Dane Terry – “Kids” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / February 19, 2015
Dane Terry's voice warbles with the kind of warm uncertainty I've always loved in a vocalist. Hesitant in tone only, he plows through the cinematic landscape of "Kids" with the steady hand of a composer, eager to conduct the chromatic time warp back to childhood. This song lurches through Elton John balladry, psychedelic fuzziness, imposing… More »

Family Bike – “Idiot Boy” (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / February 19, 2015
Family Bike is the new project of long-time friends Karl Kuehn (who also heads up Museum Mouth) and drummer Taylor Haag, and they're getting ready to release their debut album, Everything You Own Is Anagrammed, in the spring. They're leading things off with "Idiot Boy," which Kuehn describes as a "song for a Germa… More »

Björk – “NotGet (Lotic Remix)”

By Chris DeVille / February 19, 2015
Björk co-hosted Tri-Angle Records' Rinse FM podcast last night, and her set included a new remix of her Vulnicura track "NotGet" by Berlin producer Lotic. What once was a boisterous orchestral number is now bathed in piercing drones and aggressive drones -- a different way to express the same emotional turmoil. Björk introduces the… More »

Geronimo! – “Low Fruit On The Vine” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / February 19, 2015
My first Geronimo! show was supposed to be the last Geronimo! show; the Chicagoan trio traveled to New York to play both the official and unofficial Exploding in Sound showcases, and I fortunately caught them at the latter. The band has since announced that they will play a for-real-this-time farewell show at Chicago's Beat Kitche… More »

Blur Announce New Album Magic Whip, Hear 1st Single “Go Out”

By Michael Nelson / February 19, 2015
Blur's last album, Think Tank, was released in 2003, but they've spent much of the last few years teasing a follow-up, with Damon Albarn saying as far back as 2012 that "there will definitely be another Blur album." Today, though, that album has been announced, via a video chat on the band's Facebook:… More »

Chvrches – “Cry Me A River” (Justin Timberlake Cover)

By Tom Breihan / February 19, 2015
Scottish synthpoppers Chvrches love covering other people's songs. They're only one album into their career, and we've already ranked their 10 best cover songs. And now that list is already out of date! The band is hard at work on a sophomore album, but they still found time to stop by BBC Radio… More »

Jam City – “Proud”

By Tom Breihan / February 19, 2015
The UK producer Jam City is a longtime affiliate of Night Slugs, the futuristic dance music label and crew, and he's assured himself a spot in heaven already thanks to his production work on Kelela's great Cut 4 Me. But judging by his latest track, Jam City's new album Dream A Garden won't be… More »

Algiers – “But She Was Not Flying”

By Caitlin White / February 18, 2015
Algiers is gospel spook. It's both the demons barely held at bay in the darkness outside a chapel's golden-lit double doors and the preacher gesticulating from the pulpit. It's sin and holy water simmering to a boil, Franklin James Fisher's voice erupting as the steam off the top. "But She Was Not Flying" is a… More »

Antony Hegarty & Yoko Ono – “I Love You Earth”

By Tom Breihan / February 18, 2015
Yoko Ono turns 82 today, and to celebrate that birthday, she's teamed up with Antony Hegarty, another iconoclast with a voice so distinctive that you could pick it out from a block away. Together, they've recorded a new version of "I Love You Earth," a song that Ono originally released on her 1985 album Starpeace. More »

Toro Y Moi, Speedy Ortiz, Dan Deacon, & More Contribute To Basketball-Themed Carpark Comp

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / February 18, 2015
To celebrate their 16th birthday, Carpark Records will press a limited-edition 12" compilation of unreleased tracks by members of their roster. The picture disc is basketball-themed, so all 9 tracks and 19 locked grooves will allude to the sport in some way. Speedy Ortiz included a demo version of "Basketball" off of their prodigious SportsMore »

Wilsen – “Sea To Sea (Wye Oak Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Aaron Lindenberg / February 18, 2015
Tamsin Wilson's voice is so intimate that her atmospheric indie pop feels like a long phone call with a significant other. It's only fitting that she's caught the attention of Wye Oak, a band known for merging subtle, commanding vocals with powerful instrumentals. The Baltimore duo have given Wilsen's gentle ballad "Sea To Sea" a… More »

Colin Stetson & Sarah Neufeld – “The Sun Roars Into View”

By Caitlin White / February 18, 2015
Colin Stetson and Sarah Neufield do not make music for the faint of heart. They've worked together extensively in the past, and each toured with collectives like Arcade Fire and Bell Orchestre, but "The Sun Roars Into View" is the first song off their debut full-length as a duo. Although its title refers to the… More »

Crocodiles – “Crybaby Demon” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / February 18, 2015
We named Crocodiles a Band To Watch way back in 2009, and since then, they've released four full-length albums and a slew of EPs. We haven't heard much from the Southern California-based duo since 2013's Crimes Of Passion, but today they announce that they've completed a follow-up record titled Boys, which is set to… More »

JEFF The Brotherhood – “Black Cherry Pie” (Feat. Ian Anderson)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / February 18, 2015
JEFF The Brotherhood have had an exciting week. The band announced yesterday that they are stoked to have been dropped from the "clutches of the demented vulture that is Warner Bros" and will release their forthcoming album Wasted On The Dream on their own excellent label, Infinity Cat, instead. In addition to that, Collee… More »

Jacco Gardner – “Find Yourself”

By Caitlin White / February 18, 2015
The concept of "finding yourself" is so far distanced from having any genuine meaning in our postmodern, ironic 21st-century reality that it's more likely to elicit a guffaw than anything else. Which is a shame, because self-exploration isn't a vacuous carry-over from the '60s, it's an exercise of inner strength. So even if Dutch producer/multi-instrumentalist… More »

Red Red Meat – “Idiot Son (Cleversley Version)” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / February 18, 2015
Before Tim Rutili was fronting the legendary Chicago experimental folk-rock band Califone and Brian Deck was producing landmark albums like Modest Mouse's The Moon And Antarctica, they honed their craft in Red Red Meat. The quartet's noise-damaged version of roots rock -- often described as the sound of neon dirt -- was the raw material… More »

Le Volume Courbe – “The House” (Feat. Kevin Shields)

By Chris DeVille / February 18, 2015
Kevin Shields has history with Le Volume Courbe; the My Bloody Valentine mastermind guested on the London band's 2005 album I Killed My Best Friend. A decade later, Shields has joined forces with Le Volume Courbe again on "The House," the A-side from the band's new single, which also features contributions from Primal Scream's Marti… More »

Download Chief Keef Sorry 4 The Weight Mixtape

By Tom Breihan / February 18, 2015
Chief Keef has never exactly been famous for his wordplay, but let it be known that he just released a mixtape with a title that puns on the mixtape Lil Wayne released last month. Keef has become both crazily prolific and crazily weird since Interscope dropped him late last year, and the new SorryMore »

Squarepusher – “Rayc Fire 2″

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / February 18, 2015
Tom Jenkinson (bka Squarepusher) has been a longtime signee to London's legendary electronic label Warp Records, and the last time we heard a full-length from him was in 2012's Ufabulum. Today, Warp announced that Squarepusher will return in April with a new LP entitled Damogen Furies. "Rayc Fire 2" is the record's glitchy, jittery first… More »

Blanck Mass – “Dead Format”

By Tom Breihan / February 18, 2015
Benjamin John Power is one half of Fuck Buttons, and he also records noisy, intense electronic music on his own as Blanck Mass. Power just signed a deal with Sacred Bones, and we posted his remix of new labelmate John Carpenter's "Fallen" a couple of weeks ago. Now, Power has announced his follow-u… More »
