The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

If you were expecting to see some spooky songs in this week's 5 Best, you might be a little disappointed. Yes, it's Halloween, but nothing here is particularly Halloweeny. This week did bring the return of the holiday-appropriate Marilyn Manson, and he was nominated, but he didn't make the cut. Da Mafia 6ix, the… More »

Baauer – “One Touch” (Feat. AlunaGeorge & Rae Sremmurd)

Before Baauer hit it big with song-meme "Harlem Shake" sometime back in the Paleozoic era, he was garnering respect as a talented producer on the rise. And now that his moment of profitable ignominy has passed, he can get back to being a buzzworthy young stud producer, only with a bigger budget and a more… More »

Chvrches – “Get Away”

The movie Drive is only three years old, and its soundtrack is magnificent; it's arguably the best thing about the entire movie. But BBC radio host Zane Lowe has taken on the strange, difficult endeavor of improving, or at least competing against, that original soundtrack. Lowe has put together a whole new soundtrack to the… More »

Baauer – “One Touch” (Feat. AlunaGeorge)

Baauer has shared a new collaboration with AlunaGeorge called "One Touch." The song debuted on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show last night. It was picked from a list of unreleased tracks that Baauer posted on his Facebook earlier this week, telling fans that they could choose one and he would release it. You… More »

Run The Jewels’ Meow The Jewels Campaign Enlists Geoff Barrow, Zola Jesus, Baauer, & Boots

One of Run The Jewels' many joke deluxe editions for their upcoming sophomore album is Meow The Jewels, a recreation of the new record using nothing but cat sounds. The asking price for that edition is $40,000 and last month, someone began a Kickstarter to try and raise the money. (All the money… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Riot Rave” (Feat Baauer) Video & “Unicorns”

One of the highlights of A$AP Rocky's Long.Live.A$AP was the Skrillex feature "Wild For The Night," and Rocky's new Gessafelstein collab "In Distress" ain't half bad either. So I was hoping "Riot Rave," Rocky's new video with Baauer, would be another example of prime party-time PMF EDM. Alas, it seems to be a… More »

Artists Against Spotify, Vinyl At Whole Foods, And The Metamorphosis Of The Music Biz In 2013

The music industry may or may not be dying, but it's definitely changing. "Metamorphosis" is probably the right word because some days the music biz seems to have woken up and found itself transformed into repulsive insectine creature without notice. Just because it's new and shiny doesn't mean it ain't ugly. More »

The 10 Dumbest Azealia Banks Beefs Of 2013

There's no better example of unrealized potential than Azealia Banks. It's been over two years since "212" dropped and we're still not sure when (or if) her oft-delayed debut album will ever be released. It's frustrating to see a young artist prioritize petty feuds over making music, and it's especially frustrating because I like Azealia'… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

It's pretty hard to carry on Stereogum business as usual on the day that Amrit Singh, the guy who brought me to the site and one of my favorite people, announces his departure. Like, I'm sure, a lot of readers, I've got complicated feelings here: Happy for Amrit, sorry to see him go, looking… More »

Just Blaze & Baauer – “Higher” Video

Just before the whole "Harlem Shake" thing really popped off, Baauer got together with Just Blaze, one of the greatest rap producers ever, to make "Higher," a hard-as-fuck trap rave track that was all shot through with Jay-Z vocal samples. (Right now, it's tagged as "featuring Jay Z," but Jay doesn't rap on it… More »

Outside Lands 2013 Saturday: Nine Inch Nails, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, & More

Saturday at Outside Lands was a typical second day at festivals. The sets ran smoother, there were less technical problems, and the crowds seemed a little more laid back after the initial day 1 excitement dissipated. The sets today were just as incredible as yesterday, but with a completely different vibe – one of the… More »

Hangout 2013 Sunday: Stevie Wonder, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Best Coast, & More

You don't throw a music festival on the beach and neglect to invite Best Coast. Gulf Shores isn't what Bethany Cosentino had in mind when she named her band, but even she saw the parallels: "This next song, it's about California, but all of the things I talk about in it you guys have here."… More »

AlunaGeorge – “Attracting Flies (Baauer Remix)”

British electronic pop duo AlunaGeorge have a new album on the way, Body Music out July 1st. In advance, here's a version of their song "Attracting Flies" remixed by Baauer. (It's more interesting than any weird Harlem Shake dance meme video, for real.) Stream the remix below. According to AlunaGeorge's Soundcloud, remixes are forthcoming by… More »

Watch The Simpsons’ Harlem Shake Parody

As you might know already, Baauer's song "Harlem Shake" fueled an Internet meme last month, seeing hundreds of thousands of individuals posting YouTube videos of themselves doing random dances set to the song. It's a cultural phenomenon for sure, but as the New York Times pointed out yesterday, the videos are not inspired by… More »

Azealia Banks – “Harlem Shake” Video

Yesterday, we looked into the recent tensions between Azealia Banks and "Harlem Shake" producer Baauer that surfaced as a result of her remix of the song. Baauer had Banks's remix of the song removed from Soundcloud. This morning, she responded by posting her video of the song on Vimeo. "Sick and tired of these… More »

Baauer And Azealia Banks Beef Over “Harlem Shake” Takedown

Azealia Banks and "Harlem Shake" producer Baauer are in a bit of a to-do over Banks's remix of the song. Yesterday she posted her own version on SoundCloud, which Baauer had swiftly removed, prompting her to ask why he was "coccblocking." Baauer's reply -- "cause its not ur song lol" -- set… More »

Azealia Banks – “Harlem Shake”

There's an amazingly insipid video floating around the internet lately: Dorm rooms full of kids going apeshit to Baauer's 2012 dance track "Harlem Shake," doing dances that have nothing to do with the actual Harlem shake dance. (Observe.) So obviously, the time is right for an actual Harlem native, dance-rap queen Azealia Banks, to… More »

Just Blaze & Baauer – “Higher”

Last year, the Brooklyn-based dance producer Baauer built a name for himself with tracks like the blaring dance anthem "Harlem Shake." He's about to head out on tour with the great New York rap producer Just Blaze, who's been trying his own hand at dance tracks lately. And now the two of them have… More »

The Top 30 Electronic Dance Tracks Of 2012

There was no getting away from EDM in 2012. While the three-letter hashtag has certainly caused buzz among radio stations and indie blogosphere alike, it's been a big year for dance on and off of the pop charts. Regional styles like footwork, juke, and Jersey club went through genre-bending booms, electronic trap instrumentals filtered their… More »
