Spotify Reportedly In “Advanced Talks” To Buy SoundCloud

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 21:32:56 +0000

SoundCloud has had a rough go of its move toward monetization, but it’s still the most important and influential service on the planet for unsigned or under-the-radar musicians. Last month, in a Swedish TV interview, Spotify founder/CEO Daniel Ek shared some of his own thoughts on the dilemma faced by SoundCloud at the moment. Quoth […]

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 21:32:20 +0000

Captain Murphy – “Crowned”

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 21:32:06 +0000

Adult Swim and Flying Lotus go way back like Flo Rida’s hairline. The Cartoon Network subset was actually pretty influential in launching Steven Ellison’s career after they took a chance and featured his music when he wasn’t anything but a guy getting started in the LA underground beat scene. I remember bumps from ’06 with […]

Hear “New Globe” From Toro Y Moi’s New Ambient Project PLUM

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 20:57:58 +0000

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 20:24:27 +0000

Run For Cover Records has been around since 2004, but it seems like in the past few years the Boston-based label has reached another level. We named them one of the breakout indie labels of 2014, and the two years since have proven their cultural importance and musical dominance. On 12/14, Run For Cover (alongside […]

Shakai Mondai – “Hikari” (Utada Hikaru Cover) Video

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 19:02:40 +0000

Although recent Band To Watch Shakai Mondai’s cover of J-Pop star Utada Hikaru’s “Hikari” stands on its own without question, it’s perhaps best understood when watched in juxtaposition with the original. Said to be the “mirror image’ of the version made by Hikaru, with its black lights and surrealist themes, it ends up becoming closer […]

Watch Jack White Join Cat Stevens’ First Nashville Show In 40 Years

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 18:24:59 +0000

Jack White joined Cat Stevens onstage last night at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium to perform “Where Do The Children Play.” It was Stevens’ first Nashville show in 40 years, and White wasn’t the only guest he brought on stage.

You Ain’t Heard It Like This Before

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 17:31:40 +0000

Danny Brown is still coming back to Earth. It’s nearing lunchtime, and he’s splayed out on a couch in the lobby of a Manhattan hotel, looking as if he’s just woken up or as if he’s still trying to restore his energy following the previous night’s show. The show in question was at Webster Hall […]

An early taste of the album comes […]

Super Unison – “Broken”

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 17:00:57 +0000

Oakland punk trio Super Unison are very fittingly named after a song by San Diego post-hardcore ragers Drive Like Jehu. They introduced themselves on their blistering self-titled EP with eight minutes of brain-rattling aggression last year and haven’t looked back since. They’re set to drop their debut full-length, Auto, next month, and it’s more deftly […]

Could Rap Music Be Whitewashed The Way Rock ‘N’ Roll Was?

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 16:51:22 +0000

In 1960, black rock ‘n’ roll guitarists like Chuck Berry were among the most vital forces driving popular culture. By 1970, a black rock ‘n’ roll guitarist like Jimi Hendrix was considered a strange anomaly. Over the course of a decade rock music went from being a pan-racial conversation to a serious, studious pursuit for […]

Kraus – “Pitch Fucker” Video

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 16:22:11 +0000

Will Kraus is a 22-year-old noise-pop artist out of Dallas whose End Tomorrow saw release via Flexible Records, an offshoot of Grizzly Bear bassist Chris Taylor’s Terrible Records, earlier this month. The album is a bombastic technicolor headfuck built from insane drums, celestial dreampop surges, and heavily processed vocals. Consider it a cocktail of My […]

The Weeknd – “Starboy” (Feat. Daft Punk) Video

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:34:26 +0000

The Weeknd and Daft Punk’s “Starboy” video — a clip so good it was nominated for an MTV EMA before it was even released — has arrived. Abel Tesfaye’s favored director Grant Singer is back in the fold here, filming Tesfaye smashing up an expensive apartment with a lightsaber-esque glowing cross and then cruising a […]

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:21:11 +0000

Gallant – “Skipping Stones” (Feat. Jhené Aiko) Video

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:18:13 +0000

Powerful crooner Gallant’s Ology is one of the most gorgeous and decadent R&B albums of the year. One of the standout tracks was the Jhené Aiko feature “Skipping Stones,” was was originally born out of his involvement with Red Bull Sound Select. Part of the track’s allure is the incongruity of their styles — Gallant […]

DJ Quik – “Black Friday”

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:10:43 +0000

For decades, the Compton legend DJ Quik has been among our greatest sources of musically advanced, lyrically knuckleheaded West Coast rap music. Earlier this year, he teamed up with Problem for the very good collaborative EP Rosecrans. But on his latest track, Quik is in a more contemplative state of mind, troubled, as so many […]

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:00:19 +0000

I Have A Tribe is the project of Dublin singer-songwriter Patrick O’Laoghaire. O’Laoghaire uses his velvety tenor for beautifully evocative balladry founded in vivid imagery and storytelling. He’s set to drop his debut album, Beneath A Yellow Moon, next month. An early taste of the album comes in the form of “After We Meet.” The […]

Jess Williamson – “See You In A Dream”

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:00:16 +0000

Jess Williamson is set to drop her sophomore album, Heart Song, later this fall. That was an easy sentence to write, but it wasn’t so easy for Williamson to arrive with her album at the ready. After returning home to Texas to record her excellent 2014 debut, Native State, she questioned whether the familiar comforts […]

Chance The Rapper To Perform At White House Christmas Tree Lighting Concert

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:46:34 +0000

Lou Barlow – “The Breeze”

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:32:04 +0000

As a follow-up to 2015’s Brace The Wave, lo-fi icon Lou Barlow has announced a new EP, Apocalypse Fetish, and shared its lead single, “The Breeze.” For the debut track, Barlow pairs a down-tuned ukulele (his weapon of choice on Apocalypse Fetish) with his own voice, which rises above hushed only for a bittersweet chorus. […]

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:23:18 +0000

Legacy rap trio De La Soul dropped their crowdfunded album And The Anonymous Nobody almost exactly a month ago. It’s a varied album that defies the stereotype that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. One of the most far-flung songs of the collection is “Memory Of” featuring slept-on/forgotten UK singer Estelle and the […]

Earlier this year, French space-lounge kings Air released the career-spanning collection Twentyears, and about a month ago, they promoted it by taping a performance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live outdoor festival stage.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:30:54 +0000

Kvelertak’s Nattesferd nabbed Album Of The Week honors earlier this year, and the album’s charm was rooted in how successfully it tipped the scales of their black metal/classic rock balance all the way into Van Halen-esque arena rock revelry. Today they’ve reminded us of their ass-kicking majesty with a video for album highlight “Svartmesse.” Director […]

Fleet Foxes Frontman Gives His Sweater To Longtime Proprietor Of Fansite About It

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:23:12 +0000

Five years ago, a Fleet Foxes fan started a Tumblr dedicated to a very nice sweater that frontman Robin Pecknold was spotted wearing a lot.

“Crest Of Death” is the newest sneak peek at All Your Happy Life, the anticipated follow-up to the Wytches’ 2014 debut Annabel Dream Reader.

Garth Brooks Breaks The Record For Most Diamond Albums

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 12:57:20 +0000

They’re just handing out the diamond certifications like candy these days, aren’t they?
