iLoveMakonnen – “Tuesday (Remix)” (Feat. Drake)

2 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

“Club Going Up On A Tuesday” is a regional hit from the Atlanta sing-rapper iLoveMakonnen, one of those songs that’s just starting to bubble on the internet. That means it’s exactly the sort of song that Drake is going to suddenly jump on. Drake’s got a pattern of throwing verses on every new, blowing-up thing [...]

The Partysquad – “Wake ‘M Up” (Stereogum Premiere)

2 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Production duo the Partysquad have remixed A-Trak, lent beats to M.I.A.’s Matangi, scored a top-10 single on Beatport with “#PantsDown,” and racked up a dozen hits in their native Netherlands. Earlier this summer they raised their Stateside profile a bit with a Maya-assisted summer mixtape. Now they’re ready for an even bigger look: Tomorrow Mad [...]


NONI WO - "Solarstorm". An ice-bath of rainforest, an iceberg of hot shower; a hot-cold of thing. "Solarstorm" is texture and temperature, weight and heat. It's a pop-song all melting, freezing, evaporating on a horizontal plane. Folding patterns of...

Hear A New Song From Diplo & Skrillex’s Jack U

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Diplo and Skrillex are both at the top of their respective games — the former has the pop music world on lock and the latter is the reigning EDM king — so it’s interesting to see what they come up with when they work together. BBC Radio 1 broadcasted a set last from Diplo’s Las [...]

Watch Vic Mensa Cover The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” At Lollapalooza

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Up-and-coming Chicago rapper Vic Mensa took some time out of his Lollapalooza set to cover the White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.” I can’t tell if it’s the sound quality or if he filtered the song through a bunch of noise, but it’s a lot louder and more chaotic than the original and certainly managed to [...]

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

This week, I was something like the 75 millionth person to watch Kiesza’s “Hideaway” video, and holy hell, that thing is great. I don’t know what kept me from clicking play on it for this long. “Hideaway” was already a monster hit before I watched it, and the video has been up online since February; [...]

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

MTV has announced that that Beyoncé will perform at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards and will be awarded with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which has been given to artists like Madonna, the Beastie Boys, U2, George Michael, and Janet Jackson in the past. Last year, Justin Timberlake won the award and performed [...]

Spray Paint – “Cussin”

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Is there a regional reason why people say “swearing” or “cursing” instead of “cussing”? There must be. Whenever people talk about “swear words,” it always sounds weird and prissy, for reasons I can’t quite understand, and yet that’s how just about everyone in the media universe describes the words your parents would wish you didn’t [...]

Morrissey Announces Live Return, Disses Label, Laments Lack Of TV Promo In Latest Statement

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

As always, Morrissey’s latest post on his fan site True To You is mostly incoherent rambling. The main through-line seems to be his unhappiness with his latest album not getting the promotional push he thinks it deserves. He begins by thanking three Youtubers for uploading music videos of his new song “World Peace Is None [...]

The Spider Bags – Frozen Letter (album review)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

Garagicana!!! (pat. pend) I just googled that word and it doesn’t exist. Even double-checked on Google’s whiny little brother, Bing, as well. Nope. Garagicana, the exquisite mix of Garage and Americana. Making up utterly useless words is what happens when the family is away and I sit around drinking cool ones listening to new music. [...]

Tei Shi – “No Angel” (Beyoncé Cover)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Tei Shi is a Brooklyn-based bedroom-pop type with roots in both Canada and Colombia, and last year, she self-released her Saudade album; we posted her track “Nature Vs. Nurture.” She’s now recorded her own version of “No Angel,” the song from Beyoncé’s self-titled album that Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek co-wrote. In her cover, Tei Shi keeps [...]

Watch Chris Pratt Flawlessly Rap Dre’s “Forgot About Dre” Much To DJ’s Surprise

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Parks And Recreation and recent Guardians Of The Galaxy star Chris Pratt was interviewed by the radio program Whoolywood Shuffle and talked about his appreciation for Eminem’s Slim Shady LP and Dre’s Chronic 2001, which he said he listened to every day while living out of a van with his friend in Maui. When he [...]

Dana Buoy – “Everywhere” (Fleetwood Mac Cover)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Akron/Family drummer Dana Janssen, who records under the name Dana Buoy, ends his new EP, Preacher, with a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Everywhere” from their 1987 album Tango In The Night. Janssen puts his own starry-eyed synth spin on the contemporary rock classic while keeping the pumped-up workout jam vibe of the original. Listen below. [...]

The Internet Is Upset With Busta Rhymes’ Cameo In “Swagger Wagon” Car Commercial

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

In 2010, Toyota promoted its Sienna minivan by dubbing it the “Swagger Wagon,” complete with a music video that featured two WASPy suburban parents boasting about their vehicle in forced hip-hop slang. Last Friday, the company revived...Show More Summary

Photos: Burger A-Go-Go Fest 2014

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

This past weekend, Burger Records held a small festival called Burger A-Go-Go. That name implies a dance-filled occasion, but considering the goofy charm of the label, they’re probably referring to Monster A-Go-Go, one of the most painfully stupid movies ever filmed. Judging from its lineup, though, which includes Dum Dum Girls, the Muffs, and Best [...]

Deep Sea Diver – “One By One” (Stereogum Premiere)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Even if you haven’t listened to Deep Sea Diver, there’s a good chance you’ve heard frontwoman Jessica Dobson before. If you’ve seen Beck, the Shins, or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs live over the last several years, you’ll have seen Dobson shredding on the sidelines. She’s finally taken the time to focus on her own project, [...]

The Week In Pop: Shawn Mendes, TerRio, And Vine’s Six-Second Stars

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Whether busking, mailing out demo tapes, or uploading to MySpace or YouTube, conventional wisdom says you have less than one minute to catch the attention of music industry execs. Shawn Mendes did it in six seconds. The 15-year-old Toronto pop singer made his name on Vine, Google’s quick-hit video service, riding looped snippets of Katy [...]

Watch Vin Diesel Cover Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Vin Diesel’s gravelly, marblemouthed voice is an absolute natural wonder, which is presumably the reason he’s playing the voice of the walking alien tree Groot in the new Marvel movie Guardians Of The Galaxy. Last year, a video of Diesel singing a weirdly emotional cover of Rihanna’s “Stay” went viral, and someone at the British [...]
