A musician is selling a gorgeous handmade dice set as part of her new vinyl album

I discovered Jenny Owen Youngs back in 2004, when we played a few shows together. Even then, she was clearly a much better songwriter than me, and I've been following her fantastic career since then. Earlier this year, I wrote about the musical about the musical episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer that Youngs wrote with her ex-wife for their Buffy rewatch podcast. — Read the rest

Here’s Big Sean Covered In 65,000 Bees

Big Sean has a new collaboration out with Hit-Boy today called “What A Life.” But the most interesting part about this is that in the video (also out today and directed by Joe Weil), Big Sean is literally covered in thousands of bees.

Stream Jarvis Cocker’s Suave, Perverse New Album Chansons D’Ennui

Today marks the 20th anniversary of Pulp’s We Love Life, the last album that the band released before breaking up. Former frontman Jarvis Cocker is marking the occasion in a typically atypical way. Two decades after his old band unveiled their final statement, Cocker has released the new LP Chansons D’Ennui, a collection of covers of French pop songs from the ’60s and ’70s.

Drukqs Turns 20

A little more than a decade ago, I was among a few thousand starfuckers jammed into some kind of converted industrial space that wasn’t too far from downtown Austin. It was the last night of SXSW, and Kanye West was putting on a G.O.O.D. Music showcase. If you were inside that big dank brick room, it was only because you’d worked every connection you had, begging and cajoling and frantically emailing. At one point during the show, I felt someone jostling me from behind, and I shoved back. A minu...

What if Kraftwerk made a Dune concept album? Now we know the answer.

Joel Hamburger is a music producer who owns Gödelstring Studios in Brooklyn. As far as I'm aware, he's also the only person to ever make an entire Dune-inspired concept album in the style of Kraftwerk. "The schtick is basically that Kraftwerk were 4 musical mentats," he told me. — Read the rest

U.S. Girls – “Good Kinda High”

U.S. Girls has an unconventional single out today. Called “Good Kinda High,” the lilting track is billed as a collaboration with the late pianist Glenn Gould and is produced by Billy Wild, who sampled Gould performances to create new works with contemporary artists. The finished work is titled Uninvited Guests, and technically it came out last year. But its deluxe edition, featuring the U.S. Girls track, drops today.

Stream Angel Du$t’s Great New Power-Pop Album YAK: A Collection Of Truck Songs

Angel Du$t have come a long way since 2016, when they released their sophomore LP Rock The Fuck On Forever and became a Stereogum Band To Watch. Justice Tripp, frontman of the truly great Baltimore hardcore band Trapped Under Ice, formed Angel Du$t in 2014, and the band features three members of Turnstile, another band from that whole Trapped Under Ice family tree. Early on, Angel Du$t worked as a channel for Tripp’s more melodic ideas, but even though they had a whole lot of Lemonheads in their...

We Love Life Turns 20

It had been three and a half years since Pulp released an album, and everything had changed. The band’s whole existence had already been a long, strange trip — from youthful iterations mostly existing in obscurity in the ‘80s, to beginning to incorporate more dance influences, to the massive breakthroughs during Britpop’s mid-‘90s heyday. After all of that, there was the crash landing of 1998’s This Is Hardcore — the fallout from fame and partying, the ugly and bleak late nights on the other sid...

S.C.A.B. – “Stolen Jag Off Morgan Ave”

In the early weeks of last year, the Brooklyn post-punk quartet S.C.A.B. released their debut album Beauty & Balance. They were all set to take it on the road, but obviously that didn’t happen. Instead, they found themselves stuck at home in NYC. Maybe that led to a little bit of inspiration: Today, the band is back with a new single, and it’s a banger.

Hear The Rolling Stones’ Previously Unreleased Tattoo You Outtake “Come To The Ball”

Right now, the Rolling Stones are mourning the loss of iconic drummer Charlie Watts, but they’re still attending to business, too. The band is currently touring American stadiums, and they’ve also got the new deluxe reissue of the band’s 1981 album Tattoo You. That reissue, announced back in August, features a bunch of previously unreleased tracks, including “Living In The Heart Of Love” and the Stones’ cover of the Chi-Lites’ “Troubles A’ Comin.” Today, the Tattoo You box set has out, and the b...

