Download Chief Keef’s Bang 3 Mixtape, Earlier Than Expected

By Peter Helman / August 2, 2015 - 12:30 pm

Since getting dropped by his label last year, exiled young Chicago drill star Chief Keef has already put out four mixtapes and an album. He’s been spending the past month or so feuding with Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel after the hologram benefit concert that he tried to put on was repeatedly shut down, but now… More »

Stream Night Beds Ivywild

By Caitlin White / July 31, 2015 - 11:48 am

To follow up his debut album as Night Beds, Winston Yellen wanted to make it clear from the start that Ivywild would be nothing like Country Sleep. “Me Liquor & God” was the first single — and comes early on the full-length tracklist too — and while he’s still grappling with the same demons, the… More »

Stream Mac DeMarco’s Another One And Read His Track-By-Track Commentary

By James Rettig / July 31, 2015 - 11:21 am

We’ve pretty much already heard every track from Mac DeMarco’s upcoming new mini-album, Another One, whether because he’s already officially put out over half of the eight songs featured, or because it’s been “out there” for a long while. So, though it may seem a little anti-climactic, the whole thing is now officially streaming over… More »

Stream Dougie F Block Party

By Caitlin White / July 30, 2015 - 5:34 pm

Ahead of the speedily approaching Mad Decent Block Party, one of the label’s own rappers has put out a new mixtape. Dougie F is a member of DJ Sliink’s Newark-based Cartel Music crew, and he filters Jersey Club through an eclectic mix of Atlanta trap, West Coast funk, and New York lyricism. Listen to BlockMore »

Stream Half Japanese’s Surprise, Six-Sided Bingo Ringo EP

By Misha Sesar / July 30, 2015 - 4:01 pm

Longtime art-punk band Half Japanese influenced countless groups, most notably Neutral Milk Hotel and Nirvana (Kurt Cobain was allegedly wearing a Half Japanese shirt when he died). The lineup changed countless times with the inimitable Jad Fair as the sole permanent member. Their catalog spans from 1977 to the present, including seven EPs, 14 LPs,… More »

Stream Krallice’s Surprise New Album Ygg Huur

By Michael Nelson / July 30, 2015 - 12:08 pm

Just two days ago, Black Market bro Doug Moore and I were chatting about Krallice — he’d seen them at Brooklyn’s Acheron a night earlier, where they’d played some new songs. Said Doug: “The new Krallice material is fucking awesome and real different from their older stuff…they floored me.” I totally believe it. Krallice are… More »

Download Tink Winter’s Diary 3

By Caitlin White / July 30, 2015 - 11:49 am

Tink is one of the most promising musicians out of Chicago right now and has been known locally for years. At the top of 2014, her Winter’s Diary 2 gained considerable attention for the singer and rapper, and Timbaland soon got involved in her career. That’s where things kind of went sour. The ultimate flo… More »

Stream HEALTH Death Magic

By Tom Breihan / July 30, 2015 - 11:10 am

It’s been six years since the last HEALTH album, the 2009 sophomore effort Get Color. And while they’ve kept busy doing things like video-game soundtracks, their new album Death Magic sounds like the work of a band that’s spent its time away honing a whole new sound. Death Magic takes the astral noise-rock of the… More »

Stream Worriers Imaginary Life

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / July 30, 2015 - 10:57 am

The magic of Worriers lies in their ability to re-write their identity through a political lens. Their songs may sound like prototypical punk, but the ideas that they convey through this medium are, in many cases, issues that a lot of contemporary punk bands standing remotely close to the spotlight wouldn’t feel comfortable weighing i… More »

Stream Chelsea Wolfe Abyss

By James Rettig / July 30, 2015 - 10:57 am

Preeminent goth-rocker Chelsea Wolfe’s fifth album, Abyss, officially comes out next week but, as these things now go, it’s streaming early via NPR. This is the first record that Wolfe really commits to the whole metal thing she’s been flirting with throughout her career — the first thee songs on the album are heavy a… More »

