Machine Gun Kelly To Play Tommy Lee In Netflix’s Mötley Crüe Biopic

Colson Baker, better known as pop-rapper Machine Gun Kelly, has been cast in Netflix's new Mötley Crüe biopic. MGK has been carving out a little side gig for himself as an actor, most recently in Cameron Crowe's Roadies and the very stupid techno-thriller Nerve, and Variety reports that he's now set to play Tommy Lee…

Tinashe – “No Drama” (Feat. Offset) Video

Tinashe and Offset released a strong new collaboration called "No Drama" this morning, but unfortunately it's been all drama for Offset today.

Faith Healer – “& Waiting” Video

The Edmonton duo Faith Healer released a second collection of easygoing retro guitar-pop jams called Try ;-) last year. Today they're back with a video for the album's lovely, loping "& Waiting." They tell The Fader they shot it on their iPhones on the beach in Pensacola the morning after a horrible show in New…

Tom Hardy’s 1999 Rap Mixtape Has Been Unearthed

Falling On Your Arse In 1999 is a previously unreleased collaboration between a DJ named Eddie Too Tall, aka Ed Tracy, and a rapper named Tommy No. 1, aka Tom Hardy. Yes, that Tom Hardy.

The Number Ones: The Elegants’ “Little Star”

The Number Ones is a new column where I'll review every single #1 single in the history of the Billboard Hot 100, starting with the chart's beginning, in 1958, and working my way up into the present. It is, in other words, a shameless ripoff of the great British blogger Tom Ewing's long-running column Popular,…

Ty Dolla $ign – “Ex” (feat. YG) Video

"Ex" was one of the better offerings on Ty Dolla $ign's lukewarm album from last October, Beach House 3. The song is funky and smooth and about infidelity -- but in a fun, groovy way! It sounds like something that would play at a club that only allows attractive people inside, which is exactly what…

Gotcha Covered: “God Save The Queen”

It was 40 years ago this month -- January 14, 1978, in San Francisco's not-long-for-this-world Winterland Ballroom  -- that the Sex Pistols' doomed US tour finally came to an end and with it, the band as an ongoing legitimate concern (at least until the inevitable reunion). Johnny Rotten's famous last words, bitterly introspective and defeated,…

Hovvdy – “In The Sun”

Austin-based Hovvdy make dusty, wistful indie rock with a warm center. We've already heard "Late," "Petal," and the title track from their forthcoming sophomore album, Cranberry, and today they share "In The Sun." Hovvdy half Will Taylor describes it as "a song about falling into sync with someone and staying home a lot, and about…

Mad Cool Festival 2018 Lineup

Madrid's Mad Cool Festival already had a pretty stacked lineup, especially if you're a fan of rock, and even more so if you're a fan of alt-rock greats from the '90s. Anchored by heavyweights like Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, and Queens Of The Stone Age, the fest also boasted some more unique headliners like…

Having Conquered Britain, Dua Lipa Is Coming For America Next

"New Rules" is a great song. Using the ingredients of the moment -- nimbly tapped tropical-house keyboards, complex but airy drum programming indebted to Africa and the Caribbean, a morphing stylistic terrain that veers from booming rock-indebted bridges into surging dance-infused choruses -- it serves as a contagious canvas for 22-year-old British pop singer Dua…

The Soft Moon – “Choke”

Early next month, Luis Vasquez will release a new album under his moniker the Soft Moon titled Criminal. We've already heard previews of it with "Burn" and "It Kills," and now he's shared another new track called "Choke." The song picks up where its predecessors left off; it's another caustic and snarling piece of industrial-tinged…

August Greene – “Optimistic” (Feat. Brandy)

Renowned hip-hop artist and actor Common, drummer Karriem Riggins, and pianist Robert Glasper are set to release their first album under the moniker August Greene in March. For its lead single, the trio brought on the heart of '90s pop-R&B, Brandy, to cover Sounds Of Blackness' 1991 track "Optimistic." The song is typically carried by…

The Sea And Cake – “Any Day”

We haven't heard from sophisticated Chicago pop tinkerers the Sea And Cake in a while; their last album, Runner, came out about six years ago. But this spring, they'll return with the new LP Any Day, which features flute and clarinet from Brian Wilson collaborator Paul Von Mertens. They've just shared the album's title track,…

Kirin J Callinan Removed From Laneway Festival Lineup After Complaints

Kirin J Callinan was discreetly removed from the Laneway Festival 2018 lineup after organizers took heed of complaints over the Sydney-based provocateur's recent behavior. Last November, Callinan sparked controversy when he flashed his penis on the ARIA Awards red carpet. Though the act was undoubtedly grossly inappropriate, Callinan chose to expose himself during the least…

Jermaine Dupri Says That He Influenced Atlanta Hip-Hop Culture More Than OutKast Did

As a producer and a label boss, Atlanta rap veteran Jermaine Dupri had a huge impact on a whole lot of careers, helping to introduce people like Kriss Kross, Usher, Da Brat, and Bow Wow to the world, as well as making hit records on his own. He's a very important figure in the history…

U2 – “Get Out Of Your Own Way” Video

Big morning for vaguely political music videos from superstars! Earlier today, Justin Timberlake dropped his shooting-for-topicality clip for "Supplies." And now U2 have followed with an animated clip for "Get Out Of Your Own Way," from their new album Songs Of Experience. The video, which follows U2's clip for "You're The Best Thing About Me,"
