Steve Gunn – “Wildwood” Video

By Caitlin White / March 11, 2015
Steve Gunn has been quietly climbing out of his role as a backing guitarist for Kurt Vile and into a marquee role of his own.

Azealia Banks – “Wallace” Video

By Tom Breihan / March 11, 2015
In making her new video for "Wallace," a track from her 2014 album Broke With Expensive Taste, Azealia Banks did something different. The video is an interactive piece of work, one that you help control via webcam. Apparently, the way you move your face controls the way her face moves, and your face also… More »

The Spirit Of The Beehive – “I Smell Bud” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / March 11, 2015
The Spirit Of The Beehive's self-titled debut is the kind of murky, densely layered record that is richly rewarding on repeat listens, and one that deserves a much wider audience than it has right now. The Philadelphia band has crafted an album that chooses to stay in the shadows, a storm cloud overhead and with… More »

Yannick Iluga, the Capetown producer known as Petite Noir, just released his debut EP The King Of Anxiety, a collection of his slim, joyous, South African bedroom pop. Dubbed "noirwave," his songs manage to contain a roiling darkness that's always buoyed up by light touches and a frenetic sense of groove. In the newly released… More »

Jozef Van Wissem – “Confinement” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Aaron Lindenberg / March 11, 2015
The music of Dutch composer Jozef van Wissem's can come off as either meditative or menacing. On "Confinement," his relentless lute is adorned by bubbling, barely-there synths and minimal electronic percussion. The track's equally hypnotic new video features gorgeously lit scenes of Van Wissem playing his lute throughout New York City. It's a moody cli… More »

Doe Paoro – “Traveling” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Chris DeVille / March 11, 2015
Futuristic torch-song expert Doe Paoro first captured our attention by combining cutting-edge experimental R&B with a striking, stylized visual aesthetic right out of the gate. She was "Born Whole," but her sound has continually evolved since then, as demonstrated by the spacey EP she recorded with S. Carey at Justin Vernon's woodland Wisconsi… More »

Jacco Gardner – “Find Yourself” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / March 11, 2015
Jacco Gardner is on a mission of self-discovery, and the Dutch producer/multi-instrumentalist finds more than he bargained for in the video for his latest track "Find Yourself." In the Bear Damen-directed clip -- which is one half rainbow-paint-splatter acid trip and one half doomsday '70s roadtrip to nowhere -- the hero in question smokes a… More »

By James Rettig / March 10, 2015
In late 2003, Kanye West performed an early version of "Gold Digger" for an audience at something called the 2nd Annual Dynamic Producer Conference. It was a few months before The College Dropout was released, and almost two years until it showed up on Late Registration, but the bare bones of the song are apparent,… More »

Watch Michael Bolton Play The Michael Bolton Character In An Office Space Re-Edit

By James Rettig / March 10, 2015
One of the more memorable recurring gags in Office Space was that one of the characters was named Michael Bolton, and he's repeatedly asked about it, as I'm sure anyone who shares a name with a celebrity is. Granted, it was a lot funnier when Bolton was still famous and had a hit in the… More »

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Torres will release her new album, Sprinter, in May, and we heard the record's seething first single, "Strange Hellos," at the beginning of this year.

Shlohmo – “Beams” Video (NSFW)

By Collin Robinson / March 10, 2015
After lending his slow-simmering, dark sounds to more popular alt-R&B artists like Jeremih and Banks last year, LA electro-bass producer Shlohmo kicked off 2015 by announcing his sophomore full-length, Dark Red, due later this spring. So far we've heard "Emerge From Smoke" and "Buried," the latter of which received the visual treatmentMore »

By Chris DeVille / March 10, 2015

Greer then spent time playing in Guided By Voices and ended up writing a book about the band later on. Those iconic '90s indie-rock act… More »
