Watch Jason Isbell Cover B.B. King’s “The Thrill Is Gone”

By Caitlin White / May 19, 2015 - 6:11 pm

Because he’s been through the wringer himself, Jason Isbell is one of the few country singers right now who could manage to give us a decent approximation of B.B. King’s “The Thrill Is Gone.” And because he’s an incredible guitarist with enormous respect for a massive talent like King, Isbell made it a point to… More »

STS x RJD2 – “Doin’ It Right” Video

By Caitlin White / May 19, 2015 - 5:55 pm

What the hell is going on in Philadelphia lately? It seems like every time I turn around there’s another incredible punk act or all-girl band that completely slays indie rock stereotypes. The latest from the city of brotherly love to buck preconceived notions are the soulful and clever collaborators STS and RJD2, who just released… More »

Weed – “Thousand Pounds” Video

By Caitlin White / May 19, 2015 - 5:16 pm

I can’t decide if naming your band Weed is brilliant or lazy, but it seems to be working out well for the Vancouver gloom-rock trio. We premiered their excellent new album Running Back this spring, and now they’ve dropped a video for one of the tracks, “Thousand Pounds.” Directed by Courtney Garvin of The Courtneys,… More »

Watch A Teaser For Coldplay & Peter Dinklage’s Game Of Thrones Musical

By Tom Breihan / May 19, 2015 - 2:33 pm

Game Of Thrones isn’t what anyone would really call a funny show. (Especially after last week’s ending. Yee.) But it does have funny moments, and most of those moments come from Peter Dinklage’s portrayal of Tyrion Lannister. And now Dinklage will get to do some A-list self-deprecation. As part of the money-raising comedy marathon RedMore »

Belly – “White Girls” (Feat. Travi$ Scott) Video

By Tom Breihan / May 19, 2015 - 1:18 pm

I know what you’re thinking, and no, Tanya Donnelly’s early-’90s alt-pop trio is not working with the Houston rapper and producer Travi$ Scott. That would be weird. This is a different Belly. This one is a rapper from Toronto who’s somehow affiliated with the Weeknd; he was on the “King Of The Fall” remix with… More »

Tomorrows Tulips – “When” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / May 19, 2015 - 1:00 pm

On the title track from last year’s When, Burger Records rockers and blatant apostrophe-omitters Tomorrows Tulips run the label’s trademark throwback West Coast garage rock through a ’90s alt-rock churn. I’d cite Yo La Tengo’s immortal cover of the Beach Boys’ “Little Honda,” but it’s a bit like Pavement taking a crack at a similar… More »

Watch The Trailer For We Are Your Friends, Starring Zac Efron As An EDM DJ

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / May 19, 2015 - 12:52 pm

All of the sleaziest dudes who lived in my freshman year college dorm were party promoters. They were the kind of guys who slipped garish neon-colored invitations under your door, the ones who told other guys that they would get into the club for free if they brought along at least four girls. Dudes who… More »

Stream Diamond Youth Nothing Matters + “Thought I Had It Right” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / May 19, 2015 - 12:07 pm

One iota of distortion into “No Control” is exactly when I became a Diamond Youth fan. Their rippling, bummer euphoria is exactly the kind of breakneck, anthemic guitar music that still appeals to me, and their debut album Nothing Matters comes out today. In anticipation of that, we’re premiering the bloody, black and white video… More »

POP ETC – “Bad Break” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / May 19, 2015 - 10:35 am

POP ETC was once a Berkeley-based band known as the Morning Benders; they moved to Brooklyn around the same time they rebranded themselves under their current moniker in 2012. That same year, the band released their self-titled debut LP on Rough Trade Records. We haven’t heard much from POP ETC since then, aside from the… More »

Wet – “Deadwater” Video

By Chris DeVille / May 19, 2015 - 10:22 am

I’ve already rhapsodized about what a perfect pop song Wet have delivered with “Deadwater,” and now the Don’t You single gets a gorgeous video to go along with it. The clip follows Kelly Zutrau through a childlike day of grasping kittens, riding on the back of a friend’s bicycle, and heaving a model plane off… More »

