Article: Watch the video Tim & Eric’s Eric Wareheim directed for Beach House

We love Eric Wareheim, when he’s making us laugh as one half of the comedy duo Tim & Eric. We love him a lot. But there’s something about this Beach House video that he directed that makes us love him even more. In fact, it almost makes us wish Wareheim directed music videos a lot…

Article: Watch Marc Maron, Weird Al and more audition for The Postal Service

In advance of the highly anticipated 10th-anniversary deluxe reissue of the Postal Service’s Give Up (out 4/9 on Sub Pop), the band has teamed up with director Tom Scharpling for a fantastically funny new video.

Article: Watch as The Chris Gethard Show makes an appearance in a So So Glos’ music video

A few months ago Brooklyn’s favorite DIY pop punk band The So So Glos swung by our adopted comic’s public access cable show The Chris Gethard Show to perform a rousing rendition of their ballistic anthem “Son of an American.” Now the So So Glos are getting ready to release their brand new record, Blowout,…

Exclusive Premiere: Wild Ones “Golden Twin”

Article: Exclusive Premiere: Wild Ones “Golden Twin”

Wild Ones gentle pop melodies are a far cry from the gritty guitar-driven sound that put Portland, Or., on the musical map back in the 90s. Their songs are filled with simple melodies, spare synths and sparse drums layered into unconventional pop melodies with lilting, melancholy songs. It’s a winning combination. Danielle Sullivan’s voice is…

Article: Exclusive Premiere: Big Harp “You Can’t Save ‘Em All”

When Big Harp first formed, Chris Senseney and Stefanie Drootin-Senseney had already had a baby together. Then they had another baby. And then they finally started playing music together.

Article: Exclusive Premiere: Paradise “Humans and Stars”

Just one listen to Paradise’s debut album, Diary of an Old Soul, reveals a rock band with a blue-jeaned, whiskey-soaked soul. The Portland, Oregon-based band revels in a retro rock n’ roll aesthetic filled with leather-jacketed vocals, crunchy guitars and a slicked-back Americana vibe. Paradise pulls enthusiastically from the same songbook as the Troggs or…

Exclusive Premiere: Jamaican Queens “Water”

Article: Exclusive Premiere: Jamaican Queens “Water”

The phrase “Detroit trap pop” may not mean anything to you, but that’s just because you haven’t heard Jamaican Queens yet. The Detroit-based duo some how manages to combine southern trap beats and hazy synth-driven experimentalism to end up sounding something like the lovechild of Grizzly Bear and Young Jeezy. You don’t really want to…

Exclusive Premiere: Mean Creek “Come On, Before It’s Gone”

Article: Exclusive Premiere: Mean Creek “Come On, Before It’s Gone”

There’s something about Mean Creek’s seductively unapologetic pop punk that makes you nostalgic for the rock and roll you listened to as a kid, the songs that made up the soundtrack to warm summer days spent with friends listening to tunes on the back porch or the front stoop of your childhood home. Their gritty…
