To flesh out their already blistering sound, Sebastien Grainger and John F. Keeler were joined by Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra, Letterman's house band, letting the DFA 1979 cohorts to focus on their drum-and-bass attack. "How about them guys?" Letterman said, before pointing at one of the house band's members and saying, "That could've been you, buddy!" The Physical World is available now via via Last Gang.

He was apparently diagnosed with a migraine and was able to perform his second of two shows at Rod Laver Arena later that night.The reports come from two tabloids, Australia's Woman's Day, and the States' very own TMZ. The former spoke with an eyetwitness, Loraine Terry, whose daughter was undergoing an MRI at the same hospital. "Everyone was moved out of the waiting and consulting rooms. We were the only ones left apart from doctors and nurses — we couldn't leave as the MRI wasn't finished," she said. "Next thing we knew, Kanye was stretchered in surrounded by security. He had one side of his face covered with something white.

    Meghan Trainor, Jimmy Fallon, and the Roots Perform 'All About That Bass' With Toys

    On top of being a big part of The Summer of Ass, Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" has made it so far into the pop culture universe that she got the revered Jimmy Fallon-Roots toy-instrument send-up, an honor previously bestowed upon "Let It Go," "Call Me Maybe," and "Blurred Lines." The 20-year-old visited The Tonight Show to perform the body-positive hit with Fallon and his elite house band, imbuing it with the childlike charm that's become the host's trademark trait. In case you're wondering exactly who is playing what, the show helpfully provided the full credits:Jimmy Fallon — wood block, bass drum, Casio keyboardMeghan Trainor — vocals, triangleQuestlove — hand clappersMark Kelley — kazooKamal Gray — xylophoneJames Poyser — melodicaCaptain Kirk — ukuleleFrank Knuckles — bongosTuba Gooding Jr.

    Pussy Riot Members Launch Independent Russian News Service

    As you might have heard, Russia isn't exactly the most transparent of countries when it comes to government dealings, the criminal justice system, and the media. Pussy Riot have been on the receiving end of Russia's corrupt war on free speech and harsh prison conditions — and authorities denied both through state-run media outlets. With that in mind, Pussy Riot's two most prominent members, the formerly jailed Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, have launched their own media company, MediaZona, to cover the country's government, law enforcement, courts, prisons, and everything else that other outlets are barred from objectively reporting about."Since our release from prison six months ago we've felt that Russian media are no longer able to cover what is going on," Tolokonnikova said in a statement.

  • Willow Smith

    Willow Smith Whips Up a Great Cover of King Krule's 'Easy Easy'

    To start off, let us remind you that Willow Smith is 13. And while her dad is busy dancing on a Segway at Burning Man, the young actress/singer/whatever-else-she-feels-like-doing was apparently refining her musical chops and whipping up a cover of (wait for it) King Krule's "Easy Easy." She replaces the not-much-older Briton's accented baritone with her light, Lorde-like vocals on the track, which originally hails from Krule's 2013 debut album, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. Perhaps we should've seen something like this coming, considering Willow previously sampled Radiohead on "Sugar and Spice." Still, it comes as an incredibly pleasant surprise. Enjoy it below.

    Alt-J Have the 'Left Hand Free' Blues on 'Letterman'

    As they gear up for the release of their second album, This Is All Yours, Alt-J stopped by Letterman to play the bluesy, label-pleasing single "Left Hand Free" with no added frills. The star of the performance is Thom Green's propulsive bare-bones drumming, which created a glitchy beat thanks to his use of a cowbell and tambourine over traditional cymbals. The Leeds quartet is ending this week on a big note. Aside from the Letterman spot, they released two videos for the innuendo-heavy "Every Other Freckle." The two versions aren't all that different from one another, except for the fact that one stars a man and the other stars a woman in nearly identical footage. There are surreal forest scenes, an angry caveman, a kitten bouncing on a bean bag, and some close-ups of asses.

It's all brooding and anger from frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt, but what else would you expect after 2013's excellent You're Nothing?

  • Jack White Blogotheque Acoustic French palace Château de Fontainebleau

    Jack White Performs Unplugged Set at Famed French Palace

    Before getting his haircut and attending a slew of baseball games, Jack White taped a special performance in France for La Blogotheque's "Take Away" series at the royal Palace of Fontainebleau outside of Paris. Minus the camera crew, it's a completely unplugged two-song set at the chateau, which makes perfect sense given that White is a bit of a Luddite and loves all things vintage. He begins with the White Stripes' White Blood Cells cut "The Same Boy You've Always Known," wandering through the palace halls until he comes across his three backing musicians. Once they finish, he pauses, then silently leaves the spacious room.
