Feb 9, 2016 9:54am | StereoGum
Yak - We heard Yak's first song "Hungry Heart" a little over a year ago, and no, it was not a sound-off to Bruce Springsteen as far as I know. It was, however, a fairly memorable introduction to the London-based trio. They followed it up with "No" in the fall of 2015, and today the … More »

BeyonceBeyoncé's Super Bowl Halftime Show performance was obviously badass, and it doesn't really need defending. But yesterday, certain members of the Republican outrage industrial complex got all up in arms about it. Former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani said that its relatively subtle black-empowerment message amounted to an "attack" on police, saying that … More »









Carey Hey Caty
Feb 9, 2016 9:23am | StereoGum
Carey - Carey hail from East Nashville and are perhaps one of the first bands that we can refer to as being "post-Bully." Fellow Nashvillian Alicia Bognanno put acerbic, sweaty, Southern garage rock back on everyone's radar last year with her emotive full-length Feels Like. You can hear some of that influence in the lyrics to … More »









Eddi Front Prayer Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Eddi Front - Every Eddi Front song since she first started releasing singles in 2012 has sounded a little like a prayer -- a personal confession, a private penance -- and that makes the fact that the latest single from her upcoming debut is called "Prayer" all the more apt. But prayers are whispered for a reason … More »









Beyoncés beyond awesome new album is done
Feb 9, 2016 9:21am | Fact Magazine

The follow-up to 2013’s surprise self-titled album could be coming sooner than later.

Fresh off the release of her new single ‘Formation’ and a massive performance at last Sunday’s Super Bowl, Beyoncés stylist Ty Hunter revealed last night Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live America’s only late night show where the guests say anything interesting that she has completed a new album and that “it’s beyond awesome.”

No word on anything else, but even knowing that it exists makes it slightly less of a surprise than 2013’s BEYONCÉ release.

Ghostface Killah responds to Martin Shkreli: The man with the 12-year-old body
Feb 9, 2016 9:08am | Cosequence Of Sound

Despite his ongoing legal issues and all-around villain status, Martin Shkreli seems more concerned about engaging with Wu-Tang Clans Ghostface Killah in a hip-hop beef that’s impossible for him to win.

After learning that Shkreli, the jack-ass pharmaceutical CEO infamous for his price-gouging of an AIDs medication, was the buyer of Wu-Tang’s lone copy of Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, Ghostface called Shkreli a “shithead”. Shkreli responded by releasing a “diss video” in which he and masked goons threatened to erase Ghostface’s parts from Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. Youre an old man an old man thats lost his relevance, and youre trying to claim the spotlight from my spotlight, Shkrekli said in the video.

Ghostface has now responded with a diss video of his own. In it, he calls Shkreli “the man with the 12-year-old body,” and refers to their beef as “Ghost vs. Peter Pan.” He says by price-gouging medication, Shkreli is a “real killer, a soft killer … you’re a baby.” Later in the video, he brings in his own “goons” in the form of his mother and sister, who give a stern talking to Shkreli. Ghostface’s sister also emotionally recounts needing brain surgery and being without insurance.

Watch Ghostface’s diss video below, and remember: Wu-Tang ain’t nothing to fuck with.
