Check Out The Custom Foo Fighters T-Shirt David Letterman Earned For 33 Years On Late Night TV

By Chris DeVille / May 21, 2015 - 5:43 pm

David Letterman’s Late Show ended with a career-spanning montage soundtracked by final musical guest Foo Fighters performing “Everlong,” one of Letterman’s favorite songs. E! reports that Letterman showed up to the wrap party afterwards rocking a custom Foo Fighters T under his blazer, which seems like a very sweet gift. You can see it above… More »

Tidal’s Artist Bios Are Unforgiving, But So Are iTunes’

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 5:36 pm

Earlier today someone tweeted a Reddit link into my timeline that seized upon the idea that Tidal bios were shady. Perusing the few they’d collected (that focus specifically on female pop stars) I quickly realized they weren’t shady at all, but merely factual about the artists’ failings. More »

Prinzhorn Dance School – “Reign (Shit Robot Remix)”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 5:04 pm

Prinzhorn Dance School, the terse UK postpunk duo, and Shit Robot, the playful New York house producer, are both longtime fixtures of the DFA label. But the two acts have basically nothing in common musically besides a love of elemental rhythm. So it’s cool to hear them come together, with Shit Robot remixing Prinzhorn Dance… More »

Madeon Accuses Sony Music Of “Holding Artists Hostage” By Removing Their Music From SoundCloud

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 4:40 pm

SoundCloud might be a great streaming platform for most of the world, but if you’re one of the people in charge of making sure money changes hands with the advent of this new technology, you’re probably not a fan. Earlier this month, Sony started taking down the SoundCloud streams of its major artists, and source… More »

Ghostface Killah Sometimes Mistakes Action Bronson’s Voice For His Own

By Chris DeVille / May 21, 2015 - 4:11 pm

Action Bronson sounds a lot like Ghostface Killah. The comparison used to come up in just about every Bronson review, in part because the resemblance is so strong that some listeners have occasionally confused the two NYC rappers. Turns out one of those confused parties is Ghostface himself. Pitchfork points to a Vlad TV interview… More »

Juicy J – “Already” (Feat. Rae Sremmurd) Video

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 4:05 pm

The kids in Rae Sremmurd weren’t born when Juicy J started his indestructible career, but somehow it makes perfect sense to hear them on a song together in 2015. Rae Sremmurd guest on “Already,” an ode to being faded and horny from Juicy’s solid Blue Dream & Lean 2 mixtape. And in the video, the… More »

Towkio – “Reflection” Video

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 3:38 pm

Towkio is the latest member of Chicago’s SaveMoney crew to pop off. His new mixtape .Wav Theory is a turbulent mix of cascading, joyful tracks and tense downers. “Reflection” is one of the latter, as I noted when the song itself dropped, and now it’s gotten a video to further explore all that sadness. Directed… More »

Hit-Boy – “Go All Night” (Feat. Travi$ Scott)

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 3:35 pm

Hit-Boy is a production mastermind capable of turning out linear stutter-stunners that always make the rapper ensconced in them sound incredible. Think of “Backseat Freestyle,” “Clique” or “Trophies” — the guy makes beats for rappers to boast over, as if they draw their power from the sound itself. I only recently shook off my post-OwlMore »

J Fernandez – “Between The Channels”

By Caitlin White / May 21, 2015 - 3:30 pm

Chicago bedroom-pop experimentalist J Fernandez is readying his debut album Many Levels Of Laughter, the follow-up to his excellent Memorize Now EP from 2014. We’ve already heard the MIDI-ridden soother “Read My Mind” and today Fernandez has shared a “Between The Channels,” a mumbly, jangling track that occasionally includes bits of a warm, stunning string… More »

Institute – “Cheerlessness”

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 2:57 pm

The members of the band Institute come from the frothing, feral Austin, Texas punk scene; various people in the band also play in groups like Glue, Back To Black, and Wiccans. But on their own, Institute make a nervy, irradiated sort of garage-psych. There’s some 13th Floor Elevators in their sound, and some Cramps, too. More »
