Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment’s long-awaited Surf mixtape has finally arrived.

Stream Malportado Kids Total Cultura

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / May 28, 2015 - 1:35 pm

Providence, RI’s Malportado Kids make music that casual observers might label as “world music” if they weren’t aware that the band’s members, Victoria Ruiz and Joey La Neve DeFrancesco, also front the prominent political punk band Downtown Boys, who just released their latest record, Full Communism. My personal beef with a genre label like “world… More »

Stream Recycle Culture Trapped Goddess EP

By Tom Breihan / May 28, 2015 - 12:18 pm

We last heard from the mysterious one-man project Recycle Culture back in November, when he released the lovely AYA EP. And now he’s returned with an equally lovely EP, this one called Trapped Goddess. This one is four tracks long, and it’s made up of shimmering, synthy, vaguely ambient soundscapes with breathy, muffled-in-reverb female vocal… More »

Q&A: Christopher Owens On His Back-To-Basics Surprise Album Chrissybaby Forever

By T. Cole Rachel / May 27, 2015 - 1:00 pm

Last week, Christopher Owens released the song “Selfish Feelings” along with unexpected news about a new solo album, Chrissybaby Forever. For those who’ve been following Owens’ career, it represents a scrappy return to form. Recorded in San Francisco with engineer J.J. Wiesler, Chrissybaby is arguably the most Girls-ish thing Owens has released since that band… More »

Download Kevin Gates Murder For Hire Mixtape

By Tom Breihan / May 27, 2015 - 9:53 am

Last week, the Louisiana rap monster Kevin Gates threw a hellacious new track called “Khaza” out into the world. As it turns out, that new song is one of seven on a new EP-length Gates mixtape called Murder For Hire. The tape follows up last year’s great Luca Brasi 2 tape, and it has Gate… More »

Stream Communions Communions EP

By Tom Breihan / May 26, 2015 - 2:58 pm

Communions, a young band from Copenhagen, come from the same Danish punk scene that gave us bands like Iceage, and they’ve got some of the same chilly sparseness that some of those bands bring. But Communions also have gifts for melody and for woozy, spangly guitar sounds that make them unique in their scene. Last… More »

Stream Jamie xx In Colour

By Chris DeVille / May 26, 2015 - 2:17 pm

We’ve been telling you for a while that Jamie xx’s understated rave-pop opus In Colour is one of the best albums of the year; now you can hear it for yourself. After sharing the immensely promising advance singles “Gosh,” “Loud Places,” and “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” the xx’s sonic mastermind is streaming… More »

Stream Pinecones Sings For You Now (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / May 26, 2015 - 12:26 pm

Most people who aren’t from the South imagine it as a swampy, humid wilderness full of forgotten relics, guitar circles, and mystical folklore. As long as you imagine that guitar circle gone electric, you’re not that far away from Athens/Atlanta outfit Pinecones. The band drew their name from the existential, pastoral nature of Henry David… More »

A$AP Rocky’s At.Long.Last.A$AP Is Out Now, A Week Early

By Chris DeVille / May 26, 2015 - 12:00 am

This weekend A$AP Rocky’s At.Long.Last.A$AP became the latest high-profile album to leak early, and now Rocky has released the project a week ahead of schedule to combat the leak. The Long.Live.A$AP follow-up was tipped for release at midnight tonight, but it ended up going on sale a few minutes beforehand. You’ve heard “Lord Pretty FlackoMore »

Download King Louie Drilluminati 3 (God Of Drill)

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 9:19 am

Chicago rap headknocker King Louie was helping to develop the drill music sound back when Chief Keef was still just a problem child, and he always seems to summon his greatest fire when he’s working on his Drilluminati mixtape series. Drilluminati, from 2012, and Drilluminati 2, from 2013, both landed in our Mixtape Of The… More »

Stream Diamond Youth Nothing Matters + “Thought I Had It Right” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / May 19, 2015 - 12:07 pm

