Drake Can’t Handle Kinko’s Workplace Banter In This Cut SNL Sketch

Drake hosted Saturday Night Live for the second time a couple months ago. He oh-so-fittingly sang about memes and played a little black Jeopardy! in the episode, but not everything they wrote for Drizzy made it to the air. In this dress rehearsal sketch cut from the live show, he stars as Derek, a new […]

Pure Disgust – “Slander Me”

DC thrash-and-dash punks Pure Disgust jammed six punishing tunes into 10 minutes on their Chained EP last year. It seems like it will be more brutality on their upcoming self-titled debut LP. “Slander Me” is the first taste of the album — a taste in the same way you can taste your blood and feel […]

Brian Fresco – “Higher” (Feat. Chance The Rapper & Blue Hawaii)

Brian Fresco is a member of Chicago’s Save Money crew, and he’s recruited hometown hero Chance The Rapper for “Higher,” a track that’ll appear on his upcoming mixtape Casanova. Chance contributes a verse to the smooth dancehall-indebted song, which features a hook and additional vocals courtesy of Blue Hawaii, the Canadian duo made up of […]

The 10 Best DJ Shadow Songs

This year has to be a hectic one for DJ Shadow. As much as his new album The Mountain Will Fall deserves recognition on its own terms, its Brainfeeder-compatible art-beat minimalism — honed after an inspiring stint spinning DJ sets at Los Angeles’s Low End Theory — is a new form when too much of […]

Album Of The Week: Maxwell blackSUMMERS’night

Maxwell albums are like comets: They don’t appear often, but when they do, they have a way of reminding you how small you are in the vast scheme of the universe. A song like Maxwell’s version of Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work” feels like evidence of the existence of hyper-evolved human beings in the world. […]

Negative Gemini – Don't Worry Bout the Fuck I'm Doin

Thom Yorke Gives First A Moon Shaped Pool Interview

The UK music magazine Q once named OK Computer the greatest album of all time, and they’ve perched Radiohead’s 1997 classic atop multiple greatest-albums lists since then. So maybe it’s not surprising that Q is the first publication to interview Thom Yorke since the release of A Moon Shaped Pool. The big takeaway from Yorke’s […]

Nothing – “Nineteen Ninety Heaven (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)”

Nothing are Philadelphia hardcore-veteran tough guys, and Ryan Hemsworth is a fashionable Canadian producer. On the face of it, these guys don’t necessarily have too much in common. But they both make different kinds of sweeping, dreamy music — shoegaze for Nothing, hazy pop for Hemsworth. And they both have similar senses of wispy, floaty […]

50 Cent A Free Man After Paying $1100 Fine For Cursing In The Caribbean

Over the weekend, 50 Cent was arrested in the Caribbean after using profanity during his headlining set at the St. Kitts Music Festival. (The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis’ Small Charges Act makes it a misdemeanor to curse in a public forum.) According to Billboard, the rapper and his bodyguard, Bajar Walter, were held […]

Jidenna – “Chief Don’t Run”

The classic man has returned with another chief-themed song for the upcoming Long Live The Chief called “Chief Don’t Run.” Jidenna switches things up a bit on this one to show he far he’s come, from “sleeping on the floor with the oven door open” and “sitting with the hookers in the motel hallway” to […]

Watch Stephen Colbert’s Uncut Version Of Kanye West’s “Famous” Video

Late-night hosts must love Kanye West. Virtually everything he does is worthy of at least a monologue joke, if not a full comedy bit. And then there’s always the possibility that he’ll see the joke and launch a full-on Twitter feud, which of course leads to the viral reconciliation. West’s new controversy-grubbing “Famous” video is […]

Hush Moss – “Slowly Disappear” (Stereogum Premiere)

Berlin-based artist Hush Moss is all about nostalgia. Within seconds of hitting play on single “Slowly Disappear,” you are instantly transported back to the halcyon days of roller skates, coke mirrors, and discotheques. On his Captain Richard Beef/Young Yosef-produced debut album It Takes A Lot, Hush Moss shows off his nuanced and textural ’70s-inspired grooves […]

The Strokes – “Threat Of Joy” Video

Earlier this morning, the Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas showed up in Blood Orange’s “Augustine” video. And right now, his band has shared a new video of its own. “Threat Of Joy” is one of the three songs on the Strokes’ new surprise EP Future Present Past, and its video is a perfectly ridiculous pile-up of […]

New Austin Festival Sound On Sound Announces Inaugural Lineup

Graham Williams, the founder of Austin’s long-running and much-loved Fun Fun Fun Fest, recently split from Transmission Events, the concert-promoting company behind Fun Fun Fun Fest, and he started a new company called Margin Walker. Fun Fun Fun Fest may or may not still happen this year; we haven’t gotten word yet. But Williams has […]

Ice Choir – “Unprepared” (Stereogum Premiere)

Former Pains Of Being Pure At Heart drummer Kurt Feldman came out of the box strong with his shimmering ’80s pop project Ice Choir. 2012’s Afar earned Feldman a spot on our best new bands list that year. Since then he’s gone on to produce for the Dum Dum Girls, but we haven’t heard from […]

The Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb Announces Second Solo Album To Not Be Shelved

Barry Gibb, the majestic falsetto master and sole surviving member of the Bee Gees, has recorded at least three solo albums over the course of his long, estimable career. But only one of those albums, 1984’s Now Voyager has actually seen release. Today, Gibb announced that he’ll release a second one, entitled In The Now, […]

Joey Kramer’s Rockin’ & Roastin’ Café Should Be A Fine Place For Fans Of Aerosmith’s Drummer To Get Coffee

Joey Fatone’s slinging hot dogs, Joey Kramer’s brewing coffee, and we’re all just slowly hurtling towards the sun and eagerly awaiting civilization’s inevitable end. The Aerosmith drummer has been making his own line of coffee for a few years now — “shade grown,” not “sun grown,” for you coffee nuts out there — and later […]
