Titus Andronicus – “The Magic Morning” Short Film & “Fired Up”

At the end of the month, Titus Andronicus will release The Most Lamentable Tragedy, their massive and sprawling rock opera about manic depression. We’ve already heard a ton from the band: “Dimed Out,” “Fatal Flaw,” the entire Sorry About The Delay mixtape. And now the band has dropped a whole new motherlode on us. They’re… More »


St. Vincent Made A Mixtape For An 11-Year-Old On Her First Beats 1 Show

Annie Clark hosted her first Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music last night. The show is called St. Vincent’s Mixtape Delivery Service, and each week she’ll pick a lucky individual to get a mixtape personally curated by her “to serve as a soundtrack for whatever is going on in their lives,” as she explai… More »


Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – “The Right Stuff (3D Remix – Version 1)”

By Tom Breihan / 11:04 am

It’s always nice to see ’90s icons get together. Robert “3D” Del Naja is the sole remaining original member of Massive Attack, and he’s recently recorded a couple of remixes of “The Right Stuff,” a track from the recent Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds album Chasing Yesterday. Both versions of the song will be o… More »


Trust Fund – “Dreams” (Feat. Alanna McArdle)

By James Rettig / 9:33 am

We were big fans of Trust Fund’s debut album, No One’s Coming For Us, and the Bristol band has just put out a new single called “Dreams” that builds on the same poppy heartbreak of that record. It features vocals from Alanna McArdle in her first appearance since she left Joanna Gruesome earlier this month,… More »


Prince – “HARDROCKLOVER”

Prince has released another one-off track in the same vein as “WHAT IF” and “Baltimore” from earlier this year. This one’s called “HARDROCKLOVER,” and sees the star throwing down the gauntlet along genre lines: “Ain’t no rapper trying to be a singer/ Come on, make a move,” and right after shouting out Babyface: “R&B ain’t… More »


Helado Negro – “Young, Latin And Proud”

By Peter Helman / June 30, 2015 - 10:19 pm

Ecuadorian-American producer Roberto Carlos Lange makes woozy, bewitching electronic pop as Helado Negro. Following last year’s excellent Double Youth, he’s just shared a new single, “Young, Latin and Proud.” That title makes it sound like a grandly celebratory anthem, but it’s something softer and dreamier than that, as Lange seductively purrs his identity-affirming lyrics over… More »


Pharrell – “Freedom”

By Peter Helman / June 30, 2015 - 8:30 pm

Pop mastermind Pharrell debuted the studio version of his new song “Freedom” — which he’s already been playing live — as a part of today’s long-awaited Apple Music launch. Zane Lowe played the track on Beats 1, one of Apple Music’s new radio stations, and it also has an accompanying music video available for purchase… More »


Stream Scott Bartenhagen Black Dane EP

By Caitlin White / June 30, 2015 - 1:46 pm

The first song I heard from Central California songwriter Scott Bartenhagen was “Beacons,” which we premiered a few weeks ago. It’s a peaceful, pastoral track that turns dissonant toward the end in a burst of glowering chords, and the perfect introduction to Bartenhagen’s eclectic folk-jazz style. Today he’s shared the entirety of the Black DaneMore »


Mark Ronson – “I Can’t Lose (Lindstrøm Remix)” (Feat. Keyone Starr)

By Tom Breihan / June 30, 2015 - 1:26 pm

“Uptown Funk!” is great and all, but there’s a lot more than that to Mark Ronson’s laser-focused studio-pop album Uptown Special. One standout is “I Can’t Lose,” an expert piece of roller-rink pop that features the undiscovered R&B singer Keyone Starr. Ronson has now solicited a remix from Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, the Norwegian master of way-out… More »


Kieran Hebden (Four Tet) & Steve Reid – “Strings Of Life” (Derrick May Cover)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / June 30, 2015 - 1:22 pm

Before the legendary New York jazz drummer Steve Reid passed away in 2010, Kieran Hebden (bka Four Tet) collaborated with him on a variety of projects. They released three albums — Tongues (2007), NYC (2008), and the posthumous Live At The South Bank (2011) — and at one point covered the Detroit-based producer Derrick May’… More »


Big Talk – “What Happened To Delisa?”

