Cosmo’s Midnight – “History”

Cosmo's Midnight are twin brothers from Sydney who produce contagiously vibrant R&B-inflected electronic pop. Their Moments EP counted Lido and Kero Kero Bonito's Sarah Midori Perry among its guests; it was good, and their latest single is even better. "History" is an effervescent, synth-powered dance track about drinking, flirting, and falling into bed with an…

Lil Bibby – “You Ain’t Gang (Remix)” (Feat. Lil Durk, Dej Loaf, & Kevin Gates)

The young, gravelly-voiced Chicago hardass Lil Bibby has himself a street hit with the forbidding banger "You Ain't Gang," and he's now rounded out some extremely well-curated guests for the all-star remix. The new version of the track has verses from Chicago drill star Lil Durk, lethally catchy Detroit sing-rapper Dej Loaf, and, most crucially,…

Jens Lekman – “What’s That Perfume That You Wear?” Video

Earlier this week, Swedish indie-pop savant Jens Lekman announced the impending release of his new album Life Will See You Now and shared his peppy, lovely new single "What's That Perfume That You Wear?"

No Beginning

Almost exactly three years ago, I moved out of a small, near-lightless apartment into a beautiful, drafty, sun-dappled mansion with three total strangers I'd found on the internet. The building was gorgeous and ancient and full of errors: one of...

Bye Bye 2016, it’s Been ‘Interesting’

I am not going to harp on much about the disaster that was 2016, partly because celebrities dying doesn’t strike me as something much to get worked up about, sad as it is, and partly because for all the political disasters we have suffered, if they are anything like as bad as we think they […]

The Devil's Best Of 2016 #1

2016 has been one of the worst years in living memory both for music and for the wider world. In a seemingly never ending flow of shocking announcements over the past 12 months we have lost Bowie, Leonard Cohen, John Berry, Prince, Greg Lake, and George Michael. Show More Summary

The 25 Best Rap Verses Of 2016

Nas proclaimed Hip Hop Is Dead 10 years ago. He had to raise the stakes on the album with a grandiose title and statement to start a conversation (and sell records). What he most likely meant, coming from the old-school ilk and seeing dance crazes take over the mid-aughts, is that lyricism is dead. If […]

Not sure why no one told us about the dope new EP from Norwegian electro-pop duo Smerz that dropped a few weeks back on Hard Up, but consider this our first case of serious year-end-list regret. We were enthralled by their single "Because"...Show More Summary

“Somebody’s Watching Me” Singer Rockwell Preps First Album In Over 30 Years

Rockwell — the moniker of Kennedy William Gordy, the son of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy — recently sat down with Rolling Stone to reflect on the making of his hit 1984 spooky-pop single “Somebody’s Watching Me,” which famously featured uncredited backing vocals from Michael and Jermaine Jackson. Among the anecdotes included in the story […]

Sondre Lerche – “I’m Always Watching You Too”

Earlier this year, Sondre Lerche released the excellent voyeuristic single “I’m Always Watching You,” and today he’s sharing an alternate vision of the same song called “I’m Always Watching You Too,” which takes the warm bombastic pop of the original and twists it into icy tendrils. Here’s how the songwriter explains the new take: The […]
