• Yoon Mi Rae Tiger JK Sue Legal Action The Interview

    Two K-Pop Stars Threaten to Sue Over 'The Interview'

    The list of people outraged by James Franco and Seth Rogen's new comedy The Interview is a long one at this point, but two K-pop stars may have a more justified anger than most. As Billboard points out, Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae, a husband and wife duo who has collaborated on a number of occasions, alleged on Friday that their song "Pay Day" was used in the film without permission. Understandably, the duo and their agency FeelGhoodMusic seem a bit upset, especially given that there were talks at first to license the track to the film."There were initial discussions about including the song in the film score, but negotiations stopped so we were under the impression that it wasn't happening," A press release reads.

  • Ariana Grande Weeknd Love Me Harder Acoustic Video Stream

    Watch Ariana Grande and the Weeknd's Stark Acoustic Video for 'Love Me Harder'

    Since releasing her pop-art masterwork My Everything back in August, Ariana Grande has turned out a bombastic track for Lorde's star-studded Mockingjay soundtrack, and planned (but then scrapped) a rework of the "The Boy is Mine," as well a couple of strange videos for the singles from that record. But none of those clips have been as intimate and stripped-down as the new acoustic performance clip for her collaboration with the Weeknd "Love Me Harder." Featuring no accompaniment other than a single acoustic guitar, the ex-Nickelodeon star and singer Abel Tesfaye turn out a stark rendition of the otherwise sensual track. You can catch the video in full above, which features stunning vocal performances from both of the singers.

  • Will Butler Christmas 2014 Policy Single Stream

    Arcade Fire's Will Butler Gets Reverential on 'Christmas 2014'

    Arcade Fire's Will Butler is set to release his debut solo album Policy in March, but for those who couldn't wait any longer for more new material from the younger Butler brother, he decided to share a holiday single called "Christmas 2014" on Thursday. Reverential in tone and composition, Butler sighs his way through a series of religious images while gently plucking away at the piano keys. As a ballad in the most classic sense, it's a more staid affair than "Take My Side," the only full taste of Policy so far. It portends pretty great things for his forthcoming solo record, even if this two-minute tune is just a castoff Christmas-themed track. You can stream this cut below, and be sure to look for Policy on March 10 via Merge Records.

    Hear Grimes' Goofy, 'Grinch'-Referencing Holiday Track 'Christmas Song II'

    While we're getting belated holiday gifts from all over the dial, few of the musical presents have been as full of the specific campy joy of the season as a track that Grimes released Friday called "Christmas Song II (grinch)." Produced in collaboration with her stepbrother Jay Worthy and her partner James Brooks (who's known for his Elite Gymnastics and Default Genders projects), this new holiday cut is a Charlie Brown Christmas-sampling rap track that features Grimes on the delightfully profane chorus ("It's motherfucking Christmas! / I'm the Grinch, motherfucker!").Brooks surrealist poetry and Worthy's similarly goofy wordplay make for pretty stark contrast to the sugar-rush chorus, but it all melds together in a fairly heartwarming way.

  • Diplo Skrillex Jack U Beyonce 7/11 remix

    Diplo and Skrillex Give Beyonce's '7/11' a Caffeinated Remix

    Diplo has already been a part of a couple of more official Christmas presents this year, but as he continues his seasonal giving, he's proving himself to be a real Kris Kringle. After dropping his own label's holiday comp and letting loose a couple of Madonna songs he produced, the superproducer's stopped by the holiday party for Skrillex's label OWSLA and joined up with that other EDM godhead for one of their famed Jack Ü DJ sets. During that performance, they offered up a new overcaffeinated remix of Beyoncé's recent single "7/11," which smears the original in neon-tinted synths and big booming kick drums. There's no CD quality version yet, so you'll have to settle for a rip from the party's livestream, via Pretty Much Amazing, but you can hear that below.

