Listen to “Easy Rider,” the New Single from Action Bronson

When I was little, I used to sit with my fingers quivering over the “REC” and “PLAY” buttons, ready to record the latest joint by whoever, just so I could rock it on my walkman later. It was a long time ago so who gave a shit if it sounded like poo; I just wanted to have it and know the words before my other homies did. Nowaways, everything’s being recorded, so a dub off of the radio isn’t really all that special, and more annoying than anything. 

Today, Action Bronson dropped his first single from Mr. Wonderful, “Easy Rider,” with an unceremonious release to radio, prompting the internets to go buckwild and post every grade-B, sub-par dub of the track ever to be played out of a tin can. Noisey won’t play you like that though. Here’s that real real real version, that professional shit.  Because we love you and you deserve only the best.

Stream Satisfaction Guaranteed, the new debut album from Junglepussy – VICE Premiere
Early into the second song on Junglepussy’s excellent debut album Satisfaction Guaranteed she raps, “How dope is this? Teach you how to grow and live.” The line—rapped quickly, with her rollicking flow, kind of like a slinky expanding and contracting with each breath—also works as Junglepussy’s motto. She’s here to please you, help you, teach you and, most importantly, introduce you to her tropical lifestyle.
It took nearly two years since her first song, “Cream Team” and even Erykah Badu asking for more, but the 22-year-old FIT-student formerly known as Shayna McHale finally came through with a self-help album for the people. “I wasn’t like I want to make music so that I could be amazing and everybody would love me,” she said when we met yesterday afternoon during a quick interview. “People really wanted me to do it. The people were asking me to share my thoughts and views on things and I can’t deny them of that.”
On Satisfaction Guaranteed, Junglepussy teaches you how to eat, date, text, and live the life of a take-no-shit power bitch, all over a set of lush, deep and dark Shy Guy beats. Girls, take notes. Guys, try not to catch too many feelings. Everyone—put this on heavy rotations for maximum effect.

Black Lips – “Boys in the Wood” Video Premiere

Last month, Black Lips announced that their first full length album in three years—Underneath the Rainbow—will be released on March 18 via Vice Records. And then they released their new single, ”Boys in the Wood.”  And finally, they announced they’re going on a spring tour! (More on that later) Besides being pretty fucking busy, Black Lips are premiering the video for their single, “Boys in the Wood” today, co-directed by the ATL Twins (Yes, those twins) in 4K, which essentially means if you have a 4K TV you are going to have the best viewing experience of your entire life with this video. It’s also extremelyNSFW, also NSFA (Appetite).

This video is truly not for the faint of heart; there’s plenty of blood, drugs, masks, and sex. Honestly, what do you expect from a song with a chorus like “When the boys start to drinking / You know it ain’t no good / Ain’t gonna live for tomorrow / You know you never should.” So, if blood and sex and gore is your thing, which it probably is, you’ll enjoy “Boys In The Wood” starring the ATL Twins, Curtis Snow, Dr. Dax, Mike Cantrell, Ghetto Josh, Patrick Barger, Adam and Andrew Gates, Dale Ross, Baby E, Blo, and Jill Cosby.

Premiere: Jimi Nxir’s “Thundher” Video 
A couple of years ago, in a dumpy discount grocery store in Cleveland, Ohio, you might have seen Jimi Nxir stocking shelves with crap like antiperspirant deodorant and mothballs. The singer-songwriter was probably filling those racks to the fine tunes of groups like Dexys Midnight Runners and Wham! But even then, in full-fail regalia with the employer-provided polyester polo shirt and flat-front pants on, he had a different song in his head—one of psychedelic soundscapes where electronic vibes become soulful and hot-buttered soul becomes ones and zeros. You might not have recognized it back then, if you saw him among the rows and aisles of processed food and useless knick-knacks, but Jimi has always had his own song to sing. And his song would take him from the sleepy streets of Cleveland to the vanguard of a new movement of black artists in New York City.

