Photos: SXSW 2015

SXSW 2015 has come and gone. As Scott noted over the weekend, it was an altogether less corporate, less celebrity-infused, less insane experience than in recent years, though of course it was still at least a little corporate and celebrity-infused and insane.

Ryan Hemsworth – “Too Long Here” (Feat. Alex G) Video

Late last year, the Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth released a collab-heavy mini album called Alone For The First Time that didn't really get enough attention. The record was full of oblique, impressionist, gorgeous pop songs like "Too Long Here," on which Hemsworth teamed up with the shambling lo-fi singer-songwriter Alex G. That song now ha… More »

Tory Lanez – “Mama Told Me” (Stereogum Premiere)

One of the last things the promising young rapper/producer Tory Lanez says on "Mama Told Me" is "I'm a rich young nigga from the 416," and yeah, his delivery is bound to remind you of Toronto's most famous hip-hop export, especially when matched with the booming yet ethereal production he crafted alongside Ryan Hemsworth and… More »

Ryan Hemsworth – “Every Square Inch” (Feat. Qrion)

The genre-blurring Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth made his name, in large part, by throwing these great tracks and remixes up on Soundcloud.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This was a weird week in the music-video universe, and that was a good thing. Many of this week's videos (including those that didn't make it onto this list, like clipping.'s genuinely harrowing "Body & Blood") do strange things with the form, warping it and manipulating it but still finding ways to complement their… More »

Last year, the Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth released his official debut album Guilt Trips, a gorgeous piece of work that flitted casually among genres but kept a mood running throughout.

Kitty, Sasha Go Hard, & Tink – “Spotless” (Prod. Ryan Hemsworth & Little Cloud)

Just because three female rappers show up on one posse cut, that doesn't mean we're dealing with a Tumblr-rap "Ladies Night." One cool thing about "Spotless," the new track that unites the forever starry-eyed Kitty with tough Chicago ladies Sasha Go Hard and Tink, is how smooth and seemsless it sounds. The beat, from… More »

A-1 – “Summertime Sadness” (Prod. Ryan Hemsworth) Video (Stereogum Premiere)
