Eddi Front – “Elevator” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / May 21, 2015 - 9:59 am

Eddi Front’s “Elevator” glides in like a dream. Ivana Carrescia hasn’t missed a beat in the three quiet years since her debut EP, picking up the same woozy, understated headspace that made her first few songs so memorable. The video for the track is a beautiful, evocative thing. It begins with toes curled, peeking out… More »

Hudson Mohawke – “Indian Steps” (Feat. Antony) & “Scud Books” Video

By Tom Breihan / May 21, 2015 - 8:49 am

The UK producer Hudson Mohawke is a few weeks away from releasing Lantern, his first new solo album in what feels like forever. We’ve already heard the early tracks “Ryderz” and “Very First Step,” with Irfane. And given that HudMo has lately put in work with people like Kanye West and Pusha T, it’s not… More »

Watch The Tallest Man On Earth’s Elated “Sagres” Performance On Conan

By James Rettig / May 21, 2015 - 8:11 am

While Letterman was giving his swan song over on CBS, most of the other late-night shows still chugged on (though not without paying tribute to the host, at least in Conan’s case), which meant that a presumably deflated viewership tuned in to see the Tallest Man On Earth bring their latest album, Dark Bird IsMore »

Watch Foo Fighters Perform “Everlong” For Letterman’s Final Show

By James Rettig / May 21, 2015 - 7:50 am

David Letterman wrapped up a 33-year-long late-night career last night, and brought out one of his favorite bands to do his favorite song to put a capper on the night. Foo Fighters — who did a week-long residency on the show last year after the release of Sonic Highways — played “Everlong,” which they performed… More »

Kevin Gates – “Khaza” Video

By James Rettig / May 20, 2015 - 5:10 pm

Potential dog fetishist and cousin fucker Kevin Gates put out a song called “Khaza” a few days ago, and he’s followed that up with a homemade video for the track. It seems to have been shot entirely at his mansion by the water in Louisiana — he hangs out with his crew, records the vocal… More »

Ducktails – “Headbanging In The Mirror” Video

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 4:50 pm

Real Estate member Matt Mondanile also makes magnificently moody, ambient psychedelia as Ducktails, and today he’s released the video for “Headbanging In The Mirror.” The track is a leisurely, meandering thing, and Mondanile also travels in the Rose Schlossberg-directed clip, wandering around Los Angeles in his car. At one point he plays his guitar while… More »

Watch Justin Vernon Discuss His Eaux Claires Festival On Minneapolis Local News

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 3:04 pm

It’s always funny when an indie internet star like Bon Iver crosses over to the local news, and here he is in a glowing interview from local Minnesota channel Kare 11. The subject, of course, is Vernon’s inaugural Eaux Claires festival in July. Kare’s anchor is beyond stoked that Vernon stayed in Eau Claire, Wisconsi… More »

Heather Woods Broderick – “Wyoming” Video

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 2:54 pm

The lead single off Heather Woods Broderick’s new solo album Glider, “A Call For Distance,” is sprawling and pristine, loping through New Age, jazz, and folk with ease. Broderick followed it up with “Wyoming,” an even more expansive, woozy song that evokes the flat, hot plains of its namesake state. My mom grew up i… More »

Snoop Dogg – “California Roll” (Feat. Stevie Wonder & Pharrell) Video

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 2:49 pm

Stevie Wonder has been recording a lot of collaborations lately, and it’s gotten to the point where (not joking here) Jason Derulo just put him on a song with Keith Urban. But if anyone can recognize the honor and power of a Stevie Wonder guest appearance, it’s the old soul-head duo of Snoop Dogg and… More »

Migos – “Origin” Video

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 2:26 pm

Legal issues are making it a little harder to predict when we might get to hear YRN: The Album, the official debut from Atlanta rap stars Migos. But the group continues to pump out music, and now they’ve got a new track called “Origin,” with a video attached. On the song, the members of the… More »

