Parallel Universe

Kraftwerk - "Autobahn" [Buy] I had to move my 1998 Subaru Legacy because there was a street cleaning on my street. I found another parking spot just next block. It was quite tight in between shiny SUVs like some Class...

Frameworks – “Purge” Video

Crunchy Gainesville, Florida punks Frameworks are set to release their latest full-length, Smother, this summer. We’ve already heard lead single “Tangled,” and today they follow up with “Purge” and a visual accompaniment. The song is a clamorous, crashing, rhythmic assault with frontman Luke Pate’s gravelly wails smacking you in the face. The video features the […]

Loudon Wainwright III – “I Had A Dream”

Today, Donald Trump clinched the Republican presidential nomination despite the musical community’s outcry against him. Earlier this week, the Weeknd and rapper Belly refused to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! when they learned that Trump would appear on the show that night as well. We’ve had YG and Nipsey Hussle bluntly say “FDT (Fuck Donald […]

Stream Brenda’s Friend House Down

Last year, Bloomington, Indiana-based musicians Amy Oelsner and Erin Tobey first teamed up under the name Brenda’s Friend for their debut tape, Under The Shrub. The duo’s follow-up, House Down, sees them even more comfortably playing off each other’s unique songwriting sensibilities: the title track and “Who Who” show off their pricklier side; “Sponge” and […]

Maxwell – “Lake By The Ocean” Video

Earlier this year, R&B virtuoso Maxwell released “Lake By The Ocean,” his first new track since 2009’s BLACKsummers’night and the lead single to blackSUMMERS’night, the sequel to the first installment that has been seven years in the making. Today, he’s shared a beautifully-shot video for the track, which follows a woman as she hitchhikes from […]

Gucci Mane Has Been Freed From Prison

But now, after serving 24 months of his 39-month sentence, he’s been released, as The FADER reports. It’ll be fascinating to see how he returns to […]

The Strokes – “The Threat Of Joy”

Three new Strokes songs in one day! Remember just a few hours ago when we had no new Strokes songs?! This morning, we found out that the New York band was releasing a new EP, Future Present Past, next Friday, and heard what we thought was lead single “OBLIVIUS.” But then just a short while […]

A$AP Ferg – “Yammy Gang” (Feat. A$AP Mob & Tatiana Paulino) Video

A$AP Ferg released his Always Strive And Prosper album last month, and while it wasn’t exactly a crew affair, one song did team him up with the rest of his Harlem-based A$AP Mob crew. “Yammy Gang” is a sort of posse-cut dedication to the fallen mastermind A$AP Yams, and it features the rest of the […]

Air – “Adis Abebah”

Two weeks from now and 20 years after their international debut, French band Air will release a double-LP anthology titled, fittingly, TWENTYEARS. The anthology includes a greatest hits selection from the band’s catalog plus rarities and previously unreleased material. Show More Summary

Is Hard Rock About To Roar Back Into The Mainstream?

Hard rock is not dead; it has merely retreated to the range to plot its comeback. Although metal has never been pop the way Madonna, ‘N Sync, or Taylor Swift are pop, for decades the genre’s most accessible bands maintained a strong presence in the musical mainstream. From genre originators Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath […]

The 10 Best Sufjan Stevens Songs

Conventional wisdom states that Undisputed Era Of The Album took place in the 1970s. But thanks to technological circumstances and the growth in popularity of independent labels, the first decade of the 2000s was arguably just as grand an era for the album as any other — not financially-speaking, no; but in terms of offering […]

Yung – “Commercial”

Last year, we made the Danish DIY punks Yung a Band To Watch on the strength of their head-turning EP These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores. Next month, they’ll follow it up with their full-length debut A Youthful Dream, and we’ve already posted their songs “Pills,” “Uncombed Hair,” and “The Child.” This afternoon, they shared […]

Q&A: Jim James On The It Still Moves Reissue, A New Solo LP, And What’s Next for My Morning Jacket

Tomorrow, My Morning Jacket are releasing a deluxe reissue of their sprawling, beloved 2003 album, It Still Moves. The package includes frontman Jim James’ original acoustic demos for the songs that made the album, as well as three outtakes. But for James, the main impetus for the project was to go back and remix the […]

Car Seat Headrest Expands On Licensing Fiasco, Recall Cost Matador Over $50k

Last Friday, Car Seat Headrest released the digital version of the new LP Teens Of Denial, one of the year’s best indie rock records. It would’ve been even better if band mastermind Will Toledo didn’t have to change things around at the last second. As previously reported, the band had used pieces of the Cars […]

Gorgeous Bully – “Just Like Before” (Stereogum Premiere)

Gorgeous Bully — the Manchester-based bedroom pop project fronted by Thomas Crang — has the sort of Bandcamp back catalog that’s both intimidatingly extensive and satisfyingly rich, built up over six years of steady releases. Next up for the band is a split 7? with friends, fellow Brits, and one-time Band To Watch Something Anorak. […]
