Preview Weezer & Bethany Cosentino’s “Go Away” Video

By Tom Breihan / July 23, 2015 - 12:15 pm

Last year, on their album Everything Will Be Alright In The End, Weezer teamed up with Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino for a bright, catchy song called “Go Away.” That song is about to get a music video, and in grand Weezer tradition, it looks like it’ll be pretty cartoonish. Judging by the 15-second preview that… More »

Cold Specks – “A Season Of Doubt” Video

By Caitlin White / July 23, 2015 - 11:55 am

Last year Cold Specks (aka Al Spx) put out another phenomenal doom-soul record called Neuroplasticity. Spx’s voice is a scratchy, brilliant thing that fits right alongside soul legends, but if you’re wondering how the doom element factors into things, consider that she worked with Michael Gira of Swans on several of the tracks. Today she’… More »

Here We Go Magic – “Falling” Video

By Caitlin White / July 23, 2015 - 11:22 am

Brooklyn future-pop prog-rockers Here We Go Magic are releasing their first new album since 2012’s Nigel Goodrich-produced A Different Ship. This one, their fourth, comes sans a big name producer and was entirely mixed and recorded by the band themselves, hence the title: Be Small. Still, influences of other singular musicians are at work here… More »

Jenny Hval – “Sabbath” Video

By James Rettig / July 23, 2015 - 11:17 am

Sabbath” is one of the more disorienting cuts on Jenny Hval’s Apocalypse, girl, an album designed to disorient. The song itself is about a young girl’s sexual awakening, but the new video for the track chooses to emulate the feelings of bewilderment, wonder, and excitement that go along with that very pivotal time instead of… More »

Watch Weezer Perform With Candy Hearts Frontwoman At APMAs

By Caitlin White / July 23, 2015 - 10:30 am

Though they looked slightly out of place on the lineup, Weezer performed last night at the Alternative Press Music Awards (APMAs) in Cleveland. The most interesting and unusual thing about the band’s appearance is that they were joined by a special guest: Mariel Loveland, frontwoman from New Jersey pop-punk band Candy Hearts. More »

Banned By Chicago Mayor, Chief Keef Says Hologram Show Will Go On In A Secret Location

By Tom Breihan / July 23, 2015 - 10:16 am

Last weekend, Chief Keef tried to play a benefit show for the family of Dillan Harris, a one-year-old who was recently killed by a hit-and-run driver on the South Side of Chicago. (The drivers had apparently just shot and killed Capo, a Keef associate, in a drive-by shooting.) Because of outstanding warrants, Keef can’t come… More »

Minor Victories is a new supergroup made up of Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, Editors’ Justin Lockey, Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, and Hand Held Cine Club’s James Lockey.

Watch Open Mike Eagle, Flying Lotus & Thundercat Perform On Why? With Hannibal Buress

By Tom Breihan / July 23, 2015 - 9:25 am

Flying Lotus performed on the second episode of the great comedian Hannibal Buress’ new Comedy Central show Why? With Hannibal Buress, and he recently announced that he’d become the show’s new in-house DJ. I’m pretty sure that makes Buress the first TV host to have a DJ instead of a bandleader since Chris Rock made… More »

Watch Big Brother’s Ridiculous Grunge-Themed Competition

By James Rettig / July 22, 2015 - 5:58 pm

As someone who obsessively (and sorta regretfully) followed Big Brother for about eight years, I can say without hesitation that pretty much all of their competitions are shit. The producers don’t have the tirelessly mapped-out expertise of The Amazing Race or the luxury of exotic locales like Survivor — they’re pretty much limited to a… More »

Watch Ryan Adams Cover Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These”

By Chris DeVille / July 22, 2015 - 1:52 pm

I never thought I’d say this, but I’d be interested in hearing a Ryan Adams album entirely comprising live acoustic Foo Fighters covers. The basis for this assertion is Adams’ rendition of “Times Like These” — a song he’s been covering for years — performed at Sydney Opera House, recorded by YouTube user TheAussiemusicman, and… More »

