Buke and Gase

Buke and Gase Share Single, Announce Tour

Buke and Gase are more than an experimental duo; they’re inventors. Brooklyn musicians Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez made their instruments–the “toebourine” and “buke,” for example–by hand. Not only that, but their music stretches boundaries farther than we’re used to, all while maintaining a catchy-enough riff to keep us following along on their absurd path. It’s time to get our shoes back on for a hike, because the two have announced both a new single called “Seam Esteem” and a tour around the East Coast, Canada, and Midwest.

According to the press release, they wanted to raise their glass ceiling …

Wu Tang Reunites

Wu-Tang Clan Reunites on ‘The Daily Show,’ Drops New Song

Despite the crazy year Wu-Tang Clan have had–from trying to sell a single album for over a million dollars to the whole penis-slicing incident–the nine living members set aside their busy schedules to reunite on prime television last night.

The group stopped by The Daily Show to chat with Jon Stewart about their upcoming album A Better Tomorrow and some of their best memories with ‘Ol Dirty Bastard (RIP). As they told Stewart, the record will drop this November. To prove they weren’t messing around, they performed “Ron O’Neal,” the record’s first single, live on the show with plenty of …

JJ Dean and Me

Listen to JJ’s Beautiful New Single “Dean & Me”

It’s been three months since we first got word of Swedish duo JJ’s new album, VSince then, we’ve seen one glitter-filled teaser video, a haunting single that gave us goosebumps, and a tracklist outlining the intimate titles of songs we have yet to hear. Today, Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander return to share a new synth pop track that pairs well with the last of July’s sunny rays: “Dean & Me.”

Club beats and skittering cymbal taps outline the soaring new single as JJ’s melodic chorus of “oohs” raises us back up from the emotional well …

Meatbodies

Listen to Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin Member’s New Band Meatbodies

Back when Ty Segall was touring in his new band FUZZ and Mikal Cronin made a critically-acclaimed solo debut, Chad Ubovich was playing guitar and bass behind both psych rock gods. Between tours, Ubovich spent his time recording his own crunchy fuzz as Chad and the Meatbodies. With a little help from Segall, he’s now gone on to be picked up by label In The Red and will be releasing his self-titled debut as the renamed Meatbodies.

The 12-track debut was recorded with Eric Bauer (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, White Fence) and saw friends Cory Hanson of Wand and …

Unlike the sultriness of “Two Weeks” and the hard-hitting specifics of “Hide,” the new single sees trip-hop and guitar strums intertwined as FKA Twigs once again brings pained words to life with her golden croon. In an interview with Pitchfork, she said the song was written after …

With Kevin Ayers and Steely Dan influences, the band have traces of psychedelia and mall jazz in their songs while keeping the songwriting core tender. Lead single “Year of Patience” introduces the band nicely with a strutting saxophone line and Erin Birgy’s coy vocals, taking on the sounds of Ariel Pink, Prefab …
