Montreal shoegazers No Joy got Lansing-Dreiden/Violens mastermind and Ariel Pink collaborator Jorge Elbrecht to produce their new EP Creep. And while we've already posted the early track "Califone," you can hear Elbrecht's influence at work a little more in the excellent new track "Hellhole," which combines shimmering synthy textures and disorienting studio effects with the…

They REALLY fucking matter. Kreator are one of them. Another is Body Count, Ice-T's metal side project…

Today we get a seventh -- this one's called "'81 How to Play the Synthesizer," and it…

Premature Evaluation: Dirty Projectors Dirty Projectors

Dirty Projectors' first new album in five years is stunningly evocative and wildly inventive, the sort of boundary-pushing album that comes along pretty infrequently. (Bon Iver's 22, A Million is one in recent memory; Art Angels another.) Oddly enough, in this case the boundary push evolves out of Longstreth revisiting a lot of past Dirty…

Parquet Courts – “Captive Of The Sun (Remix)” (Feat. Bun B)

The members of the New York postpunk band Parquet Courts grew up in Texas, and they love the shit out of Texas rap. Last year, they got to actually do something with that love, when they performed a new version of "Captive Of The Sun," a song from their great Human Performance album, on Colbert.

Read the introductory paragraph of Solange's eulogy below and…

Karen Elson – “Call Your Name”

"Call Your Name" is not just a gorgeously cascading, ornately constructed folk-rock sigh; it also appears to be an example of elite-level trolling. Karen Elson, the singer-songwriter who recorded the track for her new album Double Roses, used to be married to Jack White. Documents from their divorce hearings famously spotlighted White's distaste for the…
