Tomboy – “Moths” (Stereogum Premiere)

3 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Tomboy is the musical moniker of NYC residents Sarah Aument and Will Shore, longtime friends who finally joined forces last year. The duo’s spacious electro-pop references everything from Björk to Chairlift to Dirty Projectors to Purity Ring. “Moths,” the final pre-release single from their self-titled EP, matches booming low-end and skittering island percussion with Aument’s [...]

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

The Leeds Band To Watch Adult Jazz specialize in a way-out art-pop sprawl, like Dirty Projectors if they were even less tethered to earth, or like Talk Talk if they’d spent some time on the warehouse weird-pop DIY circuit. The nine songs of the band’s debut album Gist Is sprawl across 51 minutes, and we’ve [...]

Glass Ghost – “Triangle” (Stereogum Premiere)

5 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Eliot Krimsky and Michael Johnson have been making music as Glass Ghost since the late 2000s, but they’ve slowed down lately for understandable reasons.

Olga Bell – “Stavropol Krai”

8 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Before she joined Dirty Projectors during the days of Swing Lo Magellan, Olga Bell was a Band To Watch. Now she’s taken some time to work on solo material again.

Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks – “Little Fang” Video

10 months agoMusic / Indie Music : Stereogum

Let’s hear it for literalism! “Little Fang” is the name of the first single from Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, the Animal Collective co-leader’s new band with Dirty Projectors’ Angel Deradoorian and Ponytail’s Jeremy Hyman. And so it makes perfect sense that the song’s video would concern the adventures of a vampire cat. Longtime Animal Collective [...]

When Will St. Vincent Make Her Rock Masterpiece?

The greatest concert experience I’ve ever had scared the hell out of me. It was in May 2011, at a tribute show to Michael Azerrad’s ode to the 1980s DIY scene, Our Band Could Be Your Life. The Dirty Projectors played Black Flag, Titus Andronicus put their sloppy scent all over the Replacements Stink EP, tUnE-yArDs made Sonic Youth even loopier.
