Recent Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Peter Gabriel debuted a new song at a show in Torino, Italy on Thursday night.

This is Gabriel’s first original song since the Oscar-nominated WALL•E theme “Down To Earth” [...]

Book Notes - Cassandra Troyan "Blacken Me, Blacken Me, Growled" and "Kill Manual"

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, George Pelecanos, Dana Spiotta, Amy Bloom, Aimee...

The Hanged Man – “The Island” Video

The former Those Dancing Days guitarist Rebecka Rolfart now makes dark, churning synthpop as the Hanged Man. Along with directors Sheila Johansson and Michelle Claesson Eismann, she filmed her video for her great single “The Island” on an actual Island in Sweden. It’s a stark, ominous black-and-white clip in which Rolfart wanders an abandoned landscape [...]

Joyce Manor – “Tame”

Joyce Manor’s Never Hungover Again is a riotously fun record that deals with some insanely depressing shit, and that carries over to “Tame,” a heartily improved version of “See How Tame I Can Be,” an older track that first appeared on their sophomore album Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired. It’s a rip-roaring [...]

Stream Maxo’s Tribute To … Limp Bizkit?

Brooklyn-based producer Maxo is the first artist to contribute a mix to a new series put together by LOGO Magazine that lets artists “pay tribute to the people that have inspired him.” Maxo decided to pick Limp Bizkit for the project, which is admittedly a bit of a weird choice but he turns it into [...]


Nancy Pants - "Happy". Garbage dancer: foil, cereal box, yes ok some Christmas garlands. Sewer somersault, basement splits. Pogo and worm. Found some records in a milk-crate, "Louie Louie" and "Black Hole Sun", remember to wear gloves. Night sky's...

Watch The Unreleased Marilyn Manson Video In Which Lana Del Rey Is Raped

Sometimes, unreleased videos stay unreleased for a reason. Sometime in the last couple of years, Hostel director Eli Roth made a dark and disturbing video for Marilyn Manson. The video shows a freakish dinner party, an indiscriminate highway shooting, and, in a particularly nasty moment, Roth himself raping Lana Del Rey. During an interview with [...]

Soundgarden – “Kristi” (Stereogum Premiere)

Next week, Soundgarden will release the three-CD rarities collection Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path, which has already yielded the songs “Storm” and “Twin Tower.” One of the set’s unreleased songs is “Kristi,” a crushing riff-rocker that the band recorded during the sessions for their 1996 album Down On The Upside. According to [...]

Jacques Greene – “After Life After Party”

Montreal DJ Jacques Greene has released a the title track off his new EP, After Life After Party. You’ll probably recognize Greene as the glasses-wearing guy from Azealia Banks’”212” video, but he’s also well known for his fusion of EDM beats with R&B vibes. “After Life After Party” has a slow build, adding varied beats [...]

Tobias Jesso Jr. Played His Fourth Show Ever In Someone’s Kitchen Last Night

It’s always a little bit nerve-racking seeing an artist perform live for the first time, especially one that’s been garnering a lot of hype on the internet. With only three readily available songs to his name (two of which are demos) and a list of producers for his debut album that include some of the [...]

IO Echo & TOKiMONSTA – “Heartbreaker” (Mariah Carey Cover)

L.A. shoegazers IO Echo have a new mixtape on the way, and they’ve teased it with a quality cover of Mariah Carey’s “Heartbeaker.” The electronic producer TOKiMONSTA is featured on the track as well. As you might expect, it’s more daydream than Daydream. Listen below. IO Echo’s mixtape is expected out tomorrow, 11/19.

Lil Wayne – “Off Day” (Feat. Flow)

Lil Wayne has just shared another track from his upcoming new album, Tha Carter V. Weezy raps over a bouncy beat produced by X Fyle and at one point he sings “I’m cumming, I’m cumming, I’m cumming” in his usual Autotuned drawl so … yeah. It features relatively recent Young Money signee Flow, and calls [...]

The Week In Pop: Bobby Shmurda Is A Pioneer, But Also A Traditionalist Of Sorts

Bobby Shmurda is a pioneer several times over. The Brooklyn rapper’s breakout hit “Hot Nigga” — or “Hot Boy,” as it’s known to the radio programmers who’ve roundly embraced it — reached a new peak this week, climbing to #6 on Billboard’s definitive singles chart, the Hot 100. It’s the kind of mixtape track Lil [...]

Watch Christopher Owens Cover The Jackson 5?s “I’ll Be There”

It takes a certain level of courage to cover a perfect pop song from one of history’s greatest singers, but the former Girls frontman Christopher Owens has that in him. During a recent in-studio session for the University Of Minnesota college station Radio K, Owens took on the Jackson 5?s eternally stunning 1970 ballad “I’ll [...]

Peter, Bjorn & John – “Put It There” (Paul McCartney Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

On the new tribute-album compilation The Art Of McCartney, a long list of impressive big names line up to cover the songs of Paul McCartney, in his Beatles and Wings and solo incarnations. With 34 songs on the complete album, somehow there wasn’t enough room for Swede-pop dukes Peter Bjorn And John, who recorded a [...]

Dimesland – “Dying Foretold” (Stereogum Premiere)

Want proof that this world ain’t a fair place? Consider the case of Oakland, California’s Dimesland. You may recall this state-of-the-art metal act from September’s edition of The Black Market, where I credited the band as a close spiritual successor to the long-running prog-thrash unit Voivod. I stand by that comparison and would add another [...]


Cocteau Twins - "Lorelei". [buy] On Monday night my novel Us Conductors won the Giller Prize, Canada's biggest fiction award. I thanked all of you in the speech. I thanked this song in the speech. My life's a rock in...

RL Grime – “Kingpin” (Feat. Big Sean)

The last collaboration bass producer RL Grime shared from his upcoming Void was the How To Dress Well-featuring “Reminder.” Today he released a very different partnership in the form of “Kingpin.” The track features Big Sean, who seems to be making the rounds with electronic producers; he also guested on Calvin Harris’ “Open Wide” recently. [...]

Antony & The Johnsons & Charles Atlas’ “You Are My Sister” Will Play Nightly In Times Square Throughout December

If you find yourself stumbling drunk out of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company and staring at the digitized image of Antony Hegarty, don’t worry; you are probably not hallucinating. Antony & The Johnsons recently collaborated with the visual artist Charles Atlas on the new concert film TURNING. And throughout the month of December, Antony & [...]
