Taylor Swift – “Blank Space” Video

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Taylor Swift’s new album 1989 is — in this writer’s opinion, anyway — really, really great. But I can agree with the anti-Swift brigade on one point: “Shake It Off,” the album’s first single and video, was straight trash when viewed from pretty much every conceivable angle. She’s now made another video, for the cheeky, [...]

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Later this month, Soundgarden will drop the box-set rarities collection Echo Of Miles: Scattered Across The Path upon the world, and we’ve already posted the band’s re-recording of their 1989 song “Storm.” The same collection also includes a cover of Sly And The Family Stone’s 1969 soul-funk classic “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin),” [...]

Next week, the British new romantic duo Tears For Fears will release a massive six-disc reissue of Songs From The Big Chair, their enormously successful 1985 album. The deluxe reissue will include a pile of unreleased music, including the track you can hear below. “Head Over Heels” is one of many of the original album’s [...]

Upcoming Toad Gigs

After a wee break and a couple of house shows, we actually have quite a lot of gigs coming up in the next little while, and that’s without even having thought about our New Year’s House Gig yet. Obviously you are morally obliged to come to absolutely all of these shows and if you don’t […]

Beth Orton – “River” (Joni Mitchell Cover)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

English folk singer Beth Orton has been pretty quiet since the release of her 2012 album Sugaring Season, but she’s contributed to an upcoming Amazon holiday compilation called All Is Bright. Her contribution comes in the form of a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “River” from her classic Blue album. (She’s played the song before in [...]

Clean Bandit – “Rather Be (DJ Mustard Remix)”

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

A few weeks ago, our own Chris DeVille used his Week In Pop column to look at Clean Bandit, the British quartet who combined poppy EDM with classical and scored a sort of novelty hit in the process. And now DJ Mustard, the dominant West Coast rap producer, has remixed “Rather Be” in his own [...]

Superchunk – “Come Pick Me Up” (Ryan Adams Cover)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Last week, Superchunk frontman Mac McCaughin fulfilled a Halloween tradition by sharing a solo cover of the Sisters Of Mercy’s “First And Last And Always.” This week, he’s assembled his full band to cover “Come Pick Me Up,” a classic from Ryan Adams’ 2000 album Heartbreaker and arguably the greatest song Adams has ever written. [...]

Yelling “Parklife!” At Russell Brand Is A Thing Now

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

In America, the British comedian Russell Brand is mostly known for being obnoxious and British. In the UK, he’s famous for speaking in verbose syntactic jumbles. And as The Independent notes, some guy on Twitter figured out that it’s funny to yell “Parklife!” after everything the man says, and it’s taken off. On Blur’s 1994 [...]

Watch Foo Fighters & Trombone Shorty Turn “This Is A Call” Into A 10-Minute Jam

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

I remember the exact moment I turned on Foo Fighters, although frankly it felt more like they were the ones turning on me. I went to see the Foos at Hara Arena in Dayton in 2003 (openers: Pete Yorn and My Morning Jacket), and instead of playing “Monkey Wrench” straight, recreating the final verse’s titanic [...]

First Aid Kit – “Walk Unafraid” (R.E.M. Cover)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

First Aid Kit covered R.E.M.’s Up track “Walk Unafraid” for the soundtrack to Reese Witherspoon’s new backpacking movie Wild. Whereas the original broods and jangles in equal measure, First Aid Kit’s version takes a dark-tinged chamber-folk turn. Maybe this is an outrageous thing to say, but I’m pretty sure this cover is a vast improvement [...]

She & Him – “Oh No, Not My Baby” (Goffin And King Cover)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

A month from now, the Zooey Deschanel/M. Ward duo She & Him will release their album Classics, a collection of standards recorded live with an orchestra. We’ve heard their versions of Dusty Springfield’s “Stay Awhile” and Frank Sinatra’s “Time After Time.” Now, they’ve shared their version of “Oh No, Not My Baby,” a song that [...]

The Coathangers – “Sex Beat” (The Gun Club Cover)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Atlanta garage punks the Coathangers have a giddy and hectic and erratic sound that belongs entirely to them. But on a new split single with labelmates These Arms Are Snakes, they’re taking on another band’s style. On that split, the Coathangers cover “Sex Beat,” a song from dark, rockabilly-infused L.A. punk originals the Gun Club. [...]

Watch Another Spooky Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper Teaser

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Panda Bear has put out another teaser for his upcoming new album, Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper. It features the same Grim Reaper as the first teaser, but things get a lot crazier this time: it starts freaking out and rips the stuffed panda bear in half until there’s nothing left, all while the [...]

Happy Halloween

It's that time of year again when the children of the world dress up in all sort of spooky, scary and worryingly creepy costumes in a bid to secure enough sweets to rot an elephants tusk. So to celebrate the costume wearing, tooth rotting festival here are some tracks and acts with a loose connection to All Hallows Eve. Show More Summary

Team Spirit – “Satisfaction” Video

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Team Spirit, the Brooklyn garage-rockers led by the former Passion Pit keyboardist Ayad Al Adhamy, have built up an enviable catalog of goofy, fun music videos. Their new clip, for “Satisfaction,” might not be their best, but it still has the anarchic spirit of its predecessors. Director Alex Russek shot the video at New York’s [...]

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Horror Movie Guide

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Kids have their fictional heroes. For some it might be Batman or Spider-Man or Katniss Everdeen. They’re usually good guys. Ariel Pink’s childhood hero was a villain: a burn victim with a razor glove and a passion for murdering teens while shouting some darkly comic puns. He had seen horror movies before A Nightmare On [...]

She & Him – “Time After Time” (Frank Sinatra Cover)

6 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The Zooey Deschanel/M.Ward duo She & Him signed to Columbia earlier this year, and last week, we learned the details of Classics, their first album as a major-label act. The album is a set of jazz and pop standards, which the duo recorded live with an orchestra. We’ve heard their take on Dusty Springfield’s “Stay [...]

PJ Harvey has released a cover of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ 1994 track “Red Right Hand” that she recorded for the BBC TV series Peaky Blinders. It’s her second new recording since 2011?s Let England Shake — the other was a political protest song that was put out in August 2013 called “Shaker [...]
