Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines). Today Coliseum shared a sparse but dramatic performance video for the album's lead single "We Are The Water." Watch the Max Moore-directed clip and check… More »

Young Empires – “So Cruel”

By Tom Breihan / February 24, 2015
On their new single "So Cruel," the Toronto synthpoppers Young Empires go into slinky dance-music overdrive, sounding something like Passion Pit might if they spent some serious time in Berlin's finer house-music establishments. It's a beautifully blippy and streamlined song, and I would bet money on it appearing in some sort of television commercial withi… More »

POP ETC – “Running In Circles” Video

By Tom Breihan / February 24, 2015
"Running In Circles," the glistening new single from POP ETC, is probably the best thing the group has done since the long-ago era when they were still calling themselves the Morning Benders. The song is pure sleek, yearning '80s synth-rock revivalism, and the video builds on that aesthetic. It plunges the group into a… More »

Yeesh – “Different Light” (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / February 24, 2015
Chicago three-piece Yeesh specialize in needling, fussy, and elaborately constructed bits of math-punk. "Different Light," the second single from their forthcoming sophomore effort No Problem, builds over six minutes with a catchy revolving door rhythm via some calculated, dynamic guitar work. "But in a different light, I see it was my fault all along,"… More »

By Caitlin White / February 24, 2015
Each song on Chilly Gonzales' new album Chambers is dedicated to a different person, and the second song he's shared, "Sweet Burden," is an ode to French composer Gabriel Faure. Gonzales calls it the album's first "bona fide tear jerker" and notes "we all have our burdens to bear, and maybe only music ca… More »

Watch Mark Kozelek Fill In On Guitar For His Broken-Handed Friend Ben Gibbard

By Chris DeVille / February 24, 2015
One of the many showstoppers on Sun Kil Moon's Benji was album closer "Ben's My Friend," a song about Mark Kozelek having something of a nervous breakdown while watching longtime pal Ben Gibbard perform for a massive audience on the Postal Service reunion tour. Kozelek and Gibbard have since published a pair of… More »

Back in 2012, the shadowy, majestic Canadian post-rock collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor released Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!, their first album after a decade-plus hiatus, and it was just as thundering and grand and powerful as everything else they've ever done. The band won Canada's Polaris Music Prize for the album, and they… More »

Weed – “Stay In The Summer” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / February 24, 2015
Some people get really hung up on band names. If a name is too snarky, the band risks being labeled as some kind of liberal arts school reject, if it's too long they're emo, if it's too self-serious then they're definitely over-compensating for something. Naming your band "Weed" is bound to be a turn-off for… More »
