Watch Carly Rae Jepsen, Dev Hynes, & Ariel Rechtshaid Debut “All That” On SNL

Carly Rae Jepsen released a new single called “All That” last night just in time to perform it on Saturday Night Live. We knew Dev Hynes was involved with Jepsen’s new album, and it definitely shows on this song, a shining specimen of the synth-dreamy, bass-popping ’80s pop sound Hynes perfected on Cupid Deluxe.

Tibet House US Benefit Concert @ Carnegie Hall, New York 3/5/15

Right before Patti Smith abandoned the low, throaty hum of her alto to burst into the growling second half of “Ghandi,” she spit on the Carnegie Hall stage. If it had been anyone else, the act would’ve seemed careless, like an afterthought, an accident maybe. It seemed like an act: not of attrition against the… More »

Q&A: Carly Rae Jepsen On Her All-Star Indie Collaborators And Really, Really, Really Anticipated New Album

Following up a juggernaut like “Call Me Maybe” has got to be intimidating. There hasn’t been a song like that since, one that was so immediately pervasive and so utterly inescapable. The second that track hit, through a series of almost chance circumstances, it was swept up into the zeitgeist and spit out into ubiquity. More »

All the songs chosen for 5 Best Songs this week are, intentionally or not, crushingly self-reflective and introspective. They concern relationships and how we actually relate to others emotionally, not just romantically, as well as how we treat ourselves. But that’s a lot to think about on a Friday afternoon. Let’s say that they’re all… More »

The release of Heems’ Eat Pray Thug is rapidly approaching, but up until now we’ve only heard one song from the project, “Sometimes.” A second song is out there now: “Home” is the Das Racist alum’s collaboration with Dev Hynes (Blood Orange), and it turned out better than I could have imagined.

Buscabulla – “Métele” Video

Puerto Rican pop duo Buscabulla released their self-titled four-track EP last fall. Today, they drop the visuals for the Dev Hynes-produced track “Métele.” The song’s minimal yet decadent sounds comprise lush drums, ’80s synths, and dreamy vocals, which here serve as the soundtrack to three drag queens preparing for a show in Puerto Rico.

It’s New York Fashion Week, which means that Midtown Manhattan is crowded with enviably attractive people in very nice, very expensive clothing, working hard to make everyone else look like they just climbed out of a garbage can.

David Byrne Pairs Teenage Color Guard Teams With St. Vincent, Dev Hynes, & Others In New Project

My former roommate was a renaissance man of sorts, the kind of guy who blew through pastimes with maximum enthusiasm and minimal commitment — rock climbing, snowboarding, bicycling, weightlifting, and on and on.
