Father John Misty\'s debut \'Fear Fun\' came out 10 years ago

Sub Pop/Bella Union2012Sub Pop/Bella Union2012Josh Tillman was having a surreal moment. A couple weeks ago, he was performing the first of two Thursday night sets celebrating the release of his fifth Father John Misty album, . Looking out the window of the Rainbow Room — that old Rockefeller Center club towering over Manhattan, now implausibly the site of New York’s Rough Trade shows — he pointed to the glittering lights of the city and asked “…Chrysler Building or Empire State?” He explained he’d gone someplace else during that last song, that he took in his surroundings and a...

Milwaukee County Supervisor Apologizes For Using “WAP” To Promote Weatherization Assistance Program

Milwaukee County Supervisor Apologizes For Using “WAP” To Promote Weatherization Assistance Program

A Milwaukee official apologized for using Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” to promote the , which just so happens to share the same acronym with the raunchy chart-topper. As reports, county supervisor Ryan Clancy originally posted a press release about the WAP on his Facebook page accompanied by an image featuring Cardi and Megan and an altered line from the song: “There’s some holes in this house!”“What I was hoping to do was both to draw attention to a really good program phenomenally run by Black women here at the county while also trying to make reference to a song which, at...

Viagra Boys Share New Song \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Troglodyte\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\": Listen

Swedish post-punk outfit Viagra Boys are currently prepping their third album, Cave World, out in July. We’ve heard “” and now they’re following it up with the high-energy “Troglodyte.”A fast-paced and chaotic cut, “Troglodyte” throws together guitar, synths, flute, and a flurry of sound effects into the mix as the band huffs about a certain strain of male incel-ish frustration: “He says he don’t believe in science / He thinks that all the news is fake / And late at night he sits on his computer / And writes about the things he hates / But if it was a million years ago / And we were still...

glaive Surfs The Hyperpop Multiverse

glaive Surfs The Hyperpop Multiverse

I think we all got a little tired of hearing what hobbies our peers took up during lockdown in early 2020.

We\\\'ve Got A File On You: Mark Mothersbaugh

We\\\'ve Got A File On You: Mark Mothersbaugh

Over 50 years ago, Mark Mothersbaugh met Jerry Casale at Kent State, and the origin story of Devo began. It would take most of the ’70s, but eventually Devo arrived as a bizarre, ground-breaking band. You could lump them in with the post-punk and new wave movements, but they were always an aberration — a couple of guys from Ohio, making weirdo art-punk with brainy theory and cartoonish elements alike — to the point that over the decades many people haven’t known quite what to do with them, even as they’re also regarded as one of the more important bands of their time.Devo are still around —...
