Featured Win Win stories

2012 was the first full year without LCD Soundsystem since James Murphy distilled the fleeting essence of cool into seven-some comically heartrending minutes a decade prior. To remind us what we lost when the balloons came down and the lights came up at Madison Square Garden, directors Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace released Shut UpMore »

It’s the last week of April, and so it is time for a look back at the month’s best free MP3s that also happen to work well as a single, sequenced mix. This zip file finds the common ground between Purity Ring and ASAP Rocky, has a heart of new wave compliments of Psychobuildings and… More »

This month’s Remixtape begins with a wistful twist (Clams Casino, a Gold Panda redo of Lykke Li, Phone Tag tagging up Small Black’s “New Chain,” Creep working on Planning To Rock) and ends on a pop note (that Star Slinger remix of Alex Winston), with the middle dedicated to stranger and more beat-oriented musics.

WIN WIN – “Air”

After giving us the weird glitchiness of “Couch Paranoia” and golden, feel-good gooeyness of “Waster,” WIN WIN got dreamy and drowsy on the aptly-named “Air.” WIN WIN is Alex Epton, Chris Devlin, and video artist Ryan Sciaino (aka Ghostdad), and they released those first two songs together on a split via Arts & Crafts. “Air”… More »

WIN WIN – “Couch Paranoia” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Experimental pop trio WIN WIN have come back suddenly and swiftly after a near three-year hiatus, dropping “Couch Paranoia” and “Waster” as a digital single earlier this month. Now the band is back yet again with a video for “Couch Paranoia.” Though the track’s title brings to mind a weedhead problem, the video is more… More »

Win Win – “Waster”

Win Win previously released “Couch Paranoia,” the A-side to their new digital 7-inch with Arts & Crafts, and today we get the B-side “Waster.” It’s feel-good, hand-clap-punctuated pop that encourages the sort of adolescent disregard for consequences that can only realistically last for those golden three minutes of bubblegum buzz. “Couch Paranoia” was weird, glitchy… More »

Win Win – “Walls” (Crass Cover)

A wriggling, mutated, discordant funk groove, “Walls” is one of the weirder songs in the huge and storied catalog of the beloved British anarchist punk crew Crass. Win Win, the dance crew led by former Spank Rock producer XXXChange, have included a zippy, catchy cover of the song on their brand new Ones & ZerosMore »

Win Win – “Ones And Zeros” (Stereogum Premiere)

Win Win, the production crew led by former Spank Rock producer XXXchange, debuted with a self-titled album last year, and they’ve just followed it up with a new EP. “Ones And Zeros,” the title trakc and the first thing we’ve heard from that EP, is a jittery dance track with an element of stiff, robotic… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: January & February 2011

After a holiday break and an inclemently weathered January, our Monthly Mix series returns with a two-month/one-mix compilation that sets a defiant tone. If not for the year, then for the persistently re-accumulating, gut-checking frost. The key elements (aside from recency and excellence) are electronics and sequence, with a late-mix flip to stringed instruments, before… More »
