Blacklisters – “I Knock Myself Out”

By Tom Breihan / August 3, 2015 - 12:43 pm

Leeds noise-punkers Blacklisters make an impressively disgusting racket, one that recalls the fuzz-drenched ’90s glory days of Amphetamine Reptile Records. The band’s sophomore album Adult looms like a hammer over our heads, and we’ve already posted first single “Cash Cow.” Now Noisey has posted “I Knock Myself Out,” the follow-up, and it’s a two-minute murk-scream… More »


Damien Rice – “On Children”

By Lisa Brown / August 3, 2015 - 12:10 pm

Earlier this summer, we heard Damien Rice’s uplifting track “Hypnosis,” the first of his two original songs for the upcoming children’s movie The Prophet. The movie, which is produced by Salma Hayek-Pinaultis, is based on a 1923 collection of philosophical essays by Lebanese author Kahlil Gibran. Now he shares the second of the pair. “O… More »


Pusha T – “Amen (Hudson Mohawke Remix)” (Feat. Kanye West & Young Jeezy)

Hudson Mohawke and Pusha T are both members of Kanye West’s extended G.O.O.D. Music team, and they’ve previously teamed up on things like HudMo’s “Chimes” remix and his “Warriors” video. As it turns out, that intermittent team might be older than we thought. HudMo recently shared a remix of “Amen,” a track from Pusha’s 2011… More »


TRAAMS – “Succulent Thunder Anthem”

By Grace Birnstengel / August 3, 2015 - 11:51 am

Stu Hopkins of Chichester, England trio TRAAMS sings with a desperate sense of urgency that often is only captured as successfully by guitars. TRAAMS announced the release of their sophomore album, Modern Dancing, today, and have a new song to go with it. “Succulent Thunder Anthem” is a ferocious two-minute track filled with chants that… More »

A bunch of previously unreleased Nirvana mixes and demos have leaked online, and Reddit users have identified and offered info on the tracks, which are below. There’s an outtake of “Sappy” from the band’s Sound City recording sessions, two alternate takes of “Old Age,” and a new mix of “Verse Chorus Verse” from the same… More »


Sales – “Big Sis”

By James Rettig / August 3, 2015 - 11:10 am

Sales have shared their first new song since the release of their eponymous debut EP last fall — at least if you don’t count a new track that was included on The Le Sigh’s compilation. It’s called “Big Sis,” and sees the Florida duo traversing the same ground they have before, digging into their lightly… More »


Kero Kero Bonito – “Picture This (Felicita Remix)”

By James Rettig / August 3, 2015 - 10:48 am

I was a little bummed that we didn’t get a new Kero Kero Bonito jam to usher in the summer — they played a killer graduation anthem at SXSW that would have been a great fit — but they have just shared a new remix for their awesome-as-hell selfie-taking anthem “Picture This,” which was released… More »


Low – “What Part Of Me”

Minnesota legends Low have been making slow, patient, harmonically rich indie rock for many, many years. Their new album Ones And Sixes is set to arrive next month, which they recorded at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios, and we’ve already heard first single “No Comprende.” The next song they’ve shared is a full, warm tune… More »


Fresh Snow – “Proper Burial” (Feat. DIANA’s Carmen Elle) (Stereogum Premiere)

By Lisa Brown / August 3, 2015 - 10:44 am

Toronto quartet Fresh Snow knows how to bend the genres into one wonderfully noisy
soundscape by experimenting with fuzzy punk riffs and droning synths. They debuted their first album I, an instrumental psych experience, in 2013 along with a few singles, and they’re set to follow it up this fall with Won, which will… More »


Shelf Life – “Sinking Just Right” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Grace Birnstengel / August 3, 2015 - 10:30 am

Earlier this month, we shared “The Curse,” the warm, acoustic album opener from Scotty Leitch’s debut album as Shelf Life, Everyone Make Happy. Leitch is mostly a recording engineer and sideman with recent gigs like drumming for Alex G, but we like him in this new starring role. “Sinking Just Right” rides a sluggish ba… More »


Danny Brown + Clams Casino – “Worth It”

It just makes sense to get excited when you see the names “Danny Brown” and “Clams Casino” next to each other. The two have teamed up on a new track called “Worth It,” which they’ve contributed to this summer’s Adult Swim Singles series. And it’s a heavy one, a song that gives an absolutely unadulterated… More »


Hamilton Leithauser – “To Susan On The West Coast Waiting” (Donovan Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

By Lisa Brown / August 3, 2015 - 9:44 am

Legendary folk musician Donovan will have a tribute compilation out this fall, titled Gazing With Tranquility, through non-profit label Rock The Cause Records. Album proceeds will go towards the charity Huntington’s Hope, which provides college funds for children affected by Huntington’s disease. The album will feature reworked tracks from artists such as the Flamings Li… More »


Kite Base – “Dadum” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / August 3, 2015 - 8:25 am

When not lending low-end to Savages’ lockstep post-punk attack, Ayşe Hassan teams with fellow bassist Kendra Frost as Kite Base. As demonstrated on early single “Dadum,” the duo makes experimental electronic music with a heavy rock undercurrent and occasional flashes of pop. It’s as dark-tinged and rhythmically charged as you’d expect from a member of… More »

Since getting dropped by his label last year, exiled young Chicago drill star Chief Keef has already put out four mixtapes and an album. He’s been spending the past month or so feuding with Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel after the hologram benefit concert that he tried to put on was repeatedly shut down, but now… More »


Nai Harvest x Mac DeMarco – “Onion Man”

Indie rock court jester Mac DeMarco held an impromptu barbecue in Brooklyn last month, and beforehand, he spent four days recording Some Other Ones, an 8-track set of woozy, sun-warped instrumentals to soundtrack the event. Apparently inspired by his burst of lo-fi creativity, UK DIY label Art Is Hard have assembled some friends to put… More »


AFX (Aphex Twin) – “oberheim blacet1b”

Aphex Twin was infamously quiet for 13 years before releasing new album Syro last year, followed by enough random tracks to make new music from Richard D. James barely a surprising thing anymore. But today, BBC had the world premiere of James’ first track off his new EP Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008). The EP i… More »


Kill J – “Propaganda”

By Caitlin White / July 31, 2015 - 3:18 pm

Copenhagen’s fiercest drone-pop mercenary Kill J is back with a new track. “Propaganda” is a bombastic, fangs-bared snarl at sexism twisted into a glassy, sinuous groove. Take everything you know about Scandinavian pop and dip it in darkroom chemicals; Kill J is the monochrome film negative that emerges. “You should be more like those girl… More »

The latest installment of Ryan Adams’ prolific PaxAm singles series is here. The “Willow Lane” 7″ also features B-sides “Yes Or Run” and “Red Hot Blues.” The first two are prime examples of the ’80s roots-rock feel that crystallized on Adams’ self-titled 2014 LP, while “Red Hot Blues” is a 12-bar blues goof sung i… More »

A few weeks back we introduced you to Emilie Kahn and her trusty harp, Ogden, by way of their album’s beautiful title track, “Ten Thousand.” Now here’s footage of the Nü-Newsom giving Taylor Swift’s 1989 single “Style” a heavenly makeover. Nicolas Gouin directed the footage of Kahn’s live performance, which you can watch below. More »
