King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – “All Is Known” & “Beginners Luck”

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 03:09:15 +0000

They might just do it. At the end of last year, Australian psych-rock wrecking crew King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard announced that they would release a whopping five studio albums in 2017. So far, they've given us four: Flying Microtonal Banana, Murder Of The Universe, Sketches Of Brunswick East, and Polygondwanaland. And now they've…


Wed, 13 Dec 2017 02:28:27 +0000

We just named Brockhampton's Saturation II one of the best albums of 2017, but Brockhampton's 2017 isn't over yet. The rap collective/boy band are about to finish up their big trilogy this week with Saturation III, which may or may be their last studio album, and today they've shared its first single. "Boogie," which once…

Watch Haim Sing About Hanukkah

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:22:56 +0000

Today is the first night of Hanukkah, which I totally didn't realize until this very second because I am a bad Jew. The Haim sisters, on the other hand, are apparently much better Jews. Not only are they celebrating Hanukkah -- or, as they're calling it, "Haimukkah" -- but they also wrote an original Hanukkah…

Why Concert Photographers Were Offended By The Killers’ On-Stage Pledge To “Take Care Of” Their Photographers

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 21:24:24 +0000

The Killers are among the acts who now only let their own photographers shoot their shows, one of many recent challenges facing the profession. Few concert photographers were comforted this weekend when Brandon Flowers, lead singer of arena-rockers The Killers, made a brief speech on stage saying photographers were "welcome" and "respected," because…

In Memoriam: Bands We Lost In 2017

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 19:04:34 +0000

We are well into listmas season which means it's time to take a break from asking our favorite songwriters about fidget spinners so we can watch a sad video. This is the 10th annual Oscars-style montage of band breakups that I have put together with Matt Neatock, and no it has not gotten old: we…

10 Protest Songs That Defined 2017

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 18:13:43 +0000

Whichever side you’re on in the "art is inherently political" debate, there are certain eras wherein political turmoil overwhelmed artistic output. From the '60s through the present day, there has been music made to protest things like war, civil rights violations, the criminalization of drugs, police brutality, mass shootings, and pretty much every president who…

Stream America’s Hardcore Volume 4 Compilation

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 17:19:42 +0000

We're currently living through a very good time for DIY hardcore -- partly because there are a lot of great bands out there and partly because resources like Bandcamp make it a whole lot easier for the uninitiated to find those bands. Since 2010, the Boston label Triple B has been collecting music from some…

Album Of The Week: Lemuria Recreational Hate

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:42:17 +0000

The Buffalo band Lemuria didn't release their debut album until 2008, but they started in 2004. And they've always sounded something like 2004, or at least like my version of 2004. That means they sound like Spock haircuts, like H&M sweaters, like road trips in beat-up cars that still have tape decks instead of CD…

MGMT – “When You Die” Video

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:38:27 +0000

Loma – “Relay Runner”

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:37:40 +0000

Band To Watch alumni Cross Record dwell on a Texas ranch making eerie, tumbleweed-strewn post-rock epics. So it only makes sense that band braintrust Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski formed a trio with Shearwater mastermind Jonathan Meiburg, their fellow Texan and a musical kindred spirit known for his own darkly grandiose compositions. Their new group,…

Austra – “Change The Paradigm”

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:15:20 +0000

At the beginning of the year, Austra released their excellent new album Future Politics -- we named it Album Of The Week when it came out -- and today the Katie Stelmanis-fronted band has shared a leftover track from the album called "Change The Paradigm." It's a throbbing, dystopian-sounding song about rewriting narratives. Here's what…

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:06:00 +0000

Back in 2014, before the two of them became world-conquering stars, Chance The Rapper and SZA teamed up on "Child's Play," a track that appeared on SZA's Z EP.

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:00:04 +0000

We were impressed with Canadian folk-rocker Jesse Marchant's 2014 track "Every Eye Open," and now it's time to check back in.

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 14:35:18 +0000

We know that Jack White has been working on a new solo album, and today he's shared a new piece of music that's dubbed "Servings And Portions From My Boarding House Reach." It's not a proper single, exactly, but a sound collage featuring snippets of songs and noise. Or maybe it is a song and…

The 40 Best Rap Albums Of 2017

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 19:20:52 +0000

Streaming changed things. 2017 was the year that rap once again reaffirmed its stranglehold on the collective imagination of America's youth. Like the moment when Billboard first started using Soundscan and inadvertently proved the massive popularity of N.W.A, the streaming services of the world showed just how powerful this music remains. Rap dominated streaming charts.
