The alphabetical summertime playlist Gregg Gillis' created for Vulture opens with Aaliyah's "Try Again," ends with Zhane's "Hey Mr. DJ," and finds a spot for Guided by Voices's "Game of Pricks" in between: “On the tour bus, people will be passing around the iPod, and there’s a feeling of ‘Oh, man, no one thought he’d… More »

Inaugural Governors Ball Coming To NYC

Organizers just announced the lineup for the first ever Governors Ball Festival in New York City on Governor's Island, of course. The festival takes place June 18. The schedule isn't up yet, but since they promise "no overlapping sets," I'm guessing it'll all be on one big stage, all day. UPDATE: Looks like it'… More »

Austin City Limits 2009 In Photos

There was dust, rain, then mud. There was Eddie Vedder, sitting in with Kings Of Leon and calling Perry Farrell up onstage with Pearl Jam during a reportedly monstrous, festival headlining two-hour set. There were Brooklynites and Brits, Dave Matthews and Phoenix, The B-52s and Mos Def, John Paul Jones and Karen O. Basically there… More »

Monolith 2009 In Photos

While we were rocking the Catskills, enjoying what Wayne Coyne said was "the greatest collection of underground music ever assembled," dozens of other great indie bands (and a few hip-hop luminaries) put on a much larger mountain festival in Morrison, Colorado. In its third year Monolith delivered rain from the get-go, but that only… More »

Street Scene 2009 In Photos

Some 30,000 people over two days crammed into the six-block area in San Diego's East Village that hosted the 25th annual Street Scene this past weekend. That's a strong number, albeit down from last year when people weren't scrambling for money to put food on their families. Still, those who made it witnessed a righteou… More »

Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2009 In Photos

Indeed, this year's Virgin Mobile Festival was totally free, and Richard Branson's attempt to "put a smile on people's faces" totally worked. Aside from those grumbling about the long lines for admission, because everybody loves complaining about something. The day featured sets from a reunited Blink-182, Weezer, Wale, and made for some fantastic scheduling… More »

Girl Talk/Max Tundra/Wiz Khalifa @ Williamsburg Waterfront, Brooklyn 8/23/09

Yesterday there was a free outdoor Girl Talk show in Williamsburg, so naturally it was a nice, quietly controlled time where everyone wore an appropriate amount of clothing. Just describing that show sounds like the punchline to some unimaginative hipster-hating zinger, but there it was, and it was real, and it was about as insane… More »

Indie Rockers Play Dress-Up For The New York Times

Coachella is already the most fashionable of the summer festivals by virtue of its proximity to Los Angeles, so this year the NYT ran with the glam, taking a bagful of high fashion garments and draping them on a bunch of rock stars for a fun little photo gallery. The spread runs in thi… More »

Girl Talk Working On “Actual Songs”

There's no production timetable, but for the eventual Feed The Animals followup, Gregg Gillis says he may "evolve" beyond party trick cut-ups to "individual songs" that include "actual repetition as opposed to linear structure" and use "some elements with a verse-and-chorus sort of structure." Read more about Gillis' transformation into Moby at Billboard. More »

Coachella 2009: Moz, Macca, Cohen Lead Friday’s Nostalgia Parade

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy Our trek into Indio went so smoothly this year that we've both become paranoid about something going incredibly wrong at any moment, but so far we've made it through without broken bones or spirits. In fact, even though the day started with extreme lines and heat, once we passed… More »

Stereogum’s Favorite Artists’ Favorite Things In 2008

We love year-end lists, it's really a shame that no one made any this month. To remedy that, we asked a handful of our favorite artists what music they dug most over the last twelve months. No Age, Grizzly Bear, Girl Talk, Antony Hegarty, Robin Pecknold, Sara Quin, and Kevin Barnes are among the familiar… More »

Girl Talk Is A PC

Apple's long-running Mac vs. PC ad campaign may be elitist, but as Videogum points out, "at least they addressed the superiority of their product over the competition, emphasizing the fact that PCs get viruses and break all the time." This new "I'm A PC" spot starring Girl Talk in his hotel room fail… More »

New Stephen Malkmus Video – “Gardenia”

Portland Filmmaker Dan Woods got a bunch of sorta-familiar indie rockers to sing "Gardenia," which is a fine backup plan when Stephen Malkmus is too much of a Jick to show up to his own video shoot. (J/K, Stevie.) Fortunately Portland is an indie rock theme park and a proven breeding round for fu… More »
