Gacha – “Let Me Love You” & “Waterfalls” (Feat. TBA)

By Caitlin White / April 24, 2015 - 4:38 pm
Berlin producer Gacha's pearly, electronic comedowns are soothing above all. In advance of releasing his debut full-length Send Two Sunsets, we premiered the title track, and now he's shared two others. "Let Me Love You" is not a Ne-Yo cover, but a lingering command that's far more meditative than demanding. On "Waterfalls," he's once againMore »

John Metcalfe – “Just Let Go” (Feat. Natasha Khan)

By Chris DeVille / April 24, 2015 - 4:08 pm
Violinist John Metcalfe is an expert at bridging the classical and pop worlds, and his latest single does just that. "Just Let Go," from Metcalfe's upcoming The Appearance Of Colour casts Bat For Lashes singer Natasha Khan's AutoTuned vocals against a mystically creeping orchestral slow build and, eventually, a deconstructed trip-hop thump. It's a marvelou… More »

Giorgio Moroder – “Tom’s Diner” (Feat. Britney Spears) (Suzanne Vega Cover)

By Caitlin White / April 24, 2015 - 2:08 pm
Giorgio Moroder's new album Déjà Vu is his first in 30 years, and it also features a ton of wacky and unexpected high-profile pop star collaborations. The wackiest and most genius might be Britney Spears covering Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner," which has made it online a little earlier than expected. Listen to Moroder and Britney'… More »

Towkio – “Reflection” (Prod. Kaytranada)

By Caitlin White / April 24, 2015 - 12:24 pm
I was gaga for Towkio's gooey, ebullient "Heaven Only Knows." We even chose it as one of the best songs that week, and given Chance's assertion that .Wav Theory was one of the year's best releases, anticipation began to build. "Reflection" is a total 180 from Towkio's jazz-addled joy. It's a warbly, EDM downer about… More »

Heather Woods Broderick – “A Call For Distance”

By Caitlin White / April 24, 2015 - 12:16 pm
Yes, Heather Woods Broderick is Peter Broderick's sister. And yes, she works closely with Sharon Van Etten, and has been a part of Horse Feathers, Efterklang, and plenty of other collaborations. This summer, however, belongs solely to Heather. She's releasing her first solo album, Glider, through Western Vinyl, and "A Call For Distance" is the… More »

Mini Dresses – “Are You Real” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / April 24, 2015 - 11:13 am
Like so many great bands, Mini Dresses started out as a home recording project. Since then, singer/bassist Lira Mondal and guitarist Caufield Schnug have made an Austin-to-Boston move, acquired a Tascam 488 home recording console, and teamed up with drummer Luke Brandfon. "Are You Real," from the band's upcoming cassette EP FOUR, exudes a groovy… More »

Sia – “Big Girls Don’t Cry (Bleachers Remix)”

By Tom Breihan / April 24, 2015 - 11:01 am
Sia Furler and Jack Antonoff are two music-business insiders now finding ways to weird up the mainstream on their own. Furler wrote hits for people like Rihanna before finding her own transgressive performance-art style of pop stardom. Antonoff, meanwhile, is a member of Fun. and a Taylor Swift collaborator, and he records excellently playful and… More »

King Cyst – “Chinese Wind”

By Caitlin White / April 24, 2015 - 10:31 am
Remember in Anchorman when Will Ferrell starts talking about playing the "yazz flute"? Your reaction to that scene will probably determine how you'll feel about King Cyst. The Brooklyn group started out as a mostly instrumental Doors tribute band, and their first album was called Real Pussy, so none of their sardonic posturing on "Chinese… More »

Stream Sheer Mag II EP

By Tom Breihan / April 24, 2015 - 10:27 am
The Philadelphia band Sheer Mag walk an interesting line. They play bluesy, choogling, Camaro-revving classic rock -- straight-up Dazed & Confused-soundtrack cruise music. But they're a DIY punk band, so they play it scrappily and noisily, with the lowest fidelity you can imagine. That's a tough combination to pull off, but Sheer Mag do it,… More »

God Damn – “Vultures” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Patrick Hosken / April 24, 2015 - 10:04 am
God Damn are Thom Edward and Ash Weaver, two blasphemous Brits whose brain-bashing brand of sludge-rock barrels into focus on "Vultures," the menacing title track from the band's upcoming debut. As an introduction to this UK-based power duo, "Vultures" works overtime, chopping itself open in medias res as Edward's guitar work hops from assaulting to… More »

