Thurston Moore’s first musical project after the end of Sonic Youth was Chelsea Light Moving, an experimental rock supergroup that released one self-titled album in early 2013. Ever since that album cycle wound down, though, Moore has mostly been releasing music under his own name. There’s been one small release with Caught On Tape, hi… More »

The Virginia sing-rapper D.R.A.M. released his #1Epic EP way the hell back in March, and his song “Cha Cha” has blown the hell up since then. Just last weekend, Drake used the track as the basis for his “Hotline Bling.” And D.R.A.M. also had a memorable appearance on Surf, the new album from Donnie Trumpet… More »

CeeLo Green has a new album coming this fall called Heart Blanche; it was preceded by initial single “Robin Williams.” As Green begins to ramp up his press in advance of the album’s release, he continues to face questions about pleading no contest to the felony of drugging a woman against her knowledge, and hi… More »


Kevin Gates – “Tomorrow”

By Tom Breihan / August 3, 2015 - 1:58 pm

When he wants to be, Baton Rouge’s Kevin Gates is one of the best rappers in the world. And while Gates’ new single “Tomorrow” isn’t necessarily his best, we do hear flashes of that in there. It’s a hard-as-fuck street song that’s delivered entirely in a sweetly bluesy singsong, and that’s not exactly the sort… More »

I’ve spent the past few weeks obsessively watching RuPaul’s Drag Race for the first time ever because I’m an idiot who had never gotten into it before, and it only makes me appreciate PWR BTTM’s spin on drag even more. They take their cues from similar genderfuck queens — like contestants Alaska Thunderfuck 5000, Milk,… More »

LUWUM – “The Band” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Grace Birnstengel / August 3, 2015 - 12:50 pm

Jesse Miller of Seattle operates under the name “LUWUM,” a name given to him when he was born in Uganda while his parents were missionaries. Janani Luwum was the archbishop of Uganda in the ’70s who was killed for speaking out against Idi Amin’s tyrannic regime. Although his moniker is serious, Miller’s music isn’t a… More »


Blacklisters – “I Knock Myself Out”

Leeds noise-punkers Blacklisters make an impressively disgusting racket, one that recalls the fuzz-drenched ’90s glory days of Amphetamine Reptile Records. The band’s sophomore album Adult looms like a hammer over our heads, and we’ve already posted first single “Cash Cow.” Now Noisey has posted “I Knock Myself Out,” the follow-up, and it’s a two-minute murk-scream… More »
