Aaron Taos – “ILL” Video

By Misha Sesar / July 21, 2015 - 1:11 pm

Time seems to move slowly post-breakup. You sort of just want to vegetate and think about everything that has happened. In his first video, Brooklyn-based Aaron Taos does exactly that. Lying on the floor on a sheepskin rug with a vinyl of his track “ILL” playing, Taos contemplates life after the end of a romance. More »


Julien Baker – “Sprained Ankle”

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / July 21, 2015 - 1:06 pm

Julien Baker has virtually no online footprint; her Facebook page boasts just over 200 “likes,” and her Bandcamp hasn’t even gone live yet. But the Murfreesboro musician has been on the scene for a while as a member of Memphis’ Forrister, and her debut solo LP, Sprained Ankle, is slated to be released this coming… More »


Hinds – “Chili Town”

By Caitlin White / July 21, 2015 - 12:51 pm

Hinds are a garage rock quartet from Madrid. Formerly known as Deers — legal action prompted the name change — the four-piece are working on their debut album. Today they’ve shared the bright, slow-rolling “Chili Town.” “I am swimming in the dark / ‘Cause all your friends are sharks,” the girls sing, purposefully out of… More »


Cowtown – “Castle Greyscale”

By Misha Sesar / July 21, 2015 - 12:21 pm

English post-punks Cowtown are ready to soothe your punk fervor. The trio began as a reaction to the heavy post-hardcore scene in their hometown Leeds, making their rounds in sweaty basements and DIY venues. Their new demo “Castle Greyscale” is streaming via Fat Cat Records and sounds like a modern punk version of Devo: those… More »


Kurt Vile – “Pretty Pimpin” Video + b’lieve i’m goin down… Details

The first single from Kurt Vile’s heavily anticipated new album b’lieve i’m goin down… is the intriguingly titled “Pretty Pimpin.” It’s got more momentum than your average Vile song, though its urgent heartland rock sound is still tinged with his usual sighing melancholy. “All I want is to just have fun/ Live my life like… More »


Major Lazer – “Lost” (Feat. MØ) (Frank Ocean Cover)

By Tom Breihan / July 21, 2015 - 8:49 am
3

It’s now been more than three years since Frank Ocean gave us his Channel Orange masterpiece, and everything we know about its eventual follow-up belongs to the realms of rumor and conjecture. So here’s a slight consolation prize: Diplo’s Major Lazer crew and the Danish singer MØ, the team behind the great and enormous summer… More »


Museum Mouth – “Melvin”

By James Rettig / July 20, 2015 - 6:02 pm

North Carolina trio Museum Mouth recently attracted the attention of Say Anything’s Max Bemis, who snapped them up to his Rory Records roster. And, while a new full-length is expected from them some time down the line, for now they’ve got a one-off 7-inch coming up called Most Likely To Be Conflicted, featuring two new… More »


Stream Rat Boy Neighbourhood Watch

By Grace Birnstengel / July 20, 2015 - 5:49 pm

Don’t confuse Essex’s Rat Boy with the hip-hop trio Ratking or the terrible 1986 movie Ratboy. Rat Boy is Jordan Cardy, a 19-year-old who definitely exists in his own category, but what that category is exactly I have no idea. His new 23-minute mixtape, Neighborhood Watch, is a mind-boggling mix of reggae, rap, hip-hop, garage… More »

Though most of us are still reeling under the giant, spectacular weight of the “Bitch Better Have My Money” video, Rihanna and her host of collaborators continue to bear down with previews of new music. Rap’s go-to hitmaker Mike Will Made It shared a snippet of yet another new track from her forthcoming album R8. More »

Nicholas Jaar, Julia Holter, Holly Herndon, William Basinski and a variety of other experimental electronic artists and producers formed a supergroup of sorts to create the collaborative sound collage “Other People’s Imaginary Feast.” Jaar’s label, Other People, put the group together in order to demo the concept of Sensory Percussion, a new technological development that… More »


