Rarely, if ever do I post fan footage but this is something special: hometown heroes War on Drugs jammed with former member Kurt Vile last night in Philly and burned the house down. Here they are ripping through “Under the Pressure”, check out the rest of their set here

Damon McMahon aka Amen Dunes put out one of my favorite folk records of 2014, Love. Here, he performs “I Know Myself”, arguably one of the best tracks off the album, by the Cathedral of Notre Dame. 

Ryan Adams is on an insane creative bender right now: first came 1984, his “hard-core” album that sounded a bit like The Men, then his self titled album that should definitely be considered his best work in years, and now Jacksonville, a 3 song EP that leans back towards his country-twang. All of this has been released within the month of Septemer. Damn boy!

Listen to SBTRKT's new single featuring both Warpaint and A$AP Ferg. Pretty incredible combo. 

Ryan Adams performed "Kim" last night on Jimmy Fallon and even though his sweaty hair got in his eyes, he refused to flinch because it had taken him 3 hours of careful sculpting to get it to look so perfect.

On an unrelated note, his new self titled album is killer, and absolutely worth a listen.

This weekend, let Action Bronson (and some other absolutely incredible chefs) cook BBQ for you.

You’ve heard everything there is to hear from Tennis right? Simple, happy pop songs with sugary sweet female lead vocals, and that’s it right?
Wrong. Tennis turn a corner with their new album Ritual in Repeat, thanks to production work from the Black Key’s Patrick Carney and producer Richard Swift. The album is percussion-heavy and driving, with some guilt-free disco and straight-up folk music in there too. Alaina Moore gets her diva on with songs like “Bad Girls” and “Viv Without The N”. Highly recommended listening in these early days of fall while the sun is still warm.
