SOAK – “Immigrant Song” (Led Zeppelin Cover)

By Caitlin White / 10:16 am

Last time SOAK did did a cover, she was singing us to sleep in Annie Clark’s dystopian future with a version of “Digital Witness.” Now, 18-year-old Bridie Monds-Watson has tackled Led Zeppelin’s iconic “Immigrant Song.” A stippled synthetic bassline underlies her brooding, restrained take, and she never strays into the kerosene explosion that made Robert… More »


Spirit Club – “Fast Ice” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / 10:08 am

Nathan Williams’ Spirit Club just released their self-titled debut album last week, yet they’re already on to releasing material from LP2. “Fast Ice” is our first taste of the band’s next batch of songs, and it continues applying off-kilter psych idiosyncrasies to the beachy alt-rock Williams made his name on. “I’m so alone, but you’ll… More »


Robert Smith – “There’s A Girl In The Corner” (The Twilight Sad Cover)

By Tom Breihan / 9:50 am

If you’re listening for it, it’s easy to hear the influence of the Cure in everything that gloomy Scottish postpunkers the Twilight Sad have ever done. And it turns out that the admiration is mutual. The Twilight Sad are about to release “It Never Was The Same,” a track from their 2014 album Nobody WantsMore »

By James Rettig / May 21, 2015 - 6:24 pm

Last year, Todd Terje put out It’s Album Time, his first full-length collection of songs. Since then, he’s released a series of singles from the album, all with their own new remixes.

Ariel Pink – “I Need A Minute”

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 5:53 pm

L.A.-based destroyed pop experimentalist Ariel Pink contributed a new song to the movie Heaven Knows What. The film is based on Arielle Holmes’ forthcoming memoir about heroin addiction, Mad Love In New York City, and features a groggy, puppet voice that’s been deeply pitch-shifted voice and mostly sings “I need a minute / I need… More »


Prinzhorn Dance School – “Reign (Shit Robot Remix)”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 5:04 pm

Prinzhorn Dance School, the terse UK postpunk duo, and Shit Robot, the playful New York house producer, are both longtime fixtures of the DFA label. But the two acts have basically nothing in common musically besides a love of elemental rhythm. So it’s cool to hear them come together, with Shit Robot remixing Prinzhorn Dance… More »


Hit-Boy – “Go All Night” (Feat. Travi$ Scott)

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 3:35 pm

Hit-Boy is a production mastermind capable of turning out linear stutter-stunners that always make the rapper ensconced in them sound incredible. Think of “Backseat Freestyle,” “Clique” or “Trophies” — the guy makes beats for rappers to boast over, as if they draw their power from the sound itself. I only recently shook off my post-OwlMore »


J Fernandez – “Between The Channels”

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 3:30 pm

Chicago bedroom-pop experimentalist J Fernandez is readying his debut album Many Levels Of Laughter, the follow-up to his excellent Memorize Now EP from 2014. We’ve already heard the MIDI-ridden soother “Read My Mind” and today Fernandez has shared a “Between The Channels,” a mumbly, jangling track that occasionally includes bits of a warm, stunning string… More »


Institute – “Cheerlessness”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 2:57 pm

The members of the band Institute come from the frothing, feral Austin, Texas punk scene; various people in the band also play in groups like Glue, Back To Black, and Wiccans. But on their own, Institute make a nervy, irradiated sort of garage-psych. There’s some 13th Floor Elevators in their sound, and some Cramps, too. More »


Christopher Owens – “Selfish Feelings”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 2:14 pm

Fun fact: When Christopher Owens releases another solo album, he’ll have put out more music under his own name than he did as the frontman of Girls. Owens released his sophomore solo album A New Testament last year, and today, he’s shared a new song from “a forthcoming album.” We don’t know anything about the… More »


O-Face – “740 Turbo”

By James Rettig / May 21, 2015 - 1:10 pm

You’ll always have a special attachment to the car you drove during high school. Mine was a hand-me-down baby blue Saturn. It was a lot better than the shitheaps that most of my friends were driving, but it was still ugly as all hell and never seemed to work right. And I miss the stupid… More »


Nick Diamonds – “Bohemian Groove”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 12:18 pm

The Unicorns/Islands frontman and Serial music composer Nick Thorburn always has a few things in the works. And right now, he’s getting ready to release City Of Quartz, a new solo album under his Nick Diamonds alias. We’ve posted “The Sting” and “Witch Window,” and now he’s shared a new one, “Bohemian Groove.” It’s the… More »


Death Cab For Cutie – “Black Sun (Dan Deacon Remix)”

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 11:41 am

If there was ever anyone that needed his wonderfully woeful voice and neat-box pop-rock fucked up by Dan Deacon’s mischievous touch, it’s Ben Gibbard. Death Cab For Cutie returned this year sans founding member Chris Walla with Kintsugi, their first album since 2011’s Codes And Keys, and Deacon has put the album’s first single “BlackMore »


Speedy Ortiz – “Basketball (Demo)”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 10:30 am

Carpark Records is about to celebrate its 16th anniversary with the release of a basketball-themed 12″ picture disc compilation called Sweet Sixteen. The record includes new songs from people like Memory Tapes, Dog Bite, and Montag, as well as locked grooves from the likes of Dan Deacon, Toro Y Moi, and Speedy Ortiz frontwoman Sadie… More »


Seapony – “Saw The Light” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 10:21 am

If you’ve spent any time at all in Seattle, you know that water informs most of the landscape. It’s a city perched on the edge of the ocean, and that expansive, fluid sense of possibility emerges in plenty of the art that’s created within its borders. Jenny Weidl and Danny Rowland recorded and wrote together… More »


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 »


Destroyer – “Dream Lover”

By James Rettig / May 21, 2015 - 9:07 am

It’s been four years since the release of Destroyer’s magnificent Kaputt, which is quite possibly the best album of his long career. Since the release of 2013’s Five Spanish Songs covers EP, Dan Bejar has kept relatively quiet, but he’s back today with a new single and the announcement of a new record. Poison SeasonMore »


Hudson Mohawke – “Indian Steps” (Feat. Antony) & “Scud Books” Video

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 8:49 am

The UK producer Hudson Mohawke is a few weeks away from releasing Lantern, his first new solo album in what feels like forever. We’ve already heard the early tracks “Ryderz” and “Very First Step,” with Irfane. And given that HudMo has lately put in work with people like Kanye West and Pusha T, it’s not… More »


Kendrick Lamar & Lady Gaga – “PARTYNAUSEOUS”

By James Rettig / May 20, 2015 - 11:05 pm

Back in 2012, Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar hyped up a single called “PARTYNAUSEOUS,” which was originally supposed to be included on good kid, m.A.A.d. city, but was scrapped at the last minute. Gaga cited creative differences with Lamar’s camp, but stressed that it was in no way his fault. A few years later during… More »


Drake – “Can I” (Feat. Beyoncé)

By James Rettig / May 20, 2015 - 10:47 pm

A few days ago, a super short snippet of a new Drake song called “Can I” surfaced, and various versions of it have been swirling around the web since then. The most definitive version so far leaked a few hours ago, it seems, and it features a full Drake verse, plus a short vocal from… More »
