Jenny Hval – “Period Piece”

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Jenny Hval is a genius, don’t @ me. The Norwegian experimentalist’s forthcoming LP, Blood Bitch, is an exploration of vampire lore and menstruation. When she announced the album, Hval lead us on with one provocative question: I wonder… Do vampires menstruate? “Period Piece” is a punny title for a song that narrates a trip to […]

Hear Miguel Cover Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” In Fifty Shades Darker Trailer

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Fifty Shades Of Grey was part of the movie soundtrack resurgence and resulted in a few huge hits, including the Weeknd’s Grammy-winning “Earned It” and Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do. They’ll undoubtedly try to recreate that success for its sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, which comes out next February just in time for Valentine’s […]

Départe – “Ashes In Bloom”

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Australia and its neighbor New Zealand are both home to thriving metal communities. That part of the world has lately given rise to some of death metal’s most singular bands — specifically Ulcerate and Portal, each of whom has set up shop on the genre’s fringes and inspired cult-like fan bases. (The fact that “dissonant progressive […]

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

Photo: Amanda Marsalis In 2014, Angel Olsen had just released the excellent Burn Your Fire For No Witness and was one of the must-see acts of SXSW. I made it a point of seeing her early on Wednesday before the masses arrived. With that in mind, I dragged my buddy Jamey to The Mohawk (inside [...]

Their latest offering to his memory is a video for the 2012 Kirk Knight-produced track “Herban Legend,” which charts his legacy within […]

stream Carly Rae Jepsen's E•MO•TION: Side B

I feel like the average pop star dreams of writing one song as good as Carly Rae Jepsen's b-sides. One highlight: the early Madonna vibes are so strong on "First Time", which was first released on the Japan-only E•MO•TION REMIXED + that dropped earlier this year... Continue reading…

stream Vince Staples' Prima Donna EP

"War Ready", the incendiary, James Blake-produced opening track from Vince Staples' new Prima Donna EP, with its brilliant use of that iconic vintage 3000 verse, is already probably our most-played track of 2016... Continue reading…

Vince Staples – “’06” (Full Version)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last year, Vince Staples ended his great double album Summertime ’06 with “’06,” a deeply funky rap song that ended suddenly, after 48 seconds, with a burst of static. This was a very Vince Staples move: sacrificing a very good song just for the effect of jarring his audience, coming up with the most abrupt […]

Band To Watch: Slow Mass

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Let’s get one thing straight: Chicago’s Slow Mass is not a side project. Although drummer Josh Sparks and guitarist Josh Parks both play in the touring version of Into It. Over It., the quartet treats this as a full-time band, and it’s nothing short of a passion project. Each of the members comes from a […]

a few omissions from Pitchfork's excellent Best Songs of the 1970s list

We kind of love Pitchfork's list of the 200 best songs of the 1970s. Lists like these are next to impossible to compile, but theirs is a very good and balanced mix of the obvious and the obscure, spanning disco, dub, jazz, soul, new wave, punk, yacht rock and more, and you can listen to the whole playlist here.

Helena Deland – Baby

Here's a hauntingly beautiful new track from Montreal's Helena Deland, on which she seems to flip the possibly misheard "you're so baby" line from Ariel Pink's "Baby" cover (or maybe not) into an intoxicating and eerie ballad... Continue reading…

Sam Evian is the new solo moniker of Sam Owens, frontman of Brooklyn indie-rockers (and Stereogum Best New Band class of ’13) Celestial Shore.
