Chief Keef – “Ain’t Missing You” (Feat Jenn Em) Video

By Caitlin White / July 6, 2015 - 5:25 pm

This weekend, Chicago’s foremost rap site Fake Shore Drive posted a marvelous thing: Chief Keef interpolating John Waite’s classic ’80s country-slash-pop gem “Ain’t Missing You.” My personal favorite version — before this one — is the Alison Krauss duet with Waite that appeared on A Hundred Miles Or More: A Collection. That means there’s only… More »

Brooklyn newbies EZTV (not to be confused with the torrenting service of the same name) recorded their debut full-length album, Calling Out, with Jarvis Taveniere of Woods. The whole “gently jangly” thing (in the words of our own Chris DeVille) is now streaming in full up until its release on Friday. You could compare part… More »

Your Old Droog – “We Don’t Know You”

By Caitlin White / July 6, 2015 - 2:42 pm

Your Old Droog is releasing new music, even though it’s become clear that he is not, in fact, Nas. His latest track is called “We Don’t Know You” and will be on a forthcoming Nicest EP that’s out 7/17. It flips a smooth, jazzy piano sample and some ’90s rhythms around the fairly obvious hook… More »


Worriers – “Yes All Cops” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / July 6, 2015 - 12:06 pm

“Yes All Cops” is a protest song designed to combat complacency. Worriers use the rhetoric of apologists (“Not all cops are bad”) and flip it, suggesting that anyone in a position of power deserves to be carefully scrutinized, that remaining silent in the face of oppression is often more damaging than taking a risk and… More »

Emerging from the dark cloud surrounding convicted child sex offender Ian Watkins and their former Welsh metal band Lostprophets, No Devotion are well on their way to, well, permanence. Former Thursday and current United Nations member Geoff Rickly took over as frontman for the newly christened band, and last year they realized the terrific debut… More »


Goat – “It’s Time For Fun”

By James Rettig / July 6, 2015 - 10:34 am

Swedish experimentalists Goat are following up their breakthrough 2014 album Commune with a one-off single called “It’s Time For Fun.” The track was apparently recorded in their claimed mythological voodoo-steeped hometown of Korpilombolo, an origin story that’s been disputed but feels just about right for this mysterious collective. The single will be released by three… More »

Heather Woods Broderick has been quietly stringing together a slew of tracks off her new album Glider. Today she’s shared “Up In The Pine,” which follows up “A Call For Distance,” “Wyoming,” and “Mama Shelter.” I used to be an avid tree-climber when I was younger, and the longing in this song reminds me of… More »

Jay Rock – “Gumbo”

By Peter Helman / July 4, 2015 - 1:46 pm

Jay Rock sometimes gets overshadowed by his more famous Black Hippy peers Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, and Ab-Soul, but it looks like he might get his turn in the spotlight again soon. There’s still no official word on when his next album might be coming, but he’s been dropping a whole bunch of very good… More »

Fran Lobo – “Back Again” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Misha Sesar / July 3, 2015 - 11:12 am

London-based Fran Lobo has a beautiful, intoxicating soul-filled voice. It has an intriguing smoothness that feels dark and confident. She’s someone you don’t want to mess with. “Back Again” features sounds from a vintage keytar paired with simple beats and haunting vocals. It’s a breakup song that shows, even after all the tears, Lobo ca… More »

Eminem collaborated with Gwen Stefani in his new song “Kings Never Die.” It abruptly cuts between Eminem’s intense rapping to Stefani’s calm interludes of royalty’s everlasting fame. His aggressive rapping focuses on the constant fluctuation of fame and what is needed to stay at the top. The song is part of the soundtrack for the… More »
