Stream Cold Mailman Everything Aflutter (Stereogum Premiere)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Oslo-based quintet Cold Mailman made waves a couple years ago for their powerful brand of synthpop and the magnificent surrealist video treatments of their songs “Time Is Of The Essence” and “My Recurring Dream“, the latter of which we named one of the best videos of 2013. Their excellent fourth full-length, Everything Aflutter, is out […]

A-1 – “Unpredictable (The Repo Man)” Video

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

A-1 has that kind of screwed-up, comic-book flow that made Kendrick Lamar a beloved, cult figure in rap even before Good Kid M.A.A.D City came out. A-1, aka Adam Traore, manipulates the pronunciation of words like Play-Doh, skewering the “pussy money weed flow” and the illogical structure of retirement in the same verse. He’s splitting […]

In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that relates in some way to their recently published book. Previous contributors include Bret Easton Ellis, Kate Christensen, Kevin Brockmeier, T.C. Boyle, Dana Spiotta, Amy Bloom, Aimee...

Watch Ryley Walker Cover Van Morrison In His Take Away Show

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The French website La Blogothèque has been on a roll lately with its Take Away Shows video series, in which we see artists playing unamplified and in natural light. The latest participant is Chicago’s Ryley Walker, who released Primrose Green, a lovely album of ornate ’70s-style psych-folk, earlier this week. The Blogothèque crew filmed him […]

Darkstar & Hayden Thorpe – “Temporary Secretary” (Paul McCartney Cover)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Paul McCartney’s 1980 synth bugout “Temporary Secretary” has long been regarded as one of the weirdest and possibly best songs of the man’s solo career. And as an appropriately random one-off, the UK electronic pop trio Darkstar has teamed up with Wild Beasts frontman Hayden Thorpe to record their own version of the song. In […]

Chief Keef – “Faneto (Remix)” (Feat. Lil Bibby, Lil Herb, King Louie & Lil Durk)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

When Chicago’s drill music came to prominence a few years ago, arcane beefs and gang alignments kept some of the scene’s brightest lights from jumping on songs together. Drill may have faded from the national imagination, but these guys are all still good at rapping. And now, for what I believe is the first time […]

Watch Rihanna Prank Jimmy Kimmel With A “Bitch Better Have My Money” Wake-Up Call

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Jimmy Kimmel is a notorious prankster, so for this April Fool’s Day, Rihanna decided to turn the tables. She showed up at Kimmel’s house in the dead of night, snuck in with the help of his assistant, and woke him up with a flashing-light filled performance of her new single “Bitch Better Have My Money.” […]

Preview A Previously Unreleased White Stripes Recording From Third Man Records’ Latest Vault Package

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Every once in a while, Jack White’s Third Man Records will take some older music and make vinyl art-objects out of it, sending the results out to whoever subscribes to its Vault Package series. The latest Vault Package is given over to Loretta Lynn’s 2004 album Van Lear Rose. White produced the country legend’s comeback […]

Hot Chip – “Atomic Bomb (John Talabot Remix)” (William Onyeabor Cover)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Two years ago, David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label put out a compilation of old tracks from the little-known African synth artist William Onyeabor. Last year, some of those songs were reimagined for a remix album, including a cover from Hot Chip of the 1978 track “Atomic Bomb.” And earlier today, John Talabot shared his remix […]

Label Markets Are Odd

I really like the Indepedent Label Markets I travel around to on a regular basis, but they are strange things to go to, I have to confess. Meeting devoted fans of our releases in places like London and Inverness who can go through the whole display and point out no more than maybe one or […]

Rob St. John & Woodpigeon Split 10?

It’s taken a while for this to come together, but we can now announce a Split 10? release by Rob St. John and Woodpigeon called Young Sun | Trouble Comes. Released on the 20th April, you can actually pre-order one here and we’ll post them out a wee bit in advance, because for once we’re […]

Stream Denai Moore Elsewhere (Stereogum Premiere)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Denai Moore has taken her time releasing an album. The 22-year-old singer/songwriter first emerged about two years ago, and worked on a series of EPs while she explored her sound. Above all, Elsewhere is an album about growing up, miniature traumas arranged with the simplicity of someone encountering them for the first time. These are […]

Led Zeppelin – “Brandy & Coke (Trampled Under Foot)” Interactive Video

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Led Zeppelin are in the midst of a massive reissue project, and that means we’re probably going to be getting all sorts of unearthed rarities and early versions of tracks. “Brandy & Coke” is just that — an early version of “Trampled Under Foot” that they band shared on their website back in February. (Similarly, […]

Flyying Colours – “Running Late” (Stereogum Premiere)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

As an American and an annoying stickler for spelling, I find Australian shoegaze quartet Flyying Colours’ name a bit maddening (that extra u and an extra y!). I’m mostly joking, but their music would be more than enough to soothe any irritation, a heady balm of smeared guitar textures and sharp pop sensibilities. After “Not […]

Lower Dens takeover: Brian Eno/Daniel Lanois

Together they made albums like U2’s Unforgettable Fire that are the gold standard for tone... Read more »

Tanlines – “Invisible Ways”

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Tanlines already asserted that there would be “lots and lots of guitars on their sophomore album Highlights, and they weren’t kidding. Their first new single “Slipping Away” funneled understated melancholy through a chirpy web of guitars, but “Invisible Ways” lopes slowly along, Eric Emm’s morose voice flanked by mournful harmonies. It’s far more America than […]
