Sinead O’Connor Apologizes For Claiming Arsenio Hall Was Prince’s Drug Dealer

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 02:15:48 +0000

In the wake of Prince's death last year, Sinead O'Connor went on a long Facebook rant accusing Arsenio Hall of fueling the Purple One's drug habit. Shortly thereafter, Hall filed a $5 million defamation suit, and now O'Connor has retracted her claims and issued an apology. "I apologize for my Facebook posts about Arsenio to…

Watch Skepta Perform “Shutdown” At The 2017 Brit Awards

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 22:01:04 +0000

Skepta was nominated for three awards at this year's Brits, including British Album Of The Year, British Male Solo Artist Award, and British Breakthrough Act. Unfortunately, the 34-year-old is not taking any of them home this year. Despite his losses, the grime artist from Tottenham owned the stage during his performance of "Shutdown." Drenched in…

Watch The Chainsmokers & Coldplay Debut “Something Just Like This” On The Brit Awards

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 21:35:56 +0000

The Chainsmokers and Coldplay unveiled their new collaboration "Something Just Like This" today, and it sounds exactly like you'd think it would sound. And then they debuted it on the Brit Awards, and it looked exactly like you'd think it would look. Watch that performance below. …

Preview A New Ted Leo Album Being Crowdfunded On Kickstarter

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 21:31:21 +0000

Ted Leo most recently worked with Kickstarter for their political art series Election Issues on the excellently choppy single "In The Mean Times." Now the lifelong punk-rocker is returning to the crowdfunding platform for the release of a new solo album. While Leo hasn't released an LP under his own name or with his band…

Watch Brit Awards’ George Michael Tribute: Chris Martin Sings “A Different Corner,” Wham!’s Andrew Ridgeley Introduces

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 21:27:47 +0000

Chris Martin paid tribute to the late George Michael at this year's Brit Awards. The Coldplay frontman took on "A Different Corner," and at one point, he duetted alongside archival footage of Michael singing the song, which was projected on a screen. Martin was introduced by Wham!'s very own Andrew Ridgeley. Watch clips of the…

Grace Slick Licensed A Starship Hit To Chick-Fil-A So She Could Donate The Fee To LGBTQ Charity

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 21:25:02 +0000

Starship's 1987 song "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" was used in a Chick-fil-A ad that aired during the Grammys, and Jefferson Airplane and Starship singer Grace Slick recently published an op-ed in Forbes explaining that she licensed the song to the infamously conservative fast food chain in order to donate their fee to an LGBTQ…

School ’94 – “Off To Live” & “Sway”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 20:54:25 +0000

Way back at the end of 2014, the Gothenburg pop-rock combo School '94 released their exquisite debut EP Like You. At the time I called it "fervent music that bridges the gap between Smiths-style guitar-pop and the new wave jams that ruled US radio in the Reagan era," praising the title track for "building from…

Temples – “Strange Or Be Forgotten” Video

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 20:25:52 +0000

UK psych-rockers Temples released last month the shimmery single "Strange Or Be Forgotten," which is off the band's forthcoming sophomore album Volcano. Today the song gets a semi-meta video that depicts the band directing a video. The actual video was directed by James Beale, and features the members of Temples capturing footage of a diverse…

Slingshot Dakota – “Grudge”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 20:24:51 +0000

Last year, Slingshot Dakota released their great album, Break, and today they're sharing a new track called "Grudge" that was recorded during the same sessions. It's featured on an upcoming 7" called Broken, along with B-side "Dying Stars," and it's a bright and anthemic song that still feels weighted down by the grueling reality of…

Band To Watch: Space Camp

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 20:18:52 +0000

Space Camp are a three-piece hardcore band from northern Connecticut, and that’s probably the easiest, most conventional way to describe them. In the case of this band, the macho bravado often associated with the genre is replaced by a desire to take nothing seriously, and the traditional guitar is replaced by two keyboards and a…

Mathew Lee Cothran – “Cherry High” & “Farrah Abraham”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 20:00:16 +0000

Matthew Lee Cothran (of Elvis Depressedly and Coma Cinema) is releasing a new album, Judas Hung Himself In America, under his own name at the end of the week. He's introducing the album with two new tracks, "Cherry High" and "Farrah Abraham," both warped pop songs about personal unrest when faced with what feels like…

The Chainsmokers & Coldplay – “Something Just Like This”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 19:51:41 +0000

Repent all your sins, for it hath arrived. The musical apocalypse is here. Coldplay and the Chainsmokers have a song together, and it sounds exactly the way you'd expect a Coldplay/Chainsmokers song to sound. The gentle house beats! The gooey synths! The Chris Martin doo doo doos! The guitar solo that sounds like morse code!

