• Kanye West Black Bruce Wayne

    Kanye West's 'Black Bruce Wayne' Snippet Purportedly Leaks for $500

    Kanye West songs don't usually pop up out of nowhere, but today thanks to the obsessive fan forum KanyeToThe, we have 32 seconds of a purported new track called "Black Bruce Wayne."According to Consequence of Sound, the snippet comes via a forum member who claimed to have bought it for $500. That's a hefty price for any track, let alone a clip that doesn't break the minute mark.

  • St Vincent Nirvana Lithium Official Video

    Here's Pro Footage of St. Vincent and Nirvana Playing 'Lithium'

    HBO is set to air the full footage of this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday, May 31. To tease that broadcast, as Consequence of Sound points out, today they've released a little morsel of St. Vincent's performance of "Lithium" with the living members of Nirvana.We've witnessed St. Vincent perform this song before with her band, and we've seen cellphone footage of that night's rendition, but man, does it feel like something special in this 42-second clip. It's just enough to make you want to borrow your parents' HBO Go password and watch the whole thing, which will also ostensibly feature Lorde, Joan Jett, and Kim Gordon's history-making appearances with Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl.

  • Pulp Documentary Life Death Supermarkets Trailer Video

    Watch Pulp's Cheery Trailer for 'A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets'

    We first heard news of a new Pulp doc back in February when it was set to premiere at SXSW as Sheffield: Sex City. Now that film has a trailer and is prepared for a wider release in the U.K, under a new name: Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets. The movie centers on the band's relationship to its hometown of Sheffield, England, and a 2012 reunion show they played there — which is incidentally their last show that didn't take place at sea.The film screened a couple of weeks ago at Cannes, but the UK and Ireland release begins June 6. According to a note from Jarvis Cocker, the European premiere takes place on June 7 at Sheffield City Hall, where the band will participate in a Q&A about the film hosted by Mark Radcliffe.

  • Beats Music Apple Deal Price Cut

    Beats Music Lowers Fee After Apple Buyout, Undercuts Spotify

    Just a day after Apple's multi-billion-dollar buyout of the Beats brand, the newly coupled companies have announced a price drop for their streaming music service. Prior to today's announcement, a Beats Music yearly subscription ran United States customers $119.98, but now it'll only cost you a cool $99.99. That said, the $20 deduction — less about 17 percent of the total — unfortunately only applies to a full, yearly subscription. The price for monthly access still stands at the industry standard of $9.99.The Hollywood Reporter hypothesizes that the Apple partnership has allowed the start of a price war with other streaming services. Apple takes 30 percent of in-app purchases from most streaming services, so Beats previous in-app purchases of year-long subscriptions were costing them approximately $36 per customer.

  • Merchandise Little Killer After The End

    Watch Merchandise's Kaleidoscopic, Moody 'Little Killer' Video

    The always-busy Tampa, Florida band Merchandise has been in flux since the release of their expansive and psychedelic 2013 LP Totale Nite. The few tracks they've released in the interim have largely stripped back the experimentation in favor of more direct melodicism, and a new single "Little Killer," from August 26 LP After The End, confirms that more "pop" route.In the time since Totale Nite the band's beefed up their lineup, supplanting their trusty drum machine with hardcore drummer Elsner Nino and adding another guitarist, Chris Horn.

  • Miguel Simple Things Girls Video

    See Miguel's Monochromatic, Slo-Mo 'Simple Things' Video

    Miguel is hard at work on his third collection of auteurist R&B, but he's emerged today with a fresh video for his Girls track "Simple Things." Released back in February for the hit HBO show, that track was the same kind of smoky, slow-burner that made Kaleidoscope Dream the bewitching debut that it was. Miguel's self-directed clip for the track takes aim at the same sort of emotional centers with its striking black-and-white cinematography and constant slow motion. And aside from some ham-fisted symbolism involving a pair of wild dogs, it lands its otherwise effortlessly cool punches as well as its author lands a leg drop (sorry). You can watch that clip above.

  • Kanye J Dilla Stones Throw Documentary Video

    Kanye West Extols J Dilla in Stones Throw Documentary Bonus Video

    Stones Throw has been capitalizing on its ravenous crate-digging for the better part of two decades now, and this week the omnivorous Los Angeles hip-hop label's documentary Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton hits Blu-Ray and DVD. Here to mark that release are 30 minutes of extra footage, released in the form of the special feature Extra Special Loving for the People. In it, among other things, Kanye West discusses the enduring influence of J Dilla.The video, via Rolling Stone, mixes production outtakes, interviews, and old concert footage. West talks about Madlib's fractured production work around the 22-minute mark and hints that he wants to work with the Beat Konducta again on future projects. But the most substantive bit of this whole B-reel is Kanye's meditation on the music of J Dilla."It's amazing," the Yeezus rapper says.

  • Pixies Silver Snail Indie Cindy Video

    Watch Pixies' Icy, Abstract 'Silver Snail' Video

    The Pixies released their first studio album in over two decades, Indie Cindy, back in April and today they've emerged with a mobius strip of a music video for "Silver Snail" (via The Wall Street Journal).The Mount Emult-directed clip is just another in the series of high-minded visuals that accompany the project, but this one is particularly elusive. A man drags a load across a frozen field, is taken captive by men in masks, and then ... it just starts again. It's a four-minute take on Lost Highway's mechanics, but without any of the stuff that makes that movie make any sense.Check it out and be baffled above.

  • Mike Patton Actually Has the Biggest Vocal Range in Pop Music

    Mike Patton Actually Has the Biggest Vocal Range in Pop Music

    UPDATE: Axl Rose sent us a letter about being dubbed the "World's Greatest Singer."In celebration of the Billboard Music Awards last week, Concert Hotels put together a little chart to show off the vocal ranges of a handful of the greatest singers in popular music and found the likes of Axl Rose and Mariah Carey sitting on top. They missed a few names though, naturally, and (even more naturally) the Internet was pissed, so VVN Music took it upon themselves to investigate further. Now Mike Patton tops the list with his massive, six-octave range.The Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, etc., etc. singer comes in above Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Diamanda Galás, and David Lee Roth, all of whom bested Axl's five-octave range. Ville Valo of HIM, Nina Hagen, Roger Waters, Carey, and Devin Townsend round out the new top 10.

  • No Age Pissed Jeans Rat Fist

    No Age + Pissed Jeans = Rat Fist, Stream 'Disrupt Yr DNA'

    In a SPIN profile last year about Pissed Jeans, No Age's Randy Randall spoke about the closeness he felt to the fellow Sub Pop punks. Now, he's formed a band with one-fourth of that band, drummer Sean McGuinness."Hardcore and punk entered our DNA at the right time and changed our lives forever," he said at the time. "There's an element of challenge in there, almost this disregard for the industry side of things, like, 'We get it, but there's not much we can do to fit in.'"Now Randall and McGuinness are sticking out together as Rat Fist, and single "Disrupt Yr DNA" seems to split the difference between the two bands pretty well.
