The first offering is "Ben Franklin's Song," which features lyrics by Miranda and music by The Decemberists' frontman Colin Meloy and the band.
    • Run the Jewels Share “Call Ticketron” Video Featuring Giant Spiders and UFOs Invading NYC
      Run the Jewels (the duo of Killer Mike and El-P) released their third album, the appropriately titled RTJ3 (aka Run the Jewels 3), earlier this year (well technically it dropped a little early, late last December). Now they have shared a video for "Call Ticketron."

    • The End: Emily Haines on Endings and Death
      To end out the week, we ask Emily Haines some questions about endings and death. Although born in New Delhi, India, she grew up in Ontario, Canada. Haines is perhaps best known as the lead vocalist for Metric, who formed in Toronto in 1998 and have released six albums, the most recent being 2015's Pagans in Vegas. 
    • Loney dear on “Loney dear”
      It has been six long years since Emil Svanängen released his last album as Loney dear, 2011's Hall Music. In the interim, Svanängen has endured much change, suffering ends to relationships both personal and professional and ultimately finding himself at an artistic crossroads, one that informs Loney dear's seventh album, the self-titled Loney dear. […]
    • Life In Space
      Space noise, as is Nik Turner's wont, pervades every aspect of this record. And yet after a minute of such introductory interstellar vibrations, track one, "End of the World," emerges as a ballad of such gorgeous English melodic melancholy that you can bet if Oasis had recorded it, the song would be a Top 10 single the world over. 
    • I, Tonya
      As the film itself points out, our collective memories have a way of twisting the past.
    • The National Share “Sleep Well Beast” Video and Announce Hometown Music Festival

    • Premiere: Pretty Lightning - 'Tangerine Stream' December 15, 2017
      Fuzzed out blues rock with a decayed psych feel...Christian Berghoff and Sebastian Haas have been friends for some time, bonding over a mutual addiction to underground sounds. Forming a group of their own, the pair matched delta blues sounds against decayed psychedelia, fuzzed out blues against lengthy, drone-inspired excursions. Choosing the name Pretty Lig […]

    • Track Of The Day 15/12 - ELWD December 15, 2017
      'All Good Things'UK producer ELWD's prolific nature means his catalogue tends to explode on a near weekly basis.

New release 'All Good Things' is out via Bad Taste, and it […]
    • J F L E Makes Poignant, Astute Bedroom Pop December 15, 2017
      Wistful indie with a hint of electronics...At one point in time 'bedroom pop' was meant almost as an insult, to be used in its pejorative sense. Now, though, technology has leaped forwards, meaning that most of the cutting edge, truly inventive artists are now - essentially - working from their bedrooms. So it's a statement of fact when we des […]
    • A2 - Blue December 15, 2017
      Overflowing with atmosphere and darkness…Following up his tremendous stack of EPs, A2 releases one more to add to the list, ‘Blue’, in the only way he knows how. Whilst it seems that the UK rap is buzzing and producing the next best thing on a daily basis, Croydon bred A2 has always preferred to keep out of the public eye. Ominous and mysterious in character […]
    • Listen: JGrrey - 'Don't Fade' December 15, 2017

    • Wafia's 'Only Love' Is A Sparkling Introduction December 15, 2017
      Exploring intersections of identity through pop music...Enormously talented pop newcomer Wafia has shared new cut 'Only Love'.
