By Michael Nelson / February 19, 2015
Blur's last album, Think Tank, was released in 2003, but they've spent much of the last few years teasing a follow-up, with Damon Albarn saying as far back as 2012 that "there will definitely be another Blur album."

Lower Dens – “To Die In L.A.” Video

By Caitlin White / February 18, 2015
Los Angeles is a city like a poisoned apple. Glistening skin and supple, attractive colors cloak the rotting fruit that lurks beneath the surface. I lived there for five years, and while the lyrics for "To Die In L.A." never specifically reference the city outside the title, the video builds an insidious, absurdist portrait… More »

It's New York Fashion Week, which means that Midtown Manhattan is crowded with enviably attractive people in very nice, very expensive clothing, working hard to make everyone else look like they just climbed out of a garbage can.

Yung – “Nobody Cares” Video

By Caitlin White / February 17, 2015

Watch Lou Reed Call The Beatles “Garbage” And The Doors “Stupid” In Newly Animated Interview

By Tom Breihan / February 17, 2015
Lou Reed was both an avant-rock forefather and a legendary crank, and I sincerely recommend that you spend some time with this Lester Bangs piece about a contentious Reed interview. PBS recently animated an interview that Joe Smith conducted with Reed in 1987, and it has a lot of interesting stuff about what Reed… More »

Kossisko – “This May Be Me” Video

By Tom Breihan / February 17, 2015
The Bay Area rapper 100s released two great mixtapes of nasty, hard-as-fuck pimp-rap, 2012's Ice Cold Perm and last year's IVRY.
