpenter is one of those guys who has worked with so many big names that he seems bound to become a big name himself. Swans, Marc Ribot, Harvey Pekar, and Colin Stetson are among Carpenter’s collaborators, and his own music with Brian Carpenter & The Confessions exudes the sort of dignified darkness […]

Disgruntled VMA-Nominated Director Had A Shitty Time On His Crowdfunded Night Out

Remember that VMA-nominated director Josh Forbes who was forced to crowdfund his $450-$800 ticket to the illustrious MTV ceremony? Well, he managed to afford attending the show, but he still had a shitty, shitty time. Though he normally...Show More Summary

Watch Eagles Of Death Metal Wear Silly Costumes In Zipper Down Promo Video

Josh Homme and Jesse Hughes, the two co-conspirators in the band Eagles Of Death Metal, already proved themselves willing to look faintly ridiculous in their video for the new single “Complexity.” But in a new comedy-sketch promo video for Zipper Down, their forthcoming album, they took it a lot further than that, going absolutely over-the-top […]

Donald Trump Encourages Kanye West Presidential Campaign

Kanye West made an epic speech at the VMAs last Sunday, in which he stated that he will be running for president in 2020. Whether or not he was serious is up for debate, but many would argue that Kanye should jump into this dismal election cycle rather than wait around for the next. After […]

Tinashe – “Bet” / “Feels Like Vegas” Video

Tinashe released her great debut, Aquarius, almost a year ago, but she’s still churning out videos for that album’s tracks. Today, she’s just shared videos for the Dev Hynes-featuring “Bet” and “Feels Like Vegas” in the form a new “short film” entitled All In Good Time. We’ve already seen that Tinashe is a hell of […]

Los Colognes – “Golden Dragon Hut” (Stereogum Premiere)

Los Colognes are a bluesy folk-rock six-piece who lean hard on Dire Straits’ back catalog and used to earn their keep in Nashville by performing as a backing band for solo artists in need of a full band. One such artist in need was Caitlin Rose, who introduced me to Los Colognes’ loose, jazzy flow […]

Wand – “Dungeon Dropper”

Cory Hanson, a member of both Meatbodies and Ty Segall’s backing band, also leads the prolific L.A. psych-rock power trio Wand. The band has a new album called 1000 Days coming out this fall, and we’ve already posted the early track “Stolen Footsteps.” They’ve now shared “Dungeon Dropper,” a total fuzz-rock pedal-masher, via NPR. It’s […]

Martin Courtney – “Northern Highway” Video

Martin Courtney is the last Real Estate member to embark on a solo career, but he got there eventually. Last month, he shared “Vestiges,” and today he’s announced his debut album, Many Moons, and shared a new single, “Northern Highway.” The new song comes along with a video directed by Rob Hatch-Miller and PUloma Basu […]

Dev Hynes Quits Social Media

Broad, sweeping statements about the impact of a young artist always tend to come off a little disingenuous, but the impact that Dev Hynes has had on music and our culture is hard to overstate. Not only is he a brilliant musician, producer, collaborator, and solo artist, but he tackles significant social and political issues […]

Grubs – “Nuffin” (Stereogum Premiere)

All the songs we’ve heard from UK trio Grubs so far — “Windwaker,” “Dec 15th,” and “Gym Shame” — have had the same type of even keel that’s just so enjoyable to kick back and relax to. “Nuffin” continues that trend — the way their their voices melt together, how all the notes kind of […]

Stream Sivyj Yar Burial Shrouds (Stereogum Premiere)

We regularly feature metal from all over the world on our monthly metal column, The Black Market, ranking songs by bands from Finland next to those from Australia, the United States, China … and in one instance, a band from the United States that pretended to be from China. It’s somewhat rare we get a […]

Watch A Trailer For Inventions’ New EP Blanket Waves

Inventions is the atmospheric organic-ambient duo of Eluvium’s Matthew T. Cooper and Explosions In The Sky member Mark T. Smith. The duo might have started out as a side thing, but the two of them have been way busier with Inventions than they have been with their other projects lately. In two years, Inventions have […]

Phil Collins Recreates His Iconic Album Covers For First-Ever Deluxe Reissues

The world is ready for the critical reappraisal of solo Phil Collins. I’m not saying we need to assign canonical worth to the Tarzan, soundtrack or whatever, but “In The Air Tonight”? “Take Me Home”? “Against All Odds”? The man had jams, intensely emotive and expensive-sounding synth-rockers that were leagues removed from the things his […]

Conner Youngblood – Stockholm

After a year-long hiatus, which feels like forever in online terms, Walrus favourite Conner Youngblood is back with Stockholm. Conner Youngblood – Stockholm was originally published on The Blue Walrus.

Watch Vince Staples Play The Tonight Show With Jhené Aiko & The Roots

The airy R&B singer Jhené Aiko is really the only famous guest on Vince Staples’ excellent new album Summertime ’06. And “Lemme Know,” the track that features her appearance, isn’t the sort of thing that becomes a hit. It’s a sleepy, murmuring meditation on sex and relationships that has Staples and Aiko reciting their lines […]

Bikini Kill – “Ocean Song”

Bikini Kill are reissuing their 1991 debut demo tape Revolution Girl Style Now in a few weeks, and the reissue will include three previously unreleased songs. We’ve already heard one, the grungy “Playground, and now the band have shared another, “Ocean Song,” along with a new interview on The New York Times’ T Magazine. “To […]
