Arcade Fire – “Here Comes The Night Time (Dennis Bovell Remix)”

Reggae musician and famed producer Dennis Bovell has remixed Arcade Fire once before — he did a version of “Flashbulb Eyes featuring his frequent collaborator Linton Kwesi Johnson — and he just debuted another remix he made for the band. While sitting in for Iggy Pop on BBC Radio 6 Music, Bovell debuted a new […]

Capital STEEZ – “Herban Legend” Video

Pro Era founder Capital STEEZ took his own life almost four years ago, and since then the collective that he started has paid tribute to him by releasing some of his music posthumously. Their latest offering to his memory is a video for the 2012 Kirk Knight-produced track “Herban Legend,” which charts his legacy within […]

stream Carly Rae Jepsen's E•MO•TION: Side B

I feel like the average pop star dreams of writing one song as good as Carly Rae Jepsen's b-sides. One highlight: the early Madonna vibes are so strong on "First Time", which was first released on the Japan-only E•MO•TION REMIXED + that dropped earlier this year... Continue reading…

stream Vince Staples' Prima Donna EP

"War Ready", the incendiary, James Blake-produced opening track from Vince Staples' new Prima Donna EP, with its brilliant use of that iconic vintage 3000 verse, is already probably our most-played track of 2016... Continue reading…

Vince Staples – “’06” (Full Version)

Last year, Vince Staples ended his great double album Summertime ’06 with “’06,” a deeply funky rap song that ended suddenly, after 48 seconds, with a burst of static. This was a very Vince Staples move: sacrificing a very good song just for the effect of jarring his audience, coming up with the most abrupt […]

Band To Watch: Slow Mass

Let’s get one thing straight: Chicago’s Slow Mass is not a side project. Although drummer Josh Sparks and guitarist Josh Parks both play in the touring version of Into It. Over It., the quartet treats this as a full-time band, and it’s nothing short of a passion project. Each of the members comes from a […]

Watch The Last Shadow Puppets Play A Song About LCD Soundsystem

Recently during downtime in their sets, the Last Shadow Puppets have been coming up with improvised songs about various bands. They’ve already tackled Arcade Fire and Tame Impala, and at their show at Lowlands Festival over the weekend, they performed a song about LCD Soundsystem. “I’m excited about LCD Soundsystem/ James Murphy, baby!” go some […]

a few omissions from Pitchfork's excellent Best Songs of the 1970s list

We kind of love Pitchfork's list of the 200 best songs of the 1970s. Lists like these are next to impossible to compile, but theirs is a very good and balanced mix of the obvious and the obscure, spanning disco, dub, jazz, soul, new wave, punk, yacht rock and more, and you can listen to the whole playlist here.

Helena Deland – Baby

Here's a hauntingly beautiful new track from Montreal's Helena Deland, on which she seems to flip the possibly misheard "you're so baby" line from Ariel Pink's "Baby" cover (or maybe not) into an intoxicating and eerie ballad... Continue reading…

Sam Evian – “I Need A Man”

Sam Evian is the new solo moniker of Sam Owens, frontman of Brooklyn indie-rockers (and Stereogum Best New Band class of ’13) Celestial Shore. He’s putting out his debut solo album next month on Saddle Creek, and today, we’re getting our second taste of the LP following golden-hued lead single “Sleepy Easy.” “I Need A […]

Book Notes - R.J. Fox "Love & Vodka"

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, Lauren Groff, T.C. Boyle, Dana Spiotta, Amy Bloom, Aimee...

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Shakedown Street” Video

2 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s contribution to the National’s triple-disc monster of a Grateful Dead tribute compilation, Day Of The Dead, was a cover of “Shakedown Street.” The original was already a funky tune, but UMO threw in some warped psychedelia for one of the most ambitious covers in the entire collection. Today, they’ve given their reworking […]

2 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last week a viral video made the rounds that showed a Hawaiin man, Clint Alama, playing Matisyahu’s “One Day” on ukulele in a coffee shop. Somehow, Matisyahu himself happened to be in the exact same coffee shop where this was happening, and his bassist Stu Brooks filmed the roots-reggae star joining in on vocals with […]

Uh… Soundgarden Just Released An EDM Remix Of “Spoonman”

3 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Hmm… Soundgarden have just released an official remix of their classic 1994 Superunknown track “Spoonman,” done by none other than EDM lowlife and professional cake-thrower Steve Aoki. As you might expect, it is pretty bad (or, at best, extremely unmemorable), using the song’s powerful riff to let loose some dated fart drops. Wonder how much […]
