ChicagoGate Update: Peter Cetera Threatens To Walk

Nobody expected the most intriguing story going into this year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony to be the internal dynamics of the band Chicago, and yet that’s where we are. Upon learning that his band would be part of this year’s induction class, co-founder Peter Lamm hinted that he’d like to reunite […]

Moderat – “Reminder”

Berlin-based smart-thump trio Moderat represent a melding of the stuttering rhythms of Modeselektor and evocative deep-house of Apparat. On their debut album and sophomore effort II their disparate sounds met in the middle. There was still some fine-tuning in the works on II, but “Reminder,” the first single off both their Reminder teaser EP and […]

Holy Ghost! – “Crime Cutz” Video

It’s nice to have Brooklyn disco dudes Holy Ghost! in full promo mode. A few days ago they shared a teaser for their single “Crime Cutz” and today they’ve paired the whole funky thing with a matching set of visuals by director Ben Fries. The clip is a spectacular polychromatic light show set in an […]

Nico Yaryan – “Driftin (Demo)”

We spotlighted LA songwriter Nico Yaryan last year with “Just Tell Me” and “Old Gloria,” two tracks that will appear on his debut for Partisan. Yaryan’s new demo “Driftin” isn’t included on the upcoming record, but it slots in nicely with what we’ve heard from the artist so far. Plaintive guitars give way to a […]

Watch Andrew Bird Debut “Capsized” On Conan

Last night, Andrew Bird, the most handsome whistler in all of indie rock, did musical-guest duties on Conan and used the opportunity to debut a new song called “Capsized.” It’s a simmering classic-rock groove that requires Bird to play his violin both as a violin and as a guitar. (No whistling, though.) As it turns […]

Download Young Thug I’m Up Mixtape

For a few weeks, the livewire Atlanta rap star (and recent Future sparring partner) Young Thug has claimed today as the release date for his Slime Season 3 mixtape. Well, Thug did follow up last fall’s Slime Season 2 with a new mixtape today, but it’s got a different title. The new tape is called […]

Stone Temple Pilots Reportedly Launching Open Auditions For New Singer

In the years leading up to the death of founding lead singer Scott Weiland, Stone Temple Pilots toured and recorded with Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington on lead vocals. But Bennington left the band late last year when it became clear his commitments to Linkin Park were too significant to continue fronting STP. A few […]

Rivers Cuomo, Ben Gibbard, Andy Partridge Write Songs For New Monkees Album?

Davy Jones, the singer for the ’60s psych-pop boy band the Monkees, died in 2012, but it looks like some version of the band intends to soldier forward. On Amazon, there’s a listing for a new Monkees album called Good Times, slated to come out 6/10 on Rhino. There’s no further information on it, but […]

Jessie J: “I’m Kind Of Celebrated As One Of The Greatest Singers In America”

The British pop singer Jessie J is doing just fine for herself in America. She has a couple of hits. She just opened Fox’s Grease! Live musical. That’s something, right? She is not, however, considered one of the greatest singers in America. That would be a ridiculous thing to claim. And yet, Jessie J is […]

Watch Wilco Perform On Colbert, Sing Stephen Colbert A Lullaby

Wilco have been down with Stephen Colbert since his Colbert Report days. And when they showed up on his Late Show last night, they weren’t just there to do musical-guest duties.

Donuts Turns 10

There’s a lot to break down on the massive hip-hop production pillar known as Donuts. In terms of emotion, technique, and legacy this thing is beastly. A 130-page book was written on it! So let’s begin with a bit of background and symbolism to ease into why it’s blasphemous among hip-hop heads to say you […]

Watch Madonna Play ’90s Hit “Take A Bow” For The First Time In 21 Years

Madonna’s 1994 single “Take A Bow” was one of her biggest hits, but she’s only performed it live a handful of times — once at the American Music Awards, once at Italy’s Sanremo Festival, and once on German TV, all in 1995. Today, however, at her show in Taipei, Taiwan, she sang the ballad live […]

Watch Larry David Get A Hug From The 1975 In Their SNL Promo

Larry David is hosting this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, and British bubblegum-pop band the 1975 will be the musical guests.

In one clip, Kate McKinnon and the members of 1975 […]

Watch Conan O’Brien & Grace Potter Play A Qatar-Themed White Stripes Parody
