Boy Scouts – “A Lot To Ask”

Boy Scouts, the project of Oakland musician Taylor Vick, is releasing the new album Wayfinder next week. Its title was inspired by Sallie Tisdale’s book Advice For Future Corpses (And Those Who Love Them): A Practical Perspective On Death And Dying, which led Vick to reflect on her relationship with music. “For my whole life, music has been a crucial part of my identity and how I relate to the world,” she says. “The act of making music has been my wayfinder during the past year.”

Bright Magic, the new LP from English post-rock band Public Service Broadcasting, is a concept album about the history and myths of Berlin.

Girlhood – “4AM”

The London pop duo Girlhood’s self-titled debut was one of 2020’s low-key pop pleasures. Today, almost a year after the album’s release, Tessa Cavanna and Christian Pinchbeck are back with a new one-off track called “4AM” that sees them once again artfully merging ’90s soul and R&B with the concurrent beat-driven electronica sounds of that moment. Despite the aggressive tone of the big beat movement, the rhythm here is typically understated and gliding. I imagine Jorja Smith’s records might have...

#TrackoftheDay: “El Tambor de la Alegría”

The recent release of this album, Ritmo, is under the name of just the bandleader, Generoso “Tojo” Jiménez. But the original 1957 release was released from “Tojo y su orquesta (Tojo and His Orchestra).” So that’s what we’re going with. Also, the full title also includes “(Tamborito)” tacked on the end, to indicate the style of song. And lastly, the song features Cachao, a frequent collaborator with Tojo, and credited by Wikipedia (which is always right) as “co-creator of the mambo.” I mean…that’...

A Composer Breaks Down The Music Theory Behind Nirvana’s “In Bloom”

This Friday is the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s groundbreaking Nevermind, an album that forever transformed the pop music landscape. The album’s furious rock anthems “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “Come As You Are,” and “Lithium” made everything else being played on the radio at the time seem scrawny and frivolous by comparison. In the ensuing three decades, countless words have been written about how Nevermind mainstreamed the sound of grunge by emphasizing emotional delivery over tonal precision....

Beach Fossils Reworked Their Songs As Jazz Piano Ballads For New Album The Other Side Of Life

Beach Fossils’ sound evolved quite a bit over the course of the 2010s, from a dreamy ragtag lo-fi to a more mature, immaculately sighing form of guitar-pop. None of that prepared us for the band’s radical transformation on the forthcoming The Other Side Of Life: Piano Ballads. As the title implies, the album finds Dustin Payseur reimagining tracks from across Beach Fossils’ catalog as jazz piano ballads seasoned with saxophone, upright bass, and brushed drums. Judging by lead single “This Year,”...

Alt-J – “U&ME”

For a while there in the first half of the 2010s, the Leeds art-rock band Alt-J seemed like one of the biggest, most influential acts in music.

Scowl – “Bloodhound”

The Santa Cruz band Scowl is a key part of a resurgent Bay Area hardcore scene; earlier this summer, Scowl were one of the bands who played the massive Gulch/Drain/Sunami San Jose show. Scowl’s sound is fast and intense, a whole lot closer to punk than to metal. They’ve got a gift for writing about shitty day-to-day oppressions; “Retail Hell,” the opening track from their 2019 EP Reality After Reality…, is some real shit. Today, Scowl have announced plans to release their debut LP How Flowers Gr...
