Taylor Swift has seen her career explode over the past twelve months and she’s done it all while vehemently single and very definitely leaving men off the agenda. The star had become known as something of a bunny boiler for a few years and as she lurched from one disastrous relationship to another, she found […]

The Short, Strange Music Career Of Leonard Nimoy41 minutes agostereogum Leonard Nimoy passed away on Friday at the age of 83. The actor was best known for playing the alien Mr. Spock on the 1960s TV show Star Trek and in multiple associated movies beginning in the late 1970s and running all the way to 2013. But there was much more to him than that […]
Nocturnal Sunshine ? ?Take Me There?43 minutes agostereogum Two years ago on the Fourth of July I saw Maya Jane Coles play a set at one of Verboten’s all-day outdoor parties. It was scalding hot, and the party was held right on the Williamsburg waterfront. That might sound glamorous, but it’s basically just a huge slab of asphalt surrounded by old warehouses. Still, […]
Stream Never Young Never Young EP51 minutes agostereogum The Bay Area band Never Young make an erratic, guttural racket that owes a lot to hardcore without ever quite being hardcore. Their music is dense and loud and chaotic enough that I reached for Enon and Blood Brothers comparisons the first time I heard it. Never Young’s self-titled debut EP is coming out next […]
Kate Pierson ? ?Guitars And Microphones? Video53 minutes agostereogum After nearly 40 years with the B-52s, Kate Pierson has proven the band’s seemingly eternal significance with a feisty solo debut, Guitars & Microphones. The album was executive produced by Sia, with production work from Ima Robot?s Tim Anderson and the Strokes? Nick Valensi on guitar, making for a beefed up take on the group’s […]
Watch Lykke Li Model A Fancy Handbag In A New Video For Gucci1 hour agostereogum Lykke Li’s 2014 album I Never Learn was a dreamy, post-apocalyptic take on a relationship that didn’t just break but shattered into a million pieces. Despite the harrowing undercurrent of sadness, some of the songs are ambiguous enough to be applied to brands, so Gucci decided to create a short video for “Just Like A […]
Haven't had a catchy jam quite like "Call Me Maybe" in months? Well, good news, because Carly Rae Jepsen is back with an infectious earworm, this time called "I Really Like You." It's kind of like the logical next step after that special someone calls you, maybe, so give it a listen and decide: is this as catchy as "Call Me Maybe"? I gotta say, I'm leaning toward yes, because I keep thinking, "I really, really, really, really, really like you."
Curren$y ? ?Alert? (Feat. Styles P)1 hour agostereogum New Orleans weed-rapper Curren$y is almost alarmingly consistent; he cranks out effortless, listenable mixtapes so frequently that it’s hard to be excited about them anymore. Curren$y really fell into his lane when he linked up with veteran rap producer Ski Beatz and made 2010’s great Pilot Talk and Pilot Talk 2 albums. So it’s cool […]
