Colleen Green – “TV” Video

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / February 23, 2015
When I interviewed Colleen Green about her new album I Want To Grow Up, we talked about how most of the songs are dark first-person narratives wrapped in the kind of bubblegum coating that makes them an effortless first listen.

Q&A: Noel Gallagher On Kanye, Beck, Beyoncé, Moz, Jack White, Black Keys, & More

By Ryan Leas / February 23, 2015
Back when I was first becoming an obsessive music fan, Oasis were big for me. I loved everything: the classic albums, of course, but also the mid-period stuff most people dismiss.

"No Room In Frame" is the opening track on Death Cab For Cutie's new Kintsugi, and now it's the second single following "Black Sun." As an opener, "No Room In Frame" does a fine job setting the tone in terms of both sonic experimentation (all these beats beats beats beats beats beats) and… More »

Carnage – “I Like Tuh” (Feat. ILoveMakonnen)

By Caitlin White / February 23, 2015
ILoveMakonnen and Carnage may seem like an unlikely pairing at first, but one listen to the hook on "I Love Tuh" proves Makonnen warbles just as well over EDM and trap beats as he does over twisted digital gurgles from Sonny Digital or Metro Boomin. The Atlanta rapper turns the mindless phrase "I like tuh/… More »

Stream of Montreal Aureate Gloom

By James Rettig / February 23, 2015
It's easy to take Kevin Barnes for granted. Over thirteen full-lengths and just about as many changes in style, of Montreal have refused to sit still for almost two decades.
