FIDLAR – “If It Makes You Happy” (Sheryl Crow Cover)

AKA Fuck It Dog, Life's A Radically abrasive Sheryl Crow cover. FIDLAR have recorded their own version of Crow's 1996 single "If It Makes You Happy," complete with smooth, easy-listening verses and comically, violently loud choruses. It's set to footage of the original video, which you can watch below for your enjoyment and edification. More »

FIDLAR – “Whatever (Folk Song In C)” (Elliott Smith Cover)

It's fitting that while so many artists spent last Monday playing covers and sharing memories of Elliott Smith, the ever surly punk band FIDLAR show up a week late with their own tribute. Released via Tumblr with the simple message "WHOOPS totally forgot to post this... RIP Elliot Smith :_(" this isn't… More »

Photos: Musicfest NW 2013

This past weekend Portland held Musicfest NW 2013, which had a pretty sweet line-up. Many of the bands playing have been doing incredible things on the festival circuit this summer and our photographer Colin McLaughlin captured a great deal of them. Above are his photos of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Neko Case, Earth,… More »

FIDLAR – “Red Right Hand” (Nick Cave Cover)

One of the best songs you could ever find by Nick Cave is his cover of "Knoxville Girl," made famous originally by country greats the Louvin Brothers. He took their sadly sung murder-ballad and made it something fierce and terrifying in a way that the original only hinted at. Well in that tradition,… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

For someone who consistently trumpets his own taste and ably namechecks filmmakers whenever possible, Kanye West sure has a dubious history with music videos. He got all pissy when an early version of his "Black Skinhead" video leaked because viewers weren't getting the full experience, but then the full experience turned out to be… More »

FIDLAR – “Cocaine” Video (Feat. Nick Offerman) (NSFW)

Nick Offerman was already an internet hero because of his amazing work as Ron Swanson on Parks & Recreation, but once everyone gets a load of this video, he might become something like an internet god. In the music video for FIDLAR's California punk rager "Cocaine," we see a destitute Offerman, drunk on Mickey's, just… More »

Watch DIIV, Sky Ferreira, Trash Talk, Charli XCX In A Myspace Commercial

The Justin Timberlake-co-owned new Myspace apparently launched today, despite the fact that registration has already been opened to the public and the editorial has been delivering a lot of content. For today's official opening ceremony, the site has released two commercials directed by photographer Ryan McGinley. The ads feature a ton of musicians partying, like… More »

FIDLAR – “Max Can’t Surf II: The Zuk Trip” (Music Video)

FIDLAR seems to be gaining a reputation for awesome videos. After reappropriating Creedence Clearwater Revival footage for "Gimme Something," they now return with a semi-sequel (it's still the same song) of the music video for "Max Can't Surf." Dubbed "Max Can't Surf II: The Zuk Trip," you might roll your eyes at the very… More »

Next week, the scrappy, knotty, fired-up California punk-rockers FIDLAR drop their self-titled debut album. In this space, we've posted their blitzkrieg hookfests "Cheap Beer," "White On White," and "Gimme Something," and the rest of the short album is pretty much like that: Incredibly fast straight-ahead bangers, delivered with a hedonistic abandon that… More »

Fidlar – “Suburban Home” (Feat. Brian Rodriguez) (Descendents Cover)

To celebrate its 50th issue, as well as the 50th birthday of Descendents frontman Milo Aukerman, the music magazine Filter is releasing a free-download Descendents tribute comp called, logically enough, Filter Presents: Songs Of The Descendents. The comp has people like YACHT, Mike Watt, TEEN, the Babies, and Band Of Horses frontman Ben Bridwell taking… More »

FIDLAR – “Gimme Something” Video

Hedonistic L.A. punks FIDLAR's video for their strummy, catchy-as-fuck number "Gimme Something" doesn't feature FIDLAR at all. Instead, it appears to be made up entirely of ancient footage from a Creedence Clearwater Revival show, manipulated so that it looks like Creedence are playing "Gimme Something." Watch it below.

FIDLAR – “Gimme Something”

Los Angeles punk rockers FIDLAR have given us a steady supply of kickass songs in the last couple of months: "Cheap Beer," "White On White," "AWWWKWAARRRDDD." Now here's another one from their forthcoming self-titled album: A strummy, beery, vaguely Stones-esque song called "Gimme Something." Stream it at Rolling Stone. FIDLAR's self-titled… More »

FIDLAR – “Cheap Beer” (Video)

"Cheap Beer," the recent internet-hit from L.A. punk rockers FIDLAR, is arguably the best fuck-shit-up anthem we've heard since Waka Flocka Flame's "Hard In Da Paint." And in its new video, from director Ryan Baxley, a marauding biker exacts righteous revenge on anyone with bourgie taste in alcoholic beverages. Watch it and download… More »

L.A. garage rockers/Stereogum40 nominees FIDLAR will release their self-titled debut in January, a release from which we've already heard "Cheap Beer" and "White On White." Over the weekend, the band posted a laid-back, jangling duet with Kate Nash called "AWWWKWAARRRDDD," a non-album cut. Hear it at their Tumblr. More »

FIDLAR – “White On White”

Here's another cut from L.A. garage rockers (and Stereogum40 nominee) FIDLAR's forthcoming debut LP, a hard-charging burst of energy called "White On White." Previously we heard the awesome "Cheap Beer." Hear "White On White" below and scope the newly-announced tracklist while you're there. More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: September 2012

Fall has fallen, as they say. As a result this month's mix of ten tracks delivered right on time for September's grand finale has all the classic ingredients of a prosperous autumn: rap, punk, post-punk, R&B, and a Paul Westerberg song. They appear here generally in that order, diligently sequenced to include Weekend Money +… More »
