By James Rettig / April 7, 2015 - 6:21 pm
The Grand Theft Auto-inspired compilation album The Alchemist and Oh No Present: Welcome to Los Santos has already brought us original tracks from Killer Mike and MNDR, Action Bronson and Danny Brown, and Earl Sweatshirt and Future Islands' Samuel T. Herring, and now it's responsible for another solid team-up. TV On The Radio's Tunde Adebimpe… More »

Stream Ava Luna Infinite House

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 7, 2015 - 4:20 pm
Infinite House, the latest and best album by Brooklyn's Ava Luna, is streaming online in full today. We'll get to that momentarily, but first, a few words about the record's stand-out single "Steve Polyester,' which also emerged online today on its own. More »

Nothing – “Something In The Way” (Nirvana Cover)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 7, 2015 - 3:55 pm
Philly's Nothing have shared a cover of Nirvana's muted and melancholic "Something In The Way," the last track on the band's seminal 1991 album Nevermind (second-last if you count the secret song "Endless, Nameless"). The cover will be included on Robotic Empire's second Nirvana tribute album, Whatever Nevermind, which is due out on Record Store… More »

Slime – “My Company”

By Caitlin White / April 7, 2015 - 3:38 pm
According to the story, Will Archer's early family life was completely devoid of music. His sole sonic inspiration derived from the rhythms and clicks of his father's coffee factory. Later, he embraced a drum kit with equal fervor, and now that Archer makes music as Slime, his obsession with percussion still lingers. After releasing the… More »

Raekwon – “1,2 1,2″ (Feat. Snoop Dogg)

By Tom Breihan / April 7, 2015 - 3:17 pm
A Raekwon/Snoop Dogg collab is the sort of thing that would've set the world on fire in 1995, and as it turns out, it still sounds pretty goddam good today. Rae's long-in-the-works new album Fly International Luxurious Art is finally set to come out later this month, and we've already heard him team up with… More »

The Holydrug Couple – “Baby, I’m Going Away”

By Caitlin White / April 7, 2015 - 2:09 pm
Chilean psych-addled dreamers the Holydrug Couple are releasing their second album Moonlust this spring, and we've already heard the woozy tranquility of "Dreamy." Today they've debuted another track off the album, "Baby, I'm Going Away," and it builds a droning goodbye anthem on a rock-solid bass line and underlying back beat. There's plenty of lea… More »

Prince Rama – “XO” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / April 7, 2015 - 1:17 pm
Prince Rama's junkyard pop toes the line of ironic camp, woozy psychedelics, and sci-fi obsessive with surprising grace. The last we really heard from Brooklyn sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson was back in 2012 when they released Top 10 Hits Of The End Of The World, but today we're premiering a special one-off track that… More »

Strange Names – “Ricochet” (Yeasayer Remix)

By Caitlin White / April 7, 2015 - 1:00 pm
Minneapolis dance trio Strange Names signed to the storied New York indie label Frenchkiss last summer, moved to Brooklyn, and began prepping their debut album Use Your Time Wisely. In the process, Liam Benzvi, Francis Ximenez, and Fletcher Aleckson picked up fans like Azealia Banks (who apparently went to high school with Benzvi), and Yeasayer,… More »

DJ Snake & Dillon Francis – “Get Low (Remix)” (Feat. Rae Sremmurd)

By Caitlin White / April 7, 2015 - 12:58 pm
"Don't throw shade, throw parties!" That's the ethos that Rae Sremmurd preach on "Get Low (Remix)" -- because someone thought that scream-and-siren purveyor DJ Snake and the multicolor-EDM of Dillon Francis on a song together somehow wasn't enough adrenaline. Initially, the brothers Rae help calm down the song with a slow, meticulous spoken section, but… More »

Timeshares – “Heavy Hangs” (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / April 7, 2015 - 12:01 pm
It took Timeshares four years to put together a follow-up to their 2011 debut, Bearable, and that long gestation period comes through on their new record, Already Dead. "Heavy Hangs" shows off the band's knack for razor-cut punk and imbues it with a Southern rock tinge that elevates it to the next level. Everything sound… More »

