• Eminem Rihanna MTV Movie Awards Jack White

    Watch Jack White, Eminem, Rihanna, and More at the MTV Movie Awards

    After rehashing Eminem's trouble past in the music video for "The Monster," Mr. Slim Shady and Rihanna took to the MTV Movie Awards to perform the The Marshall Mathers LP 2 standout. The duo prowled the large stage at Los Angeles' Staples Center, with Rihanna clad in a puffy white jacket reminiscent of Missy Elliott's old style — plus a headband that said "Fear," for some reason. The appearance comes in advance of their co-headlining, three-date "Monster" stadium tour, which kicks off August 7 at L.A.'s Rose Bowl. At the top of the broadcast, host Conan O'Brien had a funny segment in which he attempted to get 50 celebrity cameos in the span of a few minutes, overloading on the star power to please the young MTV fans.

  • Sigur Ros 'The Rains of Castamere' 'Game of Thrones'

    Hear Sigur Ros' Haunting 'The Rains of Castamere' for 'Game of Thrones'

    We're not spoiling anything by saying that the most recent twist-heavy Game of Thrones episode featured Sigur Rós as a wedding band, performing the folk song "Rains of Castamere." It's not as heavy as the National's previous rendition, but it's eerie nonetheless, thanks to Jónsi's ethereal vocals and the squawks of birds in the background. Here's hoping that George R. R. Martin somehow finds a way to get Big Boi involved in the next wedding, as the Outkast rapper contributed the track "Mother of Dragons" to the Game of Thrones mixtape. Meantime, enjoy Sigur Rós' contribution to the series below (download it via iTunes). Speaking in Tongues: A Conversation With Sigur Rós' Jónsi

  • Beck Coachella 2014 set video

    Watch Beck's Career-Spanning Coachella Set

    As the final appetizer to Arcade Fire's main course on the closing night of Coachella's first weekend, Beck performed at the California festival for the first time in nine years, delivering a career-spanning set that mixed his hits with a few curveballs. Following the one-two punch of "Devil's Haircut" and "Loser," he touched on his entire discography up through Morning Phase, tossed in a cover of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love," reworked "Gamma Ray," and finished out the hour-long performance with a medley of "Where It’s At" / "One Foot in the Grave" / "High 5 (Rock the Catskills)." He'll do it all over again next Sunday night at the same time as Coachella wraps up its second weekend.Set list:1. "Devil's Haircut"2. "Loser"3. "Black Tambourine"4. "Soul of a Man"5. "Think I'm in Love / I Feel Love (Donna Summer cover)"6. "Qué Onda Güero"7. "Gamma Ray" (Alternative Version)8.

  • Arcade Fire Blondie 'Heart of Glass' Cover Live Houston

    Arcade Fire Go Disco on Blondie's 'Heart of Glass' Cover

    Arcade Fire fans attending the Reflektor tour have been consistently treated to previously unheard covers executed lovingly by the Canadian band. Within the last few months, Win Butler and co. have played Stevie Wonder's "Uptight (Everthing's Alright)," Prince's "Controversy," and INXS' "Devil Inside." Last night at Houston's Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, they turned to the disco era, taking on Blondie's 1978 smash "Heart of Glass," with Régine Chassagne standing in for Debbie Harry. Rather than hold up a phone to get it on shaky video, some smart fan just recorded the audio in surprisingly good quality. Enjoy the cover, which is reminiscent of Arcade Fire's "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)," below, via Pretty Much Amazing.If Harry is looking to return the favor, she could do worse than to study this:

  • Angel Haze Beyonce 'Drunk in Love' Cover

    Hear Angel Haze Surf Over Beyonce's 'Drunk in Love'

    Angel Haze has never been one to shy away from making a hit song her own, previously reworking Kanye West's "New Slaves," Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball," and Eminem's "Cleaning Out My Closet," often adding her own brand of autobiographical intensity. Back in January, she took on another big-time track, performing Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love" for the BBC, and now she's released a studio version of the cover, giving it a lot more aggression while removing Jay Z entirely. As opposed to the live rendition, Haze leaves much of the power singing to Bey herself, including the infamous "surfbort" part. Instead, she takes out some of the more Carters' sexier parts, imbuing an "I'm into you, but I don't need you" vibe. Take a listen below.

