Porcelain Raft – “Half Awake”

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 11:45 am

Mauro Remiddi’s hazy synthpop is only half the story when it comes to his new Porcelain Raft EP Half Awake. Like all music born on the internet, it will be released digitally, but Remiddi is also releasing it as a cassette with custom linoleum prints he made himself as the artwork. The EP is coming… More »

Meek Mill – “Monster” Video

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 11:41 am

Meek Mill’s new single “Monster” was already a total banger, but it just got even better. Director Spike Jordan‘s new “Monster” video goes all the way period-piece, with Meek and his friends staging an ’80s-style “Welcome Home Meek Mill” party at a roller rink. The time-specific fashion is absolutely on point, and you can just… More »

Night Beds – “Tide Teeth” Video

By James Rettig / May 20, 2015 - 11:12 am

Turns out last month’s Night Beds’ single “Tide Teeth” was the precursor to a new full-length. That new song was a pretty big change in sound from his 2013 debut, Country Sleep, trading in woodsy folk for slippery late-night-drive R&B, and the new album seems like it will be more of the same: Winston Yelle… More »

Triathalon – “Usher Surfing” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / May 20, 2015 - 11:08 am

Last year, Savannah four-piece Triathalon put out their sunny, charming full-length debut Lo-Tide. Since then, they’ve been on tour, and are currently putting the finishing touches on their followup, but they’re looking back for now with a new video for Lo-Tide highlight “Usher Surfing.” The video is a fuzzy, shimmering mirage — pools of blue… More »

Alex Winston – “Careless” Video

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 10:49 am

Alex Winston’s best single was “Sister Wife” off a 2011 EP of the same name. It’s what drew me into the New York-via-Detroit singer’s world, a weirdly catchy pop song about incest that was accompanied by this equally bizarre video. Winston manipulates her voice from bratty bubblegum to dramatic diva in one fell swoop, a… More »

The Mountain Goats – “The Legend Of Chavo Guerrero” Video (Feat. Rob Corddry & Chavo Guerrero)

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 10:48 am

Earlier this year, when the Mountain Goats were getting ready to release their great wrestling-themed album Beat The Champ, I took frontman John Darnielle to his first pro wrestling show in 35 years. He didn’t want me to put any details in the story, but he was getting ready to get his hair cut into… More »

Foo Fighters Are David Letterman’s Last Musical Guest

By Chris DeVille / May 20, 2015 - 10:34 am

Foo Fighters are David Letterman’s favorite band, so they’ll serve as the final guest when the legendary late-night host’s Late Show tenure ends tonight. Rolling Stone reported the news, though Letterman’s reps declined to comment — tonight’s guest list is supposed to be a surprise. You might recall that the Foos staged a weeklong LettermanMore »

Mourn – “Gertrudis, Get Through This!”

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 10:24 am

Mourn, a band of teenage Barcelona punks, released a really great self-titled debut album earlier this year. And today, they’re following it up with a new three-song 7″ called Gertrudis. The first of those three songs is a splintered sprint of a thing called “Gertrudis, Get Through This!,” and it’s another sign that these kid… More »

Yes Albums From Worst To Best

By Phil Freeman / May 20, 2015 - 10:21 am

Yes are one of the flagship acts of progressive rock. They’re also one of rock’s weirdest bands. Their best music is intense and aggressive, incorporating influences from jazz, folk, and country, but blending them with wild synthesizer explorations, crazed art-boogie guitar shredding, bass louder than most metal bands’, crushingly complex drumming, and Jon Anderson’s unique,… More »
