By Tom Breihan / April 17, 2015 - 5:06 pm
Yesterday, Young Thug released his deeply absorbing Barter 6 album, though he's now saying that it's really just a mixtape and that the real album, called Hy!£UN35, is coming in August. In any case, Thug just shared a video for the strange, bloopy, amazing Barter 6 opener "Constantly Hating," which has a pretty incredible beat… More »

By Chris DeVille / April 17, 2015 - 2:10 pm
We saw a brief trailer for Dope, A$AP Rocky's feature film debut, when it premiered at Sundance. Now a much longer, more detailed trailer has emerged, and it makes the movie look pretty awesome.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

By Tom Breihan / April 17, 2015 - 12:35 pm
If you were some kind of underground artist making a video this week, it was hard to compete. A few big stars on big labels (or with big cable networks backing them) made videos so goofy and fun and entertaining that no indie type could afford to compete. And yet this week's best video still… More »

Watch Faith No More Debut “Sol Invictus” & “From The Dead” In Vancouver

By Chris DeVille / April 17, 2015 - 12:17 pm
Faith No More's comeback tour rolled into Vancouver last night, and the Canucks were rewarded with the debut of two new songs. "Sol Invictus," the title track from their new album, is a slow-burner that builds and builds without ever quite boiling over, while "From The Dead" is, surprisingly, a jangly acoustic number. Watch fan-made… More »

Dej Loaf – “Me U & Hennessy” Video

By Caitlin White / April 17, 2015 - 12:10 pm
Dej Loaf is a spitfire Detroit rapper best known for her no-fucks-given, ominous swag anthem "Try Me." Her fabulous 2014 mixtape Sell Sole came on the heels of a record deal with Columbia, and that major label money is more than evident in the video for one of the tape's more romantic tracks "Me U… More »

Watch Jenny Lewis Sing A Smooth-As-Hell “She’s Not Me” On The Late Late Show

By Tom Breihan / April 17, 2015 - 9:44 am
Last weekend at Coachella, Jenny Lewis pretty much slayed, bringing HAIM and her old Rilo Kiley bandmate Blake Sennett to the stage and ending her set with a version of Rilo Kiley's "A Better Son/Daughter" that I can't stop thinking about. And last night, she used some of that long stretch between Coachella weekends to… More »

Never Young – “Like A Version” Video

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 16, 2015 - 5:21 pm
The Bay Area's Never Young released an unsettling video for the first single off of their recent self-titled EP. "Like A Version" is the kind of post-hardcore song that truly sounds like a successful hybridization of the genre's original form, appropriated and re-worked into something contemporary. Its video was directed by Armando Armas, and it'… More »

John Carpenter – “Night” Video

By Tom Breihan / April 16, 2015 - 12:37 pm
John Carpenter is one of the great B-movie directors of all time, so it's weird to see anyone other than Carpenter himself directing a John Carpenter music video. Nevertheless, it's happened. Carpenter claims that he's effectively retired from filmmaking, and earlier this year, he released Lost Themes, a great album full of the sort of… More »

By Caitlin White / April 16, 2015 - 12:08 pm

It's about a lot of things,… More »

Garbage – “The Chemicals” (Feat. Brian Aubert) Video

By Tom Breihan / April 16, 2015 - 11:36 am
Garbage aren't the most active band these days, but they do make sure to do something new for Record Store Day every year. Two years ago, they enlisted Screaming Females' Marissa Paternoster to help them cover Patti Smith's "Because The Night," and last year they teamed up with Brody Dalle on "Girls Talk." This time… More »

Arca – “Sad Bitch” Video

By James Rettig / April 16, 2015 - 11:22 am
Arca has shared a video for his Xen track "Sad Bitch," another in his series of visual collaborations with digital artist Jesse Kanda. It feels like a sister to his evocative "Thievery" video, featuring the same kind of amorphous, shadowy figure dancing in slow motion. This one grows pustules on their back that cascade into… More »

Watch Tyler, The Creator Talk About Pleasantville On Tavis Smiley

By Tom Breihan / April 16, 2015 - 10:56 am
The PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley never has musical guests, but he occasionally brings musicians onto his show for serious, in-depth conversations. Tyler, The Creator just released his new album Cherry Bomb earlier this week, and he was a guest on Smiley's show last night. It's fascinating to see Tyler sitting there fidgeting i… More »

Ariel Pink – “Jell-O” Video

By Tom Breihan / April 16, 2015 - 10:17 am
Ariel Pink has already worked with the director Grant Singer to make three videos for songs from his 2014 album pom pom: "Put Your Number In My Phone," "Picture Me Gone," and "Dayzed Inn Daydreams." They've all been slow, creepy, and oddly beautiful pieces. That's not the case with Pink's new video for the frantic… More »
