There exists a subset of indie rock artists I associate with record store clerks and collectors. Usually it's a bit skuzzier and meaner than whatever's popping in the indie mainstream, maintaining that old aversion to selling out or even crossing over. This music tends to be worshipful toward rock's ragtag early days and an expansive…

Following 2018's Sparkle Hard alongside his longtime band the Jicks and 2019's electronically inclined solo effort Groove Denied, the once and future Pavement frontman will allegedly take a rootsy tack with this year's Traditional Techniques. Malkmus recorded this new one with C...

Earlier this year, the great Omaha indie rock institution Bright Eyes started teasing a comeback on social media. This is a bit different from the standard band-reunion teaser, since Bright Eyes has always just been Conor Oberst and whoever else is around. But Oberst has been working under his own name for years now. He's…

Back in 2017, the late, great Daniel Johnston went on a farewell tour in which every show found him backed by local luminaries ranging from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band in New Orleans to emo heroes Modern Baseball in Philadelphia. Tweedy, the band led by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer, backed up Johnston…

Bright Eyes are back. Conor Oberst's massively popular and influential indie rock/folk/emo project has been inactive since touring behind 2011 swan song The People's Key. In the interim, Oberst has released a number of solo records, revived his punk band Desaparecidos, opened a bar in his native Omaha, and teamed with Phoebe Bridgers to release&...

The first -- but definitely not the last -- Guided By Voices album of the decade is officially on the way. Following last year's Zeppelin Over China, Warp And Woof, and Sweating the Plague, Robert Pollard and company kicked off 2020 with a 100-song marathon in Los Angeles on New Year's Eve. And now, they're…
Yesterday would have been David Berman's 53rd birthday and a number of different tribute shows took place around the US in his honor. In Portland, Pavement members Stephen Malkmus and Bob Nastanovich -- both were also occasionally in Silver Jews -- performed a handful of tracks on a bill that also include William…
As the classic U2 song goes, "all is quiet on New Year's Day." Maybe everyone's sleeping off the wreckage of the night before, but the first day of the year bears a certain fragile symbolism -- new beginnings, a moment of delicate (and increasingly delusional) hope that this year might be better than the last.

Earlier this year, the Silver Jews and Purple Mountains mastermind David Berman, one of the most beloved writers in the history of American indie rock, died by suicide at the age of 52.
