Dum Dum Girls – “Are You Okay” Short Film (Written By Bret Easton Ellis)

Dum Dum Girls didn't just make a music video for "Are You Okay," a humid sigh of a song from their new album Too True. Instead, they got the famed American Psycho/Less Than Zero author Bret Easton Ellis to script them a creepy, inscrutable 11-minute psychological-horror short film for it. Dum Dums leader Dee Dee… More »

Dum Dum Girls – “Too True To Be Good” Video

"Too True To Be Good" is an effects-pedal-happy dream-pop stunner from the very good new Dum Dum Girls album Too True, and now it follows "Lost Boys And Girls Club" as the album's second video. The new clip goes heavy on film-school effects -- hazy filters, double-exposures, dissolving film, stock footage of flowers --… More »

Tamaryn, Tropic of Cancer, Vum @ The Echo, Los Angeles 11/23/12

The Echo couldn't hold anymore people as a sold out audience witnessed Tamaryn unleash a hypnotic set from their reverb-soaked sophomore album, Tender New Signs. Guitarist Rex Shelverton masterfully recreated the dense sheets of sound from the album with a Roland Space Echo and the highly utilized tremolo arm. Tropic Of Cancer and Vum provided… More »

Tamaryn On Tender Signs, Touring, And Why Making Music Is Like Magic

Last month, Tamaryn released Tender New Signs, the band's sophomore offering of echo-laden shoegaze gorgeousness. Moving into even more tripped-out territories than those occupied by 2010's The Waves, the new record shows the band (Tamaryn and guitarist/producer Rex John Shelverton) further defining their own very specific (and abjectly gothy) aesthetic. I had the pleasure of… More »

Tamaryn – “The Garden” Video

"The Garden" is one of the blurrier songs on Californian narco-rocker Tamaryn's new sophomore album Tender New Signs, and director Miko Revereza's video makes it even blurrier, going heavy on out-of-focus shots on Tamaryn's face, lit dramatically, while flower petals blow past. It could only look more early-'90s if Tamaryn had a Parker Lewi… More »

Tamaryn – “I’m Gone”

A couple of years ago, the San Francisco-based Tamaryn released the very good sundazed narco-rock album The Waves. This fall, she'll follow it up with a new one called Tender New Signs, and the swooping, heavy-lidded "I'm Gone" is the first single. Listen to it below. More »

Hear Two New Ford & Lopatin Tracks Feat. Shannon Funchess & Tamaryn

Their 2011 album Channel Pressure was all queasy synthpop, like a bad-dream memory of '80s PBS science-film soundtracks, but Ford & Lopatin go in a couple of different directions on a new collaborative single. One track, "Snakes," features Light Asylum wailer and frequent !!! collaborator Shannon Funchess, and it's essentially a Eurodisco banger, but stripped… More »

Les Demoniaques (Dum Dum Girls x Tamaryn) Cover Jesus & Mary Chain

Les Demoniaques is the project of Dum Dum Girls leader Dee Dee and Tamaryn. Take a listen to their cover of Jesus & Mary Chain's "Teenage Lust": They remove the fuzzy, sweaty crunch of the Honey's Dead original, transforming it into something airier and, oddly, less lusty. More »

Tamaryn Soundtracks Lindsay Lohan Short Film

In the spirit of Tri-Angle records' Lindsay Lohan tribute album Let Me Shine For You, gothy shoegaze specialist Tamaryn scored Lindsay Lohan, a short film by glossy New York-based pop painter Richard Phillips. The clip, described as "a 90-second ad for [Lohan's] more sober self," will be included with 79 other video… More »

SALEM, Tamaryn Dress Up For NYTimes

A few months ago we posted a sunny "indie rock" NYTimes photo shoot, one set around Coachella and its proximity to L.A. and Jenny Lewis. These pictures of Salem and Tamaryn illustrate an aesthetic/temperature shift. Cameron Krone shot Tamaryn, aka "[a] synth-folk-goth-band balladress .... a West Coast, this-century update on Kate Bush," who's "Styled… More »

The First Five Minutes After Death: Various Artists Remember Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson

I woke up early Thursday to a message from Sasha Grey titled "Sleazy Passed." She'd sent it at 5:30 AM and said, among other things, "Now I know how people felt when MJ died ... I think." A certain strain of listeners and makers, those following paths moving outside of the usual pop cultural histories,… More »

Tamaryn – “Dawning” Video

This sweet, flowery, emulsion burning video for "Dawning" features Dominant Legs' Hannah Hunt along with Tamaryn. It was directed with an eye to vintage 120 Minutes by Christin Turner, who also brought that blurry, nostalgic feel to the "Love Fade" clip. (Via GvsB) The Waves is out via More »

Last night our STEREO★GUN collaboration with PopGun Booking went down on both floors of Santos Party House.

Stereogum & PopGun Present STEREO★GUN: ALL NIGHT LONG 10/20/10

Every autumn NYC's week-long college music marathon is a great excuse for radio promoters and DSLR-toting bloggers to hobnob with famous publicists. Those who attend on official CMJ bizness even receive a canvas tote bag of promotional garbage. Also there are panels? I'm told There Will Be Panels. Joking aside, in its 30th year CMJ… More »
