Nocando – “Alaska”

The hook for Nocando’s latest song nicks a line that’s been so overused it barely counts as a hook anymore: “I fell in love with a stripper.” But “Alaska” travels into colder territory from there, half lamenting, half skewering the ensuing relationship. As always, his wordplay is crisp and aggressive, interpolating words of loneliness to […]

In the Largehearted Word series, the staff of Brooklyn's WORD bookstore highlights several new books released this week. WORD Bookstores are independent neighborhood bookstores in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and Jersey City, New Jersey. Our primary goal is to be whatever...

Zombi – “Shadow Hand”

Moody Pittsburgh electronic duo Zombi are coming out with a new record next month called Shape Shift, and we’ve posted two tracks from it so far: “Mission Creep” and “Pillars Of The Dawn.” The next song they’ve shared from it is called “Shadow Hand,” and the quietly rhythmic track feels like it could serve as […]

Watch A Trailer For Tyler, The Creator’s Cartoon Series The Jellies

Tyler The Creator’s Adult Swim sketch comedy show Loiter Squad was cancelled last year after its third season, but the rapper/artist/jack-of-all-trades hasn’t had his fill of the TV world yet. His next project is an animated series about a jellyfish family called The Jellies — it was co-written by Lionel Boyce and animated by Augenblick […]

Coachella Producers Reportedly Planning Festival In Queens

Rumor has it that AEG Live — the production company that hosts Coachella and Firefly — has been in talks with the city of New York in the hopes that they will be able to put on a brand new music fest in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. If you’re unfamiliar with the borough of Queens’ […]


Yesterday, SOPHIE announced his first singles collection, PRODUCT, which contains the previously-released “Bipp,” “Elle,” “Lemonade,” and “Hard,” plus four new tracks. The announcement was paired with the launch of an elaborate new merchandise shop, which featured a vinyl collection of all of the singles, a silicon bubble case CD package, some fashion-geared items like a […]

Lana Del Rey – “Music To Watch Boys To” Video

In her great “High By The Beach” video, Lana Del Rey blew up a paparazzi helicopter with a grenade launcher. That’s a hard act to follow. She doesn’t do anything nearly as spectacular in her new video for “Music To Watch Boys To,” another single from her glamorously bored new album Honeymoon. Instead, she and […]

The Black Market: The Month In Metal – September 2015

A few weeks back, I came across the following YouTube video. It’s an 8-bit, early video game-style rendition of “Chapel Of Ghouls,” one of death-metal greats Morbid Angel’s signature tunes. As you can imagine, it sounds pretty weird, especially if you know the original: That such covers exist isn’t surprising — 8-bit reworkings of all […]

Carly Rae Jepsen Cast In Fox’s Live Grease Musical

In an effort to replicate the success that NBC had with their live musical broadcasts of Peter Pan and The Sound Of Music, FOX announced earlier this year that they’d be putting on a performance of Grease, and it’s just been revealed that Carly Rae Jepsen will be joining the cast in the role of […]

J Fernandez – “Between The Channels” Video

J Fernandez makes the sort of hazy, golden-tinged bedroom pop that you either love or hate. I happen to love it, specifically “Between The Channels,” a mumbly, jangly track off his debut album Many Levels Of Laughter. Now, the track has a warped video to go along with the wandering melody. Watch below. Many Levels […]

Levitation Fest 2016 Lineup Has Pet Sounds, AnCo, FlyLo

Levitation Fest will return to Austin in the spring of 2016 (4/29-5/1 to be exact) with a beyond impressive lineup. Headlining the bill is Brian Wilson performing all of Pet Sounds alongside Al Jardine, as well as Animal Collective, Flying Lotus, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Sleep, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Ty Segall, Black Mountain, and Uncle […]

Antony Calls Pope Francis “Shameful And Pathetic” For Meeting With Kim Davis

Since ascending to the Catholic Church’s highest seat, Pope Francis has earned the “Cool Pope” nickname for generally being a whole lot more progressive than just about any of his predecessors. But the Catholic Church is still the fucking Catholic Church. And during his visit to the U.S. last week, Pope Francis reportedly met with […]

Watch Ed Sheeran Have A Guy’s Eye Gouged Out On The Bastard Executioner

Last month we learned boyish British folk-pop superstar Ed Sheeran would be playing an “ambitious and deadly” medieval knight on The Bastard Executioner, the new FX drama from Sons Of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter. Now SPIN has directed us to video evidence of this unlikely turn. In the footage below, Sheeran’s character Sir Cormac consults […]

Deantoni Parks – “Our Shadows”

Deantoni Parks is first and foremost a drummer, and he’s provided percussion for artists like John Cale, Sade, the Mars Volta, Flying Lotus, and more. But Technoself is the result of Parks’ focus on how his rhythms manifest in solo work, and he frequently plays drums with one hand while working a sampler with the […]

!!! – “Bam City” Video

!!! announced the release of their sixth album, As If, all the way back in the middle of the summer, and now the release date is fast approaching: The record comes out in two weeks, and the dance-punk group has just shared another new single, “Bam City,” to join the tracks we’ve already heard (“All […]

Stream Yvette Time Management EP

New York noise-rock duo Yvette are a rare beast: A rock band who use electronics to make their sound nastier and dirtier and more unforgiving, rather than cleaner and friendlier. Their new EP Time Management sounds like a twisted wreck of synth squeal and guitar burn, and it never lets up for a second. We’ve […]
