Get a load of the guest list on Todd Rundgren's new album White Knight: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross! Daryl Hall! Dâm-Funk! Donald Fagen! Betty LaVette! Joe Walsh! Joe Satriani!

POND – “The Weather”

Aussie psych-rockers and Tame Impala affiliates POND are preparing to unleash their new album The Weather upon the world, and we've already posted the early tracks "3000 MEGATONS" and "Sweep Me Off My Feet." Today, they've shared the album's title track, as well. It's a big, heady cloud of a song, laced with vocoder and…

Gucci Mane Autobiography Coming In September

Thus far, one musician has already given us a must-read book in 2017: the Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle, whose deeply unsettling novel Universal Harvester is something you need in your life. Today, we learn about another. Gucci Mane, one of the most prolific and fascinating and generally great rap stars currently working, is set…

Mike WiLL Made-It – “Come Down” (Feat. Chief Keef & Rae Sremmurd)

I spent some of my last hours in Austin for SXSW at the Fader Fort, as has become my custom. The event tends to produce unannounced special guests throughout the week, particularly on its closing night, although it downsized significantly this year, allegedly in an attempt to diminish the impossible expectation that they'd somehow one-up…

Donald Trump Impersonator Sues Joey Bada$$ For Shoving Him Offstage

It would seem that Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ has such strong feelings about Donald Trump that he's taken them out on someone who is not actually Donald Trump. TMZ reports that Phillip Wilburn, a professional Trump impersonator, is suing Bada$$ for $1.5 million because Bada$$ pushed him offstage when the two did some sort of…

Just Like He’s Ringing A Bell: 20 Great Chuck Berry Moments

Six years ago, when I was a Pitchfork News writer, I wrote Chuck Berry's obituary. Berry had collapsed onstage in Chicago, and my editor wanted me to have something ready in case whatever he was suffering from proved to be fatal. That's something that many news organizations do, and it always seems morbid, like we're…

Watch T.I. & Ice-T Come Together For Jimmy Kimmel’s Mash-Up Monday

Usually, when Jimmy Kimmel Live hosts its pun-centric Mash-Up Mondays series, it brings together artists with essentially nothing in common, crossing genres up with no care for whether it'll actually make any sense. But on last night's show, Kimmel brought together two artists from the same genre, both of whom would probably be happy to…

Green Day, Sting, RHCP, & Dropkick Murphys Cover “Johnny B. Goode” In Tribute To Chuck Berry

The legendary Chuck Berry died over the weekend. Pretty much every band today owes a debt to Chuck Berry -- the dude more or less invented rock and roll music -- and a whole bunch of people decided to pay tribute by covering "Johnny B. Goode," perhaps his most iconic song. Everyone from Green Day…

Bleached – Can You Deal? EP

2 days agoMusic / Indie Music : HearYa

Photo by Nicole Anne Robbins The question being asked is Can you deal with women making music? Bleached follows up 2016?s acclaimed Welcome To The Worms.
