Album Of The Week: Maxwell blackSUMMERS’night

Maxwell albums are like comets: They don’t appear often, but when they do, they have a way of reminding you how small you are in the vast scheme of the universe. A song like Maxwell’s version of Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work” feels like evidence of the existence of hyper-evolved human beings in the world. […]

Tacocat – “I Live For The Sun” (The Sunrays Cover)

The joyously jittery Seattle punks Tacocat released their Lost Time album earlier this year, and they’ve also been cranking out covers lately. We’ve posted their versions of Katy Perry’s “Roar” and the Powerpuff Girls theme song. And now they’ve taken on “I Live For The Sun,” a Beach Boys soundalike that was a minor hit […]

NITE-FUNK – “Let Me Be Me”

Bat For Lashes – “We’ve Only Just Begun” (Carpenters Cover) Live Video

Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan has cited the Carpenters as an influence on her upcoming new album, The Bride, and she’s paid tribute to the duo by covering their 1970 ballad “We’ve Only Just Begun.” Khan has been doing the song live for a while now, and today she’s shared a professionally (and beautifully)-shot video […]

Usher – “Crash” Video

Every few years now, Usher comes through with a forward-leaning, surefire chart-topper. In 2012, we had “Climax,” and two years ago we got “I Don’t Mind” — 2016’s entry into the Usher canon is the pulsing “Crash,” and today it gets the video treatment. It’s a pretty low-key affair, featuring Usher dancing around in a […]

Watch Sampha Cover Air’s “All I Need”

Last month, UK soul singer Sampha released an excellent single in the form of “Timmy’s Prayer,” and he recently appeared on BBC Radio 1 for a piano session to perform that track and a cover of Air’s “All I Need,” which appeared on the group’s 1998 debut Moon Safari. Watch video of both performances below.

Outlaw country singer David Allan Coe is now (sort of) an actual outlaw after being sentenced to tax evasion earlier this week. The 76-year-old musician — who made his name off of a string of songs in the ’70s and ’80s with names like “Take This Job And Shove It,” “Mona Lisa’s Lost Her Smile,” […]

Holly Miranda – “Mary Won’t You Call My Name” (Morphine Cover)

2 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Earlier this year, the singer-songwriter Holly Miranda released Party Trick, an EP of covers. We’ve posted her versions of songs by Drake and Bon Iver, but the cover choice that impressed me most was “In Spite Of Me,” the best song that the much-missed Boston trio Morphine ever recorded. And now Miranda has shared another […]

Revocation – “Monolithic Ignorance” (Stereogum Premiere)

2 weeks agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Revocation are essentially survivors of a mass extinction. When they first appeared in 2006 as an offshoot of an earlier band called Cryptic Warning, the style they play — sleek, technical death/thrash metal with a gleaming modern presentation — was at the apex of its popularity. Necrophagist and Arsis were among metal’s most buzzed-about bands, which […]

Band Of Horses went on James Corden’s Late Late Show last night, and he didn’t even force them to Carpool Karaoke “The Funeral” or anything. Instead, the rootsy indie-rock OGs performed “Whatever, Wherever,” a gentle ballad from their imminent new album Why Are You OK. They also did “Solemn Oath” as a web exclusive. Check […]

Courtney Barnett is a big fan of the Lemonheads. A couple of years ago, she shared a cover of “Being Around,” and she’s gone on record saying that “Paid To Smile” is “a perfect pop song.” She finally got around to covering part of it during a show in Philadelphia back in May, and last […]
