  • Bat for Lashes'

    Bat for Lashes Goes to a Bleak Beach in 'All Your Gold' Clip

    Bat for Lashes might not be the first artist you'd associate with the beach, but in a way Natasha Khan has as much of a coastal claim as anyone this side of Bethany Cosentino. After all, though the U.K. singer and songwriter's music might at times evoke the rich, woodsy mysticism of premodern England, she calls the seaside town of Brighton her home. And like the cover art for her Karate Kid-influenced single "Daniel," from 2010 whopper Two Suns, Khan's latest video finds her on a shoreline, this time dancing expressively. Although we've already noted the Gotye-ishness of "All Your Gold" — the lyrics even coyly refer to "someone that I knew before" — the song's video eschews body painting for strict black-and-white, right down to Khan's open-backed outfits.

  • Rick Ross and Young Jeezy

    Did Rick Ross and Young Jeezy Fight at the BET Hip Hop Awards?

    The BET Hip Hop Awards won't air until October 9, but the taping of the event made headlines for less-than-ideal reasons over the weekend. As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution notes, Rick Ross and Young Jeezy entered into an altercation backstage that spilled over into the parking area on Saturday night in Atlanta, according to eyewitnesses.

    Watch Foo Fighters' Global Citizen Festival Set Plus Neil Young Superjam

    Good things can come out of being in New York City's Central Park after dark. A star-studded lineup of mostly rock-leaning acts took to the Great Lawn on Saturday as part of the Global Citizen Festival, dedicated to fighting global poverty, and footage from the event has surfaced online (via the Audio Perv). Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, the Black Keys, Band of Horses, and K'naan performed in front of a crowd of more than 60,000, according to the New York Times. John Legend also made an unannounced appearance to perform John Lennon's "Imagine."Watch Foo Fighters' full, muscular set below, complete with some of the arena-ready post-grunge band's biggest hits, including "Everlong," "My Hero," and "Learn to Fly." As frontman and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl mentioned, the set was the last Foo Fighters have scheduled for a while, which is typical of bands between albums.

  • Death Grips No Love Deep Web

    Download Death Grips' Frenzied 'NO LOVE DEEP WEB' LP

    Death Grips have been fairly quiet, at least by the Sacramento noise-rap group's chaotic standards, since unveiling an addictive interactive video for their 2012 major-label debut The Money Store's Salt-n-Pepa-flavored salvo "I've Seen Footage." But now the album that they scrapped their summer dates to finish, NO LOVE DEEP WEB, has arrived.Death Grips claim their label, Sony subsidiary Epic, hadn't heard the album yet.

  • Soundgarden's Chris Cornell

    Chris Cornell Confirms New Soundgarden Scorcher Isn't an Eminem Song

    The arrival of Soundgarden's thunderous new single "Been Away Too Long" on the Internet this week brought about many reactions. Grown men wept. Children hid under their beds. Skeptical music bloggers rejoiced that what they were hearing sounded quite a bit more toothsome than the the grunge-rock survivors' first new song since reuniting, Avengers blockbuster "Live to Rise." Nobody, probably, thought about Eminem.Nobody, that is, except Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who actually engaged in a fairly astute bit of pop criticism in a radio interview yesterday as he contrasted his lyrical approach with that of the real Slim Shady.

    Christina Aguilera's 'Your Body' Video Puts Violence In Its Sex

    After a slow trickle of seconds-long teasers, Christina Aguilera has at last unleashed the music video for her comeback banger "Your Body." And without giving away too much, it's fair to say the video gives new meaning to the term "femme fatale." An opening warning tells us that "no men were harmed in the making of this video," but for some reason Xtina has an online psychic who correctly assures her she has a "killer week." Blue splatter and pink glitter ensue, and in the end Aguilera is watching Lucille Ball on an old TV, as if to assure us, "Hey, this is comedy!" It might take us a few more viewings to get the joke, but at least there's enough amazing absurdity going on to make that prospect sound entertaining."Your Body" is the first single off Aguilera's seventh studio album, Lotus, due November 13 on RCA.

  • Animal Collective

    Animal Collective's Deakin Explains Sticky Kickstarter Situation (Sort Of)

    You know what they say: There's no such thing as a free trip to Mali. The recent back-and-forth between Amanda Palmer and Steve Albini over crowd-sourcing ended with Palmer announcing she would pay her musicians. But it also shifted focus toward other artists crowd-funding musical projects, including a Kickstarter campaign by Animal Collective's Deakin (government name: Josh Dibb) that raised almost $26,000 three years ago.As Pitchfork reports, the money was supposed to fund a trip to perform at a festival in Mali, along with the making of a book and CD, plus a charitable donation to a Mali nonprofit group that fights slavery. That was back in 2009, but donors have criticized Dibb for failing to deliver the promised Kickstarter rewards or to give much reason for the delay. Dibb told Pitchfork there's been, well, a bit of a misunderstanding.

  • Glenn Beck and Muse's Matthew Bellamy

    Muse Say Their Music Keeps Getting 'Hijacked' By Conservatives

    Glenn Beck must be giddy. The right-wing talker's long-beloved band Muse will appear as the musical guests on an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, and their sixth album The 2nd Law is streaming now. Less happy about Muse's embrace by Beck and other conservatives, however, are the bandmembers themselves.Muse's drummer Dom Howard has previously slammed Beck as "a crazy right-winger," and frontman Matt Bellamy is an interview to be published in the Observer on Sunday, based on an excerpt posted by the Guardian. "In the U.S. the conspiracy theory subculture has been hijacked by the right to try to take down people like Obama and put forward right-wing libertarianism," Bellamy is quoted as saying.
