Built To Spill & Afghan Whigs Announce Co-Headlining Tour

5 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Built To Spill and Afghan Whigs are both popular alt-rock-adjacent entities with enough steam to endure beyond their legendary '90s runs and map out lengthy, rewarding careers. Both bands are awesome, and their fan bases likely overlap quite a bit. Yet I don't think I ever would have thought to pair them on a concert…

Moaning – “Artificial” Video

5 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Post-punk Moaning were founded in the LA DIY scene, a sensibility that carries into their reverb-laden sound. The trio is now ahead of their self-titled debut album after signing to Sub Pop in October; we heard the lead single, "Don't Go," in November, and today they've shared "Artificial" with an accompanying video. The song supports their band…

Album Of The Week: Closer All This Will Be

5 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

I don't know how or why the term "skramz" started. It's an ugly, clumsy word, but it's useful. Functionally, "skramz" pretty much means "what screamo used to be." The term "screamo" itself was a goofy little portmanteau, a cute way of describing all these late-'90s bands -- Orchid, Pg. 99, Antioch Arrow, Reversal Of Man,…

Hear Quavo’s Version Of The National Anthem

6 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last year, a fan put together a tongue-in-cheek online petition for Migos member Quavo to have a verse on the National Anthem. Quavo paid attention, and he did the petition one better. Yesterday, as The FADER reports, Quavo put together his own version of "The Star-Spangled Banner," keeping some of the melody but changing the…

The song is a wistful rumination about the kind of repetitive behaviors…

6 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Montreal-based Look Vibrant have been experimenting with noise and indie-pop since 2013, and now they've refined their sound with "My Nerves," the lead single from their upcoming debut LP The Up Here Place. Clamoring guitars mix with Matt Murphy's falsetto while eager hands destroy a sprinkled cake and play Cheerio-covered drums in the visual treatment.

Primal Rite – “Bow To No One”

6 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last year, the thrash-influenced San Francisco hardcore wreckers Primal Rite burst onto the scene with their excellent Sensory Link To Pain EP. Next week, they'll release Dirge Of Escapism, their full-length debut; we've posted the early track "Antivenom." But before the album track is out in the world, the band has just shared a new…

Artist To Watch: Haley Heynderickx

To write "Untitled God Song," Haley Heynderickx had to get away from God's creation. "I was living with a friend and very self-conscious because we had very thin walls," says the Portland singer-songwriter. "I had a feeling with this song that I didn’t want anyone to hear it, so I would run to the basement…

Bleachers – “Alfie’s Song (Not So Typical Love Song)”

7 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last year, when he wasn't producing big albums from pop stars, Jack Antonoff put in a whole lot of time with his band Bleachers, releasing the album Gone Now. And now there's a new Bleachers song, one that seems pretty starkly different from the soul-baring arena-pop he's been making lately. "Alfie's Song (Not So Typical…
