• The Wrens New Album Meadowlands Complete

    The Wrens Have Finally Finished Their 'Meadowlands' Follow-Up

    After a decade of toiling away at their now-mythological follow-up to 2003's The Meadowlands, guitarist Charles Bissell has announced that the Wrens have finally completed their new album.In a blog post to the band's website, the guitarist notes that a recent battle with a combination of strep and pneumonia, which led to complications like a collapsed lung and renal failure, prompted the final push to complete the album."For me personally, this whole thing has changed a bunch of stuff," Bissell wrote. "Including priorities that have kept me toiling away on music to the exclusion of a lot of other things. So that'll change. Not sure what that means but it'll be a lot more healthy.

    Wu-Tang Clan's 'A Better Tomorrow' Video Compiles Protest Footage From New York, Ferguson

    Wu-Tang Clan's reunion record A Better Tomorrow was released earlier this week, and today, the Staten Island crew decided to share a timely video for the title track from that record. Compiling footage from recent protests in Ferguson, Missouri and New York City over the failure to indict two police officers involved in the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, respectively, the video seeks to underscore the track's cries for social upheaval. The video also includes clips of President Barack Obama's recent comments on the subject and concludes with an ominous slide that asks "when will it end?" You can watch the video up above.

    Jonah Hill Rapped a Drake Song, Jarvis Cocker Covered Celine Dion at Vice's 20th Birthday

    Vice Magazine turns 20 years old in 2014 and Friday night was their exclusive shindig in celebration, and from the accounts that have come out thus far, it seems to have been a pretty surreal sort of affair. The announced lineup for the party, which featured the likes of Lil Wayne, Jarvis Cocker, Stephen Malkmus and more, would've already been enough to provide a special night for attendees, but each of these luminaries and their surprise guests dedicated themselves to keeping the crowd on their toes.

  • Smashing Pumpkins Marilyn Manson Ava Adore London Monuments Video

    Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson Made Peace For Grimy 'Ava Adore' Performance

    The Smashing Pumpkins first album with Motley Crue's Tommy Lee, Monuments to an Elegy, hit the internet last week, and to celebrate the band is taking a brief spin through a few venues that are a little more intimate than the spots they usually hit. But if that weren't enough to make these few shows special, as Stereogum points out, Marilyn Manson dropped by the encore of the legendary alt-rockers London set at the Koko on Friday night for grimy and stunning performances of "Ava Adore" and his own new single "Third Day of a Seven Day Binge."Earlier this week, a picture of Courtney Love, Billy Corgan, and Manson surfaced on Instagram, suggesting that the Pumpkins frontman's respective feuds with each of the other alt-rock icons had come to a close, but this performance serves as compelling confirmation.

  • Diplo Mad Decent Christmas Album Stream

    Diplo and Mad Decent Put Together Another EDM Christmas Album

    Though known for his place at the vanguard of big tent electronic music and for beefing with Taylor Swift, the amount of holiday spirit that Diplo exhibits on a yearly basis flies under the radar. Now that Thanksgiving has passed, the superproducer has decided that it's time for the second annual mixtape of EDM interpretations of Christmas classics featuring friends and family of his Mad Decent label. Featuring tracks such as "The Nutcracka" (a remix of Tchaikovsky's theme from the ballet) and "Twerkith on These Bells," which interpolates a bit of the melody from "Joy to the World," A Very, Very Decent Christmas is out now and is available to stream both below and at the Mad Decent Soundcloud.

  • Jack White Paramount Records Box Set CBS This Morning

    Jack White Talks the 'Lost Treasures' of Paramount Records Box Set on 'CBS This Morning'

    Last year, Jack White unleashed the first ornate installment of a series of box sets compiling the collected releases of Wisconson blues label Paramount Records. In spite of mounting concerns about copyright issues, the second installment sees release Monday, December 1 and the Lazaretto singer took some time out of his busy tour schedule to stop by CBS This Morning and talk about the new set with host Anthony Mason. As Mason point out, the two sets of "lost treasures" may run you "about a month of mortgage payments" (or $800 at the Third Man Records webstore), but for White it mostly just served to show off "how ludicrous that [he] could be, really, with [his] free time." You can watch the segment up above. 

  • Mac DeMarco Attacked Still Together 2 Eric Andre Show

    Mac DeMarco Performs 'Still Together,' Gets Tortured on 'The Eric Andre Show'

    The closest thing Mac DeMarco has to a kindred spirit in the TV world might be Adult Swim's resident late night weirdo Eric André, so the guitar-pop provocateur's appearance on the latter's Eric André Show earlier this week seems on paper a match made in heaven. In practice, things naturally got a little strange. All of André's musical guests over time have something odd to deal with, but after the Salad Days singer and his band launched into "Still Together" from 2012's charming 2, he got the worst of it. André announces that it's "time for Attack DeMarco" at which point a group of samurai ran from back stage and began choking and beating him with sticks before repeatedly shoving his face into a nude man's unmentionables. You can watch the whole clip above via Stereogum.

  • Interpol What is What El Pintor B Side Shepard Fairey Mural Stream

    Interpol Let Everyone Know 'What Is What' on Stormy Single

    Famed street artist and clothing merchant Shepard Fairey teamed up with Interpol for the artwork for their 2004 album Antics, but he's teamed with the former SPIN cover stars again this weekend according to his website. Fairey created a mural inspired by the El Pintor track "Everything Is Wrong" and while explaining the track on his website, noted how fans might come upon a stormy bonus track called "What Is What." If you go to the band's new website and type in "Everything Is Wrong," you'll gain a download of that single as well as the new B-side. You can snag it here or hear it below. Fairey's mural is up above, which features the anagrams "The Very Growing Sin" and "Every Wrong Insight." He says the piece explores "the idea of being complicit in a personal relationship or a relationship with a system that one realizes is unhealthy."

  • Robert Pattinson Death Grips Birds Guitarist Stream

    Death Grips Are #TeamEdward After All, Robert Pattinson Played Guitar on 'Birds'

    Back when Twilight star Robert Pattinson started showing up in pictures with Zach Hill and MC Ride, people started speculating that maybe one of the Death Grips members was branching out into filmmaking. But now over a year later the nature of the actor's collaboration has become clear. As a Redditor who scooped up the Record Store Day Black Friday vinyl release of 2013's Government Plates points out, it turns out that Pattinson played the twittering guitar on that album's "Birds." This revelation highlights something of an avant-garde streak for the actor. After acting in a Don Delillo adaptation, he's now dating FKA twigs, and just got himself a totally confounding haircut, so in retrospect—maybe this whole friendship with our favorite punk rap provocateurs makes a little more sense than it did at the time.For a refresher, listen to "Birds" below.

  • Scott Stapp Psychiatric Hold Court Documents Divorce Jaclyn Stapp

    Scott Stapp's Wife Requests He Undergo 60-Day Psychiatric Hold

    Just two days after Scott Stapp posted a rambling video to Facebook in which he claimed to be homeless, as Rolling Stone points out, more details of the Creed singer's recent troubles have emerged. According to court documents that TMZ has reportedly acquired in conjunction with the singer's ongoing divorce from his wife Jaclyn Stapp, the frontman might not be as sober as he purported in that initial video, which may have led to him being placed on temporary psychiatric hold by police earlier this month.According to a Madison County, Florida Sheriff's Department report from November 13 that TMZ acquired, deputies came upon Stapp in his car on the side of the road at which point he was "wasted, incoherent and rambling that someone was trying to poison him." At that time, Stapp was placed on an involuntary 72-hour psychiatric hold before he was eventually released.