  • David Fincher Music Video TV Show HBO

    David Fincher Set to Direct HBO Show About Music Video Industry

    Fresh off the success of Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways and the announcement of another music-related project helmed by Martin Scorsese, HBO has announced that David Fincher will be coming back to the cable network to direct a comedy about the music video industry in the early '80s. The cimmerian director, who's worked with SPIN favorite Trent Reznor on a number of his recent films, got his start behind the camera on a number of music videos for Madonna, the Rolling Stones and more, so this show will presumably draw on those experiences.Titled Living on Video, according to Deadline, the show will take place in Los Angeles in 1983 where a college dropout named Bobby is now residing, with dreams in his head of crafting sci-fi films.

  • Q-Tip Hip Hop History Iggy Azalea Azealia Banks Twitter Beef

    Q-Tip Enlightens Iggy Azalea on the History of Hip-Hop

    If you haven't been following the long-simmering Twitter spat between two of the year's most outspoken rappers Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks, well you honestly haven't missed too much. But in recent days, things have heated up just a bit, causing Action Bronson to awkwardly stumble into the fold, and even drawing the ire of Anonymous, who are threatening to leak Azelea's sex tape if she doesn't apologize to Banks. But as the Fader points out, a more level head has stepped up in the form of Q-Tip in an attempt to educate the Australian-born rapper in the intrinsically political history of hip-hop.

  • Black Dynamite Tyler the Creator Erykah Badu Police Brutality Musical

    Adult Swim's 'Black Dynamite' Plans Police Brutality Musical With Tyler, the Creator, Erykah Badu

    Over the course of its two seasons, Adult Swim's blaxploitation parody Black Dynamite has occasionally enlisted some pretty special guests (including an inspired casting this season of Chance the Rapper as Bob Marley). But according to Pitchfork, January 10 may offer a couple of the most noteworthy guest turns yet. Featuring Tyler, the Creator and Erykah Badu, "The Wizard of Watts" will be a musical episode about "police brutality."Michael Jai White's Black Dynamite generally does his share of crime-fighting and this episode will detail the hallucinations he suffers after he gets hit in the head with a brick during a Watts Riot. Actor Tim Blake Nelson and comedian J.B. Smoove will also appear in the episode, but it's unclear just what roles any of these special guests will be playing. The hourlong special will air on January 10 at 10:30 p.m.

  • One Direction Saturday Night Live Amy Adams

    One Direction Make a Swooning Return to 'Saturday Night Live'

    Just a month after shirking their boy-band roots on their latest studio LP Four, One Direction made their subdued return to Saturday Night Live. While Amy Adams hosted the episode, the British quintet offered up just a little few of the sugar rush rock hits that can be found on Four. With little more theatricality than a handful of all-black ensembles and 30 Rock's Christmas lights as accompaniment for their soaring new material, the band ran through a couple of U2-indebted cuts from the record, "Ready to Run" and "Night Changes." You can catch the former up above and the latter bellow, alongside the cold open of the show in which Taran Killam offers a pretty hilarious parody of Sam Smith's performance style.

  • Nine Inch Nails Live Bootleg Archive Torrent Download

    Fan Compiles Massive Nine Inch Nails Bootleg Archive

    If you didn't manage to catch Nine Inch Nails on their most recent tour with Soundgarden, well, here's a bit of good news. Thanks to the efforts of a Trent Reznor megafan, you can now download over a half of a terrabyte's worth of live bootlegs of the former SPIN cover stars, and all in one tidy torrent. Over at NINLive.com, as Radio.com points out, you can now snag 527 GB of live recordings that span 900 audio sources and 575 different shows from across the industrial band's entire career. Obviously, there's few fans out there with that much space sitting on their computer's hard drive, so you're going to need an external (the site's administrator recommends one with at least 750 free GB). And if you're unable to put that sort of load on your internet, you can even mail a drive to the site and they'll put the whole thing on there for you.
