Tonight is the annual NBA all-star basketball game in LA, which means it’s been one year since Fergie’s hilariously bad rendition of the National Anthem. For tonight’s game, the league recruited Anthony Hamilton for the American National Anthem and Carly Rae Jepsen for the Canadian National Anthem. More »

Blueface is a 22-year-old LA rapper whose offbeat flow has people questioning if he can actually rap. But even if he can’t, it doesn’t seem to be slowing him down any. He’s blowing up thanks to the viral success of songs like “Respect My Crypn” and “Thotiana,” a 2018 mixtape track that’s currently … More »
Recent collaborative counterparts, Ekali and 1788-L are among the most alluring names on the electronic agenda as of late. 1788-L, since his ascension through an auspicious feature on REZZ‘s “H E X,” has so far remained anonymous, at least by face. His off-kilter strain of glitchy electro is distinguishable to even the most untrained ear. Ekali’s fervent reception has landed him in some slightly larger arenas in the years since Skrillex remixed his “Babylon” original.
By way of their all-but-“R U I N”-ous brainchild, the pair succeed in scaffolding of one another’s diverging production styles for a complex and decadently maze-like sonic offspring. Drop one falls in 1788-L’s court, with its grinding, stop-and-go, mid-tempo electro, while Ekali ensconces the second breakdown with his invariably melodic DNA. Prophetic wind and piano synths join dizzying drum ‘n’ bass fills for a paradoxical delivery that melts monotony in its tracks.
The two have been teasing the track for some time, sprinkling it into their sets throughout Ekali’s Crystal Eyes Tour. Illenium offered up his edit of the track ahead of the release, bolstering anticipation for the original. “R U I N”‘s release comes with a Blade Runner/apocalypse-themed visual spearheaded by Quentin Deronzier.
If you went to high school in the ’90s, you almost definitely saw someone cover Rage Against The Machine’s 1996 monster-banger “Bulls On Parade” at least once. Maybe you covered the song yourself. We couldn’t help that shit. “Bulls On Parade” was in the air, and even if you had no idea what a five-sided … More »
Mal Blum, who I once called punk’s greatest hidden treasure, are back with their first new music in three years, since 2015’s You Look A Lot Like Me. Their new single, “Things Still Left To Say,” is Blum at their best: concise and hard-hitting, with a rousing chorus that talks about … More »
Last year, the Boston trio Wet, who specialize in an exceedingly calm and reassuring blur of R&B and pillowy rock, released their deeply soothing Still Run album. Right now, they’re gearing up for a co-headlining tour with Kilo Kish, which should make for a spectacularly languid night out. And now they’ve come out … More »
Robyn’s new music video opens with a long slow-motion shot of a camera panning through the forest. We see a whole bunch of good-looking young people dancing in the woods, while a smoke machine billows fog all over them. I have been to Sweden, Robyn’s homeland, a couple of times, and I can pretty much … More »
Sir Babygirl’s debut album, Crush On Me, is our reigning Album Of The Week, and today Kelsie Hogue has shared a video for the project’s title track. The version that’s in the vid is different than what’s on the actual album — that one sounds more Sleigh Bells-lite, this one folds in on … More »
