Mac McCaughan – “Wet Leaves” Video

In a couple of weeks, longtime Superchunk frontman Mac McCaughan will release Non-Believers, the first solo album he’s ever recorded under his own name. We’ve heard “Lost Again” and the 7? version of “Box Batteries,” and now McCaughan has made a video for the lilting DIY synthpop song “Wet Leaves.” The video comes from director […]

Moaning – “The Same” (Stereogum Premiere)

There’s something innately appealing about watching something get destroyed. Los Angeles’ Moaning wreck a house in the video for their catchy as hell new song “The Same,” and it’s captivating to see them irreversibly tear things down while they sing about not knowing what’s coming next. Change comes in fits and starts — sometimes it […]

Preview Chelsea Wolfe’s “Iron Moon” In A Teaser For New LP Abyss

Chelsea Wolfe hasn’t released an album since Pain Is Beauty came out in 2013, which might seem like no big deal if you’re unfamiliar with Wolfe’s prolific history. Pain Is Beauty marked the L.A.-based singer’s fourth full-length in four years, so, by her standards, we’ve been waiting a long time. Today, Wolfe announced her forthcoming […]

Overdoz. – “Fuck Yo’ DJ” (Feat. A$AP Ferg) Video

The last time OverDoz. put out a mixtape was back in 2013, and even then the L.A.-based rap collective said those songs were several years old. So hearing something new from the four members — Kent, Cream, P, Joon — is heartening. What’s even better? The crew are releasing a proper album, 2008, via RCA […]

Elvis Depressedly – “Thou Shall Not Murder” Video

Elvis Depressedly will release their seventh full-length record, New Alhambra, next month, and today the Asheville-based duo shared a video for the record’s third single “Thou Shall Not Murder.” When I interviewed Elvis Depressedly back in March and premiered the single “Bruises (Amethyst),” Cothran commented that the song is about, “How we move through life […]

Stream Bent Denim Romances You (Stereogum Premiere)

The version of indie-pop Bent Denim presents on Romances You is uniquely modern and entirely their own. It’s a drowsy, depressive sort of music, the sound of a technology-addled imagination anxiously drifting through that space between dreams and waking life. Ben Littlejohn and Dennis Sager spell out that sentiment from the start — “I’m stuck […]

Blanck Mass – “Detritus”

Benjamin John Power, one half of Fuck Buttons, also runs the one-man noise project Blanck Mass, and he’s got the new album Dumb Flesh coming out next month. We’ve already posted a monster of a track called “Dead Format,” and now we’ve got one that makes that one sound like a pleasant Sunday brunch. The […]

Matthew E. White – “Feeling Good Is Good Enough” Video

I consider Matthew E. White’s album Fresh Blood to be something of a sacrificial lamb. White (and Trey Pollard) produced and arranged labelmate Natalie Prass’ jaw-dropping, grandiose self-titled debut, an album that couldn’t help but eclipse his own record that came out a few weeks after. In March I went to see White perform with […]

Keeping It In The Family

Young Fathers - Soon Come Soon Single Mothers - Marbles Daughter - Winter The Son(s) - Paint Eyes on Your Eyelids Grandma - Sleeping Sleeping by Grandma Grandfather - Exit Wounds

Stream Jacco Gardner Hypnophobia

It’s tempting to categorize Jacco Gardner by the scope of his musical instruments. Hypnophobia features a Wurlitzer electric piano, mellotrons, harpsichords, an obscure, ancient Optigan, an antique Steinway upright — these are relics of a particular nature, hand-selected and played to achieve a baroque pop period piece.

You Can Call In To Shamir’s “Call It Off” Relationship Hotline

Shamir has set up a relationship hotline to promote his new single “Call It Off.” Of course, the first thing I did was give it a call with the hope that Shamir would answer and help me figure my shit out. It turns out that you have to leave a voicemail detailing your relationship problems […]

Howard Stern Announces Beatles Special With The Flaming Lips & Fred Armisen

There are going to be some confused boomers this Friday night. At 11PM, Howard Stern is turning over his Sirius XM channel to guest host Fred Armisen and to the Flaming Lips, who will be turning the show into a Beatles tribute. According to a press release, they’ll do songs from With A Little Help […]

Book Notes - Emily Schultz "The Blondes"

In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that relates in some way to their recently published book. Previous contributors include Bret Easton Ellis, Kate Christensen, Kevin Brockmeier, T.C. Boyle, Dana Spiotta, Amy Bloom, Aimee...

Spoon – “Inside Out (Fabrizio Moretti Remix)”

Spoon are releasing an entire EP of remixes of They Want My Soul highlight “Inside Out” next week. Today they’ve shared Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti’s take, which trades the original track’s floaty piano boom-bap for grainy, haunted disco-funk. Other remixers include Operators (featuring Britt Daniel and Alex Fischel’s Divine Fits bandmates Dan Boeckner and Sam […]

American Wrestlers – “Kelly” Video

Recent Band To Watch honoree American Wrestlers explore well-trod American past times in the video for “Kelly.” The UK transplant finds the beauty in a dude wearing a cowboy hat drinking beers in his garage and flipping through channels on the TV, turning a simple activity into something compulsively watchable. It’s intercut with dusty footage […]

Status Ain’t Hood: Young Thug, Lil Wayne & Killing Your Idols

Well, it happened. Tha Carter VI came out before Tha Carter V. Young Thug’s take on Lil Wayne’s legacy is on iTunes and Spotify right now, while Lil Wayne’s take on Lil Wayne’s legacy will probably be welded shut in the Cash Money vault for the rest of eternity. There are crucial caveats, of course. […]

Watch James Corden Rap His Late Late Show Monologue With Mark Ronson On The Beat

Mark Ronson is currently riding high off that “Uptown Funk!” wave, but for his appearance on the Late Late Show Ronson had something different in mind: James Corden, rapper. For the host’s opening monologue Ronson insisted Corden rap his jokes while he provided various beats. And what a set of jokes they were! His “rap” […]

Ed Schrader’s Music Beat – “Emperor’s New Chair” Video

No band does a better job of not giving a fuck than Ed Schrader’s Music Beat. These are two dudes who make short, sticky power-punk songs using a single drum and bass as their instrumentation. They’re goofy and endearing and a total joy to see live. “Emperor’s New Chair” is from the band’s most recent […]

Wire Albums From Worst To Best

“There are those who say Wire was the best punk band ever because it broke all of the rules, didn’t stick with any of the blueprints and did actually what it wanted,” Colin Newman told Rolling Stone in 2013. “I just wouldn’t call that punk, personally. Punk is just one of those words that’s so […]

Rozwell Kid – “Kangaroo Pocket” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

West Virginia’s Rozwell Kid were among the acts performing at Stereogum’s very own SXSW showcase last month. In their new video for the melodic guitar churn “Kangaroo Pocket,” the lead track from their recent album Too Shabby, the four-piece plays through their latest single totally headless. It’s a lighthearted clip, but the cartoonish gore plays […]
