Steve Albini Addresses Edgelord Past In New Interview

About a month ago, the acclaimed Chicago recording engineer and Big Black/Shellac member Steve Albini posted a Twitter thread reckoning with his history of transgressive “edgelord” behavior, including (but not limited to) playing in bands called Rapeman and Run N***** Run in the ’80s, touting his friend’s child pornography magazine in the zine Forced Exposure in 1978, and using a racial slur in a post on the Odd Future message board about the time he shared a shuttle with Tyler, The Creator in 2...

caroline – “IWR”

The eight-piece London band caroline announced today that they’ll release their self-titled debut album on Rough Trade in February. The group plays deeply emotional deconstructed post-rock with heavy doses of orchestral beauty, and people, they are incredible. The Books, Adult Jazz, Sufjan Stevens, and Talk Talk all come to mind, among many other reference points that should have you pressing play on lead single “IWR” as fast as you can.

Ben LaMar Gay – “Aunt Lola And The Quail”

Back in September, Ben LaMar Gay announced his new album Open Arms To Open Us.

Potty Mouth – “Not Going Anywhere”

Last month, Potty Mouth announced that they were breaking up, but not before releasing one final EP, 1% Happier, which is out next week. We heard one track from it, “Contessa Barefoot,” already, and today they’re sharing one more, “Not Going Anywhere.” Despite its title, Potty Mouth are in fact going somewhere — they’re going away — but is the sort of crisp, bratty pop-punk song that makes you wish they wouldn’t. “It’s hard not to feel pressure in this industry,” the band’s Abby Weems said in a ...

Presidents Of The United States Of America Respond To Larry David’s Gripe About “Idiotic” ‘90s Song “Peaches”

On an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm that aired a couple weeks ago, Larry David attended a rock concert thrown by actor Dylan O’Brien, who played an exaggerated version of himself and performed a truly atrocious cover of the Presidents Of The United States Of America’s ’90s artifact “Peaches.” In a meet-up backstage, David confronted O’Brien, asking if he “wrote that ‘Peaches’ song?” and after O’Brien said that he didn’t, and David responded: “What would prompt a person to sing such an idiotic ...

We’ve Got A File On You: Susanna Hoffs

We’ve Got A File On You features interviews in which artists share the stories behind the extracurricular activities that dot their careers: acting gigs, guest appearances, random internet ephemera, etc. By entertainment industry standards, Susanna Hoffs’ career is epic. Of course, you could say she was Succession-style born into her line of work (minus the familial backstabbing). The daughter of writer/director/producer Tamar Simon Hoffs, the Bangles singer and co-founder grew up extremely plug...

Marissa Paternoster – “I Lost You”

Last month, Screaming Females guitarist/vocalist Marissa Paternoster announced plans to release their debut solo album Peace Meter along with the lead single “White Dove.” Now, Paternoster has follow-up single, “I Lost You.” Over a gently skittering beat, layered vocal harmonies, and what sounds like a harpsichord on the bridge, Paternoster forlornly sings about accepting the loss of a relationship (“I guess it’s sad / But it’s true / You don’t care / And I lost you”). Listen below.

Album Of The Week: IDLES CRAWLER

Joe Talbot did not appear on stage with Garbage at Shaky Knees, but he felt like a featured guest. Throughout the veteran alt-rock band’s set at the Atlanta music festival two weekends ago, singer Shirley Manson continually sang the praises of the IDLES frontman, her fellow Shaky Knees performer and recent podcast guest. She commended him as a good man who treats women with respect, a rare beacon of decency within the music industry. She also openly thirsted for him, explaining that it’s OK for ...

Alkohol & „Bierbauch“: Macht Bier wirklich dick?

Als großer Fan von Body Positivity hat mich der Begriff „Bierbauch“ schon immer irgendwie genervt. In meinen Ohren hat er einen negativen Unterton – ein subtiles Urteil über den Alkoholkonsum und die Figur einer Person. Ich bin der Meinung: „Alle Figuren sind Bikinifiguren“, und daher habe ich mich mit solchen Kommentaren immer unwohl gefühlt.  Als Journalistin, die viel über Wellness-Themen schreibt, stellte ich mir irgendwann die Frage, wo dieser Begriff überhaupt herkommt – und ob si...

Greet Death – “Your Love Is Alcohol”

Two years ago, the Flint, Michigan band Greet Death released New Hell, a great album that combined heavy-shoegaze intensity with dream-pop prettiness. In September, they followed that LP with the bleak and lovely new song “I Hate Everything,” an aesthetic left turn that took them into folk-adjacent territory. Today, Greet Death have dropped another new single, and they’ve also announced plans to spend much of next spring out on the road with Virginia screamo greats Infant Island. (I’m friends wi...

PUP – “Waiting” & “Kill Something”

Last year, Toronto pop-punk greats PUP released a banger of an EP called This Place Sucks Ass.

Im Moment möchte ich nämlich nichts an meiner derzeitigen Haarlänge ändern, sondern einfach nur einen neuen Stil ausprobieren.Die gute Nachricht ist, dass gerade einige Hairstyles im Anmarsch sind, die Expert...

Courtney Barnett is releasing a new album, Things Take Time, Take Time, at the end of the week. We’ve heard “Rae Street,” “Before You Gotta Go,” and “Write A List Of Things To Look Forward To” from it already — plus the non-album track Harriet The Spy theme “Smile Real Nice” — and today we’re getting one final single, “If I Don’t Hear From You Tonight.” It’s a warm and inviting song about the fluttering feeling you get when dancing around on a possible new relationship.
