Deer Tick – “Grandfather Song”

By Lisa Brown / 5:24 pm

It’s been almost two years since Deer Tick released their fifth LP Negativity, which featured the string of singles “The Rock,” “The Dream’s In The Ditch,” “The Curtain,” and “Just Friends.” But “Grandfather Song” was one track that didn’t make the album. Now it’s being released on Amazon Acoustics, an Amazon playlist that features a… More »


Places To Hide – “B. Murphy” / “Punk Vacation”

By James Rettig / 4:27 pm

Some great young bands just aren’t destined to be long for this world. See Sports — who are releasing their second and final album in the fall — and file them next to Places To Hide, who announced that they were breaking up earlier this month. The Atlanta band has put out one full-length and… More »

By Lisa Brown / 3:45 pm

Obnox is the solo garage rock project of Cleveland’s Lamont “Bim” Thomas, the renowned post-punk drummer who made his mark playing in an array of bands including the Bassholes, This Moment In Black History, Puffy Areolas, and the Unholy Two. Thomas’ active band life is matched with his vast amount of solo releases. This year… More »


Angel Haze – “Impossible”

By Caitlin White / 3:43 pm

Earlier this year Angel Haze released a pair of devastating, emotional tracks: the gorgeous, white-hot romance of “Candlxs” and its fiery breakup companion “Gxmes.” Haze said that these two loosies would be on an upcoming EP called In The Winter Of Wet Years, and perhaps her next new song “Impossible” is an indication that we’ll… More »

When I was sixteen, I started to bring a purse along with me to school. Well, OK, it wasn’t a purse so much as it was a repurposed tote bag, because I was neither cool or fashionable at the time, but what it represented to me was my first break with prescribed gender norms. It… More »


Nate Heller – “Dreamsong” (Feat. Amber Coffman)

By Tom Breihan / 1:56 pm

The forthcoming movie The Diary Of A Teenage Girl is a coming-of-age period piece set in 1976, and it tells the story of a high school girl who falls in lust with her mother’s boyfriend. Nate Heller, brother of director Marielle Heller, contributed a couple of songs to the soundtrack, and one of those i… More »


Dogs On Acid – “Make It Easy”

There isn’t a shred of pretension to be found on the first two singles we’ve heard from Dogs On Acid’s forthcoming EP, and that’s an impressive feat for a band who manages to contain big, overwhelming emotions in small cages. “Make It Easy” starts with a series of sing-song cliches, little rhymes that stack u… More »


The Mountain Goats – “Used To Haunt”

By Tom Breihan / 1:25 pm

Our apologies for not being more up on the teenage-movie soundtrack-album world, but the soundtrack for the new drama Paper Towns has been out for a few weeks, and it looks pretty great. The album includes some great previously-released songs from people like the War on Drugs, Vampire Weekend, HAIM, Twin Shadow, and Santigold. It… More »


D∆WN – “Roses”

By Misha Sesar / 1:25 pm

D∆WN is New Orleans’ Dawn Richard — a former member of of Bad Boy reality-TV girl group Danity Kane and of Diddy’s shockingly great new-wavey group Diddy-Dirty Money and a current PETA spokeswoman — has released a slow, sensual R&B song entitled “Roses.” While developing the track, she used Periscope, an online streaming app, to… More »


Zombi – “Pillars Of The Dawn”

By Lisa Brown / 1:22 pm

Zombi is the instrumental Pittsburgh duo of producer Steve Moore and drummer A.E. Paterra, delivering dark progressive tunes that embody horror movie scores. The band has been quiet since their 2011 release Escape Velocity. But they’re returning with a new LP this fall titled Shape Shift. It’s preceded by the track “Pillars Of The Dawn,”… More »


Puscifer – “Grand Canyon” Video

By Misha Sesar / 1:19 pm
1

Puscifer, the project of Tool/A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan, is releasing its first album in four years. “Grand Canyon,” the first release off of Money Shot, is a busy soundscape sculpted by Keenan featuring UK’s Carina Round. The track is filled with echoing voice distortion and an almost Middle Eastern influence. “It’s extremely… More »


Chet Faker – “1998” (Feat. BANKS)

By Peter Helman / 1:03 pm

Melbourne singer/producer Chet Faker and L.A. singer BANKS have a lot in common. They’re practically neighbors at the same intersection of woozy electronic music and atmospheric R&B, and both released a debut album last year. Now they’ve teamed up on a new version of “1998,” the warm, pulsating standout off of Faker’s Built On GlassMore »


You Blew It! – “Punker Than Thou”

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / 12:47 pm

Orlando’s You Blew It! have been on a roll ever since releasing their 2014 LP, Keep Doing What You’re Doing, and they haven’t shown signs of letting up since. The band signed to Jade Tree Records and dropped their Pioneer Of Nothing EP at the beginning of this year, and now, they’ve released a brand… More »


Kylesa – “Lost And Confused”

By Tom Breihan / 12:34 pm

The great Savannah, Georgia doom metal band Kylesa, quite possibly my favorite metal band working today, last left us with the 2013 album Ultraviolet. They’ve just announced plans to follow it up with a new LP called Exhausting Fire this fall, and first single “Lost And Confused” is a welcome indicator that this could be… More »


Sports – “The Washing Machine”

By James Rettig / 12:13 pm

Lead Sports vocalist Carmen Perry has a conversational style of singing that lends itself well to the kind of extended metaphor present on “The Washing Machine,” the closing track from the Ohio band’s upcoming sophomore album, All Of Something. Ostensibly, it’s about doing laundry, but it wastes no time unfolding into something more. “You’ve bee… More »


MUNA – “Promise”

By Caitlin White / 11:50 am

MUNA is a dark pop girl band from LA who have no qualms about being stubborn as hell. Lead vocalist Katie Gavin splits the difference between Katy Perry and Caroline Polachek, which yes, is just about the biggest compliment I am capable of giving. On “Promise,” her voice hits that warble-chirp that makes Polachek so… More »


Download Twin Shadow’s Demos Mixtape Night Rally

After being trapped in label hell for over a year, George Lewis Jr. made the move from 4AD to Warner Bros and released the third Twin Shadow album, Eclipse, which ended up being something of a letdown. (Outside of “To The Top,” of course, which is an instant-classic.) But that extra time in limbo meant… More »


Art Contest – “Wall Ball” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Grace Birnstengel / 10:59 am

“Wall Ball,” the new single from South Carolina’s Art Contest, is grounded on a complex, rhythmic, energetic guitar riff played at high speed. The song will appear on Two Songs, Art Contest’s follow-up to their debut album Math Major. Vocalist Coleman Monroe sings as fast as humanly possible throughout the first half of the “Wall… More »


SHARER (Young & Sick And JD Samson) – “Body Tonight” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Grace Birnstengel / 10:00 am

SHARER is the collaborative project of Band To Watch alumnus Young & Sick and radical punk veteran JD Samson. Young & Sick is the moniker of Dutch artist Nick van Hofwegen, who has his hands in so many different ventures, one being creating the single art you see above, that he just calls Young… More »


Wolf Prize – “Come Home” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Grace Birnstengel / 9:46 am

Tori Roggeman, Marisa DeMeglio, and Amber Elliot comprise the Los Angeles ambient synth group Wolf Prize. Their newest track “Come Home” washes over you like a song by the xx. Roggeman’s voice is as ethereal as Romy Madley Croft’s, and she perhaps even has a better range. You can also hear Wolf Prize’s stated influence… More »
