Courtney Marie Andrews – Put The Fire Out (music video)

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

Photo by Susy Sundborg Honest Life by Courtney Marie Andrews was one of my biggest oversights of 2016. I’d say that album and Brent Cobb’s Shine On Rainy Day were two Americana albums that I really slept on in 2016. So in a small effort to right that wrong, please check out the new video [...]

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

I came really, really close to putting an Enrique Iglesias video on this week's list. Enrique Iglesias' video for "Subeme La Radio" just missed this week's cutoff. I'm just saying. Enrique Iglesias made a good video. This week's picks are below. …

Lillie Mae announces Forever and Then Some on 4/14/17

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

Album Cover Photo by Laura Partain I first learned of Lillie Mae from this video of duets that Luck Reunion and Third Man Records released last year. For those who haven’t seen it, it is essentially a bunch of ridiculously talented people drinking Tito’s and singing duets. I’d heard of everybody else seen in that [...]

Last night, Sleater-Kinney played a benefit show for the ACLU at Portland's Crystal Ballroom alongside a bill that included the Decemberists' Colin Meloy and Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks.

Buke And Gase – “Dress” (PJ Harvey Cover)

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

New York pop deconstructors are the latest participants in the anti-Trump song series Our First 100 Days. And for their contribution, the duo have covered "Dress," the immortal anxiety anthem from PJ Harvey's classic debut Dry. With their version of the song, Buke And Gase have tweaked the original song's primal riff, turning it into…

Tei Shi – “How Far”

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Valerie Teicher put out her first song as Tei Shi -- the gloriously alluring "M&Ms" -- back in 2013, and a long road and a couple EPs has finally led to her debut album, Crawl Space, which is due out at the end of March. Lead single "Keep Running" was restrained but elastic electro-pop, and…

Grace Slick Licensed A Starship Hit To Chick-Fil-A So She Could Donate The Fee To LGBTQ Charity

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Starship's 1987 song "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" was used in a Chick-fil-A ad that aired during the Grammys, and Jefferson Airplane and Starship singer Grace Slick recently published an op-ed in Forbes explaining that she licensed the song to the infamously conservative fast food chain in order to donate their fee to an LGBTQ…

Whitney – “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You” (Bob Dylan Cover)

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Bob Dylan ended his 1969 quasi-comeback album Nashville Skyline with "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You," a sleepy and blissful sort of love song, one with a view of romance that was much less bitter than most of what he'd written previously. Over the years, the list of artists who have covered the song…

Califone – “Slowness”

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

There are many fine records in the Califone canon, but Tim Rutili's experimental folk-rock project has never sounded more vital than on 2003's Quicksand/Cradlesnakes. So I'm pleased to report that the album, which contains the awesome "Vampiring Again" and "Michigan Girls" among other highlights, is getting a deluxe reissue this year via Dead Oceans. They're…

DJ Premier & Miguel – “2 Lovin U”

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

When Miguel was working on his sophomore album, 2015's great Wildheart, he recorded one track with DJ Premier, formerly half of Gang Starr and one of the greatest rap producers who has ever lived. But their track didn't make it onto the album. Instead, the LP featured an alternate version of that song, "Damned." On…

Animal Collective – “Jimmy Mack” (Martha And The Vandellas Cover)

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

In 1967, the euphoric Motown group Martha And The Vandellas made it to #10 on the Hot 100 with their lovelorn-but-upbeat single "Jimmy Mack." In their recent live shows, Animal Collective have been covering the song. And earlier this week, Animal Collective announced that they've got a new EP called The Painters coming out on…

Summer Moon – “Happenin'” Video

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The latest visual from Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture's band Summer Moon, for their single "Happenin'", is mildly reminiscent of Kevin Bacon's angry dance from Footloose, or my personal favorite parody by Bret McKenzie from Flight Of The Conchords. In place of Bacon or McKenzie, the video stars actor Samuel D. Evans and is shot in…

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Carly Rae Jepsen, Lil Yachty, and Mike WiLL Made-It teamed up for a cover of "It Takes Two," for Target, and tonight the music video-length commercial that accompanies the song debuted during the Grammys broadcast. It was pretty ridiculous and kind of fun in a "oh here's a lot of shameless product placement" kind of…
