Earlier this month, dance music greats the Chemical Brothers released the collab-heavy Born In The Echoes, their first new album in a few years. The album’s deluxe edition included a new track called “Wo Ha,” a slow-percolating instrumental that showed this group can do a whole lot even in simmer mode. As Pitchfork points out,… More »

PARTYNEXTDOOR – “Kehlani’s Freestyle”

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / July 30, 2015 - 12:17 pm

PARTYNEXTDOOR just released a new single titled “Kehlani’s Freestyle,” that, despite its name, doesn’t boast a feature from Oakland’s rising R&B singer. The two are rumored to be dating, and this is the second song by PARTYNEXTDOOR to more-than-hint that those rumors are true. “Girl From Oakland” came out late last year, and this new… More »

DJ Mustard – “Why’d You Call?” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Makonnen)

By Caitlin White / July 30, 2015 - 12:16 pm

Some booty calls are welcome things, the easy, mindless way to hook up with someone you don’t really care about in any deep way. Other late night calls, though, come with their own emotional baggage. Over a DJ Mustard beat, Ty Dolla $ign and Makonnen get bitter and emotional about the latter, the kind of… More »

Just two days ago, Black Market bro Doug Moore and I were chatting about Krallice — he’d seen them at Brooklyn’s Acheron a night earlier, where they’d played some new songs. Said Doug: “The new Krallice material is fucking awesome and real different from their older stuff…they floored me.” I totally believe it. Krallice are… More »

Download Tink Winter’s Diary 3

By Caitlin White / July 30, 2015 - 11:49 am

Tink is one of the most promising musicians out of Chicago right now and has been known locally for years. At the top of 2014, her Winter’s Diary 2 gained considerable attention for the singer and rapper, and Timbaland soon got involved in her career. That’s where things kind of went sour.

The Doors Albums From Worst To Best

By Ryan Leas / July 30, 2015 - 11:45 am

The Doors are part of a very specific category of classic-rock artists: the gateway artists. The bands that — assuming you weren’t around in the ’60s — are amongst the first names you explore when you start digging into pop music’s past. Though keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger, and drummer John Densmore were all… More »

Slime – “Hotdog” Video

By James Rettig / July 30, 2015 - 11:41 am

The video for Slime’s smooth new track “Hotdog” takes a more literal interpretation than I expected, in so much as it follows around a man dressed in a giant an oddly realistic hot dog suit. It only gets weirder from there, as director Daniel Brereton follows the hot dog man as he wanders pensively around… More »

It’s been six years since the last HEALTH album, the 2009 sophomore effort Get Color. And while they’ve kept busy doing things like video-game soundtracks, their new album Death Magic sounds like the work of a band that’s spent its time away honing a whole new sound. Death Magic takes the astral noise-rock of the… More »

Hazel English – “It’s Not Real”

By Misha Sesar / July 30, 2015 - 11:05 am

Oakland-based Aussie native Hazel English burst onto the scene with a sun-soaked summer debut, “Never Going Home” that quickly caught listeners’ attention. English’s second single, “It’s Not Real,” continues with a welcome breath and sunkissed tone. The track evokes a dreamier, female-fronted version of Beach Fossils with its soft, hazy lo-fi glow and gently jangly… More »
