Stranger Cat – “Unzip Your Skin”

By James Rettig / March 27, 2015
Stranger Cat -- the team-up between Cat Martino and multi-instrumentalist Sven Britt -- have shared another new track from their forthcoming debut album, In The Wilderness. Like lead single "Sirens" before it, "Unzip Your Skin" is a sparkling bit of synth-pop. With some very Björk-esque vocal takes, Martino makes the track feel taut, while Britt'… More »


Glass Candy – “Shell Game”

By Caitlin White / March 27, 2015
Glass Candy is one of the many musical groups that Johnny Jewel has a hand in. His latest project is the soundtrack to a new Ryan Gosling-directed film called Lost River, and so far he's shared "love theme" "Yes" by the Chromatics and his ambient Johnny Jewel solo track "Bullytown." Today we get… More »


SBTRKT – “FLAREtWO”

By Caitlin White / March 27, 2015
SBTRKT didn't wait long to drop new music after last fall's Wonder Where We Land. Only a few months after the release he premiered six new songs on a takeover of Benji B's BBC Radio 1 show. And while Wonder pursued a smoother, playful bent among its murky electronics, today's new "FLAREtWO" i… More »


TCTS – “For Life”

By Caitlin White / March 27, 2015
TCTS aka house producer Sam O'Neill has been readying his Body EP for a few months now, and it finally comes out next week. O'Neill was born in Manchester but now works out of London, and has come up under the tutelage of MTA label bosses Chase & Status. Prior to the EP release O'Neill… More »


Red Death – “Permanent Exile”

By Tom Breihan / March 27, 2015
The D.C. band Red Death, which includes members of groups like Coke Bust and Secretarian Violence, play '80s-style crossover thrash with brutal, bone-crunch hardcore simplicity. They'll release their debut album Permanent Exile next month, and the title track is a blast of ridiculously fun and angry mosh music that says everything it needs to say… More »


Son Lux – “Change Is Everything”

By Caitlin White / March 27, 2015
Son Lux have announced the follow up to 2013's Lanterns and shared the first single, the aching, dramatic "Change Is Everything." Though Son Lux is masterminded by Ryan Lott, they are now a trio: drummer Ian Chang and guitarist Rafiq Bhatia are part of the group's current iteration. Their new album Bones will be out… More »


Roots Manuva – “Facety 2:11″ (Prod. Four Tet)

By Tom Breihan / March 27, 2015
Back in the days before grime, Roots Manuva seemed like the great hope for UK rap. His heavy, craggy voice could've only come from a man who has seen some things, and his 2001 album Run Come Save Me seemed like a logical rap response to Massive Attack's Mezzanine. He's just returned with a new… More »


Download Last Night’s Björk Concert At NYC’s City Center

By Peter Helman / March 26, 2015
Last night, Björk played a show at New York's City Center theater supported by producer Arca, percussionist Manu Delago, and a fifteen-piece orchestra called Alarm Will Sound. For her first set, she played Vulnicura's first six tracks in order starting with the gorgeous "Stonemilker," while her second set contained a mix of older material… More »


Bleachers – “Dear Prudence” (The Beatles Cover)

By James Rettig / March 26, 2015
Bleachers' Jack Antonoff must have been feeling especially inspired by The White Album (could you blame him?) because he recorded and shared a rough-and-tumble cover of the Beatles' "Dear Prudence" from his hotel room in North Carolina. Antonoff breaks the song down into its most essential parts, adds some Autotune in place of the vocal… More »


Prurient – “Dragonflies To Sew You Up”

By Patrick Hosken / March 26, 2015
Earlier this year, Prurient -- the noise project of Dominick Fernow -- announced a new double album called Frozen Niagara Falls, to be released on Canadian metal label Profound Lore. Now, we have our first taste of the record: "Dragonflies To Sew You Up," a growling, relentless, five-minute industrial assault. The song ha… More »


Free Cake For Every Creature – “The Day To Day”

By James Rettig / March 26, 2015
Most of the friends we make in life are meant to be there for a finite amount of time. Fate or whatever nudges two people together and lets you go through certain experiences together. They help you grow, you help them as well, and then we drift onto the next experience and the next friend. More »


Weed – “Yr Songs”

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 26, 2015
When I interviewed the hardcore band NEEDS on Monday, we attempted to unpack what their Vancouver rock music scene might look like to outsiders. What we eventually agreed on is: Most people in the U.S. barely know any bands who owe their reputation to Vancouver, aside from White Lung, and they're based in L.A. More »


WATERS – “What’s Real”

By Caitlin White / March 26, 2015
Power-pop four-piece WATERS are prepping their debut album What's Real, and today they shared the title track. Van Pierszalowski laments "I've been stuck with the same kind of people/ Just blind and drunk, we can never see what's real," but he sings it over a swooning, female harmony and enough gigantic, pulsing guitar joy to… More »


Elliot Moss – “Best Light”

By Caitlin White / March 26, 2015
My friend's SoundCloud was idly playing in the background a few weeks ago when Elliot Moss' "Slip" came on. She's a former music blogger with impeccable taste, so I always love it when she plays me music, but this was different. The song stood out immediately. Moss' falsetto vocals evoke Justin Vernon with uncanny… More »


Girls Names – “Zero Triptych”

By Collin Robinson / March 26, 2015
Irish post-punk quartet Girls Names have been in "a zone of silence and of pure possibilities for a new beginning" for about a year and half, but it seems they've been anything but idle. After switching from the looser surf vibes of 2011's Dead To Me to the melancholy '80s New Wave of 2013's TheMore »


Pfarmers – “The Ol’ River Gang”

By Collin Robinson / March 26, 2015
Pfarmers are an amalgamation of a few bands and sounds. Danny Seim (Menomena, Lackthereof), Bryan Devendorf (the National), and horn player Dave Nelson (David Byrne & St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens) convene to conjure a style that is all together distinctive. Along with announcing their new album, Gunnera, due later this spring, the trio shares a… More »


Rihanna – “Bitch Better Have My Money”

By James Rettig / March 26, 2015
Rihanna's followed up "FourFiveSeconds" with the second single from her upcoming eighth studio album. It's called "Bitch Better Have My Money," a reference to the 1991 AMG album (and song) of the same name. On first listen, it sounds like a pretty decent bop from an artist that's brought us 11 #1 hit… More »


Q&A: Royal Thunder’s Mlny Parsonz On The Crushing New Crooked Doors + Hear “One Day” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Joseph Schafer / March 26, 2015
"I will come back here one day, my love," sings Mlny Parsonz, bassist and vocalist of Atlanta's Royal Thunder, on the band's new "One Day." I'm not sure I believe her. This is the kind of ballad that is trying to break your heart -- along with the rest of you -- and Royal Thunder… More »


Captured Tracks Is Releasing An Album From Ben Stiller’s Forgotten ’80s Punk Band

By Tom Breihan / March 26, 2015
When Ben Stiller was a teenager, he played drums in a quirked-out punk band called Capital Punishment. The trio released one album, 1982's Roadkill, a piece of music that freely employs both fake British accents and Captain Beefheart scraggle-growls. The album's songs found their way to YouTube, and last year, word got around that Stiller… More »


Communions – “Out Of My World”

By Tom Breihan / March 26, 2015
Late last year, the young Copenhagen band Communions impressed the hell out of us with their "So Long Sun" b/w "Love Stands Still" 7". Later this year, they'll follow up that single with a new self-titled EP, and they've just shared one of its tracks. "Out Of My World" has some of the… More »
