T.I. – “Paperwork” (Feat. Pharrell)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Later this month, T.I. is back with his new album Paperwork, and he’s sounded extra hungry on early singles like “About The Money,” with Young Thug, and “Turn It.” The album’s title track, though, is a different story. It’s a laid-back, soulful memoir, a fond, grizzled remembrance of a dangerous youth. The song has a [...]

Octave Minds – “In Silence” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

We recently shared two tracks from Octave Minds’ self-titled debut album: “Anthem” and “Tap Dance.” Now the unexpected partnership between EDM-soaked Boys Noize and piano aficionado Chilly Gonzales continues to prove its value with the third chapter of a video series that accompanies the album. Directed, animated, and written by Rolf Bremer, the video series [...]

Aretha Franklin – “I Will Survive” (Gloria Gaynor Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Later this month, Aretha Franklin will release Aretha Franklin Takes On The Great Diva Classics, a covers album that she worked on with André 3000 and Babyface. We posted her explosive take on Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep,” and now she’s let us hear her take on Gloria Gaynor’s disco classic “I Will Survive.” Aretha [...]

Hear Stevie Nicks & Haim Sing “Rhiannon” In Stevie Nicks’ House

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

T: The New York Times Style Magazine had the bright idea to have Haim visit Stevie Nicks’ house for a joint interview. While they were there, the four of them performed the Nicks-penned 1976 Fleetwood Mac hit “Rhiannon” around a piano. It’s a stripped-down, low-key, off-the-cuff affair, and it must’ve been a dream come true [...]

The enchanting, Dreamtrak-produced “A Way To Say Goodbye” is the auspicious debut from young South... Read more »

Haim, Tinashe, Gwen Stefani Featured On Calvin Harris’ Motion

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Scottish DJ Calvin Harris announced some of the feature spots on his upcoming fourth studio album, Motion, and the list is kind of interesting. It’ll have collaborations with Haim, Tinashe, Gwen Stefani, Ellie Goulding, and Big Sean. The album is due out on 11/4 and also contains Harris’ semi-successful attempt to force a song of [...]

Q&A: Tinashe On Her Brilliant Debut Album Aquarius

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Next week, Tinashe Kachingwe will release one of the strongest R&B debut albums in ages, but Aquarius is hardly the beginning for her. The 21-year-old LA resident crafted three stunning mixtapes (In Case We Die, Reverie, and Black Water) over the course of 2012 and 2013. The trio of homemade releases marked her as a [...]

No Need To Argue Turns 20

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The Cranberries and I go way back. All the way, in fact, to those kinds of memories that linger (yeah, I know) with no distinct images, but more so just some kind of visceral, unknown connection. I think of the Cranberries and I think of the stuff from their debut, Everybody Else Is Doing It, [...]

The Week In Pop: With “Rather Be,” Brainy Hybrid Band Clean Bandit Finds The Feeling

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The idea behind Clean Bandit, the British quartet whose dance hit “Rather Be” cracked the American top 10 this week, is to combine classical works by composers like Shostakovich and Beethoven with modern electronic music. The title of their first single, 2010?s “Mozart’s House,” cheekily spelled it out. It’s not exactly a new idea, but [...]

Pity Sex – “Gigantic” (Pixies Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Pity Sex have been on our radar for a while after making it onto our 40 Best New Bands and 50 Favorite Songs lists last year (the latter for “Wind Up“). They’re back this fall with a split 7? with Adventures, from which we’ve already heard the new original “Acid Reflex.” The split also includes [...]

Bush’s “The Only Way Out” May Be One Of The 17 Best Backwards Videos Of All Time

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Bush are releasing Man On The Run later this month, their second album since they reunited back in 2011. They just released a music video for lead single “The Only Way Out” and it’s one of those backwards music videos: the first part is played in reverse and then they pressed the digital fast-forward button [...]

Is Aphex Twin A 9/11 Truther?

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Aphex Twin may be the visionary who changed dance music and who released one of the year’s best albums. But he is also a socially awkward white man who owns lots of computer equipment. And as such, maybe it’s not a surprise that he “absolutely” believes the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. As Gigwise [...]

Restorations – “Tiny Prayers”

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

There are lots of punk, indie, and heartland rock reference points to toss around when you’re describing Philly rockers Restorations. New single “Tiny Prayers,” though, reminds me of one band in particular, and that band is the recently reunited Constantines. “Tiny Prayers” surges like that band’s signature track “Young Lions” as refracted through the bleeding-hearted [...]

Queen – “Love Kills” (The Ballad)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

In 1984, Queen singer Freddie Mercury released a solo single called “Love Kills.” The tune, a Giorgio Moroder-produced rippling-synth disco track, was somewhat poorly received at the time; it was nominated for Worst Song at the Razzies after Moroder included it in his soundtrack for the reissued 1927 silent film Metropolis. But “Love Kills” has [...]

Hayley Williams Accuses One Direction Of Ripping Off New Found Glory Riff That Rips Off Journey

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

To the ears of Paramore’s Hayley Williams, the opening piano riff on One Direction’s new single “Steal My Girl” so smacked of New Found Glory’s 2006 single “It’s Not Your Fault” that a Twitter dismissal was in order. Williams, who has been dating New Found Glory singer Chad Gilbert since 2008 (that’s them together at [...]

KISS Associate Busted For Child Pornography

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Guitarist Stephen Coronel, who once played with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley in KISS precursor Wicked Lester, has been arrested and accused of uploading child pornography from his home, according to the Charlotte Observer. Coronel was charged with five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor by South Carolina’s Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office. WJCL reports [...]

Arca – “Thievery” Video (NSFW)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Arca’s new video for “Thievery” is an astounding piece of work, and it effectively does for twerking what Aphex Twin’s “Windowlicker” did for late-’90s rap-video excess. “Thievery” was already a dangerous song, a streaked and ominous twist on current EDM trends; it’s the first single from the avant-dance producer’s forthcoming full-length debut Xen. And the [...]

TV On The Radio – “Happy Idiot” Video (Feat. Paul Reubens)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

At this point, Funny Or Die is debuting music videos that aren’t even trying to be funny — and that’s fine, as long as they’re good videos. TV On The Radio’s new one for “Happy Idiot,” the first single from their much-anticipated new album Seeds, is a good one. The clip stars Paul Reubens, better [...]

Swedish Scientists Are Competing To See Who Can Hide The Most Dylan Lyrics In Research Papers

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The next time you’re looking for something fun to do and you inevitably turn to picking up a scientific article, you may find some familiar lyrics. According to The Local, five Swedish scientists got so bored writing about science that they placed a bet with each other to see who could squeeze in the most [...]

Lucius – “Wonderful” (My Morning Jacket Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Brooklyn quintet Lucius made their name in part on the strength of a flashy stage show in which the leading ladies harmonize powerfully while looking like each other’s mirror image. It’s an electrifying show that’s won the approval of collaborators Mavis Staples, Tweedy, and the Rentals, but don’t let those wildly entertaining performances trick you [...]