Dave Pajo: Billy Corgan Is A “Bully” Who Scolds His Fans, Obsesses Over White Stripes Album Sales

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 19:08:52 +0000

David Pajo of Slint and Billy Corgan once performed together in the supergroup Zwan, and ever since, the two have trashed one another as often as possible. Apparently, even now, no love has been lost. Pajo tore up Corgan in a new interview with the Kreative Kontrol podcast, where he states that the Smashing Pumpkins…

Strange Ranger – “Nobody Knows If” & “One Mississippi/Light In Through The Window”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 19:06:03 +0000

Strange Ranger just finished recording what technically amounts to their sophomore album, though it feels a world away from their early 2016 debut as Sioux Falls and their subsequent lineup change and Sunbeams Through Your Head, the follow-up EP under their new name. Their new album is forthcoming, but today they're sharing two outtakes from…

Ride – “Home Is A Feeling”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 18:55:21 +0000

Beloved English shoegaze deities Ride, back together and recording once again, are preparing to release their first album since 1996's Tarantula. Yesterday, they shared "Charm Assault," their first song in 20 years. Today, they've followed it up with another new one, "Home Is A Feeling." And where "Charm Assault" was a relatively compact and straightforward…

Joyce Manor – “Falling Out Of Love With You” & 100% – “All Dressed Up In Dreams”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 18:01:41 +0000

While on tour together last fall, Joyce Manor and Elaiza Santos' of Crying came up with the idea to release a split single where they'd each cover a song by Stephin Merritt's undersung band the 6ths. Today that collaboration comes to light, with Joyce Manor offering an interpretation of "Falling Out Of Love With You"

Shugo Tokumaru – “Lita – Ruta”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 17:56:53 +0000

Shugo Tokumaru's newest, "Lita - Ruta," is a concoction of layered percussion and rapturous momentum. The song's colorful tilt-a-whirl includes a dizzying amount of instrument sounds that I'm not even sure my mind knows how to register. Is that a broken music box at the beginning? "Lita - Ruta" is from his forthcoming LP TOSS,…

Emperor X – “€30,000″

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 17:31:15 +0000

Last fall, Emperor X -- the longtime project of Chad Matheny -- released a new song, "Wasted On The Senate Floor," a few days before the election, and that song's cynical lens sounds only more urgent given the disappointing but perhaps inevitable outcome. Today, he's announced that his next album, Oversleepers International, will be out…

Lauryn Hill Is A Grandma Now

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 17:26:46 +0000

Lauryn Hill was 22 when she and her boyfriend Rohan Marley -- the son of Bob Marley and a former Miami Hurricanes linebacker -- welcomed their son Zion into the world. "To Zion," one of the prettiest songs on 1998's The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, is about her baby boy. (Hill and Marley would go…

The Future Of Future Is A Great Rap Supervillain

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 17:04:31 +0000

In retrospect, we should thank the rappers of the world for their restraint. It's been more than four months since the Donald Trump Access Hollywood tape leaked, and I can't name a single rapper who bragged about grabbing pussy. (I'm sure some rapper, somewhere, said it, but I didn't hear it.) Easy availability of sex…

Slow Dancer – “Don’t Believe” Video

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 17:03:06 +0000

Simon Okely used to play guitar in the Australian band Oh Mercy, and he's now branched out on his own, recording music as Slow Dancer. He'll release his second solo album later this year, and he's just shared the video for first single "Don't Believe," a sort of understated, R&B-addled new wave jam. In the…

Jay Z To Become First Rapper Inducted Into Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 16:48:19 +0000

Jay Z will be the first rapper ever inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. The New York-based institution announced their Class Of 2017 today, which also includes Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Max Martin, and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. Songwriters are eligible 20 years after writing their first hit song, and Jay Z's Reasonable Doubt

Future – “Draco” Video

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 16:39:31 +0000

Future has had an excessively busy few days. On Friday, he released his new self-titled album. Yesterday, he dropped the video for "Super Trapper." Last night, he announced that he's got another album coming out this Friday, and he performed "Draco" on The Tonight Show. And now, he's got a new video for "Draco," one…

At The Drive In – “Incurably Innocent”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 16:26:49 +0000

Texas post-hardcore blitzkrieg specialists and Mars Volta predecessors At The Drive In returned last December with "Governed By Contagions," their first new song in 16 years. Today they've got another new song along with news of in • ter a • li • a, their first album since 2000's classic Relationship Of Command. As previously…

Thundercat – “Walk On By” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 16:11:03 +0000

On Friday, the dazed soul-music hybrid Thundercat will release his lovely, spaced-out new album Drunk, and we've already posted a couple of its tracks: "Show You The Way," which features Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald, and "Friend Zone." And today, the album's most eagerly anticipated song has hit the internet. "Walk On By" features a…

The Mountain Goats – “Andrew Eldritch Is Moving Back To Leeds”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:58:49 +0000

A couple of weeks ago, the Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle published Universal Harvester, his second novel (or, if you count the novella he published about a kid in a psychiatric hospital who needs his Black Sabbath tape to survive -- which I totally do -- his third). It's a deeply creepy and oddly moving…

Doug Tuttle – “Bait The Sun”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:23:40 +0000