EZTV – “Dust In The Sky” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / July 22, 2015 - 12:54 pm

There are traces of so many wonderful bands in EZTV’s DNA: Real Estate’s languid bliss-out guitar music, Girls’ back-to-basics pop songcraft, the Nerves’ punchy New Wave, the Byrds’ twangy jangle. All those factors and more are audible in “Dust In The Sky,” one of many highlights on the Brooklyn combo’s debut album Calling Out. Director… More »

Gem Club – “Braids” Video

By Tom Breihan / July 22, 2015 - 12:38 pm

Massachusetts chamber-pop trio Gem Club released their album In Roses a year and a half ago, but they’re just now getting around to dropping a video for their hushed, lovely single “Braid.” The clip, from director Christian Palmer, is a surreal romantic vision that tells the story of a boy with a reptilian monster mask… More »

Pharrell – “Freedom” Video

By James Rettig / July 22, 2015 - 11:59 am

Pharrell’s limp new single “Freedom” began its life as the first ever Apple Music exclusive, and now the pop star has shared a video for the rest of the world to see. It positions Pharrell as the bringer of this freedom, centering him among a slave uprising, a sweatshop, and in a room filled with… More »

Watch A Trailer For Lou Barlow’s New Album Brace The Wave

By Chris DeVille / July 22, 2015 - 11:45 am

Just yesterday we spoke with Lou Barlow about the 20th anniversary of Kids, and today the Sebadoh/Dinosaur Jr./Folk Implosion/etc. member is back with news of his first solo album since 2009’s Goodnight Unknown. It’s called Brace The Wave, and it’s out this September on Joyful Noise. Watch a trailer for the project below, where you’ll… More »

Despot – “House Of Bricks” Video

By Tom Breihan / July 22, 2015 - 11:30 am

The great New York underground rapper Despot has been destroying other people’s songs for years, but he’s barely released anything under his own name. That could change soon, though. Despot’s “House Of Bricks” single is getting some serious notice, and his long-developing album We’re All Excited may actually come out before we’re all dead. Ratatat’… More »

Watch The Weeknd Debut A New Song In London

By Tom Breihan / July 22, 2015 - 11:02 am

The Weeknd is suddenly, against all odds, a titanic pop star, and his album Beauty Behind The Madness is likely going to be a very big deal when it comes out next month. The album has already given us the hits “I Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills.” And Abel Tesfaye recently debuted a… More »

Watch Battles’ Behind-The-Scenes Documentary The Art Of Repetition

By James Rettig / July 22, 2015 - 10:39 am

Battles are putting out their new album, La Di Da Di, in a few months. They haven’t even shared a song yet, but they have just released a 20-minute documentary called The Art Of Repetition that gives a behind-the-scenes look at the process of creating the record. In partnership with Ableton, you can follow the… More »

HeCTA – “The Concept” Video

By Tom Breihan / July 22, 2015 - 10:37 am

Lambchop have been making orchestral, soul-flavored Americana for decades, so it’s a bit of a surprise that three band members, including frontman Kurt Wagner, have now formed a disco-house side project called HeCTA. But it’s happening, and we’ve already posted the shockingly strong first single “Till Someone Gets Hurt.” “The Concept” is another track from… More »

Matthew E. White – “Vision (No Skin Version)” (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / July 22, 2015 - 9:59 am

Matthew E. White’s tender, sighing orchestral-soul missive Fresh Blood is one of 2015’s greatest underdogs. The record came out in March with spurts and starts of fanfare, but never really seemed to catch fire like a record of this magnitude deserves. Perhaps the new deluxe version, then, will be what sparks interest in White’s gentle,… More »

Watch Modest Mouse Play “Pups To Dust” On Seth Meyers

By Tom Breihan / July 22, 2015 - 9:43 am

Earlier in 2015, Modest Mouse came back with Strangers To Ourselves, their first new album in quite a few years. They’ve been out on the promo trail lately, and last night, those promotional efforts brought them to Late Night With Seth Meyers. On that show, they played the pleasingly ramshackle album track “Pups To Dust.”… More »