Mac DeMarco – “No Other Heart”

By Caitlin White / July 20, 2015 - 5:01 pm
1

The more songs Mac DeMarco releases off his upcoming mini-album Another One, the more clear it becomes that this is one moony set of songs. DeMarco is in fine lover-boy form on his latest, “No Other Heart,” channeling the same lovesick sentiments as “I’ve Been Waiting For Her” and “The Way You’d Love Her.” If… More »


Disclosure – “Moving Mountains” (Feat. Brendan Reilly)

By Chris DeVille / July 20, 2015 - 4:51 pm

Disclosure have shared another song from their sophomore album Caracal, and this one is as undeniably chill as “Holding On” was amped up. The Lawrence brothers have talked a lot about moving beyond their two-step garage roots into full-fledged pop music this time around, and “Moving Mountains” both does and doesn’t do that. On one… More »


Foals – “Mountain At My Gates”

English tropical-prog five-piece Foals announced their fourth album What Went Down in June, and shared the title track. Today they’ve offered up the second single, “Mountains At My Gates,” a fuzzed-out, frenetic journey driven by psychedelic guitar solos to a fever pitch. Yannis Philippakis wails like he’s ascended the highest peak and wants the whole… More »


Stream Philadelphia Collins Derp Swervin’ EP (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / July 20, 2015 - 1:55 pm

Philadelphia Collins’ debut EP, Derp Swervin’, is more a disparate collection of ideas than a cohesive whole. It’s the new project of Speedy Ortiz/Grass Is Green guitarist Devin McKnight and Ovlov drummer Theo Hartlett, and they round up vocalists from around the Boston area to contribute their own take on things. There’s Palehound’s Ellen Kempner,… More »


Empress Of – “Kitty Kat”

By Grace Birnstengel / July 20, 2015 - 1:54 pm
2

Judging by the maturity of her craft, you wouldn’t think Lorely Rodriguez had yet to release a full-length album as Empress Of. On tracks like “Water Water” and “Realize You,” Rodriguez sounds perfectly polished and layered in her electro-infused power ballads, music that marks her as a peer of FKA twigs. Finally, we’ve caught word… More »


Drinks – “Laying Down Rock”

By Caitlin White / July 20, 2015 - 1:21 pm

Drinks is the new and somewhat unlikely combination of Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley aka White Fence. Their collaborative album Hermits On Holiday will be out mid-August, and we’ve already heard the jittery title track and seen its fuzzy, quirky video. Today they’ve shared another song, “Laying Down Rock,” and Presley handles vocals o… More »


Myrkur – “Skøgen Skulle Dø”

Myrkur’s first full-length album, M, is coming out next month, but I’ve already written a whole bunch about the thing: here and here and here and here and here. “Skøgen Skulle Dø” is technically the third album track to be debuted in advance of the record’s release, but it’s the fourth if you count the… More »

While this Monday mostly is a dark and lonely place, hope springs eternal that Drake’s new album will be coming soon. The fount and forum of all things leaked, KanyeToThe has unearthed a snippet of a new Drake song to brighten our week, as Complex points out. Some people are speculating that it sounds like… More »

Ever since news of a Titus Andronicus rock opera first trickled out — and especially once we got our ears on “Dimed Out” — The Most Lamentable Tragedy has been one of the most anticipated rock albums in recent memory. Everything since then has poured gasoline on the fire: “Fatal Flaw,” the Sorry About TheMore »


Peaches – “Bodyline” (Feat. Nick Zinner)

By Grace Birnstengel / July 20, 2015 - 11:57 am

Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim programming block releases a series of free weekly singles from moderate-to-large-name artists every year under their “Adult Swim Singles” feature, each with a unique piece of cover art. So far this year, we’ve heard tracks from artists like Swervedriver, D∆WN, and Cherry Glazerr. This week’s single is from Peaches, the otherworldly… More »
