Baio – “Brainwash yyrr Face”

By Chris DeVille / 11:24 am

As revealed on a recent No Effects podcast, Vampire Weekend aren’t that close to releasing a new album, but bassist Chris Baio’s flourishing side gig as an electronic producer will yield an LP soon enough. About a month ago Baio announced a record deal with indie titan Glassnote, and today he’s shared that project’s lead… More »


Neon Indian – “Annie”

By Tom Breihan / 11:09 am

Era Extraña, the last album from Neon Indian, came out way the hell back in 2011, and the only thing we’ve heard from Alan Palomo lately was the TED talk he gave on Martha’s Vineyard last year. But all of a sudden, Neon Indian is back with a brand-new single, and it’s a good one. More »


No Joy – “Hollywood Teeth”

By Tom Breihan / 10:49 am

Montreal shoegazers No Joy are a few weeks away from releasing More Faithful, their grand and urgent new album. The two songs we’ve already posted, “Everything New” and “Moon In My Mouth,” are both winners. And now they’ve shared a dizzy rush of beauty called “Hollywood Teeth,” a blur of guitar effects that whirls u… More »


Ty Dolla $ign – “L.A.” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

By Tom Breihan / 10:11 am

The sonically playful and perpetually horny Californian R&B singer Ty Dolla $ign has left a seismic imprint on his genre, and he’s done it without, as yet, releasing a proper studio album. That’s scheduled to change this September, as the official debut Free TC looms. And from the looks of things, the LP will feature… More »


Refused – “Françafrique”

Reunited Swedish hardcore titans Refused are about to release Freedom, their fourth album and their first since 1998’s landmark The Shape Of Punk To Come. This is the sort of news that gets punk rock fans hyperventilating and feeling faint. And while first single “Elektra” found the band in diamond-hard, seesawing, anthemic form, “Françafrique,” their… More »


A$AP Rocky’s At.Long.Last.A$AP Is Out Now, A Week Early

This weekend A$AP Rocky’s At.Long.Last.A$AP became the latest high-profile album to leak early, and now Rocky has released the project a week ahead of schedule to combat the leak. The Long.Live.A$AP follow-up was tipped for release at midnight tonight, but it ended up going on sale a few minutes beforehand. You’ve heard “Lord Pretty FlackoMore »


MXMS – “Rx” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / May 25, 2015 - 10:44 am

L.A. dark-pop duo MXMS — “me and my shadow” — are the latest signees to Grand Jury, the label that brought us Twin Peaks, Elliot Moss, and Avid Dancer. Singer Ariel Levitan and pianist Jeremy Dawson will release their power ballad “OMG” on 7″ soon, but as so often happens, B-side “Rx” might be the… More »


Dr. Dre – “2Nite” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar & Jeremih)

By James Rettig / May 24, 2015 - 1:11 pm

Rumor has it that someone out there is sitting on a veritable treasure trove on unreleased rap tracks, just waiting for the right time to leak them. Allegedly, that’s been the source of the recent Drake leaks, and the Kendrick Lamar/Lady Gaga one as well. And there’s apparently even more where that came from. The… More »


Arca – “Washed Clean”

By James Rettig / May 24, 2015 - 11:45 am

Arca shared a new track called “Washed Clean” earlier today on Twitter, responding “you’re welcome” to a fan that remarked that “the beat didn’t drop.” It sure doesn’t — the new track has the same kind of surprising, elegant structure that marked his debut full-length, Xen. A quiet start builds to gentle chimes, which transitio… More »


Chance The Rapper – “Hiatus”

By James Rettig / May 24, 2015 - 11:34 am

Chance The Rapper promised that Surf would be coming next week a few weeks ago, so who knows what’s going on with that, but he did share a track yesterday to tide us over for a little bit longer. It’s a short one called “Hiatus,” named after the sample that he raps over, which i… More »


Coldplay – “Gone But Not F. Cotton”

By James Rettig / May 23, 2015 - 10:57 am

Coldplay wrote an original song dedicated to BBC Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton, who is leaving after over a decade on the channel. It was played yesterday during her last show. It has the stupidly clever title of “Gone But Not F. Cotton,” and is a goofy piano ballad featuring Chris Martin wistfully reminiscing o… More »


