It's been five long months since Gucci Mane released his last proper album The Return Of East Atlanta Santa. In Gucci Time, that is an eternity, even if Gucci has released a ton of new music since that album came out. Thankfully, our long Gucci drought will end on Friday. As The FADER points out,…

Pinact – “Seams”

Wed, 24 May 2017 15:11:02 +0000

Pinact are a Glasgow punk band with major melodic songwriting gifts. On their debut album Stand Still And Rot, those instincts manifested something like Fidlar's shout-along party music slathered in Dinosaur Jr.'s sonic sludge, but it appears they've cleaned up their sound a bit for sophomore album The Part That Know One Knows. New single…

Daphni – “Face To Face”

Wed, 24 May 2017 14:01:04 +0000

Most of us know Dan Snaith for the liquid, malleable psychedelic pop that he makes with his band Caribou. But Snaith also makes fun, inventive dance music under the name Daphni, though he hasn't released an album through that project since 2012's Jiaolong. Right now, as Pitchfork points out, Snaith is getting ready to release…

The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die – “Built This Pool” (Blink-182 Cover)

Wed, 24 May 2017 13:31:09 +0000

"Built This Pool" is the most ridiculous and therefore most memorable track on California, Blink-182's comeback album from last year: just 14 seconds of revved-up pop-punk showcasing the Mark Hoppus lyrics, "I wanna see some naked dudes/ That's why I built this pool." So it's funny song for the World Is A Beautiful Place &…

Watch U2 Take Over Jimmy Kimmel Live & Play Two Songs

Wed, 24 May 2017 13:19:22 +0000

Right now, U2 have taken their classic album The Joshua Tree out on tour, celebrating its 30th anniversary by playing it in full every night.

Decemberists Members Contribute Original Music To 99% Invisible’s “Anchorwoman Of The Great Alaska Earthquake” Podcast

Tue, 23 May 2017 23:48:32 +0000

"Anchorwoman Of The Great Alaska Earthquake" already sounds like a Decemberists song, so it makes sense that several members of the bookish indie-rockers contributed original music to the recent "Anchorwoman Of The Great Alaska Earthquake" episode of the great design podcast 99% Invisible.

Metallica Rides (Out) The Lightning At A Rain-Soaked Rock On The Range

Tue, 23 May 2017 19:54:52 +0000

Muscle memory is wild, man. James Hetfield reminded his Rock On The Range audience on multiple occasions that Metallica have been thrashing away for 36 years.

Morrissey Releases Statement About Manchester Arena Attack

Tue, 23 May 2017 19:22:58 +0000

Manchester, England is one of modern music's most historically significant cities, in no small part because it gave us the Smiths. ("Oh Manchester, so much to answer for!")

Matthew Barnes, the composer and producer behind the Forest Swords moniker, is the first to tell you that he doesn’t listen to all that much music.

Album Of The Week: The I.L.Y’s Bodyguard

Tue, 23 May 2017 14:53:19 +0000

Death Grips have to be the most love-it-or-hate-it proposition on the musical landscape today. If you're not a fan -- and I'm not -- then they can be a profound irritant. It's not just the intentionally grating blurt-blare of their music. It's the entire package: The album-cover dick pic, the festival no-shows, the sudden breakup…
