Thom Yorke’s Son Noah Releases Radiohead-esque Debut Single

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke’s son Noah has released his debut single, and between the falsetto and the In Rainbows-esque guitar, it sounds a whole lot like Radiohead.

Stream Never Ending Game’s Hard-As-Fuck New EP Halo & Wings

The Detroit hardcore band Never Ending Game make some real primally satisfying noise. NEG’s version of hardcore is built around gigantic juggernaut riffs and grunted fuck-you-up vocals. There’s some metal in the band’s sound, especially the early-’90s Biohazard kind of metal. Sometimes the band plays fast, but they’re really in their comfort zone when they’re locking into midtempo dinosaur-stomp riffage, and they do that kind of riffage better than just about anyone.

Givēon – “For Tonight”

The Long Beach R&B singer Givēon has had a fast rise in the last couple of years, thanks to a couple of prominent Drake collaborations and an appearance on Justin Bieber’s chart-topping single “Peaches.” But Givēon’s music is a whole lot more low-key than his resume implies. Givēon released two EPs last year, and Epic recently compiled them into the new album-length release When It’s All Said And Done… Take Time; Stereogum’s Chris DeVille had some nice things to say about it. Today, Givēon follo...

CupcakKe – “Marge Simpson”

Chicago rapper CupcakKe has a history of making dirty songs about cartoon characters. She has songs called “Squidward Nose” (“His dick smaller than my toes/ I’d rather ride Squidward nose”) and “Garfield” (“This pussy heavy just like a barbell/ I got a fat cat, fat cat, fat cat/ Fat cat, fat cat, lookin’ like Garfield”). And now she has a song called “Marge Simpson.”

Amber Mark – “What It Is”

Westside Gunn – “The Fly Who Couldn’t Fly Straight” (Feat. Tyler, The Creator)

Last month, Buffalo rap overlord Westside Gunn continued with his endless Hitler Wears Hermes mixtape series, releasing the new installment Hitler Wears Hermes 8: Sincerely Adolf, which featured guest appearances from stars like Lil Wayne and Jadakiss. For all his success, you would think that that Gunn would’ve figured out that invoking Hitler in his mixtape titles is a dumb thing to do, but no, he keeps doing it. That last mixtape, it turns out, was merely the first half of a new installment. ...

Stream Sufjan Stevens & Angelo De Augustine’s New Album A Beginner’s Mind

Folky Sufjan is back, baby!

Duran Duran – “TONIGHT UNITED” (Prod. Giorgio Moroder)

Chvrches – “I’m With You” (Avril Lavigne Cover)

Chvrches have shared a cover of Avril Lavigne’s 2002 hit “I’m With You.” The Scottish trio recorded it for an Apple Music Home Session alongside a new version of the track “California” from their recent album Screen Violence. In a statement, Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry called Avril Lavigne’s song “a classic banger-ballad of our times.” Listen to their rendition of “I’m With You” below.

Stream Andy Shauf’s New Album Wilds

Just two days after announcing it, Andy Shauf has released his new album Wilds. Recorded around the same time as last year’s lovely The Neon Skyline, this latest release comprises nine songs that continue to demonstrate the Saskatchewan singer-songwriter’s knack for thoughtful narrative lyrics and immaculate retro folk-pop arrangements — but if you’ve heard advance singles “Jaywalking” and “Spanish On The Beach,” you already knew that.

Nick Cave – “Shyness”

In recent years, Nick Cave has always been up to something or another, and has released music at a fairly prolific clip. But he’s really been up to a lot this year. He and Warren Ellis released the great Carnage, he was cast as a forest in a Shakespeare production, he announced he’d be teaming up with Andrew Dominik once more for a live Carnage and Ghosteen film, he began rolling out B-Sides And Rarities Part II, he announced a new memoir focusing on the years after his son’s death, and apparent...

Janelle Monáe – “Say Her Name (Hell You Talmbout)”

Ahead of International Daughter’s Day on Sunday, Janelle Monáe has released the new single “Say Her Name (Hell You Talmbout)” in collaboration with the African American Policy Forum’s #SayHerName Mothers Network, a community of mothers and family members of Black women, girls, and femmes killed by police.

Stream One Step Closer’s Stunning Debut Album This Place You Know

The Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania straight-edge band One Step Closer have been one of the most exciting things in hardcore ever since they released their 2019 EP From Me To You. The band writes huge, crashing, anthemic songs about personal apocalypse, drawing on the work of bands like Turning Point and Title Fight. Their sound is melodic, full of dynamic guitar-twinkles and heart-wracked screams, but it’s got serious muscle to it. They’ve had potential exploding out of them, and we made them a Band...

