Chromatics – “I Can Never Be Myself When You’re Around”

By Tom Breihan / March 5, 2015
Sometime very soon, Chromatics are planning to release their new album Dear Tommy, the follow-up to 2012's great Kill For Love. We've posted first single "Just Like You," and now they've shared "I Can Never Be Myself When You're Around." It's a song worthy of this group's dark glamor, a glittering and… More »

Celestial Shore – “Now I Know” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 5, 2015
In the fall of 2014, Celestial Shore released Enter Ghost, 12 lush and mellow songs that easily soundtracked the city's descent into winter. Today, the Brooklyn-based band has shared a video for the mildly morose, but totally catchy "Now I Know." Celestial Shore has a pretty good track record for releasing engaging, artfully thought-out videos,… More »

Hall & Oates Sue Haulin’ Oats Granola

By Caitlin White / March 5, 2015
Welcome to the age of the lawsuit. While postmodern digital culture allows for intertextuality to be an omnipresent force in our lives, the primary texts for this interplay aren't always happy with it. We already saw Don Henley take legal action over a shirt pun. In that vein, legendary '80s duo Hall & Oate… More »

Art Critics Hate Björk’s MoMa Retrospective

By Tom Breihan / March 5, 2015
Björk isn't a visual artist, but she's conducted her entire public life as if it's a piece of theatrical performative art. So it made sense last year when New York's Museum Of Modern Art announced that it would stage a grand Björk retrospective. That exhibit opened this past week, and as it turns out,… More »

Aphex Twin Is Releasing A Syro Bonus Track On White Label 12″

By Caitlin White / March 5, 2015
After a decade-long hiatus, we've got an avalanche of new music from Aphex Twin. It's been an almost overwhelming return, between last year's SYRO, follow-up EP Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2, the long-lost Caustic Window LP, and that trove of SoundCloud tracks. The latest new music from Richard D. James come… More »

The Very Best, the duo of Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya and Swedish producer Johan Hugo, have a new album called Makes A King coming out next month.

Band To Watch: American Wrestlers + “There’s No One Crying Over Me Either” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / March 5, 2015
Gary McClure's dexterous, lo-fi project American Wrestlers began as an idle way to pass the time. McClure is a music industry veteran who's been making music for 20+ years, but the eight-song self-titled album he thrust out into the universe last fall as a free release on Bandcamp was an act of desperation, not ambition.

Scott Weiland Explains Why Grandaddy Is One Of His Favorite Bands

By Chris DeVille / March 5, 2015
Grandaddy and Stone Temple Pilots were two of my favorite bands circa 2000, and I'm happy to report that they like each other, too. Actually, I can't confirm how Jason Lytle feels about STP, but Scott Weiland apparently is a big fan of Grandaddy. Weiland told Esquire about his 10 favorite bands, and Grandaddy made… More »

Blood Sister – “Ghost Pussy” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Aaron Lindenberg / March 5, 2015
San Francisco post-punkers Blood Sister write wonderfully discordant rock songs that sting and soothe all at once. Their new single, "Ghost Pussy" is a twisted, overdriven episode that threatens to derail itself with each repetition of its crunchy, off-center guitar riff. Instead, it cakes on more and more distortion, letting off only after a final… More »
