🥇 Best New Reissue: The 6ths' Wasps’ Nests. In 1995, Stephin Merritt released a major-label synth-pop LP as the 6ths. He wrote all the songs but enlisted others to sing them, including Lou Barlow, Dean Wareham, Georgia Hubley, and Mary Timony. At the time of its release, Wasps’ Nests felt like another victory for a songwriter already on one hell of a winning streak, a feeling only amplified by the release of Get Lost six months later. But listened to now, some two decades later, it’s clear that Merritt was gathering his strength as a songwriter and a producer, which he would soon turn into a full-on torrent of genius. → Link in bio

20 years ago today, Modest Mouse's The Lonesome Crowded West was released. We gave it a perfect 10. The great theme of the album is travel, or more essentially, how motion through space feels. This is also intricately bound up with the physical geography Modest Mouse inhabited. The urban paranoia of post-punk seeps into wide-open rural, looming industrial and encroaching suburban vistas, all alike in their sinister, hypnotic repetition.

🏆 Best New Music: Charlotte Gainsbourg's Rest. Sung mostly in French, Gainsbourg’s gripping new album finds her in the tangles of grief. It is at once scorchingly intimate and fantastically oversized. She doesn’t just reveal her pain, but monumentalizes it, lays out a red carpet, and invites people to watch. Her refusal to be sequestered by grief is, quite literally, a death-defying feat. Give it a listen, and read the full review → Link in bio

In a new interview with Uncut, Tillman said, “Most of this next album was written in a six-week period where I was kind of on the straits.” He also said it’s “the real I Love You, Honeybear but without the cynicism,” and called it “a heartache album.” In addition, Tillman revealed some working track titles: “Mr Tillman, Please Exit the Lobby,” “Ouch, I’m Drowning,” “Dum Dum Blues,” and “Well, We’re Only People and There’s Nothing Much We Can Do About It.”

Lil Peep has died, his publicist confirms in an email to Pitchfork. The rising emo-rapper was 21 years old. His cause of death is not yet known. Lil Peep was born Gustav Åhr in Pennsylvania. He was raised in Long Island by his college-professor father and his mother, a first grade teacher. In interviews, he said his father abandoned their family when Åhr was 14. Shortly after dropping out of high school, Åhr received his diploma through online computer courses. He moved to Los Angeles where he joined several rap collectives including Schemaposse and Gothboiclique. In 2015, Åhr released his debut project, LiL PEEP PART ONE, which started gathering attention on SoundCloud. He began releasing short mixtapes with names like Crybaby and Hellboy. In 2016 and 2017, his videos for “White Wine” and “Girls” garnered millions of views. In August, he released his debut album, Come Over When You’re Sober (Part One). Lil Peep’s music was characterized by a candid approach to drug use and mental illness. The words “get cake die young” were tattooed on his forehead just below his hairline. “I suffer from depression and some days I wake up and I’m like, Fuck, I wish I didn’t wake up,” Peep told Pitchfork. The latest song he released, “Avoid,” appeared on Soundcloud last month.

The Range and Jim-E Stack’s song “With You” relies on a sample of an anonymous woman’s voice repeating the title until it becomes a mantra. Processed and clipped, the looped vocal becomes a little uncanny, hanging like a ghost in their production. In her remix of “With You,” though, the Brooklyn-based producer Yaeji makes sure we know exactly where the vocals are coming from by rerecording them herself. It plays like something of a power move, her gesture of not only remixing a track but also inhabiting its primary vocal space. Over swelling bass tones and a clattering industrial beat that feels more uneasy than the original drum pattern, Yaeji loops herself singing. In the back of the mix, she chops up, extends, and distorts her vocals like she’s getting mangled in a machine of her own making. Instead of weaving her voice into the mix like another instrument, Yaeji personalizes it, gives it agency, makes it struggle against its surroundings, and wakes it up. Though a few elements from the original—like a pearly synth lead and throbbing bass—linger, Yaeji’s take on the track feels more like a reenactment than a remix. Like she did with her cover of Drake’s “Passionfruit” on her recent EP2, she puts her mark on “With You,” taking full ownership of its sound and making it her own. 🎧 Listen → Link in bio
