Lewis Gives His First Interview, Hints At New Music

By Caitlin White / July 1, 2015 - 10:31 am

After esteemed reissues hub Light In The Attic released the mysterious 1983 album L’Amour last year, Lewis became something of a recurring figure throughout the year. The unlikely, angelic con-artist stockbroker — who was perhaps named Randall Wulff and perhaps fled to Canada — seemed more intriguing than any current day musician. More »

Kevin Parker was still working when the taxi rolled up to his home. The sun was setting over Perth on one of those early March evenings when a Southern Hemisphere summer is inching into fall.

Status Ain’t Hood: Meek Mill Is Extremely Good At Rapping

By Tom Breihan / July 1, 2015 - 10:01 am

Rap music is too vast and overwhelming a thing for any one song to encapsulate all the multitudes it contains. But if I had to pick one song that best encapsulates what circa-now rap music can be, that song would probably be “Dreams And Nightmares (Intro),” the breathless track that opened Meek Mill’s 2012 album… More »

Miguel’s sex-delirious new album Wildheart is out in the world now, and he’s in full promotional carpet-bombing mode. The night before last, he sang his great single “Coffeeon Kimmel.

Trust Fund – “Dreams” (Feat. Alanna McArdle)

By James Rettig / July 1, 2015 - 9:33 am

We were big fans of Trust Fund’s debut album, No One’s Coming For Us, and the Bristol band has just put out a new single called “Dreams” that builds on the same poppy heartbreak of that record. It features vocals from Alanna McArdle in her first appearance since she left Joanna Gruesome earlier this month,… More »


Oscar – “Beautiful Words” Video

By James Rettig / July 1, 2015 - 8:48 am

The title track to Oscar Scheller’s debut Beautiful Words EP is an oddly hopeful thing. Despite the levity of the chorus, it still feels like its dragging around the weight of the world. The video for the song doesn’t have the same kind of narrative drive attached to it as his affecting “Daffodil Days” video,… More »

Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek has been the focus of a whole lot of controversy lately; his penchant for being a complete dick onstage has gotten him into some trouble. And he might be courting more of it. During a moment when many other artists are refusing to perform in Israel because of the country’… More »

Prince has released another one-off track in the same vein as “WHAT IF” and “Baltimore” from earlier this year. This one’s called “HARDROCKLOVER,” and sees the star throwing down the gauntlet along genre lines: “Ain’t no rapper trying to be a singer/ Come on, make a move,” and right after shouting out Babyface: “R&B ain’t… More »