Wren Kitz – “Hall Of Lame” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Collin Robinson / April 24, 2015 - 10:00 am
Wren Kitz is a guitarist from Burlington, VT psych-rock quartet Paper Castles. The band is known for their psychedelic roots with pop leanings. Kitz doesn't stray far from their mainstay sound, but he strips it bare, delicately lacing samples from his found-sound cassette collection and fragile vocals. Kitz' newest solo full-length, For Evelyn, is due… More »

Total Babes – “Blurred Time”

By Tom Breihan / April 24, 2015 - 9:53 am
The Ohio band Total Babes features the two members of Cloud Nothings who are not frontman Dylan Baldi, and their new album Heydays is coming out next month. We've posted "Circling" (which does feature Baldi) and the title track. The band has now shared "Blurred Time," a hurtling blur of scraped-up guitar sounds and surprisingly… More »

HEALTH – “New Coke” Video + Death Magic Details

By Tom Breihan / April 24, 2015 - 8:42 am
It's been six years since astral L.A. punks HEALTH released Get Color, their second album, and after teasing a big return this year, they've finally announced the follow-up. Death Magic, the third HEALTH album, is finally coming out this summer. In making it, the band worked with people like the Haxan Cloak and Kanye West… More »

Fool’s Gold – “Another Sun”

By Caitlin White / April 23, 2015 - 4:33 pm
In September of last year L.A. world-pop outfit Fool's Gold released "I'm In Love," the first single off their third album Flying Lessons. Now, just about eight months later we'll finally be getting that album, and in the meantime they've put out another song, "Another Sun." The collective draws on amorphous sounds and is heavily… More »

The Chemical Brothers – “Sometimes I Feel So Deserted”

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 23, 2015 - 3:05 pm
The last we heard from the Chemical Brothers was back in October, when the legendary electronica duo presented us with "This Is Not A Game." The song was written for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. I soundtrack, and features vocals from Lorde, who curated the compilation, as well as Miguel. The last original studio album… More »

FIDLAR – “40 Oz. On Repeat”

By Tom Breihan / April 23, 2015 - 2:49 pm
It's been a little while since we've heard from L.A. punk rockers FIDLAR, who released their fun-as-hell self-titled album back in 2013. (Their "Cheap Beer" still rules hard.) But the band has just roared in out of nowhere with a brand new song called "40 Oz. On Repeat." It's a fantastically bratty anthem about using… More »

Lee Bannon – “Artificial Stasis”

By Tom Breihan / April 23, 2015 - 12:55 pm
The producer Lee Bannon has followed a less-traveled career path. He started out making beats for wordy rappers like Joey Bada$$ and Mick Jenkins and went onto make moody late-'90s-style drum-and-bass, linking up with the drummer from Anthrax somewhere along the way. Bannon has a new album called Pattern Of Excel on the way, and… More »

Allison Crutchfield – “Special To Me” (Phantom Of The Paradise Cover)

By Tom Breihan / April 23, 2015 - 12:32 pm
Record Store Day may have rejected Faux Real II, a new compilation from Father/Daughter Records, but that doesn't mean you should. The comp features DIY-scene heavy hitters like Chumped, Krill, and LVL UP covering songs that fictional artists sang in movies. Lately, Swearin' frontwoman Allison Crutchfield has been backing up her twin sister Katie i… More »

Sea Lion – “Room”

By Caitlin White / April 23, 2015 - 12:30 pm
Linn Osterberg of Gothenburg, Sweden makes gorgeous, tentative folk music as Sea Lion. "Room" is the first song I've heard from her, and I'm already working backward, eager to hear what else she's been quietly releasing. In fact, last year Osterberg put out two EPs -- Cobra Eyes in June and Big Moon EP (EarlyMore »

Sweet Spirit & Britt Daniel – “Have Mercy” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Patrick Hosken / April 23, 2015 - 12:29 pm
Austin's Sweet Spirit oscillate between garage melodicism and dizzy fury, and people have taken notice -- including Spoon's Britt Daniel. In the past, Daniel has recruited the band to back him at solo gigs, and now, in preparation of some upcoming joint Spoon/Sweet Spirit tour dates, he's joined members Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen o… More »
