Meredith Graves – “Took The Ghost To The Movies”

By James Rettig / May 5, 2015 - 2:31 pm
One of my biggest questions going into this year is: What will a Meredith Graves solo album end up sounding like? Of course, we already have some idea -- she already has two full-lengths under her belt, one with Perfect Pussy and one with Shoppers -- but a solo release could end up being a… More »

By Chris DeVille / May 5, 2015 - 2:02 pm
In his latest Rolling Stone interview, Noel Gallagher offered typically entertaining commentary about some of the year's biggest music stories.

This is one of those weeks where there's just an insane array of good music, where it feels like you're shorting seven other albums if you pick a single one and name it the best. This could've gone any number of different ways. Downtown Boys' Full Communism is a furious and urgent and needed skronk-hardcore… More »

Rich Homie Quan continues his Grand Theft Auto: Vice City narrative after a speedboat getaway, bikini clad women, gold, and the pursuit of more money in his video for "Flex," and plenty more where that came from on If You Ever Think I Will Stop Going In Ask Royal Rich.

Stream Vomitface Another Bad Year EP (Stereogum Premiere)

By Aaron Lindenberg / May 5, 2015 - 1:16 pm
We heard from Brooklyn/Jersey City punk trio Vomitface when they released their self-titled debut LP on puke-green vinyl last year, and now they're back with the equally filthy Another Bad Year EP. While they've preserved their head-bludgeoning guitar riffs and sardonic lyricism, these five new songs are tighter and more complicated. The songs are more… More »

Eskimeaux is Gabrielle Smith, a Brooklyn-based singer and songwriter who plays in Frankie Cosmos' band and who is part of an artists' collective called Epoch. Based on the above information, you'd probably expect her songs to be tape-hiss lullabies, but that's a few light years removed from where her sound is. On her new album… More »

By Caitlin White / May 5, 2015 - 12:58 pm
Plenty of people idolize Fetty Wap's exuberant druggy jam "Trap Queen," so why shouldn't it get a remix featuring Quavo of Migos, prolific and jail-bound Gucci Mane, and the ever-controversial Azealia Banks? "Trap Queen" is 18 months old after all, a song that rose from SoundCloud to release by Lyor Cohen's 300 Entertainment and currently… More »

David Kauffman And Eric Caboor – “Life Without Love” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / May 5, 2015 - 12:49 pm
The scenario is very familiar. You walk into a coffee shop to grab a quick cup of joe to power you through the rest of the evening. In the corner, quietly crooning into a close-mic'd guitar is a small town songwriter or two, guitar cases eagerly splayed open for tips. Maybe you stay for a… More »
