Geronimo! – “They Put A Hook Inside Of Me”

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 11, 2015
We premiered the first single off Geronimo!'s final release, the three-song EP Buzz Yr Girlfriend: Vol. 4 -- Why Did You Leave me?, back in February. The song is called "Low Fruit On The Vine," and I wrote approx. 150 words bemoaning the loss of one of my favorite Exploding In Sound bands. The… More »

Lydia Loveless – “I Would Die 4 U” (Prince Cover)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 11, 2015
The Chicago-based label Bloodshot will be releasing a pair of Prince covers by Lydia Loveless and Cory Branan on purple vinyl for Record Store Day. "I Would Die 4 U" happens to be my favorite Prince song -- my mom and I used to play it on her turntable, and when I moved to New… More »

Jai Paul – “Str8 Outta Mumbai (BenZel Remix)”

By Aaron Lindenberg / March 11, 2015
The last we heard from British beatmaker Jai Paul, he was hanging out in a studio with Miguel and cleaning up the mess after demos of his debut album got leaked. Well, good things come to those who wait, and BenZel's down-tempo redux of the glitchy yet groovy single "Str8 Outta Mumbai" i… More »

Active Child – “1999”

By Caitlin White / March 11, 2015
The last time Pat Grossi put out a full album -- 2011 -- electronic-tinged alt-R&B wasn't the pervasive force it is in 2015. The landscape has changed, and imitators of the form that Active Child helped initiate abound. It's to the point where I almost forgot that this combination of porcelain falsetto, slow grooves, and… More »

Zero 7 – “Last Light” (Feat. José González)

By Peter Helman / March 11, 2015
After releasing the Simple Science EP in August, British electroacoustic downtempo duo Zero 7 are back this month with the somewhat uncreatively but aptly titled EP3. Swedish singer/songwriter José González, responsible for some of the best parts of Zero 7's 2006 album The Garden, lends his otherworldly vocals to EP cut "Last Light." González'… More »

Marching Church – “King Of Song”

By Caitlin White / March 11, 2015
Elias Bender Rønnenfelt is Danish punk group Iceage's frontman, but before all that he has also been making music as Marching Church for his own solo project. Rønnenfelt is releasing a full-length called This World Is Not Enough at the end of March, and he previously shared "Hungry For Love." Today we get to hear… More »

EMA – “Black Boys On Mopeds” (Sinéad O’Connor Cover)

By Tom Breihan / March 11, 2015
On her 1990 debut album I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got, Sinéad O'Connor sang about police brutality in the UK on the song "Black Boys In Mopeds." Around Christmas, after seeing the rash of American police killings that made last year a hell of a time to be alive, Erika M. Anderso… More »

Mastodon – “White Walker”

By Tom Breihan / March 11, 2015
It didn't make any sense last year when HBO released a mixtape of rappers referencing Game Of Thrones, and it doesn't make any more sense this year. But it's happening again anyway! And the forthcoming Catch The Throne Vol. 2 won't just feature rappers and R&B singers like Ty Dolla $ign, Talib Kweli, Snoo… More »

Young Fathers – “Shame”

By Caitlin White / March 11, 2015
Following up a Mercury Prize is no easy task, and considering UK-based trio Young Fathers won the honor for their 2014 record DEAD, they have a lot to live up to. Listening to their new single "Shame," though, it doesn't seem like that pressure even crossed their minds while recording the upcoming White MenMore »

HSY – “Goin’ Out West” (Tom Waits Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

By Collin Robinson / March 11, 2015
Canadian hardcore band HSY smacked us with the A-Side to their 7" "Sally" last month, teasing a Tom Waits cover as the B-Side. Today, the band reveal a reworking of Waits' "Goin' Out West" in conjunction with the single's release. It's hard to harness Waits' gravelly tone, but lead singer Jude's distorted, guttural howl… More »

Wes Period – “Lilac Rose” (Feat. Fat Tony) (Stereogum Premiere)

