By James Rettig / 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.

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.

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 »

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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

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 »

Those Pretty Wrongs – “Lucky Guy”

By Tom Breihan / May 22, 2015 - 12:45 pm

Jody Stephens, the former drummer of Big Star, is the only founding member of that band who’s still alive.

CL – “Doctor Pepper” (Feat. Riff Raff & OG Maco) (Prod. Diplo)

By James Rettig / May 22, 2015 - 11:50 am

K-pop has always lingered outside the periphery of mainstream American pop, a purely international affliction that never made its way over the Pacific outside of niche circles. PSY, its biggest crossover of the past decade, was a mostly a novelty gimmick, discarded after a few months for the next musical meme. The world of girl-grou… More »

Sam Bruno – “Search Party”

By Caitlin White / May 22, 2015 - 11:11 am

This summer’s teen-dream mystery love flick is called Paper Towns, and it stars the inimitable model and celebrity BFF Cara Delevingne. Remember how The Fault In Our Stars took over last year’s summer? Well John Green has done it again — Paper Towns is another adaptation of one of his books. Honestly, it looks pretty… More »

SOAK – “Immigrant Song” (Led Zeppelin Cover)

By Caitlin White / May 22, 2015 - 10:16 am

Last time SOAK did did a cover, she was singing us to sleep in Annie Clark’s dystopian future with a version of “Digital Witness.” Now, 18-year-old Bridie Monds-Watson has tackled Led Zeppelin’s iconic “Immigrant Song.” A stippled synthetic bassline underlies her brooding, restrained take, and she never strays into the kerosene explosion that made Robert… More »

Spirit Club – “Fast Ice” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / May 22, 2015 - 10:08 am

Nathan Williams’ Spirit Club just released their self-titled debut album last week, yet they’re already on to releasing material from LP2. “Fast Ice” is our first taste of the band’s next batch of songs, and it continues applying off-kilter psych idiosyncrasies to the beachy alt-rock Williams made his name on. “I’m so alone, but you’ll… More »

Robert Smith – “There’s A Girl In The Corner” (The Twilight Sad Cover)

By Tom Breihan / May 22, 2015 - 9:50 am

If you’re listening for it, it’s easy to hear the influence of the Cure in everything that gloomy Scottish postpunkers the Twilight Sad have ever done. And it turns out that the admiration is mutual. The Twilight Sad are about to release “It Never Was The Same,” a track from their 2014 album Nobody WantsMore »

Ariel Pink – “I Need A Minute”

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 5:53 pm

L.A.-based destroyed pop experimentalist Ariel Pink contributed a new song to the movie Heaven Knows What.

Prinzhorn Dance School – “Reign (Shit Robot Remix)”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 5:04 pm

Prinzhorn Dance School, the terse UK postpunk duo, and Shit Robot, the playful New York house producer, are both longtime fixtures of the DFA label. But the two acts have basically nothing in common musically besides a love of elemental rhythm. So it’s cool to hear them come together, with Shit Robot remixing Prinzhorn Dance… More »

Hit-Boy – “Go All Night” (Feat. Travi$ Scott)

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 3:35 pm

Hit-Boy is a production mastermind capable of turning out linear stutter-stunners that always make the rapper ensconced in them sound incredible. Think of “Backseat Freestyle,” “Clique” or “Trophies” — the guy makes beats for rappers to boast over, as if they draw their power from the sound itself. I only recently shook off my post-OwlMore »
