YNW Melly – “Mixed Personalities” (Feat. Kanye West) Video

Kanye West's last two guest appearances were on songs from 6ix9ine and the late XXXTentacion. So maybe it's progress that his newest collaboration is with a young rapper who, at least as far as we know, has no history of victimizing young women (though he does have a gun charge in his not-too-distant past). West … More »

Stream Aesop Rock & Tobacco’s New Album Malibu Ken

Way back in 2008, idiosyncratic indie-rap legend Aesop Rock teamed up with far-out synth-gloop producer Tobacco, one half of former Aesop Rock tourmates Black Moth Super Rainbow, on a song called "Dirt."

Stream Future’s New Album The WIZRD & Watch Him Do “Crushed Up” On Colbert

Stream DAWN’s New Album new breed

Years ago, the former Danity Kane and Diddy-Dirty Money member Dawn Richard broke away from the major-label world and started releasing oblique, experimental space-pop records on her own -- sometimes under her own name sometimes as D∆WN.

Stream Monplaisir’s The Agreement

Monplaisir come from the French city of Lyon, and they play a tingly, romantic form of indie rock. There's a lot of melody to the band's sound, but it's shaped out of eerie, ringing, vaguely discordant guitar sounds. The band's style reminds me a bit of Built To Spill or Unwound, and we don't get … More »

Stream Tree & Vic Spencer’s New Album Nothing Is Something

A few years ago, the Chicago rapper and producer Tree made a name for himself. His style sounded grizzled and hard-earned -- thoughtful lyrics, ragged voice, seen-it-all delivery. And his production style, which he called "soul trap," involved expertly chopped-up samples and bone-hard swells of bass and drums. This was potent stuff; I loved his … More »

Stream RetcH’s New Album Richer Than The Opps

New Jersey rapper RetcH delivers his lyrics in a raw, scraggly half-grunt that has always impressed me. He's a gifted technical rapper and an evocative writer, but his greatest gift will always be that wounded creak of a voice. Last year, RetcH beat an armed-robbery case that threatened to send him to prison … More »

Stream Toro y Moi’s New Album Outer Peace

Toro Y Moi mastermind Chaz Bundick has had a fascinating, fluid career. In the decade-or-so that he's been in the public eye, Bundick has moved among different musical worlds: Fractured bedroom-pop, streamlined but idiosyncratic dance music, mutant R&B, fuzzed-up power pop. He always sounds like himself, but he draws on different sources every time, and … More »

Spider-Man’s Christmas EP Is Here

If you enjoy superhero movies at all and haven't seen Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse yet, you have to get on that. Aside from all the creative ways they bend the movie's animation style, it also lives up to the hype from a story perspective. On some level it's an origin story for Miles Morales as … More »

Stream The Vox Lux Soundtrack Featuring Scott Walker’s Score And Natalie Portman Singing Sia

Vox Lux is gonna be a divisive film. I found a lot to like in it (and a lot to think about), but I think just as many people will hate it as will love it. The music is also sure to be a discussion point, and whether it's meant to be bad … More »

Palehound, Sidney Gish, Worriers, & More Cover Magnetic Fields On You Can Sing Me Anything: A Tribute To 69 Love Songs

69 Love Songs is ambitious all by itself. A few dozen songs from anyone would be a significant feat no matter what, but part of why Stephin Merritt has become a touchstone for many artists and endured for so long is because he writes at a humungous volume but makes it look easy. And best … More »
