The Afghan Whigs changed my life

Elephant Stone singer & sitarist to the stars Rishi Dhir interviews one of his ’90s alt-rock heroes, Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs, who’ve released their first record in 15 years.

Today’s Sounds: The Ruby Suns

The Ruby Suns’ Christopher is far from your average break-up record, plus a new track by local quintet Young Galaxy and an exclusive video by fellow Montrealers Wake Island (formerly known as Intensive Care).

Today’s Sounds: P.O.S.

The long-awaited new record from ailing Doomtree rapper P.O.S., plus a new track by Four Tet (remixed by Jamie XX) and a video by Melbourne indie-folk act Husky.

Today’s Sounds: Dum Dum Girls

The shimmering garage rock of this L.A. band’s debut album I Will Be made a deep impression on me. Seeing them live a couple of times, at Il Motore last winter and more recently at Osheaga, cemented my feeling that they’re brilliant ambassadors for that classic cross-section of girl group* and garage rock. (*That they’re an all-girl group is irrelevant — granted, dudes would not look good in those tights. One of my favourite bands of the moment, the Drums, is a boy band that works the girl group angle. So to clarify, I refer to the Motown and Motown-adjacent girl group style.)