Watch The Full Trailer For Amy, Asif Kapadia’s Amy Winehouse Documentary

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 1:44 pm

Amy Winehouse’s tragic death at 27 is one of the greatest losses the music world has seen. To honor her legacy, the BAFTA award-winning director of Senna, Asif Kapadia, has constructed a documentary about the singer mostly comprising unreleased archival footage. We’ve seen a short teaser for the doc, but now a full official trailer… More »

Lieutenant – “Believe The Squalor” Video

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 12:55 pm

Lieutenant is the side project of Foo Fighters/Sunny Day Real Estate bassist Nate Mendel, and back in January we premiered the downtempo, melancholic single “Believe The Squalor.” It’s a soothing, spiraling track and indicative of the rest of the album If I Kill This Thing We’re All Going To Eat For A Week, which feature… More »

FFS – “Johnny Delusional” Video

By Chris DeVille / May 20, 2015 - 12:34 pm

The Franz Ferdinand/Sparks collab FFS have released a video for their darkly clever dance-punk/New Wave hybrid “Johnny Delusional.” The clip casts Alex Kapranos and Russell Mael as dweeby office drones flailing for attention from the ladies in their vicinity. It’s doing its job of enticing me to check out FFS’ self-titled LP, which is coming… More »

Meek Mill – “Monster” Video

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 11:41 am

Meek Mill’s new single “Monster” was already a total banger, but it just got even better. Director Spike Jordan‘s new “Monster” video goes all the way period-piece, with Meek and his friends staging an ’80s-style “Welcome Home Meek Mill” party at a roller rink. The time-specific fashion is absolutely on point, and you can just… More »

Watch Charli XCX Sing “Boom Clap” With Nile Rodgers In NYC

By Chris DeVille / May 20, 2015 - 11:37 am

Yet another new streaming music service called MixRadio launched in NYC last night, and Charli XCX was there to sing a stripped-down, busker-style “Boom Clap” with the legendary Nile Rodgers holding it down on guitar. Watch fan-made footage below. More »

Night Beds – “Tide Teeth” Video

By James Rettig / May 20, 2015 - 11:12 am

Turns out last month’s Night Beds’ single “Tide Teeth” was the precursor to a new full-length. That new song was a pretty big change in sound from his 2013 debut, Country Sleep, trading in woodsy folk for slippery late-night-drive R&B, and the new album seems like it will be more of the same: Winston Yelle… More »

Triathalon – “Usher Surfing” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / May 20, 2015 - 11:08 am

Last year, Savannah four-piece Triathalon put out their sunny, charming full-length debut Lo-Tide. Since then, they’ve been on tour, and are currently putting the finishing touches on their followup, but they’re looking back for now with a new video for Lo-Tide highlight “Usher Surfing.” The video is a fuzzy, shimmering mirage — pools of blue… More »

Alex Winston – “Careless” Video

By Caitlin White / May 20, 2015 - 10:49 am

Alex Winston’s best single was “Sister Wife” off a 2011 EP of the same name. It’s what drew me into the New York-via-Detroit singer’s world, a weirdly catchy pop song about incest that was accompanied by this equally bizarre video. Winston manipulates her voice from bratty bubblegum to dramatic diva in one fell swoop, a… More »

The Mountain Goats – “The Legend Of Chavo Guerrero” Video (Feat. Rob Corddry & Chavo Guerrero)

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 10:48 am

Earlier this year, when the Mountain Goats were getting ready to release their great wrestling-themed album Beat The Champ, I took frontman John Darnielle to his first pro wrestling show in 35 years. He didn’t want me to put any details in the story, but he was getting ready to get his hair cut into… More »

Watch Shamir Go Acoustic In His Take Away Show

By Tom Breihan / May 20, 2015 - 9:27 am

Yesterday, Shamir released his debut album Ratchet, a great record of ebullient dance-pop. But Shamir wanted to be a country singer before he became a rising indie star, and his songs still work when you strip away all the cowbells and strutting basslines. Shamir proves that in the latest Take Away Show, the video serie… More »
