By James Rettig / July 28, 2015 - 10:08 am

Copenhagen punk four-piece Communions impressed us with their debut self-titled EP a few months ago, and they’re back with a video for the release’s sprawling opening track, “Forget It’s A Dream,” to remind everyone that they exist. It starts off with some grainy archival black-and-white footage of a wrestling match, but quickly switches gears to… More »

LIZ – “When I Rule The World” Video

By Tom Breihan / July 28, 2015 - 9:57 am

SOPHIE produced LIZ’s frantic, blippy new pop song “When I Rule The World,” and it’s a fascinating test case for the question of whether PC Music’s whole conceptual jackhammer future-pop aesthetic will work as actual pop music. The song debuted in a Samsung ad, and now it’s got a flashy video from veteran pop-video director… More »

By Tom Breihan / July 28, 2015 - 8:42 am

If you’ve ever seen Rock Of Ages, you’ve seen the terrifying intensity that Tom Cruise brings when he’s pretending to sing songs onscreen. And if you’ve seen that incredible clip of Cruise doing the Yung Joc motorcycle dance on 106 & Park, you’ve seen the absolutely unashamed awkwardness he brings when he’s engaging with current… More »

By Lisa Brown / July 27, 2015 - 5:00 pm

Baton Rouge rapper Kevin Gates may get a lot of attention for his discussions on unusual sexual endeavors, but behind his wild Instagram presence he’s also deemed one of the best rappers working today.

Kehlani – “The Way” (Feat. Chance The Rapper) Video

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / July 27, 2015 - 4:23 pm

If you’ve listened to Surf, then you know that Chance The Rapper is an ideal collaborator; he only chooses the best of the best up-and-comers to work with and rarely overshadows them. Such is the case with “The Way,” a single off of the rising Oakland-based R&B singer Kehlani’s latest mixtape You Should Be Here. More »

Wet – “You’re The Best” Video

By Chris DeVille / July 27, 2015 - 4:02 pm

The transcendent “Deadwater” and its video had us rhapsodizing about Wet’s upcoming Don’t You. The album’s second single will not be not new to longtime Wet fans, but it’s just as good. The Massachusetts trio re-recorded 2013 EP track “You’re The Best,” and gave it a new video to replace the original clip. The emotive-android… More »

Watch A Trailer For Deafheaven LP3

By Michael Nelson / July 27, 2015 - 2:26 pm

Deafheaven’s sophomore record, Sunbather, was my favorite album of 2013, and the follow-up is pretty high on my list of 2015’s most anticipated. The band have been promising LP3 will arrive later this year, and now, they’re sharing some actual music — and providing some actual details. First off, it looks like the record i… More »

Meek Mill – “All Eyes On You” (Feat. Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown) Video

By Caitlin White / July 27, 2015 - 12:25 pm

Meek Mill’s second studio album Dreams Worth More Than Money has been a hell of a comeback so far. After getting out of jail, sparking up a romance with hip-hop’s reigning queen Nicki Minaj, and going straight for Drake’s jugular, Mill seems to be on a mission to assert his dominance. The video for hi… More »

Galantis – “Peanut Butter Jelly” Video

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / July 27, 2015 - 11:37 am

The members of Swedish dance-pop duo Galantis are partially responsible for two of the most quotable pop songs in recent memory — Britney Spears’ “Toxic” and Icona Pop’s “I Love It” — and that’s a fact not easily ignored when you listen to their recent single “Peanut Butter Jelly.” The song floats atop a throwback… More »

Eliot Sumner – “Firewood” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Misha Sesar / July 27, 2015 - 11:02 am

Eliot Sumner has an intensity in the “Firewood” video that reflects the jagged edges of mirrored glass lining the floor beneath her. She’s eerily similar to Sting in terms of looks, sounds, and movements — likely because Sting is her father. Despite all those similarities, Sumner has credibility as a musician in her own right… More »

Florence + The Machine – “Queen Of Peace” / “Long And Lost” Video

By James Rettig / July 27, 2015 - 10:53 am

We’ve already gotten four memorable videos for songs from Florence + The Machine’s latest album, How Big How Blue How Beautiful, but Florence Welch doesn’t seem content to stop there.

Gold Class – “Life As A Gun” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Misha Sesar / July 27, 2015 - 9:55 am

Knife-throwing is no casual sport. You either have great aim or you wound someone. Australian newcomers Gold Class come off as an aggressive post-punk version of the Smiths thanks to singer Adam Curley’s deep, lingering vocals. There’s an innate darkness about their “Life As A Gun” video. It focuses on an intense trust game paired… More »

Watch Kanye West Combat Transphobia And Promote Sock-Shoes On I Am Cait Premiere

By Tom Breihan / July 27, 2015 - 9:03 am

Kanye West might be a member of the extended Kardashian clan, but he doesn’t appear on the various Kardashian-related TV shows that often. This weekend, however, was different. Last night, Caitlyn Jenner debuted her I Am Cait reality show, and West and his wife Kim Kardashian made a quick cameo. The visit to Jenner’s house… More »

Disclosure – “Omen” (Feat. Sam Smith) Video

By Tom Breihan / July 27, 2015 - 8:34 am

The first time Disclosure and Sam Smith teamed up, it was for “Latch,” the first single from Disclosure’s debut album Settle. That was obviously a huge song, a radio hit in America years after its UK release, and it played a tremendous role in making both Disclosure and Smith famous. So it’s a big deal… More »
