Stream DIIV Oshin

Brooklyn indie rockers DIIV — FKA Dive — have been picking up momentum in the last year or so, thanks to the strength of dark, soaring rockers like “How Long Have You Known” and “Doused” as well as the band’s huge-sounding live show. Now, the Cole Smith-fronted band’s entire debut is streaming, so have at… More »

DIIV (FKA Dive) – “Doused”

So, Brooklyn indie rockers Dive changed their name to DIIV (“The word was an element of what inspired the project in its genesis, but we’ve outgrown the name and its associations,” Cole Smith told Pitchfork ). Luckily, as a salve to the possible confusion the group also posted reverberating rocker “Doused,” so that’s awesome. Slightly… More »

Dive – “How Long Have You Known?”

Cole Smith’s Beach Fossils offshoot Dive has emerged as its own tour de force over the past 6 months, launching a ton of solid singles like “Human,” “Corvalis” and “Geist” as the group leads up to their Captured Tracks debut, Oshin. Now, they’ve put out a new single that’s confirmed for that release, the swirling,… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: March 2012

This was an incredible month for free hip hop MP3s, and it was an incredible month for songs by Lemonade because “Neptune” is one of this year’s finest. And so the paramaters I gave myself with this month’s mix are as follows: Open with Lemonade’s “Neptune,” and create a track flow that blended but flipped… More »

Dive – “Geist”

Brooklyn indie rock upstarts Dive earned their placement on the The 25 Bands We’re Most Excited To See At SXSW 2012 thanks to their deliberate, hi-quality trickle of 7” releases like “Corvalis” and “Human.” Today, the Cole Smith-fronted group dropped a new single, a dense, pummel of a groove called “Geist” that’s in April. Na… More »

The 25 Bands We’re Most Excited To See At SXSW 2012

Hey, everybody, it’s that time again! South By Southwest 2012. Are you ready? How’s your hashtag game? Can you feel the early-onset FOMO? As the Austin institution grows larger and larger, with more and more high-level acts (ahem) interjecting themselves into the fray, there’s still plenty of room for the groups that are just starting… More »

Dive – “Corvalis” (Stereogum Premiere)

The nascent Brooklyn-based brainchild of Beach Fossils guitarist Z. Cole Smith, Dive’s lead (and only) single, “Sometime,” is a chilly, chiming, highly promising cut of delayed guitars, gauzy vocals, and kraut-intoned undertow. Its melody and vocal treatment are slight, and airy, but charged and strong enough to sustain a worthy remix by fellow Beach Fossil… More »

Remixtape Vol. 6

It’s the return of Remixtape, the feature where I listen to a tremendous amount of shitty blog-bait “X Remixes Y” tracks and weed out those worth your weed-out. (Right?) Volume 6 opens with this month’s undisputed champion of tracks bearing Remix in their title: the indomitable “Huzzah!” featuring a fierce set of relatively underground rapper… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: September 2011

Save a bit of humidity, it is an undeniably autumnal day in NYC. It’s gray, it is wet, and it feels positively gauche to jam to anything that would feel right at a beach. So to help to fill the void created by expunging “sunny music” from your daily playlist, and to show solidarity with… More »
