Brad Pitt is dealing with his breakup by becoming a sad art boy. The Daily Mail recently reported that the actor, who's in the midst of divorcing Angelina Jolie, has been spending "up to 15 hours a day" holed up in a friend's art studio, working on a sculpture and "listening to playlists of sad…

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 19:17:48 +0000

Local Natives have shared a cover of the title track off Fleetwood Mac's classic 1979 double-album Tusk. The LA indie-rockers are no stranger to excellent pop covers, having just last year shared renditions of both Beyoncé's "All Night" and Kanye West's "Ultralight Beam."

There Was No Girl As Bold As You: The Overlooked Legacy Of Natalie Merchant And 10,000 Maniacs

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 18:13:51 +0000

Three years is a perfectly respectable amount of time to wait between projects, but the announcement that Natalie Merchant is embarking on a summer tour still has the feel of a comeback. It'll be the first string of dates she's played since she went out in support of her self-titled 2014 album, which really was…

Broken Social Scene Performing On Colbert Next Week

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 17:30:31 +0000

Broken Social Scene will perform on the 3/30 episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. A new BSS album is expected to come out later this year, so does that mean we're getting new music in advance of the late-night appearance? Maybe? Seems likely? Exciting! Last year, they debuted a new track and earlier…

Wavves – “Animal”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 17:09:37 +0000

The Decemberists have made their own festival! It's called Travelers' Rest, and the inaugural edition will take place on 8/12-13 at the Big Sky Brewing Company Amphitheater in Missoula, Montana.

Swet Shop Boys Showed Me How To Embrace Both Sides Of My Culture

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 16:42:56 +0000

There’s a moment in every native-born minority’s development when they first learn they aren’t white. That’s not to say that prior to that discovery they were clueless as to their skin color, but that the significance of the difference doesn’t truly phase you until you’re explicitly presented with it: that being of one identity inherently…

Bonnie “Prince” Billy & Nathan Salsburg – “Wallins Creek Girls”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 16:42:54 +0000

Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Nathan Salsburg -- a guitarist and curator of the Alan Lomax Archive who tours with Joan Shelley's band -- will release a collaborative EP as part of Record Store Day 2017. The EP includes three songs, and the duo shared one of them today. "Wallins Creek Girls" is one of many…

Wiki – “Icarus” Video

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 16:30:40 +0000

New York City rapper Patrick "Wiki" Morales is back with his new single and accompanying visual, "Icarus." The video features Wiki looking like an old wise man walking along the side of an ice-encrusted road and wandering through the woods with a mahogany cane. The video's main setting looks like the ruins of an Irish…

Julien Baker – “Good News (Piano Version)”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 16:24:10 +0000

Julien Baker has contributed a heart-wrenching piano version of her Sprained Ankle track "Good News" for the anti-Trump Our First 100 Days project. You can listen to it below, and make sure to check out her brand new track "Distant Solar Systems" that came out last week. …

Tigers Jaw – “Guardian”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 16:17:09 +0000

Tigers Jaw's excellent 2014 album, Charmer, was recorded while more than half the band's members had one foot out the door. So the Tigers Jaw of 2017 has a pared-down lineup -- the core crew of Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins are all that remains -- but they have the same sort of tight, undeniable…

Discogs Sets New Most Expensive Sale Record With $18K Vinyl

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 16:00:24 +0000

Have we reached peak vinyl? Apparently not. Last year, an original promotional copy of Prince's legendary "Black Album" sold for a cool $15,000, becoming the most expensive record ever sold on Discogs. Now, less than a year later, that record has already been broken. Someone with entirely too much money to spend has just purchased…

Rick Ross Sounds Like A Rap Star Again

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:31:36 +0000

Every rap empire goes into decline eventually, but Maybach Music Group hit its decline phase before it ever really became an empire. Crew figurehead Rick Ross has, over the past few years, slowly slid into his dotage, releasing sleepy and indolent music that didn't seem that concerned with seizing anyone's imagination. I liked Ross' last…

Soccer Mommy – “Last Girl” & “Be Seeing You”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:22:12 +0000

Last year, NYC-via-Nashville musician Sophia Allison put out For Young Hearts -- it wasn't her first release as Soccer Mommy, but it was the most fully-formed to date, and it led us to name her one of the best new artists of 2016. Allison is back with a couple of new songs on a 7",…

Eric Matthews – “Exactly Like Them” Video

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:17:44 +0000

Eric Matthews, one half of the pioneering chamber-pop duo Cardinal, is about to release his first solo album in nine years.

