German DJ/Producer Zedd’s collaboration with Matthew Koma back in 2012 turned out to be one of the best songs of that year. I still can’t stop listening to Spectrum.
Now they’re back, adding vocalist Miriam Bryant into the mix. The result isn’t as good as Spectrum but it’s still a hell of an enjoyable pop-EDM track.
Here’s Find You.
Whether he’s fronting Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon or simply working under his own name, Mark Kozelek makes some of the most beautiful and moving — and sometimes darkly powerful — acoustic music around.
His new album as Sun Kil Moon hit iTunes yesterday and it’s his most personal release yet, with each song dealing not in universal themes but in very laser-point specific words about his life and feelings.

If Hillary Clinton takes the presidential oath of office on January 20, 2017, her victory will be partially thanks to voters, volunteers, donors and… the right wing.

The new Dum Dum Girls record is terrific, and this song in particular — the first single from it — sounds like so much of the post-punk I grew up with.
Here’s Rimbaud Eyes.
Back when George Zimmerman first announced he would be doing a celebrity boxing match and DMX offered up his services on behalf of “every black person who has been done wrong in the system,” we were left salivating at the totally unrealistic hypothetical scenario of DMX stepping into a boxing ring with George Zimmerman.
But holy hell, it looks like this might actually happen.
Last night, most of the civilized world watched the Seattle Seahawks crush the Denver Broncos 43-8 to win the 47th Superbowl, which took place in the cultural mecca of East Rutherford, New Jersey. This is almost guaranteed to be exclusively what coworkers, polite acquaintances, and neighbors you catch the elevator with will bring up today. Be prepared.
This morning, Hoffman was found dead in his Greenwich Village apartment with a needle still in his arm and five empty heroin bags next to his body, with three more still full and available for use.
