Watch Barack Obama Sing “Uptown Funk” In Latest BaracksDubs

13 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Regardless of what you think of his politics, President Obama is a tremendous public speaker. He maintains his pauses long enough to optimize his word choice and give them maximum emphasis.

Arcade Fire member Will Butler’s solo record Policy is shaping up to be mighty intriguing. Lead single “Take My Side” was a wiry blast of garage rock, a sound Butler veers far away from on the album’s second single. “Anna” is a propulsive new wave track laden with horns, synths, a striking piano figure, and [...]
