Chelsea Wolfe – “The Waves Have Come” Video

In February, Chelsea Wolfe teased an hourlong film called Lone with a clip for the song "Feral Love" off her 2013 album Pain Is Beauty. The film is directed by Mark Pellington, who is also responsible for Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" video and the movies Arlington Road and The Mothman Prophecies. Now, Wolfe has shared… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

It's been a slow-ish week in terms of new songs, and it seems like that will continue to be the case till SXSW is behind us. Yesterday on Twitter, Tom noted that March 11 is pretty short on viable Album Of The Week candidates, and he's right: Based on the actual records scheduledMore »

King Dude & Chelsea Wolfe – “Be Free”

Chelsea Wolfe and King Dude both make gothic folk music, so it felt natural when they paired up for the Sing Songs Together project last year. Soon they'll put out another single and you can hear one of those tracks right now. "Be Free" finds them playing to their strengths and creating something that's a… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

For whatever reason, this is the week that many of the old music-video-director gods awakened to walk the earth again. Their names, chanted aloud, inspire nothing but fear in the hearts of the music-video directors of today: Gondry! Romanek! Pellington! Those younger directors, the ones used to working on YouTube budgets, hoped and prayed that… More »

Chelsea Wolfe – “Feral Love” Video (NSFW) (Dir. Mark Pellington)

Chelsea Wolfe is going to be in the movies. The dark-pop singer-songwriter has teamed up with the director Mark Pellington, who did Pearl Jam's iconic "Jeremy" clip and the pretty-great thriller Arlington Road, for an hour-long film called Lone.

Russian Circles – “Memorial” (Feat. Chelsea Wolfe)

Chicago trio Russian Circles generally work somewhere on the line between metal and post-rock, generating slow moving, but towering instrumentals like on the recently released "Deficit." It's rare for them to ever work with vocals, but they've just debuted a song from their new album Memorial featuring the wonderful Chelsea Wolfe. "Memorial" still sound… More »

Chelsea Wolfe – “The Waves Have Come”

Chelsea Wolfe will release her fourth album in four years Pain Is Beauty this September and here is another look at its calming darkness, "The Waves Have Come." I was going to make a joke here about how if she continues to be this prolific, she should try her hand at her own 777… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: July 2013

I don't want to bum anybody out, but summer's almost over. With an emphasis on almost, meaning anything can still happen (aside from reclaiming that unbridled feeling of summer's start and infinite possibilities; we're definitely in the zone of finitude, with all its attendant reminders of our own corporeal mortality, now)! LIVE IT UP! Really. More »

Chelsea Wolfe – “We Hit A Wall”

The prolific Chelsea Wolfe has another album of dark, obsessive bedroom music all ready to go this fall. It's called Pain Is Beauty, and we posted first single "The Warden." Now she's shared another track called "We Hit A Wall," and it's maybe the most distinctly goth-rock thing we've yet heard from her. The… More »

Chelsea Wolfe – “The Warden”

Chelsea Wolfe is now on pace to release her fourth album of witchy, overwhelmed-by-darkness bedroom-pop in four years. The descriptively titled Pain Is Beauty, her next one, arrives this fall, and it follows 2010's The Grime And The Glow, 2011's Apokalypsis, and 2012's Unknown Rooms: A Collection Of Acoustic Songs. And the new album's first… More »

Swans, Chelsea Wolfe @ Warsaw, Brooklyn 6/13/13

Michael Gira prefers to call the version of Swans that emerged in early 2010 a reconstitution rather than a reunion. It is easy to see why the word choice matters to him; the term "reunion" comes with a great deal of historical baggage that simply does not apply to the band's current iteration. They have… More »

Chelsea Wolfe – “Flatlands (Lust For Youth Remix)”

The original version of Chelsea Wolfe's "Flatlands" (from her terrific acoustic collection Unknown Rooms) is a somber, mournful dirge full of swelling violins and built on Wolfe's gorgeous, expressive voice. As "re-imagined" by Swedish electro-goth act Lust For Youth, the song is transformed into ... an electro-goth track. LFY almost completely changes the structure… More »

Chelsea Wolfe – “Appalachia”

Gothed-out lo-fi singer-songwriter Chelsea Wolfe releases her stripped-down new album Unknown Rooms: A Collection Of Acoustic Songs next month, and we've already posted the track "The Way We Used To." Wolfe's new song "Appalachia," as the title implies, is her own take on depressive trad-folk. Hear it below. More »

Ascendant dark-popper Chelsea Wolfe has just announced plans to follow last year's album Apokalypsis with a new LP called Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs, due this fall. The first song we've heard from the new album is a short, spare, pretty track called "The Way We Used To." Give it a listen below. More »

Chelsea Wolfe – “Sunstorm” Video

The video for "Sunstorm," a new song from the dark-pop artist Chelsea Wolfe, tells a nonsequential tale about doomed young love. We don't learn too much about the whys and hows, but it's a sad story nonetheless. And god knows, I'd love to see that long-skirts-and-Docs look come back. That was a good one. More »

Area Codes: 916 – Sacramento, CA

A prominent narrative going into CMJ this year was the surge in the popularity of hardcore music, and at the forefront of that discussion was Sacramento's Trash Talk. Though Trash Talk have been together, and been very good, for a number of years, they pretty much stacked paper at CMJ, from a press clip standpoint. More »

Alright, y'all know what time it is. It's the Halloweekend, and today we've got some of the best tracks from the last month that fit nicely into whatever theme-heavy environment you're trying to create. Whether it's a spare spectralness (Atlas Sound), a haunted heaviness (Crystal Stilts), or just some aggro rap music with a titular… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We're on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers' (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on,… More »
