The 8 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we've got new videos from Hooray For Earth, Broken Social Scene, Tyler, The Creator, and White Lies. I included the Calling All Cars and Border Surrender videos because they both featured long slow-motion foot chases but the latter video also has a surprise at the end of its long, single shot. You'll also… More »

Tyler, The Creator Responds To Tegan & Sara

While Earl aka Thebe weathers the Odd Future hypestorm from a safe, voluntary distance, Tyler, The Creator sits in its epicenter. He's a clever boy just out of his teens whose anti-everything rhetorical baseline is kindling to the adolescent id, who has released a knotty LP Goblin that is kindling to sharp thinkMore »

Riot At Odd Future’s Boston In-Store

A cop was hospitalized after a riot at Boston's Newbury Comics connected to rap artist Tyler, The Creator, and if you are reporting this news for local TV make sure to nod your head incredulously when saying the artist's name, as if you have never heard such a silly name. The less sensationalistic rendition of… More »

Wild Beasts Smother Under The Influence

Hopefully by now you've heard Smother, the third album from Wild Beasts. As with all their records, it feels like it comes out of nowhere. And as always, I have trouble finding reference points to give people when recommending them (Antony? Talking Heads?). That's why I asked the band to talk about some of… More »

Tyler, The Creator – Goblin Comment Party

We got "Yonkers," "Analog," and "Tron Cat," before Tyler, The Creator's XL debut Goblin leaked last week. It'll be out properly tomorrow. Now that you've had the weekend to listen, (and Jon Caramanica's entertaining profile in the New York Times and The Guardian's cover story to read), it's time to… More »

Tyler, The Creator – “Analog” (Live, Featuring Hodgy Beats & Syd Tha Kid)

It's unclear if the version of "Tron Cat" that leaked last week is the final mix from Tyler's forthcoming ">Goblin, and it is certain that this live version of "Analog" is not exactly how the song will sound on the Odd Future capo's XL debut. Imperfect though they may be for the task, sketche… More »

Tyler, The Creator – “Tron Cat”

We All Want Someone To Shout For points to a yo-yo tricks video on YouTube that is soundtracked by "Tron Cat," a new Tyler, The Creator song that apparently leaked yesterday. The track will appear on the Odd Future frontman's highly anticipated XL debut Goblin and you can hear it below. More »

The Best Odd Future Interview

First of all give propers to Nardwuar The Human Serviette for wrangling the Odd Future crew into one place at one time during SXSW 2011. (Portraiture artist Ryan Muir can tell you how difficult this is.) And also give Narduwuar respect for choosing his location wisely: some sort of isolated rooftop, making their wandering… More »

Odd Future Make A Clip For Funny Or Die

So this month Tyler and his cabal crossed some sort of a divide from internet/forum phenoms to bona fide YouTube (and boobtube) stars, rapidly checking off apparent life goals of meeting Bieber and Diddy and being big upped from Kanye and filing tweets popping on @humblebrag's radar. And so… More »

Odd Future’s Performance On Fallon Is A Thing You Absolutely Should Watch

NBC found its must-see TV last night, thanks to an intense four-minute appearance from a shock-tricked hip hop troupe of teenagers from Los Angeles. Honors to Tyler, The Creator and Hodgy Beats, with the help of Questlove (in black hoodie for necessary, bonus hardness) and Mos Def's Kool Aid swilled "SWAAAG"s delivered straight into camera… More »

The 12 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we've got a lot of new videos-- clips from Wale, Toro Y Moi, the New Pornographers, Damian Marley and Nas, the Black Keys, and Modest Mouse, among others. The Tyler, The Creator video is the darkest and hardest to shake of this lot. But once that's out of the way, many of thi… More »

Tyler, The Creator – “Yonkers” Video

Here is a late night gift from Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All stormcenter @fuckTyler, The Creator in the form of "Yonkers," a stark, fantastic(al) clip he was right to debut after midnight. (N.B. He appreciates it: People Are Actually Staying Up For This; It Was A Time That Noone Gave A… More »

Lykke Li – “I Follow Rivers (Tyler, The Creator Remix)”

When we talked about Dave Sitek's remix of "I Follow Rivers," I said it paled in comparison to the original which had a sparer arrangement and a "swaggering pulse." A pulse that got considerably more swag via this redo by Odd Future wide-eyed visionary Tyler, The Creator. The Bastard-styled weirdo synth production backs u… More »

Odd Future @ The Echo, Los Angeles 12/1/10

When the lyrically divisive and button pressing though unquestionably gifted Tumblr-centric Los Angeles rap crew Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All played their first show in NYC, most every media outlet in the city had a delegate present (shout out). Already known though laid bare that night, Odd Future orbits around… More »

James Pants – “Darlin'”

James Pants will play all your instruments then play with all your styles. The electronic producer has been active on Stones Throw for a bit via various singular dispatches, though he's readying a proper full-length for that label for Spring 2011. The first track is "Darlin'," which sets phased and sliced Suicide keys (he'… More »

Jack White Plays Conan Premiere, With Conan

Yesterday afternoon I enjoyed this John Roderick column about the insidious, pernicious effects of drug-taking on artists, and the flawed myth that they create a sustained, heightened state of creativity either because of their consciousness altering, or because they give said artists the "persecuted feeling they crave," a "sense of exclusivity and resistance to… More »
