  • Yes I’m Leaving – “One” (Stereogum Premiere)

    Pavement famously dissed Smashing Pumpkins in “Range Life,” but what if Pavement covered the Pumpkins’ “Cherub Rock”? It might sound a little like the harrumphing, clangorous “One” by Sydney trio Yes I’m Leaving. Comparison aside, this band’s trademark sound is far more abrasively scathing that anything Malkmus or Corgan ever kicked out — think Jesus [...]

  • Alex Napping – “Weak Knees” (Stereogum Premiere)

    Alex Cohen’s Austin quartet Alex Napping will release their six-song debut album This Is Not A Bedroom (which they’re calling an LP, not an EP) this fall. “Weak Knees,” the lead single, exists in the same universe as Waxahatchee’s folk-tinged quarter-life-crisis indie rock, and Cohen’s stated influences Pavement and Land Of Talk are evident in [...]

    As record stores go, so goes Drag City – and since we’ve been around for the last 25 years, clearly record stores have been doing something right! So we are very pleased to present you with special editions of three of Drag City’s earliest singles for a special Record Store Day of your own choosing. Three titles that changed the world! Our world, that is. DC1 - the one that almost ended it all before it really started! Any venture with Royal Trux was a straight-up GAMBLE in 1990, but not only did we manage to sell through a few thousand of these babies in a mere two-plus years, we also managed to make money on another couple dozen Royal Trux releases over the next decade. Plus, the record's great! "Hero Zero" b/w "Love Is..." are you kidding?

    Or what about DC2 - the one that almost broke us on…

  • The Yugos - "Follow You" (audio) (Premiere)

    The Yugos deliver a nugget of lo-fi indie pop perfectly suited for the summer.

    If you’re finding your summer in need of a sun-bleached, indie pop ditty, the Yugos have served up something to fill the void. “Follow You” is a rambunctious slice of lo-fi rock, catchy as hell in its up-tempo rhythms and noodly guitar work. With unabashed optimism, the Covington, Kentucky, quartet delivers a feisty paean that, despite their musical similarity to acts like Pavement and Archers of Loaf, is entirely sincere.

  • Band To Watch: Happyness

    Happiness is a great feeling; Happyness is a great band. The South London trio specializes in lush-yet-breezy indie rock that conjures all sorts of wistful feelings then takes the piss out of them with wry puns and punchlines. Think of it as Sparklehorse’s mournful dream-pop pocket symphonies infused with Pavement’s winking ironic sensibility, or Yo [...]

  • Future Islands: 'It was just the three of us against the world'

    Singles is their best album yet, but it was an appearance on the David Letterman show that unexpectedly turned the synthpop act into a viral YouTube hit, and a sellout success, after 11 years as a cult band

    Slumped in a dressing room above a Washington DC club, the three members of Future Islands look exhausted. Keyboard player Gerrit Wilmers mutters something about how he's "maintaining quite well", an assertion that would perhaps carry a little more weight if the man saying it didn't appear to be on the verge of catatonia. Singer Samuel T Herring, meanwhile, has contracted tonsillitis, adding an extra layer of sandpaper roughness to the already bizarre combination of soul-inspired testifying and death-metallish growling that constitutes his vocal style, and necessitating a course of antibiotics. "I want a beer so bad," he sighs, looking dolefully at my bottle of Sol, "and I can't drink, because I've…
