Stream Mark Lanegan Band Phantom Radio (Stereogum Premiere)

Back in August, we heard "Floor of the Ocean," a single off Mark Lanegan Band's forthcoming record, Phantom Radio. While Lanegan's trajectory as a musician has changed significantly since Screaming Trees -- at times Phantom Radio sounds practically crystalline, far removed from the man's grunge upbringings -- Lanegan's voice is still cavernous. Some of the… More »

Mark Lanegan Band – “Sad Lover (Josh Homme Remix)”

Mark Lanegan is having a really good year. He's already helped out his buddy J Mascis by doing vocals on the new Sweet Apple album, and soon you're gonna hear him tear up the new Earth album (yes, Earth will have vocals on their next album!). But he also put out No Bells On Sunday,… More »

Mark Lanegan Band – “Sad Lover” Video

Mark Lanegan is arguably the owner of indie rock's finest haggard, smoky groan, and he released his old-timey covers album Imitations less than a year ago. This fall, he'll follow that up with the new album Phantom Radio. And before he even gets to that, he'll drop the new vinyl-only EP No Bells On Sunday. More »

Sweet Apple – “Let’s Take The Same Plane” Video (Feat. Mike Watt)

J Mascis' band Sweet Apple bring together a lot of alt-rock vets on their new album The Golden Age Of Glitter, as evidenced on the previously released "Wish You Could Stay (A Little Longer)," which featured Mark Lanegan. In the video for "Let's Take The Same Place," even more major names come into the fold. More »

Sweet Apple – “Wish You Could Stay (A Little Longer)” (Feat. Mark Lanegan) Video + Stream The Golden Age Of Glitter

J Mascis' band Sweet Apple is kind of a supergroup with two members of Cobra Verde, one from Witch, and on the recent single "Wish You Could Stay," grunge vet Mark Lanegan. The band-directed video for the song, which appears on the band's new album The Golden Age Of Glitter, follows each member throwing a… More »

Mark Lanegan – “I’m Not the Loving Kind” Video

This past week, Mark Lanegan released Imitations, his album of old-timey covers. The video for his version of John Cale's "I'm Not The Loving Kind" follows a haunted, leathery cowboy -- a figure even more grizzled than Lanegan himself, if you can even conceive of this -- as he trudges through the neon absurdities of… More »

Martina Topley-Bird (Feat. Mark Lanegan & Warpaint) – “Crystalised” (The xx Cover) Video

Martina Topley-Bird has joined Mark Lanegan and Warpaint to release this cover for the xx's "Crystalised." You'll remember Topley-Bird for vital vocal contributions to Tricky's Maxinquaye. It's a fitting cover because you could argue that if there wasn't a Maxinquaye there may not have been an xx. Lanegan provides some smoky vocals as well, but… More »

Mark Lanegan – “I’m Not The Loving Kind” (John Cale Cover)

Last year, we gave Album Of The Week to Blues Funeral, the last album from the wizened and liquor-throated former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan. Later this year, he'll follow it up with a (very different) new album called Imitations. Here's what Lanegan says about it: "When I was a kid in the late sixtie… More »

Queens Of The Stone Age – “100 Days” (Mark Lanegan Cover)

Mark Lanegan, the former Screaming Trees frontman and current avatar of world-weary whiskey-dipped badassery, is effectively a part-time member of Queens Of The Stone Age; ...Like Clockwork, the new QOTSA album, is the fifth of the band's albums to feature Lanegan's vocals. (Lanegan also toured with the band for a few years.) And in a… More »

Moby & Mark Lanegan – “The Lonely Night” Video

Moby and Mark Lanegan both do a ton of work with different artists, but it's still a bit of a surprise to see them working with each other. The new Record Store Day single "The Lonely Night" has Lanegan's dusky vocals over a pretty downtempo track from Moby, and its new video, from director ColinMore »

Hear Josh Homme & Mark Lanegan’s Theme For Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown

Anthony Bourdain and Josh Homme have been buds at least since Queens Of The Stones Age played the No Reservations holiday episode back in 2007. And now, with a new QOTSA album imminent and a new Bourdain series underway, the two are officially working together. Homme and occasional QOTSA member Mark Lanegan recorded a theme… More »

Mark Lanegan – “Red Balloon” (Tim Hardin Cover)

Tim Hardin, most famous for writing "If I Were A Carpenter," was one of the less-appreciated lights of the early-'60s folk music boom, but a new tribute compilation aims to give the man a little more shine. The comp, Reasons To Believe: The Songs Of Tim Hardin, has people like Okkervil River and Alela Diane… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

My two favorite music videos this week were slow, lyrical depictions of combat sports full of squalid shots of slovenly audience members and slow-motion images of gladiators at work. So, a note to music-video directors: Make more slow, lyrical depictions of combat sports. It's always awesome. Click below for this week's list. More »

UNKLE – “Another Night Out” (Feat. Mark Lanegan) Video

Though it's been a while since the LP that "Another Night Out" was featured on came out, that didn't stop UK production duo UNKLE from putting out a dramatic black-and-white clip almost two years after the fact. While it's a bit odd for UNKLE's interests, the release is actually timed rather nicely for its featured… More »

Album Of The Week: Mark Lanegan Band Blues Funeral

A year and a half ago, I had a perfectly lovely telephone conversation with Isobel Campbell, the former Belle & Sebastian member who has recorded three ultra-satisfying albums of Nancy Sinatra pastiche with Mark Lanegan. And during that conversation, I learned something about Lanegan that seems to throw this entire career into stark relief: He… More »

Progress Report: Mark Lanegan

Name: Mark Lanegan Progress Report: The songwriter talks about Blues Funeral, his first solo album in nearly 8 years. It should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with his music that Mark Lanegan is a man of relatively few words. Whether it be with his work as the frontman of Screaming Trees, his work… More »

Mark Lanegan – “The Gravedigger’s Song”

The former Screaming Trees frontman and great whiskey-dipped American growler Mark Lanegan will release the new solo album Blues Funeral early next year, and the lead single and opening track "The Gravedigger's Song" is a pounding, apocalyptic thousand-yard-stare rumble; it's just the sort of mythic koan he does so well. Listen below. More »

Photos From ATP Bowlie 2 Curated By Belle & Sebastian

The Belle & Sebastian-curated ATP Bowlie 2 took place earlier this week (December 10-12) at Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead. (In 1999 B&S curated The Bowlie Weekender, which ultimately became All Tomorrow's Parties, hence the "2".)
