• Cut Copy 'Meet Me in a House of Love' Video 'Free Your Mind' deluxe edition

    Cut Copy Guest on Weirdo Talk Show for 'Meet Me in a House of Love' Video

    It's been a little over seven months since Cut Copy released their fourth album, Free Your Mind, and the Aussie dance act is still exploring the LP's trippy-hippie vibes. Their latest effort is an amusing video for "Meet Me in a House of Love," in which a hirsute gentleman does a dead-on impression of an over-enthusiastic talk show host, pretend-interviewing cardboard copies of the band and miming along to the song. The clip also heralds the upcoming release of the Free Your Mind  deluxe edition, which features five additional tracks: "In These Arms of Love," "Like Any Other Day," "Lights Shine On," "I Wish the Sun Would Grow Today," and "Believers." That's due out July 22 via Loma Vista, while Cut Copy are currently touring the U.S., with Classixx supporting a handful of dates.

  • How to Dress Well 'What Is This Heart' Stream

    Stream How to Dress Well's Self-Leaked '"What Is This Heart?"' Album

    How to Dress Well mastermind Tom Krell has been slowly releasing tracks off of his new album "What Is This Heart" for the past couple of months, beginning with the gorgeous "Words I Don't Remember," the sublime "Repeat Pleasure" and the eerie video for "Face Again." But rather than wait for the record's June 24 unveiling via Weird World, Krell has gone and posted the entire thing on his own at whatisthisheart.com and tweeting, "stream til the label tell me to take it down :)." Whether the label bosses don't care or just aren't awake yet, the dozen tracks that make up the follow-up to 2012's Total Loss are there for your listening pleasure, and the limited edition deluxe double-vinyl LP is still available for pre-order.

  • TV on the Radio Vanessa Bayer Sound Advice Video

    Watch TV on the Radio Talk '90210' and Race With 'SNL' Star Vanessa Bayer

    While SNL is on its summer break, cast member Vanessa Bayer is keeping busy with the excellent web series Sound Advice, in which she plays media coach Janessa Slater, doling out terrible wisdom to musical guests. Following an awkward chat with Drake, her latest client/victim is TV on the Radio, whom she sat down with at Governors Ball. "Is it hard to be in a band while also being full-time baristas?" she asks, kicking off almost four minutes of uncomfortable conversation. Frontman Tunde Adebimpe, who's previously showed off his comedic chops on Portlandia, is the most willing participant, subtly chastising Bayer's hosting abilities while his bandmates seemingly border on breaking character in response to her offensive questions.The best segment comes when she brings up Beverly Hills 90210, wondering which role they each identify with most.

  • Ice-T

    Q&A: Ice-T Returns With Body Count to Call Out Pop Stars and Scare 'SVU' Fans

    It's been 22 years since Ice-T released the highly controversial "Cop Killer" with his thrash-metal band Body Count, and though the pioneering rapper has been busier playing a cop on TV since 2000, he hasn't given up on making more in-your-face, scary-yet-funny music. Today the group returns with its fifth album, Manslaughter, the follow-up to 2006's Murder 4 Hire, and the 14-track release shows that Ice hasn't lost any of that rage and twisted humor. There's the the grindhouse video for the critic-threatening "Talk Shit, Get Shot," which features Ice and his band murdering anyone who Tweets bad things about him. There’s also the ode to metal ladies "Bitch in the Pit" and the hip-hop-star skewering, Kardashian-referencing "Pop Bubble," which features Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta growling over the chorus and Ice T instructing "so-called hardcore motherfuckers" to eat a dick.

  • Spoon New Song Video Primavera

    See Spoon Debut a Raucous New Song at Primavera Sound

    Spoon have really been playing the details of their next album close to the vest. We know that the Austin band is going to do something next week, thanks to a photo they posted that says only, "SPOON R.I.P. JUNE 10." In early March, they uploaded a 27-second studio video showing a squalling segment from an unknown song. Last year, frontman Britt Daniel told SPIN's Marc Hogan that their new material had a little more soul than usual. Plus, there are the recent reports that they left longtime label Merge for Loma Vista, which is distributed by Universal.All that doesn't add up to much, but thanks to a fan at Primavera Sound, we can now see footage of Spoon performing a brand new track almost in its entirety. "I came home last night, I heard no good news," Daniel sings at the beginning over a tense groove that turns into an upbeat chorus.

