  • David Bowie Sue Or In A Season Of Crime Nothing Has Changed Stream

    Hear David Bowie's Monolithic, Jazzy 'Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)'

    Back in July, David Bowie promised "more music soon" to a charity event celebrating his 50-year career. It became apparent soon after that the music would take the form of a new single called "Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)" and career-spanning compilation cheekily named Nothing Has Changed. Today, after its premiere on Guy Garvey's BBC Radio 6 show, Consequence of Sound points out that a radio rip of that new single has surfaced on Youtube, and it's a doozy.Clocking in at over seven and a half minutes long, "Sue" offers a whole spectrum of serpentine jazz pop—chockfull of rubbery grooves indebted to krautrock and Bowie's ever-present high drama. As ever, production duties were handled by Tony Visconti, but this time the duo brought along the Maria Schneider Orchestra to handle the strings and brass that mark the tune.Pitchfork notes a few new details about the compilation.

    Pearl Jam Celebrated John Lennon's Birthday With Two Classic Covers

    Over the course of his career with Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder has offered a handful of recorded tributes to the legacy of John Lennon, so it's no secret that the Lightning Bolt singer is a big fan. Friday night, he made good on that longtime fandom and offered up a striking tribute in honor of what would have been the Beatles founder's 74th birthday. The Seattle quintet paused in the midst of their Lincoln, Nebraska set to offer up the Beatles' "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" and Lennon's solo classic "Imagine." Studio versions of both are available, the former thanks to the soundtrack of the 2001 film I Am Sam and the latter thanks to a recent cover for charity. You can watch video of "Imagine" above and "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" below via Consequence of Sound, alongside video of a location-specific cover of Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska track "Open All Night."

  • Nickelback Chad Kroeger London

    Chad Kroeger Thinks the Campaign to Keep Nickelback Out of London is 'Hilarious'

    A vehement Nickelback detractor by the name Craig Mandall launched a campaign last week to attempt to ban the Canadian band from performing in London ever again. At the time we said that there was about a "zero percent chance" of the band paying it any notice and singer Chad Kroeger has confirmed as much in an interview with The Pulse of Radio, via Metal Hammer, calling the campaign "hilarious.""[The] more controversy that surrounds either myself, my personal life, the band, whatever – I think it's hilarious," Kroeger explained. "All these critics, they're just tireless. They keep ragging on the band. If they had stopped writing all this stuff about us, there would be no controversy left in the band and we probably would have died out years ago.

  • Neil Young Whos Gonna Stand Up orchestra

    Neil Young Brings Along a 92-Piece Orchestra For 'Who's Gonna Stand Up?' Video

    Storytone, Neil Young's follow-up to the starkly lo-fi A Letter Home, comes in two distinct versions. One features just Young, much like his other recent scratchy solo work, but more enticingly the other version features a grandiose 92-piece orchestra and choir. We've already heard the sweeping and swooning rendition of "Who's Gonna Stand Up?," but today Rolling Stone has shared a video for the track that shows every bit of its elegant production. Alternating between Young recording his vocal take and the gigantic orchestral production, you get a real sense of the elaborate setup. Watch the whole clip above as you wait for Storytone, which comes out November 4 on Reprise.

  • Kendrick Lamar I Lyric Video

    Kendrick Lamar Offers More Empowering Self-Love in 'i' Lyric Video

    Though he still can't pin down a release date for his next full-length, Kendrick Lamar has still managed to stay busy as of late. After dropping a sunny new single called "i" and turning in one of the best guest spots on Flying Lotus' latest psychedelic death trip, he's now shared an appropriately uplifting lyric video for that solo track. Directed by Christian San Jose, the clip offers some more radical self-love, featuring all sorts of people performing the heart-shaped hand gesture from the single's cover artwork. There's also some jittery footage of the TDE top dog at a show and you can watch the whole above.

  • Karen O Holly Miranda Radiohead High Dry Indian Summer Doors Cover Video

    Watch Karen O and Her Band Somberly Cover the Doors and Radiohead

    On the back of her scratchy, subdued solo album Crush Songs, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O is in the midst of a string of stripped-down tour dates. Saturday night in London, in addition to those lo-fi solo songs, she and her band took on a couple of bonafide classics, the Doors "Indian Summer" and Radiohead's "High and Dry." Each of the covers offers a familiarly somber take on the tracks, but on the latter cover O's touring guitarist, Brooklyn folkie Holly Miranda, takes lead vocal duties while O looks on. Watch O do her best despondent Jim Morrison up above and watch Miranda take on Thom Yorke's pipes below via Pitchfork.

  • Radiohead New Song Spooks Inherent Vice

    Radiohead Reportedly Has a New Song Called 'Spooks' in 'Inherent Vice'

    Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood has a long established musical partnership with director Paul Thomas Anderson, but after contributing scores to 2007's There Will Be Blood and 2012's The Master, it seems that he's decided to give a little something extra to his soundtrack work on this year's Inherent Vice. In addition to the score, Slate reports that he's allowed an unreleased Radiohead cut called "Spooks" to make an appearance in the film. They describe the song as a new instrumental featuring "surf-rock guitar" and point to a live performance from 2006 where the band performs a track of the same name. You can check out that performance below, but you'll likely have to wait until the film's December 12 release to check out the studio version.

  • Beck Austin City Limits Full Episode Video

    Beck Kicked Off 'Austin City Limits' 40th Season With a Career-Spanning Set

    Austin City Limits, PBS' long-running music TV show, finally kicked off its 40th season on Saturday night after months of teasing the opening with mini-performances from Nine Inch Nails, Beck, and Foo Fighters. The show finally aired the full hour-long Beck episode, and it's just as exciting as all of the promo clips would've suggested. Though the setlist leans on his February LP Morning Phase, the show seems to have been a pretty accurate showcase of the Los Angeles experimentalist's recent tour, meaning there were requisite runs through "Loser," "Girl," "Where It's At," and a host of other hits. You can watch the whole thing above.
