After A Decade, Where Is Mike Jones?

22 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

In his industrious resolve to deliver Houston hip-hop to the widest possible market in the mid-2000s, rapper Mike Jones assumed the role of carnival barker. The carnival, though, was Mike Jones himself. He yapped his name on every track he could, usually prefaced by a “Who?”, and doled out T-shirts emblazoned with his cell phone […]

23 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Busy weekend for music fans. There’s Coachella, again. If you’re going, or watching on AXS TV, we have some recommendations for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner will presumably sit this weekend out. Meanwhile Saturday is Record Store Day, a holiday that’s ultimately good for music retailers’ bottom lines, but not without […]

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

23 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

If you were some kind of underground artist making a video this week, it was hard to compete. A few big stars on big labels (or with big cable networks backing them) made videos so goofy and fun and entertaining that no indie type could afford to compete. And yet this week’s best video still […]

Watch Faith No More Debut “Sol Invictus” & “From The Dead” In Vancouver

23 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Faith No More’s comeback tour rolled into Vancouver last night, and the Canucks were rewarded with the debut of two new songs. “Sol Invictus,” the title track from their new album, is a slow-burner that builds and builds without ever quite boiling over, while “From The Dead” is, surprisingly, a jangly acoustic number. Watch fan-made […]

Dej Loaf – “Me U & Hennessy” Video

23 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Dej Loaf is a spitfire Detroit rapper best known for her no-fucks-given, ominous swag anthem “Try Me.” Her fabulous 2014 mixtape Sell Sole came on the heels of a record deal with Columbia, and that major label money is more than evident in the video for one of the tape’s more romantic tracks “Me U […]

23 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Justin Vernon’s inaugural Eaux Claires Festival will happen in his home state of Wisconsin in a few months.

Andreya Triana – “That’s Alright With Me”

23 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

British singer-songwriter Andreya Triana has been quiet since her 2010 debut, Lost Where I Belong. With only a few sporadic one-off tracks, features, and remixes floating in the infinite space of the internet, it was unclear if we would get a second full-length blessing. Then Triana announced her proper sophomore album, Giants, with the release […]

Tame Impala Hope People Don’t Think “‘Cause I’m A Man” Is Sexist

In a very, very extensive interview with Under The Radar, Kevin Parker opened up about the impetus behind his two newly-released songs from Tame Impala’s third album Currents, among other things. It’s a great profile and well worth checking out, but the most interesting parts are when Parker gets really personal about “Let It Happen” […]

Is This Crystal Castles’ New Singer?

Yesterday, Crystal Castles released a new song, “Frail” — which came as something of a shock, as the band’s vocalist, Alice Glass, announced her departure from the group last year, causing many people to believe Crystal Castles were done for good. That would have made sense: Crystal Castles were a duo made up of Glass […]

Ariel Pink’s Recording With Miley Cyrus & The Flaming Lips

Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips have had a random-ass collaborative mutual admiration society going for a while now; they’ve performed and recorded and made this terrible video together. And now they’ve added another buddy to their freak team, threatening to turn the thing into a musical supervillain society. Ariel Pink has lately been recording […]

Jay Z And Jack White Personally Calling Tidal Users To Say Thanks

Jay Z’s streaming music service, Tidal, has been subject to lots of criticism here and around the music industry.

Business Insider reports that Jay Z has been calling these people to […]

Wisconsin Clothing Company Makes Court-Ordered Apology To Don Henley, Promises To Take It Easy On The Shirt Puns

The Duluth Trading Company has been court-ordered to publicly apologize to Don Henley after advertising a t-shirt using the name of the Eagles founder without his permission. As far as shirts go, it’s about as inoffensive as can be, but it’s still illegal to co-opt a celebrity’s name without their permission, and Henley is notoriously […]

Watch Jenny Lewis Sing A Smooth-As-Hell “She’s Not Me” On The Late Late Show

Last weekend at Coachella, Jenny Lewis pretty much slayed, bringing HAIM and her old Rilo Kiley bandmate Blake Sennett to the stage and ending her set with a version of Rilo Kiley’s “A Better Son/Daughter” that I can’t stop thinking about. And last night, she used some of that long stretch between Coachella weekends to […]
