NSYNC’s Joey Fatone is opening a new hot dog stand at the Florida Mall in Orlando, Billboard reports.

Deftones – “Prayers/Triangles (Com Truise Remix)”

Emotional metal stalwarts Deftones have enlisted LA producer Com Truise for an official remix of “Prayers/Triangles,” the lead single and opening track from their new album Gore.

Rae Sremmurd – “Do Yoga”

Mike Huckabee Paying $25K Settlement For Playing “Eye Of The Tiger” At Kim Davis Rally

Lately, we’ve seen a ton of stories about musicians asking politicians not to play certain songs at their rallies. We haven’t seen many about the politicians having to pay the musicians, but here’s one. Last year, when the Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis got out of jail after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex […]

The joyously jittery Seattle punks Tacocat released their Lost Time album earlier this year, and they’ve also been cranking out covers lately.

A$AP Ferg – “World Is Mine” (Feat. Big Sean) Video

March cover story star A$AP Ferg is still pushing the very good Always Strive And Prosper.

Suge Knight Sues Chris Brown For Getting Shot At His Party

Former Death Row Records label head turned homicidal, maniacal punchline Suge Knight was shot at a party at the 1 OAK nightclub hosted by Chris Brown in 2014.

Fujiya & Miyagi – “To The Last Beat Of My Heart” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Last month, Brighton krautpop band Fujiya & Miyagi released the first installment of a three-part EP series, simply denoted EP 1, which featured four tracks of artfully skewed electro-pop.

In a few weeks, Amanda Palmer is releasing an album with her father Jack, a semi-professional choral singer at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.

Eluvium – “Fugue State”

In the past couple of years, the Pacific Northwestern musician Matthew Cooper has recorded two albums with Inventions, his side-project duo with Explosions In The Sky member Mark T. Smith.

Obey City – “Airy (Jensen Sportag Alt. Take)” (Feat. Kelela) Video

Last year Brooklyn producer Obey City, aka Sam Obey, recruited R&B visionary Kelela for a hazy twilight ballad called “Airy.” The original track was amazing, and today there’s an equally good alternate version by Nashville duo Jensen Sportag from Obey City’s new Merlot Sounds: Alternate Versions EP. The original “Airy” was built on retro synths […]

Stream Broken Beak Some Nerve (Stereogum Premiere)

Some nerve: An indignant phrase, used to describe someone who has the courage or audacity to do something brave and reactionary, but none of the tact or sensibility to do so without upsetting everyone around them.

Fitness – “Receiver” (Feat. SHRAF)

Adam Moerder was the frontman of intense New York power trio Mr. Dream. But last year he introduced his new project, Fitness, with the Fitness EP.

Porches have been very busy playing shows since the release of their Domino Records debut Pool.

Rihanna – “Sledgehammer”

While other summer blockbuster movies like Ghostbusters and Suicide Squad are putting together soundtracks by haphazardly piling stars on songs together, credit Star Trek Beyond with getting one big song from one artist and realizing that that should be enough. “Sledgehammer,” the hew Rihanna track from the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack, is not a Peter […]