A$AP Rocky – “Electric Body” (Feat. Schoolboy Q)

By James Rettig / May 22, 2015 - 6:27 pm

With A$AP Rocky’s At.Long.Last.A$AP just around the corner, tracks are starting trickle out. We’ve already heard the officially released “L$D,” “Everyday,” and “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2,” and now the Schoolboy Q-featuring track “Electric Body” has made its way online. As with most leaks, you’ll have to put up with stupid tags popping up i… More »


Drake – “On A Wave” (Feat. Tinashe) + “Go Out Tonight”

By James Rettig / May 22, 2015 - 6:14 pm

Looks like Drake has another leak problem. (Last year, if you’ll recall, he was forced to release three tracks after hackers got a hold of them.) Earlier this week, an unfinished version of Beyoncé collab “Can I” made its way its way online, and now two other tracks have surfaced. Both of them seem to… More »


Dan Snaith Shares New Untitled Daphni Track

By Caitlin White / May 22, 2015 - 5:02 pm

Caribou’s Dan Snaith appeared on Jon Hopkins’ latest BBC Radio 1 Residency show and shared a new track under his Daphni alias. Snaith said the track is something he threw together to play in DJ sets and that it doesn’t have a title or raison d’existence. He continues: “It’s sloppily put together, poorly mixed, ineffective… More »


GENER8ION – “The New International Sound (Part. II)” (Feat. M.I.A.)

By Chris DeVille / May 22, 2015 - 4:56 pm

May has been a big month for M.I.A. She shared a new demo and teased a potentially controversial video, and when A$AP Rocky’s At.Long.Last.A$AP credits broke, her name was included alongside many of her fellow superstars. Now Ms. Arulpragasam has guested on a new track by the French producer Surkin’s music/art/fashion collective GENER8ION. Hear her… More »


Neil Young – “Rock Starbucks”

By Chris DeVille / May 22, 2015 - 3:46 pm

Neil Young has been highly critical of Starbucks due to the coffee chain’s alleged involvement with Monsanto and use of GMOs, although Starbucks says they aren’t involved in the Monsanto lawsuit that got Young all riled up last winter. That hasn’t stopped Young from campaigning against the world’s most dominant coffee company. He’s even writte… More »


Boosie BadAzz – “Mercy On My Soul” (Feat. Jeezy)

By Tom Breihan / May 22, 2015 - 3:06 pm

Next week, the combustible Baton Rouge rapper Boosie BadAzz releases his absolutely furious new album Touch Down 2 Cause Hell, his first in years because of a prison term that interrupted his career for a long time. We’ve posted tracks like “Like A Man” and “Hands Up,” but “Mercy On My Soul” may be the… More »


Preview Gaspar Claus’ One Night Stand, A New LP Feat. Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner, Porcelain Raft

By Caitlin White / May 22, 2015 - 1:14 pm

In 2012, French cellist Gaspar Claus gathered a group of musicians in Brooklyn to create something in a single night. The session featured some key members of the current musical scene: Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner of the National, Mauro Remiddi of Porcelain Raft, Jessie Stein of the Luyas, David Moore of Bing And Ruth, Rémi… More »


Worriers – “They / Them / Theirs”

By James Rettig / May 22, 2015 - 1:04 pm

Gender is stupid. We need to throw the whole construct in the trash. Of course, that’s not going to happen for a very, very long time (if ever) so, until then, we’ll get songs rebelling against the shackles of a societally-imposed identity. Worriers got their start a few years ago with the same kind of… More »


Hear Another Preview Of Eminem’s “Phenomenal” In Draymond Green Beats Commercial

By Caitlin White / May 22, 2015 - 12:46 pm

Eminem seems to have settled comfortably into the habit of debuting new music via commercial. He used a Beats by Dre commercial to announce his return in 2013, and he recently debuted a new song in a trailer for the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring boxing movie Southpaw. Today, he’s returned to the Beats format, sharing a cli… More »