On the Road with Tony Clifton
A Filmmaker’s Life and Work with the Drunken, Racist, and Probably Fictitious Lounge Singer
Scroll to the bottom of this piece to watch the exclusive premiere of Tony Clifton’s music video for “Lonely Girl.” It’s safe for work… ish.
Before the flood, Jeremy Johnson and his wife were always in the process of starting or ending some new independent business venture. Nothing ever stuck. Before Hurricane Katrina filled their New Orleans home with poisonous water, they’d curated a personal museum of pop-culture knick-knacks that they eventually tried turning into a thrift shop. Looking back on it, the most important items in Jeremy’s collection included the official WWF Andy Kaufman and Jerry Lawler figurines, and a copy of Lynne Margulies’s Kaufman documentary I’m From Hollywood, which told the story of the aggressively strange, groundbreaking comedian and performer’s venture into the wrestling ring. “Andy Kaufman hit me hard at a young age,” Johnson explains. “In sixth grade, this male friend of mine would get these girls in the neighborhood to come over, we would watch videotapes of Andy Kaufman wrestling women, and we would wrestle the girls in his parents’ living room while watching the videos.”
Katrina also flooded the school where Jeremy had been teaching moderately disabled high school kids, so in 2007, at the age of 27, Johnson began working at a coffee shop, while rebuilding his home. As an emotional booby prize, Johnson finally had the time to indulge his amateur filmmaking urges. “For a long time I’d been denying my creative side,” Johnson says. He slung coffee to a number of New Orleans layabouts, including an old gray-haired hippie type who began coming in every day to chat up Jeremy about pop culture, especially film. Not until the ponytailed fellow asked Jeremy to help him film a commercial for insult comic and “singer” Tony Clifton’s big comeback tour did Johnson recognize him as Andy Kaufman’s former writing partner, Bob Zmuda.

The Flaming Lips’ “You Lust” Video Premiere

The Flaming Lips have been a lot of different things over the years. Their newest album, The Terror, shows the band moving even further from their Willy Wonka-on-mescaline incarnation. The Terror is dark, drone-y, and bleak. “You Lust,” the album’s 13-minute centerpiece, probably won’t get chosen as the state rock song of Oklahoma, but it perfectly soundtracks the music video’s sci-fi nudity.

We spoke with the Flaming Lips’ Steven Drozd about the video, which, it turns out, he had nothing to do with.


Steven Drozd, via

VICE: What was your role in putting the video together?
Steven Drozd: 
I had nothing to do with it. Not one thing. Wayne sent me an early edit and asked my thoughts. That was about it. If Wayne has something he wants to try with the rest of the band members, then we’ll be thrown in. But if we’re not needed, then he doesn’t involve us. That’s fine with me.

Hm. Why do you think Wayne edited the original version of “You Lust” down for the video? I thought it was going to be a sprawling, epic short film. But the video clocks in at just over four minutes.
I think it was time constraints. That is a lame excuse. They’re talking about doing a full-length version. It’s an opportunity to do that early MTV thing where there’s a whole story and setup before the song starts. Maybe Wayne could make a minimovie like David Bowie did with “Blue Jean.” The shortened version was sort of weird, because I’ve listened to the song so many times, and I have gotten used to the version with the long, creepy choir solo.

Oh well. What do you think of the nudity?
The nudity in the video isn’t glamorous or sexy. It’s very stark and disturbing. I think that’s a bold move. There are some shots when you go, “That’s an interesting angle to shoot a flaccid penis from…” But Wayne isn’t shy about being naked.

Are all the dicks and tits and vaginas straight out of his brain? Or are you on the same nudity trip?
That’s all him. Something must have happened to him when he was eight or nine that completely zapped his brain. Wayne goes through phases of working with different types of imagery. In 1989, it was Jesus Christ and God. But the vaginas never really go away [laughs].
