George Clanton (FKA Mirror Kisses) – “Wonder Gently”

By James Rettig / 4:58 pm

George Clanton has dropped his Mirror Kisses moniker — which is totally fine, because it was kind of a lame name — and decided to start releasing music under his own name. Clanton’s first track as his namesake is “Wonder Gently” and, while he doesn’t change up his sound drastically, it does feel a little… More »

Ought – “Men For Miles”

By James Rettig / 12:43 pm

Ought’s upcoming sophomore album kicks off with “Men For Miles,” which hits the ground running and leaves no time for fucking around.

By James Rettig / 11:46 am

A few months ago, All Dogs leader Maryn Jones put out a solo album under the name YowlerThe Offer was a ghostly collection of songs, which sounded like it was written by candlelight during one’s darkest moments. “Skin” is the track on Kicking Every Day that comes closest to approaching the same headspace,… More »

Q&A: Gardens & Villa On Their Black Mirror-Inspired Music For Dogs And Frogtown Warehouse Cult

By Ryan Leas / 10:02 am

Gardens & Villa’s new album, Music For Dogs, rarely sounds like it could’ve been made in California. It’s the kind of album that, though it has its lighter moments, mostly maintains the kind of glassy, claustrophobic atmosphere that evokes imagery of some kind of decrepit, not-too-distant-future cityscape. Turns out, that’s not too far off from… More »

By Caitlin White / 9:35 am

Tame Impala’s new album Currents arrived with a hailstorm of critical affection. At this point, it’s almost unanimously acclaimed as one of the best albums of the year, buoyed in part by the endless fretting of its elusive, perfectionist mastermind, Kevin Parker. More »

Drake – “Back To Back Freestyle”

By Chris DeVille / 8:39 am

Drake responded to Meek Mill’s ghostwriting allegations over the weekend with “Charged Up,” perhaps the floatiest diss track in rap history. Funkmaster Flex promised he’d have Meek Mill’s response track Monday night on Hot 97, but all that materialized that evening was 15 seconds of Meek cackling, which made Flex somewhat of a laughingstock and… More »

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.

Stream Adult Mom Momentary Lapse Of Happily

By James Rettig / July 28, 2015 - 2:23 pm

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 »
