Kiss 1O8 – “Bleach”

If you’ve been wondering what happened to the ratchet Worcester, Massachusetts psych-pop band DOM, they changed their name to Kiss 1O8 and released an album called HYPERFANTASY XL in 2013. We haven’t heard a whole lot since then, but they did throw a sunny, blippy instrumental called “Bleach” up online today. It’s basically a chillwave… More »

Dom – “My Drug Buddy” (Lemonheads Cover)

We haven’t heard much from Dom since he changed his project’s name to Kiss 1O8 and released a set of spazzed-out electronic instrumentals last fall, but the Worcester native seems to be getting back in touch with his alt-rock side. Specifically, he just released a cover of the Lemonheads classic “Drug Buddy,” a song from… More »

Stream Kiss 1O8 (formerly DOM) HYPERFANTASY XL

As promised when we heard about DOM’s name change to Kiss 1O8, Halloween marks the release of HYPERFANTASY XL, the project’s debut full-length. In contrast to the psych-pop singles published under the DOM name, this record seems to be a strictly instrumental electronic release. SoundCloud tags include “Glitch,” “pop,” and “Maximalist” (twice), and on first… More »

DOM Changes Name To Kiss 1O8

Last time we heard from the MGMT-lovin’ Brooklyn-via-Worcester psych-poppers DOM, they graced our Liz Pelly with an new song called “H o t . l i m i t” that was pegged as the first track on a forthcoming full-length debut called HYPERFANTASY XL LP. That was almost eight months ago, and not a pee… More »

DOM – “H o t . l i m i t”

Sometime during January of 2010, a song called “Jesus” appeared in my Gmail inbox with little to no context, just a note from some dude named Dom in Western Mass asking if I’d play the song on my college radio show. Three years and two EPs later, despite a major-label deal, mega festival appearances, to… More »

Artist Polaroids From Lollapalooza 2011

Lollapalooza celebrated its twentieth anniversary in Chicago over the weekend with headline performances by Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, and Muse. It was the support acts, however, that really excited us. So like he did at Bonnaroo, our tireless photog/artist wrangler Graeme Flegenheimer (with help from The Impossible Project) distributed Polaroid cameras and film to 23… More »

How Independent Rockers Celebrated #IndependenceDay

How did you celebrate July 4th? On a rooftop BBQ listening to our summer mix? Maybe you stayed in and watched old episodes of Hoarders on Roku? Maybe I stayed in and did that. There is no way to know. But all across this great country we do know there were fireworks to be see… More »

Stereogum & Popgun STEREO★GUN CMJ Party, Santos Party House, NYC 10/20/10

Last night our STEREO★GUN collaboration with PopGun Booking went down on both floors of Santos Party House. Sometime from when we organized it, to the actual happening, people got especially excited about Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., who found themselves with a relatively raucous, packed room by the time they played their basement set. There were… More »

Stereogum & PopGun Present STEREO★GUN: ALL NIGHT LONG 10/20/10

Every autumn NYC’s week-long college music marathon is a great excuse for radio promoters and DSLR-toting bloggers to hobnob with famous publicists. Those who attend on official CMJ bizness even receive a canvas tote bag of promotional garbage. Also there are panels? I’m told There Will Be Panels. Joking aside, in its 30th year CMJ… More »

Neon Indian, Prefuse 73, DOM, Nite Jewel, Miniature Tigers, Com Truise @ Governors Island, NYC 8/14/10

Governors Island is a magical place built for art, installations, bike rides, and marriage proposals. The New York Times has done a profile, followup, and critical discussion piece on the place this summer, but the best way to experience it is take the five-minute ferry from the South Street over to the isle and let… More »

Siren Festival 2010 In Photos

Village Voice’s annual Coney Island rock extravaganza turned 10 on Saturday and went down as sweaty and free as years past. Things kicked off with Dom in the early afternoon, and wrapped up many bottles of sunscreen later with Matt & Kim and Holy Fuck. In between: Ted Leo, Ponytail, Harlem, Pains Of Being Pure… More »

Cruel Summer: Stereogum Summer Jams 2010

Welcome to summer, welcome to free and legally downloadable summer jams. Time to CELEBRATE on ROOFTOPS. But you know, oil spills. And crazy people waiting in lines for phones for hours. And poorly officiated soccer games. The world’s topsy turvy, and so then is this mix, to reflect its time and place. It’s America’s weekend,… More »

Tokyo Police Club – “Wait Up (Boots Of Danger) (DOM Remix)”

After young Worcester, MA fringe-cultural ambassador DOM dug into Glasslands I was left repeating that he “does everything right,” and this remix he filed for Tokyo Police Club’s racing Champ single “Wait Up (Boots Of Danger)” sorta extends the trend. More for the associations than the remix itself: Passion Pit’s already delivered a take onMore »

DOM, Happy Birthday @ Glasslands, Brooklyn 5/22/10

You hear “Living In America” and “Burn Bridges” and you think those hooks do everything right. You read DOM’s interview on Pitchfork, left with the knowledge he even says everything right, too. This show at Glasslands, an afterparty for the three-day NYC Pop Fest organized by the ever on-point PopGun folk, made the point-by-point checklist… More »