  • Kendrick Lamar Oscar Pistorius Murder Trial 'Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe'

    Oscar Pistorius Murder Trial Cites Kendrick Lamar Song as Evidence

    Of the many bizarre things to come out of the Oscar Pistorius murder trial, this might be one of the strangest details. The South African double-amputee sprinter shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on February 14, 2013, in what he claims was an accident after mistaking her for an intruder.

  • Sweet Valley Nathan Williams DaVinci 'I Got That Line'

    Hear DaVinci's Mixtape, Produced by Wavves' Sweet Valley Offshoot

    Wavves main man Nathan Williams and his sibling Joel (a.k.a. Kynan) have been making weed-infused beats for a couple of years under the moniker Sweet Valley, most recently releasing the SV mixtape last summer. Now the blunted bros are back, recruiting their Bay Area buddy DaVinci for a joint LP called Ghetto Cuisine (also featuring 100s, Main Attrakionz). To mark the occasion, DaVinci and some pals recorded a video for "I Got That Line," which features gold-specked views of San Francisco over bass-heavy, reggae-intoned beats. Check out the track above, stream Ghetto Cuisine below, and download via Fool's Gold. 

  • Kanye West new album producer Evian Christ

    Kanye West Taps Evian Christ for New Album

    Aside from knowing that Kanye West postponed an Australian tour to work on his album, most of the details surrounding the project have been unsubstantiated. Rumors abound that Rick Rubin and Q-Tip are on board as producers, and Yeezy himself once said that the LP will probably be eight tracks long. Now, though, we know one producer who's definitely involved — England's Evian Christ, whose grimy fingerprints can be heard all over Yeezus ("I'm in It," in particular)."I've got to get home and write an Otis Redding–style beat for him," he told a self-titled magazine reporter in mid-profile. "He e-mailed last night. He wants something that sounds a bit like Otis Redding, a bit like Mobb Deep."That's about as deep into the new album as Christ, a.k.a.

  • Smashing Pumpkins 'Adore' Reissue

    Smashing Pumpkins 'Adore' Reissue Will Span Six Discs

    Given everything he's up to these days — the pro wrestling, the Rumi jams, the Siddhartha epic, his "spiritual memoir," an experimental double album, and two more Smashing Pumpkins albums in the works — it's a wonder Billy Corgan has time to eat or sleep. But fret not, Pumpkins fans, as it seems that Corgan is both eating and sleeping, and still has the time to prep a massive reissue of the band's 1998 album Adore. The new package will feature the oiginal album, a mono mix never before heard on CD, three discs of unreleased material, and a concert DVD. Not too shabby."One thing that might excite fans of the album is that we were able to go back and locate elements from the original sessions that were stored digitally, but never used; such as some of the brilliant work done by Bon Harris," Corgan writes on the Pumpkins' website.

  • Dog Bite's 'Dream Feast' Video Features Rock'n'Roll Love Triangle

    Dog Bite's 'Dream Feast' Video Reps Rock'n'Roll Love Triangle

    Back in November, Atlanta crew Dog Bite released "Dream Feast," a dark shoegazer from their second album Tranquilizers, and now they're back with the song's video. Seen above, frontman Phil Jones plays PJ Detroit, a budding rock star with a very unhappy landlord/love interest. Drummer Tak Takemura is, appropriately enough, "the drummer," a loyal friend to Detroit with conflicted interests. Detroit looks every bit the rock star destined for crash-and-burn, gargling red wine before his gig, hiding his face while walking to the venue, and pushing away autograph-seekers. His fiery performance is juxtaposed wonderfully against the slow burn of "Dream Feast," which is hardly the stuff of such egomaniacal wilding. Enjoy it above and pick up Tranquilizers now via Carpark.
