Aphex Twin Is Releasing A Syro Bonus Track On White Label 12?

9 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

After a decade-long hiatus, we’ve got an avalanche of new music from Aphex Twin. It’s been an almost overwhelming return, between last year’s SYRO, follow-up EP Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2, the long-lost Caustic Window LP, and that trove of SoundCloud tracks. The latest new music from Richard D. James comes in bite-size form: He’s […]

9 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The Very Best, the duo of Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya and Swedish producer Johan Hugo, have a new album called Makes A King coming out next month. Their new video for “Let Go,” which features Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio on bass, follows the clip for “Hear Me” that they released last year. In the new […]

Band To Watch: American Wrestlers + “There’s No One Crying Over Me Either” (Stereogum Premiere)

9 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Gary McClure’s dexterous, lo-fi project American Wrestlers began as an idle way to pass the time. McClure is a music industry veteran who’s been making music for 20+ years, but the eight-song self-titled album he thrust out into the universe last fall as a free release on Bandcamp was an act of desperation, not ambition. […]

Scott Weiland Explains Why Grandaddy Is One Of His Favorite Bands

9 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Grandaddy and Stone Temple Pilots were two of my favorite bands circa 2000, and I’m happy to report that they like each other, too. Actually, I can’t confirm how Jason Lytle feels about STP, but Scott Weiland apparently is a big fan of Grandaddy. Weiland told Esquire about his 10 favorite bands, and Grandaddy made […]

Blood Sister – “Ghost Pussy” (Stereogum Premiere)

9 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

San Francisco post-punkers Blood Sister write wonderfully discordant rock songs that sting and soothe all at once. Their new single, “Ghost Pussy” is a twisted, overdriven episode that threatens to derail itself with each repetition of its crunchy, off-center guitar riff. Instead, it cakes on more and more distortion, letting off only after a final […]

Paridolia – “Violent I” (Stereogum Premiere)

9 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

“Violent I” is one of the many highlights from Paridolia’s new Little Beauty release, a collection of unassuming songs from the upstate New York duo that feels like it rarely travels above a whisper. Even when it does, like on “Violent I,” everything lands with a soft thud, enveloped by a sense of warmth and […]

Violent Reaction – “Marching On”

9 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

I can’t be the only person who read Kelefa Sanneh’s recent New Yorker piece on New York hardcore and thought, “Goddam, I need to listen to more hardcore.” The big problem there: Turnstile, the one current band mentioned in the New Yorker piece, sound a little too close to 311 for comfort. So, as an […]

Yipi ki-yay

YipiOK From: London, England Tonight we have a dash of slightly skewed alt pop to get your blood pumping. Tango from London duo YipiOK is quirkier than a cosplaying pensioner on a segway. It sounds like Louis XIV (the band not the monarch) having a bash at a Sparks b-side. Listen Visit YipiOK - Facebook See YipiOK Tango

We’ve been blessed with a lot of new stuff from PC Music lately, including A.G. Cook’s new one with Hannah Diamond “Drop FM” and details on the label’s SXSW showcase. Today GFOTY and Spinee have released a new compilation called Dog Food Mix 1 that sounds like it’s mostly GFOTY songs remixed by Spinee or […]

Mitski – “Francis Forever (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

10 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last year, Mitski released her third full-length, Bury Me At Makeout Creek, which earned a spot on our 50 Best Albums list and grew to be one of my favorite records of the year. The Brooklyn-based musician has since announced that she’s signed to Don Giovanni, and recently traveled upstate to record a new album. […]

Antemasque Accused Of Throwing Boiling Water At Fans

10 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The former At The Drive-In and Mars Volta frontman Cedric Bixler Zavala is famous for his theatrical onstage freakouts. At a recent festival show in New Zealand, Bixler Zavala may have taken this tendency way, way too far. According to people at the show, he hurled boiling water into the show’s front row, injuring a […]

The Week In Pop: Kelly Clarkson’s Edgeless Excellence Continues

10 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Kelly Clarkson started out with negative cred. In 2002, Clarkson became the first winner of American Idol, which made her wildly famous and deathly uncool. This was before poptimism, and although Idol was an massive ratings success, the average critical line was something like THIS POP STAR FACTORY IS AN AFFRONT TO GOOD TASTE THEY […]

Q&A: Carly Rae Jepsen On Her All-Star Indie Collaborators And Really, Really, Really Anticipated New Album

10 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Following up a juggernaut like “Call Me Maybe” has got to be intimidating. There hasn’t been a song like that since, one that was so immediately pervasive and so utterly inescapable. The second that track hit, through a series of almost chance circumstances, it was swept up into the zeitgeist and spit out into ubiquity. […]

Thee Oh Sees – “Web” + Mutilator Defeated At Last Details

10 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Less than a year ago, Thee Oh Sees released their punk-oriented psych record Drop, but the band has wasted no time announcing its follow-up. Mutilator Defeated At Last will drop in May on Castle Face Records, and “Web” is the album’s opening track and debut single, which the band has been performing live for quite […]

Bright Like The Sun – “White Lights” (Stereogum Premiere)

10 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

When you’re in the right mood, there’s nothing better than a good post-rock song. The best of them make you feel like you’re a little speck on a great plain, but that the great distance is possible to traverse against all odds. It’s melodramatic music, the kind that moves mountains and evaporates oceans. And it’s […]

We named Twin Peaks a Band To Watch last summer in conjunction with the release of their debut LP, Wild Onion. The Chicago-based band just put out the album’s demos as a free download titled Mind Frames, calling it, “A glimpse into the bedroom feels of each songwriter and hopefully a treat for everyone.” You […]
