Galantis – “Peanut Butter Jelly”

By Caitlin White / April 20, 2015 - 3:09 pm
Galantis is the Swedish duo Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw, who have been the masterminds in the songwriting credits for tracks like Icona Pop's "I Love It" and Britney Spears' "Toxic." You'll hear the same glittery, earworm elements that made those songs pop in their new track "Peanut Butter Jelly." It splits the tidal wave… More »

STS x RJD2 – “420”

By Caitlin White / April 20, 2015 - 3:05 pm
Eclectic Philadelphia producer RJD2 has teamed with Atlanta-raised, Philly-based rapper STS for an entire collaborative album intuitively titled STS x RJD2. Previously they shared the brassy, soulful "Hold On, Here It Go," and today they're honoring 4/20 by releasing their song of the same name. "420" features even more retro, feel-good production and finds STS… More »

Jaga Jazzist – “Oban (Todd Terje Remix)”

By Tom Breihan / April 20, 2015 - 2:26 pm
The way-out Norwegian jazz octed Jaga Jazzist is coming back later this year with a new album called Starfire; we've already posted the title track. Fellow Norwegian Todd Terje seems to come from a different musical universe entirely, but the frisky dance producer has just dropped a nearly 10-minute remix for "Oban," one of the… More »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone”

By Caitlin White / April 20, 2015 - 1:31 pm
Funk has sashayed its way back into the forefront of music, and almost no one is incorporating it better than Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Maybe it's Ruban Nielson's expansive, plush, porous voice -- that I previously praised for its impact on "Multi-Love" -- but the enormous grooves on new track "Can't Keep Checking My Phone" seem… More »

Fucked Up – “California Cold” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Tom Breihan / April 20, 2015 - 12:49 pm
Once a year or thereabouts, the great Fucked Up release a new 12" single in their Zodiac series. All those singles feature long, adventurous songs inspired by the years of the Chinese calendar. Their latest is the 20-minute "Year Of The Hare," and it's the seventh in the series. The single is out in June,… More »

Turnover – “Humming”

By Caitlin White / April 20, 2015 - 12:35 pm
Turnover are a Virginia-based band on the cusp of releasing their sophomore album, Peripheral Vision. Most of their songs support heavy, sad emotions with a gossamer mesh of guitar work that borders on shoegaze but moves too nimbly to get caught up in staring at the floor. I previously wrote about Turnover's "Cutting My FingersMore »

O-Face – “Yolanda” (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / April 20, 2015 - 12:21 pm
O-Face's debut album flew a bit under the radar, but it was one of last year's most charming releases, a collection of shaggy and ambling pop tracks that hit a sweet spot. In a few months, the band will put out a follow-up EP, Mint, that was recorded during their last year together at Bard… More »

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 20, 2015 - 11:48 am
In honor of today's... err... holiday, Spotify has compiled a list of all of the songs most frequently included on 4/20-themed playlists, along with a few other fun facts. According to Spotify, 75 percent of the 40,000+ 4/20 playlists on the site were created by men, and unsurprisingly, the most-streamed 4/20 track is Cypress Hill'… More »

Stream Samo Sound Boy Begging Please

By Caitlin White / April 20, 2015 - 11:33 am
Begging Please is an album that will come to you when you need it. Maybe you don't need it right now, or maybe you do. It doesn't really matter. Sculpted after Marvin Gaye's iconic ode to lost love Here, My Dear, the grace and speed of Begging Please emulates the pacing of a relationship and… More »

Mumford & Sons – “Snake Eyes”

By Tom Breihan / April 20, 2015 - 10:55 am
The tremendous doofs in Mumford & Sons are continuing with their questionable plan to leave behind the big-tent neo-folk that made them famous. The band's new album Wilder Mind looms imminent, and the hamfisted early singles "Believe" and "The Wolf" move the band toward a supremely bland and character-free form of rock music. The latest… More »

Stream Bill Fay Who Is The Sender?

By Caitlin White / April 20, 2015 - 10:48 am
Bill Fay's simple, rhetorical question to the universe probes at cosmic significance on Who Is The Sender? It's a record constructed around the strange impulses and ideas that enter our lives, using little emblems of the physical world to dig into the essence of mortality. "Something Else Ahead" looks toward an eternity that may crumble… More »

Stream Roadkill Ghost Choir’s ’80s Covers EP Keep It Under Cover

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 20, 2015 - 10:47 am
Roadkill Ghost Choir released their debut full-length, In Tongues, last fall, and we hadn't heard much from them since premiering the video for the single "Slow Knife" soon after. Today, the band released their new EP, Keep It Under Cover, on SoundCloud and announced it via Facebook, stating that: "These are tunes for drinking, weeping,… More »

Stream Braids Deep In The Iris

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 20, 2015 - 10:42 am
When Braids announced their third full-length with the release of "Miniskirt," it became clear that Deep In The Iris was slated to make a statement. The single is all at once a takedown of deeply ingrained patriarchal societal structures, of domestic violence, and of slut-shaming. It's an anthem and an audacious first offering. But though… More »

Dej Loaf – “Me U & Hennessy (Remix)” (Feat. Lil Wayne)

By Tom Breihan / April 20, 2015 - 9:59 am
The Detroit sing-rapper Dej Loaf blew up last year on the strength of the murder-threat anthem "Try Me," so it was a bit of a surprise to hear her come with the heartfelt sex ballad "Me U & Hennessy" on last year's great Sell Sole mixtape. Last week, she came out with a video for… More »

Pompeya – “Pasadena” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Patrick Hosken / April 20, 2015 - 9:58 am
Further proving that the '80s really are here to stay forever, Moscow's Pompeya have dropped a new shimmering single called "Pasadena" in advance of their new album, Real, due out next month. The song's a glitzy, neon-sunset, convertible cruise down palm-treed lanes, which is all very confusing because, again, they're from Moscow, a city not… More »

Foo Fighters – “Empty Handed” & “Kids In America” (Kim Wilde Cover)

By James Rettig / April 19, 2015 - 2:27 pm
For Record Store Day this year, Foo Fighters (and official RSD ambassador Dave Grohl) put out Songs From The Laundry Room, a 10" that contains demo versions of two '95 singles ("Alone + Easy Target" and "Big Me), a cover, and a previously unreleased song "Empty Handed." The cover is of Kim Wilde's iconic "Kid… More »

Father John Misty – “Never Been A Woman”

By James Rettig / April 19, 2015 - 1:07 pm
A few days ago we heard "I Loved You, Honeybee," the alternate title track to Father John Misty's new album I Love You, Honeybear that served as the A-side to his heart-shaped exclusive Record Store Day release. Now, he's the B-side to that release: a slow, folky ballad called "Never Been A Woman." Listen below. More »
