Giorgio Moroder continues hitting ’em out of the park with the third teaser from Déjà vu, his forthcoming album featuring guest vocal performances from Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Sia, and on “Tom’s Diner,” the one and only Britney Spears. The influential pop star sounds more engaged with the recording than she has in years, equally playful […]
Wet is a New York-based trio set to release their debut LP Don’t You this fall via Columbia, and with the first single, “Deadwater,” the band set their own deliberate pace, a promising sign for a band so young in their genesis.
Listen to Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s second great single from the upcoming Multi-Love above. “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone” finds the band still coming into their own. As their sound continues to lean towards the lo-fi end of the spectrum, their voice is becoming crystal clear. Multi-Love is out May 26 on Jagjaguwar.
In a refreshing twist, last year Run The Jewels grew from a cult-favorite to legitimate crowd favorites, delivering one of the most sought-after performances at both BUKU and Coachella this year. For Record Store Day 2015, El-P and Killer Mike – being the beautiful people they are – have shared a new track, “Bust No Moves” featuring Arkansas rapper […]
Giorgio Moroder’s new album Dejà vu features the influential producer working with some of the best vocalists, pop and otherwise, of the past quarter-century. On the title-track, he partners with “Chandelier” singer-songwriter Sia, and the two reflect on the past, musical and personal, to create a truly cathartic experience. The song recalls many previous top-40 hits, […]
On “Dark Bird Is Home,” the title-track off of The Tallest Man On Earth’s new album (out May 12 on Dead Oceans), Kristian Mattson finds himself trying to be there for the people he cares for, all while falling apart himself. “Suddenly, the day gets you down / but this is not the end,” he sings […]
Forgive the obnoxious radio I.D. tags, but “Ryderz” emerged over the weekend, the second track to be revealed from Hudson Mohawke’s forthcoming Lantern, and is immediately one of the best electronica cuts of 2015. Best known as one-half of TNGHT (as well as his work on Yeezus), “Ryderz” presents an interesting development in HudMo’s progression. The song […]
Vic Mensa gets the biggest co-sign a rapper can get in 2015, taking the lead on this absolute banger, featuring a verse and production by Kanye West (the song also features production credits for Smoko Ono, Mike Dean, and Stefan Ponce). On “U Mad,” Mensa sounds like he is in his element, not at once […]
While A$AP Rocky has been away from the music scene, it can be easy to forget how big a force he was from 2011-13. The Live.Love.A$AP mixtape released in 2011 was one of the year’s best rap releases, free or otherwise. He followed that up with a spot performing with Rihanna during the opening of the VMAs, […]
From Not Now, out May 19 via Terrible Records. Regal Degal are not breaking new ground, but they are building something new. There’s a hint of the washed out guitar sounds of Wild Nothing, while the song’s melody flows smoothly between the cracks. The Not Now teaser also features previously released, Halcyon Digest-esque, single “Pyramid Bricks.”
