Jay Z took to Twitter earlier today to defend his much-maligned and superfluous new streaming service. "Tidal is doing just fine," her reassures, and then sets up the millionaire's club as the underdogs and says that the service is a victim of "big companies that are spending millions on a smear campaign."

Over the past week, Jack White has been putting on intimate (and cheap) acoustic shows in five U.S. states that he's never played in before. After the mini-tour is over, he says that he'll be "taking a break from performing live for a long period of time." Which makes tonight's final performance at the Fargo… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

By Stereogum / April 24, 2015 - 5:42 pm
Admittedly, this is a bit of a weird week for 5 Best Songs. Not weird because the songs are stranger than usual (they're not) or because they're weak in some way (they're super not), but because there's no single track that casts a gigantic shadow over the others. But weirdness often makes for great spectacle. More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

By Tom Breihan / April 24, 2015 - 4:22 pm
One of the videos getting a lot of notice this week is Calexico's clip for "Falling From The Sky," starring José González and an absolutely disgusting worm creature. I can recognize that it's a very good video, but it's not on this list, because I hate that fucking worm creature. It just skeeves me out. More »

Violinist John Metcalfe is an expert at bridging the classical and pop worlds, and his latest single does just that.

It's a marvelou… More »

When Kanye West was recording My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in Hawaii, he famously hung a sign on the studio wall that read "What would Mobb Deep do?" That means Kanye wanted people like Justin Vernon and Rick Ross to put themselves in the same mindset of two teenage Queensbridge hyenas, young geniuses at the… More »

By Caitlin White / April 24, 2015 - 2:08 pm
Giorgio Moroder's new album Déjà Vu is his first in 30 years, and it also features a ton of wacky and unexpected high-profile pop star collaborations. The wackiest and most genius might be Britney Spears covering Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner," which has made it online a little earlier than expected. Listen to Moroder and Britney'… More »

Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Scott Lapatine / April 24, 2015 - 1:16 pm
Here at Stereogum we love musicians. But musicians do not always love us, especially this week. Amanda Palmer stopped by to address our criticism of her crowdfunding endeavors, though to her credit she stuck around and answered questions. We ranked post-punk band Wire's albums worst to best and they were not impressed. Charlie Puth hasn't… More »
