The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

On the intro to last week's 5 Best Videos post, I complained that music videos had not yet shaken themselves to life this year -- that, even factoring in the holiday break, we hadn't seen a single great video. Well, the break is over! Music videos are back, baby! We got a whole mess of… More »

Childish Gambino – “Sober” Video (Dir. Hiro Murai)

As I figured out when I put together my list of last year's 40 best music videos, Hiro Murai has arguably succeeded Nabil as the greatest director currently working in the music-video field. He made Flying Lotus' "Never Catch Me," my favorite video of the last year, and he was on that list more tha… More »

The 40 Best Music Videos Of 2014

Next year, YouTube will celebrate its 10th anniversary. For nearly a decade, then, music videos have belonged almost entirely to the internet. Once upon a time, video directors made their work for TV, expecting you to run across their images when you were flipping through channels. By the time YouTube hit its second year, that… More »

Lion Babe – “Jump Hi” (Feat. Childish Gambino) Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Lion Babe is quite the duo. Consisting of sassy, lion-maned songstress Jillian Hervey (daughter of Vanessa Williams) and producer Lucas Goodman, the group boasts a unique, appealing chemistry. It shines through in the new video for "Jump Hi," a danceable track that features Childish Gambino. In the clip, which was co-directed by Lion Babe and… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

We did it, everyone! We came up with the least glamorous music video ever made. I don't know what held the title before this week, but I do know that nothing else will ever hold it again. That piece of beautifully ugly anti-glamor is below, as are our other four picks for the week. More »

Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, just put out a new mixtape and EP in a joint release called STN MTN / Kauai.

Childish Gambino – “Secret Track”

Once upon a time, if you wanted to make a secret song, you just had to put it at the end of your CD, after an extra-long pause. That doesn't really work in the digital era. Everybody's going to know about it immediately, and anyway, you're going to fuck up someone's iTunes shuffle experience. So… More »

Download Childish Gambino STN MTN / Kauai Mixtape

Childish Gambino has been in the news lately for making some grandiose claims, and now he gets his chance to back them up. Today, the former Community star released his STN MTN / Kauai mixtape.

Osheaga 2014: Lorde, The Replacements, HAIM, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, & More

More than most North American cities, Montreal gets it right when it comes to hosting music festivals. Fortunate enough to have a setting like Parc Jean-Drapeau, located in the heart of the city, a five-minute subway ride from downtown, the Canadian city is able to pull off a music-and-arts festival like Osheaga with relative ease.

Childish Gambino Thinks He’s Better Than Drake, Kendrick

Kendrick Lamar dropped a nuclear bomb on what had become a peaceful rap climate last summer with his instantly legendary verse on Big Sean's "Control." Rappers brag all the time, but Kendrick caused a stir because he called out competing MCs by name, openly stating that he was aiming to destroy them all. It wa… More »

The Week In Pop: Sia Steps Out Of The Shadows, Sort Of

You've known Sia Furler for a while whether you realize it or not. The Australian singer and songwriter has been hovering around the music industry for nearly two decades. She scored a UK hit with the exceptionally late-'90s-sounding 2000 trip-hop single "Taken For Granted," but the Sneaker-Pimps-meets-Spice-Girls approach didn't fly in the US. Thanks i… More »

Milk Music isn't just a DIY punk band from Olympia; it's also the name Samsung has given to its entry into the streaming-services wars.

Watch Childish Gambino Cover P.M. Dawn’s “I’d Die Without You”

We here at Stereogum have long been accused of not taking Donald Glover seriously. And while it's true that I generally find Childish Gambino, Glover's rap alter-ego, to be an unctuous, overly self-conscious, teacher's-pet mic presence, his run on Community, which ended with a great goodbye episode a couple of weeks ago, was magical. He'… More »

Childish Gambino (Feat. Chance The Rapper) – “The Worst Guys” Video

Here's how annoying Childish Gambino is: He lined up a guest appearance from Chance The Rapper, one of the best rappers currently working, on his song "The Worst Guys," but didn't actually get him to rap on it; instead, he got Chance to repeat "all she needed was some..." a bunch of times on the… More »