By Collin Robinson / March 11, 2015
LA hip-hop is in a rebuilding period much like the city's beloved, but beleagured Lakers. Although DJ Mustard's beats have ruled the radio for well over a year, it is hard to find Angeleno voices that have a steady presence on the radio and in the public consciousness other than Kendrick Lamar and YG. Young… More »

Kanye West – “Awesome”

By Chris DeVille / March 11, 2015
"Awesome," Kanye West's long-rumored love ballad for his wife, Kim Kardashian, has emerged online. And although I wouldn't describe it as awesome per se -- in fact, I really hope it won't be on So Help Me God -- it is at the very least awesomely entertaining. Good luck keeping track of all the… More »

Fort Lean – “Quiet Day” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / March 11, 2015
Though they've been putting out music since 2011, Brooklyn's Fort Lean are only now releasing their debut album. Quiet Day will be out 6/2, and today we're premiering the title track, which follows up their other new singles "I Don't Mind" and "Cut To The Chase." The title track rolls along… More »

Pet Symmetry – “Class Action Force (Useless Tools)” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Collin Robinson / March 11, 2015
Emo trio Pet Symmetry comprises a hodgepodge of members from Dowsing, Kittyhawk, Mountains For Clouds, and Into It. Over It. The band announced their album Pets Hounds a few weeks ago, simultaneously sharing the lead single "Give Thanks (Get Lost)." Now they follow with a second single, "Class Action Force (Useless Tools)." Pet Symmetry… More »

Beauty Pill – “Dog With Rabbit In Mouth, Unharmed”

By Tom Breihan / March 11, 2015
Chad Clark used to make self-conscious, fractured postpunk as the frontman of the great D.C. band Smart Went Crazy, probably the single most self-aware band in the history of Dischord Records. Since 2011, he's led the mutant-pop quintet Beauty Pill. But Beauty Pill haven't released an album since 2004's The Unsustainable Lifestyle, largely because Clark… More »

G.L.O.S.S. – “G.L.O.S.S. (We’re From The Future)”

By Tom Breihan / March 11, 2015
The feminist Olympia, Washington punk band G.L.O.S.S. have a name that stands for "Girls Living Outside of Society's Shit." Their fearsome, intense sound is closer to Discharge or Doom than it is to any of Olympia's older punk feminists, like Bikini Kill or Sleater-Kinney. It's a burst of immediate pride and rage, and it's just… More »

QT – “Hey QT (Diplo Remix)”

By James Rettig / March 11, 2015
Diplo has put out his own spin on last summer's epic A. G. Cook/SOPHIE team-up "Hey QT." The famous producer -- who recently put out a new Major Lazer track and a whole collaboration as Jack Ü -- lightens the track up, adds some pinging video game blips, and tacks on a… More »

Sufjan Stevens – “Should Have Known Better”

By Chris DeVille / March 11, 2015
"Should Have Known Better" is our second preview of Sufjan Stevens' Carrie & Lowell, and like "No Shade In The Shadow Of The Cross," it's a spare, gorgeous, heavy-hearted folk song. This one is slightly more upbeat, with an instrumental interlude that might be the prettiest moment on the album. Listen below. More »

Jenny Death Soon? Dutch Retailer Posts Clips From New Death Grips Album

By James Rettig / March 10, 2015
As always, take all Death Grips news with a grain of salt, but this sure seems like it's the real thing. A Dutch retailer called Bol has listed a CD version of the group's highly anticipated, oft-teased "final" album The Powers That B, which wouldn't be that big of a deal except here's the… More »

Faith Healer – “Infinite Return”

By Caitlin White / March 10, 2015
Faith Healer is technically Jessica Jalbert's solo project, although for Cosmic Troubles, her first record under the Faith Healer moniker, she worked extensively with Renny Wilson. But she made it clear in a blog post that with or without Wilson's excellent guidance and help, she'll make music as Faith Healer from now on. Sometime… More »
