Last night, Austin City Limits, the long-running live music show (and radio station, and festival) hosted a two-hour fundraiser to benefit the music and service industry workers in Austin affected by the cancellation of SXSW and the ensuing coronavirus pandemic. Artists like the Gaslight Anthen's Brian Fallon, Lisa Loeb, Shakey Graves, and Britt...
In these trying times, at least we can count on Deerhoof as a bastion of stability. Not that the Bay Area noise-pop legends have ever gotten too comfortable in one sound for long; they've been restless innovators within their own canon. But we can always count on new Deerhoof coming down the pike soon, and…
In ways that she couldn't have possibly anticipated, Gal Gadot gave the world a great gift last week. When Gadot rounded up a bunch of her friends to sing lines from John Lennon's "Imagine" into their phones, she gave us all something that we can mercilessly clown while we're stuck in quarantine. Already, there have…

Bright Eyes were supposed to be playing their first comeback show last night in Japan. Thanks to the pandemic that has essentially ground live music to a halt worldwide, that didn't happen. The good news is that the band's reunion is progressing nonetheless today with the release of their first new song since 2011's The…
Aporia is a new collaborative album between Sufjan Stevens and his stepfather Lowell Brams. It was originally supposed to come out this Friday (3/27), but like a lot of album releases, coronavirus has thrown a wrench in those plans. In this case, Stevens and Brams' label Asthmatic Kitty turned it into a positive: Aporia is…
Few indie acts are as widely known and beloved as the Mountain Goats, and even fewer release new music at John Darnielle's prolific clip. But Darnielle is always on his grind, so of course the follow-up to last year's fantasy-themed In League With Dragons is under construction.
Next week, Sufjan Stevens will release an album of New Age instrumentals called Aporia with Lowell Brams, his stepfather and longtime partner in the record label Asthmatic Kitty. (He's the Lowell of Carrie & Lowell fame, and speaking of which, how about another album of proper songs, Suf?) Thus far we've heard two tracks from…
God bless the power of human confidence. Right now, with pandemic fears tanking the stock market and with festivals and big tours shutting down, it seems like a massive act of hubris to announce that your band is hitting the road this summer. And yet that's what some bands are doing. Wilco and Sleater-Kinney, for…
Last month, Built To Spill announced a Daniel Johnston covers album, Built To Spill Plays The Songs Of Daniel Johnston, which they recorded while preparing to perform with Johnston at the Vancouver date of his final tour. It's the second tribute album to come out of that tour following Wilco's vinyl-only live album, which chronicled…

With the release of "Xian Man" last month, Stephen Malkmus announced his third album in three years. Whereas 2018's Jicks effort Sparkle Hard presented something close to the classic indie rock sound Malkmus made his name on and 2019's Groove Denied was an electronically inclined solo endeavor, this year's Traditional Techniques finds the once a...
It's now been more than 20 years since Stephin Merritt's Magnetic Fields released the triple-LP conceptual pop masterpiece 69 Love Songs. Today, Merritt and his group have announced another grand project: A quintuple LP made up only of short songs. This spring, the Magnetic Fields will release Quickies, the follow-up to 2017's even-bigger, even-...
Five years after he released the devastating Carrie & Lowell, Sufjan Stevens is still in side-project city. Next month, he'lll release a new album, but it won't be a regular Sufjan Stevens album. Instead, he's teamed up with his stepfather Lowell Brams -- the co-head of his Asthmatic Kitty label, and one of the inspirations…
Once and future Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus announced a new album last month. Traditional Techniques, the follow-up to last year's electronic solo album Groove Denied and 2018's Jicks LP Sparkle Hard, is a collection of folk-rock songs recorded with Matt Sweeney and the Decemberists' Chris Funk.

Conor Oberst has been plenty of busy in recent years, but it's been a long time since we've heard from Bright Eyes, the project that made Oberst famous in the first place. That's about to change. Last month, after a bit of teasing, Bright Eyes announced a full-on revival. They unveiled their first live dates…
