Dej Loaf is a spitfire Detroit rapper best known for her no-fucks-given, ominous swag anthem “Try Me.” Her fabulous 2014 mixtape Sell Sole came on the heels of a record deal with Columbia, and that major label money is more than evident in the video for one of the tape’s more romantic tracks “Me U […]

Taylor Swift’s Chinese Toyota Commercials Are Awkward Beyond Your “Wildest Dreams”

Taylor Swift took the best song off 1989 and turned it into a Toyota commercial, joining the long legacy of American celebrities appearing in foreign TV spots they’d never agree to stateside. The ad uses “Wildest Dreams” to promote Toyota’s newest hybrid car in the Chinese market. There’s two versions of the ad, but both […]

Field Music – “Casting Out Pts 2 And 3?

For Record Store Day this year, Field Music will put out their fifth full-length album, an entirely instrumental recording that’s meant to act as the score to the 1929 silent documentary Drifters.

Spotify Says Ed Sheeran Puts More People To Sleep Than Any Other Artist

As someone who spent an embarrassing amount of time watching old Ed Sheeran videos with a friend the other night, this headline kind of confounded me. I stayed up worrying about the wayward girl in Sheeran’s video for “The A-Team,” unable to sleep wondering how many pre-pubescent individuals swore off eyeliner for life (among other […]

New Music Monday: Cowlick

In an attempt to get back into the habit of posting I'm looking to Hamilton for inspiration.

Garden of Elks – A Distorted Sigh Out Now

Garden of Elks themselves call this ‘thrash-pop’ and I really can’t think of anything better, to be honest. In the words of Whisperin’ and Hollerin’ it’s “ten ‘blink-and-you’ll-miss-them’ tunes that sound like the missing link between The Ramones and Sonic Youth”. Or inbetween Arcade Fire and Iggy Pop if you look at the playlist on KEXP […]
