    Vida Loca: 36 Hours with Gogol Bordello in New York and New Jersey

    To celebrate the release of their sixth album, Pura Vida Conspiracy, Eugene Hütz and his motley assemblage of gypsy-punks, Gogol Bordello, stormed New York, the melting pot that launched them back at the end of the '90s. Hitting an in-store appearance, a bonkers show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, and a quick hop across the Hudson River to New Jersey, we were there to document 36 hours of their wild, wild life.

    Earl Sweatshirt's 'Doris': Our Impulsive Reviews

    Yesterday, Odd Future streamed Earl Sweatshirt's long awaited second album, Doris, on their website. Here, six SPIN editors give their hasty and completely impulsive opinions...Rob Harvilla: For many a thirtysomething rock critic, the initial thrill of Odd Future was vicarious: Here's what the kids are into; here, in fact, are the kids themselves. But every moment of pure joy they've experienced since is seemingly counterbalanced by hours upon hours of distinctly adolescent depression, rage, and loathing, self- and otherwise: Set aside six hours and trudge all the way through a Tyler, the Creator record if you're unconvinced. It's an unpleasant reminder that roughly 85 percent of your teenage years were/are pure misery, whether you make a quarter-million off of socks or not.Which makes Doris an orgy of exquisite melancholy, of often deeply moving inertia.

  • Wallpaper. fronted by the totally real Ricky Reed

    Hear Wallpaper.'s Party Rockin' 'RRiR', the Sorta Title Track From Epic Debut 'Ricky Reed Is Real'

    Cripplingly self-aware hipster runoffers Wallpaper. have returned and the Oakland crew is still not sorry for party rocking. The viral video goofballs and stars of our what-is-the-point-of-Coachella-weekend-two feature are releasing their first album for a major, Ricky Reed Is Real. In anticipation, they've already released a video for the punky "Puke My Brains Out" and now deliver the title track, "RRiR." It's a completely unlikely yet inevitable smash-up of LMFAO'd EDM chart-pop, Ke$ha-style party-raps, fun. anthems (via Boston's "More Than a Feelin'"), Passion Pit skrillwave textures, and a rando feedback blast like the Melvins sample in Beck's "Beercan." Whew. Hear it below.
