Jonathan Snipes, Daveed Diggs, & Signor Benedick The Moor – “12:00am” Video

By Peter Helman / August 4, 2015 - 10:32 pm

L.A. trio clipping.’s sort-of-self-titled debut was one of my favorite albums of last year, an experimental noise-rap opus that didn’t really deconstruct hip-hop tropes so much as it embodied and celebrated them while gleefully fucking with form. Filmmaker Carlos Lopez Estrada has directed four music videos for the group, and each of them is a… More »

Petite Noir – “Best” Video

By Caitlin White / August 4, 2015 - 5:26 pm

Petite Noir is the project of Capetown producer Yannick Iluga, who kicked off the year by releasing his debut EP The King Of Anxiety. Though plenty of people will certainly relate to that title, his self-dubbed noirwave seeks a balance between anxiousness and gratitude. If anything reveals that, it’s the title for his just-announced full-length… More »

Jorge Elbrecht & Friends Are Scoring The Garbage Pail Kids Movie Scene By Scene

By James Rettig / August 4, 2015 - 3:24 pm

The Garbage Pail Kids Movie was made at the height of the creepy little knock-off caricatures’ popularity in the ’80s, and it’s widely considered to be one of the worst movies ever made. Even though its status is probably best left to that of a curiosity and also-ran, producer and prolific Jorge Elbrecht has started… More »

Boytoy – “Postal”

By Misha Sesar / August 4, 2015 - 2:27 pm

Brooklyn-based Boytoy remind me of Speedy Ortiz’s noise-pop aesthetic, but with a fast-paced ’90s pop-punk twist. Last year we premiered their sugary-sweet “Visits” video, a lawn-dancing romance. Now Noisey tells us the skate rock trio’s debut full-length Grackle will be released this fall. Lead single “Postal” just asks for jumping crowds — the drums are… More »

Spencer Radcliffe has been putting out music for a while — first as Blithe Field, then under his own name — and you can chart his progression since 2008 in a satisfying arc.

Tamaryn – “Last” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / August 4, 2015 - 11:37 am

Our own Tom Breihan once said Tamaryn makes “head-blown desert-vista dreampop” and that’s the only way I can imagine her now: standing majestic and windswept in the middle of a desert somewhere, orchestrating synths and strings with graceful, wild gestures. On her new album Cranekiss, Tamaryn spreads her spacious dreampop wider than ever but know… More »

Ashley Monroe’s excellent new album The Blade — which serves as something close to her sophomore record — is out now.

Kevin Gates – “Tomorrow”

By Tom Breihan / August 3, 2015 - 1:58 pm

When he wants to be, Baton Rouge’s Kevin Gates is one of the best rappers in the world. And while Gates’ new single “Tomorrow” isn’t necessarily his best, we do hear flashes of that in there. It’s a hard-as-fuck street song that’s delivered entirely in a sweetly bluesy singsong, and that’s not exactly the sort… More »
