A few weeks back, Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas contributed a cover of the Velvet Underground’s “Run Run Run” to HBO’s Vinyl, and this week he’s back with another fresh VU cover.

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Survivor host Jeff Probst and Dave Grohl have a friendly ongoing prank war that stems from the time they first met. Probst set off the prank war by pretending to be Adam Levine before it epically backfired. Grohl got a bit of payback today on KROQ’s The Kevin and Bean Show with a prank based […]

Australian Britpop debtors DMA’s made their national U.S. television debut last night on Stephen Colbert with their acoustic ballad “Delete,” which has been floating around for a few years but also appears on their debut album Hills End, which came out a few weeks ago.

Reptilian – “Phantasm” (Stereogum Premiere)

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Perennial Void Traverse, the debut full-length from Norway’s Reptilian, crawls out from the ooze of old-school garages. The quartet play death metal like they’re from a place where the local Possessed was pulled back in to punk. Puffy pirate-shirt prog does not reside here. That said, Reptilian are sneaky. Their music is kill-everything, but it’s […]

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Band To Watch Meatbodies are putting out a new 7? at the end of the month. We’ve already heard the groovy, Sleater-Kinney-indebted A-side “Valley Girl,” and today they’ve shared the flip side: a stoned-out track called “Hibernation.” You can listen to it below. Meatbodies: Valley Girl / Hibernation by FAMOUS CLASS RECORDS / LAMC 7" […]

Diplo performed in Havana, Cuba as Major Lazer this past weekend, which marked one of the first concerts from a U.S. artist in the country since the restoration of diplomatic relations. This is the producer’s third interview with Rose over the past year, once with Skrillex and again alone. They drove around Havana and talked […]

video premiere: et aliae – Heaven

et aliae's beautiful Bach-referencing piano composition "Heaven" gets some soothing, Pure Moods-esque visuals, created by "motion fantasy" artist Kenaim. Kenaim says of the "moving artwork" he created for the song: Continue reading…

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

I ultimately decided not to put it on this list, but this video of a floppy-haired goofball playing a silly dance song on an instrument that’s roughly 50 bazillion times more complicated than a successfully executed game of Mousetrap is something you may need in your life. And on a vastly different end of the […]

On the new compilation The Long Road, a benefit album being released by the British Red Cross, Robert Plant, the king of all rock howlers, appears alongside newer artists like Kindness and Tinariwen.

Flume – “Never Be Like You feat. Kai (Disclosure Remix)”

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

It’s nice to get a little remix reciprocation going on a Thursday afternoon, especially when Flume and Disclosure are involved. Three years ago, Flume remixed Disclosure’s “You & Me” and today, Disclosure return the favor by remixing Flume’s “Never Be Like You.” Disclosure speed up the tempo a bit, replacing the stuttering synths and heavy […]

Palehound – “Molly” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

This is your brain on drugs! The video for Palehound’s “Molly” — off Ellen Kempner’s excellent Dry Food debut LP from last year — takes that age-old scare tactic and infamous PSA quite literally. It stars a cute little dude named EggGuy that gets fried up and served on a sandwich. After being eaten, he […]

Låpsley – “Cliff”

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Holly Fletcher’s output as Låpsley works in a circuitous sort of melancholy; she digs into a feeling and doesn’t let go. In the case of “Station” — still her best song — it was the sort of quiet despair you get knowing an insular moment in time is already over before it happens. “Cliff,” the […]

The I Don’t Cares – “Whole Lotta Nothin” Video

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The most famous Replacements video is hardly a video at all. The official clip for Tim anthem “Bastards Of Young” comprises footage of a stereo system playing the song for three and a half minutes. So although we would usually skip a half-assed submission like the I Don’t Cares’ new “Whole Lotta Nothin” video, which […]

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Yesterday, Elton John held a free surprise concert outside the site of the old Tower Records in West Hollywood, a place John frequented so often they’d open early just for him.

4 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The Who’s Pete Townshend released “Let My Love Open The Door,” a solo single that would become a classic-rock radio staple, in 1980. Now, 36 years later, Roger Daltrey, Townshend’s bandmate in the Who has recorded his own version of the song, and he’s done it for a good cause. As the Who’s website points […]