Cat Clyde – “The Meadow”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:08:02 +0000

Following the release of Cat Clyde's single "Mama Said," the Ontario native has shared the gritty and blues-tinged track "The Meadow." There is a mischievous and empowered center to Clyde's new single. The stomping naked drums of "The Meadow" conjure the feeling of a maddening dance circle, something of the likes of Where The Wild

Watch Woods Play In The Woods For Their Take Away Show

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:01:44 +0000

DIY folk-rock institution Woods are one of our great ramshackle lo-fi bands. That makes them a perfect fit for the Take Away Shows, the long-running video series from the French website La Blogothèque, which finds bands playing in the wild, without amplification or special lighting or anything that might take away from the purity of…

Skating Polly – “Hail Mary” Video

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:39:28 +0000

Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse, the two stepsisters behind the Oklahoma City trio Skating Polly, were not yet born when Veruca Salt were taking over alt-rock radio. (Mayo is 21, and Bighorse is 16; they were 14 and nine, respectively, when they started the band.) But they still got Veruca Salt co-leaders Louise Post and…

Hear Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth Deconstruct “Up In Hudson” On Song Exploder

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:15:18 +0000

Dirty Projectors mastermind Dave Longstreth is such a meticulous composer that he's a natural for Song Exploder, the podcast on which songwriters pick apart and explain all the individual parts of their songs. Longstreth is the latest guest, and he appears to talk all about "Up In Hudson," one of the early singles from the…

Kevin Morby – “Come To Me Now”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:14:27 +0000

Kevin Morby, the folk-rocker who used to play in Woods and the Babies, is following up last year's Singing Saw with a new solo album called City Music. Written at the same time as Singing Saw, City Music functions as a kind of urban companion piece to that record. "It is a mixtape, a fever…

Aimee Mann – “Goose Snow Cone” Video

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:14:15 +0000

Aimee Mann's new album, Mental Illness, will be out at the end of the month and we recently published an interview with her on the subject.

Cloak – “Regrow”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 14:01:05 +0000

It's been a good few years since we first heard from the Brooklyn-based electro-rockers Cloak, but fortunately the band is finally getting around to releasing their debut EP We Will All Be Equal Soon. "Regrow," the project's latest single, is as ominously acerbic as everything else we've heard from Cloak thus far, sounding like a…

Vanbot – “Close Enough (Ulan Bator)”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:59:29 +0000

With a full album scrapped and a trip booked to ride the Trans-Siberian Railway, Swedish electro pop musician Ester Ideskog decided that her next record as Vanbot had to come from a wholly organic place that would help alleviate production pressures. Today, Vanbot shares the results of her journey with the single "Close Enough (Ulan…

Watch “God’s Favorite Band” Green Day Play “Still Breathing” On Colbert

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:59:02 +0000

Last night was a big one for '90s guitar-pop legends playing new songs on late-night TV shows. Weezer were on Kimmel to do their new single "Feels Like Summer," while their summer-of-'94 peers Green Day were on Stephen Colbert's Late Show to bash their way through "Still Breathing," a song from their return-to-form 2016 album…

Thurston Moore – “Smoke Of Dreams” Video

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:44:19 +0000

The man certainly has his baggage, but the former Sonic Youth co-leader Thurston Moore still knows how to put together a splintered, magnetic rock song. A couple of weeks ago, Moore shared a great stand-along single called "Cease Fire." And now he's announced a new five-song album called Rock N Roll Consciousness, which he recorded…

Big Walnuts Yonder – “Sponge Bath”

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:41:42 +0000

Almost 10 years since Minutemen's Mike Watt and Tera Melos' Nick Reinhart had the creative spark to begin recording together, the pair's vision has finally come to fruition in the form of Big Walnuts Yonder's self-titled debut, out this May. The band -- a medley of Watt, Reinhart, Wilco guitarist Nels Cline and Deerhoof drummer…

Watch Rivers Cuomo Don A Ridiculous Sun Costume For Weezer’s Kimmel Performance

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:32:22 +0000

Last week, deathless guitar-pop institution Weezer shared the gloopy, synthy new single "Feels Like Summer" and, at SXSW, performed it live for the first time. And as of last night, they've reentered the late-night TV circuit. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, frontman Rivers Cuomo put on a deeply goofy sun costume, and the band played the…

Mike WiLL Made It – “Razzle Dazzle” (Feat. Future)

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:21:17 +0000

Black Lips – “Can’t Hold On” (Prod. Sean Lennon)

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:12:06 +0000

On their last album, 2014's Underneath The Rainbow, Atlanta rockers the Black Lips injected their trademark garage-punk with some Southern boogie, which must have been at least partially in response to working with producer Patrick Carney. Now once again, the BLips have absorbed their collaborator's stylistic tendencies on their latest song "Can't Hold On," the…

Katy Perry – “Chained To The Rhythm (BoatRemix)” (Feat. Lil Yachty)

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:08:00 +0000

Thus far, Katy Perry's big quasi-reggae comeback single "Chained To The Rhythm" hasn't popped off the way she and her team were probably hoping. It topped out at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it's since fallen to #15. But Perry is not going to let this song fade. It's already gotten an elaborate

Brooklyn Venue Shea Stadium Launches Kickstarter To Fund Reopening

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 13:02:42 +0000

The Brooklyn venue Shea Stadium opened back in 2009 and it's one of the few surviving all-ages DIY spaces operating in the borough.