  • Smash Mouth Third Eye Blind Beef Feud

    All-Star Beef: Smash Mouth Reignite Feud With Third Eye Blind

    At a festival headlined by Outkast and the Cure, at which TV on the Radio debuted no less than three new songs, our pet favorite news item has to do with beef between two '90s nostalgia acts you might not have even known were still playing.Last weekend, BottleRock Napa hosted both Smash Mouth and Third Eye Blind, booking them on separate stages at the same time slot in a cruel twist of fate for concertgoers looking to relive that specific corss-section of the past. Apparently the beautiful scenery and abudance of quality wine didn't provide enough good vibes for Smash Mouth frontman Steve Harwell. According to various people on Twitter, at one point in the set, he said, "Third Eye Blind can suck my dick."Harsh. But whatever ill will exists between the bands didn't start in Northern California.

  • Angel Haze Ludacris '22 Jump Street' Theme Song

    Hear Angel Haze and Ludacris' Wacky '22 Jump Street' Theme Song

    The upcoming 22 Jump Street sequel finds Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum going undercover at a college, and spring break plays a big part as the two detectives try to crack their next case. Turns out the producers enlisted Angel Haze and Ludacris for a dance-driven theme song that features a psychosis-inducing beat wobbling wildly beneath verses that detail the plot. It's ready-made for an opening montage or a crazy party scene with Luda dropping lines like "We infiltrate the dealers and find the damn supply," and Haze rhyming about "Schmidt, Jenko, the whole damn crew." It's rare that a film-driven song stands the test of time (outside of Ray Parker, Jr.'s "Ghostbusters," that is), but the single will be out June 10, while the movie hits theaters on June 13.

  • 50 Cent First Pitch Masturbation Injury 'Animal Ambition' Video

    50 Cent Blames First Pitch Woes on 'Excessive Masturbation' Injury

    50 Cent's awful first pitch continues to be the biggest talking point surrounding the release of his fifth album, Animal Ambition. The Queens rapper continued milking that possibly phony piece of publicity today when he took part in a Reddit AMA. Take it away, Fiddy:Well, how about that? This, from the same man who, in 2012, tweeted out his four-step plan for people to stop masturbating, which he believes is a sin: "Step 1. To avoid the urge to masturbate stop going to porn sites. Step 2. Make a conscious decision not to turn your head after people walk by you. Step 3. Do not go to strip clubs. Step 4. Do not look at lust filled magazines."Either he's back on the jackin' wagon or he's just playing us. We'll go with the latter. Meanwhile, 50 also released a video for the title track for the new album.

  • Ban Metallica Glastonbury Petition James Hetfield Hunter

    Glastonbury Fans Try to Ban Metallica Over James Hetfield's Hunting Habits

    Though he's not quitting his day job, Metallica frontman James Hetfield has a new gig: Narrating the History Channel's upcoming series The Hunt, which chronicles a trek to Kodiak, Alaska, to kill brown bears.That news is not going over well with fans of the Glastonbury festival, which Metallica will headline this year alongside Arcade Fire, Kasabian, Jack White, and the Black Keys. Someone started a Facebook page called "Remove Metallica from Glastonbury Festival for their support of Bear Hunting," with the obvious intent of getting the metal legends banned from the bill. The page, which went up on May 25, features this description: "Metallica's lead singer James Hetfield is a big game hunter and promoter. This is incompatible with Glastonbury Festivals ideals."Hetfield is, indeed, an avid hunter and member of the NRA."I love my guns.

  • Courtney Love Personalized Rose Breed

    Courtney Love Wants to Fund Her Own Breed of Glittery Rose

    When you're rich and have the money to get pretty much anything you want, you might as well dream big. Courtney Love is certainly dreaming big, and somewhat scientifically, with her wish to fund the development of "a hybrid rose that's glittering and silver" and have it named in her honor. This bit of info comes from the latest installment in her "Courtney Love on" YouTube series, in which she mainly talks about random topics while sitting in the back of an SUV. "To say I'm not crazy about roses is crazy, because I love roses," she says at the beginning of the clip, referencing the incredible number of Hole fans who've made public claims that she has a thing against the preferred flower of high school beaus. She goes onto inform us that Dolly Parton, Metallica, and Loretta Lynn all have a specific breed of the flower forever immortalized with their names.