Watch Janelle Monáe & Jidenna Do “Yoga” With The Roots On Fallon

By Tom Breihan / May 19, 2015 - 9:03 am

A few years ago, Janelle Monáe teamed with the Roots to cover Jimi Hendrix on Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night show. Monáe and the Roots have a real chemistry, and she’s always such a great live show, so it was cool to see her back with the Roots on last night’s Tonight Show. And she gave… More »

Watch Father John Misty Perform Two Honeybear Tracks On Seth Meyers

By James Rettig / May 19, 2015 - 8:47 am

The last time Father John Misty was on a late-night show, he brought along canned laughter to announce the release of I Love You, Honeybear on Letterman. A lot has changed since then — Honeybear was well-received, and he’s in the middle of a sold out tour. This means he didn’t need to rely o… More »

Watch Eddie Vedder Sing “Better Man” For Letterman’s Third-To-Last Show

By Tom Breihan / May 19, 2015 - 7:55 am

David Letterman is doing his last-ever Late Show on Wednesday, and during this final run of shows, he’s had some truly wonderful musical guests, including Tom Waits and Ryan Adams. Last night, for Letterman’s third-to-last show, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder did the honors, as we reported he would. (Tom Hanks was the main guest,… More »

Watch Foo Fighters’ Mini-Doc About Record Store Day Gig In Small-Town Ohio

By James Rettig / May 18, 2015 - 8:31 pm

For Record Store Day this year, official RSD ambassador Dave Grohl and the rest of the Foo Fighters played a show at a small record store called the Record Connection in Niles, Ohio, just a short ways away from Grohl’s birthplace of Warren. The band has just shared a short documentary about the event, which… More »

Livestream Billy Corgan And Marilyn Manson’s Joint Press Conference In Chicago

By James Rettig / May 18, 2015 - 8:26 pm

Later this year, the Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson will go on tour together, with the Pumpkins in support of 2014’s Monuments To An Elegy and Manson backing his most recent, The Pale Emperor. Tonight, Billy Corgan and Manson get together in Chicago for The End Times Takeover: A Conversation With Billy Corgan And MarilynMore »

Tamaryn – “Hands All Over Me” Video

By Caitlin White / May 18, 2015 - 5:40 pm

Tamaryn’s incredible new album Cranekiss is the pinnacle of gauzy, maximalist pop, and “Hands All Over Me” is the dreamy, psychedelic new single that I already wrote about as one of the 5 Best Songs Of The Week. Today, that track gets video, an illicit, torrid clip that blurs the line between prurience and spectacle. More »

Nicki Minaj – “Feeling Myself” (Feat. Beyoncé) Video

By Caitlin White / May 18, 2015 - 5:16 pm

Finally, Tidal gives us something we really want: the video for Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé’s Pinkprint collab “Feeling Myself.” As Complex points out, it premiered exclusively on Tidal, but like Rihanna’s “American Oxygen” video, it leaked shortly after. “American Oxygen” was later replaced by an official YouTube stream, as this probably will be too. For… More »

Watch Jay Z’s First Tidal B-Sides Concert In Full

By Chris DeVille / May 18, 2015 - 4:19 pm

So far only bits and pieces of Jay Z’s B-sides concerts for Tidal subscribers have trickled online, including a much-publicized freestyle in which he took aim at Tidal’s streaming music competitors. But now Saturday’s event from NYC’s Terminal 5, the first of two nights, has appeared online in full. Watch it below. More »

Stream Remy Banks higher. + “exhale.” Video

By Caitlin White / May 18, 2015 - 3:28 pm

Remy Banks is dead-set on putting New York back on the map. Along with his roles in the scruffy Queens hip-hop collectives World’s Fair and Children Of The Night, Banks is finally releasing his debut solo project higher. The tape tends toward moodier, introverted beats replete with brass, and Banks channels a golden era New… More »

Watch A Short Film About A Time-Traveling Toilet, Soundtracked By Mutual Benefit

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / May 18, 2015 - 2:56 pm

Band To Watch Mutual Benefit has been laying pretty low since he released his stunning, pastoral full-length Love’s Crushing Diamond back in 2013. Anyone who subscribes to the Keep In Touch 7″ postcard series received a new single from Lee back in March, and in early May he debut “Not For Nothing” on Weathervane Music’… More »
