Last week, the Indiana producer Jlin released Black Origami, a merciless and uncompromising album that twists Chicago's jittery footwork music into strange new shapes. And now, as SPIN points out, she's shared a video for the album track "Carbon 7" that's just as strange and uncompromising as the music. Director Joji Koyama films dancer and…

14 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

A guest feature from Justin Bieber helped propel Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s "Despacito" to become the first Spanish-language #1 single since "Macarena" in 1996, but you shouldn't expect Bieber to break out the Spanish parts on the song live any time soon judging by his pitiful spontaneous performance of it a New York club…

This summer, EMA is coming back with the new album Exile In The Outer Ring. The new album follows up 2014's great The Future's Void, and she's said it was "too political" for her old label Matador.

14 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

2 Chainz was on The View this morning promoting his forthcoming album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, which resulted in the rap veteran talking politics and hip-hop with none other than Ohio Governor John Kasich.

15 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

It's been five long months since Gucci Mane released his last proper album The Return Of East Atlanta Santa. In Gucci Time, that is an eternity, even if Gucci has released a ton of new music since that album came out. Thankfully, our long Gucci drought will end on Friday. As The FADER points out,…

Pinact – “Seams”

15 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Pinact are a Glasgow punk band with major melodic songwriting gifts. On their debut album Stand Still And Rot, those instincts manifested something like Fidlar's shout-along party music slathered in Dinosaur Jr.'s sonic sludge, but it appears they've cleaned up their sound a bit for sophomore album The Part That Know One Knows. New single…

CHUCK, the final album by the late Chuck Berry, is coming in a few weeks. We've already heard "Big Boys" and "Wonderful Woman," and today a third advance track called "Lady B.

The Weeknd's XO label just launched a SoundCloud page, and apparently the people behind the label decided to do so in the grandest fashion possible. One of the first two tracks on the page is a massive 12-minute remix of "Tell Your Friends," the Kanye West-produced single from 2015's Beauty Behind The Madness. The remix…