The Story Behind Every Song On Spirit Was’ Debut Album Heaven’s Just A Cloud

It’s a good time to be a LVL UP fan. Though the band in 2018, all three of its principal songwriters have kept going: Mike Caridi co-runs the label Double Double Whammy and has his own project, the Glow; Dave Benton is Trace Mountains, whose new album HOUSE OF CONFUSION is out today; and Nick Corbo has just released his debut full-length as Spirit Was, Heaven’s Just A Cloud. (Greg Rutkin, LVL UP’s drummer, has played with all three of his former bandmate’s new ventures.)

Change Turns 20

Eventually, even the wild ones settle down. There are always exceptions, those full-fledged grownups in nightlife scenes around the world who’ve maintained a bustling pace of life for decades. But there comes a time for many people when the possibility of youth gives way to the stability of adulthood. Maybe, by choice or necessity, you exchange freedom and flexibility for a steady paycheck and a morning routine. Maybe you buy a house and discover the joys of lawn care. Maybe you have children an...

Dijon is releasing his debut solo album, Absolutely, next week. He formally announced it last week with a live performance video of its opening track, “Big Mike’s,” and we’ve gotten one proper single, “Many Times,” from it too.

How Radiohead Wrote the Perfect James Bond Theme Song

Over the past 59 years, the duty of performing a James Bond movie theme has fallen to the likes of Tom Jones, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon, Bono, Madonna — and most recently, for the latest installment, No Time to Die, Billie Eilish. But one of the greatest Bond themes ever written has never been heard in any of the movies. This, in any case, is the contention of the video essay above, “How Radiohead Wrote the Perfect Bond Theme.” Commissioned for 2015’s Spectre, the second-most recent fi...

“The Hippie Temptation”: An Angst-Ridden CBS TV Show Warns of the Risks of LSD (1976)

To lysergic acid diethylamide, better known as LSD, we owe much of what has endured from Western popular culture of the mid-20th century: consider, for instance, the latter half of the Beatles’ oeuvre. In Revolution in the Head: The Beatles’ Records and the Sixties, Ian MacDonald describes LSD as “a powerful hallucinogen whose function is temporarily to dismiss the brain’s neural concierge, leaving the mind to cope as it can with sensory information which meanwhile enters without prior a...

Countdown to ecstasy: how music is being used in healing psychedelic trips

Jon Hopkins timed his upcoming album to the length of a ketamine high, while apps are using AI music to tailor drug experiences. Welcome to a techno-chemical new frontierTwo hundred psychedelic enthusiasts have converged in Austin, Texas for a “ceremonial concert” on the autumn equinox. People sprawl on yoga mats around a circular stage as staffers pace the candlelit warehouse, jingling bells and spritzing essential oils. While psychedelic drugs are prohibited, some attenders seem in an altered ...

Was hinter dünner werdendem Haar stecken kann & wie du dir damit behilfst

Als ich letztes Jahr einen Termin bei einer Dermatologin vereinbarte, um meine hormonelle Akne ein für alle Mal in den Griff zu bekommen, ahnte ich noch nicht, dass ich danach so viel mehr über meinen Körper wissen würde. Innerhalb von einer Stunde fand ich heraus, dass meine Akne wahrscheinlich eine Folge meines polyzystischen Ovarialsyndroms (PCOS) ist, einer Erkrankung ,an der etwa jede zehnte Frau in Deutschland leidet. Laut Dr. Prudence Knight, einer Online-Ärztin bei Push Doctor, w...

Stephenson, PTMC—Building a Culture

William Stephenson The Play Theory of Mass Communication (1987 edition) (orig. 1967) Parts of this book are veritably littered with sigmas and derivatives, reflecting an avowed "preoccupation" with methodology. The layperson nonetheless can find their way into Stephenson's basic thesis rather easily by way of some of his own public opinion research, which he shares. e.g. Senator McCarthy's approval rating was virtually unaffected by his censure. e.g. In the U.S. Stephenson finds there are two...

Elton John: ‘I can still explode at any moment. I just have terrible feelings about myself’

Despite a dodgy hip, the superstar remains youthful thanks to pop star friends like Dua Lipa – but is still struggling with anger and childhood trauma. He explains how fatherhood is making him a better manA good illustration of Elton John in 2021 is how, last week, he scored the eighth UK No 1 single of his career and also had his right hip replaced. The 74-year-old certainly has his frailties – “my left hip is the hip of a two-year-old, and my right hip is the hip of a 92-year-old” – but is you...