One iota of distortion into “No Control” is exactly when I became a Diamond Youth fan. Their rippling, bummer euphoria is exactly the kind of breakneck, anthemic guitar music that still appeals to me, and their debut album Nothing Matters comes out today. In anticipation of that, we’re premiering the bloody, black and white video… More »

Stream Little Wings Explains (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / May 19, 2015 - 11:19 am

The quavering amiability of Kyle Field’s backwards, barroom voice lies somewhere beyond its unsteady boundaries. There’s a smirking rebellion to all things Little Wings that’s endlessly appealing, a knowing quality that’s genuinely interested in slippage — the space between language and meaning, signifier and signified. Field glides by on his threadbare falsetto, delivering phrases with… More »

Stream Remy Banks higher. + “exhale.” Video

By Caitlin White / May 18, 2015 - 3:28 pm

Remy Banks is dead-set on putting New York back on the map. Along with his roles in the scruffy Queens hip-hop collectives World’s Fair and Children Of The Night, Banks is finally releasing his debut solo project higher. The tape tends toward moodier, introverted beats replete with brass, and Banks channels a golden era New… More »

Stream Nocturnal Sunshine Nocturnal Sunshine

By Caitlin White / May 18, 2015 - 2:18 pm

British-Japanese deep house producer Maya Jane Coles once again donned the cloak Nocturnal Sunshine to release a new album of silky, gloomy dubstep, and you can stream the self-titled release in full today. We’ve previously heard the itchy, addicting “Take Me There,” and the ominous, woozy “Believe,” and the rest of the album continues to… More »

Stream Dr. Yen Lo Days With Dr. Yen Lo

By Tom Breihan / May 18, 2015 - 1:23 pm

The Brooklyn rapper Ka likes to do things on his own. Most of the time, he raps and produces everything on his records by himself. He releases those records on his own label, and sometimes he sells them hand-to-hand outside record stores. He directs and edits his own videos. And his meditative, incantory take o… More »

Stream Unknown Mortal Orchestra Multi-Love

By James Rettig / May 18, 2015 - 8:51 am

Multi-Love is the first Unknown Mortal Orchestra album that Portland-by-way-of-New-Zealand frontman Ruban Nielson didn’t record entirely alone, and it shows. He feels like isolated here, and the record’s pull towards soul and R&B feels natural after the more insular psychedelia of the first two records. So far, we’re only heard the title track and “Can’tMore »

Stream Teklife and Treated’s Mic Terror’s Live From Your Mama’s House EP

By Caitlin White / May 14, 2015 - 12:42 pm

Chicago’s footwork collective Teklife and Treated Crew have combined forces to release a new joint EP, Mic Terror’s Live From Your Mama’s House. DJ Rashad and Mic Terror planned the EP prior to Rashad’s tragic death in the spring of 2014. DJ Spinn, DJ Earl, Taso, DJ Taye, DJ Gantman, and Mano all provided beat… More »

Stream God Damn Vultures

By Caitlin White / May 14, 2015 - 10:48 am

Aside from having the best band name of 2015, God Damn also make absolutely punishing noise-rock. At some points on their debut album Vultures it’s almost impossible to believe that this assault is coming out of just two guys. We premiered the title track off British power duo Thom Edward and Ash Weaver’s debut, and… More »

If You Missed Their Conference Call, You Can Now Stream Tanlines’ Highlights On Demand

By James Rettig / May 13, 2015 - 6:06 pm

Last week, Tanlines debuted their new album Highlights via conference call, and now they’re making the record available to those who weren’t around for the call-in time or didn’t want to listen to an album through their shitty phone speaker. On their genius Netflix-parodying website, the new album is available to “binge-listen,” and according to… More »

Stream Thee Oh Sees Mutilator Defeated At Last

By Tom Breihan / May 13, 2015 - 4:44 pm

Californian garage-psych overlords Thee Oh Sees are one of the most dependably badass live bands on the indie rock touring landscape, and they continue to crank out new records like there’s no tomorrow, hiatuses be damned. The band’s new album Mutilator Defeated At Last is the band’s ninth studio full-length, and that’s not counting the… More »
