“We’re Bush Tetras! We Can Do Whatever We Want.”

There is a hum in New York, and it sounds like Bush Tetras: quick, unfussy grooves; eerie snake-like rhythms; stabs of searing guitar. The longer you live here, the more it moves you. Bush Tetras arrived in the late 1970s and lit a spark that’s been quietly sizzling ever since. Across 30 tracks, three LPs, and four decades, a new box set from Wharf Cat Records reignites the band’s vital legacy as post-punk pioneers. But Rhythm And Paranoia: The Best Of Bush Tetras is no epilogue; Bush Tetras are...

Die Geräusche anderer Leute widern mich an & das zerstört meine Beziehungen

Plötzlich packt mich diese lähmende Angst, die durch laute Musik ausgelöst wird, über die ich keine Kontrolle habe. Wenn ich zum Beispiel Musik von nebenan durch die Wand höre, gerate ich auf einmal in Panik und kann nichts dagegen tun. Deswegen stiegen mir Ex-Freund:innen früher immer aufs Dach (kein Wunder, dass diese Freund:innen jetzt Ex-Freund:innen sind, oder?). Diese unkontrollierbaren Reaktionen habe ich schon seit meiner Teenie-Zeit, nur wusste ich damals noch nicht, dass sie einen Name...

Polo G Interpolates Michael Jackson On New Single “Bad Man (Smooth Criminal)”

The young Chicago rap great Polo G is having a big year. He debuted at #1 with his single “Rapstar,” and he released the excellent album Hall Of Fame.

I Get Wet Turns 20

In 2018, Stereogum’s Michael Nelson painted his masterpiece — a long and mind-blown piece about the identity of party-rock freak Andrew W.K. In that story, which reads more like a work of obsessive true-crime conspiracy theory than rock criticism, Michael got deep into the question of whether the Andrew W.K. of today is the same Andrew W.K. who first emerged on the global stage in 2001. Was an actor now portraying the Andrew W.K. role? Had Andrew W.K. suffered some kind of psychotic break? Who w...

Law & Order: SVU Did A Brooklyn Drill Episode

Last night’s episode of Law & Order: SVU was set in the world of Brooklyn drill. Titled “Nightmares In Drill City,” the ep found assistant DA Dominick Carisi (Peter Scanavino) bringing in his former Special Victims Unit colleagues on a case involving a Brooklyn drill rapper by the name of G. This allowed Ice-T, in his role as Det. Fin Tutuola, to offer a quick primer on the history of the rap subgenre: “The music’s called drill. It’s made famous by Chief Keef out of Chicago. It spread everywhere...

Wie mein Krebs mein Sexleben veränderte

Als die 31-jährige Rebecca Anfang 2019 die Diagnose Brustkrebs bekam, war ihr Sexleben für sie eine willkommene Ablenkung. „Wir fühlten uns plötzlich wieder wie Teenager. Es gibt nichts Besseres, als mit deiner eigenen Sterblichkeit konfrontiert zu werden, um dich lebendig zu fühlen – und nichts gibt dir ein lebendigeres Gefühl als Sex“, erzählt sie. „Durch den Krebs fühlte ich mich von meinem Körper im Stich gelassen, und der Sex war meine Art, wieder mit ihm Frieden zu schließen“, sagt sie. ...

Nein, er ist keine Art Superheld; er tut einfach die Dinge, die ich nicht tun kann, damit wir beide glücklich und gesund bleiben. Das war nicht immer so. Wir lernten uns beim Wandern in den Bergen kennen und verliebten uns bei einer Flasche Rotwein und einem nächtlichen Kinobesuch ineinander. In der Zwischenzeit hat sich aber fast alles in unserem Leben verändert. Nichtsdestotrotz sind wir immer noch s...
