What Do Hybrid Performances Look Like After COVID?

It may be counterintuitive, but the consensus view is the best way to produce the emotional intensity of a live performance is to create programming distinctly different from the work being done onstage. – San Francisco Classical Voice

Sitcom – “Wakey Jakey”

Jake Lazovick is releasing his second album as Sitcom, Smoothie, at the end of the week. We’ve already heard some great tracks from it, including “Gutter” and “Kiss My Baby,” and today he’s back with one more, “Wakey Jakey,” which starts out soft and sputtering before building into something of a vibey odyssey, with chirpy Lazovick vocals blending into a whole lot of moving parts. Check it out below.

6 Deko-Influencer erklären, wie sie ihrem Zuhause Freude einhauchen

Steht uns ein weiterer Lockdown-Winter bevor? Das weiß derzeit noch niemand – aber umso wichtiger ist es, unseren eigenen vier Wänden jetzt die Freude einzuhauchen, die uns bis in den Frühling über die Runden bringt.  Wenn wir von „Freude“ sprechen, meinen wir nicht unbedingt kunterbunte Farben (obwohl das natürlich absolute Geschmackssache ist): „Mit Freude dekorieren“ heißt, Farben und Texturen so einzusetzen, dass ein Raum positive Emotionen erweckt und einladend wirkt. Das ist wie eine Do...

Scowl – “Seeds To Sow”

In a couple of short weeks, the Bay Area hardcore beasts in Scowl will release their full-length debut How Flowers Grow. I have heard the album, and it rocks extremely hard. If you’ve heard the first two singles, you’ve probably already figured this out. “Bloodhound” and “Fuck Around,” the latter of which features Drain’s Sammy Ciaramitaro. Both absolute face-peelers. Today, Scowl have shared a third song, and it shows a different side of what they can do.

Megan Thee Stallion’s Mixtape Goes Harder Than Most Albums

The term “mixtape” has meant a lot of things over the past few decades. Once upon a time, mixtapes were literal cassette tapes put together by DJs. The big-name DJs might have exclusive drops or verses or remixes; the others just had to show off by combining hot tracks as compellingly as possible. Later on, “mixtape” just became a term for any rap album that was available for free on the internet. These days, when every piece of music is available for basically-free on the internet, the differen...

The Awe-Inspiring But Tragic Story of Africa’s Festival In The Desert (2001-2012)

“Mali’s gifts to the world of music are lavish and legendary,” Nenad Georgievski writes at All About Jazz, though the world knew little about Malian music until American musicians began partnering with players from West Africa. In the 1980s, Stevie Wonder began touring with Amadou and Mariam, helping to popularize their form of Malian blues. In 1994, Ry Cooder recorded and released Talking Timbuktu with Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré, whose “desert blues… was unconcerned with boundarie...

Earlier this year, the expansive New York indie wanderer Cassandra Jenkins released her album An Overview On Phenomenal Nature. In a few weeks, she’ll follow that LP with (An Overview On) An Overview On Phenomenal Nature, a collection of outtakes and alternate tracks that she recorded with Bonny Light Horseman leader Josh Kaufman.

The 40 Best New Bands Of 2021

Only in the past few months has seeing shows become a viable option once again. Thus, just like last year, it’s been difficult to figure out which new artists hold up on the road, or which ones have such a spectacular live show that it forces you to reconsider their recorded output. But we here at Stereogum are still as determined as ever to compile our annual Best New Bands list, in order to provide a look at the musicians that make us most excited about the future and organize them all in one ...

Funk maestro Ronnie Wilson, co-founder of The Gap Band, RIP

Ronnie Wilson, co-founder of legendary R&B-funk group The Gap Band, died yesterday at age 73. A fantastically talented artist, Wilson wrote music, sang, played flugelhorn and trumpet, and keyboards for the group. From Rolling Stone: Ronnie was the oldest of the three Wilson brothers — Ronnie, Charlie, and Robert — with the siblings forming the Gap Band in the mid-Seventies; their band name was an acronym for Greenwood, Archer, and Pine streets, site of the 1921 Tulsa race massacre and the...

Können wir bitte aufhören, uns für Krankmeldungen schuldig zu fühlen?

Letztens schrieb ich im Homeoffice über ein Dutzend wichtiger E-Mails an einem Tag. Obwohl das nur ein Bruchteil der Menge an E-Mails war, die ich sonst so abschickte, zerbrach ich mir darüber kaum den Kopf; viel bedenklicher fand ich, dass ich mich danach überhaupt nicht mehr an die E-Mails erinnern konnte. Das lag daran, dass ich hohes Fieber hatte und an dem Tag quasi im Delirium war.  Warum hatte ich mich nicht einfach krankgemeldet und eine automatische „Out of office“-E-Mail-Benac...

Madness in her method: Did Lady Gaga really stay in character for 18 months?

Lady Gaga inhabited her role in upcoming drama House of Gucci off screen and on for a year and a half. Was the ‘psychological difficulty’ she suffered as a result worth it? A Star Is Born was both a blessing and a curse for Lady Gaga. A blessing because it put her at the centre of a commercially successful, Oscar-nominated film, thereby rocketing her to the top of a profession of which she had very little experience. A curse, too, because she was essentially just playing herself; a singer who we...

Boygenius Announce First Show In 3 Years

In 2018, Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus banded together to form a supergroup called Boygenius. They released one great EP, and they toured together, with all three artists playing solo sets and then coming together as Boygenius at the end. Since that tour wrapped up, the members of Boygenius have reunited to sing backup on each other’s solo records and on Hayley Williams’ “Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris.” But they haven’t played any Boygenius live shows. In a couple of weeks, they’ll rea...

Jenny Lewis – “Puppy And A Truck”

During the pandemic, Jenny Lewis found plenty of ways to stay busy. She released a bunch of collaborations with art-rapper Serengeti. She performed with her old Rilo Kiley bandmate Blake Sennett for the first time in years. She got together with Bill Murray to cover Drake. Now that most of us are outside and doing things, Jenny Lewis has been especially busy opening Harry Styles’ arena tour.
