Download Condo Fucks’ (AKA Yo La Tengo’s) Covers Set For Cake Shop’s 10th Anniversary

By Tom Breihan / May 26, 2015 - 3:17 pm

Back in 2009, Yo La Tengo released Fuckbook, an album of scrappy, noisy lo-fi punk under their alter-ego Condo Fucks. And every once in a while, YLT will dust off that Condo Fucks name to play a set of covers. This past Friday, they played the Cake Shop, the tiny Lower East Side venue that… More »

Disclosure – “Holding On” (Feat. Gregory Porter)

By Chris DeVille / May 26, 2015 - 2:42 pm

Bang That,” released on the first day of this month, was the first proper new Disclosure song in two years. But it wasn’t the first official single from the follow-up to 2013’s smash debut album Settle. That’d be “Holding On,” the Gregory Porter collab that just debuted on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. O… More »

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 »

Oberhofer – “Memory Remains” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / May 26, 2015 - 1:15 pm

Brad Oberhofer recorded 106 demos and traveled to the four corners of the continental United States in pursuit of Chronovision, the sophomore LP he’ll release this summer on Glassnote. Oberhofer’s stops along the way ranged from NYC’s famed Electric Lady Studios to what remains of LA’s storied Sound City, from tracking in a humble Tacoma… More »

Girlpool’s Harmony Tividad & Cleo Tucker Share Solo Songs

By Caitlin White / May 26, 2015 - 1:08 pm

Girpool’s excellent, intimate debut album Before The World Was Big is out next week, but that looming release hasn’t stopped either Cleo Tucker or Harmony Tividad from putting out new music. The duo recently shared “Your Heart,” a collaborative track they recorded while driving through Idaho on tour, and this weekend they each put out… More »

Sorority Noise – “Nolsey” (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / May 26, 2015 - 12:59 pm

One of the overarching themes on Sorority Noise’s new album is addiction, and how our vices affect ourselves and everyone around us. “Nolsey” tackles this from a few different angles: there’s the battle between temptation and logic (“barely breathing enemies”), the feeling of self-loathing and worthlessness (“it’s always been my dream to be empty”), and,… More »

Richard Thompson – “All Buttoned Up”

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / May 26, 2015 - 12:46 pm

Richard Thompson writes songs about obsessive love and messy relationships like no other. “Vincent Black Lightning 1952,” “Cold Kisses,” “Beeswing,” and practically every song on 1994’s Mirror Blue exemplifies this. Thompson’s female characters always eschew a sense of nonchalant, unpracticed sexiness, radiating the kind of attraction that drives his narrators mad. Sometimes, these songs are… 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 »

Holly Waxwing – “Vibe” (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / May 26, 2015 - 11:53 am

“Vibe” has that inimitable quality that’s easy to try but hard to get right: It feels like it belongs in a nonexistent video game, meant to soundtrack adventurous jumps over a candy-coated sky. But between the plucky chirps, Holly Waxwing (real name Garrett Crosby) finds a decidedly human undercurrent, separate from the fantastical world he’… More »

The Weeknd – “I Can’t Feel My Face” + “In The Night” + “In The ’90s”

By Caitlin White / May 26, 2015 - 11:40 am

Drake affiliate and dark-R&B sensation the Weeknd is making new music, and he seems to be facing the same leak issues as the OVO leader. This time around, Abel Tesfaye has traded some of his terrifying sexuality for Max Martin helium-pop vibes because everyone can use a makeover from time to time. Since all of… More »

Juicy J – “Tryna Fuck” (Feat. Drake & Ty Dolla $ign)

By Tom Breihan / May 26, 2015 - 11:35 am

For a while last year, the legendary Memphis rap hardhead libertine Juicy J was cranking out great singles like “Low” (with Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby, and Young Thug) and “Ice” (with Future and A$AP Ferg), and he still couldn’t get a release date for his album Pure THC: The Hustle Continues. That’s more an indictment… More »

Baio – “Brainwash yyrr Face”

By Chris DeVille / May 26, 2015 - 11:24 am

As revealed on a recent No Effects podcast, Vampire Weekend aren’t that close to releasing a new album, but bassist Chris Baio’s flourishing side gig as an electronic producer will yield an LP soon enough. About a month ago Baio announced a record deal with indie titan Glassnote, and today he’s shared that project’s lead… More »

Neon Indian – “Annie”

By Tom Breihan / May 26, 2015 - 11:09 am

Era Extraña, the last album from Neon Indian, came out way the hell back in 2011, and the only thing we’ve heard from Alan Palomo lately was the TED talk he gave on Martha’s Vineyard last year. But all of a sudden, Neon Indian is back with a brand-new single, and it’s a good one. More »

No Joy – “Hollywood Teeth”

By Tom Breihan / May 26, 2015 - 10:49 am

Montreal shoegazers No Joy are a few weeks away from releasing More Faithful, their grand and urgent new album. The two songs we’ve already posted, “Everything New” and “Moon In My Mouth,” are both winners. And now they’ve shared a dizzy rush of beauty called “Hollywood Teeth,” a blur of guitar effects that whirls u… More »

Ty Dolla $ign – “L.A.” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

By Tom Breihan / May 26, 2015 - 10:11 am

The sonically playful and perpetually horny Californian R&B singer Ty Dolla $ign has left a seismic imprint on his genre, and he’s done it without, as yet, releasing a proper studio album. That’s scheduled to change this September, as the official debut Free TC looms. And from the looks of things, the LP will feature… More »

Refused – “Françafrique”

By Tom Breihan / May 26, 2015 - 8:39 am

Reunited Swedish hardcore titans Refused are about to release Freedom, their fourth album and their first since 1998’s landmark The Shape Of Punk To Come. This is the sort of news that gets punk rock fans hyperventilating and feeling faint. And while first single “Elektra” found the band in diamond-hard, seesawing, anthemic form, “Françafrique,” their… 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 »

MXMS – “Rx” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / May 25, 2015 - 10:44 am

L.A. dark-pop duo MXMS — “me and my shadow” — are the latest signees to Grand Jury, the label that brought us Twin Peaks, Elliot Moss, and Avid Dancer. Singer Ariel Levitan and pianist Jeremy Dawson will release their power ballad “OMG” on 7″ soon, but as so often happens, B-side “Rx” might be the… More »

Dr. Dre – “2Nite” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar & Jeremih)

By James Rettig / May 24, 2015 - 1:11 pm

Rumor has it that someone out there is sitting on a veritable treasure trove on unreleased rap tracks, just waiting for the right time to leak them. Allegedly, that’s been the source of the recent Drake leaks, and the Kendrick Lamar/Lady Gaga one as well. And there’s apparently even more where that came from. The… More »

Arca – “Washed Clean”

By James Rettig / May 24, 2015 - 11:45 am

Arca shared a new track called “Washed Clean” earlier today on Twitter, responding “you’re welcome” to a fan that remarked that “the beat didn’t drop.” It sure doesn’t — the new track has the same kind of surprising, elegant structure that marked his debut full-length, Xen. A quiet start builds to gentle chimes, which transitio… More »
