• A Swedish Jazz-improv Singer Who Sings All Crazy

    Our new favorite singer is Lindha Kallerdahl, a Swedish chanteuse who combines pretty, quiet singing with these improvisational vocal stylings that, honestly, we're having a hard time describing. It's like a little bit of every kind of sound that a person can make.

  • Robert Pollard

    The great thing about Robert Pollard is that while he seems pretty pragmatic and passionate about his songwriting and Guided by Voices legacy, he's also kind of fuck-off about it. He's a 50-year-old grandpa who calls his new band Boston Spaceships, after all.

  • Michael Rother

    Michael Rother was a founding member of the bands NEU! and Harmonia, and played in an early incarnation of Kraftwerk. Since the break up of these projects in the late 70s he has released a steady flow of solo albums.

  • R. Stevie Moore

    Remember when Little Girl Lost came out and everyone was shocked that Drew Barrymore did coke when she was 12? That shit is small potatoes as far as busted childhoods go.

  • The Odd Couple

    The first time I did DMT I was listening to Growing. I left my body and went blissfully floating through a heavenly realm of gothic cathedrals and blue shiny caves under a pink sky made of billowing curtains.

  • The Second Coming

    Hands up who's always wished that somebody could make a record that was partly inspired by things like the traumatic stories of genocide from We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories From Rwanda by Philip Gourevitch?

    Young Jeezy may not have the metaphors of Jay-Z or the output of Lil Wayne, but what he does have is the best voice in rap coupled with the charisma of a Southern preacher running a used-car lot.
