SXSW 2015 has come and gone. As Scott noted over the weekend, it was an altogether less corporate, less celebrity-infused, less insane experience than in recent years, though of course it was still at least a little corporate and celebrity-infused and insane. (We never did make it to the McDonald’s showcase, damn.) As much a… More »

Marching Church – “Hungry For Love” Video

Elias Bender Rønnenfelt, the Iceage frontman with the enviable cheekbone situation, is about to release The World Is Not Enough, a solo album that he recorded under the name Marching Church. Rønnenfelt worked with members of bands like Lower and Choir Of Young Believers on the LP, and we’ve already posted the first single, the… More »

Iceage – “Against The Moon” Video

Danish punks Iceage have already made videos for “The Lord’s Favorite” and “Forever,” two of the songs from their skronky, Americana-haunted new album Plowing Into The Field Of Love. Their new video for “Against The Moon” is a stark, black and white study of weathered faces and damaged bodies. It seems to tell a story… More »

Iceage spent their Halloween night playing a show at San Francisco’s Elbo Room, though they didn’t do anything especially spooky. They’re currently in the midst of a North American tour in support of their new album, Plowing Into The Field Of Love. Our photographer Autumn Andel was there and you can view her pictures above… More »

Q&A: Iceage On Snakes In The Music Business, Violence At Shows, And Plowing Into The Field Of Love

Iceage are currently trekking across the United States (and a bit of Canada) in support of their excellent new album, Plowing Into the Field of Love. The album, the band’s third, shows them moving away from the brutish punk pummel of their first two albums and expanding their sonic palette to include things like mandolins,… More »

Stream Iceage Plowing Into The Field Of Love

Danish post-punk quartet Iceage are set to release their third LP, Plowing Into The Field Of Love, next week. If you’ve listened to any of the singles — “The Lord’s Favorite,” “Forever,” “Glassy Eyed, Dormant, And Veiled,” and “How Many” — you know already that this iteration of Iceage has evolved quite a bit from… More »

Iceage – “Glassy Eyed, Dormant And Veiled”

On their upcoming Plowing Into The Field Of Love, Danish punks Iceage show what happens when they pour all the sneering dull-blade brutality of their previous post-punk/hardcore incarnation into jangly Mekons roots-punk. The results so far have been fascinating, and new single “Glassy Eyed, Dormant And Veiled” continues to challenge our ideas of what Iceage… More »

Iceage – “How Many”

I’ve heard people compare Iceage’s new Plowing The Fields Of Love to the Mekons’ 1985 classic Fear And Whiskey, but when I listen to it, the album I’m reminded of most is the Libertines’ self-titled second record. That resemblance is most apparent in Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s vocals, which share many qualities with those of Pete… More »

Iceage – “Forever” Video + Plowing Into The Field Of Love Details

When the Danish band Iceage dropped the video for their new song “The Lord’s Favorite” earlier this summer, it was clear that the track wasn’t just a one-off. It signaled a big shift, away from clangorous atmospheric postpunk and toward a sort of dark, mythic throb. As it turns out, that was the first taste… More »

Iceage – “The Lord’s Favorite” Video

Danish punk Iceage released their last album You’re Nothing just last year, and today, they’ve already returned with a new song, a slurry and falling-apart rockabilly number called “The Lord’s Favorite.” The track comes with a new video. More than any other Iceage video, this one gets a lot of mileage out of the fact… More »

Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Determining the year’s best albums is, admittedly, a subjective pursuit. But even more than an albums roundup, a list of songs is an intensely personal way to sum up a year in music. It is a process of appreciating the trees in a forest so sprawling it can never be mapped out entirely, celebrating the… More »

The 50 Best Albums Of 2013

Earlier this year, New York Times pop critic Jon Caramanica wrote a piece about pop’s Summer Of Smooth, about how many of this year’s big warm-weather crossover hits were soft and breezy and immaculately produced and comforting pieces of throwbacky, slick pseudo-R&B. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” drove the narrative, but it also encompassed Bruno Mar… More »

Iceage – “Jackie” (Sinead O’Connor Cover) & “To The Comrades” (Bahumutsi Drama Group Cover)

Earlier this year, Iceage released their sophomore LP, You’re Nothing, but will close out 2013 with new material via a covers 7″. The release includes takes on Sinead O’Connor’s sparse, feedback-infused “Jackie” and the South Africa politcos Bahumutsi Drama Group’s “To The Comrades.” The original was only ever released as a privately pressed one-off with… More »

This week, for the 237th time, our country tis of thee will celebrate its Miss Independence. Which means that this week, for the fourth time, our blog will celebrate the arrival of Cruel Summer, our annual heartbreak of a mixtape. Tradition.

Lower – “Another Life”

The excellent Danish punk band Lower are part of the same Copenhagen scene that produced Iceage and Vår (as well as Marching Church and Sexdrome, among others). Based only on the few higher-profile names I’m familiar with, it’s probably as good a scene as any in the world right now. If Iceage is the band… More »

Stream Iceage You’re Nothing

The first two tracks to be released from Iceage’s sophomore album, You’re Nothing — “Coalition” and “Ecstasy” — are also the first two tracks on the album. (However, while “Coalition” was the first single to be released, “Ecstasy” opens the record.) They’re also, in my opinion, the two best songs Iceage have recorded. That’s saying… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: January 2013

By the end of last year, compiling Monthly Mixes became a sad task. Each month I’d scan in sadness, watching our strongest songs presented as straight-to-Soundcloud affairs, our music business continuing its inexorable shift away from the transferrable file, now even in its promotional form. So either this month represents a momentary lapse, or artist… More »