By Lisa Brown / June 30, 2015 - 12:58 pm

It’s been four years since Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. debuted his solo project, Big Talk. He’s returning this summer with a new album, Straight In No Kissin’, which is preceded by the poppy single “What Happened To Delisa?” It starts off with a Strokes-like guitar riff and vocals, and soon picks up with a… More »


Band To Watch: Aquilo + “Better Off Without You (Body Language Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Melissa Locker / June 30, 2015 - 11:40 am

When your band’s fourth show ever is at Glastonbury, the pressure is on. Luckily, Aquilo — the project from 20-something Brits Ben Fletcher and Tom Higham — are up for the challenge. More »


Hear No Devotion’s New Song “Death Rattle” In Permanence Album Trailer

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / June 30, 2015 - 11:38 am

No Devotion emerged from the ruins of the Welsh nu-metal band Lostprophets, who broke up in 2013 when frontman Ian Watkins was charged with and later sentenced to 35 years in prison for child sex offense. Watkins’ crimes definitely damaged the band’s legacy, but in spite of it all, the remaining members of Lostprophets decided… More »


Ariana Grande – “Break Free (easyFun Remix)”

By James Rettig / June 30, 2015 - 11:26 am

PC Music has been quiet since the GFOTY controversy a few weeks ago, but they are slowly beginning to break their radio silence. GFOTY started tweeting again a couple of days ago, and the electronic music crew have just put out their latest release, a mix from easyFun. The identity of easyFun is still a… More »


ON AN ON – “Icon Love”

By Caitlin White / June 30, 2015 - 11:13 am

ON AN ON are one of those bands that exist because of another band’s failure — that’s my favorite kind. The group’s former band, Scattered Trees, had already booked studio time when they broke up, so Nate Eiesland, Ryne Estwing, and Alissa Ricci took the slot anyway, and went ahead and recorded ON AN ON’… More »


Tamaryn – “Softcore”

By Caitlin White / June 30, 2015 - 11:12 am

Tamaryn has been grinding out psychic glitter-pop for a few years now, but her upcoming third record, Cranekiss, feels like a high water mark for the New Zealand auteur. We’ve heard maximalist desire anthem “Hands All Over Me” — which we named one of the week’s best songs — and the gauzy, careening title track. More »


Painted Palms – “Tracers” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Lisa Brown / June 30, 2015 - 11:00 am

The first time I heard Painted Palms’ 2013 single “Spinning Signs,” I was instantly captivated (and slightly obsessed) by their psych-pop instrumentals. The band’s been quiet since Forever dropped last year, but now, cousins Reese Donohue and Christopher Prudhomme are back with a forthcoming sophomore album, Horizons. Although the duo collaborated on song ideas via… More »


Santigold – “Radio”

By James Rettig / June 30, 2015 - 10:59 am

What happened to Santi White? Ever since Santigold swapped out the “o” from her name, she’s been in descent. Her sophomore album, Master Of My Make Believe, never went anywhere, partly because of some major label messiness, but mostly because it was largely forgettable. In the years since, she’s been treading water with a serie… More »


Los Colognes – “Backseat Driver” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / June 30, 2015 - 10:23 am

Sometimes, Los Colognes sound like they’re dipping a ladle into the honey-sweet freewheeling of the Allman Brothers; other times, they steer that idling back into tightly focused, bluesy rock full of bleary imagery. It’s hard to hear them and not immediately think of the brothers Knopfler and that rootsy, jazz-leaning indolence that made Dire Strait… More »


Dirty Ghosts – “Cataract” (Premiere)

By Misha Sesar / June 30, 2015 - 9:59 am

San Francisco-based trio Dirty Ghosts’ new single “Cataract” will be featured on the band’s forthcoming sophomore album, Let It Pretend, as well as a soon-to-be-released Burger Records EP. Vocalist and guitarist Allyson Baker’s songwriting is heavily influenced by ’80s synth-punk acts, as well as fellow San Franciscan experimentalists Chrome. “Cataract” is upbeat and edgy, with… More »
