Sky Ferreira Pushes Back Launch Of New Album

By Tom Breihan / July 27, 2015 - 12:56 pm

A new Sky Ferreira album would be very welcome right now, but we’re going to have to wait for a bit. Ferreira has been working on Masochism, the follow-up to her generally incredible 2013 full-length debut Night Time, My Time, for a while now, and she’d promised the release of new single “Guardian” this summer.

Skylar Spence – “Affairs”

By Chris DeVille / July 27, 2015 - 12:28 pm

Skylar Spence’s Prom King is shaping up swimmingly. The erstwhile SAINT PEPSI impressed us with his summer jam of a lead single “Can’t You See,” and its follow-up reminds us that his expertise extends beyond neon dance-party music. “Affairs” is a misty chillwave/synthpop breakup lament marked by echo-laden vocals and the melancholy refrain, “That’s the… More »


Meek Mill – “All Eyes On You” (Feat. Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown) Video

Meek Mill’s second studio album Dreams Worth More Than Money has been a hell of a comeback so far. After getting out of jail, sparking up a romance with hip-hop’s reigning queen Nicki Minaj, and going straight for Drake’s jugular, Mill seems to be on a mission to assert his dominance. The video for hi… More »


Jamie Lidell – “Pink Light”

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / July 27, 2015 - 12:19 pm

Jamie Lidell doesn’t subscribe to any particular genre leaning, and his discography amasses new influences without straying from his origins as a straight-up dance producer. “Pink Light” is a slow-burner, and its inaugural moments sound not totally unlike the fateful slow dance before the closing credits of an ’80s film. Astral synths abound, gossamer sheet… More »


Stream Gunplay Living Legend

A couple of miracles today: Gunplay, the bloodthirsty Miami rapper who has been wrecking shit on mixtapes for years, is finally getting to release a major-label album. That’s the first miracle. The second miracle is that it fucking rules, presenting the furious mixtape Gunplay without diluting it for mainstream acceptance. This is a bone-hard, uncompromising… More »


Palehound – “Cushioned Caging”

By James Rettig / July 27, 2015 - 12:05 pm

Ellen Kempner takes us to church on the first verse of “Cushioned Caging,” the latest track from Palehound’s upcoming Dry Food, but the confidence she has to perform and “walk out smiling” doesn’t carry through to the rest of her life. The title of the song is evocative of padded solitary confinement, where growth isn’t… More »


Patty Griffin – “Rider Of Days”

For all the bemoaning that goes on about the state of the music industry, Patty Griffin’s story suggests the shakeup doesn’t stop those who are truly determined. After a brief marriage ended in divorce, Griffin began playing coffee shops in the early ’90s and was quickly scouted by the now-defunct label A&M Records. Though she… More »


Listen To Haim & Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry In Conversation For Talkhouse

By Tom Breihan / July 27, 2015 - 11:53 am

The three HAIM sisters were the big backstage celebrities at the Pitchfork Music Festival the weekend before last. (There’s one every year; Julia Stiles is still probably the best one.) HAIM were in Chicago to open for Taylor Swift at Soldier Field, and they spent pretty much all of Friday at the festival, watching Tobia… More »


Have We Reached Peak Vinyl?

Stewart Anderson has had enough. The frontman for noise-pop veterans Boyracer and head of likeminded label 555 Recordings has been releasing music on vinyl since 1991. But the well-documented manufacturing delays that have gone hand in hand with the format’s unlikely resurgence have finally pushed the artist/entrepreneur to the point of wanting to break it… More »


Galantis – “Peanut Butter Jelly” Video

The members of Swedish dance-pop duo Galantis are partially responsible for two of the most quotable pop songs in recent memory — Britney Spears’ “Toxic” and Icona Pop’s “I Love It” — and that’s a fact not easily ignored when you listen to their recent single “Peanut Butter Jelly.” The song floats atop a throwback… More »