Stream Adult Mom Momentary Lapse Of Happily

By James Rettig / July 28, 2015 - 2:23 pm

When I was sixteen, I started to bring a purse along with me to school. Well, OK, it wasn’t a purse so much as it was a repurposed tote bag, because I was neither cool or fashionable at the time, but what it represented to me was my first break with prescribed gender norms. It… More »

Stream Gunplay Living Legend

By Tom Breihan / July 27, 2015 - 12:10 pm

A couple of miracles today: Gunplay, the bloodthirsty Miami rapper who has been wrecking shit on mixtapes for years, is finally getting to release a major-label album. That’s the first miracle. The second miracle is that it fucking rules, presenting the furious mixtape Gunplay without diluting it for mainstream acceptance. This is a bone-hard, uncompromising… More »

Stream CFCF Radiance And Submission

By James Rettig / July 24, 2015 - 4:21 pm

For his third album, Radiance And Submission, Montreal folk experimentalist CFCF (aka Mike Silver) took the tight, muscular compositions that marked his first two records and stretched them out until they were only sinew and whispers. His music was sparse before, but never this bleak and unrelentingly gorgeous. We’ve heard two tracks from the release… More »

Stream Albert Hammond Jr. Momentary Masters

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / July 24, 2015 - 10:59 am

When we profiled Albert Hammond Jr., the Strokes guitarist spoke at length about his new solo LP Momentary Masters, which marks his first full-length solo release since 2008’s ¿Cómo Te Llama? It also marks Hammond’s first full-length release since getting sober five years ago. We’ve heard several spiny singles off of the new record, but… More »

Stream Seapony A Vision (Stereogum Premiere)

By Misha Sesar / July 24, 2015 - 9:35 am

The longtime couple Jenny Weidl and Danny Rowland recorded and wrote plenty of gentle shoegaze together before moving to Seattle in 2010, where they met bassist Ian Brewer. Together the trio formed Seapony with the help of a vintage drum machine (which was later traded for the real live percussionist Aaron Voros). A Vision i… More »

Stream Migos Yung Rich Nation

By Tom Breihan / July 24, 2015 - 8:12 am

There’s been a recent trend for rappers to release major-label albums that sound like slightly-tweaked version of their mixtapes. This is obviously a very good thing, and so I’m delighted to report that Migos’ long-awaited official debut Yung Rich Nation is the latest example. Back when the Atlanta trio appeared on the cover of the… More »

Download DJ Mustard 10 Summers: The Mixtape Vol.1

By Tom Breihan / July 23, 2015 - 1:14 pm

The hard, blippy, propulsive sound of L.A. producer DJ Mustard has been the dominant sound of West Coast rap for the past few years. And while Mustard released a proper album called 10 Summers last year, his new mixtape, the confusingly titled 10 Summers: The Mixtape, Vol. 1 is the first of those that he’… More »

Stream Antarctigo Vespucci Leavin’ La Vida Loca

By Caitlin White / July 22, 2015 - 12:01 pm

Antarctigo Vespucci have the hardest name to spell and the best album title. Their first full-length is called Leavin’ La Vida Loca and I want to applaud them for that pun right off the bat, before even getting into how good the record sounds. Chris Farren (Fake Problems) and Jeff Rosenstock (formerly of Bomb The… More »

Stream Rat Boy Neighbourhood Watch

By Grace Birnstengel / July 20, 2015 - 5:49 pm

Don’t confuse Essex’s Rat Boy with the hip-hop trio Ratking or the terrible 1986 movie Ratboy. Rat Boy is Jordan Cardy, a 19-year-old who definitely exists in his own category, but what that category is exactly I have no idea. His new 23-minute mixtape, Neighborhood Watch, is a mind-boggling mix of reggae, rap, hip-hop, garage… More »

Stream Philadelphia Collins Derp Swervin’ EP (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / July 20, 2015 - 1:55 pm

Philadelphia Collins’ debut EP, Derp Swervin’, is more a disparate collection of ideas than a cohesive whole. It’s the new project of Speedy Ortiz/Grass Is Green guitarist Devin McKnight and Ovlov drummer Theo Hartlett, and they round up vocalists from around the Boston area to contribute their own take on things. There’s Palehound’s Ellen Kempner,… More »
