J Fernandez – “Between The Channels”

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 3:30 pm

Chicago bedroom-pop experimentalist J Fernandez is readying his debut album Many Levels Of Laughter, the follow-up to his excellent Memorize Now EP from 2014. We’ve already heard the MIDI-ridden soother “Read My Mind” and today Fernandez has shared a “Between The Channels,” a mumbly, jangling track that occasionally includes bits of a warm, stunning string… More »

Institute – “Cheerlessness”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 2:57 pm

The members of the band Institute come from the frothing, feral Austin, Texas punk scene; various people in the band also play in groups like Glue, Back To Black, and Wiccans. But on their own, Institute make a nervy, irradiated sort of garage-psych. There’s some 13th Floor Elevators in their sound, and some Cramps, too. More »

Christopher Owens – “Selfish Feelings”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 2:14 pm

Fun fact: When Christopher Owens releases another solo album, he’ll have put out more music under his own name than he did as the frontman of Girls. Owens released his sophomore solo album A New Testament last year, and today, he’s shared a new song from “a forthcoming album.” We don’t know anything about the… More »

O-Face – “740 Turbo”

By James Rettig / May 21, 2015 - 1:10 pm

You’ll always have a special attachment to the car you drove during high school. Mine was a hand-me-down baby blue Saturn. It was a lot better than the shitheaps that most of my friends were driving, but it was still ugly as all hell and never seemed to work right. And I miss the stupid… More »

Nick Diamonds – “Bohemian Groove”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 12:18 pm

The Unicorns/Islands frontman and Serial music composer Nick Thorburn always has a few things in the works. And right now, he’s getting ready to release City Of Quartz, a new solo album under his Nick Diamonds alias. We’ve posted “The Sting” and “Witch Window,” and now he’s shared a new one, “Bohemian Groove.” It’s the… More »

Death Cab For Cutie – “Black Sun (Dan Deacon Remix)”

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 11:41 am

If there was ever anyone that needed his wonderfully woeful voice and neat-box pop-rock fucked up by Dan Deacon’s mischievous touch, it’s Ben Gibbard. Death Cab For Cutie returned this year sans founding member Chris Walla with Kintsugi, their first album since 2011’s Codes And Keys, and Deacon has put the album’s first single “BlackMore »

Speedy Ortiz – “Basketball (Demo)”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 10:30 am

Carpark Records is about to celebrate its 16th anniversary with the release of a basketball-themed 12″ picture disc compilation called Sweet Sixteen.

Seapony – “Saw The Light” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 10:21 am

If you’ve spent any time at all in Seattle, you know that water informs most of the landscape. It’s a city perched on the edge of the ocean, and that expansive, fluid sense of possibility emerges in plenty of the art that’s created within its borders. Jenny Weidl and Danny Rowland recorded and wrote together… More »

Download King Louie Drilluminati 3 (God Of Drill)

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 9:19 am

Chicago rap headknocker King Louie was helping to develop the drill music sound back when Chief Keef was still just a problem child, and he always seems to summon his greatest fire when he’s working on his Drilluminati mixtape series. Drilluminati, from 2012, and Drilluminati 2, from 2013, both landed in our Mixtape Of The… More »

Destroyer – “Dream Lover”

By James Rettig / May 21, 2015 - 9:07 am

It’s been four years since the release of Destroyer’s magnificent Kaputt, which is quite possibly the best album of his long career. Since the release of 2013’s Five Spanish Songs covers EP, Dan Bejar has kept relatively quiet, but he’s back today with a new single and the announcement of a new record. Poison SeasonMore »

Hudson Mohawke – “Indian Steps” (Feat. Antony) & “Scud Books” Video

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 8:49 am

The UK producer Hudson Mohawke is a few weeks away from releasing Lantern, his first new solo album in what feels like forever. We’ve already heard the early tracks “Ryderz” and “Very First Step,” with Irfane. And given that HudMo has lately put in work with people like Kanye West and Pusha T, it’s not… More »

Kendrick Lamar & Lady Gaga – “PARTYNAUSEOUS”

By James Rettig / May 20, 2015 - 11:05 pm

Back in 2012, Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar hyped up a single called “PARTYNAUSEOUS,” which was originally supposed to be included on good kid, m.A.A.d. city, but was scrapped at the last minute. Gaga cited creative differences with Lamar’s camp, but stressed that it was in no way his fault. A few years later during… More »

Drake – “Can I” (Feat. Beyoncé)

By James Rettig / May 20, 2015 - 10:47 pm

A few days ago, a super short snippet of a new Drake song called “Can I” surfaced, and various versions of it have been swirling around the web since then. The most definitive version so far leaked a few hours ago, it seems, and it features a full Drake verse, plus a short vocal from… More »

Westkust – “Dishwasher”

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 4:47 pm

Swedish indie rockers Westkust’s latest song, “Dishwasher,” rushes by on lightning-bolt quickness and a jagged dream-pop charge. If the band reminds you of fellow Swedes Makthaverskan that’s probably because the two acts share two members — Hugo Randulv and Gustav Andersson — and a label. At times, this song sounds like four or five track… More »

Heather Woods Broderick – “Wyoming” Video

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 2:54 pm

The lead single off Heather Woods Broderick’s new solo album Glider, “A Call For Distance,” is sprawling and pristine, loping through New Age, jazz, and folk with ease. Broderick followed it up with “Wyoming,” an even more expansive, woozy song that evokes the flat, hot plains of its namesake state. My mom grew up i… More »

Class Actress – “More Than You”

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 1:15 pm

Recording as Class Actress, New York’s Elizabeth Harper released Rapprocher, an album of romantic chiffon synthpop, in 2011. We’ve heard pretty much nothing from her ever since. But now Class Actress is back with a new track called “More Than You,” a sweeping and keyboard-laden anthem about attraction. It’s a bit bigger and bolder-sounding tha… More »

Elohim – “She Talks Too Much”

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 12:49 pm

Elohim is an L.A. electro-pop singer who, Google tells me, is named after the Hebrew word for “god.” That is an ambitious thing to call yourself, and her new single “She Talks Too Much” does have a real sense of sweep to it, though I wouldn’t say she sounds like the voice of God or… More »

Porcelain Raft – “Half Awake”

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 11:45 am

Mauro Remiddi’s hazy synthpop is only half the story when it comes to his new Porcelain Raft EP Half Awake. Like all music born on the internet, it will be released digitally, but Remiddi is also releasing it as a cassette with custom linoleum prints he made himself as the artwork. The EP is coming… More »

Mourn – “Gertrudis, Get Through This!”

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 10:24 am

Mourn, a band of teenage Barcelona punks, released a really great self-titled debut album earlier this year. And today, they’re following it up with a new three-song 7″ called Gertrudis. The first of those three songs is a splintered sprint of a thing called “Gertrudis, Get Through This!,” and it’s another sign that these kid… More »

Ultimate Painting – “Break The Chain”

By Chris DeVille / May 20, 2015 - 10:17 am

UK duo Ultimate Painting is quickly becoming one of those side projects that eclipses the performers’ main gigs. James Hoare (Veronica Falls) and Jack Cooper (Mazes) released their excellent self-titled debut last year, and they’re back already this summer with LP2. Based on lead single “Break The Chain,” Green Lanes will see the Velvets-via-Pavement swagger… More »
