The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

When sifting through this week’s qualified nominees for 5 Best Songs, four different tracks from Sky Ferreira’s long-awaited debut Night Time, My Time made the ballot. In the Bangerz pop-sphere, it’s a reminder that projects in the genre should be cohesive and well-produced and eschewing party-primed lyrics for emotional reveals is still the stuff hit… More »

Dum Dum Girls – “Lost Boys And Girls Club” Video

We started the day with “Lost Boys And Girls Club,” a new track from recent S’gum interviewees Dum Dum Girls, but now the L.A. band has delivered a glossy — at least it terms of the styling — video for the cut. The video, which is a collaboration between the Dum Dums and H&M, depict… More »

Progress Report: Dum Dum Girls

It’s been almost two years since we heard anything from Dum Dum Girls. The band’s last release, 2012’s excellent End of Daze EP, was not only a much-beloved sucker punch of a record, but it also played like a perfectly blissed-out culmination of everything the band had previously spent two full-length albums and a handful… More »

Turntable Interview: Dirty Beaches & Dum Dum Girls

Alex Zhang Hungtai, bka Dirty Beaches, recently released Drifters/Love Is The Devil, an ambitious double-album that dazzles with his cinematic lo-fi sound. Its latter half is filled with intensely moody instrumental tracks that make for some heavy and heady listening. Hungtai stopped by to talk about the introspective album — and he brought along… More »

Bloc Party, Dum Dum Girls @ Hollywood Palladium, Hollywood 12/7/12

Bloc Party stopped by the Hollywood Palladium in support of their latest album Four. Some of the highlights included the delay pedal madness of “Octopus,” the detuned crunch of “Kettling,” and older surefire body-moving classics “Banquet,” “Helicopter,” and “This Modern Love.” Dum Dum Girls overcame some early microphone problems for their patented reverb-soaked jams.

Dum Dum Girls – “Lord Knows” Video

Lord Knows,” the lead single from the new Dum Dum Girls EP End Of Daze, is one of the prettiest songs to come down the pike in the last few months. And in the track’s new video, from director Christin Turner, all four Dum Dums play veiled witch brides who summon a shirtless dude from… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The video I keep thinking about this week isn’t one of the ones on this list; it’s “Ill Manors,” from the British rapper Plan B, and it’s almost a month old at this point. The clip includes images from last year’s London riots, as well as a whole lot more footage that’s explicitly meant to… More »

Dum Dum Girls – “Coming Down” Video

The single biggest departure on Only In Dreams, the Dum Dum Girls’ great 2011 sophomore album, was the slo-mo Mazzy Star-esque ballad “Coming Down.” That song’s brand-new video is a single worshipful black-and-white shot of bandleader Dee Dee, who we see staring down the camera while people come along and cut her clothes off with… More »

Black Tambourine Cover The Ramones

The D.C.-area early-’90s twee-pop originators Black Tambourine are back together and ready to release their first new record since breaking up in 1991. In May, they’ll release OneTwoThreeFour, an EP of Ramones covers. And below, we’ve got one of the EP’s tracks: The band’s blissy, fuzzed-out take on “What’s Your Game,” a sweetly spiky pseudo-ballad… 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, then shifted… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

After last week’s bounty of videos, things slowed way down this week, and that’s too bad. The best video of the week was the one where the camera more-or-less holds steady on the band for almost the entire length of the clip. The second-best one is the crass TV-show tie-in. Still, there’s some fun stuff… More »
