Ava Luna – “Steve Polyester” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 21, 2015 - 10:59 am
Ava Luna's third full-length, Infinite House, is exciting because it's inconsistent. Their sound is always challenging and expertly tailored, but this time around, it's so varied that it's hard to make comparisons or dump the record into any preexisting, contemporary categories. Nothing about this record is predictable, nor is it conventional, and giving extra breathing… More »

By Caitlin White / April 20, 2015 - 5:25 pm
English crooner Jessie Ware has one of those majestic voices that only comes around once in a blue moon. It's a gorgeous, brocade alto that sounds just as majestic whether she's backed by a full band or a solitary guitar. Tough Love was an Album of the Week last year, and one of the all-around… More »

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 20, 2015 - 5:10 pm
Detroit hardcore outfit the Armed released their new single "Forever Scum" and its accompanying video today in order to announce their forthcoming untitled full-length.

By Aaron Lindenberg / April 20, 2015 - 3:04 pm
The photograph on the cover of Sam Amidon's latest album, last year's Lily-O, shows a couple of young girls sitting in a sun-soaked pasture, innocent to the band of armed men congregated menacingly just over the hill.

Sheer Mag – “Fan The Flames” Video

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / April 20, 2015 - 2:11 pm
Watching Sheer Mag play a bridge show in Austin was one of the best experiences that I had at this year's SXSW. I'd seen the Philly-based band play more conventional venues, including New York's Bowery Ballroom, but somehow the slipshod presentation of this particular set seemed most appropriate. With no bar or noisy side conversatio… More »
