Death Grips Announce World Tour

By Chris DeVille / March 24, 2015
After first trolling the world by not showing up when they said they would, Death Grips are now trolling us by showing up when they said they wouldn't. Which is to say that they announced their breakup on a napkin last July, and now, nine months and 18 Stereogum posts later, not… More »

Algiers – “Irony. Utility. Pretext.” Video

By Chris DeVille / March 24, 2015
After "But She Was Not Flying" and "Blood," I didn't expect gospel-electro-noise-punk anomaly Algiers to release something for the club. But the drum-machine rhythm and house melody that drive "Irony. Utility. Pretext." are undeniably dance-floor ready. Admittedly, given the desperation and midnight bleakness coursing through it, the song would work better as chase… More »

Stream Faith Healer Cosmic Troubles

By Caitlin White / March 24, 2015
On the opening track for Faith Healer's debut record Cosmic Troubles, Jessica Jalbert clutches onto the train of "Sweet Jane"'s dress and drags her down into an anti-drug PSA.

And next week, he'll release his full-length Jerk AtMore »

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 24, 2015
Vancouver is a city that boasts one of the highest costs of living in Canada and has more musicians trying to make things work within its boundaries than there is room for.
