Stream Young Fathers White Men Are Black Men Too

By Caitlin White / March 31, 2015
Young Fathers won the Mercury prize in 2014 for their album DEAD, but honestly the more interesting thing about them is that they're a rap trio from Edinburgh, Scotland. Listening to previously released singles like "Shame" and "Rain Or Shine," the closest comparison I came up with was TV On The… More »


Stream Fort Romeau Insides

By Caitlin White / March 31, 2015
London producer Mike Greene's hazy, atmospheric album Insides as Fort Romeau is out today. We've heard a few of the cuts already: the title track, "Not A Word" featuring Dublin producer New Jackson on vocals, and the pulsing, eight-minute "All I Want." Listening to the full album in one cohesive moment i… More »


Stream Wiz Khalifa & Ty Dolla $ign Talk About It In The Morning EP

By Tom Breihan / March 31, 2015
The L.A. singer and producer Ty Dolla $ign has been making sex-drunk, melodically rich R&B for a few years now, but his career really leveled up when he signed on with Taylor Gang, the label founded by the rudderless weed-rapper Wiz Khalifa. Now Ty has teamed up with his label boss for a free-download five-song… More »


Stream Denai Moore Elsewhere (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / March 31, 2015
Denai Moore has taken her time releasing an album. The 22-year-old singer/songwriter first emerged about two years ago, and worked on a series of EPs while she explored her sound. Above all, Elsewhere is an album about growing up, miniature traumas arranged with the simplicity of someone encountering them for the first time. More »


Stream Fred Thomas All Are Saved (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / March 31, 2015
Listening to Fred Thomas' All Are Saved often feels like traveling down the path of most resistance. Thoughts are thought and instantly contradicted, revelations made and then backtracked -- it's a beautiful mess of ideas and doubts, bold declarations and crippling neuroses. There is no easy way out, there are no simple answers. It i… More »


Stream Shlohmo Dark Red

By Tom Breihan / March 31, 2015
The L.A. bass-music producer Shlohmo makes gooey, melodic music that slinks and throbs in some darkly compelling ways. Last year, he teamed up with the great R&B singer Jeremih for the enjoyable-as-hell No More EP. Next week, he'll release his new solo instrumental album Dark Red. We've posted the early tracks "Emerge FromMore »


Upset – ’76 EP (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / March 31, 2015
Upset is something of a supergroup at this point. Previously, vocalist/guitarist Ali Koehler played drums in Vivian Girls and Best Coast, and Upset's current drummer, Patty Schemel, was formerly Hole's percussionist. Bass player Rachel Gagliardi is also in Slutever, and guitarist Lauren Freeman is a member of Long Beach pop punk garage outfit Benny The… More »


Stream The Go! Team Between The Scene Between

By Patrick Hosken / March 31, 2015
The latest Go! Team album, The Scene Between, is a gorgeous melange of chiming samples and propulsive instrumentation. Songwriter Ian Parton stitches together non-sequitur sounds seamlessly, and the results are enough to make your knees shaky -- look no further than the blown-out carnival fun of "Blowtorch" and the spiraling, foreign spice-market rush… More »


Stream Godmode’s American Music Compilation

By Tom Breihan / March 31, 2015
The now-defunct New York postpunk trio Mr. Dream founded the label Godmode a few years ago, and back then, it was a cassette label that focused on noise and postpunk. Last year, though, the label signaled a change of direction with the compilation Common Interests Were Not Enough To Keep Us Together. That… More »


Stream Weed Running Back (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 31, 2015
Weed's songs sound like layered linen. Instrumental fragments are fragile and wispy on their own, but stacked together, these small pieces create an impressive textural whole. Weed call Vancouver home, and despite being a city with as many scenes stacked within it as there are layers of molten haze on their album, Weed sound distinctly… More »


Stream American Wrestlers American Wrestlers

By Caitlin White / March 30, 2015
American Wrestlers is the latest project from Gary McClure, a musician who also played in Working For A Nuclear Free City for a number of years, and released his own album Wreaths. But his lo-fi, home recorded debut American Wrestlers easily eclipsed his past work and earned our Band To Watch distinction. Previously shrouded… More »


Stream Johnny Jewel’s Lost River Soundtrack

By Caitlin White / March 30, 2015
Johnny Jewel is helming the soundtrack and score for Lost River -- Ryan Gosling's directorial debut -- and has already shared several tracks from the project, including Chromatics' "Yes," his own "Bullytown" and Glass Candy's "Shell Game." The entire soundtrack is finally out today, and it's also streaming in full. The songs mostly… More »


Stream Toro Y Moi What For?

By Tom Breihan / March 30, 2015
Toro Y Moi's Chaz Bundick seems to find a whole new sound every year, and, even more impressively, he succeeds at all of them. On Toro Y Moi's last album Anything In Return, he was making slick, soulful dance-pop, and that was great. On last year's Michael, the album he released under hi… More »


Stream Waxahatchee Ivy Tripp

By Tom Breihan / March 30, 2015
When Katie Crutchfield went from solo-acoustic to full-band on 2013's Cerulean Salt, her second LP as Waxahatchee, she made one of 2013's best albums. On her new album Ivy Tripp, Crutchfield continues to stretch her sound out further, adding all sorts of new recording techniques while still keeping her style simple and bold and… More »


Stream The Mountain Goats Beat The Champ

By Tom Breihan / March 30, 2015
Last night, WWE held what was probably its best Wrestlemania in years in San Francisco. And if you're still jacked up enough from it that you need to blast more pro-wrestling shit through your brain (guilty), allow me to suggest a course of action. Actually, I'll suggest this whether you give a shit about wrestling… More »


Stream Violent Reaction Marching On

By Tom Breihan / March 25, 2015
If you've been thinking that you'd like to pay more attention to what's happening in hardcore but don't know where to start, here's a good jumping-in point: The hard-as-fuck UK straightedge band Violent Reaction, whose debut album Marching On arrives next week. British oi and streetpunk have been huge influences on American hardcore going back… More »


Stream Faith Healer Cosmic Troubles

By Caitlin White / March 24, 2015
On the opening track for Faith Healer's debut record Cosmic Troubles, Jessica Jalbert clutches onto the train of "Sweet Jane"'s dress and drags her down into an anti-drug PSA. It's the perfect opener for an album that's riddled with sly, self-deprecating references to classic, bluesy acts like the Velvet Underground, the Band, and '60… More »


Stream Only Real Jerk At The End Of The Line

By Tom Breihan / March 24, 2015
Imagine if Mike Skinner, better known as the Streets, had somehow been the frontman of Len, of "Steal My Sunshine" fame. That's pretty much the vibe of Only Real, the slurry-goofy UK sing-rap trickster. We've posted his "Can't Get Happy" and "Cadillac Girl" videos. And next week, he'll release his full-length Jerk AtMore »


Stream Follakzoid III

By Caitlin White / March 24, 2015
Although the title might deceptively imply that this is Follakzoid's third album, III is actually the follow-up to their 2013 debut II. We've previously heard "Electric" from the album, but now the entire four-song release is available to stream. The Chilean psych rock group, composed of Diego Lorca, Juan Pablo Rodriguez, and Domingo Garcia-Huidobro,… More »


Stream The Staves If I Was (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / March 24, 2015
If I Was is an album about coming undone and all the possibilities that pass before your eyes while you're unraveling. It's the second full-length album from the Staves, a trio of English sisters whose voices caught the ear of Justin Vernon. The Bon Iver founder not only produced their album but also workedMore »
