The 40 Best Music Videos Of 2014

Next year, YouTube will celebrate its 10th anniversary. For nearly a decade, then, music videos have belonged almost entirely to the internet. Once upon a time, video directors made their work for TV, expecting you to run across their images when you were flipping through channels. By the time YouTube hit its second year, that… More »

Trash Talk Get Their Own Converse

Converse has a history of getting bands to design custom sneakers, from Metallica to Big Boi to Pink Floyd (check out our official band sneaker guide for way more). Now, Trash Talk are getting their own official Converse design, and the kicks are inspired by the LP released by the band earlier this year,… More »

Trash Talk & Flatbush Zombies – “Modern Mayhem”

Earlier this year, Californian hardcore warriors Trash Talk and Brooklyn internet-rap drug-munchers Flatbush Zombies teamed up for "97.92," a song from the Converse-sponsored CONS EP VOL. 1. It had a really great video. Now, there's a CONS EP VOL. 2, and it's got the two groups teaming up again. Trash Talk's Garrett Stevenson produced… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This was generally a busy week, music-video-wise, but the biggest stories were two flashy, conversation-starting pop videos that seemed to represent two different sides of an ideological divide, even though the women who made the two videos are friends and everything. On the one side, there was Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," which… More »

Trash Talk – “The Great Escape” Video

Sacramento hardcore band Trash Talk put out their uncompromising new album, No Peace, a few months ago. In the trippy, violent, animated new video for album cut "The Great Escape," three cartoon delinquents who look kinda like Trash Talk swipe some psychedelic Satan-juice from a convenience store (naturally) and endure one hell of a… More »

Watch Trash Talk Knock Down Event Photographer’s Drone With A Beercan

During a show in Detroit on Saturday, thrash rockers Trash Talk threw a beer at a drone that was hovering above them and photographing the concert. The drone captured the whole encounter on video, which shows it approaching the stage and capturing some moshers in the pit before descending towards the stage as Spencer Pollard… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This week's list walks the line between calm, serene, stately beauty and extreme blood-splooge trash. Both can be awesome! And both are perfectly legit music-video approaches. But this week, we've got two of the latter and three of the former. Blood-splooge trash is winning, as it usually does. Check out this week's list below. More »

Trash Talk – “The Hole” Video

Today, berserk hardcore road warriors Trash Talk released No Peace, their furious new album, and we named it our Album Of The Week. Around the same time we were posting that, the band shared their new video for "The Hole," a two-minute blast of rage from the album. Directed by Focus Creeps, the… More »

Album Of The Week: Trash Talk No Peace

People don't talk about Trash Talk's music. We talk about Trash Talk as an avenging force, or as a torch-bearing institution dedicated to reminding us of the days when you could get your fucking head kicked in at a punk rock show. The first time I saw Trash Talk live, I'm not sure I eve… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

In keeping with my newfound traditions of saying nice things about Gwar in the intros to these posts, the music-related video I enjoyed most this week was this, the YouTube commercial for Gwar's Gwar-B-Q festival, which includes one of Dave Brockie's final performances under all that latex. Gwar-B-Q goes down 8/16 in Richmond,… More »

Trash Talk x Flatbush Zombies – “97.92” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

West Coast hardcore chaos agents Trash Talk and rising East Coast hip-hop upstarts Flatbush Zombies teamed for "97.92" in February as part of the Converse-sponsored collaboration compilation CONS EP VOL. 1. The song was a trippy take on boom-bap that reminded me of the Pharcyde, and now it has a trippy video to match. More »

Trash Talk – “Cloudkicker”

The legendarily violent Sacramento hardcore warriors Trash Talk made an effort to clean up their sound slightly on their last album, 2012's 119, but it was still a misanthropic monster of a record. They've just announced plans to follow it up with their next album, which is called No Peace and which will be… More »

Wavves And Trash Talk Interview Shaquille O’Neal

Last week Shaquille O'Neal announced plans for a sequel to his widely panned cult classic 1994 video game, Shaq Fu, funded in part through Indiegogo. The goal behind Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is ostensibly to redeem the legacy of the original, known for being one of the worst games ever. (Indiegogo tagline:… More »

Trash Talk x Flatbush Zombies – “97.92” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last fall we heard "Gauchos," a collaboration between New York rap collective Ratking and Black Dice member Eric Copeland commissioned by Converse for an upcoming compilation called CONS EP VOL. 1. Now comes another track from the comp, a collection of collaborations recorded at the shoe company's Rubber Tracks studio in Williamsburg. "97.92" pair… More »

Watch DIIV, Sky Ferreira, Trash Talk, Charli XCX In A Myspace Commercial

The Justin Timberlake-co-owned new Myspace apparently launched today, despite the fact that registration has already been opened to the public and the editorial has been delivering a lot of content. For today's official opening ceremony, the site has released two commercials directed by photographer Ryan McGinley. The ads feature a ton of musicians partying, like… More »

Trash Talk – “Exile On Broadway”

We're less than a week away from the release of Trash Talk's 119, their first album to be released on Odd Future's label. We've already heard one song from the album, the ferocious "F.E.B.N.," and now, they've dropped another on us. "Exile On Broadway" is pure, scathing punk: It clocks in at 1:12 and… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I never expected to use the word "Lynchian" to describe a 2 Chainz video, but that happened this week. Yet again, we've got a complete avalanche of idiosyncratic visions and brainpan-expoding imagery from a whole lot of videos this week, both big-budget and no-budget. And in putting this list together, I had to make… More »

Trash Talk – “F.E.B.N.” Video (Dir. Tyler, The Creator)

"F.E.B.N.," the new song from feral Sacramento hardcore band and newly minted Odd Future affiliates Trash Talk, is a minute and a half of screams and juddering riffs, and it somehow still stands as a move toward accessibility for this band. Their buddy Tyler, The Creator directed the song's new video in stoic black-and-white, but… More »

Trash Talk – “F.E.B.N.”

Trash Talk's scathing, violent hardcore has been captured on a handful of excellent releases, but the band's profile skyrocketed when they signed to Odd Future Records and started playing legendarily insane shows with Tyler and Co. The band's first release on their new label is called 119, and it's preceded by an excellent single:… More »