In just a few short seconds, psychedelic pop-rocker Doug Tuttle blurs the lines between the past and present on his new single "Bait The Sun," off of his new album Peace Potato. The New England musician follows up last year's It Calls On Me with a new collection of effortless and breezy work that holds…

Arca – “Piel”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:20:22 +0000

Arca hasn't exactly been silent since the release of his 2015 full-length, Mutant -- he put out an outtake mixtape Entrañas in the middle of last year -- but it's always good to hear from the producer, and it's especially good when he has a new album in tow. He's releasing a new self-titled album…

Hear Strand Of Oaks Cover The Stone Roses, Primal Scream, & Phish For Lagniappe Sessions

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:16:58 +0000

Last week, Timothy Showalter, the raw Midwestern rock 'n' roller who records as Strand Of Oaks, released his new album Hard Love. And after the album was done, he sat down to record a few covers of songs he loves for the Aquarium Drunkard's Lagniappe Sessions series, in which artists record analog versions of other…

Walter Martin – “Hey Matt” (Feat. Matt Berninger)

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:08:00 +0000

Unfortunately for Walter Martin, dream collaborator Randy Newman is not into hand claps. When Martin, a multi-instrumentalist best known as former bassist for the Walkmen, started work on a follow-up to his star-studded 2014 children's album We're All Young Together, he enlisted Newman for help -- or so he tells us on new track "Hey…

The Bug Vs. Earth – “Snakes Vs. Rats”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 15:02:35 +0000

Apocalyptic UK grime producer the Bug (aka Kevin Martin) and Olympia ambient metal pioneers Earth (the brainchild of Dylan Carlson) teamed up on an EP called Boa / Cold in 2014, and now they're releasing a full-length album together. Concrete Desert marks the first new release by either artist since that EP, so I guess…

Joakim – “Samurai”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:56:59 +0000

A scintillating keyboard melody introduces the latest from French producer Joakim, followed by stoic saxophone bursts and, eventually, calming synths that rise from the ground like a haloing mist. On "Samurai," the title track from Joakim Bouaziz's forthcoming album, he asks to be relinquished from a mysterious relationship in order to reach self-growth and strengthening…

Bleached – “Flipside”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:49:19 +0000

The newest Bleached song from Can You Deal? is so good that frankly I cannot. Marked by chugging power chords and an arching melody that paints an otherwise brightly shining song with streaks of melancholy nostalgia, "Flipside" is a '90s alt-rock throwback with power-pop bona fides, like Evan Dando's best attempt at a Weezer song.

Whitney – “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You” (Bob Dylan Cover)

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:40:26 +0000

Bob Dylan ended his 1969 quasi-comeback album Nashville Skyline with "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You," a sleepy and blissful sort of love song, one with a view of romance that was much less bitter than most of what he'd written previously. Over the years, the list of artists who have covered the song…

Tonstartssbandht – “Breathe”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:30:55 +0000

The Florida/New York duo of Andy and Ed White, known as Tonstartssbandht (tahn-starts-bandit), have quite the background in all things lo-fi, thanks to the sheer volume of music the two put out separately and together. Andy plays bass in Mac DeMarco's live band, and both brothers have released work under different names, not to mention…

Watch Tove Lo Give An Intense Performance Of “True Disaster” On Seth Meyers

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:26:20 +0000

The Swedish pop auteur Tove Lo released her sophomore album Lady Wood last year, and she's now getting ready to go on tour with Coldplay. But even as she adjusts to the role of pop stardom, she still finds ways to give off a slight sense of danger and decadence. That was on display last…

Stream Skyway Man Seen Comin’ From A Mighty Eye

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:24:24 +0000

James Wallace's new album as Skyway Man, Seen Comin’ From A Mighty Eye, was recorded at the famed Spacebomb Studios, the Richmond institution led by Matthew E. White and responsible for the orchestral pomp of Natalie Prass' incredible debut album. You can hear the Spacebomb players' signature sonic heft behind Wallace's folk-soul compositions, which reach…

Migos Reportedly Beat Up Sean Kingston In Argument Over Soulja Boy

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:09:25 +0000

Migos have been rap stars for nearly four years, and they've got the #1 song in the country right now, but they are not acting like famous people these days. Case in point: TMZ reports that all three members of the group brutally beat up the mid-'00s pop star Sean Kingston in Las Vegas yesterday.

Future Confirms Another New Album This Week; Watch His Tonight Show Performance

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 13:51:21 +0000

Last Friday, with almost no notice, Future released a massive new 17-track self-titled album. Yesterday, rumors floated around about another massive Future album, one that would be coming out this Friday, just a week after the last one. As it turns out, those rumors were entirely correct. Last night, Future announced the impending release of…

Bonnie “Prince” Billy – “Treasure Maps”

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 03:26:43 +0000

Will Oldham, the Kentucky native who records ghostly folk music under the name Bonnie "Prince" Billy, has a new track on a four-song benefit compilation for the Southern Poverty Law Center. Organized by the Oxford, Mississippi record store the End Of All Music, the comp also features contributions from William Tyler, Adam Torres, and Patterson…
