Mood Hut crew announces Disco Mantras 12?

Not exactly sure who or what these tracks are, but we do know this comes from a forthcoming 12" LP from Vancouver's Mood Hut crew, and it sounds exceedingly dope. According to the soundcloud description, the aptly named Disco Mantras...Show More Summary

Watch Outkast And Future In The Organized Noize Documentary Trailer

Organized Noise is truly one of the most influential hip-hop production crews of all time. Even beyond their hometown of Atlanta, their sounds and tendencies have been borrowed, stolen, and repurposed as rap has traversed different parts of the country and the world. Still, their influence is strongest on their hometown; the ATL’s status as […]

Freddie Gibbs – “Money, Cash, Hoes”

It seems Freddie Gibbs is revisiting rap eras past on his latest string of one-offs to draw folks back to Shadow Of A Doubt. He kicked off 2016 with the “Dead Presidents Freestyle” referencing Jay Z’s ’96 classic from Reasonable Doubt and revisited the Cash Money-dominated late’90s and early 2000s with the slight ode “Hot […]

Book Notes - Amy Gustine "You Should Pity Us Instead"

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...

Guided By Voices Reunite, Again, Kind Of

LOL WTF, GBV? Ohio indie-rock heroes Guided By Voices hung it up very ceremoniously on New Year’s Eve 2004, reunited with even more fanfare in 2010, and then ended with a whimper, not a bang, in late 2014. Now they seem to be back in action yet again. Calgary’s Sled Island Music & Arts Festival […]

Watch Killer Mike In Triumph The Insult Comic Dog’s New Election Special

Vocal Bernie Sanders supporter Killer Mike makes an appearance in Triumph The Insult Comic Dog’s new election special for Hulu. In the quick segment, Triumph ribs Mike about Sanders’ low polling numbers among the African-American community on the red carpet for one of the democratic debates. “I hope black dogs are voting for Sanders,” Killer […]

Eskimeaux – “Power”

Sunday is Valentine’s Day which makes Eskimeaux’s new single sound extremely appropriate in a deeply fucked way. “Power” explores the inevitable power play that surfaces when you realize that you’re deeply bonded to someone. That struggle materializes now and then between both friends and lovers, but I’m more inclined to consider the song through the […]

Nevermen – “Mr. Mistake” Video

Low-key supergroup Nevermen — comprising TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, Anticon experimental rapper Doseone, and Mike Patton of Faith No More — just came out with their self-titled debut last month. Leading up to its release they shared “Mr. Mistake,” remixed it, and sneaked in “Hate On” just before it dropped. Today, they give […]

Cobalt – “Beast Whip”

In 2009, the Colorado-based duo Cobalt released their third LP, Gin — one of the 10 best metal albums of the last decade, as far as I’m concerned. The album came complete with a fascinating narrative: It paid tribute to Hunter S. Thompson and Ernest Hemingway — the cover image is a sepia-toned photo of […]

ROMP – “Avoiding Boys” (Stereogum Premiere)

“Avoiding Boys” is one of those songs you throw on in the morning to pump you up to conquer the world. When you’re hungover, feeling shitty, riddled with anxiety, “Avoiding Boys” will be there to tell you: “I don’t care what you might say/ This is gonna be a great fucking day.” The second single […]

Red Lobster Claims Beyoncé-Related Sales Surge Despite Its Lame Social Media Response

Red Lobster is claiming that it experienced a 33% sales bump on Sunday compared to the same day a year ago following their shoutout in Beyoncé’s new song “Formation,” which seems like a particularly specious claim considering it was the fucking Super Bowl and no one was taking anyone’s ass to Red Lobster that day. […]

Dirty Dishes – “All Of Me”

Dirty Dishes released their debut LP Guilty last year, and I wrote about how the band’s scatterbrained collection of songs opened up a world of possibility for their future releases. There are songs on that album that sound like the slow, plodding tinkle of a music box, and then there are others that are so […]

Keith Ape – “It G Ma (Josh Pan Opus)” (Feat. Anderson .Paak, A$AP Ferg, Waka Flocka Flame, Father, & Dumbfoundead)

Josh Pan is a remix monster. He calls his new 14-minute remix of Keith Ape’s “It G Ma” an “opus” and it actually lives up to the billing. There’s an EP’s worth of material on this one track. It plays like an orchestral movement and could double as a film score for some kind of […]

Album Of The Week: Young Thug I’m Up

I hate having to choose between Young Thug and Future. For one thing, they’re both truly great — bugged-out Atlanta rap rebels who have been shooting the mainstream full of absurd ideas and making themselves truly popular in the process. For another, they should really be on each other’s teams. They are natural allies, so […]

Dev Hynes Teases New Blood Orange Album Arriving With Minimal Advance Promotion

Looks like we’ll be getting a new Blood Orange album sometime in the near future. Dev Hynes tweeted the news today, stating that there will be very little advance promotion for the project: I mean, if anyone cares lol — Devonté Hynes (@devhynes) February 9, 2016 Hynes teased some of the LP back in December […]

NYC’s Country Music Festival FarmBorough Is Cancelled

FarmBorough, billed as New York City’s first country festival when they got their start last year, will not be returning for a second year, even though they had already announced the festival’s initial lineup a few weeks ago. “All of us at FarmBorough Festival appreciate the support we have received, but conditions dictate that we […]

EERA – “White Water” Video

Norway via UK singer EERA is gearing up to drop her self-titled EP this spring. She’s already shared the vulnerable, dark “Drive With Fear,” and today she follows up with a video for “White Water.” The song has a heavy, swampy bass line and skulks in the low-end before EERA’s delicately floating vocals and piercing […]

Kevin Morby – “I Have Been To The Mountain” Video

Kevin Morby has released the video for “I Have Been To The Mountain,” the first single off his upcoming album Singing Saw. Dedicated to and inspired by the death of Eric Garner, the solemn, acoustic guitar-based tune expresses Morby’s anger towards the thoughtless killings in our society that overwhelm our past and present. Its video […]
