14 hours agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Nite Jewel and Dâm-Funk have teamed up a couple of times over the years — most notably on “Am I Gonna Make It,” which made the rounds a few years back — and they’re back together again under their assumed name NITE-FUNK for a new track called “Can You Read Me?” It combines Dâm-Funk’s, well, […]

yesterdayMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

Barrence Whitfield & The Savages has just released their second album on Bloodshot after reuniting in 2011. If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing them live, local people in Chicago will have two chances – Tonight at Schubas and tomorrow at Space.

Tacocat have been covering the Ramones’ End Of The Century track “I Can’t Make It On Time” live since last year, but the Seattle band recently stopped by San Francisco’s Hyde Street Studios to lay down a recorded version as part of a Rhapsody video series. The motivation behind the cover? Singer Emily Nokes explains: […]

So Long And Thanks For All The Jams

RP Boo - "Bang'n On King Dr." All summer I've had a candle lit for my Chosen One, my self-ordained Summer Jam of 2015, waiting for the sign that it had caught fire, left deep scorch marks across the...

Conner Youngblood – “Stockholm”

For the last four years, Conner Youngblood has been putting out the sort of self-produced, nuanced electronic music that generally qualifies as “bedroom pop,” except he absolutely refuses to stay indoors. One of the first songs I ever heard by Youngblood was “Monsters,” from 2010, and I was fascinated and struck by the way he […]

Empress Of – “Hot N Cold” (Katy Perry Cover)

Katy Perry wouldn’t strike consistent, worthwhile pop gold until Teenage Dream, but her first two big singles — “I Kissed A Girl” and “Hot N Cold” — were kitschy, if a little grating, songs that will nonetheless be remembered fondly because they launched the career of one of today’s biggest stars. “Hot N Cold” in […]

Mixtape: Relax and rewind

Life Is Sooo Good To Me

DJ Hell, or Hell when he’s no Djing, or Helmut to his Mutter, seems to be taking over my head at the moment. Always found him a somewhat amusing character, sort of like a flamboyant uncle from Berlin with interesting friends your moms didn’t like to discuss (seem to recall him having a transvestite as […]

Palehound – “Miss Independent” (Kelly Clarkson Cover)

Kelly Clarkson has been behind some of the best, most unassailable pop songs of the past two decades — “Since U Been Gone,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” “Because Of You,” and “A Moment Like This” marked the first half of her career, and every few years she’ll come back with a barn-burner, like she did […]

Watch Amy Schumer Perform “Get ‘Em High” With Talib Kweli In Chicago

Last night, Amy Schumer and Talib Kweli played a show together at Chicago’s Constellation venue. During Kweli’s half of the show, Schumer hopped on stage to help out with the female vocals on the very on-brand “Get ‘Em High,” Kweli’s collaboration with Kanye West and Common that appeared on The College Dropout. Schumer’s brother John […]

heart was achin’ / hands are shakin’

Son of a bitch. After the very first performance of Nathaniel Rateliff with the fiery soul-saving Night Sweats in 2013, I knew that I had just witnessed something electric and exceptional that struck a chord in me and everyone else in attendance that night at the Bluebird. I immediately proclaimed them the best band in […]

Mothers – “No Crying In Baseball”

2 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

“There’s no crying in baseball” is one of those movie quotes that has reached cultural ubiquity to the point that it’s now become a stand-in for the separation of emotion and machismo, and a depressing reminder that society-at-large still isn’t comfortable when people express vulnerability. You can hear those shackles of restrain on “No Crying […]

Karen O – “Singalong” Video

2 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O released her skeletal acoustic solo album Crush Songs last year, and she’s made videos for its songs “Ooo” and “Day Go By.” And as Pitchfork points out, director Asli Baykal has just made a new clip for “Singalong.” It’s about two minutes long, and it consists entirely of footage, […]
