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 weeks 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 weeks 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

2 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

2 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 [...]

Check Out Dave Grohl’s Unearthed, Chili Peppers-y Solo Track “Hooker On The Street”

2 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

In the Seattle episode of Sonic Highways, Dave Grohl revealed that Kurt Cobain kissed him on the lips while in the bathtub after hearing Grohl’s early demos for what would become Foo Fighters. “Hooker On The Street,” a previously unreleased Grohl demo that surfaced in the episode, is spicy in a different way. Specifically, it [...]

Acura’s Got A Commercial With Julian Casablancas Music, Too

2 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

A song from the Strokes recently showed up in a commercial for the Volkswagen Golf, and it looks like another car company has snagged the honor of a Julian Casablancas-performed song to soundtrack their ad. Acura’s new holiday commercial uses Casablancas’ cover of “I Wish It Was Christmas Today,” the Saturday Night Live recurring classic [...]

2 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Mississipi rap duo Rae Sremmurd (of “No Flex Zone” fame) have shared a video for their new single “Illest Walking.” The track features a heavy beat laid over some ominous-sounding Christmas bells. The video sees the two of them dressed up in Jason Voorhees-style hockey goalie masks intercut with some footage of them performing live. [...]

2 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Swedish pop duo Korallreven have shared a sparkling cover of Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain.” Their version of the Use Your Illusion ballad filters the track through their icy production style and gives it a more modern feel. Introducing the song, the band said they were inspired by Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen’s “Arpeggios From Hell” [...]

Gorillaz – “Feel Good Inc. (James Blake Remix)”

2 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

“Feel Good Inc.,” the De La Soul collaboration that probably still stands as the single best-known Gorillaz song, is now nine years old. At some point in the past nine years, James Blake put together a remix of that song. It’s remained buried until now. Rich Reason threw Blake’s remix into a recent Fabriclive mix, [...]
