• Kanye West Made in America Full Set Video

    Kanye West Begs for a Mosh Pit at Philadelphia's Made in America Festival

    Jay Z's Labor Day weekend festival Made in America managed to snag none other than Kanye West to headline both its Philadelphia and Los Angeles incarnations. Lest you expect that he's tamed his live set in the wake of his high-concept Yeezus shows, he put on a performance as spirited as ever, but devoid of the usual sort of industry tirades and self-reflective rants.The whole set was streamed live, and fortunately it's been preserved online. So you can catch Yeezus in all his glory, speaking positively of tabloid papers and begging the crowd form a circle pit and start moshing during his encore performance of "Blood on the Leaves." It's all triumphant stuff and you should watch the first half above and the second half below via Pitchfork. The Made in America live stream continues today over at the festival's website.

  • Courtney Love Memoir Paper Magazine Interview Hole Reunion

    Courtney Love Says Writing Her Memoir Has Been a 'Nightmare'

    Courtney Love's memoir The Girl With the Most Cake was rumored to hit stores in December of last year. But in a new interview with Paper Magazine (via Consequence of Sound) he Hole founder has made it clear that it still isn't finished and the process of writing it hasn't quite been the best experience of her life."It's a disaster," Love said of the working draft of her book. "A nightmare. I never wanted to write a book in my entire life. It just sort of happened."Love has been working with a co-writer on the memoir, but she says "it's just not working." So be prepared to wait a little while longer for the salacious details of Love's life. Even when it does drop, however, don't count on much recent news."One of my rules about the book is that it has to stop in 2006," she explains.

  • Foo Fighters Sonic Highways Teaser

    Foo Fighters Tease Their 'Sonic Highways' Album With More Rip-Roaring Riffage

    We're still a couple of months away from the November 10 release date of Foo Fighters' eighth studio album Sonic Highways, but yesterday the band posted on Twitter that they had received test pressings of the new record. In addition to a photo of the wax, as Consequence of Sound notes, Dave Grohl and co. also shared another eight-second clip of the actual music. Unlike the throat-shredding acapella that the last little clip offered, this one is pure instrumental guitar riffing—an all-too-brief blitz of the sort of flailing leads that you've come to expect from the quintet. You can listen below, via a Tweet from the head of Twitter Music, or at the Foos' Facebook page. And if November seems like way too of a wait for more, remember that Grohl's HBO show debuts sooner, on October 17.Holy guitars, Batman! New @foofighters record makes 'em sound 100 feet tall.

  • Meghan Trainor All About That Bass Koyote Happy Mode Phish Contact Plagiarism Stream

    Meghan Trainor Stole Her Butt Song From a K-Pop Group, or Phish, or Neither

    With "All About That Bass," singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor asserted herself as one of the major players in the Summer of Ass. But as that track continues to climb the Billboard charts, people across the Internet are pointing to some striking similarities to a hit from across the Pacific Ocean. As Oh No They Didn't points out, a couple of different comparison clips have been put together to show the likeness between Trainor's song and a 2006 track by the wildly popular K-pop group Koyote called "Gippeummodeu" or "Happy Mode."Listen to this oddly fitting, very surreal-sounding mash-up:It's enough to make "Happy Mode" songwriter Joo Young Hoon tweet that he's consulting a lawyer, according to Google's rough translation.

  • QT Hey QT Sophie PC Music AG Cook Stream

    Like Aqua's 'Barbie Girl' Through a Funhouse Mirror, Meet SOPHIE

    U.K. producer SOPHIE just issued a captivating caffeine-addled 12-inch featuring recent singles "Lemonade" and "Hard," but he's already back again — this time in with QT, a new project that he and PC Music labelhead A.G. Cook have handled production for. Today, they shared their demented first single, a funhouse mirror version of something that Aqua (yes, the "Barbie Girl" dweebs) might have put out called "Hey QT." If you're having trouble parsing exactly what all this means, hit play below, and know that two of the weirdest and most exciting producers in the game right now have teamed up with XL Recordings for a pop project. But if you haven't heard word of SOPHIE yet, it's probably advisable to read on.Despite the name, when we saw SOPHIE at SXSW this year he appeared to be a redheaded boy in his early 20s.

  • Rick Rubin ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Video

    Of Course Rick Rubin's #IceBucketChallenge Is an Avant-Garde Short Film

    We've finally reached the avant-garde stage of the Ice Bucket Challenge. As the charity fad rolls on, celebrities are less and less content to merely dump buckets of ice on their heads. But rather than go for big-budget parody like Dave Grohl, super-producer Rick Rubin aimed for something a little more strange.Backed by Steve Reich's tape loop classic "It's Gonna Rain," the Yeezus architect dumps a bunch of buckets of ice into a tub before submerging himself into the freezing bath. It's pretty much the reverse of what everyone else is doing, but it's that sort of thinking that's made him such an in-demand producer to start with right? At the end, he worldlessly nominates fellow weirdos Vincent Gallo (Buffalo '66) and Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers), as well as alt-R&B superstar Frank Ocean.

  • Ryan Adams Punk EP 1984 Limited Edition Stream

    Ryan Adams Made a Really Great Punk Album and You Can Stream It Now

    Ryan Adams has pretty much always been about trying to do absolutely everything all of the time and 2014 hasn't been an exception. In addition to hanging with Elvira, producing for Jenny Lewis, and prepping his next solo LP, he's also recently released a punk-rock-inspired EP called 1984, and as Stereogum points out it's recently made its way onto the Internet thanks to a fan who recorded the thing straight from the vinyl and looped it on YouTube.Channelling the Replacements' twanging, rootsy take on punk signifiers, 1984 is 10 (very) short tracks' worth of fizzing guitars and tortured Adams vocals. It's a far cry from the melodic swoons that mark "Gimme Something Good," his other recent single, but the crackling energy makes it compelling in its own right. 1984 is out now via Pax-Am, though the 7-inch looks like it might already be sold out. Listen below.

  • Morrissey Label Dropped Tour

    Did Morrissey Force His Label to Pull His Album From Digital Stores?

    Morrissey's ongoing dispute with Harvest Records is turning out to be a classic case of "he said, label said." After weeks firing back and forth about his supposed departure from the label's stable, the former Smiths frontman finally saw his recent solo album World Peace Is None of Your Business pulled from digital shelves last week. If it seemed a little fishy that the English singer predicted the move a day before it happened, well, a source tells Billboard that Morrissey might have had a little more to do with it than he's letting on.Despite still contending that Morrissey has not been dropped by Harvest, an unnamed source said that "out of deference to his request they have reluctantly removed his album from all services."So maybe the "Istanbul" singer "suspected" that the record was going to disappear because he told them to pull it.

  • ISIS metal band terrorist group Palms

    Please Stop Confusing Isis the Metal Band With ISIS the Terrorist Group

    As the terrorist group ISIS continues to gain prominence and infamy in the wake of the beheading of American journalist James Foley, the influential metal band of the same name is also facing some unintended consequences, according to ABC News.After receiving a number of "off-color comments" on their Facebook page, the doom-y post-metal crew was forced to change their name on the site from "ISIS" to "Isis the band.""Fans have emailed us that they're reluctant to wear our T-shirts now and we've also gotten some off-color comments," drummer Aaron Harris said. "Just like our fans, we've been watching the news in disbelief. We haven't commented on it because we haven't been an active band since 2010, even though our music does live on.
