By Chris DeVille / April 14, 2015 - 10:08 am
Nai Harvest's evolution has been rapid and rhapsodic. Ben Thompson and Lew Currie started out making mathy emo as university kids on 2013 debut Whatever, streamlined their twiddly American Football riffs into sludgy power chords for 2014's tremendous Hold Open My Head EP, and boldly forged into brightly chiming '90s pop-rock on last year's "Buttercup"… More »

How Brian Wilson Helped Spawn Punk

It was the winter of 1978/'79 in Los Angeles -- that is to say, not much of a winter at all. The Last were holed up in a studio with John Harrison, Hawkwind's founding bassist. The band had just made the jump from self-financing to Bomp! Records, and under Harrison's direction, they were hashing out… More »

Watch The War On Drugs Shimmer Through Two Songs On Kimmel

This is the week in between Coachella weekends, which means a whole lot of great bands are spending the week in Southern California and happy to take late-night bookings. The War On Drugs' sleepy, spacey sunset performance was a highlight of Coachella's first day, and they recreated a bit of it last night on JimmyMore »

Watch 6 Songs From Luna’s First Concert In 10 Years

By Tom Breihan / April 14, 2015 - 8:44 am
The gauzy New York guitar band Luna never seemed to burst with importance, the way Luna frontman Dean Wareham's previous band Galaxie 500 did. But Luna were just a ridiculously good band in ways that never really demanded attention. If you ever saw them live, you witnessed the way they could just sort of melt… More »

Spotify Says Ed Sheeran Puts More People To Sleep Than Any Other Artist

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 13, 2015 - 5:25 pm
As someone who spent an embarrassing amount of time watching old Ed Sheeran videos with a friend the other night, this headline kind of confounded me. I stayed up worrying about the wayward girl in Sheeran's video for "The A-Team," unable to sleep wondering how many pre-pubescent individuals swore off eyeliner for life (among other… More »

E-40 – “California” (Feat. Dam-Funk & Ariel Pink)

By Caitlin White / April 13, 2015 - 4:54 pm
We've heard a couple of great songs already from the Alchemist and Oh No's Welcome To Los Santos: "Play It Cool," Gangrene's collab with Earl Sweatshirt and Samuel T. Herring, and "Lock & Load," Killer Mike and MNDR's glitter-and-tar savagery. (We selected the latter as one of the week's five best songs.) Now, the entire… More »