Portugal. The Man – “Steal My Sunshine” (Feat. Cherry Glazerr) (Len Cover)

These days, the Portland/Alaska alt-rock hitmakers Portugal. The Man are on some real wacky shit. In the past year, the band has collaborated with “Weird Al” Yankovic, launched a cryptocurrency, and covered Metallica. Today, the band has taken on a couple of ’90s buzz-bin classics that many of us remember with a whole lot of fondness. They’ve dropped their own versions of “Novocaine For The Soul” and motherfucking “Steal My Sunshine.”

Guns N’ Roses – “Hard Skool”

Guns N’ Roses long-awaited comeback album Chinese Democracy came out about 13 years ago, and it’s not the kind of record that inspires most GN’R fans to go into nostalgic reveries. But lately, Guns N’ Roses have been revisiting the songs that the band wrote during that Chinese Democracy era, and now they’ve gone back to those Chinese Democracy sessions and released a couple of songs — their first in 13 years.

Stream The New Velvet Underground And Nico Tribute Feat. Michael Stipe, St. Vincent, Thurston Moore, & More

Before legendary Saturday Night Live music producer Hal Willner passed away last year, he was working on at least two different all-star tribute albums. The first, AngelHeaded Hipster: The Songs Of Marc Bolan And T. Rex, was released last year. And today, we’re getting a full-length tribute album to the Velvet Underground’s 1967 classic The Velvet Underground & Nico that Willner organized. It’s called, fittingly, I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to the Velvet Underground & Nico.

The set also features remixes by What So Not and Royal Blood and “No Save Point” from the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack, as well as instrumental versions of all 11 album tracks.

Coldplay & BTS – “My Universe”

Coldplay’s whole schtick for their new album Music Of The Spheres is the universe, so perhaps it makes some sort of cosmic sense that Chris Martin and co. would seek out Earth-famous superstars BTS to collaborate on a song for it. Today, the two groups have collided for a new track called “My Universe.” It was produced by Max Martin and co-written by Coldplay and BTS.

Aimee Mann – “Burn It Out”

Aimee Mann announced the release of her new album Queens Of The Summer Hotel — a project that started with Mann writing songs for a prospective Girl, Interrupted musical — with lead single “Suicide Is Murder.” Today she returns with “Burn It Out,” a second advance track from the LP. It’s the kind of songcraft we’ve come to expect from Mann, a gentle and ornately pretty waltz, smartly written and emotionally intelligent to boot. “Can you just burn it out?” she sings. “So thoroughly you’ll never s...

Hear New Covers By Angel Olsen, S. Carey, & More On Jagjaguwar’s Join The Ritual Compilation

Today, they’re releasing a covers compilation called Join The Ritual, which features some Jagjaguwar artists and friends covering bands that inspired label founder Darius Van Arman and partner Chris Swanson to get into the music business in the first place.

Fauness – “It Gets Better”

Fauness, the idiosyncratic London pop artist whom we named one of the best new bands of 2019, is releasing her new Maiden No More EP in a couple of weeks. Every song on the EP, which was named after the second section of Tess Of The D’Urbervilles, was co-produced by recent Olivia Rodrigo and Injury Reserve collaborator Jam City.

Bartees Strange – “Weights”

DC rocker Bartees Strange has been crazy busy ever since he released his towering album Live Forever a year ago. Just last week, for instance, Strange released his cover of Richard Swift’s “Lady Luck.” Don’t expect him to slow down anytime soon. Strange is getting ready to release a new deluxe edition of Live Forever, and he’s just shared a new song that’ll be part of that. The new one is called “Weights,” and it kicks ass.

Couplet – “Sold Our Shirts”

Just last week former You Blew It! leader Tanner Jones and Into It. Over It. members Adam Beck and Evan Weiss released their first song as Couplet, “Old Elba.” Today the trio’s back with another track from LP1, “Sold Our Shirts.” Over a soft bed of synthy minor-key indie rock, Jones serves up lyrics that take the piss out of touring life, with all its economic and social consequences:

Mandy, Indiana – “Bottle Episode”

Mandy, Indiana used to be called Gary, Indiana, a reference to the depressed Chicago-area town that gave us the Jackson family and Freddie Gibbs. Both the Mandy and Gary versions of the name are delightful to me, as is the noise-bombed, dancefloor-ready industrial post-punk found on the group’s new … EP.
