Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands of 2011

Last year, right around the time summer turned to fall, we at Stereogum published our list of the 40 best new bands of the year. The idea of a "new" band is a pretty nebulous one, since many of the kids we listed were probably planning out their musical ventures in their basements since… More »

FYF Fest 2011 In Photos

FYF Fest, which has had issues with security and crowds in previous years, seems to have moved past those problems and evolved into a healthier, happier festival.

Stereogum Monthly Mix: May 2011

At eight tracks and just over a half-hour, this month's mix compiles the most compelling freely released tracks of the past few weeks. It's bookended by guitars rooted in psychedelic jangle and hardcore, respectively, with largely electronic compositions in between. This month we were impressed by EMA, John Maus, Purity Ring, Laurel Halo, Com Truise,… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: January & February 2011

After a holiday break and an inclemently weathered January, our Monthly Mix series returns with a two-month/one-mix compilation that sets a defiant tone.
