Before he joined Faith No More, Michael Patton was the singer for the Eureka, California avant-metal band Mr. Bungle.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Is A 2010s Indie Rock Time Capsule

When Universal Pictures started the promotion cycle for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, they clearly didn’t know which angle to push. To be fair, the movie has got a lot going on. Edgar Wright’s geeky action-comedy romance, an adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novel series, follows 22-year-old slacker Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) as he … More »

Watch Ciara’s Striking Video For Her New Protest Song “Rooted”

A few weeks ago, Ciara gave birth to her son Win. Last night, she shared a video that she evidently recorded while she was very, very pregnant.

Svalbard – “Listen To Someone”

The Bristol band Svalbard make a towering, beautiful, pummeling sound that doesn't really fit into any particular genre. They pull from hardcore, from shoegaze, from post-rock, and from black metal, and they transform all of it into a majestic, cathartic blur. Next month, the band is coming back with a new album called When I … More »

Bartees Strange – “Boomer”

Bartees Strange has been around for a couple years now, releasing genre-fluid and often not-quite-classifiable music. Earlier this year, he embarked on a unique project, releasing Say Goodbye To Pretty Boy, an EP featuring only covers of the National. (He followed it up with a couple more.) Maybe it … More »

Cardi B Is On OnlyFans Now

"Man, we should sell that porn." That was Cardi B, rapping on the Migos track "Motor Sport," way back in 2017. Today, Cardi is once again a topic of a whole lot of conversation thanks to her extremely horny new single "WAP." And so it only makes sense that Cardi has … More »

Bruce Hornsby – “Anything Can Happen” (Feat. Leon Russell)

In a few days, Bruce Hornsby will release a new album called Non-Secure Connection. It'll feature a whole lot of collaborators, mostly from younger generations.

Anjimile – “Baby No More”

Last month, the Boston-based musician Anjimile announced his debut album, Giver Taker, with the wonderful "Maker."

Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” Is Good Music And Better Spectacle

The professional-asshole radio host sits upright in his office chair. He tilts his head to the side, and he scrunches up his eyebrows in mock shock. "There's some whores in this house," he bleats, his adenoidal voice cutting through the air. "There's some whores in this house." He reads through some song lyrics, substituting "p-word" … More »