Ben Browning – “Make It Easy”

By Caitlin White / April 7, 2015 - 11:15 am
Cut Copy was initially formed as Dan Whitford's solo project, so even though he's been joined by Ben Browning and several others, it makes sense that as the group's bassist, Browning might be inclined to strike out on his own. Browning kickstarted his solo career with 2012's Lover Motion Ep. Now, "Make It Easy" lead… More »

Fake Palms – “Sun Drips” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Aaron Lindenberg / April 7, 2015 - 10:59 am
Before Fake Palms signed to Buzz Records, it was the bedroom project of Toronto-based musician Michael le Riche. Just this year le Riche enlisted members of Toronto heavyweights Slim Twig, Tropics and Hooded Fang, and Fake Palms arrived at its current sound -- driving guitars, murky bass, and relentless, metallic drums. Their first single "Su… More »

Kenny Knight – “Whiskey” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / April 7, 2015 - 10:58 am
Sometimes, America swallows dreams whole. Lost in the roiling vat of U.S. history, perfectly good -- maybe even fabulous -- artifacts get buried. Who knows what's been neglected under piles of dust and old venetian blinds in suburban garages, chucked out of car windows into passing wheat fields, or bent out of shape in motorcycle… More »

iji – “Hard 2 Wait” (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / April 7, 2015 - 10:36 am
iji have been making delightful pop pastiche out of their rainy Seattle home base for almost a decade. With enough releases that you'd need three hands to count them all, the band has a polished way about them. On their latest album, Whatever Will Happen, iji blends soulful beach rock with scrappy K Records-style twee,… More »

ADVAETA – “Church Cult” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 7, 2015 - 10:23 am
Brooklyn's Advaeta is a three-piece who emit more noise than seems possible, all the while maintaining steadfast melodic arcs that welcome a listener in. Lani Combier-Kapel, Amanda Salane, and Sara Fantry will release their full-length record Death And The Internet on local label Fire Talk at the end of the month, and "Church Cult" i… More »

River Tiber – “Motives” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / April 7, 2015 - 10:05 am
Serendipity has been good to Tommy Paxton-Beesley. The 24-year-old producer churns out the kind of bedroom-pop-R&B hybrid that studio technicians are now trying to recreate, but can't. You know, the kind of bleary, kaleidoscopic nostalgia that caught Drake's ear and propelled Paxton-Beesley into a spotlight much larger than the glow cast from a bedside lamp. More »

Bully – “Trying” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 7, 2015 - 10:04 am
Alicia Bognanno doesn't fear exposure. As the frontperson of Nashville's fast-rising band Bully, Bognanno writes songs that peel away at her layered insides, revealing more of herself in several minutes than she probably would over the course of an hour-long conversation. "Trying" is the second single off of Bully's forthcoming debut full-length Feels Like, and… More »

Vicktor Taiwò – “Feathers & Wax” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / April 7, 2015 - 10:03 am
On "Feathers & Wax," Nigeria-born, London-based Vicktor Taiwò plays a warm, airy version of synthpop that instantly registers as tender and true. It reminds me of Rhye's intimate balladry subtly jolted with rhythm and transported from the dark of the bedroom to the great outdoors. On SoundCloud, the song is tagged as "cuddlecore folktronica," which… More »

Preview Kanye West’s “U Mad” And Kendrick Lamar’s “All Day” Remix

By Chris DeVille / April 7, 2015 - 9:59 am
Two sonic snippets related to Kanye West's upcoming album So Help Me God appeared online last night. First: During a DJ set, Vic Mensa played a verse from the studio version of "U Mad," the song Kanye and Mensa performed live in London. Second: There's also a maddeningly brief preview of Kendrick Lamar rapping over… More »

Bent Denim – “City Of Gardens” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Patrick Hosken / April 7, 2015 - 9:44 am
Bent Denim's backstory reads like a modern update on the Postal Service: Two pals in two cities, making music and swapping it through the mail (email in their case). But the music of this New Orleans-via-Nashville duo, made up of Ben Littlejohn and Dennis Sager, is less glitchy computer emo and more gauzy after-class notebook… More »
