Album Of The Week: Screaming Females Rose Mountain

This column can be hard to write when I'm not in love with any album that comes out during a particular week. But it's a whole lot harder when I'm in love with way too many albums. This was one of those weeks. This is kind of a good problem to have, but there i… More »

Stream Screaming Females Rose Mountain

There's a decent chance that the New Jersey punk rock power trio Screaming Females is the best rock band in the world right now, or anyway the best this side of the reactivated Sleater-Kinney. The band's last album, 2012's Steve Albini-recorded Ugly, was a searing blast of basement-punk intensity. On their new album RoseMore »

Watch Screaming Females Debut “It’s Not Fair” In 94 Jewel Performance Video

Back in December, we premiered the first live video that legendary rock-doc filmmaker Lance Bangs directed for Screaming Females' song "Ripe," off of the New Jersey band's forthcoming album Rose Mountain. I've said it several times in recent posts, and I'll say it again: That record is going to be a total shit-kicker. Get… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

The end is definitely near: The weather in NYC dropped like 20 degrees this week, and we're all over here looking back on 2014 trying to decide if the records we loved in March still stand up in November, and if the records we loved in November will stand up in March, and all the… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

For much of this week, it felt like there was only one song, period. So maybe it will come as a surprise to see that song not on our list of the week's 5 Best. It coulda been included here -- for all the attendant controversy, it's still a good song -- but there… More »

Screaming Females – “Wishing Well”

In 2012, New Jersey punk trio Screaming Females released Ugly, one of the best straight-up guitar-rock albums I've heard this decade. Since then, there's been a cassette EP and a live album and a furiously badass single, and now they've got a new 7" single that finds the band sounding like they're… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

This week's 5 Best Songs is perhaps the most diverse entry in the franchise's young history. It ranges from polished pop to acoustic melancholia, post-punk wails to cloud rap ephemera. Check it out below. More »

Screaming Females – “Ancient Civilization”

Last year, wail-shred virtuoso Maria Paternoster and her Jersey punk band Screaming Females released Ugly, one of the year's best albums, and toured like demons. Thus far this year, they've already followed that one up with the Chalk Tape EP, and they're about to start a somewhat demon-like month-long tour. They've also got a… More »

Deconstructing: The End Of Maxwell’s And Leaving New Jersey

Doors opened at 8, but really a few minutes past, the other week in Hoboken, and the audience -- mostly young, mostly male -- drifted into Maxwell's discordantly, with the unsure babble of those anticipating a blowout but gearing up for a funeral. Maxwell's has been tough to talk about these days, to really talk… More »

Garbage & Screaming Females – “Because The Night” Video

'90s alt-pop professionals Garbage and Jersey basement-punk heroes Screaming Females have an unlikely bond. They toured together last year, and Scremales leader Marissa Paternoster joined Garbage onstage regularly to cover Patti Smith's "Because The Night" (itself the result of an unlikely Smith/Springsteen alliance). Now they've committed that cover to wax, getting together into… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Obviously, the best music-related video of the past seven days is the yelling goats remix of Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble," and the second best is Wale attempting to fight a Toronto Raptors announcer during a game. Neither of these, however, is an actual music video, so I had to pick… More »

Screaming Females – “Poison Arrow” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Earlier this month, the great Jersey punk trio Screaming Females released Chalk Tape, a cassette-only EP that follows the insanely great 2012 album Ugly.
