Owen Pallett - "The Riverbed". Lately I have been caught up with Big Questions. Questions of why and what, a reverberating how. It's not an existential crisis, not a gin-soaked depression; I'm too happy for that. But, sometimes, som...

Manimal Vinyl’s Duran Duran tribute album Making Patterns Rhyme: A Tribute to Duran Duran has already given us Moby’s full-scale renovation of “Rio.” Now here’s Warpaint’s take on “The Chauffeur,” which maintains the eerie aura of the original while recasting it in Warpaint’s trademark ghostly psychedelic space.

Ray & Remora – “Gold Soundz” Video (Feat. Stephen Malkmus, Kim Gordon, Jeff Goldblum)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

We at Stereogum are apparently not the only people obsessed with celebrating shit from 1994 on its 20th anniversary; the synthpop duo Ray & Remora pay tribute to the entire year on their new 1994 EP, which includes covers of songs by Guided By Voices, Superchunk, Weezer, Sebadoh, and Dinosaur Jr. There’s also a cutesy [...]

Karl X Johan is actually Kalle X Johan — specifically, Stockholm residents Kalle Jönsson and Johan Tuvesson. “A Better Tomorrow” is the latest in a string of strong synthpop singles dating back to 2010?s “Flames,” which won a Swedish Grammy for its striking video, a series of extreme close-up detail shots of a couple getting [...]

Watch Jack White Talk “Seven Nation Army” And Cell Phones, Perform Lazaretto Songs On Conan

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

I’ve been lucky enough to see Jack White and Conan O’Brien in the same room together (I was basically an extra in this video), and the dynamic between those two is an awesome thing to witness. They really are friends, but there’s a big brother/little brother thing going on, too, where White is antsy and [...]

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Electric Würms is the side-project duo of longtime Flaming Lips partners Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd, and they’ve just announced the impending release of their new EP Musik, Die Shwer Zu Twerk, set to arrive later this summer.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The real best music video of the week is this: the debut effort from Tyler Breeze, bad-guy male model character in WWE’s developmental system, a sort of excessively narcissistic take on pre-personal journey Derek Zoolander. I didn’t put it on this week’s list because it’s not, strictly speaking, a good music video. But if you [...]

The Week In Pop: Miranda Lambert, Lucy Hale, And Country’s Strange State Of Flux

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The CMT Awards began with what passes for traditionalism these days: ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill, beards out, grooving through “La Grange,” a Texas blues-rock boot-scooter recorded 41 years ago. But before the opening medley was over, it quickly morphed into what passes for country these days. First came Florida Georgia Line, the [...]

Watch The Afghan Whigs Return To Letterman After 18 Years

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Afghan Whigs released their reunion album, Do The Beast, earlier this year, and they played the track “Matamoros” on Letterman last night. The last time the band performed on the show, it was in 1996, around the time of their album Black Love. What have we learned from this new video? Afghan Whigs are still [...]

Panopticon – “Chase The Grain” (Stereogum Premiere)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

There’s nothing else in the world that sounds like the music of Panopticon, the seven-year-old project of Louisville, Kentucky’s Austin “Lundr” Lunn (formerly of Anagnorisis, who released one of last year’s best metal albums). In his most striking work — most notably Panopticon’s excellent 2012 LP, Kentucky, as well as the band’s forthcoming Roads To [...]

Don Cheadle Crowdfunding Miles Davis Biopic

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Don Cheadle has talked about his hopes of making a Miles Davis biopic for quite a while, though that possibility has seemed less and less likely as time passed. To give some perspective, the last time we reported on this, Arcade Fire had released only one album and this was what dubstep sounded like. Now [...]

A. G. Cook – “Beautiful”

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

A.G. Cook may not be a name you recognize right now, but by December you will. Between his role as leader of the mysterious PC Music label and work with Hannah Diamond he’s responsible (along with his friend and colleague Sophie) for blurring the lines between pop, dance, and experimental music in revelatory ways. His [...]

Robyn Hitchcock – “The Ghost In You” (Psychedelic Furs Cover)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Robyn Hitchcock and Psychedelic Furs — two classic English rock stars of the 1970s together at last. Hitchcock covered the Furs’ 1984 single “The Ghost In You” for his upcoming The Man Upstairs, a collection built from “part well-known favorites, part personal discoveries, and part originals.” Hear Hitchcock’s warmly intimate acoustic take on the track [...]

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – “Deeper” Video

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The gifted Indiana rap knucklehead Freddie Gibbs and the head-blown Oxnard producer Madlib have been collaborating for a few years, and back in spring, they teamed up to release the collaborative album Piñata. Now, Gibbs stars in the video for the Piñata track “Deeper,” which Madlib and Gibbs first released as a single last year. [...]

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Jenny Lewis has a new album on the way — one that sounds pretty good so far — so she’s starting to pop all over the place again, including on the next episode of Scott Aukerman’s IFC series Comedy Bang! Bang! She did get her start acting after all. Below, watch Lewis and Zach Galifianakis [...]

This ’90s Grunge Bud Light Commercial Is Really Special

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Apparently back in the ’90s Budweiser ran a series of “Bud Light Spotlight” ads specially geared for local markets; according to this YouTube upload, more than 100 spots were produced in 50 markets each year from 1993-97, each one featuring Bud Light drinkers from a given locale. One of the Los Angeles ads aimed to [...]
