• Morrissey Stream World Peace Is None of Your Business New Album

    Morrissey Streams Full, Anthemic LP 'World Peace Is None of Your Business'

    You've heard the singles, watched the live debuts, and seen the strange spoken word videos, but now Morrissey has finally bestowed his full 10th solo LP upon the world, over at NPR. World Peace Is None of Your Business was recorded in France with his touring lineup of guitarists Boz Boorer and Jesse Tobias, bassist Solomon Walker, and drummer Matthew Walker. Gustavo Manzur manned keyboards and Joe Chiccarelli (known for work with Beck and the Strokes) handled the production.This 12-track effort largely seems to follow in the tradition of the singles that have surfaced thus far, but Moz is incorporating a fair amount of weirdness (see the tortured outro of "Neal Cassady Drops Dead") into his swooning indie pop structures this time around.Despite all those tour cancellations, the follow-up to 2009's Years of Refusal is still due out July 15 on Harvest Records.

  • Pink Floyd The Endless River New Album

    Pink Floyd Announce Their First Album in 20 Years, 'The Endless River'

    It's been over 20 years since Pink Floyd released their last album The Division Bell, but it may not seem like that long, at least since erstwhile member Roger Waters has been touring The Wall perennially over the course of the last decade. Saturday, it became apparent that David Gilmour seeks to mark the anniversary with a new studio LP called The Endless River.Gilmour's wife Polly Samson broke the news to Twitter that the new addition to their expansive catalog (due out in October) is based on sessions that took place back in 1994 with Pink Floyd's late multi-instrumentalist Richard Wright.

  • Kanye West Fashion London Rant Video

    Kanye Unleashes Auto-Tuned Tirade Against Racism in the Fashion Industry

    If it seemed like Kanye West has spent the better part of the last few months with his head down working on the follow-up to Yeezus, this past weekend served as a potent reminder that the man still loves to preach. While filling in for Drake at London's Wireless Festival, NME reports, Yeezy paused during his performance of "Runaway" for one of his now-patented speeches, this time directed at what he perceives to be racism in the fashion industry.After briefly talking about how he can't be controlled by the media—at the 4:30 mark in the above video—he launches into the usual self-motivational fare ("as far as I'm concerned everybody is a star"), but it isn't until he takes aim at fashion houses that the speech becomes terribly substantive."I'm not going to call no names, I’m not going to say Nike or anything," West begins around the nine-and-a-half-minute mark.

  • Nile Rodgers Prince David Bowie Let's Dance Video

    Nile Rodgers and Prince Funk Up David Bowie's 'Let's Dance'

    Following high-profile 2013 collaborations with Daft Punk, Disclosure, and Avicii, Nile Rodgers has spent the better part of this year in the midst of a solo career resurgence. Last week, he released the hedonistic disco jam "Do What You Wanna Do," and he's currently in the midst of a string of big festival dates under his own name. Over the weekend, he made a stop at New Orleans' Essence Festival where he enlisted none other than Prince for a cover of David Bowie's "Let's Dance."Rodgers produced the original incarnation of the track, but the Purple One's lead guitar fireworks give the live cut a special kind of spark. You can watch some footage, mostly of Prince's guitar work, above via Consequence of Sound.

  • Bruce Springsteen Jeopardy Category Video

    'Jeopardy!' Category Tests Your Knowledge of Bruce Springsteen

    The folks over at Jeopardy! are still apparently on a music kick. Thursday night, rather than test competitors with buzz bands (who are Haim?) oralt-rock(who are Nine Inch Nails?) they trained their gaze on one of the titans of late 20th century Americana, Bruce Springsteen.All of the other categories in the show's first round also bore Springsteen-related names ("Born in the U.S.A.," "Glory Days," "Cover Me," "The Ghost of Tom Joad," and "The 'E' Street Band"), but a category called "Bruce Springsteen" assessed the contestants' knowledge of the man's music.What track was "proposed as New Jersey's state song...despite two suicide mentions?" What song did Springsteen originally intend for the Ramones? To which city did he offer greetings on his debut album?

  • Faith No More New Song Leader of Men London

    Faith No More Debut Stormy New Songs in London

    Back in May, Faith No More launched a Twitter account and announced their first full-fledged reunion shows since 2012. At the time, singer Mike Patton hinted at the possibility of the band's first new material in over 15 years. Friday during their set opening for Black Sabbath at London's Hyde Park, the singer with the world's greatest vocal range in rock and his band came through on those intimations with performances of two new songs.Based on the fan-shot footage alone, as-yet-untitled new tracks seem to be a return to the band's stormy late '80s heyday. Check out clips of the first new song they performed above and the second below, via Faith No More Blog.

  • Motorhead Head Banging Brain Bleeding Injury Study

    Metal Health: Doctors Say Headbanging Caused Motorhead Fan's Brain Injury

    Even aside from the more obvious perils of flailing limbs, angry burly men, and simulated bodily fluids, it turns out there may be some serious health risks involved with attending metal concerts. According to a new case study published in the medical journal The Lancet (via The Daily Beast), a German man suffered bleeding in the right side of his brain following some vigorous headbanging at a Motörhead concert.After experiencing of increasingly worse headaches over the course of the few weeks following the concert, the man went to Germany’s Hannover Medical School where a CT scan turned up a chronic subdural hematoma.

  • Andre 3000 Jimi Hendrix Biopic Film Trailer Video

    Andre 3000 Shreds in Trailer for Jimi Hendrix Biopic

    Almost two full years after Andre 3000 first talked to us about his role in the new Jimi Hendrix biopic, Jimi: All Is By My Side, the film finally has an official trailer. We've already seen a brief clip of Dre interacting with co-star Imogen Poots, and heard details of six-hour guitar practices, but now we can get a wider sense of what he's bringing to the role.There's the requisite shredding sprinkled throughout the trailer, but director John Ridley (who won an Oscar last year for 12 Years a Slave) mostly uses the clip as a means of playing up the film's philosophical discourse. Watch the trailer above and catch Jimi: All Is By My Side in theaters on September 26.

  • Blackbird Blackbird Love Unlimited Video

    Blackbird Blackbird Sparks Psychedelic Romance in 'Love Unlimited' Video

    San Francisco's Mikey Maramag has spent the better part of the last five years crafting beat-based dream-pop under the moniker Blackbird Blackbird (previously: Bye Bye Blackbird). He emerged early last month with a new, futuristic LP called Tangerine Sky for Om Records and now he's shared the kaleidoscopic video for "Love Unlimited," one of that record's breezy standouts. The clip, directed by Larkin Donley and Govind Rae, details the beginning of a slow motion romance, and when our two stars eventually touch it unleashes some pulsing polychromatic imagery that functions as pretty salient visual analog to Maramag's work. Stream the video above.

  • Shellac Dude Incredible New Album Announce

    Steve Albini's Shellac Announce First Album in Seven Years, 'Dude Incredible'

    It's hard to say that someone as famously outspoken as Steve Albini has remained quiet over the last few years, but his musical outlet Shellac hasn't made a ton of noise since 2007's roiling rifle crack, the Excellent Italian Greyhound LP. Though the Chicago trio has their share of live dates lined up, they've now announced their proper return with a new album called Dude Incredible.By all accounts, the In Utero producer has stayed pretty busy in the years between Shellac full-lengths, handling production work for Cloud Nothings, Screaming Females, and Neurosis (not to mention palling around with Lil Bub). But somehow he found the time over the last couple of years to make this new record at his Electrical Audio studio.Find the cover art and track listing for Dude Incredible below.Dude Incredible track list: 1. "Dude Incredible"2. "Compliant"3.
