New Garden of Elks Single

Garden of Elks – SWAP from Song, by Toad on Vimeo. The Garden of Elks debut album A Distorted Sigh is coming out on Song, by Toad Records in April, and this is the first single. The video, like the song, cavorts joyously along for a couple of minutes and then packs it in – no […]

Evans The Death – “Enabler” Video

3 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The young London four-piece Evans The Death make a big, loud, feedbacky form of noise-pop that invites Sonic Youth or Jesus And Mary Chain comparisons. Their sophomore album Expect Delays is coming next month, and we premiered the early track “Don’t Laugh At My Angry Face.” Their new video for “Enabler” is a fast, cheap [...]

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

3 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

There were a couple of big high-profile videos this week from artists I like, and they had big ideas, but they didn’t move me much. The video for Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds” went for a certain classicist magazine-shoot simplicity, and while Rihanna turned in a hell of a charismatic performance, the video [...]

Le Thug – launch night and vinyl delivery

The vinyl for Le Thug’s gorgeous new EP Place Is has just turned up, and it looks AMAZING! The light in our kitchen isn’t ideal for taking pictures but I hope you get the idea. You can order a copy here, if you are suitably convinced. The launch night is on Valentine’s Day at Summerhall […]

Girlpool – “Chinatown” Video

The frenetic energy of Girlpool’s “Blah Blah Blah” and the deep, bluesy grooves of “Jane” originally drew my attention to the L.A. duo, but their new single “Chinatown” veers off in a different direction. The track has a slower, sweeping pace, and the video of Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker goofing off in the song’s [...]

Parkay Quarts – “Pretty Machines” Video

2 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

A few months ago, sardonic New York postpunkers Parquet Courts capped off a really, really great 2014 by releasing the quickie album Content Nausea under the name Parkay Quarts. The album, a bit punchier and more casual than the great Sunbathing Animal, is still full of the sort of sidelong hooks and endlessly quotable lyrics [...]

A-Trak – “Push” (Feat. Andrew Wyatt) Video (NSFW)

2 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

A-Trak’s new video for “Push,” a house track with a vocal from Miike Snow singer Andrew Wyatt, is a beautifully absurd piece of work. It depicts a party in which various different rich and stylish people, in varying states of undress, enjoy each other’s company at the sort of fancy dinner party that features guns [...]

The Who Play “A Quick One, While He’s Away” For The First Time In 44 Years

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

True story: Last summer, at the longstanding Columbus, Ohio community festival known as ComFest, I saw two separate local bands cover the Who’s epic song-suite “A Quick One, While He’s Away,” unbeknownst to each other. It was a crazy coincidence, especially since the actual Who haven’t played it in 44 years. That changed Sunday night [...]

Freeway & Girl Talk – “Lived It” Video

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

There are few things in this world more life-affirming than watching local rap stars moving through their hometowns, shaking hands and kissing babies. Philly veteran Freeway teamed up with mash-up monster Girl Talk for the Broken Ankles EP earlier this year, and their new video for the seen-it-all song “Lived It” ends with the two [...]
