Stereogum Presents… OKX: A Tribute To OK Computer

For this #tbt chapter of Radiohead Week, we’re reissuing (ha) our original track-for-track tribute to OK Computer. Stereogum’s free, downloadable compilation was released in July 2007 on the 10th anniversary of Radiohead’s classic album, and was the first in a series of tribute albums we’ve produced over the years. (You can check out our tribute… More »

New Indie Rock Christmas MP3s For 2009

Even though there’s something sacred about time-honored traditions, there’s only so many years you and your beloveds can sit beside the Christmas tree and listen to Sufjan or “Last Christmas” or the same old yuletide indie rock. It’s time we spruced up our collective Xmas indie rock playlist with some newness! Even if Christmas isn’tMore »

New Slaraffenland – “Open Your Eyes” (Stereogum Premiere)

Since getting started in 2002, the Danish quintet Slaraffenland have impressively honed their pop. You heard a sample of it via the forthcoming We’re on Your Side‘s layered lead track “Meet And Greet.” They take it to an even subtler place on “Open Your Eyes.” Lyrically you’re told to open your peepers like “like a… More »

New Slaraffenland – “Meet And Greet”

It’s that time in the cycle where all the Class of ’06 BTWs start making noise again. Yesterday the Twilight Sad dropped another sliver from their forthcoming sophomore full-length, today it’s their classmates (and fellow OKX alum) Slaraffenland introducing their next set with the appropriately billed “Meet And Greet.” The Danish melodramatists — recent recipient… More »

New Slaraffenland – “I’m A Machine”

Here’s some murky, submerged pop from Copenhagen-based BTW Slaraffenland. It’s an interestingly underwater track from the quintet — the horns and breezy melody tug it from the undertow, letting it subtly hook you. “I’m A Machine” is the lead track from the band’s forthcoming five-song Sunshine EP — which also includes their OKX track, “Paranoid… More »

SXSW: Wednesday Featured Showcases

You don’t need us to tell you that if you want to see R.E.M. tonight you should have started lining up at Stubb’s two days ago. Also you know how big these SXSW crowds are getting every year. The best bet for the sake of your legs — and for the sake of not standing… More »

Stereogum Presents… OKX: A Tribute To OK Computer

There’s no way Pablo Honey or even The Bends could have prepared us for OK Computer. This isn’t a new thought, but it is worth mentioning that in just over four years Radiohead graduated from “Creep” to visionary status. It’s startling, too, realizing OK Computer was released a decade ago: June 16, 1997 in Europe… More »

New Slaraffenland – “Dust (Me As A Monster)”

After a rouse about SXSW, band to watch Slaraffenland took a brief respite to their native Denmark, from where they dispatch this non-album track for your enjoyment. Of course, the excellent album from which this track doesn’t appear isn’t even out yet on these shores, so really it’s just another excuse for us to talk… More »

SXSW: The Twilight Sad/Rob Crow/Slaraffenland @ Mohawk

Seems like it’s getting a little more crowded by the minute down here, so picking a venue with a solid bill top to bottom is helpful, if not advisable. The other night, Mohawk played host to Two Bands To Watch and a Pinback front man, so our choice was clear. This was the first time… More »

Band To Watch: Slaraffenland

This could be the first you’re hearing of Denmark’s Slaraffenland. Or maybe you’ve been hip to their experimental art-rock surges since their rare NYC appearances over the past two years. Regardless, the band is finally ready to release a full-length States side — their first song collection since a self-released EP in ’05 — and… More »
