• Billy Corgan Amazon Rant 'Adore' Reissue Smashing Pumpkins

    Billy Corgan's Blood Boils After Amazon Leaks 'Adore' Reissue Track List

    Retail giant Amazon has been pissing a lot of people off recently. There's their ongoing battle with Hachette, in which they've refused to allow pre-orders of the publisher's books in a fight over revenue. They did the same to Warner Bros., only with DVDs and Blu-ray discs in a similar dispute. Amazon's latest kerfuffle pales in comparison, but it's still worth noting because their latest critic is none other than Billy Corgan.The Smashing Pumpkins mastermind has been prepping the reissue of 1998's Adore for months now (maybe years), and just when he was finally going to release the massive track list to his loyal fans, he discovered Amazon had already gone and done that, despite promises that they wouldn't."Great news: ADORE box set track list to be announced on http://SmashingPumpkinsNexus.com  later today.

  • Kristeen Young Dave Grohl Pat Smear Ferguson 'Pearl of a Girl'

    See Kristeen Young, Dave Grohl, Pat Smear Blast Through 'Ferguson' Performance

    Unfortunately, the release of Kristeen Young's excellent new album The Knife Shift was overshadowed by accusations that she was to blame for Morrissey's latest tour cancellation after she gave him a "horrendous cold." Considering his past health woes, it seems pretty unfair that Moz is blaming anyone else for his maladies (seriously, man, just live in bubble already) but what make it even worse is that, after Young denied the allegations, Morrissey guitarist Jesse Tobias posted a screed accusing her of being a liar, and signed off by saying, "Good Riddance to False Friends." Ouch.Luckily for Young, she has a more loyal friend in the form of the supremely chill Dave Grohl, who played drums on The Knife Shift's 11 tracks, and added guitar on five.

  • The Drums 'Encyclopedia' new album cover track list

    The Drums Announce 'Magic' New Album 'Encyclopedia'

    After releasing the skull-rattling track "Magic Mounain" two days ago, the Drums have revealed that their upcoming third album, Encyclopedia, will be released September 23. "Encyclopedia is full of magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout," founding member Jonny Pierce says of the follow-up to 2011's Portamento. "We were feeling very angry, confused, and alone when we made this album, and we wanted to be very honest this time around, even if being honest meant making some people uncomfortable.

  • MTV VMA Nominations Nominees Beyonce

    Beyonce Dominates 2014 MTV VMA Nominations With Eight Nods

    Considering she put out a video for every track on her Essential self-titled album, it's no surprise that Beyoncé is poised to rule the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. That's not to say she doesn't deserve the eight nods she received this morning — the clips were pretty fantastic, especially the steamy one for "Drunk in Love," which is up for Video of the Year. Bey also received nominations for the strip-club-set "Partition," which won't make Bill O'Reilly happy, and the self-affirming "Pretty Hurts." The nominees, which were announced via Snapchat earlier today, are then led by Iggy Azalea and Eminem, with seven apiece.

  • Drake Duets With Brian McKnight, Beefs With Blake Griffin at the 2014 ESPYs

    Drake Duets With Brian McKnight, Beefs With Blake Griffin at the 2014 ESPYs

    Based on his versatile entertainment career, love of sports, and willingness to make fun of himself, we knew that Drake would be a terrific ESPYs host. Still, that didn't prepare us for some of the hilarity that ensued at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater on Wednesday night — who expected the rapper to engage in an ever-escalating faux-feud with Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin? Summarizing all of the jokes would ruin the fun, but we'll grudgingly admit that the cameo by Chris Brown made us laugh. (Breezy later calling himself "America's sweetheart"? Not so much.) Elsewhere in the night, Drake made some well-intentioned, but risqué, jokes in his monologue, paid tribute to sports mistresses in a duet with Brian McKnight called "Side Pieces," read poems to WNBA star Skylar Diggins, and sang the song "Honorable Mention" for all the losers in the building.

  • Blood Orange Dev Hynes Sia 'Chandelier' Remix

    Blood Orange Sings Over Remix of Sia's 'Chandelier'

    After giving a TED Talk, scoring Gia Coppola's Palo Alto, and releasing his own music videos, Blood Orange's Devonté Hynes somehow found the time to not only remix Sia's "Chandelier," but to write and record his own verses for the 1000 Forms of Fear single. The austere, anxious vibe matches that of his Cupid Deluxe LP, adding lots of reverb and a metallic edge to the Aussie hitmaker's vocals. He takes Sia's powerful chorus and subtly buries it in the mix, making the in-your-face original sound more like the singer was screaming at you from the next room over. Stream it below, courtesy of Spotify.

  • Austra Duran Duran 'American Science' cover Making Patterns Rhyme

    Austra Release Sparse, Synth-Heavy Cover of Duran Duran's 'American Science'

    The Duran Duran tribute album Making Patterns Rhyme is due out July 15 and as yet another preview, following Warpaint's sooty interpretation of "The Chauffer" and Beliefs' shoegaze take on "Sound of Thunder," you can now hear Austra's cover of the '86 Notorious cut "American Science." The Toronto trio strip away the horn-heavy pomp of the original in favor of sparse synths and twitchy percussion, leaving the focus on Katie Stelmanis' vocals. It's a similar sound to their recently released single "Habitat," which comes from the EP of the same name. Meanwhile, you can pick up Making Patterns Rhymefrom Manimal Records, who will donate all proceeds to Amnesty International.

  • Foo Fighters Dave Grohl HBO Documentary Panel TCAs

    Dave Grohl Drops F-Bombs, Praises 'Shithole' Studios While Promoting HBO Show

    Although Dave Grohl directed a documentary and has a few acting credits, he's still somewhat of an outsider when it comes to the Hollywood industry. The Foo Fighters frontman appeared a bit out of place when he took the stage at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills to talk about his upcoming HBO series, Sonic Highways, which documents the band's multi-city recording of their upcoming eighth album.As the Associated Press reports, Grohl's phone rang in the midde of his talk, his clip-on microphone fell off his jacket, and he peppered the usually staid convention with a good dose of F-bombs.
