Mitski covers Bleachers, Lizzo and Missy collaborate on a banger, Tame Impala returns and more Lizzo + Missy Elliott: Tempo Lizzo and Missy Elliott have teamed up for an absolute banger with “Tempo.” With a beat that’s reminiscent of an early 2000s hip-hop club anthem, it’s a celebration of thick women: “Slow songs, they for skinny hoes / Can’t move all of this here to …

Flume: Hi This Is Flume (Mixtape Visualizer)

For his first release since 2017, electronic artist Flume taps fellow Aussie Jonathan Zawada for a 42+ minute visual for Hi This Is Flume. Though the release is available to stream on all platforms, it’s most powerful when experienced alongside the Zawada-directed video. Complete with lucid digital renderings and eclectic live-action scenes, the cuts accentuate the insanity of Flume’s music—it’s frantic and enveloping, but when the …

'Ashes to Ashes' Is the Second Half of Chris O’Leary’s Deep Dive into all Things Bowie

For those who have ever wondered if a blog can become a book, Chris O'Leary would respond with a hearty yes: his blog, Pushing Ahead of the Dame yielded two books.

O'Leary adds a quick note to bring the reader up to date, had they missed his first volume, Rebel Rebel (Zero Books, 2015) covering Bowie's creative work from 1964 to 1976....

Farewell to Keith Flint, a lost track from Röyksopp, a moving song by Amanda Palmer and more music this week Amanda Palmer: Voicemail For Jill Through her latest track and music video, the unflinching Amanda Palmer directly addresses the fact that abortion is oft-hidden and not easily discussed.

Sleepy Tom Adds Some Pop Gloss to His Dance Sound on "Amateurs" (premiere + interview)

What was the first thing you came up with when writing Amateurs, a melody, a beat, a sound? I was working on my laptop in my apartment (my studio was being used by a friend) and started with the drums, I think. Could have been the piano as well, as that's the part that really inspired the song. I had the verse progression for a while before I figured out how to change the chords in the chorus to give it a big lift. How easily did it all come together? The demo sat on my computer for a whi...

Kindness feat. Robyn: Cry Everything

Kindness has returned with “Cry Everything,” their first new solo tune since 2014. Sampling Todd Rundgren‘s gorgeous 1985 track “Pretending to Care,” the song encapsulates the concept of bittersweet—it’s simultaneously upbeat, solemn, funky and bleak. Kindness is currently on tour with Robyn, who co-wrote and features on the track. They’re also playing solo shows at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right and LA’s Zebulon over the next …

Shlohmo: Rock Music

Ahead of his next album, ominously titled The End, Shlohmo (aka Henry Laufer) shares “Rock Music”—an aptly named track blends the producer’s familiar style with chaotic rock. A distorted guitar dominates much of the track but, like all of Laufer’s songs, there’s an atmospheric quality to it—a sense of depth.
